Our family of 5 (three children 10 to 17) stayed at Residhome Le Carre D'Or in Prevessin three years ago, before boarding our flight back to the States. Suite was new, and we were pleasantly impressed with the type of lodging.
We stayed again this summer, on August 1st, and were assigned a different suite in a different building (B). Unfortunately both building and suite weren't what we remembered and expected, as suite was run-down and overall cleanliness was poor. The suite assigned was on the second floor, which can be reached only by stairs (no elevator). I usually don't mind climbing stairs, unless I'm carrying heavy luggage - which is likely at a lodging located close to an international airport.
This was a 2-level suite, with kitchenette, dining table, sofa bed and bathroom on the 1st floor, and 2 bedrooms + bathroom on the 2nd floor. The minute we walked into the suite we were 'hit' by the smell of sewer, heavier on the 1st floor to the point that we avoided using the 1st floor bathroom and then squeezed the 5 of us for the night into the two bedrooms on the 2nd floor. I immediately noticed the run-down status of the suite, the smell, the dirty walls and doors, and therefore I went back to the reception office to ask for a better arrangement. Unfortunately the gentleman at reception wasn't willing to accommodate my requests at all, and we had to stay at the assigned suite.
I recommended this Residence 3 years ago, but I will NOT recommended it now. Lack of cleanliness and poor reception always drive me off, and we will not go back to this lodging.
If you don't mind either, I guess this Residhome can be a budget-friendly choice when in the area. Otherwise, I suggest you look somewhere else.
