Good hotel, nice matress and friendly staff. I checked in really late and they made some good efforts to make it happen the best way. Some negative points are the fact that most of the staff doesn´t speak English very well and this hotel is a bit far from city center.

This hotel is OK situated if you're not keen on going into Geneva, also convenient for the highway. The hotel offers free public transport card and the bus to down town Geneva stops 10 m from the hotel door. The ride takes about 20 mins so it is very convenient.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With 32 rooms and junior suites, the Hotel des Horlogers was entirely renovated in 2008 to resemble a small museum reflecting the long history of watch-making in Switzerland. The interior design plays on the theme of watch-making, allowing you to discover and admire a collection of over 250 tools dating back to the 18th and 19th century. All the rooms benefit from quality bedding, a minibar, complimentary tea and a coffee, free Wi-Fi and an LCD television set with a wide selection of international channels. Breakfast is served in the form of a cold buffet, and the hotel has a garden graced by a beautiful weeping willow. Located in the centre of Plan-les-Ouates, the building is less than 3 minutes away from the main Swiss watch-making district and the Geneva stadium. The Geneva International Airport and Geneva Palexpo are a 10-minute car ride away; the city centre and lake are 15 minutes away and accessible by public transportation (bus and tram). A large public park and numerous shops surround the hotel, and a variety of restaurants can be found nearby.  Parking is available on “route des Chevaliers de Malte”, and a complimentary public transportation card will be given to you upon arrival. ... more   less
