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... More

Breakfast waitresses not very kind. They are keen to leave. If you arrive at 10:27 they will not serve you...mispleasent at least. Room cleanance is good. Reception at night is very kind. All in all, excellent location is the must valuable characteristic.

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.

The hotel is on the quai des Bergues overlooking the Rhône just about where Lake Leman becomes a river again. The restaurant is of a decent level with a small terrace area for eating outside. Although this is by the road, there is not much traffic. It is a nice place for a meal in the open on a warm... More

Hotel is located right at the Lake, everything is within walking distance. very nice neighborhood!. Unfortunately my company managed to make a "special"deal with the hotel and breakfast was not included, so I cant review that, but they were serving free coffee and fruits at the lobby, which was a nice gesture. staff at the reception was always friendly and...

Compared to the competition, this hotel stands out for its reasonable rates, excellent location, and a very good restaurent. Service is efficient and rooms well appointed, some with excellent views (mine was facing the river, with an easy peak at the fountain of Lake Geneva). The restaurent specializes in fresh seafood, and prices are reasonable by Geneva standards.

Good business hotel in the centre of Geneva. About a 15 walk from the main train station or 20 minutes in a taxi from the airport. Rooms are good and there are plenty of places near by to eat or drink. If you cross the foot bridge In front of the hotel there is a good bar just on the... More

Got a reasonable deal via Expedia and this was a nice place. Probably not quite as upmarket as it tries to pretend but an enjoyable stay. The buffet breakfast was quite disappointing and I didn't use the restaurant for dinner. It's a shame there isn't a bar as arriving late in the evening only leaves the minibar as an expensive...
