    Excellent service by front desk; spacious room, out of anybody’s expectation; very clean and tidy; convenient: near to train station and shops.

    Lighting failed to function properly.

    Very cosy hotel. Everything is very comfortable. Food at the restorant exellent, Room-service exellent. Hotel is just in the centre of Geneva. Very nice place. I prefer to stay at this hotel while in Geneva. 4 stars but superior. Always a pleasure to be there. Staff, services, everything - very high level.

    Good

    The Reception employees behaviour was very bad, no kindness for the customer. None of my demands were accomplished: lake view, big bed and other. But the main problem was the lack of respect and professionalism of the Reception staff.

    Fabulous

    Location is the secret of this hotel, everywhere is a 5 to 10 min walk from there. Views from room is great (pick a room facing the street or the lake). Starpucks is across the street, many restaurants and coffee shops are pretty close by, shopping areas are surrounding the hotel, Staff are so nice and friendly, rooms and bathrooms are clean.

    Rooms are small as most of Europe hotels, price is high, but compared to other hotels at the same level within Geneva, it is quite reasonable. Wifi not reaching rooms, u have to go down to the lobby to use it. Pianist at evening is lovely, but considering the small lobby, the sound is a bit high. I had two single beds joint together to form a double bed, which was not comfortable at all.

    I have stayed here over many years and I am glad the hotel has been improved . The location is very good and the price is good . Like all Swiss hiotels you find comfort and clenliness .

    All over the world check out is midday with flexibility of one hour . This hotel tells you to get out by 11am ! That is not god at all !

    All staff were very good except one

    One lady in the reception was very rude with us and took some more money for things we did not take from the mini bar. I would send her name and detail of this incident if you are interested

    We loved the location - the proximity to the city centre and the beautiful view. The furniture was a little Liberace, but we liked it! The room was very well equipped (delxe double), comfortable, clean and the staff were polite and spoke english very well.

    If I have to put my finger on something - I think all hotels in western Europe should have complimentary wifi in every room. (Though we knew this when we made our booking). The room should also have an iron.
