You can't beat the location -- right in the old city, a block from Lake Geneva, lots of nice restaurants and (pricey) shopping nearby. But the service basically stinks -- and, speaking of stinking, our room reeked of cigar smoke. One night in the room, even with our bags shut tight and the windows wide open, and all of our clothes and luggage stank for the next day. My sense is that these are actual apartments that the owners rent out for individual nights through the building's management. The person at the front desk was very nice but couldn't help with anything. Also, we had to leave the hotel at 6:30 AM to catch a cab to the airport. Although the front desk person told us the desk would have staff beginning at 6AM, nobody was there, so we had to roam the streets of Geneva at 6:30 in the morning to hail a cab on the street. It's cheap, but I would have paid an extra $100 or more for a nicer place.
