“Very good location and amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

Close to train station, to the metro mall, trams n bus station, many restaurants n shops nearby. Most Importantly walking distance to the Tourist promotion office and Lake Leman n the Jet deau!! even though it was next to the Cornavin station, there was hardly any dixtrubing noises.
It has a gym upstairs, breakfast was alright and comfortable room, couldnt ask for more. Stayed for 2 nites n me n my 22 yr old son enjoyed it much. For 160Euros, was worth it n will stay here if i pass by Geneva again. Plus free wifi!! why not??

The location by the station and close to everything is something you can not compete with. The rooms are nice and clean and actually what can you further expect ?? Still for the price you pay, a high price you like some nicer bar, more friendly reception and most problematic- nice breakfast. The amazing design panorama breakfast room ends with a poor breakfast, poor selection bringing you to a question- Why ? Why you waste such a credit ?

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor- it is great

At last, a mid-range Swiss hotel with rooms that are larger than broom closets. The hotel is very close the the station, but quiet and well sound proofed. Furnishings are basic but pleasant, and the beds are the usual rather austere Swiss mid-range offering.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor an a decent view towards the city.

This hotel is typically Swiss. On the plus side; its well located right next to the main train station, in the middle of the shopping district and close to the Lake. On the negative; there are no home comforts at all, the rooms desperately need updating and its expensive for what it is. We needed a bed for the night to break up our journey to the Alps. This is actually a good option as its got more character than an airport hotel and its in the city so there's stuff to do. The staff are friendly and helpful but don't be fooled that you are paying for anything more than a bed for the night because that's pretty much all you'll get. Breakfast is CHF19 extra per person which initially seemed a lot until we looked elsewhere and found that its not bad value really. Not much more to say. This is Geneva and everything's expensive, grey and cold in the winter. Oh yes, the whole place is very clean actually.

Geneva is an expensive place, and there are many hotels with rooms you could hardly turn around in. Having tried several over the years, I've been returning to Cornavin Hotel. the room are good sized. Simple, clean lines, functional, with comfortable mattresses. Sizes vary, but all work well for single business travelers, especially the long desk space. Breakfast room has a great view, and reasonable if no frills offerings. Large foyer with lots of seating allows for different groups to congregate and meet in varying spaces. Step outside, and you can cross the street into the train station, or the bus stop for several major routes, including the international organizations, the botanical gardens, or the main shopping district. A couple of blocks away, you are into the restaurants of Les Pacquis area. In the other directions would be Manor, the dept store. The lake is also just a short stroll away. But above all else, it feels nice not to be cramped.

This hotel was recommended to us for its location which was ideal for us. It is directly across the road from Cornavin Station which in turn is just five minutes by train to the airport. We needed to take a bus the next morning and there are a number of bus and tram stops right outside. Although our room overlooked the railway station it was very quiet. The room was clean, perfectly comfortable and had all the facilities one could reasonably expect of a 4 star hotel. As others have pointed out, Geneva is an expensive city and we thought the hotel very good value. Breakfast wasn't the best and it was quite expensive but it was OK and very convenient and the view was excellent. It would be very easy to go out and have a continental breakfast at the station or in a local café. Altogether we were pleased with our stay and would stay here again if we needed to stop over in Geneva.

Room Tip: Best to ask for a room on as high a floor as possible

This hotel has a strange sparse 1950s feel to it. I had a very decent sized but charmless room with a view of the station's shunting yards - ideal for Swiss train spotters who want to stay in the warm. The breakfast room at the top of the hotel has superb views across Geneva to the lake, (I'm surprised that they don't seem to use it as a restaurant or bar at night) but the breakfast itself was very poor with weak coffee, industrial jam, factory cheese and some frightening looking sausages. A functional and dull hotel with little reason to go back.
