Positive Reviews

Convenient and nice walk to lake, old town.

Cornavin’s location next to Cornavin train station,makes it a convenient choice for those passing through, the lake and the old town are a short but pleasant walk away and the hotel is well-connected for public transport, which you can use for free with t

Comfortable room with great Wi-Fi.

The rooms here have very quick, complimentary Wi-Fi, experience no noise with windows closed, even though the hotel is next to the train station, are clean, relatively spacious for Geneva, and some have stunning views across the lake to the old town.

Great breakfast views.

Even if you do not have a lake view from your room, do not worry — you can enjoy it from the eighth floor breakfast room.

Negative Reviews

Rooms not particularly inspiring.

Although some rooms appear to be recently refurbished and modern, others have been referred to a few times as being dated, not particularly large and nothing special.

No proper bar and breakfast questionable.

If you want a proper bar and lounge to relax in, the lobby bar may not cut the mustard, and given the expensive price of the breakfast, a handful of guests were unhappy with the range and quality of goods.

Better climate control needed.

Based on the experiences of others, there is a chance you may find it hard to control the temperature of the air conditioning in your room, and a few guests have been faced with the choice of overheating or opening the window to train noise.
