Central location - very close to the lake and well connected by public transport, good sized and clean rooms, nice & friendly staff. Free public transport pass was a big bonus. Breakfast spread could be better. Kichenette has no microwave. Nights can be noisy. WiFi was a bit slow.

Found at last minute using Trip Adviser (thanks!). Worked out well. Good location - walking distance to the main station, on a tram stop (Butini), and a block from the lakeside. Amenities perfectly ok. Large rooms, little kitchen (like a small apartment). Breakfast basic but fine. Reception cordial albeit not friendly. Price just about right for the location. Needs corkscrew...

The location was very good, only 200 meters away from the Geneva famous lake. The service was ok and the breakfast included mainly two kinds of cheese. The background view was facing the other part of the hotel because it was designed in a U shape. The staff were nice and supportive. However, I paid approximately 200 $ per night...

Stayed for a long weekend and very much enjoyed the hotel. The room was very clean and quiet. The hotel location is very good just a short walk from the lake and 20 minutes from the train station. On arrival you get a travel card (free) that enables you to use all public transport. Good selection of bars and restaurants...

I visited Geneva visited again to attend a one day meeting. Coming from Nairobi with a 30+ temperature, the beautiful Geneva was kind, enabling me see sky and the town. The evenings were what was expected-cool yet I managed to walk to restaurant for dinner, the facility I stayed in being at a bed and breakfast facility

It's clear that the Drake hasn't been updated in many years. The decor is dated and suffering from the wear of many visitors; there was even a cigarette burn in the drapes, a feature I usually associate with skanky motels. For the most part the looks aren't an issue; everything in my room functioned as necessary, and if I were...

We were at the Geneva for the car show in March with my father. That hotel is in center city with the parking place and close of the public transport. Our short stay was without problems with the acceptable price for the room.
