Aesthetics – Old World Geneve

Old World Charm in Geneva 

Despite constantly trying different accommodations in Geneva, I’ve never been impressed with any of its apartments offerings on Airbnb until I managed to book this old world charm. I was incredibly lucky, this apartment is usually always booked. But I was determined this time to keep searching until I found one that would not just be a place to lay my head but also inspire me. I would stay for almost a week, and I wanted to look forward to returning home from meetings. As such, apart from wanting to be within a 15 minute tram ride from the office, the rest of my search markers was based on what I didn’t want it to be. Not small, not cramped, not musty, not for students.

I had a super time in this apartment. It is a 2 bedroom apartment spread over 200 metres, located about 7 minute walk from Gare Cornavin, and with a beautiful view of the lake. All of this spells out ‘palatial’ in this city. More icing on the cake? The building was a beautiful period building, but with an elevator. The apartment had high ceilings giving off a very old world vibe. Each of the 2 bedrooms was so super spacious. There is also a living room with a fireplace and can be connected to the second bedroom. In addition, there is a ‘laundry room’ for you to store your luggage or iron your clothes. There is one bathroom and one lavatory.

The apartment is often booked so if you would like to stay here it would be worth it to plan in advance. Click here for the Airbnb link.

Lovely entrance, makes me think of the Art Deco generation

Old bannisters (though there is a very functional lift)
