This hotel is in many ways standard Best Western fayre (mid range hotel chain) but with a couple of peculiarities. It is roughly 20k from Geneva airport on the main dual carriageway to Lausanne. As such, well placed for those with cars and needing a stopover but it's in the middle of nowhere if you fly in and you have to walk 20 minutes (including going under the motorway) to even get to the village. The hotel does offer a shuttle to the airport and 1-2 outskirt pick up points in Geneva (on bus routes) but it won't take you into town as such. So at night and without a car you are largely stuck there and a captive audience for the not-that-nice Space Bar (with the usual outer space Swiss booze prices), the rather ordinary Bistrot with burger and chips costing about twenty pounds (again somewhat normal for Switzerland) and the magnificient Restaurant des Artes, which is truly pricey (quite eye-watering for a Brit, even one used to London prices) but also quite superb (one of the best meals I've ever had in Switzerland). Rooms are pretty ordinary and the Wifi is not that good (many guests were saying they could only get intermittent connectivity - I managed about 70% of the time). When I stayed the painters and decorators were in, so my corridor smelt really strongly of solvents although the room was fine. I suppose I was a little surprised that a hotel would put guests on the same floor where work was going on. Opposite my room both bedroom doors were off, there were bare electrics and workmen coming and going carrying tools and paint through the daylight hours. I was in a conference meeting (downstairs) and not staying for leisure, so pretty unconcerned by all of this; but maybe would have been if I'd snuck back for a siesta and you might well have been if you were on holiday. The notice in reception saying don't leave valuables in your room cos we've had break ins was a bit disconcerting. You expect that in central Geneve near Cornavin station but not out here. The notice in the lifts saying that the Fitness centre was temporarily closed for refurbishment was also disappointing.
