We were on a short overnight stay on our way to Copenhagen from Lausanne. This was a great hotel for a short stay - good location being almost at the doorstep of the train station, and a nice walk to Lake Geneva with convenient food and shopping nearby. It is a great hotel if you are planning to spend most of your day out sight-seeing/ shopping. The hotel is nicely and simply designed, comfortable and very well-located.

Loved how close this hotel was to everyhting, its cleanliness and the free transport card they grant you for the lenght of your stay; yet I have to say it all went well until we bumped into one scornful receptionist (did not have any badge with his name but was the one with indian traits) which was there most of our stay. He was very unprofessional in his treatment and responses from the beginning. We stayed four days and he seemed to be annoyed by every request ; he did not hesitate to show discontent and make ironic reproaches... if it wasn't for him we would have given the hotel a 5 star overall rating. Shame!

Designer rooms are small yet well arranged. TV panels could have been bigger. The only set back is no breakfast service.

It was very close to the train station - I bascially walked through the "metro shopping" area and it was there on the left corner as soon as I reached sunlight. EXCELLENT! Only about 15min walk down to Lake Geneva, where you can see Jet d'Eau in front of you. There are street signs everywhere that point you in the right direction of this hotel, which was great! The staff weren't as attentive as I had hoped and security in the main lobby was a little questionable - I left my suitcase in the "large baggage room" (which actually only had enough space for about 10 suitcases) but it didn't even lock and anyone could walk right in off the street, go in the room, and take it without the staff noticing. Other than that, the room was quaint and great for one student.

Situated conveniently very near Rail Station and centre of Geneva. The side road front entrance is on is very untidy. Room at back of hotel looks onto an area where rubbish is collected. It is noisy late evening and early morning. No double glazing. Restaurant area very clean. Good for a short stay.

La rue Pradier où se trouve l'hôtel est très bruyante. Internet sans fil payant. Absence totale de service de la part du personnel ; on a oublié mon réveil le matin de mon départ!!!

WiFi did not work in the room, receptionist could not help but offered access to "business centre" instead. The bathroom was less than optimal, no tub and some of the furnishings were falling apart. Room ok but rather noisy during the weekend. Stayed on 1:st floor towards the back street, avoid that!

Shower over bath too low, unable to use unless on knees, I am only 5ft tall!!! Toilet seat and cover very poor quality and did not stay up. TV remote control digits worn off. Mini bar very expensive, consequently did not use it. Bed and bedding comfortable. Towels ok. Breakfast good. Would not stay longer than 1 night.

Location is the one thing this place has going for it, right by the train station. It's a bit harder to find than the map suggests, though, as it's off the main thoroughfare. Street noise is a problem in the early morning (I was on the third floor).

I was as pleased with this hotel as I was on two previous occasions. I do have two comments: 1.On this occasion and on a previous one I requested a room facing the square (which is quiet). The first time I was given a room on the noisy street but the manager was able to change it for me. this time they were not able to change it. 2. I found the beds uncomfortable. The mattrasses are thin and are on solid base. I think they should look into providing more comfortable box-springs and mattrasses.

Hotel Rooms are actually really nice but the location is the worst that I have ever stayed in. Right near clubs and pubs. The noice was really bad as all the young kids hang around outside the hotel after leaving the clubs. Did not get to sleep until 5am - is that bad. I would not recommend this hotel if you have to be up early or want a good nights sleep.

the day we arrived , instaed of a double bed we were allocated with a twin bed.(it was my honey moon trip and i mentioned it specifically).I got a ague and rather nonsense excuse. cleaner is off today so a double bed could not be arranged Internet was so slow that i had to go outside just to check my mails the staff at the reception did.nt know anything how to fix that problem. I called interlaken hotel lady at reception told me that we can not check in before 5;00 pm . check in time was form 7-11 am we had to stay at Geneve till 3;00 pm . next daythe electricity shut down.. it took about an hour and a second reminder to fix it. I dont know how this would be percieved by hotel club staff and wheather any good gestures or compensation can be offered but it just ruined our holiday .I however suffered her sweet and sour comments about that surprise.I hope to get a responce. Many thanks

I would use this hotel again when on business in Geneva. The room/en suite is perfectly adequate, the pillows excellent and the duvet soft. For the price, the location and room facilities represent excellent value for money. There are plenty of restaurants all around and I was able to walk to my appointments.

The room was compact but large enough. The entrance foyer was rather bleak but service was very friendly. The location, so close to the station, was excellent for weary travellers with luggage.
