I stayed at Hotel Carmen for 2 nights last week (November) and I would not hesitate to stay there again.
The hotel, room and shared bathroom were incredibly clean and well maintained. The staff were super helpful and friendly, and made me feel very welcome. The room had all the basics that are needed for a comfortable stay. I would say it is a fantastic little place to stay on a budget!
Location-wise, it is directly opposite a tram stop called Uni Mail, and it is only about a 15 minute ride (on the number 15 tram heading towards "Nations" to the city centre (Gare Cornavin)). There is also a Lidl supermarket nearby (10 mins max walk - turn right from the hotel entrance), which is a God-send in an expensive city like Geneva!
Getting to Hotel Carmen from Geneva airport is very easy too. My preferred route was to take a train from the airport to Geneva (Gare Cornavin) and then the number 15 tram to Uni Mail (not Plainpalais!) heading towards Pallettes. Overall journey took me less than 45mins.
Thanks Hotel Carmen for a wonderful stay! :)More
