      Good hotel for easy access to the airport. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. WiFi works well (join the IHG Rewards(TM) Club to be given free access to WiFi - it's free to join). There's not much around it for eating out, although the hotel next door has a good restaurant which is open to the public. The staff are efficient and helpful. Breakfast is ok - typically European. Overall a comfortable place to stay.

      Everything We Needed

      We wanted a hotel near the airport for convenience and the Holiday in is only about 1 km from the airport. They also offer a free shuttle service that picks you up and if needed drops you off at the airport. We arrived early and although and room wasn't ready thet were happy to keep our bags checked while we explored the city. They also issued us with Public Transport tickets so we could travel free of charge (this is a generally available service with hotels). The room itself was quite spacious and came with coffee and tea facilities although there was no fridge in the room. This may not be common on Europe but is in Australia. The room and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended

      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Geneva Airport

      Shoddy Airconditioning

      from

      The Express by Holiday Inn Geneva Airport was a typical Holiday Inn hotel. Clean, affordable, free continental breakfast but the only problem was with the airconditioning, which was not cold enough. Other than that, it was good value for the money.

      Good for Quick Business or Overnight Before Flight

      from

      Stayed at the HI Express Geneva Airport the night before an early flight to Paris, so I was merely looking for a nice bed near the airport.

      For the price, the hotel is a good value as the room was very clean, somewhat large (based on Euro standard) and had nice information features, such as a TV with many channels and text-access and what I thought was the best feature -- free wireless internet in the lobby. This was the first night I had free internet in my 10-night stay in Italy and Switzerland. I think this is a very nice thing for business travelers - and it is inexpensive for the hotel. Service at the very small lobby bar was good and fast.

      There is no food in the hotel, but it is very easy to go to the airport via the hotel shuttle, or, I would recommend quick walk over to the Movenpick Hotel where they have many restaurants. I ate at the Japanese Restaurant and had some VERY good sushi -- I learned later that the restaurant was the best in the city for sushi.

      Good Value in this super expensive country

      from

      Who would have thought that you could pay 20 dollar for a regular McDonald's meal, or 30 bucks for a pound of ham at Carre Four (Europe's Wal-Mart).

      This is the reason why this hotel is so good. You get the value of a Holiday In an with a 30-40 minute ride to downtown Geneva. Transportation was very easy waling 500 meters to the bus stop and taking number 9. You could easily acces the red cross or UN by taking a bus in from of the hotel.

      The staff was amazingly multilingual and polite. The rooms well appointed with enough room for four people. We had two for 7 people and did not feel crowded...well I share with three women, so the shower was tough, but that was not the hotels fault.

      The have a free shuttle to the airport which makes it very convenient to make it you base and no worry about any luggage hauling. The price was decent and there is a Carre Four about 500 meter away, which means you can buy stuff for dinner, because believe me this is an expensive city.

      I would definitely recommend this hotel to all who are willing to sacrifice a 30 minute rid to downtown for a good clean quality hotel with free (limited) buffet breakfast.

      Perfect for the last night......

      from

      Stayed here on last night of a three-week European trip, October 2004. An ideal conclusion...especially after some very smoky, old worn hotels. Only five-minutes from airport and airport train station, convenient shuttle, spotlessly clean, well-designed, perky overnight rooms, reasonably priced, good soound-proofing, generous buffet breakfast, everything at peak efficiency....and the entire seventh floor is non-smoking. What a concept!

      Just perfect for a final night of checking reservations, re-packing, and getting a good night's sleep before the long flight home.

      Modern and comfortable

      from

      Did the job, Convenient for both the airport, which has a shuttle bus, and the town. The bus to town goes from the overhead motorway by the Carrefour shopping centre. This shopping centre also has a brilliant self service restaurant (Mandora) which is very cheap by Swiss standards and plenty of choice

      Could do better...

      from

      This hotel is OK for a quick overnight before a flight, but you could probably do better. The architecture is uninspiring - it stands like a big stainless-steel brick in the center of a wide expanse of asphalt - and the decor is Euro-Jetson's modern. When I checked in around 5 PM the hotel seemed pretty empty. Nevertheless I was given a room in which there was no pillow on the bed and the toilet didn't flush (no water). You'd think they'd keep track of such things. To their credit, the staff was very courteous and they gave me another room immediately. Problem was, it was on the noisy side of the hotel, facing the main drag that goes by the airport. The soundproofing was so bad, I kept looking to see if my window was open a crack. And I was on the 5th floor, too. Bottom line: try the other Geneva airport hotels before you go for this one, unless the price is especially low, or the others are full.

      Excellent Value

      from

      I stayed here at the end of March 2004 and enjoyed my one night stay. A very good location just a short distance (by shuttle) from the terminal at Geneva Airport. The room was clean, modern, comfortable and good value. I stayed in a room with a Queen size bed which also has a small desk and sofa. Check in/out was quick and efficient.

      Fine

      from

      Stayed January 04. The hotel is modern and clean. Selection is great for continental breakfast. Take care if your flight arrives late, as the shuttle bus to the hotel stops at 11.30. As the hotel is only a 20 minute walk, taxis often refuse to take you there. This is a problem if like me, you don't know the way and it is snowing heavily! On a very convenient regular bus route that will take you easily to the airport/ palexpro/ nations. Change at nations to go to the city centre (overall about 30 minutes).

      Acceptable for a short stay

      from

      The HI Express at the Geneva Airport is rather new, very clean, but appears rather utilitarian. Rooms are small by North American standards but typical for Europe. Hotel has free breakfast with some hot items; free airport shuttle van service. Parking is like everywhere else in Geneva...pay per hour. For being close to the airport, the hotel is quiet though.

This can not really be described, I am thankful as many people do not get to say they had the opportunity of doing this.     In the beggining it was really cold and a bit difficult to breathe. Shortly after adjusting to the climate it got much better. After enjoying our time on top we went to the cable car and to ...
