This hotel is quite modern but very weird, it is close to train station but it is all bad from here. The hotel was less than 20% occupancy, with never more than three people at included breakfast, so a 1PM check in with zero temperature outside would have been expected. But the man on reception, who did not wish to...

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my business trip. This hotel has excelent location, few minutes from old town square, and one minute from public transport and trains. Great value for your money.

We only stayed in the hotel one night. The hotel and room do rely remind of a cristal, it is not our style, but the staff is very kind and helpful. The room was clean and the beds good. The down side in the room is that what ever light you might turn on any where in the room or...

Looking for a decent hotel, close to the station with a walk in shower, quality room, solid walls so no noise from neighbours, lift and excellent buffet breakfast, tv, telephone (inter room calling facilities), little or no noise from street, comfy bed, decent lighting and enough space for hanging clothes, a safe, tea and coffee facilities with ultra clean quality...

Cool ice blue motif, very modern. Friendly staff. One block from the train station, lots of shops, restaurants and even a Starbucks within 2 square block. Lots of people watching! The train station also has a grocery store and lots of shopping if you need gifts.

I was travelling with my family in June 2014 and we decided to stay for one night in Cristal Design hotel. We arrived around 9.30 pm and we were asked to wait until the hotel staff will check the room. It was ok for me but after 30 minut waiting we were told that they can't find the key of...

Hotel in city center. It's looking like Ibis Budget a bit because of room construction, modul furnitures. Small but confortable room. Basic and not special breakfast, French kind. Service is good and helpful.

The rooms are compact but modern, which is rare for Geneva where the hotels tend to be old. And it is also reasonably priced, which is hard to find in this city. It is conveniently located near the train station, with the rest of the city a short walk away. The area around the station isn't the cleanest or safest,...
