If you see your glass as half-full, you’ll love the Hotel Windsor’s urban location, with close proximity to restaurants, bars and attractions. If you’re more a half-empty kind of person, you may feel disturbed by those prostitutes who roam this street.
Whatever your take on the location, though, you’ll agree that three-star hotel offers perfectly fine accommodations. Despite its name, the Windsor is hardly palatial, but with generous common areas and bright colors, this central hotel is a good place to rest, hang out and even work out.
The Cohen family has been offering decent rooms at acceptable rates for more than 40 years. All 64 rooms are perfectly fine, especially the ones that have been updated recently. (Be sure to ask one of those those when booking.) The white, orange and chocolate color scheme brightens up tight quarters. Orange pillows really pop against the sophisticated gray walls and dark wooden floors, and the lumbar-pampering thick beds are a pleasure.
The private bathrooms, though adequate, tend toward miniscule.
But the Windsor stands apart from other mid-price places in Geneva thanks to its common areas. The bar, which serves beverages and paninis, looks like a hip bistro, and the dining room, where continental breakfast (included in the room rate) is served, sports smart tall stools. Plus, guests have free use of the spacious basement gym and sauna, which locals pay to use.
Wi-Fi is free throughout.
