I got so used to Ibis chain delivering decent experience for budget price that this is what I now expect when I book. I wasn't disappointed this time either. The room was rather bigger than the usual Ibis room, which may have been so because it was on the building corner at the end of the corridor. The bed was comfortable, the TV had a good selection of channels, the Internet was fast & free and the breakfast was decent though with limited selection. Overall, a very good stay.

At check-in I even did get a card for free unlimited rides on public transport in Geneva - courtesy of the local city council. A great idea especially for tourists that other cities should consider.

Tip: this hotel is easily reachable on foot from the railway station. Don't even bother with a taxi unless you have lots of luggage.

Nothing special from typical ibis one. It is bit more costly , may be because you are in Switzerland! The breakfast was basic one and room service costly ! It is close to bus stop and because all Geneva hotels provide free transport card for your stay, it makes a good choice.

I you are looking for a new /renovated affordable simple hotel for a city visit in Geneva, this one might suit your needs. Location is good, there is bus stop close by, and it's just a few stops to the centre. Rooms are basic, ibis style. Breakfast was good. Parking as well.

I am a fan of the Ibis chain. You know what you are getting, everything works and usually, it is excellent value for money. Not in Geneva, I'm afraid. That said, a good value hotel room in Geneva probably involves finding a similar city and changing its name to Geneva.

That aside, I'd recommend it. The location is good, if you are in town for the conference centre/international agencies. Walking distance from the station and then on to the convention areas.

Price gripes aside, I like it.

Room Tip: No particular tips, other than I always make sure I ask that my room is well away from the elevator...

Ibis hotels are budget hotels, which in the Geneva case means that you still have to shell out an amount that would entitle you to a decent five-star hotel with all frills and amenities in most other world regions. The place costs around 200 dollars for any weekday night. In Geneva they call this cheap. Put in this context, it offers value for money. Recently built, it sports a modern and stylish lobby area. The rooms are small but have everything you need (very comfortable bed, desk, small bench, tv, wifi). The bathroom is small and functional but has a roomy shower cabin with well pressured water. The hotel is rather well located, half way between the centre of town and the UN. You can easily walk to both. There is good and easy access to trams and buses too.

This Ibis is nicer than average, with generously proportioned rooms (for a European city centre, that is), the bathroom and especially the shower particularly spatious - the latter being even more rare. The room was in immaculate and modern condition - and typically for Ibises furnished in an "Ikea" style. Room was quiet and the TV was large and had a few English channels (not always to be counted on in Geneva!).

Breakfast was good, but does cost CHF 15.00 extra. Note that many hotels in this area of Geneva at the same price range are offering breakfast included in room price. Room was about CHF 170 for a mid-week stay - no hotels in Geneva can be described as inexpensive.

Negative points - no kettle or coffee maker in room. Location is a compromise - 10-15 minutes walking or a short bus ride to central station / Paquis and also to UN. If you don't have a bag with you and it is not raining this is ok for a walk.

Normally for the same money we would choose to stay in Paquis where there are more restaurants, station is closer and breakfast is included; but if you choose this Ibis your stay will be comfortable.
