Hotel La Colombière

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a small, BUDGET hotel in an anonymous suburb of Geneva. It isn't a "business" or "leisure" hotel in any sense of the normal descriptives of the terms. Please don't think that the expensive room rate guarantees any kind of quality. This is not a charming little "boutique hotel". I could touch both walls at the same time in my tiny single room. The "wardrobe" was a few hooks on the wall. There were not enough electrical sockets to have the TV, cable and fan (no air conditioning here) on at the same time. I'm a tall guy, but my feet overhung the tiny bed by at least 12 inches. The skylight immediately above the bed had no curtain, so you wake with the dawn. The reception desk is never manned. No one ever answers calls to "Reception". If I were a backpacker paying $50 a night, I think that would be about right. But at the price they actually charge, it's a scandal. The only good things (I'm trying to be fair) are the very close location to the Palexpo expo centre and the nice, basic Italian restaurant that's owned by the same people. If you happen to need to be very close to the Palexpo and are willing to be hugely over-charged for the privilege and stay in a clean backpacker style hotel, this is for you. If you really are a backpacker, forget it as it's priced way above your budget.
