“Attractive, modern studio in the center of Old Town”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We stayed one night at the Cocoon. The place was beautiful, and the location was excellent. Instructions from the owner were helpful, since the place is easy to miss. The building is very old, and the corridors quite dark and a bit shabby. But it's part of the charm, and didn't matter since the room was clean and cosy. Place is on the 1st floor with windows to the street. I would definitely recommend the place for everyone who's looking for something romantic and/or out of the ordinary.

We stayed in the Cocoon room.

This room is in a great location. Has a great Nespresso maker, flatscreen television and is trendy and clean. It's a little rough around the edges in places (chipped tiles etc) but for the price is very reasonable. It was a little difficult to locate initially as I thought the front door was a door to a storage room but as it's name says it's definitely unique!
We're looking forward to trying Le Lodge next time.

Le Dolce is a darling studio apartment with a wonderful balcony overlooking the canal in the heart of Annecy. The apartment had everything we needed and it was great to be in the center of this beautiful town. Great restaurants are all around and there is good shopping nearby too. One night we bought takeout from a nearby traiteur and had a lovely picnic on the balcony. We loved watching the market set up on Sunday morning. Parking is conveniently nearby.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the entrance hallway could be described as sketchy; it's an ancient building. But we had great communication with Emilie before we arrived, and she gave us the combination to the lockbox so we could let ourselves into the apartment. The rates are similar the hotels we stayed at in other towns, but here we had kitchen facilities and more room. I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Annecy.

Room Tip: Le Lodge and Le Dolce are adjacent apartments and would be great for friends or families traveling t...

This place is sketchy. Nobody around except a cleaning lady. Even getting into the door from the outside is tough.

Once inside, you walk down a dark, damp hallway littered with bicycles up a set of stairs. There is a box which contains the keys to the room which the owner never informed us how to open. This caused us to waste 2 hours before "checking in".

The room is nice, very large. Some neat decoration. Can't beat the location... but too sketchy for our tastes. Very pricy for what you get.

We will not be back.

Room Tip: Good luck!

My husband and I stayed one night in Le Cocon. It was beautiful, spacious, clean and very unique. It is decorated beautifully. We enjoyed the espresso maker. The location in Annecy is PERFECT. The location couldn't be better.

We stayed in Le Cocon and La Dolce in February and both were wonderful. Le Cocon is a fusion of textures - white paint, rough white stone, shaggy cushions - a very calm space to be in - fabulous. Then we went to La Dolce, overlooking the little river in the very heart of the old town - a concoction of retro greens, oranges and brown with a fab freestanding bath and a terrace which in the summer could not be bettered. Very comfortable beds and lovely bedlinen too. Annecy has the perfect lake and mountain backdrop, beautiful ancient buildings, huge choice of places to eat and only 35 mins from Geneva airport. Owner Emilie is a mine of information. Hope to go back in September to see it at the other end of the year.

What a great way to spend a few days in the town of Annecy... The chic unique apartments perfectly characterize modern French living in an olden romantic town. Top notch job done by the owner and the prices are very suitable for what you get. Great value, great location and a fantastic experience.
