Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nash Ville Geneva
Red Light District Takeover
I stayed here with my wife for 4 nights from 30 March to 2 April. The hotel itself is fine, with friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the hotel rooms were well maintained, but somewhat outdated. The hotel interior is in need of an upgrade. However, the main problem is that the growing red light district of Geneva is overtaking the location of the hotel. On all 4 nights we had prostitutes soliciting for clients at each corner of the block outside the hotel. We found it impossible to ignore the intrusive attentions of the girls and the associated pimps, and it spoiled our visit. The noise in the street outside the front went on until 4am on Friday and Saturday nights. Commiserations to the staff of the hotel, who cannot be blamed for the situation they find themselves in.
Huge disappointment at the Tryp Bern
We just returned from Geneva and had the misfortune of booking at the Tryp Bern. The auto show was in town and the first night we paid $143.00, the second night cost us $543.00! I wouldn't reccommend this place to anyone at any price! The room was so small that there was no room to open a suitcase - it had a huge cobweb on the ceiling, the people at the front desk were very unfriendly and they wouldn't allow you to bring a cup of coffee up to the room in the morning! Oh and did I mention it is right next door to a "Sex Shop".
In the red light district, hookers everywhere - not a family friendly hotel. Very noisy and air conditioning did'nt work so windows had to be open. Room extremely small and unimpressive facilities.
Don't normally complain but this is NOT a 4 star hotel and I was very glad to leave
Easy access to all amenities
Hotel is central, easy to get to from railway/bus terminus (5 mins walk).
Very helpful, knowledgable and friendly staff on reception.
Breakfast served 'til 10am, but choice had depleted by 9.30am.
Rooms clean and warm. Hairdrier provided tho' it doesn't say so on hotel web page.
It is in the red light district, but the 'ladies' are not obtrusive in any way!
Excellent restaurant in the next street up - Jeck's Place - Thai/Asian food. Very good choice, service and value for money.
Demi Lune Cafe in the Vielle Ville is great for lunch; comfy sofas, candles and cosy atmosphere.
Green light for this red light district hotel
I was apprehensive about booking, via the chain's own website, this very reasonably priced SolMelia hotel in Geneva. You would not know this from the site but I knew that this hotel, a couple of blocks from the main rail station, was on a street in the centre of Geneva's compact red-light district, meaning that for a block in any direction you will find a few sleazy nightclubs, hookers and sex shops. However, my expectations were confounded - this was an oasis of pleasant service, cleanliness, friendliness and general niceness. The decor is of a very good standard, the rooms reasonably large (by Geneva standards) and the front desk people unfailingly friendly and helpful. If you can tolerate the "lively" character of the immediate environs, and less than perfect sound insulation in rooms with connecting doors, this is a good-value choice and very conveniently located for the businness area and international organisations. By the way, the street life is completely non-threatening, regardless of your age/gender, but I don't think I would book my next family holiday in this part of town. Only down side: I was billed for a breakfast I didn't have, but it was dropped without question when I queried it. I'll be back.
We'll be back
We have had some experience of this hotel group having stayed at a sister hotel in London. An experience so enjoyable that it was the deciding factor in booking this hotel for our Geneva trip and again we were pleasantly surprised. The room was small but very comfortable with dressing gowns, slippers and drinking water supplied. The decor was to a high standard with cable tv (if you had time to watch) and the bathroom was spotless. The staff were extremely helpful and although the hotel is in the "red light" district, it felt very safe and unobtrusive. We found the location very central for getting about and there is an abundance of cafes and good quality restaurants nearby, often hidden away in side streets. if we ever return to Geneva I would have no hestitation in staying here again. Thank you for making our trip so pleasant.
I stayed at this Hotel while visiting the Geneva Motor show. The hotel is centrally located, 5 minutes from the Cornavin station. The rooms are very comfy, staff very warm and pleasant and they each spoke minimum of 3 languages. I was offered bathrobes, bath slippers, complimentary drinks and the staff were very helpful in giving directions to anywhere.
I will definitely stay here again...
Visitors should know that Geneva has a side to it, which is adult entertainment.
We liked it!
We stayed at this hotel in Sept 2004 and we had a very pleasant experience. The building is horrible from outside but it's fine inside. The room was quite small but not unconfortably small. The bathroom was nice and everything was very clean. We read complaints about the breakfast but I must say that it wasn't too bad at all. We had fresh croissants, eggs, sausages, fresh orange juice etc etc
The hotel is located 3 minutes walk from the main station and that is a real bonus. What might bother some people are the sex shops and strip joints neighbouring the hotel. The area though is still safe and colourful.
I would definitely stay there again.
De Berne: Okay but some problems
We stayed at the de Berne over New Year's Eve 2002/2003. The hotel interior is better than its outer appearance with clean, comfortable, small to medium-sized rooms.
The hotel was advertised as having a restaurant and a bistro, which, however, turned out to have been closed over the Christmas Season. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, as there was a breakfast buffet built up in the breakfast room, but people weren't allowed to help themselves, unless they had booked it and paid extra. This was, however, not made clear to guests at all, so that the staff constantly had to keep an eye on guests who mistakenly went for the buffet - which, not suprisingly, happened all the time. In fact, during the three-day period I didn't see a single guest who would have been allowed to legitimately take food from the buffet. The complementary breakfast was less impressing and would have suited a two-star establishment more than a four-star. Guests seemed often short of butter, which came in small pre-packed portions, but the staff didn't appear too happy about providing more than what you'd paid for. The whole breakfast experience was so embarrassing, that I considered skipping it altogether the next day. Even though it wasn't a negative experience altogether, if I went to Geneva again, I'd probably book a different hotel.

Last weekend I had Friday off again, and so a few of us went to Lausanne for the day. Lausanne is a college town on Lake Geneva, 40 minutes away by train. We went with no game plan, and the desire to spend as little money as possible. When we got there, we ended up just ...
... Luckily, one of the women could translate a little bit for us. After lunch, we hiked back down, although a different way, passing through many cows and their manure. Feeling lost, we asked other hikers along the way which was to Geneva, and we made it. Hiking was by far my favorite part of the weekend. Straight from our hike, our sweaty selves took the bus to a metro, and the metro ...
... reduce the price - and they did!! Awesome of them as we saved a further $80!! And the bigger bonus was our room was ready too. It's only small but comfortable enough. We dump our bags and then proceed to head into the world to see what's on offer. We have no idea what we are going to do here haha...so it could be fun.First thing we've noticed is Geneva is majorly full of super wealthy people! Like just walking down the main avenue of the ...
... at the same time? He only has 10 fingers!'. I really like listening to the piano. Some piece can really tell a story and take you on a journey across mountains and dessert, through happiness and hardship.
Tonight, we listened to a contemporary piece, Musica Nara, written by Minako Tokuyama (very jazzy and fresh, perfect to start and get people in the mood), then two pieces by Chopin (Fantaisie-improptu op. 66 and Ballade n°1 in sol minor ...
... ve est l’une des villes les plus chères du monde. Bon évidemment mon salaire est en conséquence donc je devrais m’en sortir. Les seul prix que j’ai en tête pour l’instant sont ceux de l’immobilier. Il faut compter entre 1000 et 1300 francs pour un studios de 30 m² maximum (ça fait entre 800 et 1150€). Et puis au resto pas moyen de trouver quoi que ce soit à moins de 20 francs (16€).
