Cheap hotels in Saint-Gervais, Geneva
In case "rue du Mont Blanc" at the northern end of St. Gervais doesn't give it away, this glitzy neighborhood was once a watchmaking hub. Tucked just south of the train station and the slightly grittier Paquis district, St. Gervais is a bustling and sophisticated hub of high-end boutiques, restaurants and chocolate shops. Also here are the elaborate Gothic Basilica of Notre Dame and the avante-garde St.-Gervais Theater.
Address Place Cornavin, 14-16 (Saint-Gervais)
The conveniently located Hotel les Arcades occupies a few floors in a residential building. The octogenarian we met on the elevator had lived in the building since the ‘60s and told us that the two-star hotel was “très correct.”
