          It provided a room at relatively short notice in Geneva which can be very difficult to find rooms.

          Always be aware the star rating in Switzerland usually overates the hotel compared to other countries, as a two star it would have met my expectations. Also, of some worry was that the fire doors on each level were held open.

          This hotel is central, in walking distance of most sites. It is located on a quiet street. At the airport you can ask the Information desk where to get a free bus ticket and how to get to your hotel. Bus 5 is the bus we took for this hotel and we got off at Terrassiere and then it is a very short walk to the hotel (4 minutes). The hotel was clean and so was our room. This hotel is good for sleeping not to hang out in the room. We were there for 2 nights and we were out touring the whole time. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful when we arrived. She gave us maps and attractions to go visit. She gave us the free transportation pass (including Buses & Trams, not sure about the train) that everyone receives when staying in Geneva. We were given free Wi-Fi for 24 hrs, and early check-in. Breakfast consisted of croissants, bread, butter, soft cheese (packaged), jams, yogurt, cereal, coffee, eggs that you had to boil. To have breakfast included in Geneva is good, since breakfast can cost over 25 CHF per person.

          There was no flat bed sheet on the bed, just the bed sheet (covering the matress) and a thin duvet that covered 3/4 of the bed. We thought it was the Protective Mattress Cover. We asked the front desk to put a flat bed sheet on the bed and realized that the 'duvet' was the sheet because the bed was the same after the maid had been to our room. The pictures that you see on the websites are old and do not represent the hotel. The water from the shower is smelly, like rotten eggs, but gets a little better once the water runs. The hotel was not full and we were given a room at the back of the hotel with a view of a roof top (ugly). It would have been preferable to have a view of the street at the front of the hotel. This hotel is overpriced but cheaper than most hotels in Geneva. I would probably recommend this hotel with all these details being known to the traveller, so they know what to expect. Keep in mind it is a 3 star hotel. If you are in Geneva on a Sunday.... everything is closed except for a few restaurants and the Cathedral St-Pierre.

        • Group of friends

          Staff were very friendly and helpful, even though I don't speak French very well. We were traveling in a group of four, and the room was bigger than I expected, with a table and plenty of floor space. Location and price both decent, especially for Geneva, which is a notoriously expensive city.

          Halls are a bit narrow for maneuvering large suitcases.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Very friendly and helpful staff, quiet for being centrally located. Friendly atmosphere.

          Quite expensive although very modest , but we are in Geneve.

        • Family with children
          6.0

          Easy to go around and shopping from this hotel.

          Rooms are not sound proof.Toilet need more maintenance.

          Very convenient, close to city centre, and very nice staff helped us a lot

          only shower in the bathroom

        • Single
          6.2

          Location is nice, close to old town and a tram stop right next to the hotel. Rooms are a nice size.

          Breakfast service was a bit lazy (running out of coffee etc.)

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Cheap wireless, nice bar, friendly staff.

          Fairly expensive but then so it the rest of Geneva!

        • Single
          6.6

          The hotel is perhaps the best value for money in this outrageusly expensive town. Nevertheless, I paid about 500 euros for three nights. The place is spartan and not excactly cozy, and may suit well for guests with Calvinist Protestant tastes. But after all, the place was clean with basic comforts, and no roach. The service was very friendly, and there was a decent restaurant downstairs. Tram stop was just around the corner, so the connections were good indeed.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          They were straight and the service was quick 24/7.

          No air condition system, extremely poor breakfast.

        • Single
          7.4

          Close to tram and bus station 'Terrassière', city centre. The hotel is in a small street, so it's calm.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Very good breakfast included in room price. Good location for Geneva shopping with tram right outside

          Room was dark even during day

        • Single
          8.8

          Spacious, clean room in a great location with kind staff.

          Small bathroom in what was otherwise a surprisingly spacious room.

        • Single
          7.4

          The courtesy and attention paid by the staff was of a high quality and made my stay enjoyable.

          I think I paid too much for the room compared to other places I have stayed.

        • Single
          7.8

          Easy tram to conference centre. Reasonable price, although Geneva is very expensive overall.

          No air conditioning during an unusually hot week.
