A modern place to crash, enjoy chats and share! You'll have a gorgeous view on the mountains and you might get some piano ! The place is very well connected (direct line to train station and airport) and a mere 15min of foot from the city center.
The flat is in a very safe area of Geneva. It is 80m2 with balcony, on the top floors. The building is modern and is located just outside the center. It takes 10min on foot to get to the center; 15min. to walk to the lake, 15 min. to get to the old town. There is also a bathtub / shower.
Please ask if you have any questions!
Our service is minimal - you will enjoy the privacy of the room, but please be aware that we are renting the sofa-bed (no key is provided and the flat is closed during the day); this is the most convenient option for guests who need a place to stay over night, with clean sheets a sober room, Wifi and a place to wash - Our shower is a colorful one too :)
Schedules should be discussed ahead of time, so that everything runs smoothly - please do not hesitate to ask questions - we value communication!
Interaction with Guests
We love to have a chat with our guests and get to know them - stories are most welcome :) our working schedule however leaves little time for this but if it can happen we'll be glad!
You will find ATM and post-office close-by and many parking places. There is also a special tea-room nearby, specialized in cakes, chocolates and the most amazing almond-croissants of Geneva!
The neighborhood has many restaurants (italian, japanese, chinese, kosher food), several super markets and a late-opening convenience store.
There is a direct bus line to the train station, the international organizations (UN, WHO, WMO, WTO, OHCHR, UNHCR, WIPO, ILO, IRCC etc.), and the airport. There are also parkings downstairs.
Getting to our place from the station or the airport is very easy and straightforward.
Other Things to Note
Please check the available amenities list to ensure that what you need is provided.
In particular: we do not serve meals, the kitchen is not available and we do not provide a key. The flat is closed during the day (we all work).
We want to make sure your stay is the best you'll ever have! But to do this, we'll need to know what you like and you'll need to know how we welcome our guests. So please read this and you'll know everything about us! :))
Generally speaking, we do not compare Airbnb to hotel service; we like to have friendly guests whom we can chat with while having drinks :) - our schedules however do not allow us to be available at all times for our guests.
Because we like to have chats and learn to know various travelers and their adventures, we also ask our guests to have a complete profile (with description and a face photo) before sending a request, so we can have an idea of who will be staying with us. If you are coming with a friend, we would appreciate some details about that friend (what does that friend do, how old, etc.).
Finally, while we respect all choices of life and have no comment to make on one or another, we would ask our guests to ensure that they have a good body hygiene as - in our home - we enjoy perfume, soap and cleaning product smells ;-)
Other than that, we have these few special requests:
- Please do not walk with shoes in the house (we have lovely slippers :));
- Please do not come home drunk (it's not against fun, it's to avoid some problems that we had in the past, which involved broken stuff);
- We do not have the time to accommodate demanding guests (for example - if you expect hotel service) and don't serve any meals or provide a key to the flat.
- If you have concerns, please share them so that these concerns can be addressed and we can make sure your stay is the best you've ever had :)
We want to leave you a good feedback and we hope to get a good one from you - communication is the best way towards this goal :)
See you soon and thanks for reading!
ps: when booking, we would appreciate that you start your message with "Heya Chocolates!" (this will show us that you have read this little description and that you're likely a good candidate and WE'LL OFFER YOU A TABLET OF delicious Swiss CHOCOLATE as a reward :P )
Nicolas is a welcoming and warm person and his home is easily accessible. I had a very relaxed stay and enjoyed the opportunity to meet Nicolas who is very talented and interesting.
Nicht empfehlenswert für Leute wie mich die für Business ( Autosalon Presse Tage, welche um 7.00 anfangen) kommen, da es keinen Schlüssel gab. Auch musste ich mich nach meinem Gastgeber richten wann zu hause!! Gebucht 2 Tage bekommen nicht mal 1,5 h. ( check- in 19.00 und nach 1 Tag check out 9.00) Da kein Schlüssel auch nix zum Frühstücken wie zb ein Stück Brot. Bus auch sehr teuer (10 E), Wohnung sauber.. Da ist Couchsurfing genauso gut.. Für mich war es Stress pur plus Kosten am Tage. Warum soll ich mich als zahlender Gast nach meinem GG richten wenn ich für mein Buisness komme?? Ändern konnte ich nix da einfach keine Zeit.. aber nach 18 h auf den Beinen uns paar Stunden Schlaf ist man total fertig.obwohl man fit sein muss!! .. Am Anfang hörte es sich gut an, er hat sich gekümmert wann ich ankomme.. und als ich da war, hiess es du kannst nicht mehr raus da ich keinen Schlüssel für dich habe'. .. Ich habe einen anderen Airbnb Surfer getroffen, der meinte das wäre nicht normal, denn ich zahle ja..Vielleicht etwas für Leute die nicht um 5 Uhr aufstehen müssen wenn sie erst um 22.00 in die Wohnung konnten, für mich war es too much.. auch befürchte ich das all die Referenzen von ihm hier abgesprochen sind denn er schickte mir am Nachmittag als ich auf dem Weg zurück nach München war ein Sms - um gemeinsam die Referenzen zu diskutieren....!!!! Da ich die einzige negative Bewertung hier bin, muß es jeder für sich selbst entscheiden was er glaubt.. ich würde es nicht nochmal machen... Sorry Nicolas..
Jul was informed of everything she is complaining about before she came and I asked her if she was ok with it before accepting her. She accepted and said it was ok.
Actually you even got more than what we had agreed to (i.e. dinner and wine which were not included in the deal and you took without asking my flatmate's product, although she was not even your host) but you are still complaining. I'm sorry Jul but if you ask for a coffe you cannot complain because you receive a coffee. Especially when you are offered a full refund.
The reason I asked you if "you wanted to discuss anything before we leave references" (no i did not offer to discuss the references themselves) is because I guessed you were unhappy but I did not know why because I did my best to make your stay comfortable and you never told me anything that I could have done to improve your stay. If there were misunderstandings, I think it would have been better to clear them out. When you told me about your "problem" I offered you twice full refund but you refused. I don't see how this can be bad and I am surprised you don't mention that I offered you that refund. This is bad faith and bad business attitude Jul, I'm sorry.
i spent just one night in this apartment. nicolas is a good host and a very nice and open person. he is very reliable, very flexible and the communication was good. the apartment for itself is very clean and not far away from the historical center. i totally recommend it!
It was really a pleasant time with Nicolas! He's smart and super nice and I really enjoyed my 2 days staying with him. The apartment is convenient-location, transportation, environment are all good, and Nicolas is a well-organized host. And thank you for the chocolate and your music!! :)
So perfect，I am strongly recommend you to stay in Nico's warm house if you need travel in Geneva. I booked 2 nights and Nico prepared the clean and tidy, homey, independent room for us. He's a handsome guy and willing to chat with us. He gave suggestions to our travel route and help us a lot, even though he was busy, he still made a cake to treat us for celebrating our honeymoon. I will still choose Nico's house for my next trip.
Nicolas' apartment was absolutely fantastic. Exactly as described, clean, quiet, and easily reached by public transport. I booked the room at the last minute and was very pleasantly surprised by the very quick response. Nicolas was a welcoming and friendly host, open to a good chat. Highly recommended and great value for money.
Nicolas is a very friendly host. The appartment was very clean and cultivated. There was a perfect transport connection to the city centre. It felt like being at home! I would higly recommend staying at Nicolas´ place!
