    « Decent rooms and affordable »

    The Hotel Best Western Strasbourg is located close to the main station, right in the Centre of Geneva, and within easy access of public transport, tram and bus. The double room is of sufficient size. They are modernly furnished. Disturbing was somehow that the bedspreads are also serving as a quilt. The bathroom is looking a bit odd with the blue sink. The bathtub serves as shower. No toiletries are available except a soap dispenser. Internet is fast and reliable. It is a nice surprise to have some complementary fruits in the room. Singe rooms are tiny.The hotel has no aircon. The continental breakfast is enhanced with some ham, cheese and hard boiled eggs. The bread selection is good. The tiny elevator is not for people with claustrophobia. The staff is attentive and friendly. Everything is extremely clean. This hotel is ideal for guests travelling by public transport. An underground garage is available at the train station, but expensive for long-term parking. Taken into account the reasonable price in costly Geneva, the Best Western Strasbourg is therefore a decent choice.

    « Good hotel close to the bus and train terminal »

    Good hotel with great location. Close to the train station as well as the bus terminal. Many restaurants nearby. Breakfast is included which was nice even though the selection was limited. The room has a window that can be opened to let fresh air in. Bathroom was spacious. The room does not have carpetting, but it has hardwood flooring. The hotel has a mini fridge with snacks,water/drinks, however it does not have a water kettle.

    Very well located and easy to access from the main station. Staff friendly. Rooms fine. We had a double and a twin room. Twin room much bigger and has bath tub. Rooms very hot. Breakfast fine. Wifi worked really well.

    « Nice hotel with a great location »

    We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Hotel was quite good. Located just 100 meters from the main train station. Stuff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very small. Was hard to get to one side of the bed... We had a room to the main street. Was not that noisy has we thought it will be. But room walls are very thin and you can hear everything from the other side of wall. Breakfast was included in the price and was also quite satisfying, even that you had only one type of ham served. Por the price we paid, it was good enough.

    « Not room 102 »

    Well Switzerland was everything I expected really beautiful , really clean , really safe and really expensive. This hotel was a bit more expensive than we would normally pay for a weekend break. But was of our usual standard. Ideally placed one street off the main transport hub - the central bus/tram/train station - close to bars and eateries. Rooms were comfortable - staff were friendly and efficient. We asked for a kettle and were given one and cups and some coffees. Breakfast was ham cheese pastries and coffee usual fare. But fine. Hotel issued a free transport ticket on arrival - Free use of "local" transport for the duration of our stay. Which was great. My only complaint or rather gripe - Was that it was still warm when we visited - there was no aircon. so we had to have the bedroom window open. Unfortunately on Friday and Saturday night there was quite a bit of street noise. There's a bar/club close by and a late takeaway. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great neither. I think our room - on the first floor - on the corner between the Bar/takeaway was probably the worst room - Had we have been on a higher floor it may have been quieter. But all in all - a good hotel - at a reasonable (for Switzerland) price.

    « Convenient location »

    Picked this hotel as was only staying 1 night and wanted to be near the train station. It is literally around the corner from the train station. Looks more modern on their website than it was in reality. Needs an update. Room is small but was ok for a short stay. Within walking distance of the lake and even of the Old Town. Staff were friendly and efficient

    « Would Not Recommend »

    We stayed here for two nights during our stay In Geneva. Our room was extremely small with only a chair at the desk for seating. There was no Air conditioning so we had to open the window at night. Unfortunately, the bar/restaurant across the street is open all night. Due to the noise in the street at all hours of the night we had to sleep with the window closed and the room was hot and uncomfortable. the shower had mold in the grout. The TV was mounted on the wall at an angle that the TV could not be seen from the bed. We only had two electrical outlets in the room and the TV and desk lamp were in one. The other outlet blew out, so we disconnected the TV to charge our phones and to dry my hair. The bed was hard and the pillows were small and flat. The lighting was terrible and we had to use a flash light to read anything with small print in the evening. Breakfast is only cold foods. Bring your own shampoo and lotion as it is not provided int he room. We had requested a coffee maker when we booked the hotel and after we registered at the hotel but it never was delivered. We went down and asked for it again in the evening. We were given one to carry up, but also had to ask for coffee, cups and sugar. I would never stay there again and could not believe it was a Best Western Hotel.

    The Hotel Strasbourg is conveniently located within walking distance of the RR station and near the Lake of Geneva. In a city which is extremely expensive, this hotel offers good value with clean comfortable accommodations.

    « Location, Clean, Modern Small Rooms, Professional Staff »

    Hotel Strassbourg (Best Western) Geneva, CH is 1 block from main train station on Rue Pradier 10. It is a modern hotel that mostly caters to business travelers, tourist or those spending a night in Geneva before catching a flight/train onward--a free train ticket to air port is available at front desk. The staff is professional, courteous, friendly. The desk is manned 24/7 which is nice. On our last visit we stayed in a front facing room and opted this time for a room off the main street as the bar across the street had out door seating and many customers late at night. The rooms are some what small as is the shower. There is no a/c but fans are provided, there is a mini bar but there are no alcohol beverages only water, juice, sodas. Our room in back was on a corner so we had a nice cross breeze, alas there was an all night (at least it seemed like it) fast food/convenience store below so there was some noise. The bed was good but the blanket was enclosed between 2 sheets rather like a letter in an envelope so it was difficult to regulate the temperature as you could not throw the blanket off and only use a sheet! There is a large sitting area in the lobby and breakfast is taken in a separate room to the right. Along with rolls/bread there was cereal, yogurt, cold hard boiled eggs, one tray of processed meat and wrapped cheese...not the best but certainly not the worst. There are any number of places to eat with in a 5-10 minute stroll....Geneva is a big city with many beautiful sites/areas, however, at night it's best to stay on the larger well lite streets

    « Convenient location, compact, clean and modern »

    This is a small hotel conveniently located near the main Cornavin railway station, shopping area and restaurants. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms and bathrooms have modern fittings. The bed is extremely comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms are very compact, but that's reflected in the price which is quite low by Geneva standards. Breakfast offerings are limited, but very tasty and served in a comfortable breakfast room. Wi-Fi worked well. Service was courteous and efficient. There might be downsides for some people.The hotel is not air-conditioned which would make it hot in the summer months. No problem in September. Being near to restaurants might cause some guests to be bothered by noise at night, but the double glazed windows masked most of it. A larger person might find it very difficult to actually get into the compact shower cubicle.

    « Great location, small room »

    The location was great, near the train station. However, the room was very small and the TV cable system didn-t work well. Breakfst was good and the staff was very friendly. I would probably stay here again but request a larger room.

    « BW Hotel in the heart of Geneva »

    I have been going to Geneva 1 or 2 times per year, recently. The Best Western Hotel Strasbourg was recommended by colleagues for these trips--both for its location and reasonable rates. The BW Strawbourg is very convenient to movement in the business part of the city. It is 1 block from the Gare Cornavin--the Geneva train station--and the main bus/tram hub. It, like other hotels in the city, provide a free bus/tram pass so that getting around Geneva and the near suburbs is easy and free. The location is near many restaurants, shops, and stores. While it is in the center of the city, the insulated windows keep the city sounds from intruding. The BW is decorated in the stark Euro-style that is efficient and more than Spartan. The rooms that I have had were modern, clean, comfortable, and had adequate work space. The staff is friendly, efficient, and very helpful. Laundry was quick and much less expensive than I expected. Breakfast is included, and is continental (real continental, not the sticky buns and coffee we Americans expect). It has sufficient variety to keep me happy during the 2 weeks that I stayed there. The BW, like most European hotels, is not air conditioned. But, I have not found this to be an issue in June nor this overly-warm September. I think that this is a "find", and I recommend it to both business travelers and tourists.

    « Good value in a good location. »

    Good location 5 min. from the train station, or the lake. Room is clean, comfortable, small. Bathroom nice, good size. Breakfast unremarkable, no toaster. Front desk staff was great, very helpful. Bars on street were noisy, but the windows in our street facing room actually shut it out !

    « Location is the key »

    Just two blocks from the train station is the most positive aspect. Very small rooms but clean. There is a restaurant across the street with outside seating that runs late and we were right across from it at the front of the hotel. However the windows were so well insulated that when closed, we had no noise issue - and I am a light sleeper. There is no restaurant but many close. Unremarkable breakfast but adequate. Location and attentive, friendly staff are its best points.

    « Great location »

    The staff was friendly and helpful. They were able to provide directions to local areas of interest. The hotel is within a very short distance from the train station and local restaurants. The elevator was rather small, so if you have a lot of luggage, you may have to make two trips (Don't pack so much). Rates were a little high but so is everything in Switzerland.

    « Good location, average hotel. »

    The hotel is in a very good location, near the train station and a few minutes walk from the lake. Room and bathroom was small, decor is on the older side but very clean. Hotel staff were nice, breakfast was included, not a lot of options for vegans (like in the whole country anyways) but the generous amount of fruit available were really appreciated.

    « Perfect location, excellent staff, great experience »

    We stayed for one night before departing from Geneva airport -- drove in with four travelers and checked in, then took our car to return it to the rental car company. We had rented the car from another city in Switzerland, and didn't know where the location was at the train station, got completely frustrated and went back to the hotel to see if our friend in the lobby could help. Boy, could he! He looked it up, called to make sure they were open, drew me a map and told me how to get there. Now THAT is service! The room was great, came with an oscillating cooling fan (oh, we needed it), and a "blackout" shutter in case we wanted to sleep in. The breakfast was really good, the area was clean and well kept, plus they had little "trash buckets" on the tables that looked just like adorable decorations, so helpful! The four of us did a good job filling that up, but it saves time for everyone when it's cleaned up. Literally a couple of blocks from the train station, and you get a free pass to all local transportation for the duration of your stay when you stay in a local hotel. VERY handy. We just happened to be there during the Festival of the Lake, what a lucky coincidence! Next time we hope to plan for that and spend more time. Geneva is incredible.

    « Great service »

    It is in a very convenient location. Very close to the train station and the lake, an easy walk. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly professional. Breakfast is very good, fresh and plentiful. We stayed for five nights using the hotel as a base to explore.

    « Close to station »

    Probably adequate for short stay but beware the lack of a/c could be a big factor in the summer. Small, somewhat dark rooms, adequate breakfast and helpful front desk. Selected because of location near station.

    « Central and Clean »

    Good location to stay 5 minutes walk from the Geneve HB. Hotel was clean and 'some' staff friendly and helpful. Room had no aircon only a fan. Breakfast very basic but good. Good for business and and weekends away to Geneve but very basic in what it has to offer.

    « Great location and hotel room »

    This hotel was chosen for its ideal location - minutes from public transit, the train station, restaurants, tourist attractions, and the waterfront. With respect to the hotel room, it was modern, clean, and very spacious for a European hotel. I had read a negative review, with respect to room size, but I completely disagree. We had a large bathroom, with wasted space, and had plenty of space in the main area to accommodate a bed, 2 night stands, closet, table and chair, lounge chair, and all of our luggage. We still had space to move around the room. I have stayed in rooms, in the past, where it was a challenge to find a place to put 2 suitcases!

    « good location but mediocre »

    this is a short distance from the gare where we had to park. It's an old hotel, in a good location, an extremely friendly & helpful staff, but the rooms are mediocre. No A/C, had to open window as fan didn't help much - over alley with a noisy night-life. bed was comfortable but i was inches from the toilette & bumping into it.

    2
    « Really basic, but the staff is super friendly. »

    I stayed at this hotel when the weather was quite hot in Geneva. There is no AC nor any kind of ventilation, so every time you get back to your room it's super hot. There is a fan available to use in front of the window, but it doesnt help much as the hot air need to go out via the same window. And there is a restaurant terrasse with client staying very late just below the windows, so it's noisy with the window open... The bedroom is super small and once you've got the fan and a suitcase, there is really no more room to go around the bed. The lift is also tiny and there is no help nor trolley for the luggages. The breakfast is nice but basic, coffee could be better. Only up side, the staff is very friendly and smiling and welcoming All in all, it's barely a 2* and for what I can see it's quite expensive (my employer booked and paid)

    « Nice hotel in very convenient location »

    Very convenient location near the station. Pleasant staff. Large room with a window you can open. Great coffee machine as far as coffee machines go in the breakfast room. My only difficulty was that there was no air conditioning and Geneva had unusually warm weather and the room retained the heat. It was very difficult to cool it down even with the window open. A small electric fan is provided.

    4
    « Overall better than expected. »

    I was not happy they didn't have AC, and unfortunately it was very hot the three days we were there. The location was perfect. Breakfast was good and the young ladies were great about refilling the baskets. By far the best part of this hotel was the man who helped us at the front desk, Jean-Phillip. He was amazingly helpful! Listen to him he has great advice.

    « Really awful »

    No air con, no bedding ( duvet in the wardrobe had no cover ?!?) The noise was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere. I was simply exhausted when my stay there was over as I got zero sleep whilst I was there. The staff are lovely & complementary breakfast is nice but a decent night's sleep would be better. They really need to invest in some bedding & air con so at least the Windows can stay closed and block out some of the partying going on outside ( massive restaurant across the road etc. )

    « conveniently located, fair price hotel »

    positives: Cheap and centrally located with breakfast included negatives: room and even lobby area is very hot in summer because on no air condition; but they have fan in room which made it fine for us.

    « Star ratings mean nothing »

    The worst night rest EVER in a hotel. The room we had in the 3rd floor had not had a makeover, as some other rooms have. The room was stuffy and dark, and with no air conditioning remained so for the whole night. Opening the window was not an option as the hotel is just off the Main Street between the station and the lake, with quite disruptive ambient noise. We had a choice between the stifling heat and the noise of cars honking , people shouting and arguing. I found the bed uncomfortable with lumpy pillows. I would definitely not return.

  • 2
    « Room... »

    I feel uncomfortable in the room because there is no air conditioning and cannot open window. The room is very humid. At night in summer time, I woke up for a couple of times because of humid. Room is small. Besides room, it is OK though...

    « Central location, clean, chic, and reasonably priced »

    Convenient, and reasonably priced hotel in the centre of Geneva, the hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the Central train station and is walking distance for Lake Geneva and the Botanical Gardens. The bus, and trams station are also nearby as are a large selection of eating places. whatever your preference you will be well catered for. The staff are very polite and friendly and helpful and most speak English. Free transportation tickets are also provided as well as helpful travel advice. The room is tidy a bit on the small size but still fit for purpose, the decor is nice however it does make the room a bit on the dark side, the bed is comfy with fresh clean linen, the bathroom is modern with a small shower cubicle. A good night sleep was had despite my room fronting onto the square. Breakfast is of the Continental variety, so no fried stuff, boiled eggs, fruit and pasties, which were fresh and tasty. I would recommend and will return when i am next in town

    « Terrible »

    Must be one of the worst experiences in Geneva. In desperate need of renovation, no air condition, barely any lighting in the rooms, no bed covers were supplied in the room and suggested by reception to use the 1970s blankets from the cupboards. Wonder how they still hold on to 3stars. Felt more like a hostel. To avoid!

    3
    « great location but noisy and cramped »

    Maybe it was just the room I had but it was small and pokey and quite dark. On both nights there were people having an argument outside my window in the square at the back. Difficult to control temperature in the room. Functional rather than great.

    3
    « Excellent Value for money »

    Myself and my partner stayed here a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The hotel is a little basic but location is fantastic. It was clean and the staff very polite and helpful, I had to ask for a kettle etc for the room which was dealt with straight away. Breakfast is continental and adequate. You can walk everywhere from this hotel and the kebab shop in the square is fantastic and very reasonable. I would certainly stay here again if I returned to Geneva- but would take more toiletries as hotel only supplies an all in one dispenser

    4
    « Convenient location »

    The hotel is in a very convenient location, directly across from the main train station. We arrived late at night but there were still quite a few restaurants open within the block. Geneva is a very small city so almost everywhere is within walking distance. The hotel does hand out free public transportation ticket, but we didn't even need it. Hotel staff all speak good English, and are very courteous. No AC, and street noise can be a problem. Room rate is high, but actually reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. A good choice for an overnight stay at a convenient location.

    « Geneva's Best Hotel »

    Hotel Strasbourg, by Best Western has the best staff, very accommodating, helpful, very close to train station, no need for taxi or shuttle. Restaurants all around. Great Coffee and breakfast. If you travel here in summer, be sure to ask the front desk for a fan, could get a little warm in the room. Very close to shopping, Starbucks, many wonderful restaurants.

    « Awesome showers, nicely thought out bedrooms »

    Really well located, and in my view the best hotel in easy reach of the Cornavin station. The staff are businesslike but helpful and the atmosphere is professional and businesslike in my view. The rooms are on the small side but this is prime real estate and there i was plenty of room for everything I needed, although the desk was a bit small. The windows came with shutters and curtains which was nice if you wanted to sleep with the window open but still have a draft but not exhibit yourself to the neighbours! I had a really good night's sleep here with no noise coming from next door's rooms or those above. The bathroom or shower room as I had was very clean as was the rest of the hotel, but it is the showers that (almost literally) blew me away - instant hot water and no shortage of it and blistering power if you so chose to avail yourself of it. I did and after a incredibly long day at work it really blew away the cobwebs and allowed me to finish off my work. Opposite the hotel is the Bar des Brasseurs which as the name implies is a brewery bar, I recommend giving it a try as well if you are staying here. Breakfast was included and entirely as it should be, again with very nice yoghurts in a nice breakfast room, the juices and coffee was just fine as well. I shall be coming back for sure.

    « Won't stay here again! »

    I really regret staying here. The nightshift desk attendant was very rude, the so-called breakfast was a joke, very poor selection. Ham slices, no cheese, nothing hot. My room faced the sun, and it was very hot, there is no AC, so I was told to open the windows and when I did flies were everywhere. The bed was hard, the television only had only two english channels, no coffee in the room, the ice machine was broken. The only positive was the wifi, which worked well. I gave it two stars because of the wifi and location. Still, there are much, much better places in Geneva. I paid 266 CHF, for this? Never again.

    3
    « Reasonable hotel, small rooms, average breakfast »

    This hotel is not bad. It is conveniently located. The breakfast is nothing special. I definitely would not pay for it as an add-on if it were not included in my room price. Hotel room is clean but very small. NO AC! If Geneva is as hot as it was last summer (2015), I would NOT stay at a hotel without AC.

    « Great location »

    A basic hotel with very friendly staff. Rooms small and beds not that comfortable but for the location worth it. Rooms were warm during our stay so we opened windows but evenings very noisy so perhaps request a room facing away from Les Brasseurs bar. Breakfast was typically continental and free WiFi was welcomed. Found a wonderful bottled beer shop just around the corner which made up for the high mini bar prices. Would stay here again but if you are looking for all the mod cons then look elsewhere.

    « Brilliant location, great hotel »

    Very easy to get to from the train station, literally a couple of minutes walk Helpful friendly staff, great straight forward room, with bath and shower Decent breakfast Luggage store for your final day Central location and loads of restaurants nearby. The pub over the road was noisy on Friday night as you'd expect, but the double glazing is uber efficient!

    « Good location »

    THE location is good as it is 2 minutes from the trainstation and other public transportoptions and it is 5 minutes walking to the lake. The room was good also but a bit small, even because it was a 1 person room. Minibar and fridge are at hand but coffee/tea stuff is at request as are the bathroomamenities. The tv has a lot of channels but most are french or german, only 3 out of some 40 channels are english spoken (news) channels. The street and restaurant accros the street can cause a bit of noisedisturbance so book a room at the backside. The free wifi worked excellent. The breakfastbuffet will get you started, few sorts of bread/pastries, granola and yoghurt. But they could do better with the selection for breadspreads and stuff. But as said it's sufficiënt to start the day. On checking you receive a free public transportcard for Geneva center and to the airport. You will get this at each Geneva hotel as a little gift from the city Personel is not overfriendly they just do there job. Each time you leave the hotel you must leave your roomkey at the frontdesk, which I think is not of this time anymore. Overall I am not to sure if I would stay here again when in town. There are lots of alternatives around the station and near the lake.

    « Great Location and Good Room »

    The hotel is perfectly situated as it is right next to the metro shopping centre (also the metro and train station). It is literally 5 minutes walk to the lake and Tourist information centre which we found useful as we bought passes which allowed us to do many activities for a great price. The hotel provided free travel pass which allowed us to travel everywhere for free (trains, bus and metro) which was a bonus. However the room has no air con and it gets extremely stuffy and difficult to sleep because of the heat and when you open the window's you get a lot of noise from outside. Apart from this I can't fault the hotel, the location, breakfast, staff and most importantly reasonable price.

    « Perfect for what we wanted »

    We have just come back from a New Years break in Geneva. The New Years celebrations were very good down at the lake. We stayed at this hotel and couldn't fault it for the price we got. Nice looking inside, very clean rooms and very good location, especially if you need the train. Only thing I would really want improving was the breakfast selection but my Fiancé was happy with it. I would definitely use this hotel again if I returned again in the winter, I may reconsider in the summer as it was very hot in the room with no air con. Overall we left happy with our stay

    « CONVIENT LOCATION, NICE STAFF BUT THE AREA AND THE BED WAS A LITTLE NAFF! »

    I booked hotel as part of a Geneva Motor show package. It is close to many local amenities including stores, newsagents, restaurants/eateries. The Metro Central shopping centre/plaza is the nearest to the hotel and can be used to come and go to the main train station. The good points: Customer service was good, the staff spoke English(good job as my french is bad!) All the reception men were very pleasant - the first one gave me my travel pass (3 days) for which I showed my passport and signed a document. Also one of the staff helping me and others at the nearest bus stop. The continental breakfast has a good variety - yogurts, muesli, croissants, cereal, fruit etc. I was told by another guest you can have as much as you like. The size of my room was just right for a single person.The bathroom was also compact. The shower inside was a corner cubicle - enough room for a small to average sized person. The minus points were: The noise from the street and 24hr restaurant and bar/club disturbed my sleep at times. I also found that the was VERY Uncomfortable - like sleeping on Sponge Bob!. I plan to return to Geneva in the future. I shall NOT be staying here again - unless the annoying issues such as the sound proofing/ glazing, bed mattress and lights are fixed. There are many other hotels in the area close to the station from which to pick that would be more suitable overall. Also I would not recommend using the Metro Central once it gets dark as there are unsavory types around. Also make sure you go the right entrances and exits to and from the Metro central or you could get confused. Two helpful landmarks are a statute of a man(I did not see who)with a winter hat and two sphinxes on the shopping street nearby, I looked at the directions on the internet and this did help but I recommend street view on google maps. ( I rang the hotel to make sure I was going the right way.) Overall the package through Geneva tourism was reasonable it included: 3 days travel pass, hotel accommodation and Geneva motor show entry.

    Been there for three nights,the location is nearby the main train station-just 3-4 minutes walking with luggage. It's also close to the start of both tours i had-gare routiere. At the last day i asked to have an early breakfast which i find many hotels don't want to do-but here the staff was kind and friendly and let me have breakfast at 6:30am. The rooms were clean,quiet and comfortable. I'm glad to choose this hotel.

Breakfast meets your needs, but not a lot of variety. Very good staff. Real downfall is how warm the rooms get. If you open the windows and specially if you are in the front as we were, the noise from the street at night is very loud. As in most hotels in this price range in Geneva, there is no air. We were visiting in April when the nights are cool. I think it would be very difficult in these rooms in the hot summer months. Wifi was great. Lots of restaurants in area. Also close to variety of grocery stores.

    « Hotel very close to Cornavin Train station »

    This hotel would be ideal for a short business trip to Geneva. This hotel is a minute's walk from the Cornavin train station. There are direct trains from the airport to Cornavin station (about 6 minutes). At the airport, you can get free tickets (from machines just before you exit the baggage collection area). At the hotel, they give you a free pass (which can be used on all buses and trains in Geneva). Cornavin has a number of trains and buses connecting it to different parts of the city. Coming to the hotel, it is a basic hotel which provides you all you need for a short business trip. The hotel provides for Continental breakfast. There are a number of restaurants nearby. (I found Bombay Restaurant just a block away). Free WiFi is provided by the hotel. Hotel staff are extremely helpful.

    « Best western strasbourg »

    The service and the staff can be a little be better, the hotel is in a corner with missing indication, I had to use the gps to find it . The TV channels was unavailable all the time, I had to ask about the problem and the staff didn´t solve the problem.

    « Best location for trains »

    Very good sized room with tub and shower. Queen bed. Free wifi and breakfast which was served early at 7 and well stocked but no hot food. Reasonable price. Helpful staff. Good location for city walking tour. Exactly what we needed for short stay in Geneva.

    « Nice hotel in the centre of the city. »

    Small comfortable rooms, but no air con, rooms are too hot even with the heating turned off. Too noisy to open the window. No gluten free bread on the first day, but rectified for the rest of the stay. Nice breakfast and pleasant friendly staff. All in all an OK stay.

    « A Good Deal in Central Geneva »

    Summary: This hotel in central Geneva conveys a bit of charm. The facility is cozy and the rooms are more than adequate. The staff are OK and the morning breakfast buffet serves the purpose well. The room rates are reasonable for the location and the quality of the accommodations. Details: I was in Geneva for a weekend between business appointments in Switzerland. I had never been to this city before and was looking for a place in city center that was reasonable with respect to price. This hotel caught my eye as I am a Best Western Diamond member and tend to gravitate toward properties in this group. Not only were the room rates good, the location was ideal as it was within easy walking distance of the main train station. The facility, though close, was not that easy to find from the train station as there were a couple of turns on the GPS that were not easy to figure out. But I made it, nonetheless. The location was on a one-way street that was not a high traffic thoroughfare. The street front appearance was decent but not necessarily attractive. The interior was a different story, however, as the lobby was quite nice with a bit of a homey feel. I was checked in very efficiently by the front desk attendant. In general, I found the staff to be adequately helpful though I did not get a warm welcoming feeling from them. They were generally polite but it did not extend much beyond that. I was assigned a room on the second floor which suited me well. I found my room to be clean and decently spacious with average decor. The work area was adequate and the bathroom was in good shape and functional. The view from the room looked down on the street below. The bed was comfortable though the environs were not always quiet. Hence, sleep was sometimes interrupted thanks to street noise. A different room opposite from the street might have been a bit better in that respect. The morning breakfast was pretty good as the buffet offered several options. There were a couple of hot items as well as the typical cold meats, cheeses, cereals, breads and juices. The coffee was decent but not much more than that. The seating could get a little cramped at various times of the morning. In addition to being close to several attractions, there were also many restaurants within walking distance of this hotel. There was a terrific variety of choices for various sorts of fare. There were also several shops nearby for souvenirs, chocolates, etc. The room rates were not bad for a Swiss center city location and the quality of the accommodations. The average room rate for my three night stay was 120 CHF including tax. This was $119 USD per night with the conversion rate at the time. This was not a bad deal at all with everything considered. In general, this establishment is a good spot to use as a base to see Geneva as the location is ideal. The proximity to the train station and Geneva's primary attractions is a big plus. The facility is nice and not without charm. The rooms are beyond adequate, the staff are polite and the morning breakfast is good. The room rates are more than reasonable. If you need a place to stay in Geneva, this is worth considering.

    « Friendly and convenient. »

    We arived after flights from home and made our way to the hotel, just a few minutes walk from Cornavin Railway Station. We were immediately checked in and went to our room. The room is small, but enough for our needs. There is a double bed, desk area with an assorment of plugs, closet for hanging clothes and a small cupboard with two shelves for storing other items. There re enough mirrors and the lighting, this must be the bightest room we have ever stayed in. Not the dingy low powered light fittins but more than enough bright lights. The bathroom is compact, with shower cubicle sporting a "rain" showerhead as well as a hand held shower. Everything one needs is ther. One comment, toilet paper is not the "roll" type but a dispenser with paper squares is in its place. Rather awkward! My wife requested a kettle and was given one to use. Breakfast is a good spread. Juices, cheese, cakes, cereals and eggs. A range ofjams and other spreads are also available. Location is perfect. near the railway station, close to Manor, the department store, easy walking distance of the "old" city. Windows are double glazed and there is a pull down shutter to make the room as sound proof as possle and also completely dark.We heard no noises from the hotel itself, not even from the elevator which is across from our room. All in all a good all round hotel

    « Best hotel to travel around Geneva region »

    Stayed for more than 2 weeks in this hotel for the business matters. Great place to live when you need to travel (train station is just 5 min walk), and even a greater spot to be while exploring Geneva. Hotel is located right in the centre of the city - close to the lake and the old town, and several bus stops with international organisations directions just around the corner. Amazing breakfast included, and lots of Mark Rothko copies on the walls ;)

    « Conveniently located »

    The location of the hotel is conveniently located to the train station and trams. Just off the river, it has many restaurants and food outlets surrounding it. It is also a 10 minutes walk away from Old Town where you can check out ancient parts of Geneva. Room is functional, clean and neat even though it is small. I have absolutely no problems with it. Price is high perhaps due to the location. Wifi is free and the hotel like many provides a free transport card for your travels within a certain zone and to the airport. Breakfast is not a huge spread but to me has all the necessary items to make it a good one. Some have complained about the noise level but as I live in the city, it is not a big problem even though you can sometimes hear door slams. But not major noises.

    « Easy to find/Overpriced »

    We have stayed in it for our weekend break in Geneva. It's very easy to find it, I would say it took us about 3 minutes walk from the train station. Reception was really well decorated, room was fine. I think it could be better as hotel has got 3 stars, but I couldn't see any big difference from some of the motels we had stayed before. It was no air con, so first night we had to open windows in a middle of the night to let some air in. Also, it was no duvet, just sheet and blanket in a wardrobe. However, we have really enjoyed simple continental breakfast.

    « Average & overpriced »

    I stayed one night at this hotel on a business trip. The location is good, near the central station. The hotel, however, is small and old and although the rooms were renovated, you can still hear everything that goes on in the neighboring rooms - from women walking up and down in their heels to alarm clocks ringing in the morning. Service is average, and the buffet breakfast in the morning VERY poor. It's a hotel with no character and I was thankful to only spending one night there.

    « Tight fitting room »

    It is near to the train station and easy for independant travellers like us planning to explore the Lavaux Vineyards. Given a table fan. Kettle available upon request at the reception. Breakfast adequate with eggs, cold meats, cereals and fruits. Pastries substandard_not as good as in France. Wifi slow. Short walk to the lake to see the fountain Jet d'Eau.

    « First Trip to Switzerland »

    The room was spotlessly clean with a well stocked and replenished mini bar and a big TV but a little small for 2 people. The cleaners were most friendly and helpful. The shower must have been designed to give a new meaning to the word small. Each movement in the shower gets you bruised or scalded either by the glass partitions or the hot water streaming in after hitting the hot water knob by mistake. You curse loudly and hit even harder.. Don't try to close your eyes as you shower even with soap in your face because you will hit something for sure. I learnt to freeze my frame and methodically move my hands. Bending to reach your legs is out of question because you will break the shower cubicle entirely. The only lift is equally small. We took one bag at a time to the room. Other than that they have the most friendly and helpful reception staff. Always greeting us with a smile and willing to help. Lovely people!

    The location is perfect. Near the Central Station and many shops and restaurants. Decent rooms and helpful staff. The breakfast however offered little choices. Great place to stay while touring Geneva.

    « Everything is there »

    Good bed, nice room, good breakfast and nice staff everything you need for a business stay in Geneva. It is a really good base either to visit the international institutions or the city center. A little noisy if you open the window...

    « Nice to play to stay »

    A lot of good things can be said about this hotel: it is very well located, it takes less than 5 minutes on foot to get to the railway station, and the city centre is not far either. There are a lot of grocery stores nearby, so you can buy some food and drinks easily... Staff was very friendly, I don't remember the guy's name who worked at the front desk, but he gave us a warm welcome and was always smiling whenever we came to talk to him and no matter how annoying we were with our many questions. If that can help identify him, we arrived on October 18th 2014, at around 4-5 pm. The rooms was also very comfortable. The only problem was the relatively noisy street, there's a bar-restaurant and people were there until late at night. And in the morning, there were some public works on the street and that also made some noise (but maybe those are already over by now and at any rate the hotel is not to blame). But that's only a minor detail and we'd definitely stay there again if we went to Geneva.

    « Efficient, clean, friendly »

    After reading other reviews of this hotel we were nervous but we were pleasantly surprised. No late night noise from the bars, not a hooker area. Walking distance from the train station. Lots of restaurants between the hotel and the lake on Rue Mont Blanc and the pedestrian street too. The tub/shower and bathroom in room 410 were modern and roomy. There was a fan already in our room. In summer the lack of A/C would be a problem but not now. The breakfast was more than adequate and fresh.

    « Good value in good location »

    Stayed here on business for three nights. It is a block from Cornivan Station, close to a range of dining options, shops, and trams. The rooms are simple and clean. Continental breakfast was included in the rate -- it was average, but coffee excellent. The staff were on the whole friendly and responsive. The rooms are fairly quiet but the street noise can be disturbing if your windows need to be open (i.e., in summer).

    « Comfortable and well located »

    Warm welcome with quality service staff. Wifi works perfectly and is included. Nice rooms. Perfectly located. Standard breakfast but nothing missing. Perfect place for business stays. Comfortable bed and functional bathroom. Close to rail and bus stations. And for beer amateurs, just front of a nice brewery.
