If you are traveling by train, the location cannot be beat. But this is one of those sad, rundown hotels that have seen better days. The bathroom was very nice and clean and the room was large, but it had that mildewy smell that older hotels sometimes have -- it is fine for one night for business travel (which is... More

Stayed two nights for a family trip. Positive: close to the city centre and just 4 stops to the lake. Proximity to plenty of restaurants. Clean. Kind reception. Spacious bedroom. Negative: Original decor, I would say worth 4 stars in the '70s... nowadays it is quite old throughout, cracks on the walls and floors Broken bath tap, old bath, hair... More

The hotel is certainly more personal than any of the "big" names with a "turn of the century" feel. The room I got was fairly big with a view of Lake Geneva. The gym is a bit small, and has not A/C but usable. The location is a huge plus if you´re coming by train like I did as it´s... More

Stayed for four nights on business. The room was clean, tidy and roomy. A mix of old and modern decor throughout. I did not use the fitness centre on this trip as the weather was nice so I ran outside. The key area for improvement is breakfast at the cost of 20CHF. The selection was very limited and on some...

My room was particularly spacious, and surprisingly quiet given the proximity to the main Lausanne railway station. It is also right on the metro line. Impressive breakfast spread with breads, cheeses, meats, cereal, eggs, fruit, etc. Good wi-fi. The bathroom was very comfortable -- I would like a tub like this at home! The staff were very pleasant. Hotel was... More

We like this hotel's location best since it is slightly beyond the fray of congestion where the other hotels are located. Just exit the front of the station walk to the right, cross the street and continue slightly uphill one block turn left and the front entrance is on the left of the side street. There is an imposing flight... More

Good to pass a night especially if you travel by train. A short walk from the station and my room was very quiet and functional. Breakfast is simple and complete. So, if you have a night and come in with the train I would recommend this. If you stay a bit longer and have the money to spend you're probably... More

Compare to 10 other hotels in Lausanne I satyed in which were mostly 3-4 stars this one by far I consider the best so far. Rooms are bigger, extremely clean and quiet. Impecable service and great decor. The onlu thing I dont like is the choice of pillows.

Good location, just few steps from Lausanne train station! The price is reasonable for a suiss hotel. Also close to downtown where you have other restaurant options, including an italian and a sea food place.

Rooms are small but reasonably appointed, perfectly clean. You do get your exercise if you walk from the railroad station, which is just 5 minutes away on foot. The hotel is up a short, uphill street, then when you get to the front door there is one flight of stairs to get to the reception desk. Breakfast is quite good.... More
