The hotel is a short walk from the train station and it's cheap to take a train from the airport straight to the main station. The receptionist wasn't overly friendly or helpful when we arrived and told us we just had to use the internet to find information on tours and trains etc I had previously emailed a few times asking for information and help with booking something but received no response to any of my emails.
The room was quite average although this was a cheaper hotel in Geneva so wasn't expecting amazing accommodation. The shower however was mouldy which was a bit off putting. The room was small but no smaller than the average small room in Europe.
There is no air conditioning in rooms so on a warm night is quite uncomfortable. You can sleep with the window open but this lets a bit of noise in. We found leaving the window open all day while we were out made it somewhat cooler but it was still very warm,
There is a large department store over the road which has a fabulous supermarket at the bottom which is great for picking up water, drinks or anything you need. 10 minute walk to the flower clock and 20 to the fountain so location was really good.
