The best thing about the hotel is its price compared to its great location - a few meters far from Cornavin station and close to the lake. The hotel also provides free pass for public transport, which is also great. The rooms are tiny, but if you are on a business trip, that won't be an issue. The room and...

We stayed 4 nights and had 2 rooms next door to each other at the back of the hotel so fairly quiet. There's a lift to all 6 floors. You go to Britannia pub next door for your breakfast which we found to b an excellent choice of cooked or continental or both if you were that hungry! It was...

Our group had 3 rooms. The rooms were small but extremely clean and modern. The two rooms we had facing away from the main street were quieter. The hotel is located directly across from the train station, so transportation everywhere was extremely easy. Breakfast was good. The bar was nice for an after dinner glass of wine. We thought it...

Really easy to meet all friends who arrived from different places on different flights. Staff at reception were so helpful despite arriving hours before official check-in they arranged for us to have rooms which were ready and get others ready asap. Fantastic.... went for coffee and on return all rooms ready (and on same floor) ...service continued to be excellent...

Booked the Astoria for one night. Little choice in Geneva due to Watch Fair. The Astoria is an average hotel at best and was very expensive at over 300 CHF for one night bed and breakfast. The service was good and the staff helpful. The rooms are small and stale. The bathroom was also very small but at least clean...

One of the many midrange hotels I have used around Place de Cornavin. Small, compact hotel but great location by the station. Breakfast isn't spectacular but is served in the pub, The Britannia, which is certainly a lot more fun in the evenings. Rooms are fine and I'd use this one once again.

I booked this place in order to save money but I probably should've spent the extra $20 to stay at the Ibis next door or the Cristal a block over. The rooms are tiny, old and warn. The staff seems nice enough, but they are doing renovations so the service elevator is broken and they have plactic covers on the...

I have stayed in hotel Astoria for 2 nights, I would say that it's an average pension rather than a hotel, however it suited exactly my purpose of my visit to Geneva... let's speak about the positive 1) very near to the main train station cornavin - 2 minutes walk 2) the space of the room is below average for...

Up front - Geneva is an expensive city in an expensive country. I don't think you'll find a better price in a comparable hotel this central. It's just across the road from Cornavin (central) station for both long-distrance trips and half the city's bus and tram routes (for which you get a free pass from the hotel you are staying...

Stayed there for over a week and it was great! Very near the tram and bus station, shops and the Basilica de Notre Dame just across. Breakfast was delicious with just the right selection of cereals, fruits, cheeses, breads, meats and juices. Not overwhelming, but satisfying even for long stays. I was upgraded to a twin room. It was not...
