The location is great for easy walking access to the lake and to numerous restaurants nearby on the hill. Apparently everything in Geneva is uber expensive unless your Swiss. So the room style and the basic furnishings and very small bathrooms may not be what you are used to for

Dear stealthysackboy Thank you for your positive and constructive comments. May I just add for future TripAdvisor users wanting to use Hotel Central that the most cost and time efficient way to the hotel is to take bus 10 from the airport which stops a few minutes walk from the hotel....stop Bel Air Cité....no need to take a taxi! Look forward to maybe seeing you again. With best regards Erik Gangsted

Pros: Location is definitely on point. Staff was nice to respond to requests and questions. Couldn’t ask for a better location. Extremely close to Downtown and Coop supermarket. About a 5 min walk to Lake Geneva as well. Cons: The price was pretty expensive for what you get.

Dear theresa J We have noted your comments and were pleased you enjoyed your stay, Yes the budget rooms are small, hence the competitive price for Geneva where everything is high cost but quality. Shame you did not ask for more pillows! People are allowed to smoke on the balconies and I am sorry that it disturbed you, Lifts are small but we have 2...we feel better than only one bigger one. Your comments on the staff have been passed on. Thank you again and With regards Erik Gangsted

You can always leave your luggage at the reception while you wander around geneva. Your room should be in the 6th floor. Best regards and see you soon Christine Gangsted Hotel Central
