Fodor's Review

The comic-book character Tintin made this hotel famous with L'Affaire Tournesol (The Calculus Affair) in 1956. Now the nine-story clock pendulum in the lobby, the deft manipulation of frosted glass and natural light on the top two floors, the spectacular glassed-in breakfast hall, and panoramic views compete for attention. Fourteen large triples and six interconnecting doubles easily accommodate families; double-glazed windows keep things quiet. This hotel is exceptionally well located: practically joined at the hip to the train station, it also has easy access to the international and main business areas, as well as the airport.

Great location, miserable staff

Spent a week here. Location next to train station is great for getting around Geneva and visiting Montreaux, Lausanne, Bern, Lyon , etc. Very quiet - no hint of the trains running. Room (a Junior Suite) was big, sleeps 3 comfortably and is very efficiently designed. Nice big bathroom. Beware though - staff cold, not at all helpful and chose to charge us for 2 extra bath towels when already paying 520 CH/night!
