        • Single

          It is an incredible location (probably the best in town), and the price makes it the best value in Geneva.

          The room was incredibly small, but effecient. The Internet was horrible. It was broken the entire time so that no one in the hotel could use it. Down for an hour or two, fine. For more than 1.5 days? Not acceptable.

          • Average rating
            6.6
        • Single

          Very Clean. New. Good location.

          The fee to use Wireless LAN is very expensive. it was 20CHF. Considering this fee, the room price is not so reasonable. If you don't need it, this hotel is really reasonable.

          New designed Hotel, friendly staff and good facility extras which help you when needed (ironing possibilities, energy transformer, mini bar, taxi call, etc.. which helps you in case of needs. In the city, next to bus/train station (and Starbucks, McDonald's).

          I loved the style, the location and the service. I made an error with my booking and the hotel could not have been more professional in helping me resolve the problem. I highly recommend Hotel Cristal Design in a city where it is hard to find value for money.
