“Business Stay at Ibis Budget Geneva”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

It has been my second stay at the Ibis Budget Geneva Hotel. I have been totally satisfied with the service and the room. The room and common areas were clean and having seen the cleaning personnel at work, I can say that same is done meticulously. This is an excellent hotel for business travel. The rooms are very simple yet cosy and comfortable. The hotel is close to shopping centres and also not so far from the city centre. Transport facilities to the City Centre or to the airport are regular and the bus stops are very close to the hotel. It would be appreciated, however, that the restaurant provides a better choice of meals for dinner.

This budget ibis, should not be categorized as a "Hotel" because it is not one! The service is dismal and I don't just mean the minimalistic rooms! Its more like a "slightly" upscale hostel of some sort with very poor service. There was no phone in the rooms, and if you need adapters for the electric outlets you have to pay an additional 8CHF. The bathroom doesn't really exist. There is an outhouse style toilet and a makeshift shower area. Watch out if you like to take a shower after a long day! You need to bring your own shampoo or body wash. So, if you come unprepared you are on your own and have to venture out and buy some. One of the staff guys was incredibly unfriendly. All of my questions were met with an arrogant attitude and an unwillingness to help. Just because I decided to stay at a "budget" hotel, as he would repeatedly state, doesn't mean that I forfeited my right to be treated respectfully. It's clear to me that if I ever need to stay in Geneva again, I will stay clear of this place, even if I have to pay a little more. While the price of this IBIS does not fall into the "budget" category, the service definitely is!

Small rooms. Budget hotel in true sense. However, conveniently located near airport and opposite a nice mall. All tourist spots are easily accessible by tram/bus. You get a free day pass for Geneva transport as well!

Room Tip: All rooms are very basic. Dont expect any frills

For the price its great! Rooms are very clean. While the rooms are kind of small the space has been used very well to make it feel bigger. The shower and toilet is tiny, like being on a boat! But it's all you need and all works well.

Across the road is a big shopping center which is perfect as there are lots of food options there. About 10mins from Geneva airport, simple to get there on the number 10 bus.

Was there for one night and very satisfied
