The place is right outside of the train station and shops, close to Starbucks, grocery store, and a short walking distance to the lake. The room design is modern and efficient. I booked a smaller room for one person but was offered a regular room that sleeps two. It's actually quite spacious. The staff helped out printing out my boarding...

Nice modern hotel, very close to the station (1 minute walking), public transport and to the city center. Receptionists were all very kind and professional. Room was very clean, comfortable, quiet. Good sleeping experience. Haven't tried the breakfast, but the was a (brand new) kettle with teas and coffees in the room. Maybe the A/C fan was a bit too...

It's clean and the service is good. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but then two single beds pushed together never is. I only stayed here one night but I slept ok and the location is great I picked it because it was the cheapest option but if the various station hotels I've stayed in this is one of the...

There is nothing wrong with this hotel. It deserves its 3 stars. It is clean and well appointed just a bit on the small side. The only gripe I really had was the lighting. In the bathroom area it wasn't suitable for applying makeup and if you turned the light on in the bathroom the bedroom lights came on as...

Just came back from 2 nights in Geneva and stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is 5 out of 5. Right outside the main train station and walking distance to almost anywhere in Geneva. We didn't need to use public transport at any time during our two day stay there. This is where the compliments end. We booked a...

I was expecting something better given the positive feedback on here. The only redeeming feature was that the staff allowed me an early check in so I could prepare for a business meeting, otherwise this would be a solid 2. I'm only 26 and I've woken up this morning with a sore back from the awful (single) mattress. The one...

Not much of a lobby, but adequate. The check-in was quick and professional. The rooms were small, but immaculate. Room service was good. The A/C was definitely subpar, so if you go in the summer, be aware that daytime cooling is an issue. At night, just open the windows. Location is very convenient to the lake and old town. Lots...

Located within walking distance from most attractions in Geneva and from the train station. Quick check in, friendly and helpful staff. The room itself can be better, but it got everything you need to enjoy your stay in this beautiful city. We were also given 2 free transport passes valid for 3 days from check in which can be used...

The rooms were on the small side, to be expected from this area of Switzerland. The hotel staff were great and were able to store a bottle of champagne for us in their fridge while we were out on the town for the evening.

I stayed at Cristal for a few days in September 2016. I took a high speed train to Geneva from Zurich and was pleased to find that the hotel was just a few minutes walk from the train station on a quiet side street. My check in experience was smooth and welcoming, and my room simple and compact, but definitely...

“The only thing I would mention is that not all adapters will fit in the socket due to the way they are fitted in the wall. You may want to take a couple of different adapters.”
