This low three-star hotel is located on the CERN site, at walking distance of the cafeteria. Please specify on the registration form whether you would like one of these rooms to be firmly reserved for you (please do not contact the hostel directly).

If you prefer to stay in the center of Geneva, the Tourist Office of Geneva maintains a list of hotels ranging from one star to five stars. It usually takes 15-20 minutes to go from the old city of Geneva to CERN by taxi.
