The hotel is functional with clean rooms that have clearly been refurbished, the breakfast was good with good coffee machine, fresh croissant etc and also the roof terrace is not to be missed. Location is excellent for lovely old town and the lake, and after catching the train from the airport I had an easy 15 min walk although there...

This hotel was such a pleasant surprise for a two star hotel. The rooms are very clean and functional the breakfast very good and it was so quiet. The location in the old town very very central to good restaurants and sights. There is also a rooftop terrace

A warm welcome, cosy clean rooms and an excellent breakfast are the hallmarks of this hotel. It is easily accessible by public transport and is close to the older part of the town. It is excellent value for money. A great base from which to explore Geneva

I had a great night and morning at the Hotel Bel'Esperance. I had a studio room with a kitchenette and plenty of space. The included breakfast was delicious, with fresh squeezed orange juice, delicious croissants, a great selection of cheeses, and good coffee.

This hotel is nothing fancy, but it's one of the best priced hotels in the city, and best locations in old Geneve, and is sufficient -- it's clean, great breakfast, nice rooftop patio, has a kitchen if you want to cook a meal, steps to the main shopping district. Kind of no-frills spot that does the trick!

Our room was large, with ensuite shower room & kitchenette. There was a coffee maker, TV & safe. Convenient location in the old town, slightly noisy at night but not as bad as other reviews suggest while.we were there. Filling up on the free breakfast saved money & meant we only needed a snack at lunch.

Stayed there for a 1 night stay in Geneva. Place is fine, locate close to the old town, where one can find good dinner locations. Rooms are OK, clean, but quite noisy and very simple... While not genuinely overpriced, since it is in Geneva, it still is too high for the value...

I stayed here during an exhibition when all other hotels where exceptionally expensive. Bel'Esperance was still reasonably priced. It's in a great location in the old town near the cathedral and winding streets with bags of character. The hotel itself is simple and basic, but the staff friendly and accommodating. The room was large and relatively comfortable, no luxury, but...

Stayed for one night in this hotel. It's nicely located in the old town and a short walk to restaurants and to the shops and the lake. Very keenly priced. Bed is comfortable and room large and clean. However, It is not double glazed or well insulated and as a result the noise from the street, the church bells and...

It took me ages to find this place, having arrived at Geneva railway station in the evening. The room was small and basic- the noise from the street outside went on until 0300 hrs - the best thing was the breakfast the next morning - which was plentiful and good quality.
