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.

Incredible value for Geneva

Geneva has to be the most expensive city in Europe, and this "just like new" hotel offers incredible value at any price less than $200 a night. Front desk staff is efficient and polite, but cool and oddly impersonal, even for Switzerland. You cannot hear the trains coming and going through the adjoining station if your windows are closed, but if your windows were open this could be a problem.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Use your free Geneva metro card to escape the ludicrous restaurant prices in urban Geneva. The French side of Lake Leman offers good food at sensible prices.

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.
