Hotel Cornavin

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

2nd stay at this hotel because of its convenience to local transportation routes. Worst place to be during Geneva's hot summer. No ac in room or hotel suggestion to change room. Noisy atmosphere when windows opened. Fan provided, but inadequate to cool entire room. Erroneous charge for city tax for 2 persons for entire stay when 2nd guest in room was only present for 3 nights. Feven, hotel front desk clerk was aggressive and rude when asked about a refund for nights 2nd guest was not present or about rebate for uncomfortable stay in room, even when her colleague insisted. Inaccessible front entrance for wheelchair guest or for someone lifting heavy luggage. Abnormally high and slippery bathtub. Cleaning staff that always seem to be irritated. No iron and board in room. Hot, non-ventilated room on 1st floor for ironing. Extremely uncomfortable! Inadequate and wrongly placed power outlets in room. Hot lobby area. No visible security or attendants. Would not recommend hotel to anyone.

Convenient hotel with nice rooms. No convenient public bar, so it was awkward to work with colleagues

Very clean and efficient hotel next to the train station, easy to get around Geneva.

Great location next to the train station easy walking to everything you will want to see. Spacious room for 3 people, comfortable beds and very clean.

My room was looking over the Cornavin plaza and the church. View was Excellent. It had a twin bed. The mattress was too soft for my liking. Otherwise the hotel is excellent.

Meet all my expection plus more. Will book here next time I am in Geneva

Great location. Unique hotel. Easy to walk to restaurants, shopping, bars, etc. Close and easy access to public transportation whiah worked wonderful for us!

Even more, more for a less. Well situated, awesome view from the restaurant to the Alps and Cornavin. This is a beautiful surprise of valuable stay.

It is great. The room is clean. I like the big desk of the hotel.

Everything was really nice here, the room was spacious, had a great view, and was affordable. The wireless service was top notch and the staff was super helpful. The location is awesome (right at the train station) so it is central to the town, would highly recommend.

Clean rooms, fascinating panorama dining hall. I was surprised how quickly is to arrive to the hotel from the airport. Overall very good impressions.

Excellent location. Most staff members were quite helpful. I'd stay there again.

Excellent Location. Great Staff. Clean Simple Rooms. Excellent wireless internet connection. Everything you need for business.

The train station is just 1 min aways from the hotel. I was there for a business trip. It was a nice location.

The price of the hotel and provided services do not match each other. The rooms are quite dark and old. I think there were not renewal for a long time. But location is fantastic. The hotel is located in the downtown one min walk from Central Station. There are good cafes nearby.

So close to railway station and the heart of Geneva 5 minute stroll to Lake Geneva Would gladly stay there anytime

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.

Being close to train station, it is very practical. Some rooms overlook tracks but windows are efficiently soundproof and one cannot hear much. If very sensitive though, ask rooms on city side. Breakfast room has fantastic views on city.

A pesar de estar al lado de la estación de los trenes, es tranquilo y silencioso.

I've stayed at the Cornavin on and off for the last 10 years. The location cannot be beaten - next to the train station, the central bus and tram station, and lots of outdoor cafes as well as an underground shopping center. The rooms are modern, small, and quite functional; the wi-fi bandwidth is excellent. Breakfast in the panoramic room on the 8th floor offers one of the best views of Geneva. Price fluctuates with season and demand, but is generally somewhat of a bargain.
