Venue

Perfectly Mambo Geneva Weekend will be held at the beautiful OptimHall in the Acacias neighborhood of Geneva, just steps away from the river Arve and a short walk from central Geneva. With its high ceilings, smooth dance floor, great acoustics, lounge and bar areas, and the capacity to welcome as many as 900 dancers, it's a perfect place to give our mambo dancers a delightful experience. 

For our out-of-town guests who will be driving, there will be plenty of parking spaces around the venue. You can also easily reach the venue by public transport (Bus 11 or Tram 15) - and public transport is free in Geneva if you stay in any of Geneva's hotels!

Hotels

We recommend a few hotel options not far from the venue. Currently, we are negotiating discounts for our guest with several hotels, and we'll keep you posted on those offers. 

Starling Hotel Residence

This 3-star residence hotel has 93 studios/apartments with fully equipped kitchen and rooms, as well as a gym. It's about an 8-minute walk from the venue. Depending on the studio, each one can host 2 to 4 people.

You can reserve your room with the code "2408perfec." Here's how you do it:

There are 3 types of rooms:

1. Classic studio: 20 sq. m (for 2 people, 1 Queen size bed): CHF 140 a night, with a possibility to cancel until 24 August.

2. Superior studio: 24 sq. m (for 2 people, 1 Queen size bed): CHF 160 a night, with a possibility to cancel until 24 August.

3. Grand studio: 32 sq. m (for 4 people, 1 Queen size bed and sofa bed on demand): CHF 200 a night, with a possibility to cancel until 24 August.

To book the rooms at this rate, there are a few quirks (read this carefully and follow to the dot):

1, Go to https://www.starling-residence-geneve.ch/

2. In the reservation box on the right, choose your dates. DO NOT put the promo code there (not yet). Click on “book now.”

3. On the next page, find the “Add code” box (at the top in the center). From the pull-down menu under “Discount code,” pick “Group Attendee.” Then, type the code “2408perfec”. Click “Add.”

4. In the pop-up window, click on “Select & Go to the next step.”

5. You'll see a calendar with the reservation dates. If they are correct, click on “Update dates of stay.”

6. Ta-dah!! You get to the room selection, where you can choose the room and book it.

7. If you are booking a classic or superior studio, put "1 person" in the form, even if you will be 2. This is to guarantee the special rate. You will only have to pay the tourist taxes for the 2nd person. If you are booking the Grand studio, put 1 person is you will be 2, and 2 if you will be 3 or 4. The math seems funny, but this will get you the best rate. If you are more than 2 people in the Grand studio, you'll need to contact the hotel to add a couch to the room.
