This was a lovely little hotel only 2 minute walk to the city and lake Geneva. It was around the corner from the bus and train station and also Downtown.
Upon arrival the male staff member was very nice and helpful. Once checked in the gentleman gave us each a ticket for free public transport within Geneva. We didn't know this was included and it was a nice surprise. We were informed of the breakfast times and room where it was also upon checkin and there were no questions.
The hotel has a beautiful lobby which looks to be renovated recently, although the rooms are a little dated. I honestly can't complain about my room it was comfortable and spotless clean.
My only negatives were there was no phone or fridge, although there was tea and coffee making facilities. But with no fridge for milk, I didn't use these.
Upon my second morning I requested an iron and ironing board and also a second pillow. These were brought to me straight away with no fuss and a smile.
Breakfast was included in my room rate(phew!) and was plentiful. There was eggs,cereal, breads, yoghurts, meats and cheeses aswell as juices and tea and coffee. I have included photos. Everything was kept topped up and was no problem in asking for more.
