My wife and I (senior citizens), my son and 9-year-old grandson have just spent four days in this aparthotel while on our first visit to family in Geneva. We would have no hesitation in returning, and will when the occasion arises. For a short stay visit, it is well located, steps from the Old Town, the rooms we had were adequate to our needs and acceptable, the lady on duty on the reception could not have been friendlier or more helpful, it is close to shopping, and minutes from bus routes, including to the airport. Street noise seemed to end by midnight, but street cleaning was sometimes intrusive at about 7.a.m - minimised by wooden shutters for light sleepers. This is not a full service hotel, so be aware. There is no full time concierge service, no bar, no restaurant - these were just steps away - but rooms were tended every second day, not that we required must attention. There is limited English-language TV which might be a downer for some long-stay guests who prefer their entertainment 'canned'. The weather was very hot during part of our stay, but what the hell, we didn't expect air condition and an open window is always available. Some of the denigrators in previous reviews appear to be business people, paid for by their companies and, consequently, inherently spoiled. There is no way this place qualifies for a 'terrible' rating. For anyone going on a short stay to this lovely city, who is flexible and who wants a convenient location, modest but reasonable accommodation and to be able to make breakfast or a cup of tea or a snack in their room between sightseeing, this ticks a lot of boxes. If you are picky,cantankerous, hard to please or used to corporate cosseting, and can afford it, try somewhere like the nearby Four Seasons.
