Lausanne is a very lovely place a bit crowded and very busy with lots of tourists. It would have to be one of our highlights on our tour. Switzerland is very expensive but worth while the country is very beautiful. The train system is just fantastic.

I've stayed several times in this hotel. The location is excellent, about hundred meters from the railway station uphill towards city center. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and equipped with ironing equipment. Hotel has two restaurants, although I have never seen the Thai restaurant being open. The breakfast is extensive, but it is not included in any room prices and... More

we were delighted by the location, the architecture is unique and offers a choice of rooms. our room faced the rue Petit Chene on a Saturday night, did not get much sleep. in addition the a/c was not working on a one of the hottest days of the year, so window had to be open, putting us right next to...

We were not expecting much from this hotel because it was a last minute booking and the price was a lot lower than others in the area. We were wrong to think that! This is an excellent hotel - very friendly staff, easy parking, clean, LARGE room, modern. We were only there for one quick night but could not have... More

Was not expecting this place to be so nice. It was recommended by the tourism office at the train station. She said "it's just across the street, up the hill, but hurry, only a few rooms left." I expected run down. Instead I discovered really big rooms filled with sunlight. The bathroom is big and spacious. My sons have their... More

This hotel is very conveniently located, just a few minutes from the train station and a metro. Our biggest disappointment with the hotel was the check out experience. We prepaid our stay with Expedia and knew that all we had to pay at check out was the city taxes. When we came to the clerk she said we have to... More

In general i like this hotel after its restauration. But I still cant understand how unfortunate it is that the restaurant staff speak no single word of English in a modern and global world. Apparently it's not an internatinal hotel yet.

Our office team nearby recommended this hotel. The rooms were quite generously sized by European standards- would have been comfortable for quite a long stay. I was originally in room 304. No complaints at all except it was 35 degrees and the air conditioning wasn't quite as strong as I'd hope. But it was something so can't complain too much.... More

Hotel is located close to the trainstation of Lausanne but also close to the city center. Walking distance to visit the center and a lot of restaurants. Hotel restaurant is good especially if you like Asian food. Drinks at the bar are quite expensive especially a gin-tonic. Hotel rooms are nice as long as they face to the garden or... More
