I stayed at La Cour des Augustins in October 2012. The room was very nice, large, and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom was generously sized, and the room had a large dressing area. The hotel staff was friendly.
The hotel is in a residential and light commercial area around a mile from the heart of Geneva. Because Geneva public transportation is excellent, and because the hotel is located a block from the 12 tram (Pont D'Arve) and two blocks from the 15 tram (Uni-Mail), it is convenient to the center of the city and to the international organizations on the Rive Droit. The central train station is a 10 minute tram ride.
There are a large number and wide variety of restaurants near the hotel, including steak, sushi, and burgers, mostly along the Rue du Carouge.
My main reservation about the hotel is the internet service, which was free, but was also quite slow. The fitness center is also small, overheated, and has antiquated equipment.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tucked away in Geneva's Latin Quarter, La Cour des Augustins is an innovatively designed hotel with a distinctly urban style. It modernises the boutique hotel concept, combining architectural heritage with contemporary interior design. Far from the city's busy main roads and right in the heart of Genevan life, you can easily stroll through the Old City, the art and business districts, and the charming Sardinian village of Carouge. The concept was designed in collaboration with the Swiss designer Philippe Cramer, based on the idea of personalised and diverse spaces. The hotel harmoniously and subtly blends modern and classic design. Composed of 16 rooms and 24 suites that masterfully combine design, comfort and technology, the hotel is comprised of two buildings from the 1850s. Both building were entirely renovated in 2006 and are connected by an interior courtyard. Each room and suite has a unique and specific style, with contemporary designer furniture and objects. Whether you are planning to stay for a night, a week, a month or longer, La Cour des Augustins will fulfil all of your expectations. La Cour des Augustins also serves as an art gallery, hosting a permanent private collection of African art. Between vibrantly coloured designer objects, African statues, masks and figurines bring unexpected depth to the hotel decor.
