      • Single

        Convenient to clinet's office and relatively cheap. I would not otherwise stay there.

        Old fashioned basic hotel with poor facilities and staff. Cannot imagine how it ever got 4stars

        • Average rating
          5.0
      • Single

        The hotel in itself is stylish but aold and the rooms and bathroom are small, with worn out furniture.The staff is unenthustiastic and does not make any effort to be welcoming.

        They did not lift the pre-authorisation on my bank card and I have a serious balance problem because of 650CHF missing, that have to wait 30 days to be cleared should they not take action (I did call them and no result).

        The location is okay but very noisy in the night.

        We were disappointed by the value for money. Will not book the hotel any more.

        The heater of my room was blocked to the maximum making the temperature unbreathable. I asked for another room but only a tiny room was available. I asked for a discount because I had to sleep with the window open and all the related negative consequences, but I was answered I had to lodge a formal complaint. I did that and I am expecting answer. The Staff indicated me a restaurant that was closed on Sunday night while I asked specifically for a restaurant that was open on sunday night.

        Its location was convenient for me.

        The tramway runs right outside the hotel so a room on the front is very noisy. the bathroom is rather small. the lobby is very nicely done, but the rooms could be updated.

        The girl in the reception being very friendly and helpful. Good location close to old town and the shopping district. Easily accessible via public transport.

        Expensive for the size and the standard of the room. However, there is a general high cost of living in Switzerland, and in combination with a large event, maybe this is what you have to expect to pay?

        Near to Geneva Lake and Restaurants in centre. Free wifi and Internet- available in the lobby

        Need to take into account there are trams passing on a frequent basis. The hotel only offers breakfast facilities - no bar or restaurant.

        Not enough time to comment. The hotel was clean.

        The rooms were small hot and there were little to no facilities. The bathroom was tight and wifi was overpriced.

        No other service provided but the accommodation. Vey poor breakfast. The staff did not know the bus/train routes, the places that a tourist should see in Geneva and they did not even have flyers for Geneva's attactions and sites. There was no internet besides the fact that they were advertising free internet in pubic areas and internet in rooms at 20CHF per week. The price is way too expensive for what they offer.
