A conveniently located, easy to use hotel supplying good, clean, basic accommodation close to both the airport and the offices I was visiting. No frills, but they were not needed for a short business visit. WiFi was welcome and easy to use. Breakfast in "bistro" was fine. The only quibble was the price, which seemed high to me for a small room, but that may be what the market has set in Switzerland.

Had a great stay. Especially for Geneva this place is real value for your money. Transport to cornavin station is easy to get just across the road from the hotel. Shopping mall across the road also makes life easy. I will definitely stay here again should I find myself back in Geneva

I needed a hotel near the airport but also near to client's offices at Blandonnet, I was also looking for good links into the city. This hotel fits that bill just right! it's right across the road from a large shopping centre and right next main roads and bus route into the city.
The hotel was clean, functional and the breakfast was fine - usual cereals, bread, cheese & jams etc.(11CHF). The room I was in had a double bed and bunk bed overhead so would easily sleep 3, it was clean and quiet and fine for a 1 or 2 night stay however there wasn't any coffee or tea making facility in the rooms so it was 2CHF in the vending machine in the lobby. It did however provide free WIFI which was a real bonus, especially as some other hotels charge riduculous fees for this.

Good reasonably priced (at least by Geneva standards!) hotel within walking distance of the airport). Excellent for short stay. Facilities basic but consistently reliable and good. Best to ask for room on Jura side of the hotel if you want to be able to open a window.

Rooms are spartan and small, but acceptable by all means.
Close to the airport, 10 minute walk, but you can take the bus if you don't feel like walking. Down town is one trolley bus away. Hotel is next to Balexert shopping centre, where you can grab a quick bite. ...

Excellent hotel. Overall very good experience. Rooms are clean and very well kept. Staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast is nice. View from rooms Location is convinient and well connected by bus service although not the most optimal location for some. (Something nearer to the railway station may be more convenient for some people). Internet is free which is great.

Somethings could be improved even if it is a budget hotel. (1) Will be good to have a water heater in the room to prepare tea/coffee. (2) It will be good to specify the amenities present/absent in the room and at the hotel on the website so that the travellers can come prepared. e.g. no hair drier, no electric cooker/grill, no mini fridge etc. (3) Did not find information about connectivity to the hotel from airport/railway station. Will be useful to add that. e.g. bus #10 to rive from airport and bus #10 to airport from railway station, stop pally (Balexert). This will be extremely useful to travellers.

Found the room little too cold on first night -- maybe because I am not used to extreme cold. The blankets are good -- but I forgot to cover my head with woolens and got a headache. From 2nd day I took care to cover my head and didnt face any problem after that.
