I wanted a cheapish hotel in a convenient and safe location because I was visiting Geneva on my own - and couldn't have chosen better. I was amazed to find such a high standard of accommodation at such a reasonable price in such an expensive city. he Hotel Cristal is perfectly located literally three minutes walk from trains, trams and buses, and ten minutes walk from the Lake. There's a Starbucks next door and plenty of cafes and restaurants around. A couple of people on Tripadvisor have mentioned that it's near the unofficial red light district, but please don't let this put you off. It is also near four and five star hotels such as the Kempinski, and is really not a problem. The area is very busy during the day and evening and I never felt remotely intimidated, even on my own. The staff are professional and helpful, and the rooms are clean, modern, compact and cleverly-designed so they contain everything you need. Breakfast is in a bright and airy room on the top floor and you can look out over the rooftops as you help yourself to cereals, fruit, cheese, yogurt, bread and coffee. The Cristal isn't the sort of hotel you'd book for a romantic weekend, but it doesn't charge enough to offer the luxury you'd want for that. All-in-all for velue for money and location I give it five out of five.
