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.

All of the best things about Geneva
We had a wonderful stay at The Hotel Cristal in Geneva Switzerland. The location was central to transportation, the old city, shops and restaurants. Staff was nice and helpful,rooms were roomy and clean with great bedding. The breakfast room on the top floor overs a wonderful panoramic view of Geneva to looking towards the French, snow covered mountains as a back-drop. Generous offerings of Swiss croissants, crusty and soft loaves of bread and rolls. The frosted class walls decor of our room was bright and airy. I would highly recommend The Cristal Hotel for quality and price.

One of the beds is too soft, maybe too old.

Hotel Cristal, Geneva
Good location, near train station and very walkable to downtown. Provided free pass for tram/bus/train. Parking is additional at a public garage, but they provide a voucher to reduce the daily cost. Really bad internet, they were "upgrading" while we were there and it got even worse, and they didn't seem to care at all.

Hotel is airconditioned, but the thermostat has a minimum setting around 78 F or 26 C. Room really felt hot.
