Excellent central location if arriving in Geneva by train or by air. At the airport get the free 40 minute public transport ticket just before you walk out of baggage claim. All the trains leaving the airport train station stop in Geneva central station (Cornavin). the hotel is just behind the station. The hotel has a decent restaurant and the...

On this April 13, 2017, I received abusive treatment by the front desk at this hotel. When I was not satisfied with the room after checking -in, I was denied my money back which I had paid cash at check-in. I had provided a credit card, but informed them I wanted to pay cash at check-out. They asked me to...

Le Monbrillant is an unusual hotel. The reception is in a bar or restaurant area and the rooms are accessed by a door around the corner. The rooms are large and contain a kitchen. There was a table but not very good for working with a laptop. The entrance way and in general the décor has seen better days. Being...

The hotel is well-placed and functional. Right next to the station, but well-insulated so not troubled by the noise. Room was comfortable, although the bathroom plumbing needed some attention. Good breakfast buffet. It's the sort of hotel you go to for accommodation and nothing else. A bit on the expensive side, but that's Geneva prices, I suppose.

This is right behind the railway station, which means you hear announcements and trains on a morning. However it also means the location is absolutely brilliant and all the trams and buses go from almost the hotel doorstep. The railway station contains very good coffee and food takeaways, convenience shops etc at good prices (for Geneva) so on balance it's...

If you're after a basic double room and not too fussed about the quality then this hotel is for you. Location is superb with the train station only a few steps away. The hotel also gave me a Geneva Transport card for the duration of my stay, which allowed me to wonder through Geneva using their transport system free of...

VERY close to the train station, but my room was quiet. My room was a suite with a better than average kitchenette. The lobby and cafe was nicer than I expected, given the price. My room could only be accessed through an outside door around the corner. A bit odd, but the room was nice.

I stayed there for one night prior to an early morning flight. Location fantastic for train travel. Friendly staff. Not cheap though. I had a single room which was quite small but had a nice balcony. The issues were - bedside lamp had no bulb in it. The mug for tea was badly cracked and stained. There was a broken...

Nice hotel right next to the train station. The room is small but sufficient for a single room. The windows, although triple-glazed give the feeling that they are not properly sealed, although the noise from the railway isn't too bad. The breakfast buffet is all you need and the restaurant serves delicious meals.
