This hotel is fine. It's centrally located, the rooms are of a good size and are clean. So why 2 stars then? Possibly I was unfortunate but the TV in the room didn't work, the shower is a trickle and one where if the next door room is using water at the same time goes painfully hot or cold! Breakfast...

Lovely little hotel. Loads of attention paid to detail - nice mahogany flooring, sumptuous carpeting, bright, great staff. All around great hotel EXCEPT for the pillows which can generously described as formless, useless, & wholly unfit for purpose. I swear the person that selected them sleeps upside down hanging from the ceiling. On that basis, despite its great aesthetic -...

Lets break down the good and bad points of this hotel. The good, the rooms are well decorated, they come with a minibar, and have air-conditioning (not the best). The bad, they give you only one towel for a single (I've confirmed this is there policy, never seen this!), the hotel is one block from a bad area with drug...

Hotel was lovely and clean, friendly staff. Bed was extremely comfortable. Parking is available at an extra charge but as the hotel represents good value for money in Geneva this was acceptable. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment. But would stay here again, only slight down side is the area is not the best for walking alone at night...

This hotel is close to the Central Station (Cornavin), it´s 5 minutes walk, so it´s very handy if you´re coming from the airport since the airport is only a stop away from the Cornavin. The lake is also a close by, maybe 10 minutes walking and you´re already there. As what seems to be the norm in Geneva, hotels give...

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night whilst visiting the motor show. Comfortable and clean. The only negative is the very small bar area which, when returning from dinner at 11pm, we were told was too late for a drink!

Good base for either a stopover or a few days sightseeing in Geneva. The room was very comfortable, nice bed and bathroom with tea/coffee making facilities. There is an additional charge for breakfast but we left the hotel early to catch our flight and cannot comment. The hotel is situated close to the main train station and the range of...

The hotel is tidy, clean and organized. The staff is courteous and friendly even though late at night. Good location, walking distance from the train station. Near to some bars, although not the best crowd. Will definitely stay there again.
