La Cour des Augustins is a good, straight-forward hotel for short stays in Geneva. The room was clean and spacious. [I opted for a junior suite which was more $$$ .. I am not sure it was worth it.] The bed was a little lumpy but I was only there for 2 nights... so I survived.
I would have preferred staying in the Old Town but the tram can take you there in about 5-10 minutes ... so no big deal. That said ... Old Town (and Carouges) are the coolest parts of town .. and it really would be good to stay there.
I did not try the breakfast as it seemed over-priced at over 20 CHF, if I recall correctly. The front desk staff were extremely nice and helpful .... really made me feel at home. They helped me find specific stores and restaurants, organized taxis and were available at all times. They truly made the experience worthwhile.
I'd recommend this hotel.
- 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.
