Clean, quiet, and pleasant sleep.

Wel located, but no aircon and rather dirty

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Location is good, no aircon is not of these times anymore. It was hot! The cleaning lady said the management has switched it off, the lady at the Novotel counter says it should work, the manager behind the desk says there is no aircon, and the unit is only blowing air. He was clearly lying, and that is the worst thing you can do to a customer.

Badly managed, unhygenic and non-responsive

When I entered the room for the first time I noticed that the sheets had stains, the bathroom stank and the AC didn't work. It was late so I didn't make much fuss. However the next day my room wasn't cleaned despite me leaving the instructions. In fact, it wasn't even visited. So when I came back to the room on the 2nd of my stay, I was welcomed by an even dirtier room., especially the shower which still had the towels from last night. I complained again only to receive fresh towels and not even a proper apology. I had to figure out myself that the AC was switched off from the mains, which by the way still didn't work properly after I switched on the mains from an obscure electrical box in the room. I was extremely uncomfortable through out my stay - in a hot and unhygienic room. I couldn't leave the windows open because of the very high levels of noise outside - the red light district location doesn't help when you want a peaceful sleep. Overall, I was shocked beyond belief at the level of discomfort and poor hygiene, even worse was the lack of any sincere apology, let alone any efforts to resolve the situation. I have been travelling the world for over 2 decades. This was genuinely my worst ever hotel stay!

Good Stay

andyA8076QL Business - TripAdvisor review

Dingy. All a bit dingy & dirty, unfriendly personnel starting at check-in and continuing with (all at Novotel, who do not treat the resident‘s guests as theirs). Genevians are actually friendly people. But not here. Price to quality is low. Not a place to return to.

Property not up to standard of ALL standard. Clean but shabby

gruber2021 TripAdvisor review

The room did not have courtains that obscure completely (too short) and with streetlight it would have been impossible to sleep. However persons at receptions were very understanding and gave me a room in Novotel. Highly appreciated.

Worst hotel stay ever

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

kevinA5244FV Business - TripAdvisor review

The rooms look like prison cells (imagine worn & dirty floors, disgusting paintwork that looks grimy & dirty sheets) and pair that with absolutely no sound- proofing plus no front desk in the actual building (you have to use Novotel desk down the road to check in) and you've got the worst hotel stay I've ever had. I travel a lot and this was by far the worst hotel and still relatively expensive (£270 for two nights).

Convenient location.... Thats it!

Old and smelly apartment style accom near the station and the Lake. The room's were very clean though and the 2 room's that I saw both had newly renovated bathrooms. The room has a small fridge and crockery/cutlery for 2. Checkin is around the corner at the Novotel. The Residence is located right in the heart of 'the red light district' at night so if you think that this is an issue for you then keep that in mind. I probably wouldn't stay here again but Geneva accom is VERY expensive.

very good stay

VGriet Business - TripAdvisor review

The residence studio was easy to find. check-in was easy as was placed next to Novotel. It is perfect for longer stays as it has good internet, little kitchenette and good sanitary facilities. I would definitely recommend

Horrible experience

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

coucou102015 Families - TripAdvisor review

It was a horrible experience. The hotel is old and the room is so small that we even don't have the space to put the luggages.The bathroom is dirty and old: we even cannot take a shower by standing because the shower is fixed very low on the wall. There's nothing to do with the photos. The reception should be done in the Novotel nearby, when I showed the confirmation email to the reception lady, she said in a distaining way:"oh~it's residence studio." I cannot say that it's a warming welcome. Her manner was totally different when she treated with the guests before us (British Airway pilots who made check-in in Novotel)

Upgrade appreciated

We reserved the Residence Studio because the price was better than at other hotels in the area. When we arrived, we were upgraded to the hotel room. So we can't comment on the Studio, but the hotel was great. Spacious, clean and comfortable. Thanks!

Hotel is located on the edge of the red light district -opposite a bar/restaurant where business goes on for most of the night. No kettle/possibility of making a hot drink in the room unless an additional 100 CHF is paid for access to a kitchenette -not worth it for a short stay. 15 minute wait to check out -only to pay citytax as room prepaid!

Are probably former student appartments. The price is far too high for the quality, but might be related to the size. Lots of prostitution on the streets surrounding the building at night. Does not give a safe feeling when returning at night.

Ugly Hotel

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

alexneko Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

Although the hotel is located in Red Light district, I do not understand why it is so ugly. Room smelled badly, the walls were dirty, bath was bad cleaned. However Geneva is a pricy city, there is nothing in this hotel that may cost 100 USD per night.

Still something missing

kentamani Business - TripAdvisor review

I do not expect much with this room price in Geneva. Though worn out mattress (I complained receptionist at check-out). The quality of room is far from that of other accor budget hotels (Ibis, Etap, etc). Some strangers standing around the entrance. Kitchen use is not included in the price. They request extra the same cost of breakfast (around 30 Franc per day). The receptionist is polite and friendly. Security is fine. WiFI is fine. There are many places for breakfast near the hotel (Mac-cafe etc).

Very good service and availability all necessities

Nicehotel2013 Business - TripAdvisor review

I stayed four days in Novotel's Residence studio. The price was very cheap and the services were very great. The personnel was always supportive, helpful and respectful. Hotel provides WiFi, all needed emergency items. They even have a free computer in the lobby to work with.

cheap, well central located, a bit 80's

nonametravellor Business - TripAdvisor review

you get what you pay for. It's not modern and fancy, but if you look for a cheap place to stay IN the city, it's quite ok. Ok, there's a little bit of mold in the quite ancient bathrooms, but it's clean and connected to the Novotel next door. the rooms could definitely need refurbishing, but you wont get that price anymore.

Drab, dark, old rooms with old furniture in the middle of the red light district. Room was clearly unused for some time before I arrived as it was dusty and dirty but the daily service was good thereafter.

silvana p Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

Bad location, in the red zone of the city. African drug dealers and prostitutes outside the hotel and all along street Berne. Not safe area. Very different from Novotel, much better, it doesn't look like the same company. Smell in bathroon, yellow water some days. They don't have cleaning service on weekends! Good points: internet service.

good location
