I stayed here for four nights for a work event in Geneva. This was the only 'hotel' we could find in Geneva for under 1000 francs per night during the time period. I think our sponsor paid about 150 CHF, certainly not a good deal for this place, although I'm not sure any price would make it a good deal! haha.
As mentioned, you must check in around the corner at the Novotel hotel, where even they raise their eyebrows when you mention you are staying at the residence. The door to the residence is flanked by the employees from the Novotel on smoke break and prostitutes on the corner.
The room reminded me of a large dorm room at university. Relatively clean, basic and cement. There is free wifi which was very good. I was quite happy that it was just me there - I would not want to bring my family to this place.
Although you are in the 'red light district' of Geneva, it is hardly rough compared to other cities in the world. I never felt unsafe, although it certainly was loud! Most nights, and I wasn't there for a weekend, the noise went until about 4 in the morning. You will want to be on a high floor for sure.
Please see attached photo for a picture of my room and the view outside. I was on the fifth floor, there is only one tiny elevator that did get stuck one day that I was there and I quit taking it after that!
All in all, a survivable experience if you are really stuck for a place. Was ok for me since I wasn't paying out of pocket and was not in my room too often.
