Atel - Calvy

Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed 2 nights here, loved Geneva but would not stay here again. The room was pretty awful really, run down and barely adequate. On the plus side, the staff were really good, helpful and welcoming, and we enjoyed the breakfast!

We found a fairly run-down, old-fashioned property that was certainly not the three stars it claims. Everything fell short of a good standard. For instance, we even found a middle-aged person in his underwear asleep on the bed when we checked-in, because the hotel didn't know the room they had allocated us was occupied! The car-park for which an extra fee is charged is not under cover but in a non-secure carpark open to public access. The breakfast was terrible and not recommended. However, it is reasonably well-located for the old part of the town and the Saturday morning farmers market.

You are in Geneva so this is 3 stars, everywhere else in Europe this will be 2. Very basic and cheap, rather old and anonymous building, tiny doors and walls, hostel like decor. No specific complain if this was a 2 stars hotel but pretends to be a 3 stars and above all charges accordingly. If you do not find anything else in Geneva at a reasonable price it can be considered but only under those circumstances.

I enjoyed staying at Calvy.
In this expensive city it was nice to find this hotel well located, near to the Old City in the corner of a main street with tram, supermarket, stores
coffeeshops and restaurants.

The room had microwave oven and fridge, safebox,good bed.
Breakfast was continental plus juices,eggs and fruits, what is quite reasonable.
Nice staff,helpful.
I would return to this hotel

Room Tip: Better ask room in the back side

Calvy is an older hotel. Near to the 2 main shopping streets in Geneva and the public transport. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy but dated. Breakfast was a good continental and included in the overall price. Would stay here again.

Stayed for one night as part of a business trip. Hotel was fine just to sleep in but I'm glad I wasn't staying longer or paying for it myself! Facilities in room were very basic (old tv, weak shower, very thin sheets and thin walls so I could hear every time the person in the next room walked around, plugged in phone charger etc.) Breakfast selection was poor - coffee and cornflakes. Geneva is expensive but at over £110 a night I would still expect more than this.

We stayed overnight for one night. The hotel was quite a bit out from the centre of town and not that easy to find way back in. Found it very `muggy' overnight. Decor and facilities and breakfast all a bit basic, but perfectly OK for an overnight stay.....just wouldn't have wanted to be there for a holiday.
