      • Older travelers

        The hotel is quite justified our expectations, especially in terms of locations, and in some even surpassed them

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        It was wonderful having the small kitchen especially with the very expensive restaurants in Geneva. The staff were very helpful and spoke English very well which was a blessing. also helped with a query with my mobile phone.

        The noise outside early morning with traffic but I suppose you should expect that staying in the city. Maybe triple glazing when you have enough money??

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        Its location, bathroom, kitchen

        The beds, the separation between the two beds and the extra bed was not comfortable

      • Family with children

        Well located, good value, flexible apartment accomodation, did come back for a further one day stay. Staff friendly and helpful.

        A bit grubby, with a good clean and upgrade woulfd be fantastic and probabaly more expensive.

        The rooms are quite simple, but big and comfortable. The location is perfect for walking in the city center and shopping. Close to the lake. The price is very good for a hotel in such location with such big nice rooms.

        The cleanliness of the bathroom is unacceptable. It was scary and discusting.

        Very old, dirty, not good quality breakfast

        Better price for its comfort as well as the location in compare with other hotels in Geneva. Cleanness is satisfactory. Free and speedy WiFi. Excellent location for bus and train stops (in 100-150 meters) for most famous places including airport (buses No 5 and 10 go directly to the Airport from the nearest stop to the hotel) that I needed. Most of the shopping centres are in the neighbouring streets. In every two days the rooms are tidied up.

        I really liked the location, you can see the fountain from the room. It's just a few minutes walk to the train station.

        It wasn't so clean, specially the kitchen area. And I think I saw a stain in the sheet but I tried to avoid it.

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        the hotel's location is excellent - just in city center in 30 m from the lake. The price is reasonable for Geneve. This is a good hotel for an Arab family with many children.

        Everything ( walls, furniture, blankets, tableware) is quite shabby and needs a radical renovation. There is only 1 lift (for 3 persons). The breakfast costs 15 SF, but it's quite wretched.

      • Group of friends

        Stayed for 4nights and found it clean,very central & very comfy beds. Plenty of eating an drinking places closeby. It was great to have facilities to cook, yes could have better kitchen equipment but really pleased overall. Big bath sheets,good shower,pleasant helpful staff who all speak English. A short stroll to shops,to the lake and great public transport. Ask for the free pass at reception & use on all trams buses trains and little boats in central geneva.

        There is quite a lot of street noise because it is so central, also in hotel on Saturday night, this is normal for any city hotel take earplug and have a strong drink before bed
