Located across from the train station with lots of places to ear nearby. The rooms are old but clean and comfortable. Staff are helpful and breakfast is good enough. A big downside is the exceptionally slow wifi connection. By Geneva standards this is a bargain.

I was in Geneva on this trip for nearly two weeks. I have stayed at nearly 10 other locations in Geneva over the last 15 years so have a good feel for the town. I made a last minute reservation at a very busy time so was glad to get a decently priced hotel. I dreaded the noise, which I...

I had just one night in Geneva, and needed an inexpensive hotel not far from the bus station, as I had an early one to catch next morning. I think that from my research Les Arcades was the best choice, and now from experience it certainly wasn't a bad one. It's located literally across the street from the rail station,...

Basic but very functional hotel managed by a Chinese family. Pros: - Just in front of the train station - Comfortable beds and pillows - Good breakfast. Nespresso machine, fresh bread and fruits. - Free WiFi that works well Cons - Dated furniture - Little privacy as lobby and breakfast room is just in the middle of the corridor where...

Had one night at this hotel. Opposite the station. Everyone very friendly and helpful.Nice to have a bath as well as a shower. Breakfast okay. Very hot and humid when I was there. Had to have windows closed as noisy (although windows sealed this out very effectively). Fan helped although room rather airless

This hotel makes women feel at home. The manager has a very good taste and decorated rooms and commun spaces in a very nice way. All is good in this hotel, staff very helpful and specially the choice of fruits for breakfast very wide. The hotel should get at least 3 stars, Highly recommended:

I am a Muslim and I also stayed in Les Arcades during Ramadan. I was warmly welcomed and offered to pick up what I wished for breakfast, and to get it at night when I returned. The staff is really nice and helpful. I enjoyed my stay and would say that the bad comments about this hotel, specially regarding to...

I had a night stay with my wife in the middle of July when it was terribly hot in Geneva. So when we arrived, the receptionist offered us some fresh water. The room was perfect with the price that we paid. They opened room door and turned on the fan so it was not that hot when we arrived. The...
