Hi from Hotel Central, please make your way to our hotel when you arrive. We will do our best to have your room ready.. as check out is at 11am, we cannot guarantee it will be ready. You can always leave your luggage at the reception while you wander around geneva. Your room should be in the 6th floor. Best regards and see you soon Christine Gangsted Hotel Central
