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.

leisure with Boyfriend

stay was Ok. stayed in the panoromic rooms, very cold in the room, asked for them to check up...nothing happened. Oh, the big bed is really 2 beds put together, annoying if you are with your better half. A rude receptionnist on day 2. I avoided her like the plague from then on. Another funny thing happened, we were leaving the room for our days excursion and the housekeeper was outside the door, she complained that we had overstayed in the room and that she wanted to clean and finish up. what the..... we were only checking out the next day. When did staff get this nasty with no sense of customer care? like seriously! i did not even get angry as i thought it was some what amusing. When we came back, the cleanig was so substandard, she should have just left the room as was.............did not let that ruin our stay. They need to go back and have some refresher training on hospitality.

anything touristy is withitn a short walking distance...or a few tram/bus stops from the hotel. This is situated right by the train station, so ideal if you are leaving Geneva for the day to visit other cities...

Good location, but needs to work on some detail

Pros: Location, cost, style Cons: you can't turn on the bathroom light without turning on the bedroom lights. This is problematic for the middle of the night bathroom trips. Also, the evening concierge is no good. The first night, they told us that breakfast was included in the room charges; at check out they told us that this was not correct. Then, they had difficulty recommending any fondue places to eat. He gave us a card for a place saying that he "didn't know much about it, except that it was close...." Not a very good recommnedation, if you ask me. All in all, though, it was a decent place to stay.

Great Location

We were ending a 2 1/2 week trip to Italy and Switzerland. Since we were leaving by train to the airport, the location of the hotel was fantastic. The area a little rough but we did walk everywhere Most hotels have breakfast included with the hotel stay and we were surprised that with the hight cost of our room, $170 CHF ,we did not. We would not stay at this hotel again. Very expensive internet!

Location, location, location!

A perfectly situated hotel, located directly beside the train station. Easy to get to from the airport by train and only about a 5 minute walk from the lake. Lot`s of restaurants and shops are also within walking distance, however we did find it hard to find anything reasonably priced. Be prepared to spend money on food. The room itself was quite modern and clean. I would recommend a room on the higher floors as the view was much better. Thankfully wifi was also provided free of charge, a plus! All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Great location, affordable and very clean

We were surprise this hotel did not get more good reviews. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The room was stylish and clean and the location was right next to the train station but was not loud and very convenient.

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.
