This brilliant hotel is really authentic , we loved it, we had a huge room, right at the back. Think it was #5. Big renovated bathroom. When we were there Geneva was having a heatwave and my friends who live there told me hardly anyone has a/c, hardly any hotels have a/c - it's not usually 35 degrees! So I'm...

On my way to Monaco to meet some friends, coming from Frankfurt, I decided to break up my trip and check out Geneva for a day. I will grant that my GPS not knowing the road out front is closed is not the fault of the hotel. However I really feel like this should be somehow addressed by them. I...

I stayed here just one night. Arrived with wife and kiddie circa 11pm and checked straight in. The rooms are extremely dated with no aircon. However, they are Extremely clean, spacious and have comfortable beds. The location is absolutely superb for the main station (where you get discounted parking for about €7 per day) and the Surrounding streets have very...

This hotel is right in the centre of the town, very well located. Facilities are clean and comfortable. However, in this summer the heat was unbearable, there is no air conditioning! So, if going in the summer, not the best place to be! Other than that , it is recommendable.

This hotel is in a great location. It’s a 5 minute walk from the station, which in turn is a 10 minute free ride from the airport (get a free ticket in the baggage hall and all trains go to Geneva, just get off at the first stop). There are 3 good cafes in the same street as the hotel...

Great location for seeing Geneva. Station only five minutes away. Reduced price parking for guests under the station. Friendly and helpful staff. Our only complaint was the lack of air conditioning in the hot summer but you get what you pay for.

By cool I mean temperature. As other reviewers have stated, there is no AC. I had three fans in my room, two standard fans and a ceiling fan. This doesn't do anything during the day except circulate hot air around. At night, with windows wide open, I placed one of the fans at the window to draw cooler air in....

The hotel is in need of a refurb, that said the staff couldn't be more polite and helpful. The rooms were aged but did have a very clean shower room and TV. The bad point the hotel was stupidly hot ... really really hot .... With no aircon it was really uncomfortable, the reception surplus fans but these don't really...

the location can't be beat. Steps to the main train station and steps to a shopping mall and a Starbucks for you coffee drinkers. The hotel staff is not the friendliest, especially in the evening, but it is clean and affordable. Didn't have time to try the breakfast, just stayed one night in Geneva.... 6 min train/subway to the airport....

This hotel has all the basics of a 3 star hotel and is located opposite to a big shopping mall when it has supermarket, department store, restaurants, etc. It is also 5 mins from the train station. Very convenient!
