We read reviews before our visit, and we weren't disappointed. On looking at various other hotels across a range of budgets, we were not disappointed. The old town of Geneva has plenty of character and we felt was far better than the other side of the river. Reception was welcoming and staff are professional and helpful in all ways. Our... More

A nice and cosy restaurant in the heart of Geneva. We ordered the Fondue Chinoise which is a carpaccio of beef with different assortments such as fries, salad, mashed potatoes and sauces. You can order as much meat as you want (aka a GoGo). The waiter would ask you if you want the salad as a starter or later with... More

Rooms are modern and very nicely decorated. The breakfast buffet is small but with nice products. Very convenient to discover Geneva. Situated in a charming old building. Access by car is through narrow streets, access by foot is via a lot of steps and a step street, but it's well worth it.

I rented Les Armures hotel depending on it's rating and reviews mostly.

Located in the old city, this smaller hotel has an "old European" feel. It is extremely charming, spotlessly clean, relaxing and quiet. The furnishings and details of the physical space are quite beautiful and the bathroom is "as good as it gets." The location is excellent. Even considering Geneva prices, the breakfast is simply not commensurate with its cost. The... More

I have stayed in Les Armures twice on work trips, both times I found the rooms exquisite. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and very spacious.
