I stayed at this hotel for six nights while attending a conference. The location was excellent for sight seeing and accessing public transportation. It's only about 2-1/2 blocks (10 minute walk) from Gare Cornavin. The room was comfortable, good wifi, and several English language channels. The desk staff were friendly. Breakfast was fine (meats, cheeses, breads). Be sure to grab a free transportation ticket before leaving baggage claim, then take the train from the airport to the train station. One thing I wish the hotel website included was better directions from the train station. Once arriving, I had no clue where to go, ended up at a wrong ibis and then ended up walking a ways to get to the right ibis. So if you choose this hotel - go out the front, start walking on Rue des Alpes, then turn left on Rue de Berne (you'll see the ibis sign).

This hotel is very well located, a short walk from the railway station and very close to the Lake and the old town where we had a lovely evening. The hotel is not grand, but it is very comfortable. Staff were warm and welcoming. The price was very good. Breakfast was excellent. Recommended.

This hotel is very conveniently located for the lake and the station, so it’s a good place to sleep while you’re in Geneva. Staff were polite and friendly, and the place is nice enough. However the room was very basic. Small things weren’t great, like reddish brown marks on the sink, broken toilet roll holder and mould on bathroom ceiling. No drawers to put your clothes in - just a small hanging space. Bed was comfy and turndown service was good. Breakfast was fine - mixture of pastries, yoghurt etc - usually continental fare. Overall I’d recommend this for a few nights stay if you’re here on holiday - because the location alone is great. but I was staying for a week on business and the room wasn’t quite comfortable enough to work from etc.

Easy check-in, helpful staff, clean room, adequate breakfast, near train station and several restaurants. In the red light district so if you want to avoid that part in the evening, walk towards the train station and the main boulevard. There is a small store across the street from the hotel for snacks and such. Many ethnic easy-in and out restaurants nearby.

Check in was great. The cleaning service was not really good. Bathroom really needs attention but seems they don’t report or care about it. Breakfast is okay but dinner options are not great at all but the street is full of good options. As a ALL member you will be treated just as a non — they are so fair ;-).
