Clean and well-localized hotel, close to the Gare Cornavin and all trains/buses/metro. The breakfast is quite good and the staff is friendly. Another guest complained about his bed, that were extremely thin and improvised. Our was very confortable though. The building is very old, but reasonably clean and organized. A decent spot in the heart of Geneva.

Basic decor - don't expect plush carpets and lots of pillows, free shampoo or sixteen towels in the bathroom. Expect older style decor, one pillow, hard wearing thin pile carpets, and one towel etc. This hotel does have a lot going for it however: - Reasonable price for Geveva - Free WiFi - Pleasant staff - Descent breakfast will set...

Small decent hotel situated 200m from train station and main tram lines. Few rooms. Small spartan rooms. Minimum of furniture. Average breakfast in a small room. Personnel nice and friendly. Reasonable price for Geneva. Ask for internal rooms.

This hotel has very tiny dining room which cannot fit all the guests. Do if you are late you can end up waiting in the corridor for other guests to free up the table. So either get up early or have your breakfast elsewhere. Apart of this issue and useless comment on outrageous Geneva prices we liked this place. It's... More

There are lots of mid-range rather small and pokey hotels near the station in Geneva. Very central, old town houses converted into small hotels with cramped lifts, a small communal space for breakfst, and simple facilities. In most other towns they would be considered over-priced but Geneva has lots of visitors and it is a sellers market. The Lido is... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my family on our weekend trip to Geneva. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great (American standards), average (Swiss standards)! The 3 person room was really big, and I found the bed to be very comfy. The location is great, central to everything you could want to see, and... More

Hotel has really very good location, just several minutes from central railway station (about 5 min) and short distance to city center (7-10 min). It's easy to find, receptionist did registration very fast and gave me transport card for free (free usage of all city transport including train or buss to airport). This is very useful, especially if you're going... More
