Restaurants and local access to grocery store very nearby, with good bus service but also walkable. I had to return by bus one night after 11 p.m. and felt very safe walking from bus stop to apartment. Certainly will look to stay again. One small drawback for me was how rainy Geneva was for the entire stay!

Helpful owner, plenty of space, sunny, outside space in courtyard, well equipped, some nearby cheap shops, loads of restaurants, very short walk to the lake. Recommended.
