Like many cities where Airbnb is popular, Geneva has a severe rental shortage, with a vacancy rate of 0.45%. The most popular type of Airbnb listing: "Entire home/apartment" listings (which make up two thirds of Airbnb listings in Geneva), when they are rented frequently remove housing normally available to city residents.
si un logement est transformé en objet hôtelier par ce biais et donc est sorti du marché du logement, en violation de la LDTR. S'il devait être informé que de telles dérives prenaient une ampleur significative, il prendrait alors les mesures adéquates.
In addition, subsidised tenants would also not be allowed to offer housing to tourists with Airbnb, or other short-term rental platforms, and market tenants would need their landlord's approval, at the danger of eviction:
Il rappelle pour le surplus que toute sous-location est interdite dans les immeubles subventionnés au sens de la LGL. Si une telle sous-location devait être portée à la connaissance des autorités, le bail du locataire principal serait résilié sans délai. Dans le cadre des immeubles à loyer libre, toute souslocation est par ailleurs soumise à l'approbation préalable du bailleur, sous peine de résiliation de bail.

How is Airbnb really being used in and affecting your neighbourhoods?
Airbnb guests may leave a review after their stay, and these can be used as an indicator of airbnb activity.
The minimum stay, price and number of reviews have been used to estimate the occupancy rate, the number of nights per year and the income per month for each listing.
How does the income from Airbnb compare to a long-term lease?
Do the number of nights booked per year make it impossible for a listing to be used for residential housing?
And what is renting to a tourist full-time rather than a resident doing to our neighbourhoods and cities?
An Airbnb host can setup a calendar for their listing so that it is only available for a few days or weeks a year.
Other listings are available all year round (except for when it is already booked).
Entire homes or apartments highly available year-round for tourists, probably don't have the owner present, could be illegal, and more importantly, are displacing residents.
Some Airbnb hosts have multiple listings.
A host may list separate rooms in the same apartment, or multiple apartments or homes available in their entirity.
Hosts with multiple listings are more likely to be running a business, are unlikely to be living in the property, and in violation of most short term rental laws designed to protect residential housing.
