Individual guest reviews

  • Comfortable in excellent location, just across from train station and the Stasbourg on the same street was at least 1.5 stars better. Restaurant place for breakfast was nice, staff were friendly and the room was clean and light.

    The area is not noisy at the evenings, as such Switzerland is an expensive country and unfortunately the hotel is not cosy. Toilets smell not good.

  • Very convenient location, modern Swiss design and the staff members were very helpful and polite. Bathroom was also huge and breakfast was really good.

    The area is not very secure and the hotel is a bad 3*hotel, most of the rooms are too small.

  • The location is fantastic, hotel is nice and the front office staff is quite professional and efficient. The rooms are large and breakfast is quite good.

    A comfortable affordable place to stay in expensive Geneva, bed was hard and uncomfortable.

  • Good value and location, old town within walking distance, unfortunately as we arrived in Geneva. Modern style, great staff and very friendly helpful receptionist. The adaptable bathroom door/, the breakfast is not included in the price, and is not worth the price.

    Strong running shower would make a perfect hotel, the room is not big.

  • Great position and price, near from central train station, within easy walking distance to Lake Geneva and restaurants. The adaptable bathroom door/design and not bad for the money. I loved the style and very helpful staff.

    Since the hotel is in a busy area, room fairly small Difficult to relax as nowhere comfortable to sit in the room.

  • Location was great for shopping and the headboard of the bed was against large windows facing the front street. The breakfast was good enough for a three star hotel and the staff were always friendly, helpful and efficient. Room 804 was spacious enough.

    Poor quality and not the best hangout around the station.

  • The location was good and the price was reasonable and was conveniently located next to a train station. The hotel room was nice and clean; including the bathroom, the staff were wonderful, the beds were extremely comfortable and had lovely soft duvets. Towels were clean and new.

    Rather too modern in design for my liking, bad service and not enough light over sinkmirror. Breakfast is humble.

  • Great view from breakfast room, train station are easily accessible and the square near the hotel can be a bit dodgy late at night. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful, the bed is comfy.

    Unpleasant stay for high price, nice value and a highly expensive country, tourist assistance closed. Not enough light in the bathroom and limited restaurant.

  • Its excellent location and just next to Geneva main railway station. Great hotel best value and reasonable price/. Few minutes away from carnovin and within walking distance to the lake and the old town.

    The room tate was terrific for such an expensive city, the lady on the reception was not helpfull and not service oriented, a little too modern for my taste, the bathroom door was glass and made a slaming noise closed. Breakfast was mediocre.

  • Location very near the station and the owner should train the staff to be nice to the guests. The design is very simple and maid service is good. The room is very clean, printers and computers are available downstairs is helpful, toilets are just passable.

    The area is not the best, all hotels in Geneva are way overpriced and the bathroom is not totally closed its better to be couples. Vegetables aren't even expensive.
