Overall very nice stay. Staff were all friendly. Parking available in front of property. Good location within walking distance of town. breakfast was wonderful. Only issue is the bathroom and shower are located outside of room. But this is a really minor issue.

Nice rooms, friendly staff with limited hours. Few plugs near bed. Breakfast is extra and not great. Poor coffee and croissants. Mostly processed cheese, with the exception of tiny Gruyere packages. You better go elsewhere for breakfast.

Dear Sir, First I would like to thank you for your comment on tripadvisor. It is always very helpful and interesting for us to know what our client like or unlike. Your comment about the breakfast is interesting because we are planning to change our coffee machine in order to have a better coffee, also for the cheese we plan... More

Their price per night is on a reasonable level for a very expensive city, and the main reason to choose this hotel. Beware that you need to request a code to get your key from the box after 22.00 (10 pm) as the front desk is unavailable then. The neighborhood is very quiet and you'll have no problems sleeping.

Good location. Close to metro. Shared bathroom and shower very very small. Couldn't leave luggage on the floor as there were ants crawling along the baseboards. Told reception about them in the morning and later that day it didn't look like anything was done. Reception was nice and kept our luggage till we could check in!

I agree with all the other reviews. Really good value location and very clean. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends they wanted value without all the trimmings. After all you only need a place to sleep as the rest your time your out soaking up the beauty and culture.

This hotel is very nice located, close to metro statiom and lausanne's places of interest. But other than that, it is very basic. The wifi is not working. Our room is ensuite, but the shower cubicle is too small. Mind you, that i am only 153 cm/44 kgs, even that the cubicle is too small for me. Guess that taking... More

Very nice hotel in a good location for a good price - specially for Switzerland. Of course we're not talking about a 5-Star Hotel here, but it's clean and nice renovated, staff is friendly and the location good. Would definitely stay here again if I'm in Lausanne.

It can be a challenge to find quality affordable accommodations in Switzerland. This place worked great for us. We don't mind sharing a bathroom down the hall. Rooms were comfy and quiet. They use budget furnishings which showed minor signs of wear, but this had no impact on the experience or comfort of our stay. We would absolutely stay here... More

Friendly staff. Parking place in front of the hotel. Breakfast choice between buffet (15 CHF) and croissant/orange juice/coffee (5 CHF). The hotel is quite well located, close to city centre (5min walks to place de la Riponne), on a very quiet street. It has a classical style with high ceilings, only the noise from the others rooms can be disturbing.
