Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skizz this is not a Geneva Airport Hotel
Hotel is 25 min away near CERN in the middle of a farmers field. Shuttle service is inadequate but you can take a taxi to hotel from Airport for 55 Euro.
Food service, variety, quality and service would be unacceptable in virtually all other countries, but especially poor for France.
The name of the hotel should be changed to ensure people are not led to believe they are staying near the Airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martin & Jan We wish we'd stayed longer
My wife and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at the hotel. Very comfortable, friendly helpful staff who spoke perfect English (our French is poor) and a great breakfast. The location is perfect for the Jura and fairly close to Geneva Airport (there's a free shuttle). Chamonix / Mont Blanc is only just over an hour's drive.
We hope to come again

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AM1976 Very Bad Stay
I have a very bad experience with this hotel when I received a very bad reception from the front disk reception. As a platinum ambassador member, I should receive a special reception. I arrived on Aug 9, 2014 at 11:30 pm and I received very bad reception from an old guy employee in reception when I asked him for welcome gift at the room and then he raised his voice (first time I received like this in my all travels) and told me that this is the policy and I don’t have anything for you. The hotel is very old and the facilities are not good.

Very close to my Geneva office premises.
Convenient and good value, the area across the border is quiet and easy to visit, find restaurant and bars/pubs.
I will come back again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tocmurray Quiet, clean, and comfortable
Upon arriving quite late, the desk attendant immediately came out, opened the security gate and made the check-in experience very easy for two quite tired guests. When entering the room, my wife and I were very impressed by the quiet and cold air conditioning as well as the overall room layout. Although staying there only for one night, I was very impressed with the overall quality of the facility. The next morning, due to a malfunctioning GPS system in my rental car, I needed to exchange cars at the airport car rental desk. The hotel shuttle driver kindly drove ahead to guide me from the hotel to the airport and was very courteous. I was able to get a replacement vehicle with a functional GPS connection and continued my trip to Paris. Both the staff and physical facilities of this hotel are top-notch. Keep up the good work.

Empfang durch Rezeption war sehr gut.
Dagegen war das Frühstücksbuffet eine RIESIGE KATASTROPHE, wie ich bereits im Detail hervorgehoben habe.
Sollte dieser Umstand bei unserem nächsten Besuch immer noch bestehen, werden wir Holiday Inn nicht mehr berücksichtigen.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor30 Comparatively cheap but may be inconvenient location.
I chose the hotel because I was staying only for 2 nights and it was cheap compared to those in Geneva city. The shuttle service (takes 20 minutes to reach the airport) is good enough but since I didn't have a mobile phone it was inconvenient to call the hotel every time I needed a pickup. Also they don't do pick-ups after 10.00pm so not convenient if you want to return after a late night in the city. Breakfast quality was ok, dinner at restaurant was much below expectations in terms of quality and quantity - but there are no other options nearby.

Yes, this phrase is curved on the old city Gates.
Stay in this hotel was all we need - comfortable, quite place with nice restaurant and patio, which is good to have in summer.
reasonable distance to the City center.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crazy8s Pleasant and comfortable room, but ...
My guest room was clean, comfortable, and pleasant.
I was, however, disappointed by the internet service. It was erratic and unreliable. Sometimes it worked adequately, but other times it would hardly work at all. At times, I repeatedly needed to login with username/password. My impression is that the router in the hotel (192.168.48.1) needs to be upgraded or reconfigured to better handle the bandwidth of many guests. Other guests reported the same situation. I rely on the internet for my work, so this was a major problem.
The shuttle van was important to me, but the once-per-hour schedule was a limitation. I would have liked more flexibility. However, most importantly, I could not use the shuttle on my departure day because my flight was too early. It would be very helpful if shuttle service started at 05:00 instead of 06:00.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SamTheWriter Geneva Airport Hotel?
It's kind of a stretch for this a "Geneva Airport Hotel." Although it is not far from the Geneva Airport, it is in France. There are at least 2 problems with this: (1) you have to cross the border, which can be slow; (2) You need Euros, whereas I came with Swiss Francs. Of course, you can just use your credit card, but there were times when having the local currency would have been convenient. Also, the place is out some way from Geneva. I was told the shuttle would take me to Geneva center, but the difficulties of arranging pickup dissuaded me from trying that. The village of Saint-Genis-Pouilly was mildly interesting, and there was a CERN site that was of some interest, but I would have preferred the sites of Geneva.
Next time I book a hotel online, I will check its location in Google Maps.

Das Hotel besuche ich seit Jahren bis zu 12mal pro Jahr und es gefällt mir im grossen und ganzen gut. Es wäre langsam an der Zeit dass hier aber Erneuerungen stattfinden da es langsam an Qualität der Infrastruktur abnimmt.
Zimmer sind gross und haben eigenen Klimaanlage

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reziprok Ausgezeichnetes Hotel, jedoch zu kurze Shuttle-Zeiten
Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem Hotel.
Negativ aufgefallen ist jedoch einerseits der Service beim Nachtessen sowie der Shuttlebus.
Der Kellner schien überfordert zu sein etwa drei Tische gleichzeitig zu bedienen. Zudem entfanden wir Ihn eher als unhöflich.
Auf den Shuttlebus mussten wir leider einige Zeit warten. Als er ankam waren wir vom kleinen Fahrzeug überrascht. Der Fahrer war zuvorkommend. Ich würde ihm jedoch raten nicht über das Autoradio zu telefonieren...
Weshalb das Shuttle nicht ganz unter das Vordach beim Eingang fuhr ist mir ein Rätsel, zudem hätten wir eine frühere Abfahrt bevorzugt. Bei unserem Rückflug wollten wir eigentlich kurzentschlossen nochmals im Hotel übernachten, leider fuhr der Shuttlebus nach 10 uhr nicht mehr. Schade...

What a lovely Holiday Inn in France - so close to the airport and so much more relaxing than staying in the center of Geneva or directly at the airport. The shuttle drivers were all very friendly and helpful and helped us find an incredible french restaurant Le Coq Rouge nearby. The entire experience was really something nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cwmfelinfach Easily accessible from Geneva airport
I have stayed here four times now and it is a decent choice if you need to be near Geneva airport or near to CERN. However, it is out in the middle of the country (on a busy main road but not in built-up area) so do not expect any restaurants, shops or facilities nearby. If you get a good room. you’ll have lovely mountain views.
In normal traffic, the shuttle to and from the airport takes about 15 minutes. It comes to pick you up on demand and goes back once an hour on the hour. It will also drop you off at a tram stop which goes into central Geneva. A taxi to the airport will cost about €45 and to Geneva up to €70.
The hotel normally costs less than the close-in airport options so, oddly, it is usually cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express (which is much closer).
The executive rooms are bright and spacious. The normal ones are smaller, darker and less appealing. Don't rely on getting upgraded if you have an IC platinum card (I was once). There is more hall noise than there needs to be but I am more sensitive to the issue than most people. A few simple steps would cut banging and mute conversation
Breakfast is fine but nothing beyond the usual buffet. All I care about is a functioning Espresso machine (€7 for two doubles). Room service is very limited and ends at 11 pm. The minibar is expensive but not extortionate. You would be better off going to the Migros supermarket at Geneva airport (it's open until 9 pm) or one of the take -aways at the airport (some are open until 11)
There is no gym at all which is a big omission in a location this far from any other fitness choices. Of course, there is almost limitless room for running or walking but you would need to be hardy in winter. By contrast, the Holiday Inn Express has an agreement which allows guests to pay for daily use of an excellent nearby health club.
The Internet service is provided by Swisscom. As always with Swisscom, this means a complex log in name and password and that the service drops out from time to time. Most of the time, though, it’s adequate although sometimes not always fast enough even for radio streaming. (That must delight the visiting CERN physicists) You’ll need a separate username for each device. As a platinum member, they happily gave me three.
The people at this Holiday Inn are great: friendly, capable and very helpful.
The hotel is spotlessly clean and well maintained

Not a good value/price compromise. The internet service often didn't work. It was difficult to take a shower without getting the floor wet. The breakfast was O.K. but not a good a good value. The staff were generally friendly and attentive.

Overall great experience staying here. The staff was very efficient, polite, and welcoming after our long drive to get here. The rooms were clean and big, a welcome relief from other rooms in France we stayed during our trip. I would recommend to take the airport shuttle if at all possible as the cab ride to the airport (which was quickly arranged by the staff) is fairly expensive at 60 euro.

We stayed here for a night on a layover back to the States. The food was fantastic. The rooms were much larger than expected. Well worth the money. Also, they provide a free airport shuttle and the folks at the airport will call them for you. We used that and they were very prompt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by primitivepios Very Poor
Just came back after staying for 3 nights at the hotel.
Location is nice if you have a car, and the views are great. But the rooms are very dated, and you feel that - bathroom doesn't have a clean feeling to it at all (toilet has stains and a yellowish color to it, which you can only relate to years of use withour any renovations), carpets could be much cleaner and the sheets are very stiff (laundered too many times and should be replaced).
Breakfast is a disaster - very expensive, very limited choices, and the worst of all - many of the dishes were empty mose of the time since the staff failed to refill. That caused situations where we had to wait very ling for some bacon (and in one morning, we ended up leaving without eating bacon at all since it was never replenished...). On top of it all, when food finally appears, the amount brought from the kitchen is so small that it disappears quickly.
Service was very good, but the hotel needs renovation work ASAP (and to change the very old towels and sheets), and to change their entire way of handling breakfast.

I stayed in this hotel for a night and business purposes. All facilities were in good condition and according to the specifications during booking. The best of this hotel were the friendliness of the staff. Note that the hotel is about 20 mins from Geneva by car. I did not use it, however the hotel offers a suttle bus to the airport

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Up In The AIr Professor Reasonable Near-by hotel
This hotel is in France, a mile or so from the nearest Swiss border crossing at the main entrance to CERN. The hotel itself is a collection of building additions, such that the rooms vary in size and accessibility depending upon which wing you are in. Generally the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is open for meals every day, which in the local area can be problematic for Sunday evening meals outside the hotel. There is a shuttle service that runs hourly to the airport, or to CERN, (both of which are too far away to get to any other way). However, you can take a bus or tram from either the airport or CERN to access almost anything in Geneva. Because of the need to use the shuttle to go anywhere if you do not have a car, this is not a good choice for tourists visiting Geneva. My only negative comment is that the shuttle service does not begin until 7:00 AM and it can take 30 minutes to get to the airport in traffic, so you cannot depend on the shuttle service if your flight leaves before ~8:30 AM, and there are a lot of flights that do. The only alternative is to have a taxi take you and the taxi fare can be comparable to the least expensive single night's room rate at the hotel!
