The hotel is close to the station and within walking distance from the old town. We stayed in Room 20 which has a street view and my children were put in the furthest bedroom from ours, but at least on the same floor... Room 25, which had three beds and is at the back of the hotel. The fittings, cupboards,...

Very nice and clean, good breakfast, polite and helpful staff. Location was fantastic, near to train station and to centre of Geneva. Biggest problem was the heat in the room, couldn't sleep due to the hot room.

This hotel is certainly not the most fancy one in Geneva, but then it is just across the street of the Manor where you can pick up some chocolate or some sushi if you are up for a snack. The staff was friendly and breakfast adequate. My in room safe was locked and the key I received from the front...

I liked that it was a central location close to shops and restaurants. the staff were really pleasant too. However , i also felt that it was quite basic for the price, I guess because its Geneva :) Good thing is, it was also quite and a very beautiful waiting lounge.

Booked through Hotels.com at a great rate during the off season. Very centrally located hotel within 2 min of the water and many shops. Quick check-in and gave us advice on places to see also presented a free public transportation card for the entire stay. Very close to the main train station. Nice rooms with plenty of space. Would certainly...

We booked this hotel during our stay because it's the only one available that has a central location during that time. But it was really really pricey at more than CHF 700 per night. The room is on the small side and old. No view. Basic toiletries. No complimentary breakfast. For the same price, we booked the Hotel d'Angleterre when...

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times and I find its closeness to the rail station and buses very convenient. The check-in time is very late - 3 pm - when a lot of overseas flights arrive much earlier than that. I was told I could either wait or pay extra 5 ChFr per day to get into...

I cannot rate this place highly enough. It is a cosy guesthouse very close to the station if you have luggage to pull. For Geneva, which is desperately expensive, it represents quite good value. The breakfast costs extra but for Swiss prices it is quite good value as there is lots of choice. The room had everything I needed and...

The temperature was in the 30s C. No air was uncomfortable, but I managed to sleep anyway. A room in the back is preferred. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again for price and location and staff.

I stayed in late summer, and kept my window open because this hotel is not air-conditioned. Unfortunately, in addition to the occasional breeze, this let incredible levels of street noise into the room. While the cafe next door shut down at 11:30, the sirens and passers-by continued to enliven the night until street sweepers and construction noises started early in...
