Historical Traveler Reviews Suisse Hotel Geneva
We found this hotel very convenient. It is right across from the train station, so we didn't have to drag our suitcases around. There is a shopping mall and grocery stores under the station. The street next to the hotel has many restaurants and is a few blocks away from the main bridge crossing the river right at the mouth of Lac Leman. Being so close to the station means that all tram and bus lines are easy access. We can go to any part of the city and don;t have to worry about getting lost, just ride any bus or tram saying Gare Cornavin.
The hotel itself is nicely decorated. We got a room with a view of the station and the church nearby. Very nice, and surprisingly quiet if we keep the window closed. The room and bathroom are exceptionally clean, and the breakfast (included) is excellent. Buffet has many varieties and coffee is ground to order.
Problems: The biggest problem was the mattress was very soft, like it hasn't been replaced since the 1980s. We had a hard time sleeping as a result of that. Another issue is that the bathroom is way too small. I've stayed in over 10 European hotels recently and I've never seen a shower so small. Had a hard time washing and kept hitting the shower curtain. Thankfully it was spotlessly clean. However I did see some other member photos showing a bath, so you may want to ask for a room with a bathtub when reserving.
Overall, nice hotel, but I would research the several other hotels on the same block opposite the station.
Good for a budget hotel
Good location from a convenience viewpoint, albeit not in the best part of town (thereagain near the central train station rarely is).
Clean room, efficient reception - but lacking any real reason to impress.
Good location, great hotel
Last weekend I stayed with my sister to Hotel Suisse in Geneva for 3 nights.
The hotel is just opposite the Main Railway Station (Cornavin Staion), the location is great, very easy to access trains/trams/buses. In 6 minutes we went from international airport to hotel.
The room size was good, bigger than I expected, clean, comfortable and well equiped.
The best of the rooms were the windows, they were noiseless so you can sleep all night very well.
The breakfast was also good, lots of varieties and the staff was helpful and attentive.
The breakfast room was well decorated and you can see a beautiful wiews to Place Corvain.
Reception staff were polite but no a lot hepful.
In 10 minute walks you arrive to Jet d'Eau and the Leman Lake. The Hotel Suisse it's a good election to discover Geneva.
The hotel is just opposite the Main Station, the location is great, very easy to access trains/trams/buses. The fountain can be reached easily by foot.

Great little hotel
As good a hotel in its class as we have stayed. 3 nights during Geneva Motor Show , location opposite Railway station/airport/exhibition hall, all directly accessible, bus station 5 mins. away for trips to other towns - we did a lovely side trip to Annecy. Rooms spotless, as were public areas and breakfast room. Nice breakfast, entirely self-service, but plenty of it.
Reception staff friendly and helpful - good restaurant recommendations!
Good hotel, right next to train station
Good, clean hotel right next to the train station. Close walk to the old town and fountain. Breakfast was good and the staff was helpful and attentive.

... served all the ladies first.
Everyone said a little bit about their time on the trip and I talked about how I loved the experience, the people, and the food.
When we got back to the hotel a hung out for a little bit and then stood up writing a paper for another class, because I knew that if I was tired I would sleep on the plane. I went to bed for an hour then when I woke up I took a quick shower, packed quickly, and went down stairs to eat.
... products in. After the presentation was over we traveled to Vevey Switzerland where the headquarters of Nestle was. The trip to the headquarters was beautiful as I was able to see the Alps in the background. Nestle's building was much larger than I had expected as well as modern. After doing the short group project on Nestle, I was looking forward to seeing everything I had read about. I really enjoyed learning about the company's digital marketing ...
... the smell was so bad. When we got seated the area we were sitting at was not as bad so I decided to stay. I personally did not see the whole point of eatting bread and cheese, so I decided to get paste instead. The paste I ate was so good. I did however try a little fondue from a friend. I thought it was good but i would not personally eat it as a whole meal. I really loved the resturants interior design. It reminded me of a wooden clock almost. The waiters had really cute ...
