As a frequent visitor to the Novotel Geneve downtown when I pulled up to this one it kind of looked like an old prison. I didn't like how far it was to downtown Geneva, I didn't like how there was nothing decent around (unless you consider McDonalds decent)...
My room was a typical Novotel which was nice. And even though I was really close to the stairs where everyone passes by my room was amazingly quiet.
Going into town was actually very easy provided by the free shuttle to the airport then we just hopped the quick train into downtown Geneva and to be honest with traffic during peak hours being very saturated the train was actually a blessing during those times.
Do reserve the shuttle to the airport for when you are going for your flight as they only have max 7 spaces per 30 minutes.
We didn't know that you had to call the hotel to get picked up from the airport so we hung around the shuttle stop for about 20 mins before calling them.
Overall: If you are here just for one night it definitely does the trick for about half the price of the Novotel in downtown Geneva.
