My wife and I stayed at Aux Augustins for four nights in September 2013. Our unit was a ground floor efficiency opening onto the pleasant interior courtyard. Unit was large, tastefully furnished and the kitchen was well equipped, although we only ate breakfast there. There is AC if you are there in the warm months. The location was convenient, a short walk from the major sites and within walking distance of many restaurants. Because we were making day trips out into the countryside, we arrived with a car. Aux Augustins is especially convenient for this as the shuttle bus that serves the free parking located outside the walls (the one near the University) stops right in front of the hotel. The shuttle is free and frequent and saves the hassle of negotiating the narrow streets of the walled city.
I can't say enough about the friendliness and service of the owners, Patrick and Sabine. During our stay Sabine was mostly at another property they own, but Patrick was almost always there. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and they put on a lovely wine and cheese reception for all of the guests. We had flown in that morning from the US, arriving in Geneva one bag short-mine. I don't think I would have ever got it back without Patrick's help. He made several phone calls for me when my limited French didn't work and even went with me to the local post office several blocks away when the bag finally caught up to me.
I highly recommend this property and will be sure to stay there on my next visit to the area.
