I have stayed at this hotel many times and always am pleased with the facilities, the price, the location, and the staff. The hotel is immaculate and very modern. The rooms are a bit small by US standards but normal sized for Europe. The location directly across from the train station is perfect for connections to Geneva Airport, seven minutes away by train. The staff is very helpful, and the petit dejeuner a bargain.

Price varies by demand which somehow does not respond to customer that first come first serve should recieve same rate as check in for the first time

Edgy staff in an overhyped and highly strung city. The area just next to the central train station is very unsafe. Within minutes of pulling up at the hotel entrance, there was an attempted break into my car. Unfriendly and unhappy staff who are really not interested in serving customers. then again, that is what Swiss attitude is on the whole. Come and pay through lots, but, do not expect any service in return.

WIFI in the rooms is not operating efficiently, thus obliging clients to go in the lobby. That SHOULD be improved.

The room was nice and clean, but their breakfast is terrible. The hotel is well located for transport and restaurants, but we can feel trains passing. Not worth the price. There are much better hotels in Geneva for less.

Nice room, quiet spacious and clean. Helpful and friendly staff. While perhaps not the most charming location in Geneva, it is certainly quite convenient - immediately adjacent to train station - and a ~15 minute walk from the old city.

Switzerland is always expensive but this is a first class hotel. The breakfast in the panoramic room on the 8th floor was accompanied by fantastic views. The location, close to the main transport hub, is extremely convenient.

The modern minimalist decor is great but functionally it's a problem. *** I was trapped in the shower and had to disassemble the drain hole to lever the door open which was extremely difficult as the floor was wet and slippery. The doors need to be redesigned with something that you can grip instead off a fingertip depth recess to slide the door. It would have been extremely dangerous for anyone fragile.
