“Good value for the money in a central location. Nothing fancy.”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

This hotel was a good value for the money as Europe is not cheap in August. It's quite near the central train station which means you can catch a bus or tram anywhere in Geneva just by stepping out the front door. Views are not great but the lake is only about a 10 minute walk. Rooms are basic but clean. You get free wifi, breakfast and transportation passes with the room. It's a little bit noisy but not bad. I would stay again if I were on a budget and just passing though,

I've stayed here in 2010 and was happy to stay again recently. Although the hotel seems to be on the old side, it is well maintained and doesn't feel it. I stayed in single rooms both times and both were very comfortable - on the most recent trip the room actually had a little balcony overlooking the Rue du Mont-Blanc with a small table and chair. The day I was there it was over 30°C but the air conditioning had no problem cooling the room down and the free WiFi also works well. The breakfast is continental style and decent.

The location opposite the railway station is very convenient for onward connections - if you arrive by plane don't forget to grab a free transport ticket from the machine near baggage claim (just BEFORE you walk through the red/green channels) then hop on the first train. When you get to the hotel they'll give you a transport card valid for the remainder of your stay, though most things are an easy walk.

This hotel is right opposite the main Geneva station. We got a good deal & it was well worth it. Even though it was an old hotel it was very clean & it looked like it had been refurbished. Breakfast was fine no eggs, bacon etc, but plenty of cereal, toast etc quite adequate. I was a bit concerned about the location but there didnit seem to be any problems.

Room Tip: Opposite Geneva rail station

Geneva has become perhaps one of the really expensive cities.......So if you have to be in Geneva having the choice of a nice, air conditioned hotel at a fair price is good.

Geneva is a lovely City, and easy to walk around. If one is careful on Restaurant Choices, one's budget might stand the visit.

The proximity of the Hotel to the Train Station with the free train to and from the airport is a plus as is the transportation pass for Geneva supplied by the Hotel for the time of one's visit.
As mentioned in other reviews, some of the rooms are rather small but well designed, and the Bathroom is efficient.

The Breakfast is provided and is adequate.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from the Station.

Nice and clean rooms, even with an A/C that was able to cope with an outside temp around 30 C/85 F. Looks like the hotel has been through a refurbishment lately. The bedroom size was not impressive, but okay, a large bathroom, modern and clean too. In total the room was nice and comfortable. Breakfast was just like any other average continental breakfast. The area is quite busy, but modern isolated windows and shutters keep the noise outside. Even better if you ask for a room that faces the backside of the building. The backside area is a small public parking area. The parking is free during nights (from 19:00 to 08:00 and from 19:00 on Saturday until 08:00 Monday morning). The location is very central with perfect access to public transportation (bus, train, tram and taxi).

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the backside of the building - they are really quite.

Booked a standard double (single use) room on the 5th floor. Contemporary room decor and well-utilized space, however the bathroom reminds me of the 1970's with excruciatingly gaudy yellow floral tiling. There's a mini-bar as well as in-room safe and coffee/tea in the closet.

The hotel is located across Gare Cornavin, Geneva's main train station. Guests get a transport card which allows them complimentary access to public transit within Geneva during their stay. If you need to get to the airport, just cross the street and take Bus #5 - Aeroport, or go inside the station and grab a train.

You're as central as you can get to transit, taxis, banking, shopping and restaurants. If you're suffering separation anxiety from Western sustenance, there's a Starbucks and McDonald's across the side of the hotel.

The restaurant is breakfast-only, complimentary and includes a basic European assortment of breads, deli meats, cereal, dairy, juices and fresh fruit. There's a do-it-yourself Nespresso machine for coffee, ample seating and a small patio for smokers or whoever. For a little over 7CHF you can get breakfast delivered to your room, otherwise there is no room service.

Cons with the hotel include a rather slow and small elevator (there are two but one was under maintenance during my stay), no iron in the room, and low water pressure for the toilet - it was very annoying to hear the tank fill for a minute after flushing.

Things the hotel has no control over but you should be aware of is city noise (awful street music and construction noise in the morning and the occasional drunk person screaming "Woo" at night). It's not very loud though and if you're a city person, it won't really bother you.

I'd recommend this hotel for business travelers and people who will rely a lot on transit during their stay in Geneva.
