Reviewed 9 June 2017

One step from train station. Half of step from Manor - a huge shopping center with superb food court. One step from the lake.
Room was very clean and comfortable. But i am not sure about summer hot period, because there is no air conditioner.
Wi-fi was not good and fast.

Room Tip: Court yard view room is very quiet

I stayed here for a night with a friend. It was about 5 minute walk from the bus station and was located in the center of Geneva. The hotel was very clean and I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a nice, clean quiet hotel to stay in Geneva.

Visiting Geneva for business I found the hotel by my friend reference. Despite lack of bathroom materials, hot water, comfortable bed and wifi connection, very clean room and gentle stuff appreciated me. Also it is 5 minutes to Gare Carnavin and 5 minutes to river. A big Manor is opposite of the hotel. Prices are quite reasonable. It is the best place to stay in Geneva for the short time. :)thanks

The plus points are, that the hotel employs lovely multi lingual staff. The breakfast and the breakfast room were lovely. Great décor, great food and a nice ambience. There is clearly at lot of money being spent in upgrading this hotel, and the bathrooms are immaculate. The hotel is 5 minutes walking distance from the railway station, and 5 minutes walking distance from the lake. Across the street is the Manor department store. Take John Lewis, Selfridges, and Harrods, combine them into a Swiss store, and you can build an image. The rooms at the front of the hotel are over a street bar, and those at the rear overlook a courtyard. That at least is the description in the write up of the hotel. The reality is, that you are overlooking a back yard. There is an abandoned bicycle which has clearly been there for years. Again, on the plus side the rooms were immaculate and the room service was exceptional. Undoubtedly, the best plus of this hotel is location. However, there is no bar, and the only food options are breakfast. There was no kettle in the room, so no cups of tea. No iron in the room, but we did discover a laundry and ironing room in the basement. Four nights cost us £560, which is double what you would pay for an equivalent UK hotel. However, it is Geneva.

Room Tip: No views, but rooms at the back of the hotel are probably quieter.

This hotel offers reasonable room rates, but is also very basic (no luxury whatsoever!).
Not very far from the Geneva Train Station. Many shops and restaurants in the area.
Ideal for a basic overnight stay as not too expensive.

This hotel was just what we wanted for a short weekend city break where the hotel supports the experience but isn't the essence of the break.
It is situated very central to the shopping areas, just a few minutes walk from the train station & 5 mins from the lake, and whilst basic, was very clean, with really friendly & helpful staff. The breakfast included in the price was a basic buffet but more than plentiful.
I would certainly recommend it if your needs were the same as ours for this trip.

The location is very central and a short walk from the station, lake and old town.
The breakfast room and breakfast are the best bits the bedroom and bathroom need attention, good value.
The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Request a newly refurbished room
