In Lausanne I prefer the Hotel Continental, because it is just in front of the railwail station. The rooms are renovated and now also the lobby and the reception. Well done, cogratulations. I like to stay in the Manz Hotels in Zürich, Lausanne and Basel. The staff ist very friendly, the location top and the service friendly and effective. Good... More

The Continental is ridiculously expensive for what you get. The breakfast that is included in the room rate is not a "continental breakfast". You are allowed bread, jam, yogurt, cereal and fruit. If you want cheese or ham you have to pay extra. If you want scrambled eggs, you have to pay extra. There is one member of breakfast staff... More

Does not appear to be very good from the outside, but once you go inside you will find a very unusual hotel. Quite quirky and different. Rooms are large with huge beds and a room safe. Our dinner was excellent cooked by two chefs in the room. Staff were helpful and friendly. Recommended.

When I stayed here recently I came out of the train station and thought: oh dear...! I was facing a concrete block that looked my old school built in the 1960s. However, I was wrong because inside, once in the tiny lift, the rooms were very good. Spacious rooms, tastefully decorated, firm beds. Air conditioning. Good rain-style shower, everything very...

The hotel can be a bit noisy as it's opposite the station. Friendly staff although long wait to check out in the morning. One towel was not clean but they change it swiftly. Overall a good hotel where I would stay again.

This was our third hotel in Switzerland, and I have to say that it was the nicest of the three! It is conveniently located across the street from the train station and not too far from the lake (there is even a Starbucks right next door!). From the outside it doesn't look terribly flashy, but once inside it is nice.... More

The Hotel Continental has a great location next to the train station, you arrive in Lausanne and within 5 minutes you can be in your room. The service is great, friendly, quick and efficient. The hotel from the outside looks like a 1970's shopping centre so you wont be staying here for the architectural delights. The reception has been modernised... More

Rooms are VERY small !!! The bed is in the middle of the room if you want to go from one site to the other you have to roll over the bed if you won't begging youre legs. So considering all the above, the rooms were too expensive at more then CHF 200 a night in this place. Great thing... More

From the outside the Hotel is one of the shameful results of the 60's architecture and make you brace yourself for a questionable experience. The reception area however makes you relax, at least a bit. The area is bright and friendly and I got greeted by friendly person at the desk. The room, single, was small but new. The bed... More

Hotel is nicely positioned by train and underground station and they provide guests with travel cards which is a nice bonus. Looking forward to next stay once reception area is re-build. I was surprised with good quality of internet connection - nice thing to have when you have to work late.
