About the neighborhood
Cologny is the most upmaket part of Geneva. All the famous hide on this hill that dominate the town and the lake, basically the best spot. In the morning, you just need to walk around the house to get the warm croissant from the village baker, on your way, you can have a quick expresso at the bar 'le coin des cerises'. For lunch you can go to 'la Closerie' italian gastronomie and in the evening at 'Le Lion d'Or', relais & chateau, one of the three best table in Geneva. All that 100m appart! The museum Bodmer world knowed for its most amazing collection of books from antique times. The reknown Golf of Cologny and the société nautique who won the America's Cup sailing trophy.( I was part of the team). You're at the door of nature for hiking.
Getting around
You are 2.5 km from the fountain, so basically 20-30' walks from the heart of the city, the old town, the shopping streets. Idealy, you can rent an electric bicycle that will allow you to reach any part of interest in less than 15'. More fun less worry. If you have a car, you can park for free at the door step. There is also the A bus that leaves at your front door every 20-30'. The stop is called Cologny temple. You get off at the terminus, 'Rive' witch is the center. Nerver the less, the best is to walk down the hill 5' and you catch the yellow regular boat line that takes you to the center or across.
