“Don't move the soap dish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is the kind of hotel where there is a paper strip across the plasticky toilet to indicate it is sanitized; where the Evian bottle in the minibar has already been opened and refilled with tap water; and the neighborhood is Geneva's red light district. Turn right out of the hotel and there are drugs and prostitutes along with their customers, pretty much 24/7.

Turn left, and it is close to the lake and the train station.

I paid 249CHF, which seems pricey for the tired furnishings and so-so neighborhood but it is Geneva. Breakfast is good.

Dead flies under the soap dish.

Convenient located hotel between train station & beautiful lake shore. Hotel room clean. Good breakfast on offer. Next to sex shop & prostitutes but this wasn't threatening just a bit disconcerting. Bar opposite did not cause too much noise. Feels expensive compared to what we paid in Brig & Lugano but compared to other hotels in Geneva it was reasonable.

I stayed in the hotel during the conference season - it was good value considering the time of the year. The highlight was the kindness and courtesy of the staff particularly Sofia & the ManagerM. Berjavi. They were always ready to provide assistance and advice and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. That added to great breakfasts made this a memorable stay.

Amazing hotel in the city center of Geneva.
I was here for 1 night. It's very easy to find this hotel if you start the journey from the airport using the train. It's near to the Railway Station, 1 bus stop on the routes 25 or 1, or you can walk about 5 minutes (the 4th street from the station).
In the hotel I found pleasant staff. Everything was clean, The room was warm &comfortable.
In the morning I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast.
Thank for all management (esp. for receptionists Inna and Sara - they gave me a good advice about city and directiones to look).

Room Tip: Just ask for receptionist

I was in Geneva on business trip and this was the perfect hotel for my purposes. This was a great hotel with a warm family feel. I was ambivalent as a woman on my own about its location in the 'red light' area but I always felt safe as it is quite a regulated area. It is such a central location, near to the beautiful lake where you can go for an early morning jog or walk. It was also near the station and serviced by buses or trams anywhere. Good resturants and shopping on the doorstep. The receptionist was more helpful and knowledgable than the tourist information - and offered advice on how to get around and made sure she gave me the free travel pass to get around and back to the airport. The hotel was very clean and comfortable with excellent breakfast. The staff were very attentive and efficient. I was very impressed with their committment to their jobs ( esp the breakfast lady). I asked for a warm quiet room in the back and they gave me just that. It was private and very clean - better than photos on the web! The manager Jamal was on site to make sure all was running smoothly as was the owner who was lending a hand by sweeping the entrance! A sign of good management! I will go again and take my partner for a wonderful weekend in a beautiful romantic city. Geneva is an expensive city - and this 3 star was as good as it gets for this category, price and location. I recommend it highly.
