Aside from the having to work bit, I had a great time in Geneva this trip. It was so much more enjoyable than my last visit for two big reasons: I had great company and great weather.
Our first day there we arrived in the early afternoon so we had time to explore the Old Town and walk around the lake. The city is already warming up for …
Switzerland is bloody expensive, ever heard a 13 CHF fast food meal at maccas? I mean, what the hell is going on there?
I spent the day at CERN, the birthplace of internet and also many countless inventions that advanced our society since the 1950s. Although my tour was in French, my strong physics background sort of managed my way through …
The least expensive ticket we could book from Amsterdam to Paris happened to have a 10 hour layover in Geneva, Switzerland. Lucky for us this gave us a chance to bop around this BEAUTIFUL city.
We got off the plane and found that the train was free to get from the airport into central Geneva (score!). We wandered directly down from the train station to Lake Geneva where we saw a bridge covered with Swiss flags and Geneva's flags, docks ...
Today I woke up early at 06h and went for a lovely run and had a nice workout in the park overlooking lake Geneva it was a clear morning and so I could see all the way out to the Mountains it was lovely. Once Gen arose a couple hours later we left the house we are staying and went to the Chateau de Chillon a castle just an hour or so away from Geneva - it was suggested by our host and I am glad we went. The castle was beautiful and we rented head sets in English ...

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.
The room size was good, bigger than I expected. The room and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was also good, lots of varieties.
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.
