I came as a walk in quite late, the room rate was 160 so I was expecting a nice room and hotel. Wrong. The room small, old and ugly. The bathroom from late 80s with the hairdryer which took 15 minus to dry my short hair. Towels not soft. Breakfast room is very ugly and not well organized, no staff... More

I was staying in a single room in Hotel Bernina and I am very pleased with my stay. Very polite staff, the hotel is clean and located in the city center, close to the central railway station. If I visit Geneva again, I would return to this hotel. Only issue was with noise as the wall between my room and... More

Hotel Bernina is a typical small European hotel in the center of Geneva. It is a clean hotel with a friendly atmosphere and helpful Staff. The location is ideal for visitors to Geneva. It is across the street from the main train station "Carnevin" with good train, tram and bus connections. Walking distance to Lake Geneva and Old-town. Surrounded by... More

The Bernina is an old hotel which has not been renovated for quite some time. Nevertheless, the rooms are still acceptable and are mainly clean. Therefore, for the rate which I got it that night, it was OK. The main problem is that the rooms are extremely badly soundproofed. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I'd say whether your...

Went on a weekend to Geneve with my wife. Good hotel, man behind the counter is very helpful and knows his stuff. Adequate breakfast. Only thing I would say is walls are a little thin and I could hear talking from the next door room quite loudly. Would recommend for a weekend, booked through easyjet.

When you're used to opulent and lush Asian hotels this hotel was lovely and quaint...but the room rather reminded me of student accommodation. It was certainly adequate and functional but very small as was the bathroom. There is no air-conditioning in the rooms which in the summer heat was sometimes stifling. The breakfast is quite nice and also the lift... More

Across the street from the train station. VERY convenient! Clean, comfortable, great beds, great towels, great staff. Only issue was no air-conditioning, which caused us to want the windows open... and on a Saturday night there was quite a bit of noise when the local bars closed. Still.... would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was adequate.

For a double room, I paid 105€ per night! It should have been a 3 stars hotel: it was dirty and not well equipped (no air conditioning, gloomy and also Tv did not work very well). I save the staff, which was quite polite.

The hotel is very reasonably priced for Geneva which is very expensive. We got a lovely room facing the hustle bustle of Cornavin. It's just across the railway station and the tram/bus stops which made it convenient to travel anywhere. There is a tea and coffee station near the lobby. Breakfast is good. The room was fresh and clean. No... More

The location is perfect, it is in front of the main train station and all the buses and trams and also 5 minutes walk to Lake Geneva. The continental breakfast was included and was fine. The reception managers, Semir and Rami were very helpful and had lots of suggestions for sightseeing and local restaurants. I would have liked a kettle... More
