business hotel in central geneva

The hotel is a well appointed, standard, business hotel located nearby the railway station and walking distance to the lake and main shopping areas/old town. Staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable and appeared recently refurbished. Good British TV channel selection too!

We often stay in Novotels around Europe. This was worse than e.g. London Novotels. The facilities were fine but food quality was average for the price and the area around the hotel is a bit dodgy.

Not a Four-Star

I had booked 3 weeks in advance for a Business trip, including a room booking for a colleague who, upon arrival late in the afternoon, had to accept being lodged in a kind of annex/living room extension on a bed-sofa, due to over-booking.... In short, he did not get the room I had booked for him. My room definitely needed a haul-over, with chinks on the walls, mould in the bathroom and a well worn-off carpet. For one night it was bearable, but I just don´t see how the 4 stars can be justified, more so that the lighting in general makes it look cheaper than it probably is. The Highlight though is the underground carpark - really adventurous and memorable.

Below Par

The only mentionable experience about this Hotel is the Underground parking, with steep slopes, hairpin turns and an exceptionally low ceiling. I had reserved a double room for a colleague, who only received a transformed living room of a Suite (isolated for that purpose) with a bed-sofa and a mini bathroom, as the Hotel was fully booked despite a pre-paid (!)and timely Reservation. As a compensation, he was invited to make free use of the mini-bar, which only contained 4 bottles. My own room, just like the whole Hotel (gym for example) would require a serious renovation: The Corners were not really clean and there was plenty of mould in the bathroom. All in all nowhere near other ordinary 3* Business Hotels.
