“What we needed”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

This is a cute place. The bed was small and truthfully, a little uncomfortable and we had a shared bathroom but it worked for what we needed. It is very close to the train station and a decent place to sleep at the end of a long day. If we had more time in Geneva I would find a nicer hotel to set up camp from but for 1 night it was fine.

With only one night in Geneva to break up the trip between France and Italy, we just wanted the most basic option and went with this hotel. And at around 120 euros for the night and a share bathroom, it was the cheapest we could find in this pricey town. We also wanted something close to the train station, and it is only an easy 5 minute walk.

The room itself was tiny. And the bed was hardly big enough for 2 people. The share bathroom was just across the hall and clean. So it did the job.

The big selling point of this hotel is the man down on the front desk. Upon arrival, he was welcoming, friendly and full of fantastic information. I feel he must enjoy his job and dealing with people, as it shows. It is the kind of service you would expect at a much higher class establishment.

For one night with the bare basics, go for it. But don't expect any more.

Stayed one night. was very easy to find and communication from reception was great as i was arriving after checkin. Would have been perfect if the noise from the garbage trucks, and the guests entering and leaving rooms was not so loud in the room. Didnt get much greatly needed sleep. Breakfast adequate. Would have liked some fresh fruit!

This hotel is very basic buit very central and cheap for Geneva. It is located by the main train station the lak and all the shops in Geneva . The staff where brillant it is welcomin of children although there isnt anything for children in the hotel except a television but as you dont spend too much time in the hotel i certainly wouldnt complain. Basic breakfast but fills and save you spending on food which is very expensive in Geneva. Overalll we enjoyed our stay and it was clean. Thankyou to the staff.

The hotel is well located, near the train station. It is reasonably priced (considering the average prices in Switzerland), clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived early and were really pleased that we could check-in straight away and go up to our room. The breakfast was nice and the hotel has a very familiar and cosy feel. The room was small but quiet. Free wifi a bonus. No problems at all and would reccommend!

Hotel St-Gervais provided a welcoming first night for our seven weeks in Europe. It was very conveniently located for our arrival by train, well serviced by public transport, close to what we consider to be the heart of the city, and relatively cheap (for Switzerland, that is). Staff were universally friendly and helpful. The lift was tiny - one person and suitcase was maximum capacity - and the room on the small side and very basic but nevertheless comfortable. There were I think seven floors with just three rooms on each floor to share the bathroom facilities. The buffet breakfast provided plenty of choice, and all food that we tried was tasty.

When we got such a good deal on a double room we didn't know what to expect... But this hotel was so close to the train station, the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, the room was spacious, comfortable with a couch and very clean, and the free breakfast was delicious! And tot it off the wi-fi is very fast and reliable. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!
