“Excellent location, good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We started our Switzerland trip with 3 nights in Geneva, and our experience at this hotel was quite good. Firstly, the location is great - 1/2 minute walk to a bus stop, and the hotel gives you a card which entitles you to free transport all over the city. The rooms are very small, but I guess that is fairly typical of the city. There is free wifi, and a supermarket (Denner) a minute away. The hotel staff were (on the whole) friendly and helpful. The only small negative was that the breakfast was highly overpriced and not that great.

The Ibis Geneva Centre Nations is extremely convenient for work in Geneva. A quick train ride from the airport to the main station in town, and then either a short walk or a stop bus ride puts you right in front of the hotel. Very close to UN offices. The hotel is exceptionally clean. Rooms are small and basic, which is fine, and given the price of hotels in Geneva, it is a great deal. After meetings during the day, the hotel wi-fi is fast and always works, which is very important to me. Staff is mostly friendly, and front desk is always helpful

The hotel is clean and close located to the main train station. Our reservation included the public transportation ticket which was very convenience. However, it has only 2 iron rooms, one in floor the 1st and a second in the 8th floor. The irons are old and I there was a line of two people on a Saturday morning. I can't imagine how is it during the week.

The rooms are laminated and for me it is a plus cause carpets are normally very dusty.

We stayed in this place for a single night as part of my Euro trip with my friends. As much as it was close to the train station, the hotel was situated in a more quieter neighborhood and it was nice.

There was access to good public transportation and one block away, there were plenty of restaurants. United Nations was like 15 minutes away and the tram to CERN was 2 minutes walk from the hotel.

The rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained.

I would defintely recommend this place if anyone is visiting Geneva and would like to be close to the train station and it wasnt very expensive compared to other hotels in the area.

A 10 minute walk from Cornavin Station and a 10 minute walk to Lake Geneva. The beds are comfy and clean. I expected a smaller room as what I read from various reviews but it wasn't the case. The room has enough space to store the luggage and convenient space to roam around. There is a free wi-fi and there is a bar and coffee shop on the ground floor.

They offer a free transport card as well. They arrange a taxi for us in the morning and was on time! A good choice for us given the hotels around charged twice as much.

We are two couples travelling Europe, and stayed at the Ibis Geneve Centre Nations for three nights. Rooms are clean, beds are good, but no coffee making available in the rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful, close to station and city centre and travel card is a bonus. Rooms are a bit tiny. Bar service is a bit slow due to staff checking in other travellers, but good comfortable rooms and very quiet.
