Amazing how close to everything this hotel is. Right next to the train station, it's now my hotel of choice in Geneva, because it alows me to avoid the horrible traffic. It's clean, the bed was comfy, the staff is lovely. Don't expect any kind of luxury, but if you're looking for an affordable place to sleep - this is...

This is a good 2 star property in heart of Geneva. The best part about this property is rooms are bigger than European standard, bed big and comfortable. The property is 3 min walk from Central train station Cornavin. The flip side I noticed that in bathroom they don't even give enough toiletries. The one I got was non AC...

This place is great, for an inexpensive option in Geneva. Five-minute walk to the train, less than ten-minute walk to the lakefront. Located on a major street. To be clear, this is a hotel for people who aren't planning to spend a lot of time in the room, but the bed was big and reasonably comfortable, and it has a...

Great location and beautiful room was very spacious considering European standards, with many large widows so even though there was no air conditioning the room was fresh. Sleeping is a problem if you are sensitive to noise however, as the traffics and outdoor noise is quite loud all night !

I walked to this hotel after arriving in Geneva at midnight, with my luggage. Ten minutes. Old fashioned elevator and tall ceilinged rooms, large open windows, a feel of old Europe. This budget hotel has rooms on several floors so expect a few steps. WIFI.

As we were simply passing through we chose a budget hotel and I suppose that is what we got. Very basic and without character or any attractiveness. The staff were pleasant and the rooms small but clean. Would choose a different hotel next time.
