great location - able to walk to many attractions and restaurants plus close to public transportation. Hotel staff pleasant and extremely helpful. Hotel provided 1 day transit pass - able to visit other areas of city and catch public transit to airport. Room (2 twin beds) basic but worked out well. I would recommend this hotel to others.
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"
The Diplomate is conveniently located and cheap by Geneva standards, so there are compromises. The rooms are small and the bathroom facilities are dated, but it's OK if you just need somewhere to sleep. The hotel breakfast is not worth eating so you'll need to go to one of many coffee shops downtown to have breakfast. The lady receptionist is very good, speaks perfect English and can advise on how to use the public transport system which is not only outstanding but is free to all hotel guests in Geneva, in return for a daily hotel tax per person.

Disappointed no tea/coffee making facilities in my room. Hotel foyer in the process of major work, vast holes in ceiling and cables hanging down. Staff very overworked (175 guests for self service breakfast with only 2 staff to clear away, clean tables and replenish supplies) and receptionist on desk answering phone and dealing with guests meant that guests were stood waiting for conversations to take place while they waited and waited. TV appeared to have only two channels: one was the God slot and the other advertised sausages endlessly! Radio not working at all.

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.
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
