          The location was very convenient

          I did not like at all the smell of the room (dasty, and smoky), the very small size of the room, the not safe at all lock on the door. And at the end, the cost of the room (70euro) for one night is not worthed, not even for the location.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Switzerland hotels are extremely expensive. Gervais price was ok compared to Swiss standard. Location is great. Room, toilet clean. But if you are travelling in Summer make sure to request a room with a Fan.

        • Couple

          The hotel was simple but clean. It had character. We were upgraded to a private bathroom after booking online for a shared bathroom which was very nice. Good value for money (for Geneva which is a very expensive city).

          The staff were courteous, helpful and willing to go out of their way to may our stay a pleasant one.

          The staff were outstanding. They were helpful with every type of information. The breakfasts were very good.

        • Single
          6.6

          The hotel is in good location. However, in the summer at least a fan should be provided in each room since the tariff of room is reasonably high.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Nice staff, good breakfast, very cheap.

          no WC in the room.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location. Very clean.

          You get what you pay for, and this hotel is good value for the money. Still, there is definitely a noise problem. Bring ear plugs if you intend to sleep past 6-7 am.

        • Couple
          7.4

          For a one star hotel the room, cleanliness and staff were brilliant. I only shared a bathroom with two other rooms so there were no issues at all with waiting for others. The bathrooms were also kept clean. Breakfast was fine consisting of yoghurt, juice, bread, croissant and coffee- better than I expected for a one-star place.

          The city was in the midst of a heatwave while we stayed there and the hotel had no air conditioning or fans in the room. This led to being unbearabley hot and we ended up buying a small fan.

        • Single
          5.4

          The location is good, close to Cornavin station, around 10 mins by foot.

          The rooms are very small. With windows facing the street, it is very noisy all day long.

        • Single
          5.4

          The staff was excellent - and it was close to the train station but I have never paid so much for so little and I travel (I average 20 hotel stays a year) $140 for an extreamly small and basic room with out it's own bathroom is highway robery. For $140 I stayed in a luxury 4 start suite in Paris near cdg airport, and a very nice hotel downtown Chicago. How can they justify $140 for a hotel that was more like a youth hostel? I feel like I was taken for a huge ride and am not happy.

          Way too expensive for what you get - a small room not decortated - very basic, even the bed was very basic and sub par and without it's own bathroom - had to share

        • Couple
          8.2

          Good sized room, with relatively modern fittings. Location is convenient. Front desk staff very friendly and helpfull. Will stay there again.

          Bathroom could be cleaner.

        • Single
          8.8

          very central and value for money

          the shower is shared and is outside the room
