Muggy, uncomfortable stay in a great area
The hotel stated that it had A/C in the rooms, which it did but the thermostat would only go down to 20 celcius and the windows are not insulated. Upon check-in my room was muggy and uncomfortable. Even after leaving the curtains closed all day and the A/C set to the lowest temp it was still uncomfortable. So much that the only comfort was wearing nearly nothing and laying on top of the bed covers. UNTIL....I discovered that the A/C unit was above the bathroom metal ceiling panels. The panels were condensating so I investigated further by removing one of them. There was cold air circulating ABOVE the ceiling panel rather than into the room. As it turns out, the A/C unit was NOT ducted to the "vent" in the wall. So the construction crew that put these units in when the hotel was built were just hoping that SOME of the air would blow through the "vent" (which was really just a hole cut in the sheetrock) and sufficiently cool the room. That isnt happening. Not only is this substandard construction practices but it is also a waste of energy, which the hotel pays for. I investigated the other two rooms we booked and the conditions were the same. make things easier on us....I removed the ceiling panels in all 3 bathrooms (its fairly easy) and left them off for the night. The change was dramatic. All 3 rooms cooled as they should....since cold air settles. FYI: I just happen to build schools and hotels for a living charge for the free advice.

Great Central Location
The room on the street was noisy. The air conditions didn’t work well.

Ideal for a night or two on business
Nice hotel and fit for the purpose of my trip. The room was small but had everything I needed. Cannot fault the cleanliness nor location, right beside the station. Check in/out was quick and hassle free. Wifi worked perfectly. Ideal for a night or two in Geneva (business). I would stay here again.
