Real chateaux and the room is beautifully modernized design. Very clean. Big bath tab with window. The hotel was really nice for us to upgrade. So kind!! If you prefer to stay near the lake, 100% I recommend this hotel. 3 mins from metro. Pity that there is no room service for diner.

I happened to stay here as Geneva was fully booked and crazy expensive for even poor hotels. Conclusion: what a blessing. For business travellers going between Zurich and Geneva, this is a brilliant way to break up the trip. You can zip into Geneva on the direct train in about 30mins and get far more for your money as a... More

In a city and indeed country where prices can exceed well beyond quality, this is a hotel where your money delivers sufficient value. When comparing this hotel to hotels in Geneva, for example, the value versus price really shines. It's also difficult to compare a 5 star in a old building such as this to a 5 star in a... More

This beautiful building sitting on the edge of the lake overlooking the mountains has all you want from a hotel. There may not be too much to do within the surroundings area but the Metro is just across the road taking you into the lovely old town of Lausanne. The metro also takes you to Lausanne Gare where the train... More

6 times here, 6 different rooms, 6 times quality! From the "standard" to whatever Suite, the feeling is the same. Spacious, luxurish, brightness, feeling-good. I cant get some of the reviewers mocking about the staff. If there's something u can NOT say it regards the lack of attention. Polite and discrete (that's how Switzerland is) and at your service in... More

The hotel's building is wonderful ; like a fairy tale castle. It's by the lake and just across a very good Italien restaurant where Lord Byron has written one of his novels. Its decoration is wonderful , I especially liked the lounge where they used glass a lot so you can see the historic walls. Breakfast was very good; I... More

I'm giving this a 4 only because it's very pricey but so is everything else in this town, so just realize that going in. We stayed in the tower with 3 people on a roll out and it was very comfortable. You essentially have 2 choices of locale in this town-either in the old city about halfway up the hill... More

Beautiful old fashioned hotel right by the lake (great for an early morning run past the FIFA HQ and the Olympic buildings) nice rooms in an old style but cool quite trendy bar downstairs and quite a posh restaurant (expensive!) Friendly staff. Quite expensive but can get business rates. Easy to walk into town. Would use it again
