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.

Rooms facing the train station have soundproof windows but guests still might want to request a room on the other side of the hotel. Four panoramic rooms provide views of the city and Jet d'Eau.

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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't forget that at the airport all travellers arriving can get a free train ticket into town, and all hotels provide a free public transport pass for your stay in Geneva.

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.

great location

if you fly into Geneva, you can get a free rail voucher from a dispenser in baggage claim for travel into town (train will say Lausanne, the first stop is Gare Cornavin). Exit the Cornavin rail station and immediately to your right is the Hotel Cornavin. Thankfully, Swiss railroads are pretty quiet although the one downside of the hotel is the amount of noise a neighbor can generate. okay value breakfast (for Geneva) at 19 Swiss francs and it starts at 6:00 am, very friendly staff who are multi-lingual. Computer/internet is not free, but they were very nice in not charging when I had connectivity issues.

you only have to get a block away from Rue Mont Blanc for decent value restaurants--there's no need to pay $50 for an average steak with fries. Try the North African, Thai, Vietnamese or other ethnic places.

Reliable business hotel

Location is unbeatable for all Geneva business. Staff is helpful; breakfast view is extraordinary. No bar or restaurant however, and fitness room is minimal.

Great for buisness

The hotel is very convenient for travellers, being located a few meters from the train station and other forms of public transport. The rooms are satisfactory and the breakfast quite good.

decent place

The room was small, but that was expected and was fine. Great use of space for a small room, though. Location is super-convenient, but being close to the train station means some noise if the window is open. Beautiful view from 8th-floor breakfast room. Breakfast is basic but fine: cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads, hard-boiled eggs -- no scrambled eggs, no mueslix. Would stay there again.

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.
