The Hotel sits right beside a very large uphill road. The area is extremely chaotic, and the upside is that you have the metro station right at the doorstep. It could even be bearable for a night or two, perhaps in winter when you sleep with windows closed. But in summer it's a nightmare. Our triple room had a single... More

Did but enjoy the hotel much. Will choose Ibis or similar next time. Noisy road, a bit tired, okay beds and shower. Offensive cigarette smoke when entering hotel. Convenient parking Supermarkets next door Slow wifi (not different from most hotels).

Upon the reservation I was told that no money would be taken off my card and that the bill can be handled at check out. When we came to check in, the lady at the reception desk said that the room has been prepaid and that they charged the full amount on my card few days after the reservation was... More

How can you give a customer a cappuccino with real cream and filter coffee ? It's taste is just nasty and they sell it for 4.50 CHF without any shame ?? This is definitely a place where I will never come back.... I can't imagine other things but I know I won't try...

Briefly, the room I booked was not available, no effort made to satisfy my needs and very poor customer service or acceptance of wrongdoing. I booked a room at the Hotel Union in January - I specifically chose a room with a queen sized double bed as I am very tall and I have found this the only way I... More

Recently booked in with my teenage daughter as we were attending an event that would mean it would be too far to drive home at the other end of the lake. Everything seemed ok at first but the pub / restaurant timings were inflexible leaving us only a measly croquet-monsieur before we left for the event. On returning at 10.15... More

I had to travel to lausanne, Switzerland for business. It was my first time at that area and i had no idea what would be the most convenient option to stay. Considering the location to my head office, The Union Hotel was the closest property to chose if i wanted to save time in a cab while getting up to... More

I just stayed at Hotel l'Union for the second time and they were both pleasant, hassle-free experiences. I had a business meeting at a nearby university so to me the location was perfect. Also, there is a subway station beside the hotel making it very easy to go to downtown Lausanne. The rooms are comfortable and functional, the breakfast buffet... More

This small hotel is at the end of the subway line of Lausanne - which makes it easy to reach yet it is a bit far from the inner-city. Unfortunately it is right next to a busy intersection and the noise comes in. Otherwise the service was very friendly, the room was comfortable, quite large in fact.

I had the occasion to stay at the Hotel Union in Lausanne for a weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The decor was eye-catching and full of artifacts to view and to appreciate. Th location is directly across the street from a metro station, so it was very easy to get to the hotel, and also very easy to... More
