TL;DR: I do not recommend this host, even though the location is nice.
We were met by Sarah, Samuel's girlfriend, who provided the keys and rudimentary info about the apartment and surrounding area. The apartment was more or less as described, but despite the listing saying there is both a washer and dryer there is neither (laundromat is a block away). The internet is shared with other users in the building and is brutally slow (could only make audio-only (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) calls, and they still dropped/failed often). It was unseasonably hot in Geneva, and there is no A/C or fans available, making it uncomfortably hot, even throughout most nights. The location was very nice; easy to get to Cornavin and most parks/beaches/shopping. Samuel came by twice during our stay, though we were out both times.
I say this because at the end of our stay, despite him saying in writing that we could check out any time, he became quite upset when we wanted to leave at 5pm; when we told him it was in part to finish cleaning, he told us (again in writing) not to worry about the cleaning, he would do it. After moving our luggage to our new location, I went back to meet him only to find him extremely rude and aggressive. He tried to tell me the state of the apartment was disgusting, in order to levy both the cleaning fee and to try to claim even more money from us. When I pointed out that we had intended to come back and finish cleaning, but had ALREADY done almost a complete clean, including washing bedding, cleaning and washing out the fridge, sweeping and mopping/washing all floors and surfaces, he became irate over having crashed his motorcycle days earlier, and that this was a further burden. Since he had been to the apartment multiple times throughout our stay and had not ONCE said anything to indicate the state of the apartment was unacceptable, and since he had previously told us not to bother with any further cleaning (only to turn around later and try to use that to get more money) I can't help but feel that he was attempting to use us to help pay for a new bike or scam us in some other similar fashion. The way he treated me in person was completely unacceptable, especially as I had already indicated my willingness to do what little cleaning remained myself. So while the location was nice, I cannot recommend this host, since there is little recourse if he decides to act so immaturely. Save yourself the trouble and look elsewhere.
