“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Ok, so this hotel is located in Geneva redlight destrict. This was a bit of an question mark to me as a solo female traveller. I still decided to book the hotel, encouraged by other reviews on Tripadvisor. So the fact is: if you turn to the left from the hotel door there is nothing but clean streets. If you turn to the right there are a lot of prostitutes day in, day out. But, as I took to the right, I found out that if seeing the prostitutes and the men shopping for it doesn't bother you too much, then there is nothing to fear. No one will bother you. And hotel is located really close to the lakeshore, only 5 min walk.

The hotel itself is old but clean and nice. The staff is extremly accomodating and friendly, so I felt totally welcome. Breakfast is a good selection of the normal hotel variety and was included in the price, which was also good compared to other Geneva hotels. There are few things to consider: the walls are paperthin so light sleepers should take earplugs or go elsewhere. Also, no airconditioning in the room, which made it a bit uncomftorable in the scorching July temperature. But should you be ok with all this, then I say, go for it. It is nice, friendly, well located and a good price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the backyad to avoid the street noices.

Dear Valued guest,

Thank you for having stayed with us and for having had the time to write your appreciated review,

All the Admiral Hotel rooms are equipped with an air condition and also with a ceiling fan, all what you had to do is asking our receptionist who would have helped you finding the A/C situated behind the curtains while its remote control in the drawer.

With regards to the red light district, it can be completely avoided by turning left

Thank you again and we are looking forward to welcoming you among us in a near future

Best regards

Chose this hotel for the location as it was near where many of our tours started from. Yes it is in the red light district but we walked the streets and never had an issue. The hotel was comfortable, the rooms where clean, the breakfast was very good and the staff where pleasant and helpful. Will stay there again if we go back to Geneva.

Hotel is located very close to Geneva main station and in a walking distance to Lake Leman and Mont Blanc bridge.
Room is small, but big enough for a couple. Breakfast is pretty good and staff is friendly. Only negative point is the bathroom, since the shower area is extremely small.

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.
