I'm often there for Business. Hotel is okay, small rooms, but everything you need is there, "cool" athmosphere in the rooms. Standard breakfast buffet, no variations since years. Positiv is - its close to the rail-station. Its very noisy, you hear cars or early in the morning the cleaning trucks. For a short stay its okay. Prices are ok for...

I am currently in the hotel. It is 6:30am and it is impossible to sleep. I am on the 7th floor, the breakfast room is on the 8th floor and all I can hear is chairs and tables scraping along the stone floor. It sounds like the ceiling is been ripped off! The hotel looks beautiful and is in a...

I visited this hotel with my sisters and we stayed in the triple room. The room is small but adequate, there is a kettle and tea/coffee which is always a good thing. Didn't like the creamer they use, maybe change to uht milk? We did not have the swiss adapter for charging our phones so the receptionist kindly lent us...

The hotel is impeccably clean, located only a block away from the train station, and the staff are friendly and speak fluent English. The major downside is that the room is *very* small, to the point that it is impossible to simultaneously use the closet and enter the bathroom. The rooms on lower floors also get quite a lot of...

Despite the great location and the good and tidy rooms, I had a bad experience with the room service that have to be available as mentioned in the hotel description, I asked for an extra pillow at 10.00 pm so I got an answer from the receptionist that the requested cant be provided and that he is the only one...

I had stay at Cristal hotel twice during my business trip. I consider this hotel quite pricey for people from south east asia like me. However, this hotel location is the most strong point to consider for them who had a business trip to stay. It located in the central of geneva. Just 3 minutes walk to reach the Gaar...

It's a very modern hotel with unusual glass features in rooms that make it unique. The building also stands out as being different in an area surrounded by old style buildings. Rooms are smallish, but large enough with modern amenities. Kettle provided and you can buy breakfast at their breakfast room or immediately next door is a Starbucks if you...

The hotel is a little small but clean. The best thing about the hotel is that it is centrally located and in walking distance to major tourist attractions. The staff was friendly and willing to assist in answering questions regarding attractions and recommending nice places to dine.

I've missed a flight so I went to the Cristal Design for one night only. I've been lucky to find a room as it was during the Car exhibition. Staff very nice and charming, they also offered a free upgrade to a larger room. The room was clean, slept well, just missed the breakfast as I'd to go before 6AM....

The location is great but the space inside the hotel is very limited. The size of the double room is small but the idea of putting so many mirrors around makes it bigger. The breakfast is basic but the open view over the roofs is very pretty. The rate during peak season is not reasonable!
