Long-time Geneva resident of a multicultural and multilingual background (Swiss and Italian) happy to share my wonderful hometown with interested visitors. I know the ropes of the city and am happy to point you to the local highlights!
Laura purchased this studio in 2011
New, renovated, simple and efficient location for maximum freedom without the constraints of expensive hotel accommodations!
Perfect pied-à-terre for short or longer-term visitors to the European seat of the United Nations or nearby mountain areas, skiing or sightseeing afficiandos such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, Annecy, Lausanne, and the Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe!)
Anyone who has spent time reading vrbo reviews, learns that words like "cute" and "charming" often hide a multitude of problems, such as tiny, no hot water, bad bed. airbnb listings are worse, they tend to be a room in someone's house with all its problems. this is without doubt the best vrbo property i've enjoyed over the last 10 years. it is like staying in a top hotel but the comfort of a flat not a bedroom. it is exactly what you see in the photos. a very clean, very well presented studio apartment, perfect for one or two persons. a very comfortable bed. a strong shower. excellent linens on the bed, good towels in the bathroom. a very good kitchen for those who care to cook, or if you just want to make coffee and breakfast in the am like me. the building is well secured and the windows are quite noise proof. also you are on the top (7th) floor so you are removed from the street noise. the balcony looks right at the mt saleve. in addition to wifi you have a full range of channels on the flatscreen tv. you are right in the champel district which is a real neighborhood where people live full of little shops, groceries, not like the mess around the gare. it is two blocks to the #3 bus which goes straight to the place neuve and the gare for every connection. or you can walk to town or any of the sites if you prefer, i always go to carouge and that took me 18 minutes with connections. laura does a marvelous job of making the apartment comfortable, yet you don't feel like you are invading someone's house with all their personal effects. everything is in top condition. finally i would be remiss if i did not say a word about the owner laura. she picked me up at the gare, dropped me off there again, just because she is a helpful person. she walked me through the flat and i understood how everything worked the first time. she invited me to call if i had a problem using anything. i was treated like a guest not a tenant. thanks laura it was a pleasure to rent your flat -- i have to stop or you will raise the rent! this will absolutely be my home base from now every time i come to geneva. thanks for making this such a great vrbo experience. p.s. you might ask vrbo why we pay in euros not francs, or do they think switzerland is part of the common market? quel scandale!
Very small studio in good location.
The pictures make it way larger than it is
Internet not working
Only one washer was working for a full building making difficult to get it. The second one was never fixed for all my stay
Cleanness was ok
Deposit not fully refunded
For those who want to visit Geneva, this apartment is the place to stay. It's better than a hotel accommodation and the price is just right. It was exactly as shown in the photo. Very clean and has a good location. Everything is just a stone's throw away.
The apartment was superb and was everything we were looking for and needed. It was extremely well furnished and equipped with everything you require for a self catering stay in any town. It was situated in a lovely suburb and very close to the bus stop and only a 5 minute bus ride to the centre of Geneva. The owner was extremely helpful and provided lots of information relating to the local area and amenities. We would definitely stay here if returning to Geneva in the future.
Hubby & I enjoyed a delightful stay in this bright & cozy 'nest', ideally located in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet just 10 minutes walk to the Old City...5 more minutes to the lake! The owner was gracious & welcoming, the amenities perfect! 5 stars all around!
I stayed in Laura's apartment for two months this summer while I worked in Geneva. I'm a law student from the U.S., and I had an internship at the University of Geneva, so I wanted to find a comfortable space in which I could feel at home. Laura's apartment is so ideal! It has every sort of amenity that you could think of and the apartment is completely set up for an extended or short term stay.
Since I was staying in Geneva for so long, Laura picked me up at the bus station, gave me a tour of Geneva, and helped me find all the local grocery stores, post offices, etc., that I would use on a regular basis during my stay. She was so hospitable and she made herself available whenever I needed her. I had a bit of bad luck during my travels to Geneva, and Laura went out of her way to help me sort everything out upon my arrival. She had such a warm spirit and smiling face any time I reached out to her for directions, recommendations, or even just to say hello.
I would absolutely recommend this wonderful apartment and Laura as a host to anyone traveling through Geneva. She even got used to me jokingly calling her my "Geneva Angel," though it was also quite true. Not only would I stay at this apartment if I found myself in Geneva again, but I know that I'll keep in touch with Laura as a friend in the future as well. I've stayed in several apartments through VRBO and other apartment hosting sites, but I can honestly say Laura is the best host that I have ever had.
Summer music festivals (of which the Montreux Jazz) and our Geneva City Festival with world-acclaimed firework display (2nd Saturday in August), United Nations headquarters, Swiss watch country and home to the best chocolate!
