Stayed at the Cour for a couple of nights this past week-end The location was a primary choice-element as just 10 min walk from Plainpalais. The rooms are very tastefully decorated - what you'd expect from a boutique hotel - with a nice contemporary touch. The hotel is just off Rue de Carouge with its shops and the tram, and near a church - so bell-ringing inclusive. Beyond the location that was important for my choice, I was pleased to confirm the service quality I had read in other guests' reviews: the staff is more than helpful, they are attentive to the individual needs of the guests. Now, I would go back for the service, more than just the location. Breakfast buffet was rich in choice and quality (as one would expect in Switzerland) and my "weakness" assuaged with the Nespresso machine in the room. Next time i will test their gym and hammam facilities (tb cont'd).
- 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. In each room and suite, you will find various artworks by international artists. ... more less
