Stayed in the quadruple room. Clean and spacious. Bathroom was clean as well. Did not feel confined. Great for a budget hotel. Close to the tram line, so easy access to the city centre and the tourist attractions. breakfast was simple but adequate. Certainly a worthwhile hotel. Can't mark them down anywhere

We arrived, not really expecting much, but to say the room was sparse was an understatement.It contained a bed, a telly, a shower room and a small fridge. There was not an ounce of frill and the only freebie, was a small bar of soap. However, it was very clean and the room maintenance was exceptionally good. The hotel's position was also great as we were in the right place for all the shops, trams etc.
On the ground floor was the restaurant cum bar cum cafe..The breakfast was either bread or croissants with jam but there was plenty of it. The staff were faultless and very friendly.
For £80 per night, I expected a little more in the way of comfort .

Geneva itself is not worth re-visiting as it is uncomfortably expensive and not very attractive as a city. ( We paid £40 for 2 curries and 2 drinks on the first night ) As far as Christmas cheer and atmosphere is concerned, forget it, there was none. The 4 stall Christmas market was pathetic and horribly expensive.

It seem a 2 stars, hall smelly, in the evening there is confusion (for the restaurant).
Under the hotel there’s a room for party, with high volume music up to 1.00am (nobody told us).
My compliant was futile but I had to Pay in advance so I’ve not choice.
With Euro change we paid more than 210 Chf . It isn’t worth while, for this price I demand to sleep.

Hotel Calvy is a 3 star hotel, but one must remember, it is a 3 star in Europe--the website is accurate with the pictures-rooms are exactly as pictured. The hotel is more like a hostel, except you do have a private bath. We expected a little more comfort in the rooms, but the staff were exceptionally nice, the cafe is a great place to have drinks and socialize, and it is centrally located, which makes it an excellent place to stay to see the area. It is small, the rooms are bare bones, but the shower is hot and the hotel is quiet especially on the back side. Little to no decor in the rooms, hallways, or public areas. There is a breakfast provided, but is is sparse but filling, The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable, even though extra pillows were not available, and the sheets a bit scratchy. Everyone that works there was nice--variety at the bar and cafe in the way of drinks and food,. Since Geneva is very expensive, this is an excellent alternative. But just know that there are not many amenities here, but it is an excellent bargain for the conservative traveler.

We stayed at the Hotel Calvy in May 2007 during a long week-end. The hotel is quiet and clean. Location is central and parking can be arranged next to the hotel for CHF20 per day. The staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms are simple and clean. Would recommend it if you want to visit Geneva.

We stayed at the Calvy and found it to be a good 3 star hotel, in a central location, 5 minute walk to the lake and the main shopping street, and right on a main tram line. Rooms clean and bathroom good, also a nice surprise to find a fridge and microwave in all rooms and LCD TV, breakfast OK as well. We did not have a car so can't comment on parking.
