I stayed here when I visited Geneva for business. The hotel was clean, breakfast was good. There is a starbucks close by and the lake across the street. The staff at the hotel were friendly. The grocery store within walking distance.

Far too expensive for what it has to offer. The hotel is centrally located, clean and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately there is no bar in the lobby, no possibiltiy to drink something - nethertheless someone is playing piano every evening (no sauna or fitness as well). The rooms are very small, the bathromm and toilet are extremely minuscule. Depending...

“Perfecto para pasar el fin de año y pasear por Ginebra.” Viajando con dos niños. Habitación doble muy amplia y segunda habitación justo contigua. Hotel no muy grande en número de habitaciones, muy cómodas y equipadas, y de gran calidad. Excelente emplazamiento para visitar tanto el Centro, como el casco antiguo, o el lago, e incluso la sede de la...

Oh dear. What good things can I say about this gloomy, drab and rather depressing hotel? Well it is cheap but you get what you pay for . That means a small, sparse bedroom and a tiny bathroom. Comfy bed, nice sheets, clean room. That's about it really.

Near all the places on both sides of the lake and the train station. Welcoming staff. Single rooms are relatively small. But it's location is of an added value. Waking distance to English garden and train station.

Great location for access to best of Geneva on both sides of the river. Once you check in, you get into a tiny elevator to go up to rooms. Two people and two bags and you have to breath in. Gives an indication of size of what's to come. Room was fine but shower was so small that every move...

Very good hotel. Unfortunately the bathroom is really small but for just one night it is okay. The room is also rather small but also okay. What i never understand is that the breakfast is not included in the price.... Nice and friendly people. Good food in the restaurant.
