Great location on the side of the lake and only a stroll to the fountain. But no bar. Furniture from the 70's. Minimal staff but very helpful. The sleep quality is poor. Uncomfortable mattresses and pillows. I stayed 4 nights and the room was just too small but still very expensive as is everything in Geneva.

Stopped in Geneva during this years motorcycle trip. Hotel is very well located adjacent to the lake, with great views of the fountain - before the wind picked up and the fountain was switched off ! Was lucky enough to be upgraded to a super room with great facilities - and although this hotel is a little on the pricey...

I stayed here when I visited Geneva for business. The hotel was clean, breakfast was good. There is a starbucks close by and the lake across the street. The staff at the hotel were friendly. The grocery store within walking distance.

Far too expensive for what it has to offer. The hotel is centrally located, clean and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately there is no bar in the lobby, no possibiltiy to drink something - nethertheless someone is playing piano every evening (no sauna or fitness as well). The rooms are very small, the bathromm and toilet are extremely minuscule. Depending...

Very centrally located City Hotel with ok prices for the location. Single room size on the smaller size, tiny bathroom. Great view on lake and river. Mattress not very comfortable Very clean and well kept. Free bottle of water and fruits in the room. Breakfast ok but nothing extraordinary for CHF 24 - Starbucks is just across the street Staff...

“Perfecto para pasar el fin de año y pasear por Ginebra.” Viajando con dos niños. Habitación doble muy amplia y segunda habitación justo contigua. Hotel no muy grande en número de habitaciones, muy cómodas y equipadas, y de gran calidad. Excelente emplazamiento para visitar tanto el Centro, como el casco antiguo, o el lago, e incluso la sede de la...

Booked a Top Floor Deluxe 25sq mts Room Deal @ about half price for 3 Days. Other Rooms @ 15 & 20sq mts, or breakfast was not booked so I can't write about that. Geneva is expensive, but to a seasoned traveller, the price we paid was about right. Restaurant not open (refurb). Room overlooked the Lake and the views...

Oh dear. What good things can I say about this gloomy, drab and rather depressing hotel? Well it is cheap but you get what you pay for . That means a small, sparse bedroom and a tiny bathroom. Comfy bed, nice sheets, clean room. That's about it really.

Near all the places on both sides of the lake and the train station. Welcoming staff. Single rooms are relatively small. But it's location is of an added value. Waking distance to English garden and train station.

Great location for access to best of Geneva on both sides of the river. Once you check in, you get into a tiny elevator to go up to rooms. Two people and two bags and you have to breath in. Gives an indication of size of what's to come. Room was fine but shower was so small that every move...
