The hotel is quite nice, while it claims to be 4 star......... it's still a little expensive for what you get, but that's Geneva. It's well situated being close to the train station and very central if your on business. The hotel is however close to the Red Light area of the city, and although no-one hassles you, lady guests...

Hotel is situated in the red light district, arrived on foot about 9pm feeling very uneasy and wished I had got a taxi. Very grateful to see the hotel entrance only to be greeted by mess strewn down the stairs and no one seeming to care about cleaning it up. Staff friendly and polite when checking in but not sure...

This is a standard well-run Novatel with a nice bfast. I was actually able to get a decent price so I can't complain on value. It is definitely at the edge of a sketchy area and some would be uncomfortable walking there in the evening. If it is priced well it is a good choice.

This place is quite nice, while still rather expensive, and well situated if your business destination is around Place des Alpes or Main Station. Rooms are large and properly furnished, typical Novotel style - ie style-less...

Conveniently close to the main train station makes it ease to get to. The staff were friendly and helpful offering a free transport token and the use of internet services during my stay. The place was clean and quiet and I very much appreciated the late gym and spa hours! An all round great experience!

It's a great hotel, nothing too fancy, but nice enough, located on the same side of the lake as the Four Seasons and the Beau Rivage. It's got a decent gym in the basement and a breakfast that while ok, is nothing remarkable. The staff has always been extremely friends and outgoing. Just a few blocks away is the famous...

As others have pointed out it is in the middle of the red light district. While they stayed at the back of the hotel the security staff kept then away from the front & side of the hotel. It is very pricy The breakfast buffet was pretty good, the staff was very helpful. Room was small but it's a European...

This hotel is a typical tourist trap which makes money with coach loads of tourists, Check-in was a joke - staff are not motivated and don't care.
