The hotel is very near to Lausanne train station. I stayed last january 10th to 16th ,2016. Breakfast is good . There are varieties of food but they don't have pure vegeterian noddles or any chicken items. I don't eat pork or beef.

Sweet tiny hotel with the smallest rooms ever. I could see inside the trains passing by my window. But, I loved my time in town and eating on the sidewalk cafes and wandering around. I was alone and found everything I needed and got back on the train bright and early!

You get off the train and if you miss the hotel, it is your fault. The hotel is basically at the train station. This is a no-frills-room-for-the-night sort of hotel. You get a bed, shower, toilet. No breakfast. Pastry and coffee shops nearby are OK but you can do better in other cities. Overall just a blaw experience. You will... More

We stayed at the Hotel AlaGare for three nights; we chose the hotel for price and location, since we were doing day trips by train and it was a half block from the station. We had two rooms. Switzerland was in the middle of an unusual- heat wave, with termperatures in the high 80s and even hitting 90. One room... More

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.

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.
