very clean, quiet, great location

The previous reviews of this hotels were somewhat uneven. However, I may recommend it without hesitation. If you are on a business trip in Geneva or just exploring, this hotel will work for you very well. I was somewhat concerned about the level of noise right near the railway station. Noise was not a problem AT ALL, at least on my fifth floor. The windows are double and well sound proofed. I also did not hear anything from behind the wall or from above. The room and bathroom are on a small side,but functional and not super small. Bathroom is extremely clean and everything worked. Internet was not the fastest, but worked reliably (again, on my 5th floor). TV not huge, but adequate. Fridge is a convenient. The only thing that was absent is an iron, but they have a room for that if needed. Breakfast is not included, but for the price it is fully acceptable. There are numerous cafe around, that includes a Starbucks very close. Location is excellent to access different parts of the city. Bus stops of several bus lines are right next to the hotel doors. Bed was comfortable and air conditioning worked, too. It does not go all the way to the freezing temperatures like in the U.S., but it was nice and cool.My colleagues paid more for their hotel, but it sounded like it was significantly worse. A very good value in this price range in Geneva which is a very expensive city overall.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Only breakfast is served at the hotel (make sure you inquire whether your rate is inclusive of breakfast, it can get pretty expensive paying for this daily). Other dining is all within walking distance from the hotel.

Incredible value for Geneva

Geneva has to be the most expensive city in Europe, and this "just like new" hotel offers incredible value at any price less than $200 a night. Front desk staff is efficient and polite, but cool and oddly impersonal, even for Switzerland. You cannot hear the trains coming and going through the adjoining station if your windows are closed, but if your windows were open this could be a problem.

Use your free Geneva metro card to escape the ludicrous restaurant prices in urban Geneva. The French side of Lake Leman offers good food at sensible prices.

Great hotel for a weekend

Stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. This hotel was clean, and the service was nice. The location was great, right next to the train, tram and bus hub, so getting around was very easy. Our room had a view of the lake where you could see the jet d'eau and, on a clear day, even Monte Blanc. It was a gorgeous view that made the weekend. Highly recommended.

Good Location

Room was good but with all the traffic around the hotel it was somewhat noisy. Room was comfortable and clean. One of the most important things to me and I am sure others is the internet and we could not get service in the room at all. had to go into the lobby to get any service and shared space with everyone else in the hotel.

Clean and Convenient

I had an early flight out of Geneva. This hotels proximity to the train station along with an included one day transportation ticket for all public services (rail, bus, and tram) provided me with an exceptionally convenient way to enjoy an evening in the bustling shopping area of the central district before an early flight from the airport. The staff was professional and the business amenities exceptional. The décor is very modern and the clean Euro style complimented the experience. A mini fridge is available in the room with plenty of space for your personal travel snacks and beverages. I did not stay for the breakfast (not included) though the restaurant's 'Panoramic View" and location on the eighth floor allowed for a beautiful view of the city, lake (fountain too) and French Alps in the background.

Go underground! The train station and bus/tram depot is located on top of a huge mall that can be accessed by escalators. You name it...they got it!
