Overnight stay in Geneva following a week's skiing

We had been skiing with friends for the week and had decided to have one night in Geneva rather than fly home with them. So we arrived with skis, boots and personal bags. In all 8 pieces of luggage. As we were not leaving the hotel until 14:00 the next day, and check out was at 12:00, they made a bit of a fuss about us leaving the our baggage in their luggage room suggesting we would fill it up! Common sense eventually prevailed, and their manner improved, the next morning and we were given access to an unused conference suite. The room was non-smoking but people had, at some point recently, been smoking as the odour hung in the air. The management not realising this suggests a lack of interest. But overall it was very comfortable and the breakfast was reasonable value at CHF19 each.

Top value for money

What a great hotel. Just needed a place to stay for one night while passing through geneve but this hotel was MUCH more than a railway hotel! Staff friendly, welcoming and helpful, rooms modern and well designed and the million euro view from the 8th floor (city side) didn't cost anything close to that price. Would certainly stay there again.

Close to everything

A clean hotel with spacious rooms and within walking distance to everything. Good bars, cafés and restaurants nearby and free public transport during our stay. Friendly, helpful staff . Breakfast not included but for SF19 was adequate and comparable to the prices we paid at Starbucks the next day.

Good catch-all hotel: budget, business etc.. location

I had a comfortable night in a spacious room on the 4th floor .... tip here: ask for a room on the higher floors to get views. Being Geneva and Switzerland food is expensive so I skipped the CHF 19 breakfast, however the 8th breafast room has the best view! An underused facility IMO. Fridge in room is good (read essential) for Geneva and supermarket is not far away. Geneva does have some good "Artisanal" Beer Bars/Pubs: the Lord Nelson - Cafe de Mollard and one on the strip near the hotel down from the Britannia. Save your CHF for that! Would be an excellent business hotel option to save on 5***** prices.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat at Dept store cafeteria lunch buffets. Use the fridge in room for dinner (buy food at the supermarket). Save your money for going out and getting a quality beer later (CHF 7 to 9 for a half-litre glass) ...

Business as usual

I was very impressed with the value of this hotel for the couple of days that I stayed there. The room was extremely quiet. The rate did not include breakfast, but the room was very nice and amenities were all there. Internet did not work well though. There is a fitness center which was basic, but included a "co-ed" sauna.

Convenient & Comfy

Situated next to train station and very convenient and double glazed windows made the room completely quiet. Very spacious and comfortable room. Centrally located so we could walk to many attractions including Jet d'Eau and old town. Many dining options nearby.

Perfect for what we required

Ideal location, hard to drop the bags off from the car but we parked in the public car park then and so just had a 1 minute walk to the hotel, which was perfect for us! Cheers

Good value for the money

Highlight is the location. In front of the Cornavin station, it facilitates any connections and public transportancion is easily reached. Gimnasio, though small, is very good, with excellent equipments; Breakfast is excellent, price competitive and the view is wonderful. Room comfort can be improved by installing a smal forniture over which guests can place their lugage. I needed to leave mine in the floor.
