    Central position

    Breakfast, Old building, noisy, over expensive for the offer, no parking lot sufficient for guests.

    The attention and care of the staff

    The building is very old and no recent refurbishes seem to have been done for some time now.

    Staff was helpful with taxis, getting around, the basics...

    No internet access in the rooms, outdated rooms, breakfast was not included - offers no frills.

    The hotel is set in a good location. Just next to a metro station.

    The room could use a more updated decor. The metro can be loud sometimes. Quite small rooms.

    Good

    Staff were hepful and freindly. The location was not far from the city centre and the lake.

    The rrom was very small. There was one lift only which was tiny. The selection in breakfast menu was limited. There was no internet connection in rooms which is I would expect with the price I paid for.

    Guest rating

    Free Internet connection in the room. That is very rare anywhere. Very nice and helpful staff.

    Beds were dirty, I had itches the whole night. Linens felt stale and crumply as well. No toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, robes, slippers provided.

    Convenient location. Staff was kind.

    Very small room and bathroom. Very small and badly mantained elevator. Poor (yet relatively expensive) breakfast.

    Free minibar and technology involvements

    The hotel had just opened to accommodate the biennial motor parts show, so the staff were still training, and there were problems with the technology invovlements in the room. Also, it was in an area with nothing around it - no corner stores, no alternative restaurants.

    Guest rating

    good location

    1. no tea-coffee facilities in the room 2. receptionist collected car keys to park the car then most likely drove it somewhere nearby. 3. maybe I just did not like Geneva very much)
