Historical Traveler Reviews Suisse Hotel Geneva

Convenient Hotel

from

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

from

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

from

Hi,

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.

Great Location!

Great little hotel

from

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

from

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.

... have already dipped into the wine) before crashing. We have a full day of Orientation and then a scavenger hunt tomorrow, so we are starting right into the hustle and bustle.

It's weird to be here. And weird to think about how this is where I'll be for the next four months. But I'm sure as classes start and I start finding a routine, it will all start to feel quite normal. I just hope I get a little bit better at French...

Day One: Sleep Deprivation and the Color Turquoise

... is a city deep in gray scale - the mist off the lake mutes most of the buildings to white or dull stone colors, and I have yet to see a local wearing anything but black. Even the other study abroad students seem to all be wearing black, while I am very warm but not particularly sleek or urban in my turquoise coat and cargo ski pants.

Bright side: I am one of the few study abroad students that I've met so far who speaks French! I'm ...

Packing, packing and flying

Today was purely about getting off and ready to go.

Rob went round to fix Suzy's tire first thing and make sure she was good to go again. We packed and jammed and weighed for a few hours. Then took off to the train at Bare. We got to Manchester Airport in good time and checked through all okay until security Honestly they are worse the Australia. Our bag had to be scanned again, even after they had checked it - twice!

... made me feel right at home. Phillip Ménard, a one-man-blues-band, performed all sorts of blues tunes, in English, that it caught me by surprise when he kept speaking in French in between the songs, lol. He was quite talented and it was really nice to get out, be a part of the local scene and hear some great music.

The apartment I'm staying in is quite cozy and my host is ...
