Situated a short distance from the Quai du Mont Blanc, the Hotel Cristal Design offers guests a comfortable and value for money stay in the centre of Geneva. The modern three star hotel is just a short walk from the shores of Lake Geneva, Place Neuve with its Grand Theatre, or opera house, and the pretty Jardin Anglais.

very well recommended, however and providing;

Comfort, location, cleanliness almost perfect, however I must direct the hotel management to one of the staff member, which I believe he is an Asian origin, as he refused to give his name, any way he was on the morning shift on Monday the 6th of Oct. 2014, as he was very rude, surely needs to be trained on customer satisfaction. As I was under the impression, that the hotel provide a shuttle bus, he said this only 3 stars hotel and we don't have a shuttle bus, then he threaten by keeping waiting for 5 hours before giving ma a room, so I said you are the boos and I will say nothing more, please give a room, as I had no choice but to be under his mercy. Next day I met the supervisor and he was very apologetic and gave me a free break fast. It would have been perfect trip, if I had a good start.

Great location

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.

great location, creative design, staff attention not so warm

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!
