Near the airport. Rooms are small, but clean and quiet. Very limited selections of food for breakfast for 12 CHF. They are also giving free travel ticket during your stay to go around Geneva. Free wifi.

We had an overnight layover at GVA so just looking for a reasonable place to spend the night. The room was clean and had everything we needed for a reasonable price. The layout is a bit quirky from a US perspective, but very functional.

There is a bus stop close to the hotel and easy access to the city. Room ok as it is a budget hotel. The floor in the room is sticky other than that staffs are friendly and helpful. Recommended hotel.

This hotel is close to the airport with a convenient #10 bus to the door. A monster shopping mall opposite, trams at the end of that mall, and a nice safe area to stroll around. Hotel itself modern, clean, quiet, the staff more than helpful and welcoming. Don't underestimate IBIS Budget - it's a great option.

As I have visited Geneva before, my tip is to take free 80 minute ticket travel ticket from the machine near the Customs exits. Just push the button for a ticket and take a map, if needed. Then walk out through customs, and head towards the Train Station to the far left of your exit. Ignore buses and taxis and... More

Ok, first off this is an Ibis Budget. So there is no point in ranting about the lack of amenities. It's a budget hotel. But that said, there are still some things you expect when staying at this class of hotel in this location. Let's start with the practical side. For example, I noticed that on the Accor website, this... More

Geneva is expensive. This hotel the price changes each day - like Easyjet so book it on a flex price and then the day before see if the pay now is a big saving (and cancel the old room). For Geneva its cheap and clean. It has a bar and restaurant - the Swiss Bistro - top tips drink beer... More

I was put in the Budget Ibis & it's a big drop in standard from standard Ibis. I would always prefer to pay the extra. The rooms are small & dark with absolutely no character or anything to recommend them. Breakfast was also a disappointment.
