Wanted a room by the lake

The hotel is okay. It was close to the train and the lake. I wanted to visit with a friend you lives on the other side of the lake that evening and it was only a 10 minute walk across the bridge. The hotel is a little dated which makes it nice. There is no air conditioning but it was still bearable. I would likely stay there again if I return.

Small anonymous hotel

Very near the centre, small room, small bed, pretty much anonymous place, fair value, rally good hearty breakfast, for 3 day stay is not bad.

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient!

The hotel was very conveniently located, the room that i stayed in was a single room but even then it was spacious enough with a nice comfortable bed with a clean and good bathroom! So great place to stay in for singles and for people with families.

Good value for money

centrally located, 5 mins from train station. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had a simple room but all you need even extras I didn't expect, like slippers. Breakfast also basic and you fetch everything from the buffet but you get enough and healthy stuff like fruit also.

City hotel

Hotel located in the city centre, which was handy to train station & lake, but conversely was extremely difficult to get to by car - one way streets and lack of parking were a real nightmare. Staff were helpful & friendly. Breakfast was pretty average. Cost of hotel, like everything in Switzerland is expensive. Switzerland is a beautiful country, but the high cost of everything (hotels, fuel, meals, attractions) was a real sour note for our trip.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't stay in the city centre, as it is too congested & noisy. Stay a little further out and catch the good public transport system into the city.

good budget hotel in central city

I was in Geneva on conference and stayed in the Excelsior. It is a clean room with basic facilities (no tea or coffee making facilities in the room). It is centrally located and has a shopping center next door. Getting around is easy with the free transport card. Staff are friendly. Easy to get to and from airport via bus or train.

Can be better

Pros: location, breakfast included Cons: Like other review said. No AC in the room. Poor sound isolation (I heard a guy snoring next door one day). Desk and chair are small and uncomfortable. No coffee brewer in the room.
