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.

I stayed - for a week, in May 2014) - in this hotel. This was my 4th stay in the same hotel. I chose this hotel for it's location - in the middle of Lausanne's hustle and bustle, next to bus station, and 3 minutes walk to the Metro station. Room is small but comfortable, nice Wi-Fi, and good breakfast... More

I stayed for several days on two separate occasions at the Hotel Regina in Lausanne. Conveniently located a few minutes away from the Flon Metro station, it is a no frills hotel in the old part of the city. The rooms are small but clean. The beds are firm and comfortable. The bathrooms are pretty tiny but sufficient. There is... More

Hotel Regina is an excellent hotel in the heart of beautiful Lausanne. The rooms are spacious, quiet and very clean. Michael is a gracious and helpful host. We'd stay there again and recommend it highly.

We loved this little hotel. For Lausanne prices it was excellent value, although as far as I could see if you need easy accessibility from your car it might not be ideal (on a pedestrian street although apparently there is a possibility to drive there in order to drop off). Right in the centre of town, but not walking distance... More
