It is a great and positive change for this hotel. Situated next to a metro station. very easy access. not far from the lake also- 10 mn walk or 4 minutes ride with the metro. It has nIce rooms. True because of its history, some rooms are smaller than the usual Hotel group' room. But all of them been restructured... More

Have recently stayed for 4 nights in this small, quiet but excellent hotel. All rooms are air conditioned and very quiet, couldn't hear any other noises from other rooms or outside. My room had a balcony with a view over Lake Geneva and onto Evian in France. The room wasn't massive but for 1 or 2 it is ok. The... More

I felt very comfortable in this hotel. I haven't been in Lausanne in years and we had a great time and we went all over Switzerland by car. I am a fan of Lausanne & I went to school there 30 years ago and I love Ouchy right next to Pully. Very calm location. i highly recomend it! Make sure... More

Not a huge fan of Lausanne or Switzerland for that matter but Lausanne in particular has limited options between five star (Beu Rivage and Palace) and two star dumps. The Carlton is extremely comfortable, accommodating and convenient. Located right outside the metro station, across the street from a bus stop and with on site parking, the access is as good...

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
