Reviewed 25 November 2017 via mobile

This hotel was advertised as a 4 star on booking.com when I booked it but this really wasnt the case. The pictures were misleading and I wouldnt stay here again. Positives...it was clean and the food was okay. Negatives...the bed was very very low down and small. We had one pillow and 2 really flat pillows that were more like pillow cases only between the 2 of us and the AC didnt work. There were no tea/coffee making facilities which I would of expected in a 4 star hotel but perhaps this is a Geneva thing and british tv chanels were limited. The staff were hit and miss and often seemed very disinterested. Breakfast was a shambles...we went down to plenty of available tables but all were used and hadnt been cleaned and reset. We had to wait til a member of staff finally appeared to clear one for us. She gave us coffee cups but no cutlery and left the other tables. This was 8am so more people were making their way down for breakfast. There was then no milk, hot water, eggs, orange juice so that took a good 20 mins to get them replenished and one guy litera

Again from past reviews I was worried what to expect however on arrival the staff was friendly and help full. Even got a room upgrade simply because we were from South Africa.
The buffet breakfast was good with all the normal hotel selections.
We were there for 3 days on a business trip and the hotel was even happy to extend out check out due to a delayed meeting without charging us.

Well located hotel near the old town and close to a tram line. Howerver, more a 2 star than a 4 star: no A/C at beginning of October; we had to change room (no extra charge); not a real restaurant; breakfast at 26 CHF is far too expensive.

Room Tip: make sure there is A/C working in the room

Reading past reviews, I was quite petrified that my host booked this hotel. Only with the assurance that I can change after 1 night, I treaded into the hotel with trepidation.
So with a much lowered expectations, the hotel is fine overall.
The room, bed is small, but liveable. Wifi is free and works fine. Request for iron and board was acceded. Breakfast is the simple fare everyday, but generally better than other 3 star hotels in Geneva. Front desk service is mixed ... catch them while they are in good mood, and you are well served. Stay away when their mood are foul.
Overall, Geneva hotels are typically expensive, so with a much lowered expectations, Hotel Century is okay, and I would stay there again.

i stayed in century hotel for 3 days, business trip. the office reserved for me in this hote. before going i read the recent reviews and i was disappointed and afraid before i reached the hotel. when we reached there, we checked in (3 of us) in 5 minutes. rooms are small but so clean. breakfast was not of a 4 star hotel variety. but the quality is really good and you can nearly find all what you are looking for. "not all of it". nice coffee. prices were a bit high. location is really the best.
