Nice hotel, central location and amazing view to the lake and the mountains. Unfortunately our room was in a floor under renovation (!) without any view. The breakfast was very poor and the restaurant very expensive.

Dear VasilisVr, Thank you for taking time to submit us your feed-back and impressions. We are in process of renovating 11 rooms, the heavy and noisy part is soon finished. We have taken all necessary measures to avoide a maximum of disturbance for our clients. La Paix Restaurant provides a lunch menu at CHF 45.- and 2 evening menus at... More

We stayed in this beautiful historic hotel in August before traveling to Chamonix. We arrived midday and walked uphill to the hotel-about 15 minutes. The hotel is located in a trendy area with lots of shopping and cafes. We enjoyed wandering through the historic district and down to Ouchy to see the Olympic museum and walk along the lake. Our...

We stayed in this lovely hotel the last three days of our two week vacation in Switzerland. Arriving by train, we walked 15 minutes uphill to the hotel. Unless traveling light, I would suggest getting a taxi. This hotel is extremely nice and the staff very professional and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated and very spacious with a view...

We stayed in this hotel for an overnight trip with children so had connecting rooms which worked very well. The rooms were extremely spacious, with the main room having a large sitting area, huge bathroom with separate bath and large walk in shower, and the second room for the children was also very sizeable. The hotel staff were great -... More

Great location. Rooms were very large and nicely maintained. Great view of the lake from our room. Close to train if you are arriving by train as we did but an uphill walk. Reception very helpful for finding dining places close by. Highly recommend.

Walked from train station. Great location. Our room was perfect and it was a bonus to have a balcony and a wonderful view! The bar was great after a full day of walking to relax and enjoy excellent wine. We ended up staying an extra day! The staff was warm and friendly in all departments. Gluten free breads were available... More

So this was a disappointment. The first impression when parking the car in their garage after driving for 11 hours were really irritating. They have certain rules, I'm not going to bring it up. Same when leaving. The receptionist was a bit arrogant. The room was small but there were space for luggage and to be fair, it was quiet.... More

An efficient Swiss family-owned hotel, a somewhat surprising interior-decor cross of bland business furniture and fittings with more arty or artistic touches, including the small Indian elephant in the entrance foyer. A nice small bar to the right before the lifts offers a discrete watering hole between appointments, and there are also cafe tables that look onto the street. The... More

We liked the hotel very much. It is located on a hill, overlooking Lac Leman so the view of the lake was magnificent. Make sure you get a room facing the lake. However, note that not all rooms have a balcony, but the ones that don't have an extra big bathroom, with an additional shower on top of the bathtub... More

Stayed here for one and half months. The hotel is good, located in the heart of Lausanne. Got the perfect room with the Geneva Lake view. Breakfast was good with friendly staff. Highly recommended for visit in Lausanne. Really close to Supermarket and you can go everywhere in Lausanne from there since it is really close to St Francois bus... More
