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.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great deal of shopping within a few miles walk. Across the lake is the official "shopping district", which included some neat musicians. It was very cultural.

Early Spring in Geneva

We had a lovely room with a view of the alps. Being next to the train station made travel all over Geneva super easy, yet our room was quiet. Breakfast was very expensive but the small refrigerator in the room worked well to store snack food. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

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.

very pleased

with Hotel Cornavin. Location could not be better for transport connections and there are a variety of affordable restaurants nearby. Geneva can be a very pricey city, but I found good Thai, Vietnamese, and North African cafes with reasonable prices as well as the food in some nearby bars. Staff was friendly and noise was not an issue.

great stay

We had a great stay at the Hotel Cornavin. We came in and left on the train, and this hotel could not be any more convenient for train travelers. It literally sits across the street from the train station. That said, it was not at all noisy. We found the hotel perfect with regards to our needs: we were seeking a clean, comfortable, safe, and budget friendly place to use as a base on a 1-night stay to explore Geneva. Would pick this hotel again in an instant.

Great location!

Location is great, so close to the railway station which leads to the airport, yet close enough to the centre and the lake.

Ideally located by the station

From the airport got the train for 3CHF which stops right outside the hotel. Free travel card on arrival at the hotel to use for the whole of our stay, so could use it for the buses/metro and return train to the airport which runs every 10/15 mins. Short walk into the shopping area and down to the lake. A little further into the old town but still only 5/10 mins. Room very clean and very comfy beds! Also windows soundproofed so although next to the station and busy main street couldn't hear anything and room had aircon. Breakfast was not included in rate. It was 19CHF but we didn't eat there we went to Starbucks across the road... Eating and drinking out in Geneva very expensive so be warned! We ate at Mortimars in the old town which was fantastic. Food lovely and bags of atmosphere, but need to book!

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.
