“Do not stay at this hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

Ive stayed in probably eight different hotels in Geneva - and this is by far the worst. Its well located, but the rooms are awful - badly laid out, uncomfortable, clinical and cooling/heating is pathetic. I was there in summer and it was dreadfully hot with no air-con. The noise if you open the windows is dreadful. Facilities in the room are pathetic and badly thought out. I couldnt wait to leave. All hotels in Geneva are expensive. My work booked this place at a cost of around 180 Swiss francs a night - but for an extra 20-30 francs I know I could have found a much better hotel. My advice - ignore this place and look around.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

This hotel was good for its location, it was opposite the main train station and you could easily walk all around Geneva without too much hassle. The room was very large (it even had a hallway) and the front desk was very friendly and their service was very good. The only problem with the room was that it was very hot and we were travelling in January!!

Nothing fancy, but very nice, very clean place, rooms on the large side and great location next to the train station. About 5 minutes from the river, on the "wrong side" of it (the other side from the good part of town). Still, the price was around 100euro for a double room -- excellent for Geneva. I'd easily go back if I ever had to visit this terribly boring city ever again in the future.

Bernina has a central location opposite the central railway station in Geneva. It is just a five minutes walk down til Lake Geneva, and a 6-7 minutes tram trip up to the UN quarters. This was my second stay at Bernina, and also this time I had a double room with a small balcony, which I liked. There is not much sound when the doors and windows are closed, so noise is not a problem. The standard was OK, but not very modern. But that didn't matter for me, I liked the room, and especially the small balcony. And the price, compared to many other Geneva hotels, was fair. Good value. The breakfast was better now than I remember it some years ago. Back then there were no eggs or any meat, now it had both. All in all a recommendable hotel in Geneva, but it is not very modern or luxurious. But I like it and will come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony, like 209.

Geneva hotels being as expensive as they are, the hotel gives you good value for your money.
Rooms are very simple but clean and not too small.. No bathtub, desk and chair are not too comfortable if you need to work (I did). Mattresses very thin.
Heating (I was there in December) was just fine but not what you would expect - I was cold coming out of the shower.
Excellent location, right across train station (Gare de Cornavin), plenty of bus/tram stops. Walking distance to UN, lakeshore, old city and others.
