Hotel ibis Styles Geneva Station (Geneve Gare)

We stayed two nights in the fabulous city of Geneva, our hotel of choice, ibis Styles Geneve Gare, located just outside of the Geneva train station. This is where the former Hotel Savoy is located, Accor group took over and gave it a complete facelift. The spanking new hotel just opened its doors in Mar 2014.

Check in was smooth, we got our room #608 at the top floor (6th floor). Their new elevator is activated by card access so only hotel guests can have access to the guest room levels.

Our room is very new and clean, with a chic and modern design. In room wifi is good and stable. I love the touches of fuchsia pink color that matches with my laptop and mouse!

Being at the top floor also means that we have an obstructed view of the Jet d'Eau (Geneva's Landmark), we could see the tip of the massive 140m tall jet fountain.

Can see the tip of Jet d'Eau if you know where to look

The toilet was very clean and spacious, with new designer looking shower system by Hansgrohe. One thing I don't really like is they use disposable plastic cups at the wash basin, it always topples when I put my toothbrush in it...kinda irritating.

The pretty semi spiral staircase outside our room..

Breakfast (6-10am) is served at the breakfast area at Ground floor where the front desk is located. This brightly lit area was just opened about a month ago. During the previous months when it was not yet ready, hotel guests had to go to the next door Pub to have their breakfast.

Breakfast spread was good, we were very glad to see sausages and scrambled eggs being offered here after 10 days straight of only ham and cheese in Switzerland. They served very good quality ham too. Check it out!

Bread and cereals 


The coffee machine is always out of milk, so cappuccino and mocha etc. are always unavailable...bummer.

The scrambled eggs are buttery though..

They have chocolate cereal...
