  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great for business travelers

    Great hotel on in the city for business travel. Walk-able to pretty much everything. Minutes from the train station and 10min walk to Old town. Reception staff were wonderful. As with most buildings in Geneva, its older but renovated. For the business traveler who needs a good, clean and comfortable place to stay, this is it. Its not a 5star but it does the job quite right..

    Comfortable hotel near rail station and Old Town

    Spacious room, comfortable bed and great staff and good location just 5 minutes walking to the Old Town. My only negative feedback is about the construction work being undertaken. Unfortunately, I did not see the note about the hotel being under refurbishment in the (There is one, I checked after) and at 9:30am the noise started right beside our room. As it is construction noise, it is quite loud. I understand that the hotel is being refurbished for improvements but perhaps looking into start work after 10am at least.

    Great location.

    Staff is very friendly. Location is great. My only complaint is the light in the bathroom is horrendous, that was very uncomfortable to deal with.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Don’t stay here, better hotels within 50 metres.

    Check in was ok, except the rooms are a lot smaller than the pictures lead you to believe. When we tried to move the curtain to close it, the entire curtain railing fell down. We asked to be moved to another room. We were initially told that this was not possible and that it was not a big problem. After insisting on moving rooms, we found out that the staff entered our hotel room without permission to inspect the curtain, even though they had already sent a staff member with me to inspect it. The uninvited visitor came to the conclusion of ‘human damage’ causing the curtains to fall, even though there was not a single screw attaching it to the runner. Several arguments with extremely rude staff resulted in them invoicing me 50CHF for the damage. If the curtains fall down through normal use, there’s something wrong with them. Staff entering the hotel room without permission is is an unacceptable violation of privacy. They moved us to another room (granted a bigger one) only after we insisted because they were leaving not only the curtains on the floor (and there was not much floor space to begin with) but also all the cracked laminate from where the curtains fell down. We felt intimidated and unwelcome walking through the lobby, and although we tried to have reasonable discussions about how we could not have possibly caused the curtains to fall down, they still insisted on charging us.
