TRANSPORTATION FROM THE TRAIN STATION OR FROM THE AIRPORT
If you come from the airport, a cab is about CHF 40-50. You can also get a free ticket transport for Geneva main station, from which you can tram 12 or 15 to get to the street (get off at Blanche or Acacias respectively). If we are available, we can meet at the train station.
Located by the Arve River the flat is located at the limit between Geneva and Carouge. Carouge is a very pretty little village filled with cafes, restaurants and boutiques. There is also a farmers’ market on Saturday. Geneva city center is a few tram stops away (about 10 minutes) so you can chose to enjoy the clam of a village or the more happening life of the city.
The apartment is in a standing building. The kitchen, living room, washer/dryer are available for guests to use. We have also free wifi in the entire flat. You can watching some DVDs or enjoy the balcony in the summer over watching the river.
The apartment is ideally located in Quai du Cheval Blanc, by the Arve river and between the tram stops # 12 and 15 (10min tram from the Geneva-Cornavin train station).
There are free parking spots in the streets around the building for the night (beyween 7pm and 8am) and a paying parking at the end of the street during daytime.
You can either get off at Blanche on the Tram 12 line or at Acacias on the Tram 15 line (10 minutes from the Central Geneva station, Cornavin). Both are a few minutes walk from my appartment.
Here are a few rules of the house during your stay:
- pls remove shoes within the house
- pls smoke on the balcony if you are smokers
- you are welcome to use the kitchen but pls replace any item you use ( I know this sounds silly...but based on previous experience of previous guests eating my food!!). Please don’t bring food in your room.
- This is a vegetarian house. You are welcome to use the kitchen but please do not cook meat
- Also kindly replace any item you may break :)
There is a paper in the room with the wifi password and suggestions for restaurants that i have all tried and liked.
The wifi is switched off during the night.
Stayed two nights. Very nice flat, conteniently located close to the uni and easy to reach from the main station. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and had everything we needed. Sarah and her partner were very welcoming hosts. We'd definitely stay again!
We stayed 2 nights with Sarah and found her to be a lovely host. Apartment was very clean and it was great to have own bathroom. Great location. Would stay again.
Sarah and Philippe were the perfect hosts and their flat is lovely. It's in a great location; right on the river between Carouge and the city centre. The bedroom is fairly spartan, but the bed is comfortable and that's all you really need. For the price, it is great value for money.
L'appartement est très agréablement situé près de la rivière, entre Genève centre et Carouge. Sarah fournit efficacement toutes les informations pratiques. L'hôte dispose d'une salle de douche privée avec toilettes.
I enjoyed my stay with Sarah. The apartment was as described in the Airbnb description. There was a rack to hang my clothes on and plenty of shelving available for me. The house is vegetarian but they were pleased to let me use their kitchen. Having a private washroom was great. The city is easy to access from that location and it is really nice to be able to look out on the river from their balcony. I enjoyed my stay and I would certainly stay with Sarah again.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and it was an excellent one. Though Sarah was away during my stay, her sister and husband were very helpful in getting me situated. The room had space, outlets and good internet reception and was in a nice area of the city. Sarah even provided information on public transport, good local restaurants and a map/guidebook of the city.
I had a great experience staying with Sarah and Phillippe. Wonderful location, kind and discrete hosts, and everything corresponded with the description given. Highly recommend!
