I stayed here for 2 nights with friens on Feb late and realize that it is no bad choice in The center of Geneva. This is a 2 star hotel but budget is not expensive. We have free buffet breakfast with various energy, free Internet, free transport ticket to visit Geneva, free store room. The staff are very young, helpful,...

Have stayed here several times. Rooms have all the basics and the decor is fine. I found the those off the main dining room (agree with comments on the slightly strange layout) to be nicer than the others, but see that some people have had issues with noise in that part of the hotel. The atmosphere in the dining room...

The rooms are sparkling clean, but as others have mentioned, the layout is odd. Rooms open directly on to the lobby, so expect to hear talking, rattling dishes, etc. The front desk person had a cough, so guess what all the customers listened to all night? Wifi is free, but I could only connect in the lobby, not my room.

Geneva is extremely expensive so a budget hotel like this one opposite Cornavin Station is worth considering. The staff are fairly pleasant and the breakfast was reasonable. The room was clean and comfortable and the decor was nice. The only problem is that most of the rooms are arranged around the breakfast area and reception desk. Having stayed there before,...

I'm always satisfied when I stay at Les Arcades. The service is very good, the hotel is well located for someone who travels for business, in front of the Cornavin station. I like very much the breakfast served there and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Pour notre voyage de fin d'année, nous avons opté pour cette hôtel pour notre escapade a Genève. Bien que l'hôtel est juste en face de la gare, il est parfaitement insonorisé. Nous avons énormément apprécié l'accueil et la disponibilité des employés. Merci Je confirme,donc que l'emplacement de l'hôtel est énorme atout. Pour les voyageurs qui cherchent un hotel familiale, celui-ci...

Based on reviews I have read on this web-site and others, I have booked three nights in this hotel, that offered best prices for a very expensive Geneva. This is a 2-star hotel, so you cannot expect too much. Exactly for this reason, I found it a very pleasant surprise. The rooms are not too small, it was spotless clean,...

This is an excellent hotel across the road from the main railway station in Geneva. The rooms are a good size and setup adequately for a comfortable stay in Geneva. The breakfast was very good and the staff sensational. The wifi worked satisfactorily but you needed an adapter for Switzerland that is different from France and Germany for your electrical...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend in late September 2011. After reading the reviews, I thought saving money and staying at a 2 star hotel with good reviews made a lot more sense than spending quite a lot more on a 3 star with questionable ones. It was a risk, but one that definitely paid...
