                  Always a pleasure I have stayed at Hotel Cornavin many times and I will continue to go back. The location and convenience are hard to match. Breakfast is great and staff are very polite and professional. One downside is the lack of an air conditioner, which is not usually a problem except during heat waves. Fortunately, temperatures usually drop in the evenings and the room can be cooled by opening the windows. Also, the proximity to the train station can create significant noise, but good ear plugs can easily solve this problem.

                  The hotel is just located next to Train and tram station. So, you can imagine that you will disturbed by the noise of train and tram from 6 aam until midnight. It was a night mare for my 2 nights stay. Besides that, the rooms is still not available to check in on 2.30pm. the staff informed that not evryone can check in on 2.00pm. This sound very unfriendly.

                  My stay was short but pleasant. I booked for a single room but they put me in this large double room. Geneva is a fantastic place and this hotel is just as great is it is very near all you ever need to go while you're here.

                  Cozy hotel in the heart of Geneva”

                  Cozy, Transport, Comfort

                  One of the best hotels I've been in for 4 stars. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, mini bars and nice view overlooking a church. Next door to the train station where you can get the train to/from the airport or any part of Switzerland. Tram stops are just outside to take you from the old town to CERN. Pefect!

                  Close to train statin, Fast Check in, Easy Check out

                  If you want to stay close to the Train Station then this is the place, the entrance is right outside the Hotel. The Hotel is ok, it's clean and the rooms are of an ok size. The rooms at the back have a view of the train lines, but are still quiet. Check in and Check out were good. We were given a free pass for the City Trams which was useful

                  Come to Geneva, stay at Cornavin (Kornavan)”

                  Superb view from room. Next to train station. Friendly staff.

                  Earlier I was worried with some of the negative comments made by travelers about this hotel. I think it was very good. I requested for the top most floor and the view was splendid. We could see the great fountain in Lake Geneva from our room. It was actually not a big room but because the front wall was all glass, it felt like the whole city was part of the room. Didn't hear noise simply because it was at the highest floor. Internet was good too. We opted for no breakfast, so not much to say about it except that we saw that breakfast was served at one floor below our room (and thus the magnificent view). The hotel also has self-service computer/internet service with printer at no cost! What more? The train station is just next door. I saw a mild fight among the locals at about 5.00 pm but the police was very quick in stopping them.

We had a room on the 7th floor with a fantastic view of the city from the balcony. The room and toilet design is also very modern and clean. Overall we had a very good stay.

                  This hotel is located just next to the Cournavin Geneva Train Station, made it easy for us to reach it just by walking from the station. The room is quite big and it was surrounded by many shops as well as restaurants and cafes. Bus station is also nearby so that we could reach the Jet D'Eau in less than 10 minutes by bus. Strongly recommended!

                  Staff were not that helpful bar the Manager

                  The hotel is very conveniently located just a 2 minute walk from the Main Train Station. Given that the Airport is only about 15 mins away, this makes staying at the Cornavin for stopovers very convenient. The room was pretty nice for the price though I had some very noisy neighbours in the adjacent rooms. Breakfast was a pretty decent spread with a nice view of Geneva. Given Geneva is very walkable, it is pretty convenient, being about 2 or 2 1/2 blocks from the body of water that splits Geneva into 2, so it is quite walkable to the other side. Would recommend persons looking for a convenient location to stay here.
