Hotel Excelsior, Geneva
Excellent hotel close to Geneva Station and very comfortable. The staff were courteous and breakfast was good too!!

Hotel Excelsior, Geneva
Excellent value
I was so pleasantly surprised by Hotel Excelsior! I mainly decided to stay there because of its location (mine was a short stay): it was very close to the train station and easy to find. However, it turned out to be much more than just a solution to a problem. The room was immaculate. What a treat to find such a clean room to relax in after a hard day. If you are noise sensitive, I recommend staying on the courtyard side (costs a touch more) because there is traffic noise on the side with "city view". Within the hotel itself it was very quiet. Breakfast was more than adequate and nicely presented. Super easy walk to other parts of Geneva and to public transportation (for which the hotel gave a free pass). An excellent value. Only quirk was that there were not many electrical outlets (one near bed and one in bathroom). Still, I would happily stay there again if I need to be in Geneva.

Staff was fabulous. Noisy bar below. Location for the flower clock, water and parks was excellent.

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.
