    Geneva airport hotel

    Walkable from Geneva airport. Great for overnight stays between transfers or late night arrivals/early morning departures. There is also a public bus from the hotel to Geneva station for the trains. The hotel (Geneva city) provides you a free day pass for public transportation upon check-in.

    Clean and basic

    Pretty basic hotel as expected, but exactly what we were looking for before our early flight. We took the train in and walked to the hotel in less than 10 minutes. Was less than 15 minutes from the hotel to the airport the next morning so very convenient that way. The room was clean and the hotel seemed fairly new (my drab at all like some other budget places I’ve stayed). Overall would recommend for the convenience for sure. No complaints.

    Overall good

    Overall meet expectation. Close to the airport, but be careful not to follow google map direction - just walk according to the sign “Palexpo”. However, the upper bunk bed was not clean (bedding sheet unchanged). Also, room was very basic, but this was as expected.
