A really good value hotel opposite the station in Geneva. Very, Very clean, basic but perfectly adequate. Some of the hotels in Geneva are very expensive and this for the price is great. The breakfast is good and varied. You need to ask for a quiet room if the weather is hot because the street at the back of the hotel is a bit noisy and with the window open it is very noisy. However, there are fans in the rooms. The hotel reception offers complimentary coffee, tea and cold drinks which is very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if possible. Higher floors would be an advantage.

I've been with my family in Hotel Bernina for two nights and I think it's good option if you a decent hotel close to the city center. It is located right in front of the central station and almost every trams pass nearby. As in all other hotels in Geneve, you will receive the Geneve Card that will allow you to travel freely in every public transports. Especially for this hotel, it will be useful. The hotel is quite old and the common areas are not very light but the room was nice and clean. The staff was helpful, but not very fluent in English. The breakfast was also acceptable. Some of the streets nearby don't look very safe at night but we didn't have any kind of problem during our stay.

Enjoyed my stay at the Bernina except for the fact that it is Europe, so no air conditioning. There was a fan on a stand though, which we placed in front of the open window. However, window opened onto a balcony which was shared with at least the room next door, so could not comfortably leave window open during night or when we went out. Carpeting definitely needs to be upgraded or just fresh carpet. Something needs to be done with it.

Room 603 has lovely view of the fountain in the lake. It is about 5 blocks from the lakefront downhill (well, you gotta climb coming back) on the Rue des Alpes, and you pass through a lovely park just before you get to the lakefront. Also steps from the "Metro" shopping center in the train station with a lot of shops. An H&M store right next door, and a "Holy Cow" burger joint and a McDonalds around the corner. Starbucks is around corner and down the street a little way.

Was there with a friend, and the twin beds are both on one frame, but each individually sheeted. No cover sheet, but a duvet. Who needs a duvet in the summer? Particularly with no a/c?

There "cold buffet" for breakfast consists of coffee, tea, milk, juice, croissant (brought to you in a basket with a baguette), hard boiled eggs, good bread for toasting, fromage blanc, fresh fruit, 3 cold cereals, ham and cheese, good assortment of jellies. Not bad for free. Better than some.

Good value, and as with most Swiss hotels, a free transportation pass is provided good on metro, busses, streetcars, light rail and yellow boat that crosses the lake with 3 different destinations.

The train station is directly across the street, but I never heard a train. Because of having to open window you will hear normal street noises, so as I noted, the higher up the room is the better.

Very deep tub, good for soaking, so bring bubble bath or whatever you like for soaking.

Room Tip: I would guess any of the rooms ending in -03. The higher up the less street noise.

Hotel is very nice and close to attraction and public transportation. Rooms are not large but need to contain tea set beside what they have. Hotel is comfortable and clean. Bathrooms are clean and convenient. Wifi is inclusive in the rooms rate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel are quieter and have good access to Wi-Fi
