I was on a short visit attending a conference at the Congress Centre. The hotel proved perfect for this. It was easy to get to from the airport with the #5 bus stopping just a few minutes walk away. The main Cornavin station and downtown area is only about a 10 min walk away, and the Congress Centre nearer. The hotel is very modern with helpful staff and comfortable rooms with free wifi. Breakfast was a pleasant continental buffet. By Geneva standards it was reasonably priced, helped by the fact you are given a free transport ticket for the duration of your stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Geneva.

My friend and I stayed in Geneva for two nights and we loved this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and it was adorable! If you are looking for a quaint little boutique type of hotel, this place is for you.
The breakfast that is included is great and enough to hold you over if you want to eat a small lunch. They also had water and coffee available all day in the lobby. It's only a short walk to Lake Geneva.

Not luxurious but comfortable, clean, with helpful staff and within walking distance of the train station, old town and lake. Breakfast is reasonably priced as well.
I will definitely use the Ibis chain when staying in Swiss cities in the future.
This hotel is located near the main train station in Geneva (just around the corner). As the other reviewers have said, the benefit of the hotel is relative low cost for Geneva, the room is clean and basic, and the location is very good. I would add that the staff are very helpful and quite friendly. I did not have the breakfast. The downside is that this is a bare-bones hotel - it's straightforward accommodation. Don't have high expectations of the quality of the amenities and you probably won't be disappointed. I had a street facing room that was high up and I was not bothered by the noise, but others might be more sensitive. I suspect that in hot weather the room might have been problematic, since there was no fan or A/C that I could find.

Hotel Lido is located right in the centre of Geneva , close to the railway station, post office, public transport and …More
The room is okay, not dirty, but just old. Doors, chairs, and hallways squeek, shower curtains a bit stained, and definetely too small shawer space and bathroom.
Walls almost don't exist in the sense that yoy can hear everything next door, even their phone vibrating, to the conversation, or what they are watching on TV.
So if you plan to relax in the hotel, I wouldn't recommend, but if you're just looking for a place to crash and want a place in the city, its a convenient place. People are nice as well. But the fridge in yhe room was broken.
