not a four star but nice
it was quiet, nice breakfast
location was a bit furher then I thought, busses did tno run as frequent as i thought
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.

Expensive Hotel in Geneva
Conveniently located for the people who attend the conference at CICG and not far from Gare Conarvin.
No free Wifi. Room is too small for this price. If you need ham and tomato for breakfast, you'll have to pay CHF 12 extra.
Since I'm used to the price of hotels in Thailand, so I was shocked to see the price of a small room in Geneva. It doesn't deserve 4-star rating, no in-room slippers, no free razor, etc. If I had to pay for the walk-in price, I'd sleep on the street. Thanks Agoda for the price they offered.

Pleasantly Surprised
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.
Location was unfamiliar but only two stops on public transportation to the train station. Not as many shopping and restaurant options close by. My reservation had apparently not been logged but the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating.
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.

Convenient Location Good value
Hotel is at convenient location . The Standard room has the basic amenities and the breakfast is a good continental breakfast.
No response to emails requesting bus shuttle on arrival. Bus shuttle to Airport available only after 7 a.m. No restaurant although some food is available through room service but only from 7-11.
Although the reviews I read were mixed, I felt that the Hotel was good value for money, particularly since I got a reasonable price through early booking. The rooms offered later were at a 4 star price. The Hotel although assigned 4 star should probably be 3 star. The Hotel is conveniently located although rooms in lower floors below the 5th where I was staying may be noisy early in the morning from street traffic noise. However the standard room had all the basic amenities although TV in English was only BBC and CNN. The continental breakfast was as good as any offered in Europe with no limitations on food consumed and anybody in a standard room who required a hot breakfast could upgrade to it for 12 Sw. Fr. although I believe it unneccessary. On the whole a good hotel conveniently located and offering good value for money.

Review of Grand Pre Hotel
Free shuttle bus to Airport. Very close to down town and free transportation pass for guest.
No free wireless internet
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.

朝食は普通とコンチネンタルの二種類があって、階が違うので、ご注意を。間違えて出て行くと、ちょっと恥ずかしいですが(^_^; 差はコンチネンタルには、卵、スクランブルエッグ、ハム、カップのヨーグルトがありません。缶詰の果物と、プレーンのヨーグルトはあります。

スタッフの愛想は人によるけど、基本的に親切。
ITUと市街の中央にあり、便利。
食事がもうちょっといいといいなと。
ホテルにはリムジンバスがあるので、空港との往復には活用すると良いでしょう。 もっとも、国際空港の荷物受け取りから出口への途中に、市街へのフリーチケット(バス・電車)の発券機があるので、それも活用できます。

バスタブつきを要望したが、シャワーだけの部屋になった。(エージェントのせいかも知れないが)
今回は、噴火のために到着が一日遅れたが、連絡を入れたら、災害の時のキャンセル料は不要であると言ってくれた。この辺の対応は非常に印象が良い。朝食もコンチネンタルだったのだが、後半は普通の朝食を食べることが出来た。非常に好印象であった。
