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.

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.

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.

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.
