I have rated the hotel very good except one dissappointment. We wanted to leave our one suitecase for two nights while travelling to St Moritz. The hotel manager refused giving the reason that they can only keep a suitecase for few hours. Even after much request he could not help us. Since we were caming back to the same hotel, we realy were dissappointed. We had to carry a big suitecase to St Mortiz and suffered much when we changed trains.

Basic hotel, cheap by Geneva standards but clean. I booked online and that created less hustle when I arrived late in the night (late arrival be sure you will miss out on dinner). The rooms are quite basic, with a built in bathroom and toilet. That bit dint feel like a hotel at all. But good staff who speak some English thus communication is not a problem. One of the staff actually directed me to the street where my meeting was, as it was easier and faster to walk to it that hoping on the public transport. Breakfast is good but not a wide range of options on the buffet.

As it says on the tin, this hotel is basic - it has a bed, shower and bathroom and a small desk. There was not much space to hang clothes etc. They also do not have a kettle, which was a bit of a surprise. However, we were on a budget and Switzerland is very expensive!
Despite that, the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and our room was clean and was cleaned everyday. There was a good WiFi connection and over the road was a large shopping precinct. Location wise, it is near to the airport and not far from the city so it was easy to get to different places. I will add that the hotel gave us a transport card so we were able to take public transport free of charge and this was extremely helpful.
So although it was basic, the service was good and the room was clean.

I stopped at this hotel in February 2013 during a college trip to CERN.
The hotel is well located and everywhere was easy to get to from the hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. One thing I really didnt like was the shower/bathroom set up. The shower was not in a sepetate room, as in you had to get naked either in the shower (without the shower on) or in the room itself which is a problem if you are on a college trip and end up sharing a room with someone you barely know. It was just awkward.
The food on a morning was lovely, no problems there.
Recommened this place just be prepared for the odd shower set up. Aha.

You get what you expect from Ibis - clean, functional and comfortable with no frills. Good WiFi connection in room. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The only minor issue is that the attached restaurant is a bit limited and pricey, especially as there is not a huge amount of other choice in the immediate vicinity later in the evening. But overall, fine and this is now my hotel of choice in Geneva.

Very nice hotel for a very good price. Helpful service from the staff. free wifi internet worked perfectly well. Small room with very comfortable bed. The only thing i missed is the fresh air coming through the window, which was not allowed to be opened. Very convenient bus service close to the hotel that could get you anywhere in the city centre and beyond. Highly recommended for business and family travellers.
