“Very good airport hotel”
Reviewed December 8, 2008

OK, the location isn't brilliant if you want to be near the centre of Geneva but there is a bus stop directly outside the hotel and the reception will give you a special travel card which lets you use unlimited public transport for free during your stay. It takes about 15-20 minutes by bus into the centre of Geneva.

My room was medium-sized but very pleasantly furnished with a nice modern bathroom - it was all spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Breakfast was excellent, and there is a charming lobby bar which serves good (if overpriced) food

Perfect if you need a hotel near the airport - you can get there by bus in 5 minutes and I'd much rather stay here then some small poky hotel in the centre.

I stayed her for 2 nights in November 2008. The Ramada Park Hotel is conveniently located about 500 meters from the airport. A hotel bus service runs every 20 minutes but you could also walk it. In front of the hotel bus 10 stops which goes to the city center (takes about 20 minutes). Into the other direction this bus goes to the airport. The hotel provides a free transportation ticket, which is valid for the days of your stay for all public transportation in Geneva.

The rooms are small, but comfortable. I had a door between my room and the adjacent room which was not really sound proof. I could hear the snoring and coughing of my neighbor. Wireless internet is expensive (Cfr 32,00) every 24 hours, which is really overpriced nowadays.

I had a nice lunch salad in the bar and dinner was OK, although not very exciting.

Ramada Park is a very convenient place to have an international meeting and it is cheaper than other A-locations.

Stayed here as part of a conference booking recently. The rooms were quite dated - I was in a twin room and the bed felt really old and used. It was a little torn on the side and the quilt was dusty. It feels a little like a retro hotel built in the '80s. There's really funky 1950's style door numbers on each of the rooms but it just feels a little dated and not fresh. The windows had broken latches so it was a challenge to open them. Mine looked out on runway of the airport which was a bit of a pain when flights started taking off in the morning. Had to have the window open as it just felt clammy - the air con didn't work.

The water in the shower went hot and cold and the actual shower head was at the side rather than above so spraying at you rather than on you. I'm not sure if this was the case in all rooms.

The hotel is very convenient for the airport and the shuttle bus takes about 5 minutes from the airport. It's convenient for the city too as the bus (no 10) stops right outside the hotel and this goes into the city which takes about 10 / 15 minutes.

Downstairs in the hotel is fine - breakfast was good and it feels a little more modern. The conference room on -2 was very warm and had no fresh air. It was quite hard to be in it for two days with no natural light or air.

A very good and comfortable business hotel. The great things about this hotel.

1. The staff are very very helpful
2. On arrival you are issued a free pass for all public transport for the duration of your stay (bus, tram and boat). There are plenty of buses, the route maps are easy to understand and it is a very easy way to get around the city. The free pass is a simple but inspired idea.
3. They have complimentary bicycles available, free for the first two hours.
4. The room/bathroom were super clean.
5. They have free wifi internet in the lobby
6. Breakfast buffet is great (but a bit expensive)

The hotel is situated conveniently close to the airport (5 min), in a fairly nondescript neighborhood. The old town is a bus ride away, but there is a stop right outside the hotel.

There is a fantastic Persian restaurant just over the road. Restaurant Khayyâm, Avenue Louis-Casaï 60.

Ok .. Ramada Park Hotel

when we arrived I was shocked.. the room was too small but then I heard that most hotels in Europe are not that fancy and the rooms are small anyway :-)

at the reception they were very cooperative and kind although the phone in the room doesn't work so well .. so in order to call

the hair dresser dial 3047
room service 3062
front desk 3040

there is a tiny cold store in front of the hotel petrol station you can get mineral water and stuff its cheaper than the hotel of course and you can take the shuttle to the airport every 20 minutes to get magazines and stuff .. if you are not from Europe get an adapter cause you wont be able to charge your mobile otherwise have a pleasant stay ...

Insane prices $375 per night for a Ramada. Internet is very difficult and expensive $32/day and you can only get the access number by walking down to the front desk. Really bad customer service. I was jet-lagged and didn't want to worry about meeting the laundry 830am deadline. So, the night before, I called the front desk and asked to have my laundry picked up. He said it wasn't possible. I had to call back in the morning! Ridiculous! I had a cockroach crawling across my carpet near the bed - not fun. The gym equipment is old and needs repair/updating. The maid would just rinse the glasses you used, and put them back instead of replacing them with sanitized/washed glasses. Wow - Ramada corporate offices needs to check this hotel out.

Normally I wouldn't stay in a hotel like a Ramada, but since I was in Geneva for the Euro Cup, I had to take what I could find. It is a hotel catered towards business travelers.

The hotel is very close to the airport (about 3 minutes by their free shuttle, which runs every 20 minutes between about 6 am - 10 pm), but not close to anything else. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel, and the #10 bus come about every 10 minutes and takes you right downtown. One nice thing was that we each got a free bus pass upon arrival that was valid only for the days we were in Geneva. We saved quite a bit of money of transportation that way.

The room decor is outdated and the bed was two very hard mattresses pushed together, which created a very awkward dip in the middle.

Breakfast was not included, and the price was outrageous at 35 Euros per person!

Some of the members of the concierge were helpful, and others were not so much. Near the elevator, there was a sign advertising that there was a pool 100m from the hotel. When we inquired about it, the two ladies working blankly stared at each other, spoke a bit in French (even though they did speak English as well), and then sort of pointed nowhere and told us they didn't really know what we were talking about. We walked around trying to find it and couldn't. My point is, if a hotel is going to advertise something, I think the staff should be informed and be able to tell the guests about it. There was one young man, Daniel, who was always helpful and friendly, but most of the other ones were not.

Wireless internet was free, but it was only available in the lobby area.

There are a couple of overpriced restaurants in the hotel, which we did make use of a couple of times, only due to the fact that there were really no other restaurants in the area (except for an extremely expensive Italian restaurant across the street).

We paid 200 CHF for one night and 350 CHF for the other 3 nights.

I would not stay here again unless it was the only place available.
