Hi Teddy, welcome to MySwissAlps!
Did you check the suggested hotels on our Geneva page? www.myswissalps.com/ge neva/hotels
If you don't like any of those, please post your travel dates and budget so we can have a look for you.
I don't think there are areas of Geneva that should be avoided for safety reasons. But the red light district around the Rue de Berne might not be your ideal vacation spot. It's lively but not dangerous as far as I know.
There are not that many hotels in the (small) Old Town area. Les Armures is located there and listed on our page too. The whole city center is pretty compact, so you can go anywhere on foot regardless of where you stay. Here's a city walk you might want to do: www.myswissalps.com/hi king/geneva
