    Location is synonymous to the definition of convenience in this case. The hotel is right next to the commuter rail and local tram stations. Its proximity to the center of Geneva (and its old town) allows one can to walk its center without a problem. Plenty of restaurant choices and places to purchase Swiss products. Less than 5-min walk to the the lake. With the room windows open there's some noise from the trains (for the picky ones who live in a vacuum and can't sacrifice their sweet convenience for location) but with the windows closed the room is absolutely quiet so I'll confidently say that this is NOT a drawback.

    Reasonable prices. Excellent breakfast. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Awesome location. Fantastic view. Very well sound proof and temperature controlled rooms.

    Only two tea bags a day is not enough and with the TV it would be nice to see what was available on the Satellite programs before committing the dollars

    The location is good, right opposite the railway station.

    Hotel staff are not very helpful. Some of them seem unpatient. They don't offer you information unless you ask.

    We liked the hotel, the room was clean, very close to the city center and we got free transport card, which was pleasant. Breakfast was small.

    Excellent t location for singles and couples but not for family with children. Very clean and new. I will stay there if the rate is reasonable, say $US300.

    Convenient location, price reasonable for the area

    Staff not very friendly or helpful. Temperature in Geneva was over 30 deg. C (87 deg. F). Hotel advertises air conditioning but it is set at a very high temperature level and there is no air moving. Rooms were quite warm and stuffy. No fans available. Leaving window open is not good as it opens on the small balcony shared by several rooms creating an issue with security, and it is very noisy. Also hotel uses the old style very heavy room keys so they are left at the desk when going out. No identification was requested upon returning to room and requesting room key.

    Breakfast wasn't included in the price, and it should clearly state
