We travel to Europe frequently and we often choose basic hotels that are clean and include free wifi and breakfast. This hotel fit that category, but we slept terribly here. Granted, much of the noise problem was out of the control of the hotel, but it was a result of their location. Staff: on the positive side, everyone at the... More

Great value for money - very clean, old style but good wifi and free. Close to everything in the city centre. Ideal. Great restaurants around. The staff are nice and breakfast is good. Ideal for a few nights. They also give you a complimentary travel card for 5 days incl busses and trams to discover Lausanne.

First off, reading some other reviews makes me wonder if this is the same hotel! No it is not cheap - but compare prices to other swiss hotels. If you want 5 star you will pay a lot lot more than this - just check. Firstly, the concierge was very friendly, polite, and helpful and we chatted often as we... More

Only one English TV station (CNN) as of May 2012. Great breakfast with melt in the mouth croissants and public transport card included. Friendly helpful staff. Electricity adaptors available at reception. Lift to... More

The hotel is situated in the middle of a pedestrian zone in central Lausanne. I kept the window open at night and was not bothered by traffic. I could hear church bells in the morning. The area is full of shops and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and explained all the features. They gave a pass that was good... More

Good points: - good location, in the nice pedestrian city center - good bread and coffee for breakfast - free sweets at reception, free bus pass Not so good points: - the breakfast music playlist - are they trying to make us depressed from the very morning? - nothing very original in the breakfast, it's the very same every morning...

We stayed here two full weeks. Our room was very large and on the first floor in the front. Even though the room faced the street, it's a pedestrian zone, so street noise was not a problem; however there was occasional noise from groups of people walking late at night and from the service vehicles that came through. The area... More

What a bad experience! We came into the city without a hotel, we looked at well situated hotels in a 3stars category... this one appeard to meet. Upon asking the (very friendly) receptionist told us "we have a great double room for you". At a price of CHF 190 (USD 195) this wasn't cheap but we decided not to risk,... More
