There’s no funny business going on at the Hotel Comedie, a 28-room property situated on a busy tramline in the university quarter. This three-star family business is a competently managed hotel that provides efficient service and clean rooms at standard Geneva rates.
Reception is located on the ground-floor of an apartment building, and guestrooms take up the building’s top three floors. Rooms are spacious by Geneva budget-hotel standards and are simply furnished with reasonably thick beds, plus a writing desk and coffee table crowned with fresh flowers. Imitation Gaugins decorate otherwise sparse walls, whose warm peach hues offset the impersonal, thick carpets. (Some rooms, however, have updated wood-laminate flooring.)
All rooms are equipped with a telephone, minibar, cable TV and free Wi-Fi, but keep in mind that there is no air conditioning, and that all that sunshine can really heat up the top floor quickly. The front rooms, which get a lot of light in the morning, afford a view of the Salève mountain, but get some noise from the street below, despite soundproof windows. Rooms facing the back are quieter and receive a lot of afternoon sun, but have dismal views of neighboring apartments.
Private bathrooms are spotless, tiled and equipped with bathtubs.
Just steps from public transit, the Comedie is strategically located between the city center and the charming suburb of Carouge. In addition to the university, budget eateries and supermarkets abound in the vicinity.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Hotel Comédie neighborhood
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.
