You don't get your moneys worth here. They charged us with the city tax twice, there were insects crawling on the walls and the air conditioning was poor during one of the biggest heat waves that summer. But the lighting was good.

This hotel needed air conditioning during the heat wave when we visited Switzerland. The temperatures were above 90 degrees and the hotel was steaming hot, even with the windows open. The ceilings were too low in our room and we kept hitting our heads on it. The service was mediocre. We needed bath towels and they took too long to... More

The family room on the top floor is good-sized, but needs updating: the tile and other materials look very dated, including the kitchenette. Our biggest complaint is that we were there when it was quite warm and there was no Air Con and the windows don't provide much air circulation. It's also the only hotel we stayed at in CH... More

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. Also... More

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
