This hotel and the staff are INCREDIBLE!!! We can't thank all of them enough for making our stay so warm and welcoming. We were amazed at all of the care they took to make sure that we were well taken care of and they helped us tremendously with a difficult situation that occurred in the city. We are SOOO grateful...

My family and I stayed here one night and even though the location was excellent (right next to the train station) the beds were likely the most uncomfortable beds we've ever slept on. I kept waking up from shooting pains in my back or shoulders or hips depending on how I was sleeping. It was just SO HARD, it felt... More

I enjoyed my two-night stay at the Continental. The Tripadvisor reviews were accurate. It really is across the street from the train station. I hade a view of the train station from my window. The stay was quiet. A great choice if you are headed to Montreux to take the Golden Pass train ride. Room 414 had bed positioned in... More

This has got to be the nicest hotel near a train station in the world. Rooms are super clean and modern and also come with a safe and refrigerator. There is an espresso machine and tea in the reception. Breakfast was really expensive so best to get something at the Starbucks or in the train station for much cheaper. My... More

I wanted a base close to Lausanne railway station and this fitted the bill perfectly, being directly opposite with the local buses and metro on the doorstep. On arrival a very pleasant young man on Reception showed me to my room 304, and for a single it was spacious with a compact bathroom and shower well stocked, and a bottle... More

Excellent hotel right across street from Lausanne train station. Had rear facing room so unsure if train noise a problem. Very clean and rooms seem newly renovated. VERY nice waterfall shower. Friendly staff, quick check-in, free Nespresso coffee, free wifi, air conditioning. Only complaints: Beds are a bit hard and breakfast too expensive at 20 CHF...I can just walk across... More

The hotel location is very convenient but noisy. There is no proper parking for tourist coaches outside the hotel, as a result we were in danger of been hit by passing cars as we were collecting our suitcases from the coach. The lobby is very small, when we were there six people with our suitcases it was really crowded.

This is a basic hotel in a great location for travellers as it is opposite the rail station. It has all the facilities that a traveller will need for a short stay. Some of the rooms have very old air con units.

Used this hotel many times when working in Lausanne, because it's location is perfect (rail station over the street). The rooms are so far comfortable and everything needed is there and works, correct table to work with sufficient light, good bed, efficient aircon, functional and modern bathroom, small refrigerator etc. Just when you have to pass between the bed and...
