It is no coincidence that the Hotel des Horlogers is situated in the town of Plan-les-Ouates: this is where the major Swiss watch manufacturers are. Which is why the hotel came up with the fun idea of an immersive stay 'inside' a watch mechanism.
There are hundreds of period objects displayed cheek to jowl in the reception area, and the walls are covered with antique mechanism prints. The 32 rooms are humorously numbered from 10:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Decorated in red and white, the rooms are comfortable and sober. The breakfast buffet is generously stocked with fresh produce delivered daily, and the hot chocolate comes from a local artisan.
Located 15 minutes by public transport from downtown, this surprising little hotel is a perfect choice for those seeking excellent value for money in Geneva.
