This is a very good hotel, close to all international organizations in Geneva. Extremely clean, Renovated, very good customer service, good value for money, 10m from the bus stop . I would rank this hotel as 4 stars and not less. would recommend it for people visiting Geneva.

Ibis Geneve Centre nations is situated in the region 'Nations'. There are quite a lot bus connections to different parts of Geneva. With the free transport tickets that you receive from the hotel, transport isn't a problem during your stay.

The hotel rooms itself are decent and they have everything you expect in an Ibis hotel.
Room temperature is perfectly adjustable to your wishes. Also a large shower.

Excellent hotel!

Travel tip:
The bus stop next to the hotel (50 meter) will bring you to the Mont Salève cable car, which is very recommended! (bus stop: Veyrier - Douane)

Two night business stay. Good points: 1) Clean 2) Room size equal to or probably larger than other IBIS hotels that I have stayed in especially the bathroom. There is good space both in the shower area and the toilet seat area. In some other IBIS hotels, the space is so cramped that you can barely move in the bathroom 3) Choice of tea and coffee in breakfast was good 4) Centrally located in heart of Geneva very close to the Geneva main train station 5) Wifi (Premium connection) was good
Drawbacks: 1) No tea-coffee maker in room (inherent drawback of all IBIS hotels) 2) No soap bar - liquid soap both in the shower area and the handwash/sink area - that is OK as long as there is enough in the liquid soap container. In my case, the one near the sink area had very little soap inside - so you had to really squeeze the container hard for soap to come out 3) No fitness area

Room Tip: I got a room facing the main street which was great

It is not easy to find a decently priced and clean hotel option in Geneva. This Ibis hotel is a good choice for those who need to stay between the airport and the train station.

The location is ok but if you arrive by train you should be ready to walk 10 minutes uphill from the station. If you have a lot of luggage, it is better to take bus 8 to OMS and get off at Canonnière.

I arrived around 7pm on a weekday, there was only one person at the reception so the check-in was very slow. He finally had to get some help to serve all the people waiting.

Overall this is a pleasant hotel, with several good points:
- Renovated room, functional, clean, quiet
- Free transport card
- Free internet
- Nice TV channel selection

There are a few things I did not like:
- Bathroom : no tissues (typical in most Ibis hotels), no shelf to put toilet case
- Breakfast : canned fruit salad (maybe it is not always like this)
- Not many eating options around the hotel, you have to go near the train station

I stayed four nights while in business at a UN agency. The hotel is super clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. I thought the breakfast was much better than most other places I have stayed, typical Swiss fare but very good quality and plenty available. Great location right on the #8 bus line and 10 minute walk to the train station. To be sure, it is not the lap of luxury - maybe if Ikea ran a hotel this is what it would look like. But I was very pleased to get this much for the price I paid, and I will stay there again on my next trip.

It was very easy to book the hotel via booking .com with having to pay upfront. The check was smart and seamless. The hotel was simple and clean. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is good with easy access to the city centre and the United Nations at Geneva. I recommend the hotel.

This was our first vacation trip to Geneva and the hotel was surprisingly easy to find though walking uphill from the train station I was glad I only had one piece of luggage. We ended up taking the bus most of the rest of the stay as the stops were so convenient and the rides were free. The hotel amenities are basic but everything was very comfortable and spotless. Service was efficient. We had one breakfast there which was nothing special but quite adequate, and one dinner consisting mostly of food from a microwaved carton but tasted fine. There is a grocery store across the street by the bus stop and a Lebanese restaurant/pastry/pizza restaurant next door. Wifi was good. I would have liked the room cooler at night and was unable to turn it down any further but this was minor. Would definitely recommend.
