Reviewed 26 February 2012

A good base for a solo traveller using hotel as a base for travel by train to Normandy from Saint Lazare station. Stayed for two nights, a Monday and a Thursday. The first room was not that great (the website does not depict the reality) but the second was better. Great power shower and clean. Trouble getting to sleep both nights as it was so hot despite turning the radiator off. It was also quite noisy, you could hear flushes and people talking on reception well into the night. Apart from that, reception was handy and it was only a place to sleep so all in all an OK stay.

Unfortunately, we took a room here on the last day of a 3 day trip in desperation, due to a bad experience in another hotel which we had to leave if we wanted a refund.

This hotel turned out to be even worse than the previous one as on the surface it was ok for a budget, very no frills hotel, but the carpet in the room had food stains on, as I said we were desperate and only had a few hours left to visit the rest of Paris, and when we returned from the Tour Eiffel late at night the room was very humid and there were disgusting quite large silverfish insects crawling on the carpet!

I hate insects, particularly these ones, and slept extremely badly and found another silverfish the next day in the bathroom, and was scared to even walk on the carpet, it's the worst holiday I've ever had and I felt really compelled to write reviews on here for both hotels, to try and prevent anyone having the same experience.

I have visited Paris several times as most of my family are from one of the suburbs there so I've never stayed in a hotel there before and this hotel, along with the previous one ruined what was supposed to be a romantic trip :-( Please don't bother with this hotel!

Stayed: June 2011, travelled as a couple

Visited Paris to see last stage of Tour de France. Hotel was good value for the money we payed. Rooms small but adequate, very clean and made up daily. The staff were attentive and helpful. The hotel is in a good position for visiting the sights.

I Stayed at Hotel de Geneve for 2 nights and I was pleasantly surprised at how close it was to everything. We could go out all day sight seeing and not have to bother with the metro unless we were really tired.

The rooms were ok, very clean and met my expectations of a hotel room in Paris. The guy at the front door was really helpful even if I didn't speak much french he still tried his best to explain the buses to take etc.

Saint Lazare and the surrounding areas can be a bit scary if you aren't used to it but nothing out of the ordinary. I'd recommend younger, less experienced travelers to walk around late at night only if you are with someone you know and trust ...the usual.

This Hotel is located close to the Saint Lazare Train Station in Paris. For Paris, it is a very good value. The only "glitch" is that the shower is tiny. (not that you should expect over-sized anything in Paris).
Staff is very Helpful, the location is good, The rooms are clean, surprising quite (you can ask for a quite room),the prices are very good.
The top floor (6th) is the quitest, although dealing with lots of baggage in the typical small elevator can be taughting after a busy day. The lower floors are easier to access, however sometimes other guests can be rather loud when going through.
The TVs only get French TV, but then again, we didnt go there to watch TV (although catching the news while getting ready to go in the morning could have been a "nice to have"..
I wouldnt recommend the hotel breakfast, but with so many options nearby it is not a problem.
