The Hotel Cornavin has a modern interior, very well done, very clean. I didn't find it worn at all. My daughter and I stayed one night to catch a morning flight and the location, right next to the train station, was ideal. It's just a short walk to the waterfront. Across a short bridge and you find yourself in a busy shopping district and then up the hill to the old city - very walkable.
We found the hotel very comfortable and the staff friendly. The room was good-sized, modern and clean though, as others have pointed out, the lighting was somewhat dim. The TV set was smaller than I would have expected, but that's a pretty minor quibble.
The panoramic breakfast room on the 8th floor was excellent, and the cold continental breakfast selection was very good.
What I found annoying was that, although the hotel was not particularly busy or full, they put us into Room 202 - it literally backs right onto the train station platform, Voie 1! My daughter is fond of saying that our bathroom was on the tracks! We were too tired and lazy to ask for a room change and, quite frankly, I was curious as to what it would be like with trains zipping by every so often. Surprisingly, it didn't bother us at all, a testament to their soundproofing. We heard and felt a soft rumble whenever a train went by. Nothing that kept us awake, but those more sensitive to noise may find this unacceptable.
Nevertheless, we would recommend immediately turning down Room 202 if offered it!
I've also stayed at the Warwick, which is on the other side of the train station square from the Cornavin and would recommend the Cornavin over the Warwick (it was drab and worn in comparison to the Cornavin).
