Great hotel for a weekend

Stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. This hotel was clean, and the service was nice. The location was great, right next to the train, tram and bus hub, so getting around was very easy. Our room had a view of the lake where you could see the jet d'eau and, on a clear day, even Monte Blanc. It was a gorgeous view that made the weekend. Highly recommended.

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)

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.

Wonderful trip

We took the complimentary train from the airport to station, then crossed the street to the hotel. We arrived at 8AM and asked to check in early, and the staff was happy to oblige. They had a record of our request for a room on an upper floor, facing the street side instead of the train side, and none of the rooms available at 8AM met our criteria. We decided to hold out for a better room. A few hours later we returned and received room 909 on the top floor, which exceeded expectations. The expansive windows showed a beautiful view, the room was very clean, quiet, comfortable and large in size by European standards. The beds were also very comfortable, my back felt great. The only real room annoyance was that the whole room lights up when the bathroom light is on (glass-type walls), the bathroom door doesn't shut fully, and the free internet access was sometimes slow although these were minor annoyances in an otherwise terrific stay. We also loved the location: staying across the street from the train station was very convenient, and also within walking distance of most of the things we wished to see. We also used the included transit passes to ride the bus. Given the discounted price we paid, the value of this room was excellent.

Good value

Great hotel. Hard to find, it is on the lake side of the train station. If you are driving and miss it, the local roads are a nightmare if you need to turn around. No on site parking, but you can park in the train station underground lot for 14fr. with discount coupon from hotel.

Great place, conveniently located

This hotel was very comfortable...we had an excellent view (not all rooms have them) and were quite comfortable. Updated decor, good shower, very quiet with the window shut (amazing sound proofing). The neighborhood is not "quaint", but it is close to quaint neighborhoods and you get a free bus pass. Bus stops are literally right across the street, and there is a tunnel to the train station that was really nice when it rained one morning and we did not want to pay for the expensive breakfast...ducked in to the train station and had an excellent croissant/café/jus d'orange at one of the many little shops underground with the locals. I would definitely stay here again...staff is very nice. And Tintin stayed here too so that is cool...

Hotel Cornavin

This hotel is perfectly situated in the city center, adjacent to the central train station. Less than 10 minutes from the airport. The hotel provides a free rail/bus pass for Geneva. Buffett breakfast is very good.
