Central Geneva hotel with unique swinging appeal

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.

Good value

Great hotel. Hard to find, it is on the lake side of the train station. If you are driving and miss it, the local roads are a nightmare if you need to turn around. No on site parking, but you can park in the train station underground lot for 14fr. with discount coupon from hotel.

Great place, conveniently located

This hotel was very comfortable...we had an excellent view (not all rooms have them) and were quite comfortable. Updated decor, good shower, very quiet with the window shut (amazing sound proofing). The neighborhood is not "quaint", but it is close to quaint neighborhoods and you get a free bus pass. Bus stops are literally right across the street, and there is a tunnel to the train station that was really nice when it rained one morning and we did not want to pay for the expensive breakfast...ducked in to the train station and had an excellent croissant/café/jus d'orange at one of the many little shops underground with the locals. I would definitely stay here again...staff is very nice. And Tintin stayed here too so that is cool...

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.

great stay

We had a great stay at the Hotel Cornavin. We came in and left on the train, and this hotel could not be any more convenient for train travelers. It literally sits across the street from the train station. That said, it was not at all noisy. We found the hotel perfect with regards to our needs: we were seeking a clean, comfortable, safe, and budget friendly place to use as a base on a 1-night stay to explore Geneva. Would pick this hotel again in an instant.

Excellent well located hotel

Convenient, great breakfast room with view. Room simple but practical some have great views on the lake on the upper floors. Beware prices vary tremendously depending on the week. Could not beat the location at Cornavin easy access everywhere.

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.

Very Disappointed

we chose this hotel because it advertised that there was an airport service, well there wasn't! We had to pay a taxi to the airport, in fact 2 because our international flight times were that different! the staff were abrupt and not willing to do as was advertised.

Great location!

Location is great, so close to the railway station which leads to the airport, yet close enough to the centre and the lake.
