We had a wonderful stay. Not luxurious but the bed and the room were fine and the bathroom had modern fittings and lots of hot water. Free wi-fi, the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Best of all, you're right in the heart of the old town, with its ancient stones and streets. And hills! Also a stone's throw from trams & busses, cafes, the fancy shops, and the lakeside. And free public transport is wonderful - from a machine at the airport into the city, and the card from the hotel front desk.

Room Tip: The whole area seemed to be quiet at night.

Nicely situated in the old town. Single rooms are small but neat and fresh. No air conditioning and rather noisy street outside (cheerful people, not cars) so ask for a quiet room if you need to sleep with open window. Beds a bit on the hard side for my taste. Nice breakfast buffet.

The rooms are clean and quiet, the location is superb, the staff are friendly and very helpful, the wifi is free, the showers are strong. What else, really, do you need? The prices are very reasonable by Geneva's pricey standards and there were no hidden extras on check-out. I'd certainly recommend it and will use this hotel again when next in Geneva.

We were very happy with our hotel room, location in Geneva, staff helpfulness with transportation routes and answering our questions. We especially loved breakfast and the roof terrace. Bel'Esperance was affordable, quiet, comfortable and met our travel needs. We are happy to recommend it.

Room with great view on the Cathedral & lovely balcony
Great to find room keys in small box with my name due to late arrival; i was lucky to get to the reception when a guest arrived or I would have not enjoyed the place as much
