I slept already two times in this hotel. The first time with a colleague of mine and I shared a suite. We had two separate bedrooms, a living room, a fully equiped kitchen and a huge bathroom. That was fantastic! I love this kind of luxury with plenty of space, separated rooms and all the equipments like at home.
As I like this hotel so much I went there recently with a movie director and a professional photographer. This time we went skiing in France which is next door and well served by bus lines from Geneva.
What I like particularly in this hotel are: it is located in a quiet street with no car traffic and in a upscale area of Geneva out of the main hotels zone which is around the train station. La Cour des Augustins is really a design hotel and the way I like it: refined, simple and only a touch of it here and there. All the rooms have white walls and a dark brown wooden floor. But here and there you have something a bit flashy like a huge paintaing, or colourful furnitures or some funny objects. The rooms are extremely comfortable and so cosy and pleasant. I slept like a baby each night. The breafast buffet is large and of top quality. I think that anyone can find what he likes and wants for breakfast. As to the service, that's really upper league. A front desk staff picked up my suitcase at my arrival and got me in my room, ask me if I was pleased and ask for anything I wanted. Each time I passed by the reception I got a smiley face and I got plenty of help for our trip to France to ski. This was the most pleasing, relaxing and joyful week-end in an 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.
