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.

Overpriced 2 star

This search engine has this hotel rated as a 4 star but the hotels website rates it as a 2 star. It's overpriced, AC doesn't work well and the staff are rude and unhelpful.

At Central Rail Station

A great location for getting around Geneva and the surrounding countryside. There are shopping and restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean but ordinary. There were 3 twin beds in each of our rooms, so this seems to be a hotel for groups (skiers?) who want easy access to the train. Great for families on a budget.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Walk out of the train station, turn right and you will see the hotel! Can't get any better than that. All the bus and trams run right outside the hotel too. There are shops all around, lots of places to eat BUT everything in Geneva is VERY expensive!! A meal is 2-3 times what you'd pay in US. No cheap food nearby except maybe McDonald's but we didn't look at their prices.

Hotel Cornavin, Geneva

Great location next to the train station, free internet, helpful staff, clean modern room, double windows to block out street noise, and reasonably priced. Nice breakfast room on 8th floor with views of city. Breakfast not included. Hotel gives free pass for using all public transportation in city. Would be perfect if it had real sheets and blankets, a hot tub and in room iron/ironing board. City is very expensive. Crime element is noticeable. Stay on main streets at night.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Old town buildings are beautiful. United Nations building good for taking pics outside, but no tours and gated. CERN worth a trip if you like science. Parc Des Bastions beautiful and fun for chess, checkers, and ping pong lovers...bring ball and paddle. Great public transportation system.
