      Individual guest reviews

      • Just in the centre and good value. Great for the price and very nice staff. Kitchen in the room relatilvely central and loved having the kitchenette.

        The location was excellent, close to the lake and fountain and near the old town, the bathtub was filthy and the water did not evacuate The walls.

      • Excellent location big rooms, just back from lake Geneva and the hotel gave a free bus pass for generva was great. Staff were very friendly and the kitchen and bathroom were clean and acceptable.

        Old design small elevator and the woman crossed the street and kept walking away. The parking available nearby was 3 blocks a way and shower was extremely high.

      • The location was great, the hotel was an appartment fully equipped and clean near to lake, the staff were eager to give directions.

        Room only cleaned once during 3 night stay old furniture and not very clean, loud road noise throughout the entire night. Worst front desk people ever and shower could have been better i.e. at appropriate height. Drawers in the kitchenette full of dirty cutlery and most of reception people are Chinese.

      • Central location fridge in room clean, boat was also good and provison of bus travel coupon by hotel during stay was very useful. The staff were really nice, also the heating was on way too high all night and cannot be adjusted, mattress were the worst I have ver slept on.

        Probably the most expensive city in the world and noisy street. The place was dull and the bathroom was a little unkept.

      • Fantastic location, surprisingly good hotel for the price and spacious studio could not make up for the wrong choice.

        Unfriendly staff, very old furniture and and the towels had just been folded and rehung, definitely not clean.

      • Location is nice close to the lake, the hotel is clean and the reception staff are very efficient and polite in a robotic sort of way. The internet is free.

        The price of 120euro/night is for the offered low quality/substandard accommodation far too high and specially the bathrooms need to modified. Facilities are old.

      • Just in the City Center, its a cheap hotel in Geneva and good price/. The staff are really friendly, the room is large.

        Old building and service and facility are highly mismatched. Beds could be better suited to couples travelling together.

      • Big rooms and location, good value, the price is reasonable for Geneve. The staff is friendly, the bathroom is serviceable and free wifi seems to work fine, the utensils in the kitchen could also have been better.

        The hotel is old and need a renovation, road noise as is on busy main avenue. The reception desk is closed, gout in the shower is black, floor is dirty.
