We stayed here as a base for visiting Geneva and Montreux and various other locations in the area. It is very basic, with just a bed, a desk, a wardrobe and a pod bathroom with a shower in it. It is desperately in need of decorating, and although not filthy, it could do with new carpets. Breakfast is extra (we didn't have it but it looked nice in the breakfast room), and you don't get a hairdryer or tea/coffee making facilities. Reception is closed at night so there is no one to speak to if you need to. However, it does have a sister hotel which is literally round the corner and open all night. The smoke alarms are linked to the main fire alarm and someone was obviously smoking in a room because the fire alarm went off one night!
So why the very good rating? The staff were lovely. It took 5 minutes to check in. The room we had was at the back, upstairs, and was very quiet, despite right next to the landing strip of the airport. It was 5 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport, and the stops from and to are right outside the hotel. The towels and sheets were very clean, the water was hot and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. The maids came in and replaced everything and tidied up every day. It is in Ferney Voltaire, which is a lovely little town and the center is about a 10 minute walk away. Ferney has lovely bars and restaurants and a great market on Saturdays. The F bus goes straight to Geneva from outside the hotel and if you get the all day ticket, it cost 6.8 Euros (or 8 chf - remember, this hotel is in France so you need Euros and Swiss francs if you are popping over to Geneva and back a lot. ) It only takes about 10 minutes to get to Geneva as well. At weekends, the travel tickets are 2 for 1, and they all cover all buses, trams, trains and water taxis.
Its a great base for going out sightseeing every day, and there are three supermarkets (with VERY cheap, nice wine for sale!) within a 5-10 minute walk. If you want to sit in a hotel room all day, its not for you. If you use it as a base for a decent night's sleep and a hot shower in a friendly environment, its for you.
