My wife and I (in our 50s) stayed in Hotel Elite for two nights, mid-week. It is a five minute walk (uphill!) from the train station. A further five minutes uphill will take you to the heart of Lausanne. The hotel is comfortable, affordable and clean. An old-fashioned elevator took us to our second-floor room overlooking a private garden on... More

It's a pity that Trip adviser do not a "good" rating as going from average to very good leaves out a lot of places. The Hotel Elite is one such place. Good, clean, and friendly service. An excellent location only five minutes walk from the station and not more then ten minutes from the "old" town. It is situated on... More

Comfortable, hotel minutes from train station. I stayed in single room which was very small but clean and adequate for one. Only downside was shower however it did the job. Tea/coffee making facilities would have been nice. You can purchase drinks at reception but I was not aware until checking out. Mini bar prices were ok. Breakfast was good and... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hotel Elite in late March. The trudge up from the train station is 'invigorating,' to say the least--but no more than you're going to do wherever you go in this vertical city. (Don't go too far--it's on a cross street only halfway up the hill, not at the top.) Every hotel... More

Very good service, Very good room. The cleaning staff are very professional. The quality of the room in details can be a four star hotel room. It is a pity that Lausanne is not as safe as before. The police did nothing.

As described by others, this is a great spot after you get off at the rail station. Then, you climb a steep hill to get to the hotel. After awhile the hill is not as bad as you first thought. And, the exercise is good for you. Beds are very comfortable. The comforter is very welcome on a cold night.... More

We loved this hotel. It was very convenient (just a five minute uphill walk from the main train station) and a very short distance to the metro. It has large rooms with big bathrooms and ours had a veranda. We extend our stay rather than traveling to Geneva for our flight out. We would definitely stay there again and highly... More

A traditional hotel, you may say it is not fashion but it is a taste of classic. Anyway, the hotel is clean and tidy. We were arranged a room on the 3rd floor, it has a beautiful view from my room. Although I could not see the lake, but can see a beautiful sky. It's great that there is air-con... More

My family were guests of the Elite Hotel in Lausanne for one night on August 5th , 2013. I understood that the hotel was not on the lake shore, but had no idea it was a 25 minute walk down a very steep hill. Granted, there is bus service down to the water's edge, but the hotel is located in... More

A good option for exploring Lausanne and the surrounding area. Small and intimate within an easy walk from the train station. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Stayed three nights with family in two rooms. Breakfast a bit thin - not much fresh fruit, but quite decent.
