    Well, it is an Ibis Budget, so the room is standard: small, two beds, one on top of other, maximum capacity for 3. It was clean, but the towel were extremely thin. The isolation of the shower to the room is not perfect, so it wets the floor, and there is no towel mat provided. The shower is strong, but the temperature varies slightly during bath. Shower gel is provided, but you have to ask for the hairdryer, and it is always taken, so do not count on it. I think they have one or two for all the zillions guests. The hotel provided a free pass to all public transportation in Geneva, and it is reliable, comfortable and is always on time.
    Internet is provided for free, a big plus, and I had no problem with speed or signal strength, and my room had a nice view to the mountains.
    It is ok front of a bus stop that takes you directly do the main train station (10 min) and 5 min walking to tram stop. It is in front of a big shopping mall, with Fnac and a Migros supermarket.
    Geneva is an very expensive city (all Switzerland is expensive), so I think some budget tips won't hurt. The best cost effective breakfast that I found was on this supermarket buying croissants (chocolat ones are great) , yogurt that already that comes with cereal, fruits and juice, all comes to around 5 CHF (swiss francs) per person. For comparison purposes, one croissant on the train station is 3 Chf. I take all of this to eat in the train during my daily journey to some Switzerland small town, as I bought the Swiss Pass (strongly recommended).

    The hotel was ideally located for the Motor Show at Palexpo which was the reason for the visit; only a 25min walk away from the Arena or as we found, a short travel via tram. This was a first time visit for us to Geneva so didn't know what to expect. We booked the hotel through Hotels.com. We found the hotel receptionist English speaking and very helpful and polite. We didn't know what to expect from the hotel really but we should comment on the very high standard of cleanliness. It looked as though the hotel had been very recently refurbished.
    The hotel and room was spotless throughout. I should mention that the room was very basic. There were no tea/coffee making facilities which would have been useful. However, I am not complaining as the room was exactly as described. This fullfilled our requirements perfectly in every other way. Also, we had a very nice surprise on arrival to find that free travel tickets had been included for the buses/trams.
    The continental breakfast was very good and again set in nice clean surroundings.
    We would certainly choose this hotel again when we plan to return next year.

    This is a very well-located hotel just five stops (5 minutes) on the No.10 bus from Geneva airport. (Make sure you get your free ticket in the airport terminal, because you can't buy one on the bus.) The hotel is just 2 minutes' walk from the bus stop and buses run every 10 minutes starting at 4:55 a.m.

    The reception staff were very friendly and efficient. The clean, modern, functional room included fibreglass shower and WC cubicles about the size of an aeroplane toilet. There was a double bed with a further bunk bed and ladder at right-angles above it for a third person, a small desk and flat screen TV - all within an area of around 12 sq.meters! (You'd be hard put to find space on the floor to open 3 large suitcases.) The price included free WiFi in the bedroom but there was no telephone. (Who needs one these days?) We didn't hear any aircraft noise but an occasional noisy motorbike. Unfortunately, we left too early in the morning to sample the breakfast.

    The hotel is good if you need a bed for the night close to the airport, but we paid 180 CHF, which is not cheap for basic accommodation. However, nothing is cheap in Switzerland! I'd stay there again.

    Stayed in Etap Hotel in October 2009 for 9 days. There were ITU Telecom World held in Palexpo. And youths from over 150 countries were sponsored by ITU, UN to attend the youth forum. All representatives stayed in this hotel.

    Breakfast was nice. There are a lot of cow miniatures.The elevator is too small to accommodate all of us. Rooms were okay, double bed with bunk on top. Separate toilet. Bathroom is small.

    Transports are easy. Near to Balexert and cinema. Very near to airport.
