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

I stayed here in the month of April for business and was very much impressed by this wonderful property. Everything here was excellent and exceeded all my expectations. Rooms were quiet big, spacious and well-appointed with luxurious things. Bed was very comfortable and pillows were good. All the meals included a great variety and were delicious too. Staff is very... More

Stayed here for a week on business and was not disappointed. The hotel is a typical family owned three star hotel with not too many fancy features but a lot of cozy elements and good value for money. Room was quite small but spacious enough when you are out most of the day. The rooms are definately not new, but... More

i travelled to lausanne in feb 2013. there were some issues with my booking, but the beautiful Somali lady in the reception was so nice and quick to help. I felt at home instantly. The chef went out of my way to recommend meals which met my 'non-Swiss' taste. Location is fantastic; just opposite the metro. everything worked impeccably and... More
