Geneva Old Town
Geneva Old Town at night
Surprisingly, Geneva's Old Town is quiet and with few shops, bars and restaurants, for a city of its size, in comparison with other Swiss cities like Lausanne, Bern, Basel or Zurich.

Good Place to Hang out . . .
There is a hostel in the Old Town of Geneva called Hommes St. Pierre. It is an all female hostell and if youwant to stay there you have to book it months in advance. There is a small sleeping area which is co-ed and separate from the main building which has beds available upon occassion. Hommes St Pierre has a roof top terrace with dining tables. The view overlooks Lake Geneva and the Jet D'eau. The hostel is a great place to stay if you have an extended stay in Geneva such as 2-6 months or so. Some of the rooms have dining areas and fireplaces.
