Small, clean, quiet hotel with helpful staff. Breakfast served in a small dining area behind the reception but it was more than adequate with fruit, cold meats, cheeses, yogurts, tea and coffee - would stay here again. Value for money and good location.

I spent two nights in Des Tourelles with my girlfriend. The most important advantages of that place are: the location (let's say it's next door to Mandarin Oriental, with great view to the river from rooms) and also the reasonable prices, as for Geneve. Easily accessible from de Seujet parking (40 CHF a day). The breakfast is rather basic. Wi-Fi...

Good location, safe, close to train Station, a stones throw away from old city...it was perfect for my short visit. Has English tv chanels and friendly staff. Tends to get noisy if you are allocated in a room by the busy road though.

Small family run hotel, not luxury, basic services, but in a great location. The hotel is not easy to find as its part of a shared block along with a dentist and a dance school etc. The hotel shares a common access. Although the reception is located on this floor you have to go up some steep steps. The guest...

My partner and I stayed at Des Tourelles for a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The hotel is in an excellent location and there's great views of Le Rhone, especially when the restaurants and bars are lit up at night. The only issue we had was that our room was quite noisy during the night due...

We came here on our honeymoon a year ago and really enjoyed the hotel. It wasn't so cheap but all of Geneva is really expensive. Anyway, comparing to other hotels in Geneva it was a great deal. The room is designed very nice with a nice view to the river. We also enjoyed the breakfast and loved the location. We...

Cordial and efficient staff, giving all the information needed and solving all the questions. Room was clean and comfortable, with a beautiful terrace over the Rhône. Good breakfast and wifi. The wooden floor squeaks a little, but it is expected as the building is old.

Easy walk from the main train station, our 1 night stay in a double room was extremely good. Our room was quite large, old fashioned styling but well kept and clean, along with the bathroom. We had a gorgeous river view, was great location to walk around. Since we had very early train in morning, the reception staff were very...

If you are on a budget, don't come to Geneva! However, sometimes we are forced to. Hotel des Tourelles is a good option. Very reasonably priced, by Geneva standards. The least expensive rooms have the shower and toilet in the hall, other have them in the room. Breakfast is nothing to brag about, but adequate. Everything is spotlessly clean and...

The thing I like about such hotels is that it make me feel a resident of the city. The hotel rooms are mixed with the residents ones'. The location is good - 10 min walk from the central station (1 tram stop) and from the lake. Staff polite and helpful. The room was with nice river view, quite big and...
