Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2012. Had a very good experience. The location is excellent with it being very close to the Cornavin train station as well as the city centre. The airport is 6 mins away by train (station is a 1 min walk). The rooms are quite big, and the staff (a special mention for Tracy...

Have stayed here several times. Rooms have all the basics and the decor is fine. I found the those off the main dining room (agree with comments on the slightly strange layout) to be nicer than the others, but see that some people have had issues with noise in that part of the hotel. The atmosphere in the dining room...

The rooms are sparkling clean, but as others have mentioned, the layout is odd. Rooms open directly on to the lobby, so expect to hear talking, rattling dishes, etc. The front desk person had a cough, so guess what all the customers listened to all night? Wifi is free, but I could only connect in the lobby, not my room.

Geneva is extremely expensive so a budget hotel like this one opposite Cornavin Station is worth considering. The staff are fairly pleasant and the breakfast was reasonable. The room was clean and comfortable and the decor was nice. The only problem is that most of the rooms are arranged around the breakfast area and reception desk. Having stayed there before,...

I'm always satisfied when I stay at Les Arcades. The service is very good, the hotel is well located for someone who travels for business, in front of the Cornavin station. I like very much the breakfast served there and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Pour notre voyage de fin d'année, nous avons opté pour cette hôtel pour notre escapade a Genève. Bien que l'hôtel est juste en face de la gare, il est parfaitement insonorisé. Nous avons énormément apprécié l'accueil et la disponibilité des employés. Merci Je confirme,donc que l'emplacement de l'hôtel est énorme atout.
