Welcome !

The Bel’Espérance hotel offers you a comfortable and serene atmosphere in a setting of genuine simplicity. Situated at the gates of the old town, with easy access to public transport and close to the lake, our establishment benefits from an ideal location. You will also find numerous boutiques, theatres, museums and art galleries in the vicinity. The Bel’Espérance hotel promises you a pleasant stay right in the heart of Geneva.


Originally a hostel for ladies of the Salvation Army, the building was completely renovated in 1996 to become the Bel’Espérance hotel. Having always been owned by the Salvation Army, it is a living space which takes its inspiration from humane and Christian values. As a result, comfort and authenticity are more important to us than high standing and flashiness. We offer excellent quality for the price, and welcome travellers as our friends. We see our hotel as a big house imbued with conviviality.
