I think I would have liked this place even better if we hadn't just arrived from Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof in Interlaken. But backpackers set the bar really high and it was hard to live up to here. Nevertheless the rooms were nice and clean, Most of the rooms are on the lake side and so you have a nice view of the city and Lake Geneva. Bathrooms are across the hall on the train side. You can feel the whole building rumble when the trains go by.
WiFi worked well in my room, Downstairs there was a smallish kitchen that worked well for making our own breakfast (breakfast is not included) and a lobby area. With 26 of us in the group the lobby was jammed and there wasn't enough room for everyone to even find a place to sit.
The guest house is just a very short walk from the train station, and also a very short walk from the M1 Grancy station. This line gets you to all the interesting places. Down to the lake where you can walk to the Olympic Museum, and into the old part of the city. When you check in you will get a transportation pass that works on the metro lines as part of the deal.
The manager at the desk was friendly, and had good restaurant recommendations for us in the evenings.
