    nice room, good service, nice breakfast and the possibility to get coffee and tea free of charge during the day

    Great

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Guests receive a free public transport card for the duration of their stay. The hotel is perfectly located between the railway station and the old town. In the hotel there was free tea and coffee at any time. The hotel is furnished with a lot of love!

    The rooms are simply furnished and the bathroom is very small. For a few overnight stays, however, the rooms fulfil their purpose.

    Very good

    The staff was very friendly. There was a good choice at breakfast. The entrance area was beautifully furnished.

    There was a slight smell of smoke in the room, the bathroom was rather narrow.

    Good value for money for the month of August.

    The bathroom consisted of a small plastic cabin. Neighbors were still running around in the corridor at midnight. Get better doors, there'll be no light or noise from the corridor!

    - Staff very nice . - free public transport ticket included in the hotel price

    - It's very noisy in the room, even at night.

    Very good

    The location is central and everything is within walking distance. It is a cheap hotel by Geneva standards.

    The breakfast room is directly at the reception and very small. Apart from that, we missed breakfast twice because it was only offered between 8 and 10 am.

    Amazingly beautiful atmosphere in the middle of the pulsating city. Breakfast good, staff friendly and helpful. More than well heated.

    Very small room.

    Very charming hotel with a wonderful room in a very central location. There's nothing missing and a really pleasant surprise considering the price!

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    A nice atmosphere, we feel almost welcomed as a family, even after not having been there for several years, since a previous stay... Proximity to Cornavin station and tram and bus lines. . Charm of a welcoming old hotel, which will not be found anywhere else (except in the neighbouring Hôtel des Tourelles, which has a slightly different but also friendly atmosphere). Yes, you can find a cheaper room in "modern" hotel chains today, and if you have to do that next time, it will be with great regret. But if it is possible, the extra few francs are well invested...

    Nothing, everything was fine.

    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.

  • 6.6
    Nice

    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.

    Perfect

    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.

    Very good

    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.
