“Great hotel in an interesting area”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

I can second all the reviews that said the place was a relaxed, well-run establishment: clean, well-appointed, good to excellent service especially the guys on the front desk. Just remember to get the staff to show you how the A/C works before you go to bed - our room was really, really hot. But we couldn't bring ourselves to open the windows. Which takes me to the next part of my review - the location. During daytime, its environs are good with the Cafe des Arts across the road and shops easily accessible. However, we stayed at the hotel on the weekend of New Years Eve and at night time it was another story. Seriously scary noises all night, every night. I'm told Geneva has a problem with drug users - like any city - but they must have all been in the Paquis area that weekend. Hence we couldn't open our windows at night! So that's why I didn't rate sleep quality at 5. But going by the reviews I might stay here again maybe not on a weekend like NYE?

Room Tip: Top floor rooms because the floors are wooden. Our kids stayed in a room on a lower level and could...

We stayed in Geneva during the International Motor Show (but this was not the purpose of our visit!!) and as a result, the hotel was very expensive! BUT, Geneva is obviously and expensive place, so you have to put the prices aside! That said, it was good value for money compared to other prices online for other hotels.

Eastwest was in a nice residential neighborhood which was a short walk from the train station and minutes from the old town and lake front. Hotels in Geneva provide visitors with a free transport card, but to be honest we didn't need it as we walked everywhere! We only used it for our return journey to the airport (5 mins on the train!)

Our courtyard room was lovely and the bed was super comfortable. The shower was great with the rain shower head and loads of hot water. Steam free mirror is always great.

We had breakfast included in our rate, but otherwise I would buy breakfast at the hotel. (70 CHF for 2 - about €50) which is very expensive for some coffee and croissants - even in Geneva!

We didn't eat dinner there so I can't say about the food. Both nights we ate in a lovely little restaurant nearby called La-Bergerie-Du-Gruyère - which I would recommend for good local food and wine! It was hard to find a decent place nearby for late night drinks and we ended up in nearby English and Irish bars which wouldn't usually be my thing, but the beer was good!

The hotel was a handy base for exploring the old town and lake. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the courtyardso was very quite.

This hotel is well priced for Geneva and as boutique hotels go, this is right up there. Only a ten minute walk to the railway station I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night only while traveling through Geneva. This is a very nice hotel in an OK location.
The rooms are large, stylish, and well equipped. Wifi works well. Even a room facing the street was quiet. The staff was friendly.
The location is OK. It is only a few minutes walk from the train station and airport bus. The immediate surroundings are not particularly nice, but it is only a block or two from the lake and a short walk to the old town.
