              All the staffs were so friendly and helpful which was great.

              It was rather quite noisy. One could hear everything what is happening outside the room/in the corridor. And the quality was breakfast was really disappointing. They provided old croissants. Breakfast service too poor to believe that I am staying in a swiss three-star. Nevertheless I would say that the hotel is fine for short-stay, business travellers.

              You can get what you pay for - clean and tidy room + WiFi connection

              Their breakfast was poor and the area was a little noisy at night.

              Room was nice. Breakfast was much better than I was expecting....lots of variety for a continental! Excellent central location close to train station (I was walking) and to the lakeside walk. Only had half a day in city.

              8.2

              The staff were helpful and polite. The location is excellent, right near Cornavin railway station, which means that you can take a (cheap) train from the airport and arrive within a city block from the hotel ten minutes later, stroll across the bridge and enjoy a beer near the lake, and take a tram or bus to wherever you need to go in the city using your free public transport courtesy of the hotel. When in your room or at breakfast, you can use the free WiFi.

              The only two minuses I found were that the single bed was a bit small for my 1m92 (6'4") - but this is a problem I encounter wherever I go - that the general look of the hotel was a bit too 1970s for my taste and that some of the upholstery in the breakfast room needs to be replaced. But overall, for a quick business trip that doesn't break the bank, I would highly recommend the Excelsior.

            • Single
              9.2

              Very centrally located in Geneva's city centre, also with good transport connections; busses, trams and main train station are all just a couple of minutes away. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable.

              Some people may be put off by the noise that travels up at night time from the bars and restaurants in the street.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The Excelsior was a clean comfortable hotel and centrally located. Train station only a short walk away, shopping all around and the Lake at the bottom of the street.

            • Single
              5.4

              Sheets and bed were very clean. Free pass for public transportation rather than booking a taxi.

              Very noisy: 1. I woke up because I thought that someone was taking a shower in my bathroom while it was in my neighboor's room. 2. I switched off the fridge in the room because of the noise. 3. I kept the window closed because of the noise from teh streets and did not sleep well beacuse too warm and not enough fresh air. Breakfast quality is poor. In general terms, very expensive for what it is (especially that I had an upgrade of my room).

              9.4

              It was convenient to the buses and train and shopping. The staff was helpful and the breakfasts good. And the price was very good for Geneva.

              I was very impressed with Hotel Excelsior. I've stayed in several hotels in the center of Geneva for access to the airport the next morning and this was the best one. Convenient location close to Cornavin station. Nice breakfast. Very clean and comfortable.

              8.8

              Clean, great location 3 minutes walk from the train and bus. Friendly and helpful staff.

              Single beds, not enough hanging space for clothes.

              7.0

              Very good location, close to train station and Geneva lake. Very clean hotel too.

              Was not aware that the hotel room was without aircon or heater so it ended up a little stuffy at night.
