Great location, good if you can get for a decent price

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The location doesn't get any better, practically touching the train station but with sound proof rooms so you can barely hear the train. I managed to get this hotel for only $140 a night with prepaid. I think that is a fantastic deal in Geneva. One major complaint: the Wi-Fi only worked 3 hours of the 48 that I was there. Front desk staff played ignorant when I told them they need to re-set the router. So, if internet works, it's a decent hotel. If the internet isn't working, don't expect them to be able to fix it.

Ideally located by the station

From the airport got the train for 3CHF which stops right outside the hotel. Free travel card on arrival at the hotel to use for the whole of our stay, so could use it for the buses/metro and return train to the airport which runs every 10/15 mins. Short walk into the shopping area and down to the lake. A little further into the old town but still only 5/10 mins. Room very clean and very comfy beds! Also windows soundproofed so although next to the station and busy main street couldn't hear anything and room had aircon. Breakfast was not included in rate. It was 19CHF but we didn't eat there we went to Starbucks across the road... Eating and drinking out in Geneva very expensive so be warned! We ate at Mortimars in the old town which was fantastic. Food lovely and bags of atmosphere, but need to book!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great deal of shopping within a few miles walk. Across the lake is the official "shopping district", which included some neat musicians. It was very cultural.

Very Convenient

The location of this hotel was perfect... Just across from the main rail station in Geneva. The service was good. I did not have an opportunity to check out the spa and exercise room. As hotels can be quite expensive in Switzerland, I found that the rate from Orbitz was excellent for a quality hotel in Geneva.

Take Bus number 8 just in front of the rail station to Veyriers-Douane, walk across the French border from the end of the line and take the cable cars up to the top of the alpine ridge for excellent views of Geneva and the mountains. There are also some beautiful hiking trails up there.
