Cornavin

Gare de Cornavin, Geneva, 1201, Switzerland

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.
