Cheap hotels in Plainpalais, Geneva

The sprawling Université de Genève has certainly left its erudite mark on Plainpalais. Geneva's center of scholarly and artistic pursuits is named for the Plaine de Plainpalais, the diamond-shaped expanse at its center that stages everything from open-air markets to traveling circuses.

Just beyond the park, things are decidedly more highbrow. The university resides on the western end, and to the east, on the border between Plainpalais and Old Town are the Conservatoire de musique de Genève and the opulent opera house, Grand Théâtre de Genéve. And scattered throughout are plenty of cafés perfectly suited for long philosophical discussions.
