“a great stay at Hotel Bel'Esperance”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

This hotel was recommended by my sister who lived for 27 years in Geneva. She would stay there when her flat was being decorated.
This is a lovely little, central hotel. Nice clean rooms in a fantastic location - you are between the Cathedral and the jet d'eau. Good breakfast and nice areas to sit and read, play piano, surf the net. Lovely roof terrace and the bonus of having a very clean and well equipped guest's kitchen for cooking when not eating out.
Super staff. We stay here whenever visiting Geneva. Prices are very reasonable for this city.

Room Tip: its nice to ask for a balcony room.

Normally I would say that the rooms in this hotel were too small but Geneva is very expensive and really and truly this place is great value. Location wise it would be hard to beat this place. It's bang in the middle of the old town and 50 metres from shopping street. Place de four Bourg is just 100 metres away and is a lovely place to while away the day with a nice glass of something cold and wet. Ok the rooms are like little cells but remember where you are and the prices that are charged elsewhere! its very clean as well and has free internet

The hotel was exactly what my wife and I needed after a long flight to Europe. We arrived at 8.00am and were kindly offered to leave our bags for a few hours prior to an early check in. The rooms are clean, good bathroom and shower. Beds are nice and firm with all linen clean. Breakfast is great. The location is excellent with good cafes and restaurants nearby.
Geneva/Switzerland is an expensive place, so it is good value. Will be back if rooms are available. Keep up the good work Bel Esperance !

Reviewed 24 April 2012

This hotel is a real find. The staff are helpful and friendly. It's perfectly situated with the lake front, shops and old town all only minutes away. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good bathroom facilities. Plenty of hot water day and night. I have a toddler so having a kitchen was pretty much essential. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Reviewed 22 April 2012

Although everything is expensive in Geneva, this was good value. Very clean place in a great location (at base of historic old city and minutes walk to the lake). The accomodations are plain, to be sure, but comfortable. Breakfast was in a nice room with the best selection we encountered in our week in Switzerland.
