It is certainly a novel experience staying at Bel Esperance. Run by the Salvation Army, this place is somewhere between a hotel, hostel and B&B.
It's reasonably priced for Geneva (CHF160 per night) and well located in the old town, with a large roof terrace, decent cold buffet breakfast and friendly staff. Our room was old fashioned and basic, but nice and spacious with an adequate bathroom. There are some strange things such as food being banned in the bedrooms and the hotel refusing to help with booking restaurants, but this is a good solid option in a very expensive city.
