great location

if you fly into Geneva, you can get a free rail voucher from a dispenser in baggage claim for travel into town (train will say Lausanne, the first stop is Gare Cornavin). Exit the Cornavin rail station and immediately to your right is the Hotel Cornavin. Thankfully, Swiss railroads are pretty quiet although the one downside of the hotel is the amount of noise a neighbor can generate. okay value breakfast (for Geneva) at 19 Swiss francs and it starts at 6:00 am, very friendly staff who are multi-lingual. Computer/internet is not free, but they were very nice in not charging when I had connectivity issues.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

you only have to get a block away from Rue Mont Blanc for decent value restaurants--there's no need to pay $50 for an average steak with fries. Try the North African, Thai, Vietnamese or other ethnic places.

Great location

We stayed here one night before our flight out of Geneva. The location was perfect as we arrived by train and walked less than a block to the hotel. The hotel provided a bus pass that served as free transit on the #5 bus to the airport the next morning (fast 15" ride on a Saturday - may take longer during the work week). The exterior appearance belies the modern room facilities. The room was clean and spacious; the staff was pleasant and helpful.

Convenient, nice room

Next door to train station, good sized room and fairly quiet although it faced the street. I would stay there again for business in downtown Geneva. There are several trains per hour to the airport, a short convenient ride.

Very nice hotel

I have stayed at a lot of smaller hotels in central Geneva, and this was just about the best for the same price or less than others that are much more antiquated. Desk service was friendly and efficient. Room was clean and modern.

Good Place in the middle of the city

I was walking thru the city and there were a lot f restaurants and Bars. The region of the station as under construction, so it wasn't really beautiful in the area directly.

Excellent Hotel for the price

Excellent hotel for the price. Even the cheaper rooms are spacious, modern and clean, very clean. Surprisingly, even next to the train station the rooms are well soundproofed.

Hotel Cornavin next to train station

First of all the hotel was impossible to get to by car. It would be perfect for people who ride the train. When we checked in the lady at the front desk was pleasant until we asked more question. We asked if we could just park outside and she said no and that we need to find other parkin; when it clearly marked Hotel Cornavin guest parking in front. We had to pay at the garage. The room its was quite interesting and lovely. We had view of the church and the whole city. The bathroom was all glass. Love the clean tub. The bed was a little hard to sleep. If you have time skip the breakfast at the Hotel and find somewhere else to eat. The breakfast buffet was small (limited choices) for $19. But overall it's good for business people or people who wants to be next to the train station.
