I don't have any recent local knowledge, but...

From the EuroPython site's travel section:

http://public.web.cern.ch/public/Content/Chapters/VisitCERN/GetToCERN/GetToCERN-en.html

The main entrance to CERN (Meyrin site) is located right by the French border 
on the north-west side of Geneva. The nearby districts aren't particularly 
exciting, but I imagine that there are decent/mainstream/expensive hotels 
near the airport, and there are several hotels in the centre of town. CERN's 
own accommodation isn't bad, though, for those undecided about whether a 
hotel is required.

CERN's a big place, so I don't think it has (or needs) a street address. 
Here's the contact page, reachable from CERN's home page:

POI?

I imagine so, and Benedikt's previous information gives that impression, too. 
Certainly, I don't think the other major site (Prevessin) has much in the way 
of conference facilities.
