We needed more than a week and had business in Geneva, but wanted to do it for less than the Geneva hotels do. That worked. Just a kilometre across the border into France, prices are significantly cheaper than in the city. The hotel staff were always nice and helpful. The breakfast is good and quality food. Size of rooms is also good for a 3 star. The carpets in the aisles need to be replaced, they are very used. The room cleanliness is not always great, and they will only make the room every few days. The internet is incredibly slow, and costs extra. But if you have a Swiss SIM card in your phone you still get the Swiss signal and don't need to go on roaming.
The halls and stairs are currently being renovated because they are quite tatty but our bedroom and the communal dining areas were lovely. Our room had 4 beds and was very spacious and the location is perfect for exploring the town centre.
Room was a bit small, and bed was a fold out sofa, but it did have a kitchen, which was small but clean, and had all the right things, pots pans knives and forks etc.
We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Ok for a few nights or if like us you were leaving early from the airport.
Self-catering hotel just across the border in France. The kitchen was small but sufficient for basic cooking. Choice of supermarkets within walking distance. Helpful, English speaking, staff. There's a pool which I didn't use. Would definitely stay there again.
"Good hotel close to Geneva airport ( French side) "
Chose this hotel as its about 10 mins drive from Geneva airport on the French side. Basic but comfortable hotel. Free airport transport from 0630 to 2230, does help as from the airport each day we took the train into Geneva city. Not much around the hotel ( petrol station, McDonald's and 2 other restaurants 5 mins walk away).
I would recommend as its convenient and because of the free shuttle, but not to stay at more than a few days.
Really nice hotel in a lovely town close to Geneva (20 minutes by bus). Staff were really friendly, and as a single British female travelling alone who doesn't speak much French, they made me feel really welcome. Would absolutely recommend it.. Good value for money too! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would love to go back :)
