Very Good8.0
Ideally located between Central Station (Cornavin) and business/touring center, all at walking distance. No air conditioning, though.

Convenient location and comfortable room.
The hotel is conveniently located a few minutes of walking from the Geneva train station. Walking to the lake and old town is also a few minutes. There are many nice restaurants nearby. The building is kind of old, but the room is very clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast has a lot of choices. A twin-bed room is good for two adults. A family of four need to book two rooms. One of our rooms doesn't have enough towels which is odd. Overall good experience.
