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.

Perfect Location

If you're looking for a convenient place to stay that is close to almost every bus route in Geneva, this is your best bet. It's literally across the street from the main Geneva train station. The hotel will give you a free transportation card good for travel on any bus or tram in Geneva. Room was comfortable and clean, stayed on the 8th floor (panoramic views) where the restaurant was as well. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Wifi is 20CH for 7 days which is a bit much considering most hotels include that (this is the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars).

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you plan on visiting CERN and want a guided tour you would have to reserve your spot (via their website) way in advance.

At Central Rail Station

A great location for getting around Geneva and the surrounding countryside. There are shopping and restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean but ordinary. There were 3 twin beds in each of our rooms, so this seems to be a hotel for groups (skiers?) who want easy access to the train. Great for families on a budget.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Walk out of the train station, turn right and you will see the hotel! Can't get any better than that. All the bus and trams run right outside the hotel too. There are shops all around, lots of places to eat BUT everything in Geneva is VERY expensive!! A meal is 2-3 times what you'd pay in US. No cheap food nearby except maybe McDonald's but we didn't look at their prices.
