The centrally located Hotel at Home offers accommodations that range from very basic rooms to well-equipped apartments. Though awarded three stars, the hotel has very few frills or perks, and its location next to a sex store is less than ideal. (It must be stated, however, that Paquis is a perfectly safe district where every law-abiding Genevois congregates to eat and drink.) With clean rooms, acceptable furnishings and a friendly staff, the Hotel At Home does the job adequately, but we would hardly feel at home here.

The narrow beds in the At Home’s 24 rooms evoke a freshman dorm room, and (oh my) is that really linoleum flooring in some rooms? Still, many rooms are flooded with natural light, and with cable TV, a writing desk and telephone, the guestrooms could be a good temporary crash pad. However, we think that tourists with even the minutest style requirement might find this too devoid of character for the rates.

The hotel’s nine studios and nine apartments, each outfitted with decent kitchens and all the usual appliances, are much better looking than the hotel rooms—but at such exorbitant rates (starting at CHF 2700 per month for a small studio), the long-term stay apartments here should be your last resort.

Our verdict: The At Home has the two key ingredients for potential success: central location and friendly staff. But it’s due for a design overhaul. For simple accommodations, this does the job; but a “home away from home” it is not.

Breakfast and Wi-Fi are available, both for an additional charge.
