Hotel Nash Ville
... All others out on the streets at 11pm we tourists too and didn't know where we should be, so we had to ring Karine, or host, who happily jumped in her car and came to our rescue. Back home and a couple of peppermint teas to warm me up, 1.30am and another lovely night around the table with our new friends. Danielle and Dany, a speech therapist and nurse, are keen to come to Australia so they are asking lots of questions. We hope their dream happens as they are a lovely young ...

... we got a wonderful French Bonjour welcome and walked to the door of the apartment we would share with her and her partner, Patrick, as well as another couple, Danielle from Austria and Dany from France. It had been a long day so after a walk to the lake and a look around we settled on left over cheese, jambon, pâté and baguettes with a bottle of wine. It was meant to be an early night but the others arrived home and we all sat around the dining table chatting till ...
After our leisurely breakfast we had to wash our damp and smelly cycle kit from the last 4 days. We headed off in search of a launderette and were lucky enough to find one 5 minutes from the hotel. We agreed on £20 and left our six bags full and were told to return at 4:30. Lets hope they get it right. The weather was beautiful and warm for our walk around Geneva. One ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nash Ville Geneva
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 We enjoyed the breakfasts and the hotel rooms were well maintained, but somewhat outdated.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.
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 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.
