“Swiss precision?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2011

We stayed 3 nights at Tor Hotel in Geneva. The hotel is between the railway station and the lake, but only few floors in a house. The family room was very small, uncomfortable, disrepair. The breakfast was a poor, and served in the room. The room was noisy, because we heard the chimney hood of the neighbor house all night. The bathroom small, and moldy.

We arrived into Geneva airport, took the train to Cointrin station and easily walked with our luggage to Torhotel. It is a very small hotel with reception on the third floor. We were travelling with three teenagers and needed two rooms. While the room with three beds was a good size with its own (rather tired) bathroom, the double room we had next door was small with a sink and shower right in the room and no toilet. There was a common WC down the hall. I always request extra blankets for sleeping and was surprised that none were available because the hotel was fully booked. The beds were comfortable, although we weren't used to duvets without sheets. Breakfast was served on time in our room. Five of us ate in the larger room with plates on our laps. Not ideal, but great to have everyone fed something. Everything in Geneva is VERY expensive! The free transportation cards provided to all hotel guests were great. You will be happy to have them if you plan to visit the UN or Red Cross Miuseum.

Superb location between the railway station and the lake. Rooms at the front overlook the English church and the bus terminal. Small but adequate continental breakfast served in the room at the scheduled time. A great place to stay if you're touring, especially if you're paying your own way!

We stayed 2 nights at Torhotel and were very happy with everything. Our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable, and the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good but fairly basic, and was served in our room. We were given a free public transport card to use during our stay too, which was very handy.
A lot of hotels in Geneva seem to be expensive, but this hotel is really reasonably priced and is less than 10 minutes walk from the railway station. We'd definitely recommend it.

The hotel room was pretty comfortable for 3 people and a lot of fun to stay in. The beds were fairly comfortable, but there weren't any sheets and the comforter on the king size bed was shorter, leading to a tug of war match in the middle of the night. The people were friendly, though they did not speak anything other than French, and the room was decorated very well. It was also nice to have breakfast served in our room every day even though it was the same breakfast every day. The hotel was super cute and a good value. It was just a little rough because it didn't have air conditioning, forcing us to open the windows, letting all of the street noise in, but other than that it was a nice place to stay for a week.

We booked into here for one night only but went in search of another hotel at 9pm as it was truly intolerable due to the heat! However, it would still be be disappointing at an acceptable temperature.
The double room (number 7) was pretty cramped; it reminded me more of student accommodation rather than a 3* hotel. There is no air conditioning and the window opens onto a central yard where apartments below vent their air-con, so if anything it is hotter with the window open.
Perhaps other rooms are better, but we also looked at a twin which was equally poky and faced onto a very noisy street.
