Great value of money if you on the budget. Pretty close to city centre, supermarket train station and airport bus stop.Mind public transport is free in Geneva so that's a massive bonus. Would definitely stay here again!

Very limited choice at breakfast, we were served raw eggs and there is only one small coffee machine to serve all guests. For the price we would have expected some hot food and maybe a chef not the receptionist trying to doing everything. There is also renovation work ongoing that starts at 08:00 am the hotel should make more of an effort to make this clear to customers, instead they just mention it in the small print at the bottom of the page on booking.com. Was unfortunately a bitter end to what was a really nice New Years holiday. (We will not be returning)

This is a small hotel working hard to be better! Five minutes walk from the station and very quiet at night. Big comfy bed, warm room, useless TV if you want English programmes, but it’s 3 star, so you get what you pay for! For reasonable food cost the best thing is to walk 50m up the road to the ‘Manor’ store where you can get fantastic take away food, huge selection, or use their restaurant on the top floor where everybody from Geneva seems to go for lunch! For breakfast go 50m down the road, turn in by the ‘Subway’ takeaway and along on the left side is a super cafe with bakery. Lovely fresh food and drinks. This is cheaper than using the breakfast at the hotel!

1) ı asked double bed before arriving hotel, although they confirmed double bed, they gave us 2 seperate bed next to each other so we could NOT sleep good. 2) room was very cold. Although I asked 2 times to increase room tempreture, they could NOT solve the problem. Now Im sick. 3) room lightining is not enough. entrance and working table part was dark. If u choose hotel for business, it does not fit to work in room. 4) room ground is too old, it is singing 5) rooms start from 1st floor and elevator starts from 1st floor. U have to carry ur luggages in high and narrow steps because they dont have bellboy. 6) there is no slippers in the room. After shower, in a cold room u have walk in the room without slippers.

Myself and 3 colleagues stayed here for 11 nights for work and had no indication there would be building works in the building right next door to the hotel until we arrived and saw a small notice on reception letting us know about it. We were woken up each week day to the loudest drilling on the same walls of our actual room! This drilling started at anytime between 7am! And 10am. After that there would be deliveries for the building site and continuous work. Do not stay here if you want to sleep past 7am!
