The staff in this hotel are very friendly and willing to help with anything. The rooms are very clean and quiet, so you cannot hear the noise from the street or train station. The breakfast is continental, very nice and sets you up for the day. Would definitely stay again.

This was a fantastic stay: the hotel is immediately opposite the station, with loads of trams & buses. We were warmly welcomed and nothing seemed too much trouble. Our room was clean, nicely decorated, and quiet (we were at the back). Breakfast is generous - platters of cheese, ham, smoked salmon with boiled eggs: lots of fresh fruit slices, a...

Can't fault the hotel. For the price, it was very very good value. Clean and attractive. Great location and the staff were very helpful. I had to get a credit card sent to the hotel and they were happy to let me work on my computer all day long after I'd checked out. They insisted I sat somewhere more comfortable...

This hotel is good value for money, particularly for Geneva. Our room was an acceptable size without being too small. Very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was quite modern. Breakfast was included in the price which is the exception in Geneva. Cheeses, boiled eggs, cereals, bread, fruit, yogurt and croissants provided. There was also a capsule coffee machine. Weather was unseasonably...

Excellent stay and great staff We are really surprised by this negative comment. We just checked out today and had no problem with our invoice. We made the reservation through Booking.com and were explained that the provision covering the first night was not charged and was not charged indeed. Not fair to insult such a nice staff who made our...

I booked the hotel using booking.com for two nights, they instantly charged me for one night as an insurance, when I went there at July 22nd they told me that I have to pay for 2 nights, I told them that I've been already charged with one night so I have only one night left to pay, they told me...

You have never been robbed in my hotel. Sixmultipay, the worldwide credit card company, confirmed to me once again that your provision was released and never charged. You only paid the stay and you could had received all proof of this mater through Booking.com. Owner of the hotel - D. Golay

This is a very nice hotel and I would book it again. Here is why. It is a small cosy hotel at the very centre of Geneva. No particular luxury, but with everything you may need while staying at the hotel. This of course in case you are not originally looking for luxury. Before arrival, the hotel sent to me...

Kept awake on 3 consecutive nights by noise from machine whirring and buzzing somewhere in the middle of the hotel. I'm at a loss how anyone gets a nights sleep here. Room was shabby, towels ancient - at the least the staff were friendly.

This hotel is everything I didn't expect being a veteran of Geneva hotels : friendly with big rooms, excellent service, an excellent breakfast buffet, quiet and well located. I would definately recommend any visitors to Geneva to stay here. It is not only well priced but a welcoming, well located hotel.
