This hotel is really in front of the train station in Lausanne. The bed is very comfortable and the breakfast was good. I would recommend if you want to be near the train station and center of Lausanne.

Location of the hotel is very ideal...across Train station, front of the bus stop and just beside Metro. Very accessible but a bit noisy. You just have to get used to it. Anyway, at night time Lausanne sleeps early. Hotel staff and service is not that impressive... or maybe it has something to do with the culture?

This hotel is located just in front of the main train station in Lausanne, Switzerland. It is very convenient to finish the working day, get out from the train and 2min later you're in the room. I got a room at the 1st floor which was tiny. from the bed-end side to the wall - there were only 40cm -... More

The price of the accommodation is only justified by the very convenient (for some) location, just across the road in front of the main railways station, and a few strides away from the city centre. My room was minuscule; clean (yes: we are in Switzerland), yet not odourless. It was located on the back of the building on the first... More

Hotel is located right next to Lausanne railway station, staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are well equipped including a good wifi access, and bathrooms are just renovated, although a bit smallish. Coffee machine was available at corridor. Breakfast was a real disappointment with only croissants, juices, yogurt and coffee/tea being available. On the following morning I noticed another... More

In many other cities you would expect to pay somewhere around $100-$120 (US dollars) for this type of hotel close to the main railway station. But Switzerland prices are significantly higher, and the 200CHF that I paid for one night actually represents reasonable value in this area. Nice and clean, friendly, free wifi (but it was struggling significantly with backhaul... More

Rooms are ok, breakfast was average. Car parking is little bit far around 300m. Location is good next to metro station and in front of train station. There is supermarket in the train station which is very near.

The rooms are pretty small, and in mine the bed was less than comfortable. However staff are very friendly and helpful.
