While the location, 2 short blocks from the main train station (Cornavin) was excellent, there was some issues. The rooms are small (by American standards, maybe typical for Europe). My room had a carpet which looked rather old and dingy. The hot water temperature was very high in the evenings, but the hot water ran out a few of the mornings (around 8AM) as everyone was showering. The breakfast was good but not stellar, a basic European "continental" breakfast. Overall, the rate was excellent for a decent hotel in a very convienient location.

Small simple room, clean but noisy, when windows closed, it' s some hot. There is only a fan in room. Some problems with bathroom, when we take shower, water is here and there on floor all wet. Reception is not so friendly, give us wrong tips for parking fee. No park place but just public place. Free in sunday. Very Good location, 8min walk to the lake and 5min to railway station. A lot of restraunts and bars in surrounding. Good breakfast.

Excellent location. The staff at the front desk on day shift (before 9 or 10pm) was nice but the staff at night shift (after 10pm) was less helpful. The room was dirty and only one light in the room was working. The wall and floor were very dirty. Breakfast was very good.

Very good located, only two streets from the main train station. Breakfast excellent with different types of food, sweet and salty. I chose this hotel for my boyfriend and me, and we loved the stay. The reception staff answers to all your questions and the even recommended us a good swiss typical restaurant that was really good. I will definately come back to this hotel.

This location gives you exactly what you paid for. It is not the 3-star for sure. There was no hairdryer - not a problem for me - I always have my own. Furniture is what you call old-fashion. That was not an air-condition in the room - so if you go in a hot season - be aware. The heating was exellent :-) Ideal for one-two nights stay if you only need the place to sleep and have a shower. Breakfast is really good - fresh bread, coffee, cheese, yougurt, fruit salat etc. Ideally located - just 5 mins to get from railway station. Also very close to the lake. Tourist office is just around the coner. They provide free ticktes for public transport and boats.

large rooms and great location - close to train station and therefore very centrally located. On the other hand, hotel is not precisely new and you can see that re-newing the place has certainly not been a priority of management (bed cover looked like a decade old and we had an armchair in the room that looked as if picked up from a trash container)... place is comfy enough, though far behind from what you'd expect from a 3*** stars accomodation for Geneve... Or maybe that's the reason why the price/quality seems expensive, with Geneve not being precisely heaven for anyone with a limited budget.

The location is very good, but the toilet was very small and the heating in the room was lacking: I had to turn on my hairdryer (that I brought by myself, the room was not provided of it) to warm up the room. In return the price and the location is very good.

I arrived early (at 11 am), and they allowed me to check-in at that time, which I appreciated. The room and bathroom were large by European standards, and they were clean. The room overlooked a side street cafe, which would of course be noisy at night, but it was not so bad as it was a Monday night. The location was good for me -- very close to the train station. They have a room where you can leave your bags if you check out early. I was able to leave my bags there until I was ready to leave at 2pm.

When we checked-in, we were sent to a filthy room that hadn't been cleaned. The carpet was covered in stains and the bed in the room was not the double we had booked. We were finally given a different room, but that room smelled, a light burned out as we entered the room, and if you left the bathroom light on longer than 2 minutes, it smelled like plastic was burning.

HOT, and not in a good way. Yes in was a hot day in Geneve, but this was 3am and it was still over 90 in the room and the open window had zero breeze coming through it. The curtain never moved. Of course opening the window let it very loud street noise. All night long horns honking, large delivery trucks, etc. The pillows were amazing. Usually you can flip over the pillow and it's cooler. These were actually hotter. Moderne, is the worst possible name for this place. I would not stay there again if it were free.

Considering the name of the hotel is "Moderne" we found it very dated - 1950's. The breakfast room was far too small for the number of guests staying in the hotel. Sound-proofing was non-existent. Despite having our internal door closed, noise from the corridor and the adjacent room woke us up several times during the night.

Nous avons été dérangé une bonne partie de la nuit par les occupants de la chambre voisine (555) qui étaient très bruyants (c'est peut-être un cas exeptionnel, nous n'avons passé qu'une nuit). Nous avons apprécié d'avoir une cabine de douche plutôt qu'une baignoire.
