    Customer service.

    Don’t like the translucent bathroom “doors” — too revealing!

  • 1.6

    Convenient location helpful & friendly staff.

    If room @ the back hotel there is alot of noise from revellers & early morning street cleansing, emptying bins but not so bad that it would stop me using the hotel again.

    Excellent location across the street from train and bus stations and within a walking distance to Geneva Lake and for the shopping district for those seeking that.

    Friendly environment and service; it meets my needs when travelling on business trips.

    None.

    It is an incredible location (probably the best in town), and the price makes it the best value in Geneva.

    The room was incredibly small, but effecient. The Internet was horrible. It was broken the entire time so that no one in the hotel could use it. Down for an hour or two, fine. For more than 1.5 days? Not acceptable.

    Very Clean. New. Good location.

    The fee to use Wireless LAN is very expensive. it was 20CHF. Considering this fee, the room price is not so reasonable. If you don't need it, this hotel is really reasonable.

    New designed Hotel, friendly staff and good facility extras which help you when needed (ironing possibilities, energy transformer, mini bar, taxi call, etc.. which helps you in case of needs. In the city, next to bus/train station (and Starbucks, McDonald's).

    A bit of 'cold' design style 2 min walk to Red Light District
