The Hotel Cornavin enjoys an ideal and quiet location in the very heart of Geneva, just 1 minute from the train station and 5 minutes from the international organisations. The 164 rooms propose a modern design and are very comfortable. Surrounded by banks and shops, the hotel is also very close to the lake and is one of the most modern hotels in town. A special feature is the worlds largest pendulum - it hangs from the ninth floor and swings right down to the ground floor in the lobby of the hotel. The total length is 30.02 metres.The panoramic view of Geneva from the breakfast floor (eighth floor) is particularly impressive. Public parking is available 50 metres away from the Conravin Geneve hotel.

Comfortable and Great Location

The best feature of this hotel is it's location. You are steps from the train station, and city public transportation abounds within a block. The lake is a short walk away, and shopping is too. The hotel serves only breakfast in its restaurant, and it's bar is tiny and has only a basic selection, so you pretty much have to rely on nearby restaurants for meals. But the restuarant has spectacular views, and it would be worth the approx. $30 it charges to eat breakfast there. The rooms are very comfortable, and have a nice coffee service; the hotel staff is very helpful.

Several coffee shops are nearby the hotel, but don't be suprised if a bevy of balck capped chickadees invade and beg for crumbs from you - they are part of the Geneva scene.

Great Hotel to Go Places

We intended to visit nearby places in and out of Geneva during our stay and tried to pick the hotel that would be located on one hand at a spot nearby public transportation hub (for Switzerland, think trains; for Geneva trams and sometimes buses, given it is free of charge for travelers staying at most hotels) on the other hand located in a pleasant neighborhood close to the center of the town. We wound up booking Cornavin hotel, and it proved to be an excellent fit for our purposes. It was a breeze to get anywhere and hotel's double windows and sound proof walls provided for a totally quiet room (even though it overlooked the train station). Certainly not a romantic or a cozy getaway place, but a clean and well maintained hotel at an excellent location with a beautiful breakfast room (overlooking the city and surrounding area) and mediocre to poor breakfast itself (unless a continental breakfast for 20 francs is what you want)

Nice Hotel, Convenient

Had to stay in GNVA for one night and next to the train station for easy access to airport train. Hotel Cornavin was very nice and right next to the train station. The rooms are new and clean and are a great value. I strongly recommend the hotel if you're looking for a cheap, convenient and nice room.

Wonderful trip

We took the complimentary train from the airport to station, then crossed the street to the hotel. We arrived at 8AM and asked to check in early, and the staff was happy to oblige. They had a record of our request for a room on an upper floor, facing the street side instead of the train side, and none of the rooms available at 8AM met our criteria. We decided to hold out for a better room. A few hours later we returned and received room 909 on the top floor, which exceeded expectations. The expansive windows showed a beautiful view, the room was very clean, quiet, comfortable and large in size by European standards. The beds were also very comfortable, my back felt great. The only real room annoyance was that the whole room lights up when the bathroom light is on (glass-type walls), the bathroom door doesn't shut fully, and the free internet access was sometimes slow although these were minor annoyances in an otherwise terrific stay. We also loved the location: staying across the street from the train station was very convenient, and also within walking distance of most of the things we wished to see. We also used the included transit passes to ride the bus. Given the discounted price we paid, the value of this room was excellent.

Does the job

Great location adjacent to the Central Station so easy access from the airport (train is free). Hotel has limited facilities but there are many places to eat within 5 minutes walk. Restaurant in the hotel is only for breakfast and there is no hotel bar. All that said, the rooms were simple, comfortable and good value. I would stay again.

If you are not bothered by the presence of street hookers, there are loads of great ethnic eateries in the Red Light District
