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 location, good if you can get for a decent price

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The location doesn't get any better, practically touching the train station but with sound proof rooms so you can barely hear the train. I managed to get this hotel for only $140 a night with prepaid. I think that is a fantastic deal in Geneva. One major complaint: the Wi-Fi only worked 3 hours of the 48 that I was there. Front desk staff played ignorant when I told them they need to re-set the router. So, if internet works, it's a decent hotel. If the internet isn't working, don't expect them to be able to fix it.

Extra lay-over while en-route to the airport

Some planes leave the airport at 6:30 am. There are trains from Geneva at 5:17 and 5:41. I find that a hotel in Geneva is more reliable than one at the airport - and often more affordable, especially in times of well known trade shows such as the Salon de l'Auto! Hotel Cornavin is not in the greatest neighborhood but there are a variety of Brasseries, Pubs in the area. I particularly enjoyed a great Italian restaurant on a corner almost in front of the hotel. Fantastic food and lively, distinguished ambiance.

Great hotel in Geneva

We only picked this hotel because we were coming in on a late train and didn't want to be looking for our hotel late at night,but it ended up being a great location. The room was spotless and the beds comfortable. For the price we paid and it being Switzerland, I think it was a great deal and very enjoyable. They let us check out late and bumped us up to a higher floor. Rooms really quiet which is nice. I would recommend it for sure.

Location, location, location!

A perfectly situated hotel, located directly beside the train station. Easy to get to from the airport by train and only about a 5 minute walk from the lake. Lot`s of restaurants and shops are also within walking distance, however we did find it hard to find anything reasonably priced. Be prepared to spend money on food. The room itself was quite modern and clean. I would recommend a room on the higher floors as the view was much better. Thankfully wifi was also provided free of charge, a plus! All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

very pleased

with Hotel Cornavin. Location could not be better for transport connections and there are a variety of affordable restaurants nearby. Geneva can be a very pricey city, but I found good Thai, Vietnamese, and North African cafes with reasonable prices as well as the food in some nearby bars. Staff was friendly and noise was not an issue.

Good location, but needs to work on some detail

Pros: Location, cost, style Cons: you can't turn on the bathroom light without turning on the bedroom lights. This is problematic for the middle of the night bathroom trips. Also, the evening concierge is no good. The first night, they told us that breakfast was included in the room charges; at check out they told us that this was not correct. Then, they had difficulty recommending any fondue places to eat. He gave us a card for a place saying that he "didn't know much about it, except that it was close...." Not a very good recommnedation, if you ask me. All in all, though, it was a decent place to stay.

Good for informal small meetings, tourism

We used this hotel for a small business gathering. I would characterize it as a better than modest hotel, with good service, superb location, god breakfasts n a beautiful breakfast room. Prices are modest by Geneva standards unless there is a large UN function in town. IIt only serves breakfast, but it is surrounded by a variety of places to eat.
