the service is very nice but the hotel good do with a total make-over. It's going back to the 80ties. Not sure if this applies for Geneva in general :) Note: Take a swiss 220V plug with you if you carry a laptop. There are no "normal EU" sockets. But you can borrow on from the reception.

The hotel ranks pretty low in Geneva hotels but isn't that bad. The room was clean the free Wi-Fi was fine and the bed was comfortable. The shower wasn't the greatest as was a shower above the bath with one of those hand held showers which always tries to shower the wall rather than the person underneath! Staff were helpful...

This hotel is a little dated but is very clean and in a central location. Rooms are a fair size and comfortable and the staff have been helpful and friendly It's a bit pricey for what it is but not too bad on the value scale

Comfortable and spacious rooms in a great location. The wifi was fast, they give you a free transportation pass for the duration of your stay, and the staff were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location. Reasonably appointed. Breakfast was basic but fresh. For the price point I would have expected a better standard in all areas of the hotel. Okay for a short trip if nothing else available. however there are better hotels for the same price in Geneva.

As I reserved the hotel I assumed it was still under the Best Western umbrella - after spending a night there I understand why it is no longer a BW. On the positive side: location is quite convenient, the room was clean, wifi was decent, the TV screen looked pretty recent and my room on the 5 had a balcony....

The location of this hotel is perfect. The bus 12 stops in front. The is a mall just crossing the street, Eaux Vives, with a big supermarket, plus you can go walking to the lake, 4 to 5 minutes. The decoration is old, but the beds are confortable. I've been twice and I really recommend it if you don't want...

I went to Genève for a short city break. Hotel was nice, clean and staff was friendly. Food was alright and they made sure everything was always at the buffet, which was nice. Room was clean, spacious,well proportioned with very comfortable bed. Decorations was a bit old fashioned, looked good tho. Bathroom was clean , shower could be better tho....

This hotel is located relatively close to the city center & the old town, everything from high end shopping area to the old town and it's magnificent small restaurant & cafes is within walking distance. Very small but cosy hotel, breakfast is basic and the rooms are very small but clean & quiet. The staff is very friendly.

Thank amirdavi

“My room was at 3nd floor; it was comfy and better looking than the one below (2nd floor, where my colleague stayed); but the wi-fi was poor at all floors.”

“Don't go to a room facing the Terraserie road, it is quite busy and noisy. There is a tram each couple of minutes at least.”
