Central Geneva hotel with unique swinging appeal

Hotel Cornavin offers an idyllic location in central Geneva, just a few steps away from the train station. This chic hotel offers 164 comfortable rooms furnished with modern design. With its convenient location in the city, guests can easily reach banks, commercial establishments not to mention the scenic lake nearby. The hotel also features a large pendulum hanging from the ninth floor and swings right at the ground floor of the property. Guests enjoy a panoramic view of Geneva while enjoying breakfast on site.

Highlights
  • Central location within 15 minutes of most top attractions
  • Four panoramic rooms and breakfast room offer views of Geneva and Jet d'Eau
  • One of the world's largest pendulums
Rooms

All 162 rooms include a safe, mini-bar, television, Wi-Fi access and large closets. Rooms were renovated in 2006 in streamlined minimalist style fitting the smaller spaces. Curved mirrors and a glass partition around the bathroom add fun and funky design elements. Rooms facing the train station have soundproof windows but guests still might want to request a room on the other side of the hotel. Four panoramic rooms provide views of the city and Jet d'Eau.

Hotel Cornavin

This hotel is perfectly situated in the city center, adjacent to the central train station. Less than 10 minutes from the airport. The hotel provides a free rail/bus pass for Geneva. Buffett breakfast is very good.

Really nice place with great value

Everything was really nice here, the room was spacious, had a great view, and was affordable. The wireless service was top notch and the staff was super helpful. The location is awesome (right at the train station) so it is central to the town, would highly recommend.

Overpriced 2 star

This search engine has this hotel rated as a 4 star but the hotels website rates it as a 2 star. It's overpriced, AC doesn't work well and the staff are rude and unhelpful.
