Just came back from 2 nights in Geneva and stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is 5 out of 5. Right outside the main train station and walking distance to almost anywhere in Geneva. We didn't need to use public transport at any time during our two day stay there. This is where the compliments end. We booked a...

I was expecting something better given the positive feedback on here. The only redeeming feature was that the staff allowed me an early check in so I could prepare for a business meeting, otherwise this would be a solid 2. I'm only 26 and I've woken up this morning with a sore back from the awful (single) mattress. The one...

Not much of a lobby, but adequate. The check-in was quick and professional. The rooms were small, but immaculate. Room service was good. The A/C was definitely subpar, so if you go in the summer, be aware that daytime cooling is an issue. At night, just open the windows. Location is very convenient to the lake and old town. Lots...

Located within walking distance from most attractions in Geneva and from the train station. Quick check in, friendly and helpful staff. The room itself can be better, but it got everything you need to enjoy your stay in this beautiful city. We were also given 2 free transport passes valid for 3 days from check in which can be used...

The rooms were on the small side, to be expected from this area of Switzerland. The hotel staff were great and were able to store a bottle of champagne for us in their fridge while we were out on the town for the evening.

I stayed at Cristal for a few days in September 2016. I took a high speed train to Geneva from Zurich and was pleased to find that the hotel was just a few minutes walk from the train station on a quiet side street. My check in experience was smooth and welcoming, and my room simple and compact, but definitely...

We stayed here for one night while going to paris. The hotel is located at a very convenient location. 5 mins from tgv station and 10 minutes from jet d'eau. There are numerous restaurant at the back street, including 1 indian restaurant. The room space is very efficiently used. The rooms look modern, but the keys are old fashioned. The...

Having finished a month-long driving trip in Europe, we turned in our car in Geneva. We planned a short stay and then a train to Paris. The Hotel Cristal Design is steps from the train station but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle. Sitting next to a pedestrian street leading to the waterfront, it also enjoys a...

“The only thing I would mention is that not all adapters will fit in the socket due to the way they are fitted in the wall. You may want to take a couple of different adapters.”
