Cheap Accommodations

by elise_crash

Hello!

My husband and I will be in Geneva Septemeber 7 - September 11. We are trying to find a nice place to stay for under USD $120. We will take a hotel, apartment, or hostel, as long as it is reasonably priced and is not a complete dump. If we stay in a hostel, we need to have a private room, as opposed to a dorm style room.

We would like to stay as close to the city center as possible. But, as long as we are close to public transportation (a must), then we should be okay.

Any suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you can tell us some of the better areas (zip codes) to stay in, that would be very helpful.

Thanks, and Happy Travels!

Lisa

Swiss33, I tried the hostel, but it won't let us book for the nights we will be there (Sept. 7-10). I guess they are full. :(

Travel Tips for Geneva

Geneva is a nice, quiet,...

by mari2marc

Geneva is a nice, quiet, little town. Actually, you may find it too quiet: boring, especially at night. And your travel guide may not be very helpful. The downtown is definitely not an interesting spot at night.
Go to the Old Town, or better, around Place du Cirque and Rue du Stantd, or to Carouge if you are interested in some nightlife. The 'red light district' (les Pâquis) is very safe and has a lot of restaurants too. Don't be afraid to go there.
During the day, travel guides are usually more helpful. My special recomendation is to visit 2 very beautiful parks: the Jardin Botanique on the right side of the lake and the Parc des Eaux-Vives on the left side.

If you like symphonic music...

by bratsch

If you like symphonic music try to catch a concert by l’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, founded in 1918 by Ernest Ansermet. The orchestra’s home is the Victoria Hall, built on the occasion of the Queen’s visit to Geneva. The hall burned down in the early 1980’s and was reconstructed identically to it’s past except for the painted ceilings.

village party in center town

by zoup

Going up the old town in rue de la fontaine, you'll find a staircase going through the big wall on the right. it leads you on the lawn next to the cathedral. on the first (or second) week-end of september is held what looks like a village party, or rather here a 'neighborhood' party, so chance to talk with locals around food and drinks. don't expect anything too fancy, but i found it by chance, and the change between before the stairs, with young people going to the bars, and up the stairs with families sitting on benches at tables in the grass talking around wine and 'coq au vin' was quite radical...

Once we left the flower clock...

by rtschneider

Once we left the flower clock we headed in the direction away from the lake. We walked through a main tourist area and then we walked up (literally up hill) away from the main tourist areas. We got some pretty cool views of the city. Apparently not too many tourist head up that way because we had trouble finding resturants that we open at 2pm unlike in the tourist areas.

Happening nightclub

by vanessadb about MAD (Moulin à Danses)

MaD stands for Moulin à Danse (Dance Mill) and is pretty much an institution in Geneva. You can dance, listen to live music when they have concerts, or just have a drink at the bar and people watch.

The legal age to go clubbing in Switzerland is 18.

On the weekends, only members and their guests are allowed to go in, so you will have to meet the locals and ask them to go in with them! Casual or not no casual.
