About Hôtel de Genève

Situated in the very heart of Geneva, Hotel de Geneve brings a bit of the Alps into the city with its cheerful Swiss chalet inspired décor and furniture.

The rooms themselves break with the Swiss chalet theme running through the public areas, and are fairly standard modern rooms. Each features en-suite bathroom, TV, telephone and soundproof windows.

Reception is open limited hours and can assist with tours, transfers and local information. Tea and coffee is available at reception, and free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

Breakfast is available every morning in a room that will have you believe someone transported you to the Alps while you slept. Reception staff will be happy to offer good local dining recommendations.

De Geneve is very centrally situated. The city’s main station is just 600 yards from the hotel, while the lakeshore, from where the iconic Jet d’Eau is visible, is just 700 yards away.

Positive Reviews

Good value for Geneva

While no guest thought that their room-rate was particularly cheap, when compared to what else was available in central Geneva at that price they felt they received good value for money.

Excellent central location

The hotel's location at the heart of the city was perhaps what guests most appreciated about de Geneve. They liked they could walk to all the services and attractions they wanted to see, and not bother with complicated public transport or very expensive taxis.

Charming decor

While it wasn't to everyone's taste, the Swiss chalet decor did have quite a few fans, who found it gave the hotel a homely feel it would not otherwise have had. They certainly liked it more than they would have the neutral and inoffensive style used by modern chain hotels.

Negative Reviews

Very small rooms

There were many complaints that the rooms were too small. Unfortunately guests couldn't think of any solution, since hotel rooms in Geneva in that price range are pretty much always tiny.

Only French channels

Surprisingly for a city, and nation, which is so international in its outlook, guests report that there were only French language stations available on the hotels TV service. While it is always fun providing ones own subtitles to foreign language programs on the fly, this is not everybody's cup of tea, and many would just have liked the opportunity to watch a program or two in their own language.

Very noisy neighbourhood

Perhaps surprisingly for Geneva, the area around the hotel was described as very noisy at night, with both cars and revellers leaving the neighbourhood bars getting the blame.
