Interesting modern decor boutique hotel staffed by courteous multi-lingual personnel. Our efficiently designed room was completely spotless every day of our stay. Centrally located across from the main train and bus station in downtown Genéve; entry is off Rue Pradier. Unseasonably warm weather in early May was easily managed with automatically-timed vertical blind window shades in our 6th floor room...

We stayed here as three girlies in a triple room in autumn 2016. It was a great choice and I was pleasantly surprised. We took a taxi from the airport which was pricey but took the train back to the airport as the hotel gave us a free travel pass and the hotel is 2 minutes from the train station!...

The Hotel Cristal is a decent place for a half decent price, in a town where it is easy to get indecent for too much. Located right across the street from the train station, it has modern, comfortable albeit small rooms, a very nice buffet breakfast up on the top floor, and ... well, that is about it. If on...

Avoid room 309, which is in the front of rue Pradier, a narrow and dirty street. The hotel faces a discount store and so my view was of the motorcycles parked in front of the store. The rooms are weirdly space-age, and the narrow bed reminded me of a dorm room. But it was comfortable, I thought, until around 2-3am...

The place is right outside of the train station and shops, close to Starbucks, grocery store, and a short walking distance to the lake. The room design is modern and efficient. I booked a smaller room for one person but was offered a regular room that sleeps two. It's actually quite spacious. The staff helped out printing out my boarding...

Nice modern hotel, very close to the station (1 minute walking), public transport and to the city center. Receptionists were all very kind and professional. Room was very clean, comfortable, quiet. Good sleeping experience. Haven't tried the breakfast, but the was a (brand new) kettle with teas and coffees in the room. Maybe the A/C fan was a bit too...

It's clean and the service is good. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but then two single beds pushed together never is. I only stayed here one night but I slept ok and the location is great I picked it because it was the cheapest option but if the various station hotels I've stayed in this is one of the...

There is nothing wrong with this hotel. It deserves its 3 stars. It is clean and well appointed just a bit on the small side. The only gripe I really had was the lighting. In the bathroom area it wasn't suitable for applying makeup and if you turned the light on in the bathroom the bedroom lights came on as...

Just came back from 2 nights in Geneva and stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is 5 out of 5. Right outside the main train station and walking distance to almost anywhere in Geneva. We didn't need to use public transport at any time during our two day stay there. This is where the compliments end. We booked a...

I was expecting something better given the positive feedback on here. The only redeeming feature was that the staff allowed me an early check in so I could prepare for a business meeting, otherwise this would be a solid 2. I'm only 26 and I've woken up this morning with a sore back from the awful (single) mattress. The one...
