    The reception staff were exceptionally good, informative and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable.

    The breakfast spread could be better

    Staff very helfpul. Liked complimentary tea/coffee in reception. Clean. Quiet room - at back of hotel. Felt safe as a lone traveller. Not far from station.

    You get what you pay for! Geneva is expensive and this was basic 2*, but no complaints.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location was ideal for exploring the city. The hotel was kept very clean. There was a tram stop a short walk from the hotel. Our stay at the hotel included public transport tickets that could be used for the tram, train, bus and water taxi.

    The hotel is shaped like the Flatiron Building in New York City, and there are noisy streets on all sides of the hotel. We could hear traffic and people throughout the night, every night. And that was with the window closed. If we opened the window, the noise could be deafening. The walls were thin and the door had gaps at the top when closed. We could hear the person in the room next to ours run the tap and every person's footsteps in the hallway. The bed wasn't much more than a futon and very hard with flat pillows. The bathroom was very, very small with a tiny shower that was hard to move around in without hitting our elbows on the sides. It was the pre-fab type, similar to one in a travel trailer.

    This hotel was simply perfect for a first time traveler to Geneva. It was in a wonderful location, within walking distance of the train station, Old Town Geneva, tour boats, great shopping and sidewalk cafes, as well as dining from inexpensive crepes and panninis on the street to very high quality restaurants. The staff is truly warm, all speak English and don't mind doing so, the breakfast is included and is quite full with high quality food served in a nice setting. The rooms were spotless, and the service and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do it justice. The woman who runs the hotel is a treasure.

    Only minor problem one night was a club across the street that got a bit noisy around 11pm when the patrons came out to smoke. They were just talking, nothing loud, no music, so we just shut the very well insulated window and all was totally quiet in the room. The next couple of nights the window was open and we heard nothing, so this might have been a special event, wedding or the like. This was a very, very minor issue.

    Convenient location near train station. Great breakfast included in price of room.

    The area is terribly noisy and because of the single pane windows, it was impossible to sleep without ear plugs. The traffic is relentless and noisily goes on all night long. Parking is only available in a parking garage about a 10 minute walk away.

    Very freindly and helpful small hotel which was good value for money. Located in walking distance from the train station was a bonus. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good value with lots of choice.

    I didn,t like any thing in hotel de geneve ,it was very old and without any facilities like refrigrator or air conditioer in the room.breakfast was very bad.i resevered the hotel from Booked.net the money that I would pay was 438 euro,but hotel asked me 540 chf, and when I paid to euro ,they charged me 450 euro;and when gave a 500 note ;they return me only 60 CHF.my experience in hotel de geneve wasn,t good;because I felt there is a prejudice between asians and europiean,in advertisement hotel has wifi and internet free,but for wifi you should pay the money.

    The Hotel was very clean but basic. Although we had a bathroom it seems some rooms did not has there was a continual stream of people using the bathroom oposite our room during the night. Breakfast was continental which you expect in most European Countries. It was O.K. and did the job. The Reception staff where very friendly and helpful. Geneva is a very expensive city so you only get what you pay for.

    Hotel was a little basic for what I felt I had paid for the room, but Geneva is a very expensive place so maybe what I paid was the going rate for this City. Being on a main road I found it very noisy.

    I enjoyed my stay. Nice and helpful staff. Stress free and pleasant atmosphere. Good location within the city center. I adored the coffee with hot milk in the morning. May be its a little noise but I guess this might be the same problem in hotels in the city and near the lake ;o).

    Air-conditioning in the breakfast room/ reception could nice, especially on hot days and when the room is crowded.

    I felt tired when I first walked from tourist information center on Rue de Mont Blank. But there is a tram station near the hotel. So, if you use trams, the hotel is located at very convenient place. Peoples working there are very nice.

    Close to train station; hotel gives complimentary transportation ticket which we used to take the train to the airport; very easy. Breakfast was good.

    Room was warm but tolerable. It would have been nice to have wireless throughout the hotel as there was a wait for the computer in the lobby.

  • Older travelers

    Staff were absolutely magnificent. Very friendly, happy and helpful. The hotel was located a short walk from the station and all the tourist attractions. The rooms were spacious and a quiet and safe area. We loved our stay there and would stay there again if we return to Geneva. Thanks for a great place to stay!

    The hotel is quite old and the room has a very small bath-room inside. The breakfast is very poor and are served to guests behind the reception.

    Very clean and nicely presented small hotel with cosy rooms that had everything you need. The staff were very nice and friendly and the complimentary breakfast was good too. We chose this place for its price and certainly it is good value in Geneva. There is a computer in the reception area if you need internet and free tea, coffee.

  • Single

    The location was excellent between the lake and the train station. The best word to describe it is 'quirky' as the dining area is next to the reception, so almost has a cafe feel to it. In a corner of this area, there is tea & coffee facilities, rather than having it in your room,and although this might seem a bit inconvenient, as a solo traveller, it was actually quite homely. All in all, I felt safe, & welcome.

    Although my room was nice enough, there was a bit of a noise from the traffic outside, but not bad enough to be really upsetting. As far as value for money goes, I think that I got what I paid for, and looking at the prices of stuff in general in Geneva, its actually pretty good! What i did find a bit strange, was the fact that the reception seemed unmanned at times, even when it was supposed to be open, so not sure what was going on there. This again, was not obvious enough to be annoying.
