The great thing about this Ibis is that it a quick walking distance from the Central train station, which is only one stop from the airport.
The interesting fact about the location is that it is right beside a Salvation Army Center and Waifs and Strays Hostel.
The great thing about this Ibis is that it is a reasonably priced hotel in expensive Geneva.
The interesting fact is...well, there isn't really one. It is a reasonably priced Ibis in an expensive city. You can't except too much from the Ibis, but it was clean and comfortable. Actually, the first room we were given Wasn't clean, but we asked to be changed and were relocated without question.
No kettle/jug in the room, and no fridge. No fancy shampoos and no fluffy bathrobes. But then again, it is an Ibis so you can't expect those things.
The breakfast isn't anything to rave about, and possibly a little on the expensive side for the selection, but it was convenient.
They only real thing is that when we checked in to our two rooms, they gave one of us the smallest room on the floor, and the other the largest. I thought this was pretty strange, as it does breed a little bit of room envy when one has a bath and the other has only a shower, when one has room to move and the other can't get their suitcases past the bed. The room we moved to was a little bit bigger. I have posted a photo of the floorplan so if you are booking here you can try and request one of the larger rooms.
And at the end of the day, if you are only staying a few nights and need to be somewhere close to the city, then there isn't really a reason Not to stay here. Just remember to 'steal' some tea bags or hot chocolate from breakfast and ask for a free cup of hot water if you like an evening cuppa, anything more will cost you extra.
