Reviewed 17 April 2014

Arriving after a week in Chamonix, I was allowed to check in around 9am (as my departure was quite early the next day). I was just getting over a flu as I arrived and the front desk person was very observant and offered to make me tea while I was waiting for the room to ready. The room was small and simple, but fine, and ultimately a good value considering how expensive hotels in Geneva are! Location was very convenient for taking the tram and other public transportation, and the stay included a free transportation card, which was nice.

This hotel will not be everyone's cup of tea. The hotel has a high specification throughout but it feels like and office block converted into a hotel...?
The rooms felt shoehorned in, and had a showroom feel to them, everything is extremely high tech which is great but it doesn't improve the feel of the room. i.e. buzzing and annoying standby lights gleaming at night.

If the owners spent more on comfort measures i.e decent bed, decent bedroom doors, than the tech equipment they could have made the space more welcoming and cosy.
One thing i really didn't like about the room is the door, its feel so unsafe as it didn't feel secure, the bed was so close and there was a large gap beneath which anyone could peep and push things underneath.

Breakfast was the usual minimalist continental (not my favourite), but the breakfast area again felt like an office break out area.

The gym was in a basement with terrible lighting, very eerie and didn't feel safe to be down there alone, so many doors with no idea what's behind them. Again the equipment was over the top,every bit of kit had a TV with internet access!! ridiculous,

Over all i think the owners have spend loads of money to be considered as boutique, its far from it and doesn't justify the price tag, but to be honest if they spend more on comfort features they would have done much better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front, the room at the back face a wall and flat windows adjacent to the build...

I recently completed a week long stay at the Design Hotel F6. I've been traveling to GVA for business 2 to 4 times per year so I've stayed in numerous hotels throughout the area. I was very impressed with this hotel - in fact, its nicer than a lot of the four star hotels in Geneva. As a bonus the hotel includes free Wi-Fi (others charge $20 or more per night CF) and includes complimentary breakfast. Location is nice as its close to numerous very nice restaurants, close to the lake, and close to the main train station. This hotel is also 1 block off of the main arterial (Rue de Laussane) and far enough away from the busier areas of the Paques so its quite. Also, this hotel was very quite even though its only 1 block away from the train line.

The hotel is clean and close to the Railway Station, the tram and the Lakeside. The staff are very helpful, friendly and polite. The breakfast is very good and rates are reasonable for Geneva. I stayed one week in November on the top floor in a lovely room with plenty of light from the roof windows which is great when you work from the room. Each room is equipped with a Nespresso machine which is a really nice touch and in my case most welcome.The hotel also have a well- equipped gym free of charge for guests
Excellent value and I will stay here next time I return to Geneva.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are sunny and the gym is in my opinion excellent

Great hotel in Geneva, clean and tidy bathroom/furniture. Just a couple of blocks walk from the waterfront, though it wasn't in the friendliest area, didn't feel that safe walking back at night. The building was in process of installing air conditioning units which would be great for future people. The breakfast was really great, and free!! Was a bit high in price, but thats to be expected for Geneva. It was very good value for one of the most expensive cities! Service was great, very helpful and friendly.
