“location is good but the room is fair enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

The hotel is located at a good location which near to the geneva station, and the geneva lake. And it close to the tourist centre which you can get much information as you like.

For the hotel, it looks tidy but i think the room quite small for 4 people, and also the toilet is quite small too. The bed is alright, and it got TV.

For the breakfast, they only provide room service.

This hotel is in a good location. A few blocks from the train station and a few block from the lake. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. We were in room 1 which had two single beds. The bathroom was tiny with only a shower. There was no AC in the room but it did have a fan. The mini refrigerator did not work nor did the desk lamp. The security bolt on the door fell off. The breakfast was brought to our room, fruit, yogurt, toast and a croissant, tea and coffee. If you are looking for a good location and don't mind simple than this is a good place to stay.

The hotel is very close to everything. 5 minutes to the train station, 2 minute to Lake Geneva. Nice small cafes in every direction. There is currently some construction going on in the area that starts fairly early. Breakfast delivered to your room. Key Tours pick-up and drop-off is across the street.

Tor Hotel is not like other hotels in this price bracket. In fact it reminded me of a Backpackers / hostel type accommodation. It occupies a couple of floors within a building and you need to take a cramped lift to the third floor to find the reception. The room was spacious and very clean and it is located close to the main railway station and the lake. They are the only positives. There is no double glazing on the window so the traffic and street noise is very noticeable but the worst is that you can hear everything in your neighbour's room. Our neighbour liked to watch TV all night so for our 2 night stay we had to bang on the wall to get them to turn it down. Breakfast was a croissant, an inedible piece of toast and some yoghurt. The second morning they added an apple! This place is so expensive and although Geneva is generally expensive, I would recommend you find somewhere else to stay.

After reading good reviews, I booked this hotel on March 2nd for May 22th-29th. When I contacted the hotel on May 4th to re-confirm my stay, the manager replied that this hotel was overbooked due to error in the system and if I would like, I coud complain about him to Obama.

Dear

We are really sorry for all this and we would like to present our excuses

First Carmen’s mail is wrong because when I asked her to reconfirm your reservation she thought this was for Visa demand purpose

It is very often that our guest from Russia are asking us to send them a confirmation to receive Shengen european visa …

On May 5th she had sent 4 other mails for this purpose, it does not excuse but may be it explains her mistake!!

Obviously you do not need Visa as Americans !! The mistake was not to check your adress..



Last but not least we are chocked about the call you had on May 4th and we really are sorry about it.
The two receptionist on duty that particular day were women and do not recall about your phone call
Myself I was out of Geneva on May 4th for ATM (All travel Market) in London
It is a mystery, we do not know who could answer to you the way you describe.

Obviously we understand you do not accept such an answer and we can assure you it is not Torhotel’s staff use !!

We want to present our deepest appologies for this answer enven thow we are not able to explain …

Today we can confirm your reservation is ok

Arriving May 22nd for 7 nights departure on May 29th

One STANDARD room at daily price of CHF 190, 5% deposit already paid

including continental breakfast served in the room, free WI FI Internet, free public transport pass in Geneva and all taxes

We hope you will have a nice stay in Genevsa and we can assure you we will do our best to welcome you

Staying at your disposal and waiting to welcome you

Best regards

Laurent Patrelle
Genral Manager

Tor Hotel is situated equidistant between Geneve Cornavin railway station and the lake, within easy walking distance of both. The bus station (gare routiere) is in the middle of the square in which the hotel stands. For convenience of access by public transport it couldn't be better: arrival by car might present a bit more of a problem. The hotel is located in the upper parts of a multi-purpose building. On arrival, make your way to reception on the third floor.

For a very pricey city, the Tor Hotel offers good value for money. Our room was spotlessly clean and wholly adequate for our needs. Given that there is no breakfast room, breakfast (French-style: coffee; croissant; toasted bread; conserves; fruit and yoghurt on request) is delivered to one's bedroom - throughout our stay precisely at the time requested. The one drawback was that the wifi signal in the bedroom was somewhat intermittent. However, it was always strong in the cozy reception area. Without exception, the staff were helpful and friendly.

On arrival at reception, we were issued with a public transport ticket providing free use of all services (bus, trolleybus, tram, train, ferryboat) within the local transport zone throughout our stay. The public transport system provides comprehensive and frequent coverage of the city and its environs: for us, the ticket proved to be a real boon.
