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.

Nice Hotel, Convenient

Had to stay in GNVA for one night and next to the train station for easy access to airport train. Hotel Cornavin was very nice and right next to the train station. The rooms are new and clean and are a great value. I strongly recommend the hotel if you're looking for a cheap, convenient and nice room.

Great Hotel to Go Places

We intended to visit nearby places in and out of Geneva during our stay and tried to pick the hotel that would be located on one hand at a spot nearby public transportation hub (for Switzerland, think trains; for Geneva trams and sometimes buses, given it is free of charge for travelers staying at most hotels) on the other hand located in a pleasant neighborhood close to the center of the town. We wound up booking Cornavin hotel, and it proved to be an excellent fit for our purposes. It was a breeze to get anywhere and hotel's double windows and sound proof walls provided for a totally quiet room (even though it overlooked the train station). Certainly not a romantic or a cozy getaway place, but a clean and well maintained hotel at an excellent location with a beautiful breakfast room (overlooking the city and surrounding area) and mediocre to poor breakfast itself (unless a continental breakfast for 20 francs is what you want)

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.

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.
