The hotel is in an excellent location, with bus and tram transport at your doorstop, including a bus direct to the train station or the airport. There is a supermarket around the corner, which enables you to do a quick shop to stock up for food preparation in the small, but adequate kitchenette in the apartment.
Breakfast was also included in the tariff which is always a plus and the staff were friendly and helpful, and spoke English, also a plus for those of us whose French language skills are not very good.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful park, and easy to find, however the description of the "garden view" for room 107 had was tenuous.
what view we had was the tops of trees, a tennis court and the parking lot at the back of the hotel.
This was the only weak point of an otherwise enjoyable stay.
The hotel I believe should be more descriptive regarding its "views"
Really enjoyed staying here, both because its so central and near Rive station (getting me anywhere I need to go on the free metro card that comes with the room) but also because the staff are truly friendly and kind and take great care of their guests! I was here on business and enjoyed the downtown and having a drink with the locals in the restaurant/café/bar better than the feel of a big expensive hotel; I will make a point to stay here again.
Hotel Calvy is situated in the city center of Geneva but benefits from the calmness and the charmness of a village. You will …More
Yes, it's possible to stay at a clean, comfortable, friendly hotel in Gevena for a reasonable cost. While the amenities at Hotel Pax can't compare with those at the standard luxury hotels in this very wealthy city, the hotel is a perfectly fine place to stay, especially if you are on a budget. Staff is great, very friendly and helpful, location is outstanding, near everything. So the rooms are a bit Spartan perhaps, minimalist, threadbare even. But there is nothing to complain about, given the price disparity when the costs of services in Geneva are considered. Staying here freed up our budget to experience more of what lovely and peaceful Geneva has to offer. Wifi worked well, too.
East of the old town, Les Eaux-Vives is home to Jet d’Eau, the world’s tallest fountain, shooting water 140 metres high into the air. Shoreline promenades lead past the Jardin Anglais, where the Horloge Fleurie (Floral Clock) counts the hours with Swiss precision, and La Neptune, a traditional barge, can be hired for lake cruises. Parc La Grange is famed for its roses.
