La Divonne
Ranked #10 of 10 Hotels in Divonne-les-Bains
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Well for really cheap prices, you can get a room with 4star quality.
10 minutes walking distance to but station and half hour total distance to Geneva's city center, this hotel made our visit to Geneva unbelievably low cost. The rooms were excellent with optional room service and a complete set of kitchen requirements. We had our breakfast and dinner at the lovely balcony.
But remember that you have to walk a long way to station if you don't have (or rented) a car. So, the smart choice is to rent a car, have this place, be happy with your wallet and enjoy the peace & quite place, the clean and bright rooms with lovely & helping personnel.

Room Tip: There is very little difference in price for smaller rooms vs. larger ones. so enjoy the bigger room...

I stayed at the Zenith Residence for 3 nights.

Budget
Close to Geneva
silent rooms

- points

- High speed internet is actually around 5 - 15 kpbs. very very slow!
- There are NO digital channels, they all gave " no signal"
- Breakfast is certainly not worth 8 euros. Better eat in your room
- Very loud environment, also very loud hotel visitors.
- Building is a bit strange, feels like some sort of asylum center.

This Residhotel has two parts to it, the Divonne (older) and the Versoix (added more recently).
We stayed in the Divonne for 10 nights in August. The Versoix may be a little more modern and comfortable, but the overall impression I have covers both.

Liked:
+ Divonne is a lovely town.
+ Accommodation is about 10 mins walk from Centre Ville.
+ Surrounding countryside is beautiful.
+ Plenty of car parking.
+ Basic, but satisfactory room and furniture and apartment.
+ Wireless modem in room, although I didn’t use it.

Disliked:

- My credit card was charged for the full payment weeks before I departed for my trip. I am accustomed to paying a deposit and settling my bill at the end of my stay so I was surprised and displeased to see this approach.
- No air conditioning in room.
- No elevator up to floors 2 & 3.
- Small indoor pool is not operational.
- Linen/towel change supposed to be weekly, but we had to remind them to do this after 7 days.
- Apartment balcony was dirty, not maintained and did not drain rain water well. It was not inviting to use at any time of the 10 days we stayed there.
- No night-time reception to call to take action about loud and rowdy residents. Screaming and shouting at 1am was disturbing and intimidating.
- Abandoned broken down car(s) in car park.
- Uncollected & overflowing garbage bins smelling for days.

Local residents told me that they are not impressed with the condition of the resid hotel and the way it is kept and maintained.

To me, the ResidHotel seems out of place. Its located in a very up-market town and only about 20km away from Geneva which is a city of very highest standards of living. However, if you stay in the Residhotel Divonne, expect to drop your standards for your stay.

The hotel is quite difficult to find in Divonne as the street it's on is not on sat nav. We arrived about 8.30 and so the reception was closed but there were confusing instructions about how to get in. The hotel is very big but eeerily empty. The corridors were cold and deserted and the timers on the lights were quite short so you were often plunged into darkness.

Once in the room it was fine. The room was clean and very large. It would appear that the hotel is indeeda potential temporary residence as there was a kitchenette with lots of crockery and equipment. Not really necessary for a 1 night stay but interesting all the same.

The pool was fine and in view of the price it was good value but my children were convinced we were staying in a European Bates Motel.
