Just back from the Drake Longchamp, stayed 2 nights, booked 2 rooms, one for us and one for friends that we had been staying with in the French Alps. I was very apprehensive after reading the other reviews, especially as it was a thank-you to our friends for our stay with them.
Room was very spacious, queen bed, duvet with white bedding, changed each day. 2 metres space around bed on all sides. Large bathroom, yes a hand held shower, but plenty of hot water-clean quality towels . Kichenette- handy for making a cup of tea and cooling the wine ( bring your own or go to the Manor supermarket - bottom floor / there is a restaurant there with a panoramic view of Geneva). TV , plenty of channels including English ones. Reception fine, a young girl being trained under the watchful eye of the more experienced. Breakfast included was good, cereals ,Fruit (tinned) yogurt, different breads, croissants, ham, cheese, scrambled egg ,fruit juices, tea. coffee etc and very attentive staff. Plates being removed as we finished with them and all the items were replenished before they emptied ( even 25 mins before breakfast closed) Breakfast room small , on the second day one family had to wait 5 mins.
No air con but fan in room and road quiet enough to leave window open all night. .Yes the bathroom and kitchenette need to be spruced up but for £59p.n. icl breakfast ( booked through Otel) it was a bargain by Geneva standards- car parking in garage about £11p.n- street parking virtually impossible. Next to the Epsom hotel, seen their prices?
10 min walk to get to water bus to get over to the other side of lake- the free travel card that all hotels have to give you is great-go to Carouge on the tram a great place to spend a few hours with lots of restaurants- lovely meal in Hotel Mount Blanc for about £7. Hotel 10 mins walk from train station and red light district. Geneva is small so with the free public transport nothing is far away. So if you are not looking for luxury and happy with a Travel Lodge I would say try here
