Rundown

The hotel was in a great area - near Jet D'Eau on Lake Geneva with tons of shopping and restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, the hotel itself was very rundown. Room was small and uncomfortable. Thankfully, we were only there for one night. Would not recommend for any longer than that!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The location is fabulous! Steps from the main shopping streets and Public transportation. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and eateries. This hotel is simple and basic, however, it is a great value. The single rooms are tiny, yet the space is used well. A table with chair, TV a place to lay luggage, several hooks, a small closet with hangers. Firm mattress. The small bathroom also has space for toiletries, hair drier. Small shower but with very good water pressure. Very good breakfast, with scrambled eggs, links, bacon, potato, cold cuts, choice of cheeses, yogurt, choice of cereals, breads, croissant, etc. Delicious coffee. Couple of choices for fruit juice. Pleasant and helpful staff. The roof top terrace has an awesome view of the city. Good to know: the bathroom only has a cream soap in the shower and sink. Any other toiletries you need you will have to bring your own. No shower cap and wash clothes either.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel was perfectly situated for exploring the city (especially old town) on foot but also close to many bus lines and within 20 minutes or so of everything I needed for work in the city. The staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean, and the self-service kitchen was great. The breakfast was very good and had a lot of choices. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Geneva.
