If you are on a budget, don't come to Geneva! However, sometimes we are forced to. Hotel des Tourelles is a good option. Very reasonably priced, by Geneva standards. The least expensive rooms have the shower and toilet in the hall, other have them in the room. Breakfast is nothing to brag about, but adequate. Everything is spotlessly clean and...

The thing I like about such hotels is that it make me feel a resident of the city. The hotel rooms are mixed with the residents ones'. The location is good - 10 min walk from the central station (1 tram stop) and from the lake. Staff polite and helpful. The room was with nice river view, quite big and...

The Staff is always very friendly and helpful. It is in a quiet area but close to the train station and the Paquis. Some rooms have a nice view on the river. The rooms are charming and simple. Hardwood floor, good bathroom (and books on every floor).

Excellent, central hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Room overlooked the river/lake and was spotlessly clean. Good facilities, including free wi-fi. Very close to all transport links. Well recommended.

I chose Hotel des Tourelles based mainly on the beautiful exterior (and Trip Adviser of course). It is a classic building set in a perfect location: about 8 minutes walk from the main station (just turn right out of the station and follow Boulevard James Fazy to the river) and just 5 minutes walk along the river to the Bel...

We had two nights in this hotel on a weekend break to see James Taylor. As other reviewers have noted most eloquently one is able to listen quite accurately to others guests habits, both good & bad, through the specialised construction materials that make up the walls. We had room 11 which was quite comfortable, bright & sunny with a...

I stayed here for 4 nights and felt like home. The view from my room was Mont Blanc with its snow, so fabolous! This hotel is not far from Isaac Mercier Tram Halte and Italian food are placed around. You can walk around the lake behind this place if the weather is friendly :)

I was booked into this hotel by someone who booked my business travels. If you look at some of the other reviews you will have grasped the positive aspects of this hotel. Location: excellent for railway station/airport access, overlooking the Rhone, staff super-friendly and helpful, clean. Breakfast is, well, *very* basic, but it does the trick. I had wifi included...

Stayed for three nights at this hotel and found it clean and comfortable. The exterior of the building looks rather shabby but the hotel has a great location, overlooking the Rhone and with easy access to the main rail station and also trams. The room was clean and very spacious with a lovely bay window area that had great views...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this hotel and we must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The location of Des Tourelles is great. Shopping street and railway station were close, many tram and bus lines going close. Room was spacey and the room we got had a view to the river, which is sunny...
