Great location, great price, great hotel

The place was great! Can't beat the location or cleanliness! I wanted to stay there on my last night (3 weeks later) before I had to fly home, but when I called, I was told the room would be $281 francs. Considering i had paid about $109 the first time, I thought this a bit extreme! But...apparently there was something going on that week as all hotels had suddenly gone psycho super expensive! And while it was well worth $109, I wasn't about to pay $281! Plus, breakfast, on their awesome breakfast floor, is $30 extra!!! Sorry - but who can eat that much bacon and eggs to make that worthwhile! I would stay there again - most definitely - but for under $200 only, regardless of what's going on in town that made the rates go up everywhere!

Good Location

Room was good but with all the traffic around the hotel it was somewhat noisy. Room was comfortable and clean. One of the most important things to me and I am sure others is the internet and we could not get service in the room at all. had to go into the lobby to get any service and shared space with everyone else in the hotel.

Convenient, very solid hotel in center of city

I've stayed at the Cornavin on and off for the last 10 years. The location cannot be beaten - next to the train station, the central bus and tram station, and lots of outdoor cafes as well as an underground shopping center. The rooms are modern, small, and quite functional; the wi-fi bandwidth is excellent. Breakfast in the panoramic room on the 8th floor offers one of the best views of Geneva. Price fluctuates with season and demand, but is generally somewhat of a bargain.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Only breakfast is served at the hotel (make sure you inquire whether your rate is inclusive of breakfast, it can get pretty expensive paying for this daily). Other dining is all within walking distance from the hotel.

Great central location

Being right next to the train station was great. Only a few minutes train journey to the airport, trams outside the front door and most of the sights of Geneva in walking distance. The rooms were clean and of a good size. Would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a central location.

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).

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