Nice hotel, dodgy area

This hotel stands out in the area. It is in good conditions and it appears recently refurbished. The staff is very nice. The rooms are ok, amenities basic. One can be easily intimidated by the prostitutes outside the hotel, but that is the area - as it is in many countries near the train stations. Its is safer to use the back entry (not from Rue Berne) as it is safer and nicer read hotel review

Actually a convenient area but Rue de Bern is right in red light district so exit/entry the hotel from Rue Neufchatel entrance instead and you avoid the sex-traffic. Close to the lake and the fancy hotels so very good for a night stay. read hotel review

Good no-nonsense hotel near Geneva Station
  • Recommended hotel
  • Singles
  • Business trip
  • October 2013
This hotel provides a functional, clean room, without much else, for a very decent price (given that this is Geneva). As in most hotels in Geneva, the room is rather small, but there is free Wifi, radioclock and TV in the room. The hotel is located near the Cornavin station in the red light district, but it is safe. Cold breakfast is included, and the items offered are of high quality (fantastic bread, croissants, Nespresso coffee, fresh fruits, boiled eggs,...). In summary: a no-nonsense hotel for a decent price. read hotel review

Central location hotel
  • Recommended hotel

  • August 2013
I have already stayed in this hotel in past. The rooms are a bit smaller and there is limited storage space but the advantage of this hotel is central location (walking distance to Cornavin central railway station / tram and bus stop), also close to lake. Wifi is available and free. Breakfast offer is slightly smaller than in past but still comparable with 3 star hotel in general. read hotel review

Nice atmosphere in the lobby, a very well equipped gym. Large deficiency however the clairaudience of the single rooms. My left neighbors i could loud and clear snoring. From the room to the other side were the keystrokes its laptops to hear. A quiet room looks differently. read hotel review

Affordable City Hotel, but hardly comfort archived

In expensive Geneva to find an affordable single room is a challenge. Windsor is located in the red light district and in the evening is very busy. One is better too Secondly on the way. The hotel boasts a design hotel, but the furnishing in spite of renovation a few years ago, the charm of the 70er sprays. If you speak good French, you should at the front desk for a room at the rear and A, that is not right next to the elevator is located. The guaranteed but not the night's sleep, because the location and the right ... quite a boisterous clientele general back to the hotel. Conclusion: if you want to stay cheap central Geneva standards and can do without the comfort, this is the place to stay. Because of the perfect connection to the public transport and the short distances are next time we take a hotel nearby the airport, the modern and the location is quiet. read hotel review
