Good 6.0
For the same price I would stay some where else .
Hotel well located , it was refurbished. They should put carpet et not the hard flooring. 6.30 in the morning you could hear the made or the guest pulling a trolley or luggages . Breakfast ok . Manager giving excuses to all my questions . No apologies! sais twin bed and it was a single bed ....The room was very hot , very hot . They advertise environmentality , so I said ok I will keep the same towels . I ask if there is a rebate or they would credit with giving some money to an association , the manager didn’t know what I was talking about . Old hotel that was rehabbed . Lacking good training on guest satisfaction They should paybattantion ..... My room is not worth more than 100 a night .

Nice hotel, close to the train station and not far from the lake. The hotel offers breakfast which I gladly took advantage of because everything nearby is high. Front desk very helpful and the hotel offers hotel guests with public transport passes. Wifi was spotty at first but once on, it worked fine. Would recommend and stay again.

Excellent value
I was so pleasantly surprised by Hotel Excelsior! I mainly decided to stay there because of its location (mine was a short stay): it was very close to the train station and easy to find. However, it turned out to be much more than just a solution to a problem. The room was immaculate. What a treat to find such a clean room to relax in after a hard day. If you are noise sensitive, I recommend staying on the courtyard side (costs a touch more) because there is traffic noise on the side with "city view". Within the hotel itself it was very quiet. Breakfast was more than adequate and nicely presented. Super easy walk to other parts of Geneva and to public transportation (for which the hotel gave a free pass). An excellent value. Only quirk was that there were not many electrical outlets (one near bed and one in bathroom). Still, I would happily stay there again if I need to be in Geneva.
