If you're after a basic double room and not too fussed about the quality then this hotel is for you. Location is superb with the train station only a few steps away. The hotel also gave me a Geneva Transport card for the duration of my stay, which allowed me to wonder through Geneva using their transport system free of...

VERY close to the train station, but my room was quiet. My room was a suite with a better than average kitchenette. The lobby and cafe was nicer than I expected, given the price. My room could only be accessed through an outside door around the corner. A bit odd, but the room was nice.

I stayed there for one night prior to an early morning flight. Location fantastic for train travel. Friendly staff. Not cheap though. I had a single room which was quite small but had a nice balcony. The issues were - bedside lamp had no bulb in it. The mug for tea was badly cracked and stained. There was a broken...

Nice hotel right next to the train station. The room is small but sufficient for a single room. The windows, although triple-glazed give the feeling that they are not properly sealed, although the noise from the railway isn't too bad. The breakfast buffet is all you need and the restaurant serves delicious meals.

This hotel is tight next to the main station in Place Cornavin but positioned to the rear. Great views over the station and there are some good rooms here. Mine was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Bar is pleasant enough and breakfast typically European minimalist in style but exactly what you'd expect. There are no "bargain" hotels in Geneva...

Stayed here for 4 nights for work. I was shocked when I saw my single room as it reminded me of student accommodation with a single bed and a metal desk and a poster on the wall (not even in a frame). However once I got used to it I was happy as it was quiet (my room faced the...

I really wish TripAdvisor would allow half-stars, because I really want to give this one 3.5 stars. But I'm going to go with 3 in that I think, for the price point, this is an average hotel (in Geneva, which is overall very expensive, this may be considered a value hotel). The highlight of the Montbrillant is that it is...

This is my second visit to the montbrillant - 3 year gap between visits. I was more impressed this time, with my room which was in the main building. The bed was comfortable and the room well appointed. The two major downsides were the bathroom, which is dated.... in Geneva finding an up to date bathroom in a hotel seem...

Small yet neat and very conveniently located next to the the train station. The room was compact, the interiors were pretty good. Would recommend staying here on your next visit to the beautiful city of geneva.

It is right next to the rail station and is convenient if changing from the Swiss side to the French side. The bar is quirky and comfortable. To use the toilet you have to have the code and tap it into the door handle. The wine was good, but sadly I did not have time to eat.
