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

Hotel in central location, with shops, bars and restaurants nearby. Selected rooms offer a wonderful lake view. Underground guarded parking is just across the road from the hotel. Room and bathroom are spacious and very clean. Very good comfort standard, similar to some luxury hotels. There is a restaurant, but it is often empty. It's not really attractive (cold atmosphere).

We got a good deal on this hotel. Great bang for your buck. It was a big hotel room for a European hotel. The rooms were great- great bathrooms. (we didn't have great working air conditioning- our only complaint) We were able to check in early and the desk staff was very helpful with our travel questions. You get a... More

I spent 2 weeks in this hotel and there is not much which can be reproached. Very quiet, beautiful large rooms with an amazing view, good breakfast, super efficient laundry. The only problem would be the room service: super expensive and very limited choice. They refused to bring me eggs because it was the evening and they cook eggs only... More

During the planning phase of our visit to Lausanne while on our road-trip through Italy, Switzerland and France I researched numerous hotel, restaurant and bar/pub internet search engines as well as studying maps of the city and the Hotel de la Paix once identified easily became my choice. We ended up reserving and staying in a suite with a lake... More

This large hotel in Lausanne center is probably more upscale than other properties I stayed in Switzerland. It might be that i got discounted price, anyway, comfort was higher than I expected. Room was large enough, had a bathtub (!). Personnel was friendly and helpful, but that is common for all Swiss hotels I visited. We were given free passes... More

We spent 3 nights at this lovely historic hotel when we were in town for a business/pleasure trip. The room was very comfortable, great beds, spotlessly clean, quiet, and the breakfast was varied and delicious in a room with a gorgeous view of the lake. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, an easy walk to the... More
