Very centrally located. Easy access to public transportation. Very helpful and friendly front desk staff.

Too much street noise - even on the 4th floor. Public spaces are really tired and worn.

The bathroom was relatively large for Geneva hotels and the bed and shower were comfortable. Overall it was a very pleasant hotel.

I had informed the hotel that I would be arriving early and requested early check in. Instead of allowing me to check in early, they tried to turn me away and send me to another hotel that was much farther away from the train station. I had already paid for the hotel and had been charged, but they insisted the price was the same and would not be a problem. When I declined, it took a very long time to get a hotel room. I would recommend reserving the hotel room for the night prior if you plan to arrive early in the morning since I had to wait 6 hours for a room. (NOTE: This has happened at other hotels in Geneva, so the problem is not unique to this hotel.)

Nice breakfast. 5th floor rooms have balconies, which are nice when the weather is good. Spacious bathrooms in lower floor rooms.

Lots of noise from outdoors. It is not on a busy street, but there is an apartment building across the narrow road. It was possible to hear people talking when they were on their balcony or had windows open. (Hotel windows were closed.) It was quite loud when people returned home from the bars.

The Hotel is located in the center of Geneva very close to stores, tram line and the train station and yet is in a quiet neighborhood. The staff is extremely helpful. The breakfast is a small set up but very complete and should meet anyone's needs and diet.

I did not like to leave and head back to the airport for a long flight home.

The staff is always helpful and friendly. In addition, it is located very close to the train station in Geneva so it is a short walk to find food, a pharmacy or a department store if you need any of the above. I also enjoy their breakfasts.
