Can walk to hotel from main station, helpful staff, good rooms. Walking distance to old town and the lake. Bus station connecting to a number of little towns is right outside the hotel. You won't regret staying here.

The hotel staff were excellent; we were picked up at Geneva airport, on time, by the shuttle bus; the room was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and very quiet, overlooking a stream. The small village is a short walk from the hotel, with several restaurants. The shuttle driver was very friendly, and drove us to GVA in the morning. Everything was perfect.
"Nice apartments just the other side of the border"
We chose this hotel on a trip to Geneva. Staying in Swtizerland is expensive, but if you can stay just across the border like we did, its great. We had a crib in the room free of charge, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The only thing I didn't like about the room is that we booked two rooms, and on their system they saw this as 2 reservations under my name, so they ended up canceling on reservation. No big deal, they rebooked us and gave us another room. But this happened twice -- we stayed at the hotel twice. Overall though, if you're trying to save money but still want a comfortable room, I would recommend this hotel. Think of it as a budget hotel just across the border -- and since its all the EU, moving back and forth between France and Switzerland is a piece of cake.
This hotel is the perfect base to explore Geneva and surrounding areas. It has everything for a comfortable stay and facilities to cook if required. The only thing I have to say is we had use of a car which made things easier. I think it would be pretty awkward otherwise.
The spa facilities are excellent with a wide variety of options, although under 16s are not allowed in the spa. The restaurant was also very good and offered great views.
Our rooms were in the residence and all had views over the lake, and were perfectly located for a walk into town or down to the lake. We were in Divonne for a wedding and found it very relaxing place to stay.
The residence also provides good cooking facilities including a toaster, hobs and microwave and all the cookware you could need. However only two mugs are provided so if you have guests in the hotel make sure they bring them too! There are plenty of glasses and cutlery though so its not really an issue, especially as the rooms were excellent and secure.
Finally we found the staff very helpful, organising taxis and letting us book in slightly earlier than normal, etc... they really do try and help when they can. I just wish we had had more time to explore both Divonne and the facilities.
