I visited for a business trip that was ultimately cut short. The Good: -Fantastic location - really nice to be able to walk across the road from the station after getting the train from Geneva airport. Lots of amenities and restaurants nearby. -Great staff - everyone was attentive and helpful. I found my bed too hard and requested an extra... More

Convenient location across the street from the train station. Next door to the Metro line and Starbucks. During the day the noise of jackhammering and other construction make napping a challenge. Friendly helpful staff speaks English. Small room compared to

The highest vaue which I found here is excellent staff, attentive, kind and helpful. Even in non-standard situation they do their best to solve your problem. Besides, even if it cannot be called luxurious it is quite decent, clean and well equipped. Location is perfect, however if your room is at the street side and you open the window -... More

The hotel is at a nice pleace near train station but you have to be careful to ask for a room on the oposite side of the main street. Hotel really needs freshing up and the style of interiour really needs to be changed, really does! But what was really excellente was the service which was so polite and attentive!... More

The hotel is directly across the road from the Lausanne train station. Right in front is the bus stop, and right next door is the Lausanne city train. Extremely convenient to get around. I got a city transport pass that was valid throughout the duration of my stay, which allowed me to travel around Lausanne on both bus and city... More

I had taken a business trip to this city for 4 days, in 2 instalments. 1st time was in the Continental for 3 nights, and then for 1 night only. Initially I had booked a single room as I was alone, and it saved some money for my company. What looked unusual is that in the same booking, various days... More

I stayed for two nights October 2015. The hotel is ok for a short stay. Rooms are clean but old fashion style and a bit noisy as the Main Street is just in front of the hotel. It is located just in front of the rail station and the fast food restaurants. Breakfast is just ok.

Great hotel, couldn't be more convenient in terms of location. Right beside the train station and metro terminal but remarkably quiet. Large, newly decorated rooms with balcony and very friendly and helpful staff. Parking was 9CHF for 24 hours which was a nice surprise.

Pros: Convenient location right opposite the Lausanne station, with an underground exit practically next to the hotel - To get to the hotel from the train station with luggage, walk to platform 1 and head to avenue de la Gare exit and there is a lift that takes you up to street level and then as you exit the lift...
