“No free Internet in rooms. Good value superior room.”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

I stayed here twice. I found Rooms were too hot and I couldn't turn the heating down had to open the window. The standard room was very standard. The superior room was much better with 2 toilets, was much larger and represented much better value. Free Internet in the lobby but not in the rooms. Also the lights are on dimmer switches, so initially I found the room dark especially getting cloths out of the wardrobe.

Reviewed 4 December 2011

I stayed here for two nights on business and found this hotel to be good for what you pay. Geneva is VERY expensive and this hotel was cheap compared to other 4 star hotels. Its in a top location on the river and has great views. The restaurant was good. Furnishings are a bit dated, reminiscent of Alm Uncle.

There are better places to stay in Geneva but if you're on a budget, you can't go wrong here.

Love this hotel! I first discovered this hotel in 1978 and have been enjoying Geneva from its central location on many trips since. The Ambassador Staff is excellent, providing good personal services. It is located in the heart of Geneva and provides very good accomodations at a very reasonable price. The rooms are cozy, clean and nicely appointed. Ask for a room overlooking the river or the quaint square with a fountain.

A hidden gem in an expensive city. Excellent location, on the lake, close to shopping and the financial district.

Spent 5 nights in the hotel at the end of July. Room was spacious with bathroom including bath and shower, tv and tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was ok and about the same price as Starbucks. Location is great just by bridge and about 10 mins walk to old town. All in all a nice hotel and good stay
