Stayed here for three nights in September, and was slightly nervous given that it was quite a bit cheaper than other comparable hotels in Geneva... but am glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised.
Many past reviewers have mentioned the location, so let me address that immediately; it's fine! Very easy to get to the train station; 10 minutes walk, or even shorter if you take the tram (which is free for anyone staying in a hotel in Geneva). Also close to the United Nations, close to the lake, and a pleasant walk into the historic city center. At night, there are some "dodgy" looking places between the hotel and the lake/ city center, with groups of people around... but I never felt unsafe, and you can also avoid these areas by going straight from the tram to the hotel.
Other than that, no complaints at all. The room was very spacious, with a nice seating area and lovely view of the lush foliage in the courtyard at the rear... the outlook to the front is much less inspiring, so try to request a room facing the courtyard. The bathroom was spacious and clean. Very nice amenities including bathrobes, slippers, decent toiletries, and a Nespresso machine.
The front desk staff are very pleasant and helpful, and all encounters we had were positive.
There is a small breakfast area, which we didn't have a chance to visit. No restaurant, but their sister hotels in the Manotel group have some nice places to eat... I'd recommend the Swiss themed one in Hotel Edelweiss.
Overall, I'd say this hotel offers excellent value for money. Nothing flashy, but good accommodation and service, in a convenient location.
