A decent hotel, but it suffers from being in a very noisy part of town. It is very handy for the station, the lake and the cultural centre of Geneva. We were there in a heatwave, and without air conditioning the room was almost unbearably hot. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was adequate

We found our way easily on foot to the hotel from the train station, even on a hot day. The welcome was warm and genuine. Happy to talk in English and French. Our room was quite small and the ensuite bathroom a prefitted capsule that contained all we needed. We had a communal lounge area on our floor so plenty... More

Stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was decent, albeit it can be crowded in the restaurant area. The location is great - approx. 20 minutes walk away from the main train station or the lakefront. Will stay here again!

Geneva isnt the cheapest place in the world. So this place was a good find, very basic, but clean and in a good part of town, Check out the black pizzas from next door! And the RED eggs we had for breakfast!

This hotel is like a Swiss chalet. The staff are very friendly and the buffet style breakfast is more than adequate. The single rooms are fairly small and somewhat noisy as the hotel is surrounded with busy roads. But the location is great! It is near the train station and within easy walking distance of most downtown areas. The room... More

This is not an expansive and lavish hotel. It is very tightly packed in with equally small rooms. However everything is very clean, precise and quaint. The staff are very helpful and the location is ideal with just a short walk from the train station. Geneva is small anyway, so everything is within walking distance despite being outside the centre... More

Old town charm, but fast internet and great location-making this a great spot for the business traveller on a budget. Wifi connection was strong everywhere in the hotel, and public transportation stops right outside the front door, making it convenient to get anywhere. Or if you don't use public transportation, the front desk staff are happy to call you a... More

Very close to the train station this small hotel is a good bargain. The rooms are small, but clean, quiet and nice decorated. The wi fi is very fast and the beds are nice but with too soft pillows. The staff is polite.
