The hotel is in a great location in Geneva for walking around and exploring, but the room itself was pretty terrible. The wall around our window had quite a bit of mold and the shower curtain wasn’t long enough to fit in the shower, so every time we took a shower water got all over the bathroom floor. Further, our room didn’t have air conditioning and the fan that was provided was incredibly dirty and full of accumulated dust. The room had a nice balcony that overlooked some other buildings, but the street noise woke my partner and I up multiple times each night. The staff, however, were fantastic and very friendly.

I'd never stay here again. It was priced as a hotel, but the amenities were those of a youth hostel. My room looked like a prison cell, with a metal-framed bunkbed, and a tiny shower, and no bathroom, Barely enough room to swing a cat. For 125 CHF per night that's really bad value for money. Never again.

For a short, basic, no frills stay in the centre + very friendly/helpful staff this was absolutely fine. But beware Zutin (no relation) who runs the restaurant next door. At 9 am he told us he only had 1 normal croissant left, and then refused to fill cup a bottle with tap water. how can you be so amazingly mean?!!!!!
