Business Park Hotel Thoiry - Genève3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Beautiful hotel rooms. We spent only a night here. We are a family of 4 with children aged 9 and 6. We were given a lovely room with a double bed and a sofa bed. There was everything we needed in the room. A little kitchen to cook, a dishwasher, a fridge, microwave. Pots and pans. Plates, glasses, cutlery. Shame we stayed only a night as we couldn't explore the hotel properly.
This place was quite the find, and we'll definitely be back again! Booked it at a loss for somewhere to stay on the way back from a holiday in the South of France, ostensibly because it was cheap and close to Geneva, which we wanted to visited. What a pleasant surprise! The outside is inauspicious and Thoiry itself is nondescript, but inside the staff are welcoming, it's clean and smart, and the apartments are enormous. Breakfast the next morning (continental) was just the right mix. My daughter went nuts for the orange juice. All in all, hugely good value for money, and Geneva itself was stunning!
We really enjoyed our short stay at this hotel. The staff were nice and welcoming. The suite was well appointed and quite spacious. It included all of the amenities for a comfortable stay. The location is ideal for anyone having to catch a flight from the Geneva Airport as was the case for my wife and I. The breakfast was simply okay since it lacked the variety of food items that other similar hotels of its class offered. The view of the Alps was quite beautiful from our room.
This hotel is in France Don't be misled saying it's near Geneva. It's a good 35-40min taxi ride in morning traffic. I didn't realise it since my office travel desk booked it on a business trip to Geneva. They don't accept Swiss francs and we didn't have euros with us. The shuttle to airport or Geneva station is a sham...its a van with 8seats- as told by reception- so hardly a chance of ever getting a seat..and then they start selling the seats at euro 7. While arriving I had taken an uber from Geneva train station n it costed me 30 chf. Since I didn't get the hotel shuttle next morning and uber was taking time, I requested hotel to call for a cab -it took 80euros. Rooms are big but Wi-Fi is very poor. Breakfast was very disappointing with hardly anything for a vegetarian. Location is in the middle of nowhere. It's better to stay in Lausanne which is a 30min train ride away from Geneva rather than stay here. Most ppl visiting Switzerland would buy a Swiss pass n hence I recommend staying at Lausanne if u find hotels in Geneva extremely expensive. The reception didn't give us a receipt for our city tax when we checked in. On check out, we were told we hadn't paid it..and we had to forcefully argue before they agrees to not bill is again. Rooms though are big with a microwave, living room etc. Soap n all was missing from the bathroom on check in. Pretty avoidable.
Being 20 minutes from the Airport makes this a good location. Our room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was overpriced and there was a poor selection of goods but fine for a 1 night stay. Staff though seemed distracted by a coach tour party, who were served a separate breakfast outside the hotel in a tent. I would stay there again but would not be excited by the prospect.
Hotel was great! Got there late, couch was already made up, able to have hot food and mini-baguettes at midnight. Great shower, nespresso in the room, terrace! Breakfast was wonderful. Very nice staff, clean and comfortable.
I have been here for 5 days during and important exhibition in Geneve. The hotel is easy to be reached from Geneve and looks like pretty new. The ratio, during the important fairs between price and quality is really bad. The rooms are quite large even if the bedroom is very small. The curtains are really narrow and not able to cover the windows (therefore lot of light coming it). Not complementary stuff in the toilet. No refurbishing and cleaning of the room, just towels changing. I left for 2 days the laundry bag filled or clothes to be washed but was not picked up even if asked, therefore no cleaning. But the 2 most surprising points have been: 1) the bottles of water were sold out for one week and no one from the stuff went to buy those 2) I have asked for a pair of slippers for 6 days and was not available because out of stock an no one from the staff purchased those. Breakfast quite good. If you go back late in the night, be patient, 15 minutes to open the gate.
Business Park Hotel Thoiry is 10 kilometers from Geneva. CERN and the Geneva airport are in easy reach. This hotel is definite more suitable for guests who are travelling with a car. We used 3 times the Business Park Hotel in the autumn, because I had to do business in Geneva and did not want to pay expensive Geneva prices. It's a hotel with about 100 serviced apartments. They are clean and conveniently furnished. For a long-term stay, the cleaning is done only twice a week. The rooms are air conditioned. The beds are comfortable consisting of two single beds of 90 cm each. The larger units have a separate living room, with a sofa that can be converted in an additional bed. The apartments are equipped with a kitchenette, fridge and dish washer. The bathroom is bright and clean, the towels are of good quality. The breakfast costs € 11.-. It contains various small pastries, scrambled eggs from the Tetra pack or the raw eggs to be cooked in a water bath, fried sausages, cold cuts, cheeses and yogurt. Next to the hotel are two restaurants. Leon de Lyon, specialized in mussels with French fries or Alsatian sauerkraut. There is also an Italian restaurant on the opposite site accessible through the car park. A large shopping center with a MacDonald is located within two kilometers driving distance. A shuttle service to the airport is maintained, which operates irregularly. Free parking is available at the hotel. A coin laundry service can be found next to the reception. Due to the affordable price, the hotel is well worth considering
They claim that they have free airport shuttle, which is a big fat lie. On landing and calling the hotel, they said the shuttle works only on limited time (no service hours between 12 noon till 5.15 pm) and told me that they will book at Taxi at 50 Euros, whereas regular Uber charges 27 Euros. On reaching the hotel, more additional charges whereas the Expedia booking included breakfast. Feeling conned and ripped.
It’s a cute hotel with all basic amenities. The rooms are clean with cozy bed and sofas. The open kitchen serves the purpose and convenient. I stayed for around 40 days during Feb & Mar and hotel was warm enough to save me from -10 degree c. Doesn't offer much eating options. You can nice Pizzas in adjacent restaurant Pizzaria. Staff is humble but sometimes follow-up is needed. Internet connectivity troubles at times. The outside view is great and gives an impression of country side. Village Saint-Genis-Pouilly is at walking distance and you must see it if you are not familiar with a French village. There is certainly something inexplicable about this hotel which made my stay memorable.
