Lovely, clean and safe place to stay in Geneva with breakfast included. We found the apartment easily according to Irene's directions and enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend.

fantastic AirBnB experience I stayed for 2 nights at Irene's place because I was in Geneva for a conference. Irene's hospitality and friendliness is mind-blowing; she puts the second B in AirBnB again by making a superb breakfast each morning (also beers and icecream in the evening). the apartment is good, and very nicely located near Uni-Mail, where I had to be. Sorry, Irene, to be raising expectations now :-)

This was my first time using airbnb for traveling and I am pretty much stoked about this experience. Irene and Pier are wonderful hosts and really good human beings. They took care of me in a really delightful way. Making me feel at home straight away. I really enjoyed spending time with them. Especially their haute cuisine was awesome. I had the chance to experience new food and different tastes every day during my stay. Even though my visit was business related, I could make the most of it from sightseeing Geneva to making new friends in a short period of time. Overall this was a 5star experience with good communication before, during and after my visit, a really comfortable sleeping place, clean and tidy apartment, beautiful city, great hospitality and amazing hosts. I would definitely recommend Irene's airbnb, especially if you want more than a normal travel experience. You will feel like coming home.

I booked this stay for my 24 year old daughter who needed a restful, safe place after a grueling work and travel regime. Michaela loved the apartment - said it was "very cool" and Irene was delightful. Directions for getting there via public transport were clear and easy to follow. The breakfast was ample and delicious. Michaela loved everything about her stay, especially the really comfy double bed, and we will book it for ourselves when we are next in Geneva!

It would be hard to find a better host than Irene. Her clean and quiet apartment is idealy located between Plainpalais and Carouge within walking distance of any place worth visiting in Geneva. Also there is a tram stop close by to take you to destinations like CERN or UN. On top of usual things she provided an access to a computer, a charger for my phone, and even a choice of room in her apartment. We spent two evening over tea chatting about various things and each morning I woke up to a nice breakfast! I strongly recommend!

Irene was an amazing host!!! When we arrived at the apartment there was plenty of food to snack on and a bottle of wine! The room was in a great location, with a tram stop just outside the building. She made us a great dinner the first night we were there, with leftovers that lasted us the next few days. She gave plenty of help and suggestions as to where to go and what to do in the city. She was always available for any questions we had. When leaving, we had a train booked from Geneva to Paris, as did Irene, she came with us to the train station and helped us get settled. Thank you Irene for an amazing stay! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Geneva!
