The hotel is nicely located in the pedestrian-only center of town very close to a major metro station. Although I took a cab from the station to get there (it could could drop me off with my bag at the back door), once I was oriented, it was easy enough to get to the station (and Geneva airport) by metro...

This hotel is convenient to the city center and is reasonably priced for what it offers. The owner speaks excellent English and is very helpful. Breakfasts are fine. The shower and elevator are somewhat small. It is used a lot by business people coming to Lausanne. We recommend it unless you are really looking for luxury.

We stayed two nights at Hotel Regina at the tail end of our trip. We arrived in Lausanne by train, and the hotel would be quite the uphill climb on foot, so I highly recommend using the métro. If you exit at the Lausanne-Flon stop, take the elevator to the top floor and it will put you on a pedestrian... More

I stayed at the hotel Regina for one night. ROOMS: The furniture is very old-fashioned (in my point of view). My bathroom had obviously been renovated recently and was very modern. Room and bathroom were very clean! It was quiet despite the central location, but I could hear my neighbours talking. LOCATION: Perfect! In the middle of Lausanne's old town... More

Arrival in Lausanne is normally by rail or car. If by rail, take the tram (located just across of the rail station) up the hill one stop to the upper city. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from there (pick up a map of the city at the rail station as the hotel is not on a major street... More

The Hotel Regina is a great find in Lausanne. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are fine, as is the breakfast. The location is unbeatable. Short walk to the Metro, which gets you anywhere you want to go, and easy access to Lausanne Gare, which will take you all over the Swiss Riviera.

This is a lovely little hotel right in the pedestranised centre of the old town. We arrived by train so parking was not an issue. Our room was extremely clean and quiet, had a good sized and again scrupulously clean bathroom and a view of the Cathedral. It was a five minute walk - downhill - to the Flon metro... More

It's location is the very near center of the city and very close to Ouchy where you can access the lake and boat deck. It's not beside the road so you need to ask the local people when you don't have a map. The hotel gave us a free transportation pass during the stay and guests can use the near... More

Unpretentious and genuinely comfortable small hotel. Very nice compact room with high quality fittings. Functional if small bathroom, but I have seen a lot smaller. Breakfast is typical continental style buffet. Staff are friendly and efficient. Very clean, as you would expect. My room on inner side was very quiet. Location is excellent, in middle of the car-free old town... More

The hotel is charming, exceptionally clean and the rooms are very nice. When we were there it was very hot. Our room had a one speed fan, but it was difficult to sleep due to the heat and no circulation. The breakfast is lovely and the staff are terrific, with great suggestions for day trips.
