“Nice and Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

I stayed here for 2 weeks when on a business trip. My stay was long and wanted a place which you be comfortable. Calvy proved to be a decent place to stay in. The room was comfortable. No disturbance, quite and calm environment. The rooms were big enough and clean. The hotel provides microwave and fridge in all the rooms which was a relief specifically when you are in Geneva. TV doesn't offer you too many channels to view, depend on the WIFI to entertain yourself. The cafe downstairs is nothing great. Don't include breakfast in your stay as the options provided is not that great. Staffs are friendly and would try to help you with your concerns. Only problem is not many speaks English.

We stayed 2 nights here, loved Geneva but would not stay here again. The room was pretty awful really, run down and barely adequate. On the plus side, the staff were really good, helpful and welcoming, and we enjoyed the breakfast!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

We found a fairly run-down, old-fashioned property that was certainly not the three stars it claims. Everything fell short of a good standard. For instance, we even found a middle-aged person in his underwear asleep on the bed when we checked-in, because the hotel didn't know the room they had allocated us was occupied! The car-park for which an extra fee is charged is not under cover but in a non-secure carpark open to public access. The breakfast was terrible and not recommended. However, it is reasonably well-located for the old part of the town and the Saturday morning farmers market.

You are in Geneva so this is 3 stars, everywhere else in Europe this will be 2. Very basic and cheap, rather old and anonymous building, tiny doors and walls, hostel like decor. No specific complain if this was a 2 stars hotel but pretends to be a 3 stars and above all charges accordingly. If you do not find anything else in Geneva at a reasonable price it can be considered but only under those circumstances.

I enjoyed staying at Calvy.
In this expensive city it was nice to find this hotel well located, near to the Old City in the corner of a main street with tram, supermarket, stores
coffeeshops and restaurants.

The room had microwave oven and fridge, safebox,good bed.
Breakfast was continental plus juices,eggs and fruits, what is quite reasonable.
Nice staff,helpful.
I would return to this hotel

Room Tip: Better ask room in the back side

Calvy is an older hotel. Near to the 2 main shopping streets in Geneva and the public transport. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy but dated. Breakfast was a good continental and included in the overall price. Would stay here again.

Stayed for one night as part of a business trip. Hotel was fine just to sleep in but I'm glad I wasn't staying longer or paying for it myself! Facilities in room were very basic (old tv, weak shower, very thin sheets and thin walls so I could hear every time the person in the next room walked around, plugged in phone charger etc.) Breakfast selection was poor - coffee and cornflakes. Geneva is expensive but at over £110 a night I would still expect more than this.
