Pros: Great room focused on art on with original rooms
Cons: the Room bathroom really need modernizing and focus on cleanliness
Location: Close to the lake and quite central
The hotel has a great concept based on art, and the rooms are very original. However it seems that a compromise is done on the bathroom and appliances quality (bathroom unconvinient and smelly, tv not working..)

Ok for a quick stay

The location of the hotel is really good, about 7 mins walk from the train station and 5 mins walk to the Rue du Mont Blanc -from there you can go to many attractions. There are many restaurants nearby and coop or lidl is about 10 mins walk if you fancy to stock up or get some Souvenirs. However the room is rather small and compact, especially the bathroom. No tea or coffee maker - didn't say anyway. The breakfast is standard and mainly cold dishes. A variety of bakery is provided.

Good hotel at great value.

For the price we paid (£260 for three nights inc breakfast), the hotel offers excellent value for money. It has recently been refurbished and is very contemporary in its style. There is a nice bar, if slightly pricey, a gym and sauna (although we didn't use them) and a perfectly good continental style breakfast buffet. The bedrooms were clean and of a decent size. We were given a twin room for the first night, but when we asked to be moved to a double the next day, the staff were very accommodating. Neither en-suite bathroom had a bath and the shower cubicle had a shower curtain, which is one of my pet hates. However, the bathrooms themselves were perfectly adequate, being clean and bright. The location of the hotel is quite central, with a short walk to the train station/ tram stop and a moderate walk to the lake and main shopping district. The public transport in Geneva is excellent (and free for the duration of your stay) so take advantage !! The only drawback regarding location is that the hotel is on the edge of the red light district. You can see the working girls across and down the street and there are a few pimps/ heavies keeping an eye on them. Do not let this put you off though as we did not find it intimidating and you do not need to walk through the centre of the 'trade' if you head from the hotel towards the town centre anyway. Overall, this hotel is great value for money, which is not something you'll say often in Geneva !!

Accueil chaleureux. Bonne situation.

Pros: L'architecture et la configuration des lieux. La déco générale.
Cons: Le buffet du petit déjeuner. A 9H45, il n'y avait plus grand-chose. Dommage!
Location: Relativement calme, plusieurs boutiques et restaurants. Proche de tout, gare, lac etc.
Bonne expérience dans cet Hôtel. La déco est sympa et l'endroit est calme pour être en centre ville.
