“Perfect Airport Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Our family of four stayed one night in two connecting rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Geneva Airport in January before flying back to the US. The Hotel is a very clean, modern hotel and offers everything you expect from the HI Express brand: Free Internet, Good beds, free and high quality breakfast and free shuttle from the to the Airport. Check in was a bit slow due to a large group checking in at the same time and only one person at the front desk, however everything else during our stay was perfect.

My family stayed here for one night on the return from a week's skiing in the Alps. Perfectly clean, very comfortable and good value.

The free transfer (run every 20 minutes) to the airport was very welcome.

Stayed in HI Expree GVA IN December 2012 for a week. Hotel is very close to the airport and their shuttle runs approx every 20 mins, although once I was waiting for 40 mins and had to call the hotel so they can send it over. Rooms fairly comfortable, however very basic. Beware if reception staff: when I arrived and asked if there is a wifi connection in rooms they said that no wifi is available and "sold" me a cable for 75CHF (charge for a month, which is cheaper than getting it for a week and paying daily rate). Once in a room I tried the cable connection to discover that it's painfully slow and disrupting every 5 mins for about a minute. Also tried wireless connections available and found old good Swisscom, which is perfect and u can get yourself 30 hrs of browsing for just 45CHF. Went to reception right away to return the cable and staff was really surprised they had wifi in the hotel... (Seriously!!!).
Breakfast fair for a 3 star hotel, really basic and nothing to be mentioned.
There are no dining facilities in hotel (well except vending machine with a choice of 2 sandwiches and crisps, nuts). I arrived on Sunday so everything was closed around and ended up paying 70CHF for a burger and soup in nearby Movenpick.
All in all, average hotel for a star rating it bears.

Stayed December 2012, traveled solo

Everytime I fly from Geneva, which is quite often, I stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Apart from a great value for money, the hotel is located perfectly and has great amenities for an Express. With a reliable shuttle service and very friendly staff, the overall experience is a great one. The rooms are spacious and well lit with a great ambiance and good facilities. The Front Desk staff in particular are worth a mention.

As a Priority Club Rewards member making reservations is very easy and as far as I'm concerned, all documented preferences are taken care of.

The only issue being that there aren't any smoking rooms, there's nothing else to complain about with this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the railway tracks rather than the parking lot are a better bet.

Very nice place near Geneva Airport, when you check in make sure to obtain your free publicm transportation pass for buses,trainsand trams in Geneva. Very good connections to the city center. Breakfast could be better (only continental, no hot breakfast)

As the title says, I believe this hotels best feature is its location/convenience to Geneva airport.

We arrived at the airport during, what can only be described as a snow storm. Well done Geneva airport, as our local airport. Gatwick, would have been shut, as it cant handle more than a dusting of snow. Anyway, i digress...

Firstly, the hotel offers a free shuttle, which does a loop to and from the airport, with the frequency of every 20 minutes, and when you arrive in unfamiliar surroundings, this is ideal. The driver was friendly and loaded our cases in to the minibus for us. When we arrived at the hotel we thanked the driver (for our free taxi), and entered the lobby, I would however, add at this time say that no one else thanked the driver, which showed a lack of class, and a double dose of arrogance.

The hotel is quite big, but the reception was quiet when we arrived. The receptionist seemed friendly, and appeared to go the extra mile in explaining the best way to get to the City Centre etc. We were also given a free travel card, which allowed us access to Trams, Trains and Buses for nothing, within the vicinity of Geneva.

The room, which was on the top floor was fairly spacious, and did us fine, especially considering we were only staying for one night. The room had a walk in shower, a tv with 50 odd channels , covering most nationalities. We also had the usual lotions etc, including shower gel with the hotels compliments. The only negative i have to say about the room, is that there was no free Wifi in it, and for this you would have to sit in the lobby or bar downstairs. It was a shame, as we had just come from the Holiday Inn in Amsterdam, which did have free Wifi in the room. If you wanted access to the Internet in your room, it would have costed 10 Swiss Francs for 24 hours.

The breakfast was included in the cost of the room and was very nice, with a good selection, of the Continental mould. There was also a bar, where you could order drinks and limited snacks. We ordered many drinks...

Overall we were pleased we stayed here, in readiness for our trip to the Alps, and found the airport shuttle, and therefore the location and the hotel to be perfect for our requirements.

small rooms but clean and neat, just what you would expect of the brand. Great location for the airport although watch out as they do charge for parking. Also a bit strange that there is no wifi in rooms - as a result the small lobby is full of individuals "clicking away on their devices".
For those that way inclined there is a large casino in the more expensive and luxurious hotel next door.
