Great adjoining rooms were immaculate and the two sleeping areas were divided by the bathroom. Regret we only had one day/night there, but we'd definitely return to this prime location. Each room had a balcony, one side overlooking a beautiful flower shop. Upper terrace would be good on a day that was less windy. Desk staff was very friendly and Melody is helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Get adjoining rooms! Great option for privacy and togetherness!

Situated in the old town of Geneva this place will surprise you, it's listed as two stars but fees much much nicer, whilst it's a simple hotel, the room I had 407 had a great balcony overlooking the cathedral with two chairs to relax, very clean and good beds, I would recommend as its such a great location and a real bargain for Geneva. Great staff team who were very welcoming and helpful too.

This very basic hotel is nicely located in the Old part of town. It is a short walk to the bus that goes to the airport and is near many shops and restaurants. No air conditioning but on our last day we discovered that they had fans which helped.

Our room was large enough for a desk and a table with two chairs. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. There was enough storage space and a small safe that was big enough for money and passports. The room was clean though the decor seemed like something you would find in a tacky hotel in Florida.

The breakfast was good, but the selection was smaller than what you usually find in European hotels. They do have lactose-free milk on request.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is my second visit. The hotel is right in the old city, less than 5 minutes from even the furthest bus or tram stop, close to many restaurants, and surrounded by old & interesting historic buildings. Of course summer in Switzerland (even in early September) is an interesting season, but on hot days, most hotels tend to struggle with heat. This property does not have air conditioning, and leaving windows open at night tends to bring in excessive noise. Still, I would always be back - good breakfast, conveniently located & "relatively" inexpensive.
