Clean and Convenient

I had an early flight out of Geneva. This hotels proximity to the train station along with an included one day transportation ticket for all public services (rail, bus, and tram) provided me with an exceptionally convenient way to enjoy an evening in the bustling shopping area of the central district before an early flight from the airport. The staff was professional and the business amenities exceptional. The décor is very modern and the clean Euro style complimented the experience. A mini fridge is available in the room with plenty of space for your personal travel snacks and beverages. I did not stay for the breakfast (not included) though the restaurant's 'Panoramic View" and location on the eighth floor allowed for a beautiful view of the city, lake (fountain too) and French Alps in the background.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Go underground! The train station and bus/tram depot is located on top of a huge mall that can be accessed by escalators. You name it...they got it!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
