Not what I expected
This apartment is definitely not what’s listed online. Upon arriving, I was never given check-in instructions and was forced to stay at a hotel. The address listed it wrong. It’s number 9, not number 25. There is a chair broken in the apartment which has been there for a few month according to older reviews. There is no AC, and in order to keep the room cool, you have to open the windows at night, but then you can’t sleep because of the noise at all hours of the night. I will say, the location is great, but the apartment is much smaller than advertised online. There is essentially no kitchen and the bed doesn’t seem to want to pull out all of the way. Overall, this should be expected because of the price, but I was very underwhelmed.
Very noisy traffic audible
Please note that this property is number 9, not 25, as the given address states. The through road is deafening at all times and earplugs come highly recommended if you stay here; we bought some from a local pharmacy during our stay. One of the legs of a kitchen chair fell off (under its green cover), when sat on, there is a tile missing from the side of the bath and some small sections of the wooden floor. There was no soap, other than washing up liquid, so do bring shower gel etc. Sheets are stretch nylon. On the positive side, the property is well sited and charactered, with lots of books and art. Only a few minutes' walk from the main station, a 25 min walk or 15 min bus trip to UN and a quick train ride from the airport. Also an easy walk to shops and beautiful lake Geneva. It was good to have access outside regular hours with instructions on how to access the key. There are plentiful kitchen utensils and pans.
Not VRBO regular quality lodging
I have been renting and enjoying VRBO properties for over 7 years, in the USA, Canada, Costa Rica and Italy. This apartment is situated in a great location, in the heart of Geneva. However, it was not clean and the bedding was not acceptable. The kitchen was poorly equipped. I am disappointed that VRBO has not requested that the unit be brought to its regular standards.
Centrally located, moderately priced small apartment.
This apartment has obvious advantages and minuses. Geneva is expensive and ite is probably difficult to find a cheaper alternative of any quality. The apartment is cosy and reasonably functional but ha not been renovated for some time. The street outside is busy and some traffic noise is unavoidable. Apart from the the location is excellent with almost all sights within walking distance.
This was an excellent stay. Perfect appartement, very clean, with everything you need in it, in a very good location. Thank you 😊
Thank you for your kind feedback. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will be coming back soon.
The property was sufficient for our needs. Proximity to train station was convenient.
The location of the property, on an extremely busy and noisy street caused us to have great difficulty sleeping. There is no air conditioning so in order to get airflow in the unit the windows need to be opened. However, if you open the windows you will contend with very loud motorcycles, trucks and cars at all times of the day and night, pedestrians outside the window having loud conversations into the very late hours and sirens from police and emergency vehicles. There were times we could barely carry on a conversation. If the unit had air conditioning and the windows could be closed for sleeping my rating of the property would be higher. The owners are very pleasant and easy to reach and very accommodating.
