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.

Graham met another trathlete on the campsite and they decided to travel on the 7.30 bus into Geneva. An early start with number tattoos applied , sun cream on and pre race breakfast. I delivered them to the bus stop and went back to see if there was any other signs of life at base camp. Slowly the campers emerged and prepared themselves for the day ahead in the hot sun, We failed to get to the bus stop by 10am as planned so had to wait another half ann ...
... old town, got the bikes and explored the old harbour area. We rode back to the hotel, and were easily faster than the cars caught in heavy traffic along the coastal road. A couple of huge ferries came into port. Passengers, cars, motor homes and trucks disembarking. We got a pizza and ate it down on the beach. It's been a hot day and we're tired from the early start, but it's a beautiful night, and we watched the fisherman at the end of the beach and the snorkelers just out in the ...
... and I would have to pay again. Anyway with Graham in charge "the operation tandem on roof" went very well and we got out of the car park and back to the tranquility of the campsite. Three tents now set up, on our pitch this is what you call "family camping" . Sarah and Duncan arrived at 10 30 Graham having picked them up from the airport. Not too late a night for the travellers and the triathlete who was going to be up ...
... distract him.
We went over to say hi to the admin assists. They love Riley and that's where the staff keep their coffee etc so it's a good place to leave the croissants. Riley loves going to see them because they always give them treats. He's anyone's friend if they give him cookies. Not even in their office five minutes and they were already offering Riley something to eat. They make me laugh. They offered Riley one of the croissants we brought them. I said no no we're ...
... quite amazing because their are tons of ruins, everything. I can't even count how many ruins we passed on the way to the airport. It's amazing. It's one of the reasons I wanted to move hear, the history. I love just being around it all the time. Just thinking about everything and everyone that has happened on these streets. Riley will obliviously benefit from being here but it's a shame he's not older. We laughed a couple of times on this trip that we're going to be able ...
