    Perfect (for me) location of your hotel (10 min. walk to the opera house) and your extraordinarily friendly receptionists! My compliments to them!

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Well located, friendly staff, nice graphics on the walls, good value if reserved through Internet

    I had couple of ants in the room on the 5th floor. Staffs seems to be worried when learned about it.

    Excellent welcome on arrival; helpful and courteous staff. Perfect location and comfortable rooms which were spotlesslessly clean. Only thing that could be added was a shower curtain to room 40. Would definitely rebook to same hotel!

  • 6.2
    Good

    Location, close to the train station, close to the city centre, free internet.

    The bath wasnt cleaned properly, the room was unbelieavably hot so we had to use the fan every night as there was no other option, too noisy 24 hours, poor breakfast, no parking space despite their sayings in the website.

    The hotel is situated near the lake and the big shopping house where you can find everything you need. Beakfast is very good, but the room was too small and I felt lack of space, furniture andequipment are not the newest but it is all perfectly clean.

    Staff were very helpful, nice complementary breakfast & free city travel pass.

    Could be noisy out on the street by night.

    Superb

    I need a central place to stay when attending meetings in Geneva. And this is perfect.

    I could not make the hair-dryer work. - And the cushion was not very good, - too low. Otherwise absolutely perfect.

    Very good

    the breakfast offered sufficient choice (part English, part continental) though was nearly identical each day. free wireless internet worked adequately.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    This hotel is very conveniently situated near the railway station, shops and the lake side.We had largish, comfortable rooms which were meticulously serviced. Decent continental breakfast. Obliging staff.

    One of our rooms was quite noisy with the window open, which it needed to be as it was very warm at the time [early Sept].

  • 9.2
    Superb

    No fuss, no muss kind of place - neat, tidy, nice. Small rooms - perfect for one or a few nights if you plan to spend most of your time on the town. Staff spoke several languages, were helpful with info about getting around town. Located near public transit, easy walking distance to great neighborhoods, and 5-minute walk to central train station. Very easy to get from there to airport. Wi-fi also good.

    TV was installed up near the ceiling - watching tv was a bit difficult.

    Fabulous

    Clean, neat rooms. The bathroom is a good size.

    The desk in the room is too small, positioned by a window with difficult access to a socket. For a business traveller, you need a good-size desk located near a power socket and having a shaded lamp so that you can work in your room.

    Clean and nice. Solid three stars.

    Expensive compared to average european level. Though everything in Geneva is expensive too.

    It was superb. Everything is just brand new. It is so close to the Cornavin train station and the shopping mall Manor. Although for one night i enjoyed my stay a lot.
