Nice hotel and cute!
Nice hotel. Breakfast was good. Easy access to anywhere as the train station is less than 2mins walk. The place to have breakfast is on the 8th floor and the view is beautiful!

Convenient and quite
Great location, on a side street , quiet and safe. 1 block from Cornavin train station. (15 mns from airport station) Super convenient, walkable to everywhere. Room was spacious with practical design, bed comfortable but pillow soft though. Breakfast is avwrage in Switzerland standard but more sufficient. They gave the travel card so no need to pay for public transportation which is superbe. Will definitely recommend

Very close to train station
We are happy with this hotel. very close to the station, many restaurants near by, short walk to Geneva Lake. The room is clean, and nice layout, good size shower. It has may shelves. The shower/toilet is in a separate room and the sink is outside. This helps when multiple people can get ready at the same time. A couple minor things to add is if we can have towel/clothes hooks inside the shower room, and the key card instead of heavy metal key to carry with us. We will stay here again.

Great stay
Very clean, very friendly, absolutely no problems. The friendliness of the staff stood out. 4 minute walk to the tram. Breakfast was plain but good. Coffee was excellent which means a lot. I will certainly be back.
