Where to stay in Geneva

In the elegant city of Geneva, a little shuteye doesn't come cheap. A number of relatively expensive hotels surround the lakefront, a prime location for visitors here; note that these tend to fill up for conferences and trade shows, so plan accordingly. More budget-minded travelers can look into options closer to the airport, which is a quick 15-minute ride on public transport into the city. While there a very few family-owned guesthouses and hotels, there are a handful of hostels--though these too are priced pretty steep. You can also find more affordable options in the outlying cities of Annemasse and Gaillard.

  • The sculpture of the broken chair is a grim reminder of the relaities the conflicts that rage in the world today specially those that take away limb and life throgh landmines and other UXOs.  more »
  • I love this spot. The tranquility and openness for dialogue is so important. It reminds me to be thankful and to remember those who don't have the freedom and peace.  more »
  • This is a huge chair installed in front of the UN complex, near an outdoor spot with a large amount of fountains. The chair appears with a damaged leg to leave an impact on the visitors.  more »

  • Huge structure ad broken leg depict the inner massage very nicely. Big square to accomodate huge crowd.
  • Nice to see photo opp but not much else to do in the area besides walk around the outskirts of the UN and a close by park.
  • This is not just another sightseeing attraction. It's a powerful message! Sad to see how many people posting here can only see it as a strange piece of wood put there for their selfies.
  • Thoughtfully conceptuluzed.. Strategically located!
  • The Broken Chair sculpture is located within the protest square facing the Palais des Nations (UN). It is very easy to get there from the Geneva train station, just get onto Tram 15 going towards the United Nations (Nations). It is the final stop from the train station in all 5 stops.
