The room was clean and the hotel has a wonderful location, especially in Winter when you want to be close to the city center and not to the lake. Moreover it is near to the station (three minutes walk), but in an upper position. The staff was nice and price worth it.

This hotel is located in a really good location!! In a quiet street, very close to the main station, few minutes walk from the old city, and only 20 minutes walk from the lake. The hotel provides a free ticket for the public transportation. The hotel has private parking spots, free of charge. The breakfast was good, the staff were... More

We found this Hotel to be charming with a wonderful breakfast included. The lady serving the breakfast was always with a smile and our tea ready. All the service in this hotel rated an a+. It was close to the train station and walking distance to the water. We would definitely stay there again.

First time visitors to Lausanne and Hotel Elite was an ideal base to explore the city. Staff were always friendly and helpful.The room was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable, we even had a balcony to sit and relax on after a days sightseeing.

I stayed at the Elite for four nights in September. It is, as the title notes, well located, and for a budget traveler as good a deal as you can get in expensive Switzerland. Had I 'm druthers, (and more money) I'd have stayed at a place in Ouchy, the most beautiful part of the city. But the Elite is... More

Near the station across the main drag and up a steep 10 minute slope or 60 or so steps. Great view of the lake and distant mountains on the street side and very quiet. Comfortable bed and very helpful staff.

Nice hotel in station area of Lausanne. In quiet side street. Has its own free car parking spots which is a bonus. Nice breakfast though little that's hot cooked other than boiled eggs. Lift is a bit dodgy and 2 person maximum. Old world decor yet it works as a theme. Views of the lake and mountains from our balcony... More

When you get off the train you cross the street and walk (no taxi will take you up this close to the station) straight up a 85 degree slope of cobblestone. No fun pulling a suitcase. The location is good to catch both the metro and the train. The room was nice and clean and well cared for. The bathtub... More

Best value for money! The location is just perfect: 3 mins on foot from the railroad station, 10-15 mins form the main city center spots. You will definitely enjoy the lake and mountains view. The rooms are not luxurious at all, but still they are clean, comfortable and kept in very good condition. The service is just perfect: very friendly,... More

An excellent, solid, traditional Swiss hotel with a warm welcome. If you arrive by train, leave the station on the Centre Ville side at the "A" end of the platforms. You will see some steps going straight up the hill in front of you. Go up them. A little further on from the top of the steps you will see... More
