This place was a superb last minute find. It was much cheaper than the city centre hotels. For only £60 approx per night for 3 nights I got a small apartment/suite of rooms rather than a normal small hotel room. There was a living room with sofa, desk and satellite tv. There was a twin bedroom and en-suite shower and toilet. There was also a kitchenette. There was also a small balcony (which I did not use - it was a little cold!).
My gripes are all minor: a lack of hooks in the shower-room, wifi you had to pay for, restricted opening hours of the reception. Furthermore it is not really a hotel so if you are expecting breakfast etc then forget it; there is no restaurant. I was not expecting this so this did not bother me. The location is ideal in terms of nearness to shops, the lake, train station. However it is in the middle of Geneva's red light district which might be a little offputting to some people!
All in all very good value. The gentleman working at reception was very friendly and helpful. And like all hotels in Geneva you get a free travel pass thrown in when you check in for free travel on public transport. Highly recommended!
