I had to find a place in Geneva on the fly one night and ended up walking by Hotel des Alpes. It was extremely low priced at 150 Swiss francs. Nearby low budget hotels were going for 200 or so in comparison. (Yes, hotels in Geneva are ridiculously expensive by US standards!) I asked to see a room and the desk attendant was extremely nice about it. The rooms are modest but clean. The bathroom was dated but also clean and there was fast hot water, a full bath, hairdryer, etc. I slept quite comfortably and checked out the next day feeling well rested. This is obviously not a hotel you want to spend many days in but if you need a short resting stop or you are a 20 something budget traveler (I'm a 30 something business traveler), this hotel is great.
