“A great budget hotel, very basic but a great place to use as a base.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

I stayed at the Ibis Geneve Centre Nations during a recent trip to Geneva, it is well situated in the city and a great base from which to explore.

I had never stayed at an Ibis hotel before, and I was pleasantly surprised. The modern, airy and clean lobby had the the feel of a boutique hotel- not a budget chain.

The food was basic, very very basic (barely a wardrobe) but it was clean and inexpensive... which is hard to come by in Geneva.

The service throughout our stay was fine, nothing more, but the staff were pleasant and effective in doing their job.

I visited during June, and so it was pretty hot, there is a large terrace at the back of the hotel which is a great spot of enjoy some drinks or food from the hotel bar.

I would give the breakfast a miss, one morning we paid to have breakfast but then opted for a refund as the selection and quality was so poor- go to a local cafe instead !

This is not a hotel for special occasion, but a great base for a city break or a business trip on the cheap.

I would stay at the Ibis Nations again, if the price was right.

For what we paid in Geneva, we were blown away by the quality of this hotel. The room was immaculate and very functional and the hotel is in great shape. One star off for a poor experience at checkout--they tried to charge us a second time for a room tax we paid on check-in.

Was a decent experience at the hotel, especially at the price we got the room for.. geneva can be very expensive and we chose this one for it's price, the ibis badge and its location...the staff was excellent and courteous and we were given a free welcome drink on arrival, we chose swiss wine which was quite good...the wifi is free and bus station is right next to the hotel... the main train station is 2 stops away and if you're in a hotel in geneva you get free access to all public transport...the supermarket in front of the hotel is pretty cheap and we actually ended up buying a lot of chocolates back home from this supermarket...
the rooms were well maintained although quite small...but for the price, it was a pretty good stay and the courteous staff further enhanced our experience...if i had the same budget, i wud go to this hotel again...

Room Tip: take a higher floor if possible

This hotel is ok if you just want to have a place to sleep in Geneva and you are on tight budget. If you want to have a unforgettable, relaxing holiday I'd choose another hotel.
Rooms are modern but very basic, no carpet on the floor (not mopped for a while because there was dust and hair everywhere) and wardrobe without doors. The bathroom is ok with spacious shower. Only one socket in the room which is a bit of pain when you want to charge few devices in the same time. However for the price it could be worst.
Location was an issue for me. It's a long walk to city centre. When you sightseeing It is nice to be able to come back to your hotel and rest when you feel tired but this hotel is a bit too far out. Also we were stopped twice by druggies on our way back to hotel and asked for change so neighbourhood is not so great. I would not feel comfortable to walk there late in the night.

I stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Geneva on business - the hotel is in a great location from the train station, within walking distance to the city center and very close the the CICG conference center. The hotel offers a comfortable stay, very helpful and friendly staff and the hotel in general has a very clean and professional feel. Great value for money for the area and a pleasant atmosphere in the bar/restaurant area making it easy to get on with some work or enjoy a light snack/drink on an evening. I would recommend adding the breakfast option to your booking - a great selection of continental style options to get your day started.

Standard Ibis hotel in Geneva. Small rooms, small bathrooms but good breakfast and good location and all for a decent price. We had a room that was close to the elevator but it was still pretty quiet. It was a nice walking distance to the main city and the water.
