Located half way between the city centre and Cointrin Airport Residence Du Grand-Saconnex is situated in a residential area of Geneva very close to foreign missions and many offices. The building itself is traditional and blends in with the surrounding architecture. The lobby is small. The Residence doesn't have a check in desk guests must call in the bar where they can check-in. This is old Europe's style of service. The residence offers great value for money and it's very popular due to its location spaciousness of it's rooms and studios. Included for all guests in the price of all hotels is a free transportation card which is valid for the entire length of stay for all guests booked in the hotel. The card is valid on trains buses trams and the local lake water taxi 'Les Mouettes'. Very specious rooms. The residence has standard rooms and studios. All studios are equipped with a small kitchen fridge and separate bathroom. Although there's a bar/restaurant linked to the Residence however this is not part of the hotel. Guests can use the restaurant if they wish to have breakfast and meals if they wish.
Close to airport...not as close as advertised, free bus pass
On busy road, very noisy, not cleaned daily
There was a bus stop just outside the door.
Small bathroom felt like an outhouse unit that had been added on. Rusty doorframe. No air conditioning. Broken window pane. Door difficult to lock. Bushes overgrown in the front.
