Great Location, Comfy Bed

Would recommend Fri, Aug 27, 2010
We were only there for one night and chose this hotel because of price and proximity to the train station. I traveled with two children- 3 and 7. The staff answered my numerous questions about swimming, trasportation, safety, etc. They were friendly and helpful (though didn't know all the answers to my million and one questions). The beds were comfortable and the room (specfically the bathroom) quite large by European standards. The only thing that would have been better would to have been in a room that wasn't facing the train station. However, the sound of the trains didn't continue all night and it probably wouldn't bother someone who is habituated to city life. Overall, I felt we got a very good deal for the room (which, though next to the train tracks, also afforeded a nice view of the tops of buildings and the Alps). We didn't need internet or business services so I cannot comment on those areas. However, warning to families traveling with children, although the channels above 21 are "pay", ask the front desk to block all stations above 21 as, even though you have to pay for them, you can see them before you pay! My 7 year old was flipping through channels looking for cartoons and got his first glimpse of in appropriate programming. The hotel itself isn't amazing, but the overall experience was very good.

Attractions

Take a boat "bus". It is included in your free transportation ticket. Also, Geneva isn't nearly as big as it looks on the map. You walk to a lot of the major tourist attractions. If it's summertime, walk to the Bains des Paquis and jump in the lake! It's cold, but if you go in the afternoon/evening, they have live music, drinks and food. The ambiance is worth the 2 franc entry fee.

BE CAREFUL

Would recommend Mon, Aug 2, 2010
The only benefit to this hotel is if you need to catch an early train the next morning and dont want to much fuss getting to the station. The station is literally right next door. Even on that basis though I would thoroughly recommend to stay away. The hotel is listed as 4 stars but to be fair it should really be listed as 2-3. The problems were: - Beds and pillows are a disgrace - Rooms are old and ragged with dirty carpets - Shower gel and shampoo is of a very poor quality i.e. bring your own - Staff stole an item that I left behind

Convenient location and great service

Would recommend Tue, Jul 27, 2010
This was a beautiful weekend in Geneva. Weather was clear and warm - always helps. This was a wrap-up to my overall week-long vacation. Lake cruises are reasonable, but lake-shore activities (expansive kiddie-oriented amusements parks) are annoying. Great to visit the 'old city' and its history along with chess games along the promenade.

Dining

Some of the more expensive restaurants are over-rated and open too late for convenience. Open-air cafes and dining service seemed more appropriate to me.

ok

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 25, 2010
I went to this hotel with minimal expectations beyond its ideal location a block from the train station, and those expectations were fulfilled but not exceeded. I didn't take advantage of the "fitness center" in the basement and only ate the mediocre free breakfast once, so the only amenity that mattered to me was the air conditioning, which worked. Relative to my other options, the hotel was a decent value.

Would recommend Mon, May 31, 2010
The room was small, but that was expected and was fine. Great use of space for a small room, though. Location is super-convenient, but being close to the train station means some noise if the window is open. Beautiful view from 8th-floor breakfast room. Breakfast is basic but fine: cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads, hard-boiled eggs -- no scrambled eggs, no mueslix. Would stay there again.
