“Go for it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

As someone else here said, don't count the entrance, the rooms can easily be given 4* cleanliness and quality.

Hearty breakfast and coffee and helpful staff. Price is very good compared to Geneva prices!

Stayed for two nights. It's in the heart of Geneva, situated minutes from the river, bars and restaurants.

The lady who owns the place was so helpful and the staff very friendly and also helpful.

The setting is quirky and the rooms are very clean.

We booked this hotel for a group of adults on a study tour 14 months ahead, confirmed the reservation six months out, again three months before our dates..We were assured each time that all was in order and that we should not be concerned. When reconfirming four weeks ahead, shockingly, the hotel said they could not possibly accommodate us. We were left scrambling for a hotel that would be able to take the group at very short notice.
I cannot recommend this hotel with any confidence.

I stayed for one (Saturday) night. Even though I reserved single room, I got the double bed. My room was ready before noon (check in is from 1.30pm). Location is great, stuff frendly, room clean with good free internet connection. Entrance door are locked from 7pm for security reasons, but the reception is open 24 hours. Recommend!

We stayed for two nights. We thought location was good, near the train station and near many public transorts to move around easily (15 walk to the center anyway). The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good too. Room was simple, clean, perfect. Good price for what is offered.

We stayed at hotel les arcades for 2 nights with our three children. The location is quite central. Of course, not the most beautiful place of Geneva because it´s near the train station but you can basically walk yourself around. Staff was helpful and breakfast and decoration (asian style) were nice. I found it very adequate and reasonably priced.

One of my favourite hotels of my entire Europe trip despite it is a 2-star hotel, with no air-conditioned. Travelled during summer period but it is still cool and airy in the room. The hotel staff are warm & friendly.
Breakfast is good, with bread, 3 different types of ham , 2 types of cheese, hard boiled eggs , cereal with milk (basically is rather standard for all the breakfast in Europe hotels). But most importantly, there is a Nespresso machine which made great coffee that perked me up every morning!
Free WIFI with great signal & speed. In addition, the hotel provides a Geneva tram card which allows free tram rides during the duration of the hotel stay.
The interior and the decor of the hotel is cozy. Love the cozy feeling.
Location is good, about 5 mins walk from Geneva main station. Walking distance of about 15 mins to Lake Geneva.
Overall, I strongly recommend this hotel to travellers.
