This hotel was very nice and accommodating and included breakfast which was great. Unfortunately it was pretty far away from the city center (it took us a tram and a bus to get there from the main train station) but for the price it was a good value. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you're not afraid of... More

We visited on a hot night and had to leave the windows closed. Sleeping with them open onto a busy road was impossible. The ventilator labelled "Air Conditioner" is definitely not an air conditioner. It just moves the hot air around and is quite noisy. Our recommendation: make sure to book rooms to the back or avoid staying during summer.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With 32 rooms and junior suites, the Hotel des Horlogers was entirely renovated in 2008 to resemble a small museum reflecting the long history of watch-making in Switzerland. The interior design plays on the theme of watch-making, allowing you to discover and admire a collection of over 250 tools dating back to the 18th and 19th century. All the rooms benefit from quality bedding, a minibar, complimentary tea and a coffee, free Wi-Fi and an LCD television set with a wide selection of international channels. Breakfast is served in the form of a cold buffet, and the hotel has a garden graced by a beautiful weeping willow. Located in the centre of Plan-les-Ouates, the building is less than 3 minutes away from the main Swiss watch-making district and the Geneva stadium. The Geneva International Airport and Geneva Palexpo are a 10-minute car ride away; the city centre and lake are 15 minutes away and accessible by public transportation (bus and tram). A large public park and numerous shops surround the hotel, and a variety of restaurants can be found nearby.  Parking is available on “route des Chevaliers de Malte”, and a complimentary public transportation card will be given to you upon arrival. ... more   less
