“It does the job”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

When you arrive at the airport you can pick up a free travel pass valid for 90 mins, that will take you into the city.
We chose the bus option as the hotel was that side of the outskirts, around half an hour in rush hour, and it stopped outside which was a bonus.
Inside it resembled a posh Travelodge but the staff were very helpful, and our room was clean, the pod like bathroom was quite good really. The downside was no kettle or aircon, which would have made this stay a little easier.
You are provided with travel passes for the entire stay which was handy, with a tram stop literally a minutes walk along with the also frequent buses.
The surrounding area is a mixture of shops and places to eat, big supermarket good for cheap room nibbles.
The restaurant prices varied between not so cheap and 'You are Joking!' (25CF for a plain pizza)
Geneva is compact, the lake with the fountain an obvious attraction with the Bains de Paquis public baths on the lake our favourite place. 2CF to get in and you can spend all day swimming in the lake and sunbathing. The cafe served the best food we ate in Geneva and it was packed at lunchtimes with locals who obviously knew the score.
Overall a nice stay and the Ibis Petit Lancy was a good base, and located just outside the main body of Geneva.

Room Tip: Large supermarkets close by, if you want to save a bit of money.

The hotel is a bit far from the city centre but it is located basically in front of the bus stop, from where a tram will take you in town in about 15 minutes. The room was pretty clean, the staff extremely courteous, they have answered promptly to all our requests.
The breakfast is a bit expensive for the quality but on the whole we had an extremely nice weekend.
We will definetely come back

My wife and I spent 2 nights at this hotel at the end of May 2013. It was easily the most affordable hotel during that period around $160 USD, other hotels were around $500 USD per night. The hotel staff was friendly and check-in was easy. From Geneva airport take bus #23 to the Les Esserts station, you can pick up a free pass to ride public transit for 80 minutes before exiting baggage claim. Also, all Geneva hotels provide a free transit pass for the duration of your stay. The hotel across the street from tram line 14 into Geneva and two bus lines to Carouge (bus stop Tours de Carouge) a bohemian town near Geneva. Public transit runs regularly from Carouge to and from Geneva as well.

We had dinner at the hotel our first night, which was fine. There is a market, bakery/cafe (breakfast), and some restaurants nearby as alternatives. Otherwise, use your free transit pass to go to either Geneva or Carouge (15 minutes away). Wi-fi is free, at the front desk you pick up a slip of paper with your user ID and password, which is good for 24 hours. The hotel also provides walking maps, public transit maps and other pamphlets for tourists.

Geneva is not the most budget friendly city, so staying at this hotel helped. Lastly, this hotel is next door to the Ibis Budget Petit-Lancy (entrances are 5 feet apart). I don't know how much that costs, but you can check it out as well in case this hotel is not available.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a pleasant stay. The room was spacious and clean. Although our room faced the street, it was quiet so the isolation is perfect. The staff were really friendly and helpful. wi-fi worked perfectly. The only downside was the breakfast which was expensive. So I suggest not eating at the hotel and try having breakfast at the station where you can have a good breakfast for 9 frank instead of 15 frank.
Regarding the location, it's 20 minutes away from the center but it's easily reachable. You can take bus 24 from the airport directly to the hotel which takes around 30 minutes. Or try taking the train first to Geneva and then to the hotel which takes a bit longer than by bus.

Me and my husband visit this hotel in the end of December 2012. In the aiport Cointrin we use the bus and after 10 minuts were inside the hotel!Very fast! Service was very good, nice persons met us in Reception. The room was wonderful: very clean, comfortable bed, nice room service. In Geneve was very rainy but we have no umbrella, so they were very polite and gave it to us. The hotel is close to the center of the city-around 5 minutes by tram. All transport in Geneve are free. (In hotel they give us a free ticket).We liked this lovely hotel and Geneve!

The rooms are small but clean and no noise penetrates from outside. The bathroom is small and round giving a futuristic 'pod' feel which I rather liked.

No fridge or kettle provided, no conditioner either.

Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Also they give you a travelcard covering the days of your stay which is very useful.

A friend had the breakfast and wasn't all that impressed - but it wasn't included and it's easy to find somewhere else to eat.

Overall this is a fine place to stay.
