        Location and friendly staff

        The hotel has a very good location. It is not far from the train station so it is easy to commute by walking for 10 mins from the hotel. This hotel is just on the Lake Leman, just few minutes walk from the hotel. Our friend even got a room with lake view. The rooms were good and decorated with different styles and themes. Although, the rooms were not big but we have had a good stay there for one night. The staff were very helpful, friendly, and efficient. I would recommend this hotel for business and family travelers.

        Location, service of the staff and cleanliness of the hotel.

        I like the hotel location very much, it is on right in front of the river with a nice view but close to the train station at the same time. The staff of the hotel is helpful and there is no need to wait for long for their service. It is likely that we will choose this hotel next while coming back to Geneva.

        The hotel is located in just great place where you can access almost all touristic spots and sholping street by walk. The view from the hotel window refreshes you every morning. The employees are all kind and precise. No cons for this hotel. I would visit here once again.

        i have stayed in this property multiple times and historically have been very pleased with the hotel and service. every time i stay I am normally with a group and booking multiple rooms; 5+ rooms. typically i am usually upgraded, however this time the front staff we less than friendly and would not even consider the upgrade to a lake view. Stating, the improved room was not in the booking. i was very disappointed, mostly from the front desk attitude, not the standard room provided.

        Great location

        Great for shopping or business. Small rooms just fine if you want to sleep and see the city early in the morning. Not much to do within the hotel. Service was good and people polite. Would recommend if looking for a practical hotel in the city center.

        Ripoff!”

        I paid CHF 450.00 for room 607, breakfast not included. I couldn't believe my eyes: shoddy, ugly, extremely small, horrible old furniture, terrible lighting, cheap uncomfortable bed with very light covers. I was freezing during the night. How can they have the nerve to sell such a room at that price! I feel like I was robbed!
