The Ibis at Geneva Airport

UGH! More to come…

The trip to Geneva on the train was really relaxing, roomy and honestly the obvious choice when I think about it. However, what awaited us at the other end was in direct contrast. Let me just say that in addition to the Casino reviews, we are going to try to do restaurant and hotel reviews also which will mean doing a review of the pizza place from last night which was awesome. It was located in the basement of Motel33 by the airport. This will also mean doing a review of the worst hotel in the civilized world, the Ibis at Sydney airport. Naturally following this will be a review of the second worst hotel in the civilized world, the Ibis at Geneva Airport. I will include pictures because frankly at this point words fail me (not that this has ever stopped me).

It had the same plastic molded shower cubicle, with a toilet made for some form of contorted marsupial and a sink mirror combo that was lit in such a way that you could see zits that wouldn’t be here for another week yet. The room itself was less than 10 feet wide and the bed, sorry “bed” was a sheet of plywood upon which rested a 4″ matress, no boxspring, and 2 pillows that at first glance could easily be mistaken for teabags. The TV was a generous 13″ and come with a digital remote by which I mean you had to use your own digits to change the channels. For one person, it may have been borderline acceptable for lets say $40, but for 2 people at an alarming $142 it was Texas sized rip off. However, there was a highlight as I mentioned which was the Pizzeria we went to for dinner. I had a pizza with ham and mushrooms and Nicole had a cheese and onion pizza, both of which were massive and outstanding in quality. For about 15CHF each it was well worth the money. I also have to note that if you are going to travel like we do, staying at the airport the night before an early flight is the only way to do things.
