Every time an Agoda customer checks out of a hotel we send them an email asking them to write a review of their stay. This is the only way reviews can be submitted. Every review must then be approved by our content team before being posted on the Agoda website. Therefore, unlike many other travel sites, ALL Agoda reviews are certified and genuine.

not a four star but nice
it was quiet, nice breakfast
The hotel was nice, but probbaly closer to " stras and nto 4. it wasabout 15-20 min walk to lake? or you can take the bus for free for a 3 min ride, but up to 20 min wait for bus. the bathroom was tiny and only & towl was left. Desk was nice but not overy helpful on suggestions for dinner and site seeing. They came to airport for pickup but had to call on arrival and would not take flight information and just be there, thus had to waitabout a half hour and was unclear where to find driver.
Overall for the expensive city of Geneva it was a good deal through web site, but if I was there again I might explore something else slightly closer to lake and action for same money or save 10-20 dollars and just stay at a 3 star place.
great chicken place (inexpensive half chickens and great service) near/below catherdral called somethig like ma chez...

Staff was helpful and friendly. Room was large and more comfortable then most of the rooms I've stayed at in Geneva. Public transportation easily accessible. Decent size grocery store on one corner and Pharmacy on another.
I have been coming to Geneva almost once a month since June 2007. I stay for up to a week at a time. I only needed a room for one night before transferring to another location and as I was coming in late at night, I wanted something for under CHF 150. I found the Grand Pre for CHF 127 on Agoda. I arrived at midnight and was not immediately impressed when I found that they had no record of my booking. This was quickly addressed and I was accommodated. To my surprise I found the room to be so much nicer than what I've become accustomed to in Geneva. The bathtub and shower is full sized with great water pressure (I was on the top floor). The breakfast is pretty standard by Geneva but adequate. The location while not as convenient was fine. Internet is available but I think there is a cost. As I wasn't staying long I did not bother to check thoroughly. The Bus 8 runs by and you are two stops away from Cornavan train station or maybe a 10-15 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again and if Grand Pre is available under CHF 165 you would be hard pressed to find a better bargain in Geneva.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Full size shower and much quieter than hotels located nearer to the train station.

Review of Grand Pre Hotel
Free shuttle bus to Airport.
Very close to down town and free transportation
pass for guest.
The location of the hotel is good, fairly close
to Geneva down town where you can actually go there
on foot. Otherwise you can always take public
transportation which is free to the guest with the
complimentary pass. The price of the hotel is
reasonable, especially given it is a 4 star hotel.
However, the standard of European hotel is not as
high as the one in the US. The equipment and services is more like a 2.5 star hotel in the US.
The breakfast is OK, not very impressive. On the other hand, it is free so no much to complain about it. The bathroom is quite small, which is typical in Europe. Overall, the place is good for
its price given how expensive Geneva is. The only thing I really don't like is no free internet available in the hotel. There is a "free" public wireless internet but you have to pay to use it.
It is also not cheap. I forgot how much I paid, but something like ~ $1 per minute.
Try to find a place where locals go. They are
usually a little bit far away from downtown and
major street. I had a dinner in a Turkish restaurant not too far away from the hotel. It
is very good and inexpensive.
