What I loved about this hotel... the staff, the airiness, the comfortable bed, the real plant in the room, the freshness of the eggs at breakfast (not to be under-rated), the ironing board ... what I liked less ... a bit difficult to find the room (the lift opens on two sides and if you get out the wrong side it's sort of strange... the room was a little too hot for my liking (but am sure the staff would lower the temperature on request), the African scultures are a little unnerving (but that is personal taste) and (what I found very strange) there is no emergency call system in the bathroom. If you slip in the bath you will have to crawl into the bedroom to call for help, unless you take your cell phone into the bathroom :-). All in all a very positive experience (I didn't slip in the bath!)
- 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
