5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Excellent hotel centrally located in old-town Geneva. It’s basic but does what it advertises extremely well. Single rooms are small, but that is why they are less expensive. Dyson fans in the rooms make up for lack of A/C. I can’t really think of anything lacking at this price point and location.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The hotel was in a great area - near Jet D'Eau on Lake Geneva with tons of shopping and restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, the hotel itself was very rundown. Room was small and uncomfortable. Thankfully, we were only there for one night. Would not recommend for any longer than that!

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location is fabulous! Steps from the main shopping streets and Public transportation. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and eateries. This hotel is simple and basic, however, it is a great value. The single rooms are tiny, yet the space is used well. A table with chair, TV a place to lay luggage, several hooks, a small closet with hangers. Firm mattress. The small bathroom also has space for toiletries, hair drier. Small shower but with very good water pressure. Very good breakfast, with scrambled eggs, links, bacon, potato, cold cuts, choice of cheeses, yogurt, choice of cereals, breads, croissant, etc. Delicious coffee. Couple of choices for fruit juice. Pleasant and helpful staff. The roof top terrace has an awesome view of the city. Good to know: the bathroom only has a cream soap in the shower and sink. Any other toiletries you need you will have to bring your own. No shower cap and wash clothes either.
