Stayed there for 3 nights, very affordable hotel comparing to other hotels in Geneva center which are much more expensive. It's not the typical hotel - it's more an apartment then an hotel room, equipped with fully functional kitchen, desk and sofa. The furniture are a little bit old but the room is nice and clean. The channels selection on... More

The hotel is very accessible. Shops and bus stops are near. The lake is also just few metres away. The train station is probably a 10-minute walk to or from hotel. The front desk ladies are also very helpful and speaks English very well. We are located on the 3rd floor. The lift could only take 4 people at a... More

This hotel is placed in the center, easy to reach by car, motorbike or bike. It is a bit old-fashioned but OK. However, we were awaked at night by our neighbours talking with each other and using their mobile phones. There was a safe in the room, but it was closed so we could not use it because the manager...

Having stayed here for three nights every spring since 2009, we know and love this friendly, centrally located set of apartments. The (almost) lakeside location and proximity to all the sites and facilities - at a great price is draw......but oh dear ...is it time for some small renovation ? Curtains, cutlery and with a lick of paint - so... More

The residence is right in the city centre, minutes away from the lake shore. I had a large 2-room appartment on the last floor. Beds were comfortable and the place was quiet. Staff was friendly. Definitely a place where I would go back, with a very good value for what you pay for (in Geneva with similar rates you usually... More

This hotel is in a very good central location, about fifteen minute walk to the station and near plenty of trams and buses and the lake. Staying here made it easy to keep the cost of a stay in Geneva reasonable. Furnishings were old and a bit tatty, especially the kitchen, but it was good enough to have breakfast there... More
