    The hotel is in an excellent location, an easy walk to Gare Cornivain, Gare Routiere and the Lake. Room (refurbished) was well appointed. Breakfast is generous and convenient, and the wifi works very well. This was my second stay at the Capitole, and I would certainly stay there again. Just to say, in both visits I haven't encountered any unsavoury activity near the hotel, and I have walked safely in the surrounding area at night without any concerns.

    The location of the hotel is very good. It took me less than an hour to get to the hotel since landing at the airport. Also all places which I needid to reach in Geneva are within the walking distance.

    I heard almost everything from a neighbouring bathroom. As I stayed upstairs, noises from the lift engine room could be heard quite often. However this was not anything which could discourage me from booking this hotel again :-).

  • Single

    The location is great quite and central place (few steps from Cornavin and in front of the police station). The breakfast was reach and the facilities in the room ware satisfied like hair dryer, towels, TV.

    The room wasn't ventilated enough

    free use of the internet was extremely useful as we were there during the volcanic-ash situation and had to find an alternative way home. Also needed an extra night at the hotel and they were very helpful. Very convenient for the station.

    second night was spent in different room to the first and it was slightly noisy from the cocktail bar below.

  • Single
    7.0

    good location, acceptable price, free internet, reasonably quiet, comfortable bed, clean

    breakfast room with TV screens and aggressive atmosphere; not enough food choice for guests having breakfast after 9 am, meaning one gets leftovers if does not go early enough to catch "better" food

  • Older travelers

    Breakfast was ok

    - Staff at reception was completely incapable; - very dirty, no hygiene; - half of the lights in the rooms didn't work, everything very old and used;

  • Older travelers

    None. Absolutely nothing I liked in this hotel.

    Our " superior" room was small, smelly, dark with black walls. An old fireplace was not covered, a junky smelly sofa . Both should just be removed , no need for it in such a small room. Carpeting was worn out and smelly. Bathroom was new but inside hanle of door was broken. I would hate to see the " standard" room. Breakfast was below average..Definitely remove this hotel from your listing.

    I liked the location, proximity and the free wifi. The room was quite hot all the time. I did enjoy the location and price.

    Good range of things at breakfast

    Rooms were much too hot, and no way to cool them down. If I opened the window the noise and smoke from the bars in the street below drifted up and made sleep impossible. If I closed the window, the room heated up so much that I had to sleep without covers every night (and this was only in June). The hotel provided a fan on the last night, which helped a bit.

    The location was perfect to visit the city, and many restaurants within minutes of the hotel.

    No hot water from the shower, in fact no water from the hot tap at all. No plug in the sink, so washing myself was a challenge. Staff not interested as I was checking out a couple of hours later.

    Perfect location, good breakfast, very helpful personel.

  • Group of friends

    only the location, as in central to Geneve - the street is full of prostitutes and not nice looking people!! beware!

    breakfast was a joke - nothing to eat for 5 mornings, cold coffeee, when you asked for a warm coffe they want to charge you.theres is no a/c and it gets too hot in the room.The neighbourhood is frightening....

  • Couple
    7.8

    Good location, very close to the lake and to the Gare. A number of nice restaurants around the hotel aria.

    Some problems with electricity in our room. A little bit noisy district. In our opinion a very expensive hotel for it`s level...
