My husband and I went to Genève for the wedding of our daughter. We stayed 5 nights at La Cours des Augustins, in a large loft room. We arrived very early, and while the rooms were not ready ( and we were not expecting these to be available) the staff was extremely nice and made us feel comfortable in the lounge area.
The room was well appointed, with a kitchenette and dining area. Coffee and tea were available, Nespresso coffee and old tea bags for tea. Definitively not a tea drinking hotel! Water and chocolate added a very nice welcoming touch.
On day one, we had shower in the afternoon, then came back late at night to find the room completely redone and clean. Marvellous! Then we lost one large towel per night , going from 4 on day one to two on day three, and it stayed at this level for the rest of our stay. We got one more turnover at night, with a small cookie and a refreshing of the room.
We enjoyed our stay, and would go back to the Cours des Augustins. The area of town is nice, it is very easy to go everywhere, by tram or walking. The hotel is very nice, and could be brought to the next level with small things such as larger towels (and at least three per room) fresher tea in the rooms, some milk and sugar for the coffee.
The front desk staff was excellent, the breakfast was fine, the waiting staff excellent, and so considerate.
- 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.
