Positive Reviews


Praise for wide range of rooms

Guests appreciated the wide choice of accommodation at this city centre hotel. The budget rooms were said to be no frills but clean and comfortable enough for those prioritizing affordability. The spacious, well-appointed apartments with hardwood floors, tasteful decor and modern appliances were bright and airy. Reviewers in selected rooms also liked the pleasant city views. Although it wasn't necessarily cheap, the room rates were reportedly relatively affordable by comparison to alternatives in often pricey Geneva.


Well-run hotel had friendly staff

According to many visitors, this family-run hotel was run smoothly and the personnel were often described as efficient, helpful and friendly.


Excellent city centre location

This hotel's location nestled between the old town and main shopping streets of Geneva appealed to travellers as it put them within easy walking distance of boutiques, watchmakers, dining options and beautiful Lake Geneva with its famous water fountain. Reviewers also loved the way they received a free public transport ticket that was valid during their stays. It enabled them to explore the city using its excellent network of trams, trolley-buses, boats and buses.

Negative Reviews


Minor grumbles about some rooms

Certain rooms attracted minor criticism from some quarters. A few critics claimed they found some rooms and bathrooms to be too small or disliked the decor, sometimes calling it dated. There were also occasional reports of patchy Wi-Fi in some areas of the building.


Mixed feelings about breakfast

The free continental breakfast split opinion among reviewers. Some were satisfied with bread rolls, croissants, jam and juice plus tea, coffee or hot chocolate and liked the way they were served in their room; others said it lacked variety.


Occasional nuisance noise

Some light sleepers suggested soundproofing measures were inadequate as they could occasionally hear noise from adjacent rooms too easily.
