After reading reviews, I knew that I shouldn't expect much, but even so, I was shocked. THERE IS NO A/C!!! With the heat wave in Europe right now, it is downright miserable at all hours. The hotel provided 2 fans, but they're not enough to make a difference in this stifling heat. I am traveling with my husband and children...

I had read mainly negative reviews but booked because of location and price. Very pleasantly surprised about the cleanliness, courtesy of staff, size of room and overall service. After Pax I had been booked into and stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels in Zurich and Como for the following 3 weeks. Yet I valued Pax equal in overall quality...

Hotel management stated that I could make a different reservation and pay for an additional night meaning I would pay for two nights and...

I found this hotel very basic but nevertheless pleasant. The staff was very friendly and the location good. The main problem for me was the sleep quality, as the mattress was extremely uncomfortable and the hallway got very noisy early in the morning.

Not a hotel in my book. Firstly were not warned that the entire front facade of the hotel is covered for reconstruction. Poor outdated rooms and terribly uncomfortable beds (folding cots ?). Breakfast bis very basic. Reception staff though helpful. But be warned that during check out, the hotel refuses the prebooked confirmation rates. They say their rates change everyday...

I went to this hotel in the summer vacancy with the family (two parents with two kids 7 and 5). The hotel is medium according to the quality of the interior design, little bit old fashioned. The reception man was gentil when I asked him about a portable charger, he gave it to me during my stay with no extra...

I stayed here with my daughters for a half term break, the hotel was cheap for the area and we had read previous reviews that said the building was undergoing some renovation and had scaffold up, also about the tired furniture & hotel needing some paint! We arrived and found all of this to be true, which we were fine...

Stayed here for 2 nights in February and would say 'it is what it is' it's not great, but it's good location wise and the staff are friendly. There was some scaffolding up when we stayed due to renovations so it didn't look good from the outside but at least they are working on updating it :) Location: Situated only...

The hotel is in a quite area not far from city center or lake Geneva. There is a nearby tram and bus stops . The rooms are of average size but the room furniture is exhausted and outdated.

When we were finding the hotel from station, which is good that there's a road sign to show us the way to the hotel. The room looks really old, but its still nice to have a street view balcony. The toilet is small, just like toilet in the train. The male stuff in the reception is really helpful and friendly....

“Being an old building,all rooms differ in size and shape. Best is to view the room prior check in.”

“My room gave onto a street with lots of traffic : very noisy early morning and late into the evening. An inside room - looking onto the inner courtyard - would have been better.”
