Hotel de Geneve
Ranked #60 of 106 Hotels in Geneva
Reviewed 16 July 2012

We stayed for three nights recently in this small hotel. We booked a triple room which was small, but comfortable. The bathrooms do remind you of cruise ships, but we found that to be true throughout Europe on our budget. There is no AC which could be a problem if it's hot because the street outside was very busy and noisy. The breakfast was ample, the staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent value for Geneva.

Hotel de Geneve is a short walk away from the main train station. It is a small boutique hotel and the rooms are a bit small. But I found it to be adequate and enjoyed the view from my window overlooking the street. The staff are friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast is included with the room rate and so is a bus pass. Unfortunately, wifi internet is not included but is available for a surcharge.

I would probably stay there again.

P.S. Switzerland is an expensive country. So be prepared to spend $$$$.

The hotel is placed quite conveniently, a short walk from the train station and very near the lake and the main bridge. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was good and plentiful.The decor needs an updated or at least some 'freshening' of the many home made decorations. a bit dusty and faded. The bed was fine for a two star and felt very clean and fresh. the door locking and unlocking system is rather complicated! This is fine for a quick stay as you are passing through.

I stayed there for business purposes. It is well located, close to a tram which will take you to the UN headquaters. It is not far from the train station - you can easily walk.
The hotel has a lovely breakfast area. No internet is available in the room and there is only one computer to share in the small lobby.
Breakfast has limited choice, but still not bad.

The price is reasonable in comparison to other Geneva hotels.

Room Tip: There are some nice big rooms from the street side (but a bit noisy), if you want to be quite you ra...

This hotel was just a couple of minutes walk away from the main train station as well as the old town, so it is a great location! We stayed in room 104, and the room was a bit tight by American standards, but was perfectly adequate. The bed was acceptable, but not great. The pillows were awful. The bathroom was small. Anyone who has been on a cruise would recognize it as a tiny cruise bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The water pressure in the shower was very strong. There was a nice French style breakfast included in the price and the desk clerks were very knowledgeable and friendly. There was also a public transit card included in the price with a bus stop right outside the door. As with other European hotels, it was older, but very clean and served all our needs.

Room Tip: If you desire your own bathroom, be sure to request it when you reserve the room. Otherwise you may...

Price was right. Close to the train station, We walked there.
Ihad only one gripe, The breakfast. We got down at approx 9am all the table setting had been used and not reset. I had to ask for a plate, a cup, a orange juice.
We were the only two in the room so why wasnt the settings reset. I bit slack.

Room Tip: Yes, do stay here
