Hotel Churchill
Ranked #95 of 106 Hotels in Geneva
Reviewed 7 March 2013

I think people are being a little harsh with this place. The staff is very helpful... yes the tv is small and old and yes the hotel has probably not been renovated in 20 years, but the beds are comfy, the room is clean. Hardly likely one bothers with a tv when on vacation.

It has a mini bar, full bathtub and a hairdryer. Can't get that in a two star hotel. Buy your own booze and stick it in the fridge. The only thing I can REALLY complain about is the heat in the room. 26C and I'm baking in here, even with the windows open. And for a double room, I expected a queen sized mattress on the frame and not two singles. Oh well!

Yes the breakfast is expensive... this is Geneva and they have also improved on that... cheese, ham, eggs, bacon etc.

If you plan to spend days locked up in your room in the lap of luxury, this hotel is not for you. But if it's just a place to lay your head for the night... I recommend it

Room Tip: big bath tub and very quiet, room 402

1 nights stay here was enough and fortunately cost was covered by Swiss Airlines which had cancelled our homeward flight due to snow at Heathrow. At published rates - grossly overpriced. I have stayed in better 2 star hotels so how does this rate 4! Rather seedy back street establishment that really struggled to cope with an influx of guests from the airport but the fact that it had rooms available at very short notice is perhaps a reflection of its poor quality. Experienced similar problems as other reviewers with charging - in my case a cash deposit of 300 cfr was required to cover 'extras' and receptionist was very surprised when I insisted on a receipt before accepting room key. Despite giving them an airline accommodation voucher on arrival, they still tried to charge me for the room from this deposit. Had I used a credit card I would now be having problems as I would only have found out when back in UK.

Room Tip: Simply don't stay. We had 503 on top floor in corner which is probably about best corner to be a...

The reception is drab. The staff were not interested. The first room I had the wardrobe fell over. The second room had the safe 6ft inside the wardrobe and the door kept falling open so had to duck each time i opened the wardrobe door. Plug sockets not working properly. Far too hot in the rooms. Breakfast poor, just passable. How did it get a 4 star rating? Why did they take a CHF 220 charge on my card at the checkin?? Normally it is just a swipe in case of events.

This hotel operates illegally. The hotel was so dreadful I had to negotiate a discount (see others comments for details on the poor quality). I recevied a bill to this effect and my card was charged the discounted price. Later that afternoon, after I'd left the hotel, they charge the extra amount back to my card without authorisation. This has now been reported to the police and the booking.com.

DO NOT STAY HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

I found a good deal on this hotel on the internet and thought it sounded okay. 4 star, free wifi etc. It was terrible. The room smelt of old air-freshener, the paint was peeling in the bathroom and the place was just so very dated and old-fashioned. The over whelming impression of the hotel from the lobby to the breakfast room and the bedroom was that it was dark and gloomy. It was impossible to get a good level of light in the bedroom. In the bathroom (which was the smallest I've seen in a long while) there wasn't even a full shower - just a shower head which you had to hold by hand to use. Breakfast was poor - not good value for the 18CHF charged. The only reademing feature was the helpfulness of some of the staff. The night receptionist was firendly and helpful.

The air condition didn't work. The TV was from the last century with only two channels. The pillow didn't look like a pillow, until I realized that it had to be a pillow. I wondered were they found the paintings?? There was a lamb without a switch. I really recommend this Hotel for many reasons... Incredible and Outstanding !!!! But the Best is the Price ! Don't miss this Hotel experience during your visit in Geneva...

One of the hottest days of the year and the a/c wasn't working. Went to complain and the staff were yelling at each other and eventually they said "oh sorry it does that sometimes and it won't be fixed until tomorrow". The TV has 4 free channels which isn't a big thing but still annoying consideringy friends' 1 star room had more.
