Hotel Tor is located in the heart of city, just a three-minute walk from the banks of Lake Geneva. It offers various accommodation options, ranging from budget rooms to spacious studios and apartments.
The rooms can accommodate one or two guests and feature a shower, a sink and a television. Suites and apartments also offer a kitchen and provide space for up to eight guests.
Free Wi-Fi access is available and English-speaking staff members offer tourist advice and services at reception. A lift provides easy access to the rooms.
Guests can take continental breakfast in their rooms each day and, on the ground floor, Wine & Beef Lévrier serves steaks and salads alongside an extensive selection of fine wines.
Within Lake Geneva, Jet d’Eau is a must-see and, a mile from Hotel Tor, St. Pierre Cathedral and its Chapel of the Maccabees is a popular attraction in the Old Town.
Visitors love the fact that the Cornavin train station is within a ten minute walk, and the public transportation is very reliable, while the hotel is located within close proximity to the lakes. Once you are on the train you can travel in almost any direction and access many of the nearby attractions.
Extra friendly staff
If you happen to arrive earlier than you planned, it might not be a problem at all at the Tor Hotel. There have been guests who did arrive unexpectedly early and were allowed to check in at no extra cost. Staff were friendly and completely understanding.
Pretty good Wi-Fi
Guests are really pleased with the quality of the signal at this hotel. If you need a good connection, you can be sure you will not have any interruptions while you are busy, whether you are a business traveller or a tourist.
A couple of guests have reported finding bed bugs in the bed during a second visit to Tor Hotel. Although they were quite put off by the discovery, they were pleased to be upgraded to another room which was free of any pest.
Shared toilets not great
Although travellers do have their own showers, some of the guest rooms need to share the toilet. If you are not happy with this arrangement, rather pay a little extra for your own private bathroom.
No breakfast area
If you do decide to have an on-site breakfast, you will have to be happy with it being brought to your room. There is no dining area for guests to sit, relax and be served, however the breakfast has been described as a good start to the day.
