Getting to and from your Geneva hotel

Many hotels in Geneva are situated at walking distance from the main rail station (also called “Cornavin”). They’re close to the attractions in and around the town center as well. You may want to review the hotels near the airport too.

The hotels provide a free Geneva Transport Card, allowing you to use local public transport for free.

Get all information about traveling in Geneva here.

Where to stay in Geneva

Centrally located: between the rail station and northern lake shore

A hotel just south-east of Geneva’s main station is ideal. You can walk to both the station as well as to the boat docks Genève-Mt-Blanc and Genève Paquis. This is where most hotels in Geneva can be found.

Some of the main streets are:

  • Rue de Lausanne
  • Rue des Alpes
  • Rue de Chantepoulet / Rue du Mont-Blanc

Directly on the lake

There are several hotels on the boulevards north of the lake and the river Rhone. Look for these streets if you want a room with lake or river views:

  • Quai des Bergues
  • Quai du Mont-Blanc

Geneva’s main station is within walking distance of both streets.

In the old town

The old town of Geneva is located south of the lake and the river Rhône. If you spend the night here, you’ll be right between the charming old streets.

Getting to the rail station takes 15-20 minutes on foot, and 12-17 minutes by bus/tram.

Quieter alternatives to Geneva

If you prefer a hotel in a smaller town just outside of Geneva, you can consider booking one in nearby Divonne Les Bains (in France) or other Swiss towns on western Lake Geneva. Our choice would be Nyon: a beautiful medieval town on the lake. The train ride to Geneva takes just 15 minutes.

Page author: AnnikaSince early childhood I've been visiting Switzerland during my holidays and I just fell in love with the country. I spent many summers in the Bernese Oberland, which still feels like my second home, and then started to explore other areas. Traveling, hiking and photographing in the Swiss Alps are my absolute favorite activities.
