Hotel is just right next to the Delices metro. Very convenient. Clean and comfortable room. Free wifi. Spotless bathroom. Friendly receptionist. He told us he is new to the town. Free metro card! Overall, I would recommend this hotel. I didn't try the breakfast as it was quite expensive 20chf. You can buy some pastries at Tea-Room le Romantica (Grancy... More

Following our rather disappointing stay back in December 2013, we stayed again for two nights at Nash Carlton at the beginning of February 2014. Once again, we did our booking with very little anticipation through a major Internet travel agency. While we did not get such a good price deal as last time, I have seen a strong improvement in...

very nice quiet place in the city for a relaxed drink and cigar break in this space of the hotel Carlton. Staff fussing in a natural and very pleasant surroundings. Highly recommended for type of occasion

The hotel is very close to the subway station. The reception is very charming. The rooms are rather old fashioned and should see some renovation, as the carpets are very used and the beds too soft. The breakfast buffet is poor compared to the price of the room.

We have visited Lausanne many times over the past 25 years and somehow we missed this jewel tucked away on Avenue de Cour which could not be in a better location. It was quiet, very clean and had a welcoming and helpful staff. This hotel is steps away from the Metro and just 2 blocks above Ouchy which is on... More

A short metro ride from the train station and a 15 minute walk from the location this hotel is in an accessible but not prime location. The rooms and hotel were fine but you could tell that at one point they were likely grand. Still a good choice for a mid-range budget.

Strangely inefficient reservation system, confirming price higher than agreed over the phone. Great location. Warm welcome initially but later, with no milk in bedroom for tea despite it being requested and promised, reception suggested we go down to collect! Ditto wifi codes. Room (executive) cramped and the double bed was two beds pushed together. Small TV screen and no English... More

This is a typical French type hotel. Everything is small and quaint. It was very close to the Metro and within walking distance of numerous restaurants as well as Lake Geneva. We had to laugh at the elevator being only 2.5 ft by 3.5ft. The staff was very friendly, especially considering we did not speak French. The bed that we... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 1 night for a little weekend getaway. First of all, the location was quite nice for it being right next to a Metro station and only a 10-min walk to the lakeside. However, my experience here was not as expected. The first thing that disappointed me was the the attitude of the receptionist.... More
