I stay in this hotel for one night. Very small room and toilet. just beside the train station but not so noisy. Hopefully my room was equipt with aircondition. breakfast table was good also. I had a good stay for one night. Recommend this hote to others if they have late or early train ticket.

Booked a room for a two nights stay. Central location, but so close to the train station that it feels like the trains are in your room. There was no working AC and the room smelled like sewage. We left the room at 3am and booked a room at another hotel to actually get some sleep. Not recommended.

Dear Madam, Sir, Many thanks for having taken the time to post your comment on Internet. We mostly appreciate it. Though Hotel AlaGare is located right next to Lausanne train station, most of its rooms look onto a pedestrian street or a yard.

No reception at night! The room smelled cloak, and it was incredebly hot! No AC! This was summertime, so maybe It's better in the winter? The train passed by our window just 10 meters away, and it was impossible to sleep! It was claustrophobic! We had to move to another Hotel the same night, it was impossible to sleep there!

We got early check in on 3rd June and late check out on 4th . Receptionist(forgot name) was very helpful and provided city pass. Room is very next to train station and is in old city style with cute flowers on windows. They have kettle, coffee powder, milk powder in room which is very useful.

Lovely small hotel literally next to the train station, on a little road behind it. Despite its proximity, the hotel was very quiet. We had a room overlooking the little street, and it was perfectly quiet, only a little pedestrian noise in the morning and some in the early evening. Hotel itself was nicely appointed, the room was compact but... More

The location of this hotel is perfect if you need to catch an early train as it's 2 minutes walking from the rails, but still quiet. The staff was pleasant, the rooms are tiny but neat and clean. It serves the purpouse perfectly.

I stayed there for one night as it was quite close to the train station (literally next to it) which could be a plus but also a minus (read below.) The staff at the hotel were lovely, very helpful, directed me to specific areas I was looking for. The room I had was a single - quite small but cute... More

Clean though small with a great location. Loved the proximity of the lake. Complimentary bus pass. Good value. The staff was helpful. Being able to store our luggage at the hotel when we arrived three hours prior to check in was great. Our cousins who live in Lausanne recommended the hotel. We were pleased and will definitely return.

This was one of the worst nights i ever had at a Hotel. The room, 3rd Floor was facing direction to the Railwaystation of Lausanne, and the Railroad tracks are virtually 20m away from the Hotel.
