A contemporary boutique housed in buildings that date back to the 1850s, close to the Old Town, the shopping hubs and Geneva’s contemporary art centre -- the 4-star La Cour des Augustins offers the best of all possible worlds.

A stroll around the Old Town (10 minutes walk away), with its cobbled streets, museums and the Saint-Pierre Cathedral, is a great way to start soaking up some Swiss atmosphere. Just a little further on you’ll find the shopping streets of the Rues-Basses, complete with luxury boutiques. Culture vultures will head for Place de Neuve, 15 minutes’ walk away and bordered by the Conservatory of Music, the Grand Théâtre and the Parc des Bastions. For art lovers, there’s the Quartier des Bains, with its wide range of contemporary galleries and museums -- you’ll find the first of these just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel.

While the hotel does not have a restaurant for evening dining, there are plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants nearby. The hotel serves a hearty breakfast buffet each morning (a supplement applies). Perks for guests include a complimentary Geneva Transport Card (available upon check-in) and free access to the on-site fitness centre with a small gym, a sauna and a steam room.

There are 16 guest rooms and 24 suites, all individually decorated, with modern designer furniture and contemporary artworks. All rooms have air-conditioning, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machines, TVs and iPod docking stations. Suites feature separate lounge areas and fully equipped kitchens.
