Stayed for one night. The hotel is very close to the lac and fresly renovated. The front desk staff was helpfull. They gave us a day pass bus ticket upon arrival and breakfast had everything you could ask for.

Very impressed. Came for a short stay and despite reservations concerning the hotel around reading prior reviews I was totally happy with my stay here. Hotel looks new and recently renovated and is clean, modern and well equipped. Best location possible - all public transports drops you off by Gare Cornavin which is a few moments walk from the hotel. Best spot to walk to the Lake, to multiple cafés, shopping and tourist areas - the best places in Geneva are only 10 minutes max away, tram, taxi boat or tram. Staff were extremely friendly, helpful and made our stay memorable. Couldn't recommend this place more.

The hotel is within close proximity to pretty much everything, the station, the lake, all the restaurants, shops etc, but the street-rue de berne that the hotel is at is very rough, lots immigrants, drunk people and dodgy looking shops. On numerous occasions, I felt I was followed, and I had to wear my backpack at the front and hands in my pocket.
Upon arrival, the hotel staff was nice and friendly and the reception area was nicely decorated and air conditioned. But the story ends there, as I move into the 'world's smallest' lift, through a dark corridor into my room.
The room was not very clean, there was at least a couple of flying bugs in the room when I moved in. The air conditioning didn't work throughout the whole stay, and many TV channels didn't have signals including the only one I can watch which was BBC world. The bed mattress felt like it was broken, I slept the wrong way round because there wasn't any support at the portion of the mattress when your normally lay your back, and the bed-end was definitely firmer. The only good thing was that the wifi speed was quite good, and that was pretty much my only entertainment in the room.
The next morning, breakfast was from 7-10am, I got down to the dining at 9 30am, and they have already stopped re-filling food. The choices was quite limited really compare to most 3 star hotels that offer breakfast, few juices, cheese, salami, few baked items, few breads, yogurt, fruit and egg, that was about it.
Overall, I think for solo travel, in a very expensive place like Geneva, it was probably not that bad after all for about 190 francs for two nights, but really the Hotel was very average if not below average, and if I were to travel with family, this would not be my choice again.

The hotel was located centrally.....just a 2min walk from the main geneve cornavin station.
Many type of cuisines were nearby the hotel
Hotel staff were really friendly..........they gave us all the amenties we needed
Only problem was the we had to book 2 rooms as they didn't have 1 room for 4 persons
Lift was really small....... max.2 people at a time
overall it was a nice and comfortable hotel
Thank You windsor for d experience................

Although the staff was very kind and friendly, the hotel is not in good conditions. The light of the mirror in the bathroom didn't work, the walls are dirty and need a painting, air conditioning wasn't working,... And the 2nd day of our stay they didn't clean the room. When we arrived in the afternoon we told the receptionist the room had not been cleaned and he said he was very sorry, but he didn't have staff to make it clean at that time (while we had been out all day, and they could have cleaned it perfectly)... And moreover, just below our room there is a pub, that did not close until 1 am... impossible to sleep with the music so loud. I would not deffinitively recommend it.

With it being only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Geneva and 2 minutes from the train/bus station we found it an ideal base for our 3 night stay in Geneva. So yeah great location (apart from it being in the red light district but that's not so bad) The rooms were a bit scruffy round the edges but on the whole the hotel was nice. Great value for money.
