Less than 20 minutes by bus from heart of the city, a hotel situated in a peaceful, relaxed area, small block of flats around, abundant green areas in the vicinity of the place.. The hotel is extremely clean, thematic kind of place in the sense that it displays old Swiss watches mechanisms , while rooms do not hold numbers, but...

We recently had our tour from 2 nights in Paris and 1 night in Geneva. Coming from a not so good hotel in Paris, arriving at Hotel Des Horlogers were like a bed of roses from bed of thorns in Paris. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Room is far more than what we expect for a 3-star hotel....

I selected this hotel because it is just ten minutes drive by highway to the exhibition center. Only when I was there I found out the village is the main seat of some of the top brands of watches. Inside the hotel the displays of the "horlogers" tools and some artistic compositions made of watches parts are just amazing. The...

My office booked this hotel for me. It's not huge, has an interesting display in reception and also friendly multi-lingual staff. However if you go here avoid rooms on the road-facing side of the hotel. I had two dreadful nights of sleep. A 2am thumping car stereo for 15 minutes, numerous scooters throughout the night. Breakfast is fine, wifi fast...

Aside from the elegant décor and friendly receptionists this hotel, it should be avoided. Situated in Plan les Oates (Geneva's business district), it is 'somewhat' useful for a business trip; if getting the office on foot is the single, and top priority. The only thing that could deter your attention from the noise and luminosity of the street (something that...

We decided to stay at Des Horlogers after looking at other Central Geneva hotels and noticing how expensive they were. Although this is a way out, there is a bus stop next door and it is a 10-15 minute bus ride directly into the centre, even better, the hotel gives you free public transport vouchers. I think you'll be pleased...

Despite being well out the centre of Geneva there was no problem with public transport to and from, the room was comfortable and well equipped. The Breakfast Buffet was well stocked although a tad expensive for my liking.

Nice hotel, reasonable price, decent breakfast, good service BUT the rooms on the top floor have recessed ceilings (I had a corner room) and are TOO HOT in the night when it was 22C during the day. You can open the window, but then you get all the street noise. One particular positive for me is that although there was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With 32 rooms and junior suites, the Hotel des Horlogers was entirely renovated in 2008 to resemble a small museum reflecting the long history of watch-making in Switzerland. The interior design plays on the theme of watch-making, allowing you to discover and admire a collection of over 250 tools dating back to the 18th and 19th century. All the rooms benefit from quality bedding, a minibar, complimentary tea and a coffee, free Wi-Fi and an LCD television set with a wide selection of international channels. Breakfast is served in the form of a cold buffet, and the hotel has a garden graced by a beautiful weeping willow. Located in the centre of Plan-les-Ouates, the building is less than 3 minutes away from the main Swiss watch-making district and the Geneva stadium. The Geneva International Airport and Geneva Palexpo are a 10-minute car ride away; the city centre and lake are 15 minutes away and accessible by public transportation (bus and tram). A large public park and numerous shops surround the hotel, and a variety of restaurants can be found nearby.  Parking is available on “route des Chevaliers de Malte”, and a complimentary public transportation card will be given to you upon arrival. ... more   less
