    The hotel, overlooking lake and city, was pleasant. There was a friendly lady, with fantastic english, at the front, waiting to greet us. She sent us up to our huge room, and we were able to get around the city easily from our location. And on top of that, the complimentary breakfast was nice.

    The bathroom is tiny and it is in a medical building with a sketchy elevator. The room was old - not the classic Geneva old, just a little run down and unkempt.

    Close to the city center

    The noise and the shower is primitive and not very functional. Very small bathroom

    Location; Parity the price/quality

  • Single
    6.6

    The hotel is very central and close to the railway station. I could see the river from my room. Staff spoke English and were friendly and helpful.

    The room is furnished in a very basic manner and the lighting is dull. There was a kettle and 2 teabags - no coffee or milk. It was clean and it's a shame that the owners haven't made an effort to bring the room to a better basic standard.

    All necesarry services are available, location is near to main station.

    The soundproofing of walls is terrible - I could hear evey move of my neighbours from both sides. It seemed that the walls were made from paper based material!

    the location was very good and they gave every thing they could like free wifi and good breakfast and a nice helping staff

    felt like a dorm with a funny small bathroom a little bit over priced

  • Single

    I needed a central hotel where I could crash and head for meetings. It is fairly priced and has a good location. Nothing fancy, good size room and basics such as free internet in place.

    You get what you pay for.

    Very nice and helpful stuff, absolutely fantastic location, very clean room with beautiful view to the city, the breakfast was really good.

    The only minus was: the mattress was too old and uncomfortable, so I couldn't sleep very well.

    A lovely building, location is great. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

    The bathroom I had was directly in the room, and this is not very convenient. The room was a little bit noisy because ot the traffic.

  • Single
    8.2

    The staff are friendly and helpful, and the building is charming; I had a quiet room with nice view across the Rhone to the mountains. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if ever back in Geneva.

    The bathroom I had was surprisingly small (I almost fell into the shower a few times) but that's just because it's a lovely old building.

    The river view

    the complain is: the level of the hotel ingeneral is not convenint with price rate, it is much expensive than what it satisfy.

    The room was huge, right next to the river!

  • Single
    10.0

    I liked the fact that it was a small family run hotel. The room was nice overlooking the river. It was a great place to run/walk along the river Rhone. It was five minutes from the central station, main shopping areas an close to tram stops that could take you all over the city, as well as easy access to the airport by public transport.
