Stayed here for a mid week business trip. It's a fine old fashioned hotel with amusingly chintzy decoration and a good location. What irritated me most was the 10CHF charge to borrow an iron. Not a deposit - an actual charge. Not come across that before and my colleagues and I all agreed to wear creased shirts as a sign... More

I travel often to Lausanne on business and this time I tried Carlton Hotel. Terrible is to say the least. Here are my reasons 1. Dingy rooms, not worth 200-250 euro. Alpha Palmers has better rooms at reasonable rates. 2. No room service 3. They had booked entire restaurant for a group without informing the guests. By the time I... More

The conference chose this hotel, and I was pleased to be right next to the Metro. The reception and housekeeping staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful, and forgiving of my inability to speak French. They accommodated my requests for a top sheet (it was much too hot for a duvet) and extra pillows, and they greeted me by name every... More

Well located hotel with friendly staff. Wifi wasn't working when we stayed but the receptionist looked up where we could find a restaurant we had booked, and also told us how to get up to the lac du sauvebelin. Metro station is right next door so you can get to the lakeside, the station or the town centre in minutes.... More

This hotel is very conveniently situated right next to a metro stop. 5 minutes walk to the lake, 10 minutes walk to train station. Friendly and well informed staff. Wifi works well. Room lighting is poor and does not lend itself to working at night. Very limited cupboard space. Shower is in the bath with shower curtain which does not... More

Was my first time in the hotel. Hotel was fully renovated and refurnished. Easy access from the station and the hotel is next to the Metro, 2 stops only from the train station. Check-in was a bit slow because they take the time to explain the hotel services. Services and hospitality are great with qualified people always ready to please... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in April 2015. The hotel is located just 10 minutes walk from the lake front at Ouchy and Lausanne central station, but is directly next to a metro station. The room was a good size, and the bathroom was well equipped (heated towels!!). We didn't have much of a view (just... More

Very pleasant hotel, well placed not far from the lake. Great service! Each and every employee is willing to help immediately for any need. Rooms are small but very well furnished and decorated. My room had a bit of a smell but nothing disturbing. The bathroom is very well equipped and functional except the shower. The shower was badly set-up,... More

Located next to the Delices Metro station only two stops from Lausanne Gare which is the main station and two stops from Ouchy near the riverside. The rooms were small but well equipped with a nice balcony. Quaintly decorated in traditional style. Desk staff helpful beyond the call of duty specially Nicholas. No meal options but eat.ch provides a host... More
