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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

quality and price both excellent

One small convenience was very nice -- the free transit pass for the duration of the stay in Geneva. This made it so EASY to get around it was an excellent addition to my stay. I had a ride on La Muette as well as the trams.
