        • Group of friends
          6.6

          The staff was verry helpfull and the roon size was fine. The bathroom was very clean and new design.

          The AC was not cold and we ask them to check the AC. but the problem still the same. The wether outside was cold so we open the window and sleep. The romm was 215

          I stayed during the icelandic volcano eruption. My flight was canceled and I had to look for the train tickets etc. Staff are helpful and friendly. I could've stayed there until flight takes off. However, no one knows when the flight will take off and I found the train tickets. Location was great. I could see the fountain from my room and it is easy to access the old town.

          It would be nice if they have Spa and various beauty services.

        • Couple

          I enjoyed particularly the facilities and the location. Parking is also very useful.

          Very nice staff, excellent location, near shopping centers and close to bus station.

          Location

          The price I got through your site was higher than the prices given to other people who were checking in the same time.Breakfast is poor.

        • Single
          8.2

          Kind staff and the free water and fruit upon arrival. The location could'nt be better!

          As with all Geneva hotels, a bit too pricey for a four-star.

        • Family with children
          3.2

          I don't like anything in the hotel because of the bad staff there I don't recomend it !!!!!

          The unfriendly staff

        • Couple
          7.8

          We had a perfect view from the room 110, starbucks is just opposite of the hotel, restaurants are everywhere... Just perfect

          Although I had paid for superior double, it wasn't as expected.. So I had to pay more to get bigger room and better view.... If the rooms where a bit cheaper, I would just rate the hotel 1000 over 10...

        • Single
          7.0

          Good location close to station and next to the lake. Reception staff were helpful and courteous.

          Asked for poached eggs at breakfast which the waiter and chef claimed never to have heard of and didn't know how to cook.

        • Single
          7.8

          My room had two bathrooms!

          I had a room with no view of the lake, but I guess not everyroom can have one.

        • Couple

          Great location...

          Massive construction site in the area around wakes you up at 8:AM

          9.6

          The location is perfect. The meal in restaurant is perfect.

          The big chair in my room!! Yes it is beaitiful and so mmm aristicratic, but it left so many bruises on my legs...(((

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Well located in the city and we were upgraded to a room with a lovely lake view. The bed was very comfortable and the room size was generous.

          Would have been really nice to have an English speaking movie option.
