We've been staying at this hotel during on of the Geneva exhibitions, as all other hotels were already booked or far above any reasonable price. Staff is friendly - but that's about it. We booked 4 rooms - 2 of them smelled of cigarettes, mine was not even cleaned - luckily the receptionist found an alternative room for me - this one smelled of stale food and some cleaning agent...I had to have the windows open all night. My colleague's rooms were in the hallway leading to the garbage room - not pleasant and noisy. Breakfast was OK, bit pricey but good. Wi-fi - slow or signal is so bad you can't even connect. So really not worth it..

The staff (at the reception) was pleasant and friendly. Hotel has a free large parking space. The kitchen is well equipped with plates, tea-cups, electric kettle, electric cooker, electric oven, etc.. Wi-Fi was free but its so slow (good signal strength but slow transfer rate).

The cleanliness of lavatory/ bathroom, bed sheets/covers are average (saying that they are not that much clean), Images of rooms published on the internet is bit different than the real. No double beds available, two single beds even for a couple.

Hotel is located off-city 30 minutes drive from Geneva and in a residential area. At night it is quiet so the sleep quality was good. After all good value for money.

Room Tip: If you prefer to park your car just in-front of you room, you should come early. In case you return...

I've just made a trip to France, along with some friends, in which we add the chance to visit switzerland...

Well, my weekend was awsome, the hotel was nice...

Perfect location to the one's who seek for visit switzerland, in fact, it's just crossing the border which is just a mile away,

Room was cleaned, however, the employees made the clean each two days..

Each customer must drop their own garbage.

The breakfast is just too expensive, so... we choose another way.

The hotel is just too lousy at night..

There are no beds for couples.. only single ones.

Employees are very nice and always present.

Afterall, there was a pleaseant stay.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms do NOT match the description or the pictures on the internet. Here are the good things about this hotel: free parking, free wifi (albeit slow), and reasonably friendly staff. Every other aspect of this hotel is miserable. We had two rooms and both were in disrepair with peeling paint and mold. Both rooms had an unpleasant odor… one smelled of the neighbors’ cooking, and the other of cat urine. One room had a large yellow stain on the pullout bed under the sofa. In general, the rooms did not feel clean at all. There does not appear to be much insulation in the walls because we could hear the upstairs neighbors all night long. Overall, this hotel is not worth staying at.

Well for really cheap prices, you can get a room with 4star quality.
10 minutes walking distance to but station and half hour total distance to Geneva's city center, this hotel made our visit to Geneva unbelievably low cost. The rooms were excellent with optional room service and a complete set of kitchen requirements. We had our breakfast and dinner at the lovely balcony.
But remember that you have to walk a long way to station if you don't have (or rented) a car. So, the smart choice is to rent a car, have this place, be happy with your wallet and enjoy the peace & quite place, the clean and bright rooms with lovely & helping personnel.

Room Tip: There is very little difference in price for smaller rooms vs. larger ones. so enjoy the bigger room...

- High speed internet is actually around 5 - 15 kpbs. very very slow!
- There are NO digital channels, they all gave " no signal"
- Breakfast is certainly not worth 8 euros. Better eat in your room
- Very loud environment, also very loud hotel visitors.
- Building is a bit strange, feels like some sort of asylum center.
