    Excelsior was good for a three star. Staff were friends and helpful. Location was good. Bed and pillows were great. Had the best two night's sleep here. There's a wickedly good food hall just across the road as well. Highly recommended.

    Pros: very convenient location, cleanliness, good Wi-Fi, not very expensive. Cons: small rooms, noise from other rooms/outside, pillows too soft. Overall, it is not a bad choice for staying in Geneva, due to the excellent location primarily and secondarily due to affordable pricing.
