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.

Convenient and clean - great view from roof

We had a fine time here. It was relatively inexpensive (for Geneva), and the cons are thinnish walls and a relatively basic room (two twin beds, but pushed next to each other). The bathroom was quite nice however, the Internet was free, and the glass-enclosed two-floor top floor is beautiful. The staff was excellent and friendly from check-in to making some local suggestions and calling a cab quickly in the morning. The true perk is the extreme convenience to the train station (across the street) and thus the airport (10 minutes by trains there). MUCH cheaper than a cab to the airport (US$50). Also close to a great low-key neighborhood gay bar (Le Phare) - recommended.

Nice but internet is weak

The rooms are attractive and simple, bedding is good quality, and bathroom was modern. Nice breakfast with view from 8th fl. But I could not get on internet through wireless and no one could help me (the re-direct of URL to login wasn't working on my computer due to security settings). This was a major problem. When I finally got a tech-savvy young person to get URL using his cell phone, it worked but was slow. Expensive given this problem.

Extremely convenient

An excellent hotel near the main train station in Geneva. A great base for visitors. Rooms are big and quiet. I would definitely stay again.

Great central location

Being right next to the train station was great. Only a few minutes train journey to the airport, trams outside the front door and most of the sights of Geneva in walking distance. The rooms were clean and of a good size. Would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a central location.

Great location, affordable and very clean

We were surprise this hotel did not get more good reviews. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The room was stylish and clean and the location was right next to the train station but was not loud and very convenient.

Early Spring in Geneva

We had a lovely room with a view of the alps. Being next to the train station made travel all over Geneva super easy, yet our room was quiet. Breakfast was very expensive but the small refrigerator in the room worked well to store snack food. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
