Loved the feel of the Guesthouse and the opportunity to stay in a women only spot right next to the train station. Everything worked perfectly, and I felt well-looked after/provided for. Highly recommend!

This guesthouse, for women only, is barely a 5-minute walk from the train station (take tunnel to cross tracks and turn left on street). As such, although most rooms face the street side (and not the tracks side), the place can be a bit noisy. However, the number of trains diminishes at night and, with good earplugs, one can get...

Most guests are students on long-term residency, but short term rooms are available at amazingly reasonable prices (for Lausanne). The rooms are spotless with TVs and internet access.... More
