This hotel is more a student hotel and looking for a relatively cheap option. It's at least 20% cheaper than hotels in the center of Lausanne and it is noticeable. The breakfast price is very high for low quality of food that is offered. The location is not very practical if you like to walk to a restaurant, transport is... More

I stayed in this hotel twice and in general had a good experience. The room was clean and functional, and nothing fancy. The staffs are warm and helpful. It basically serves nearby university and companies. The drawback is that it is far away from the city center and has no easy access to good restaurants.

Does what it says on the tin. Convenient for access to EFPL and the hotel is therefore always busy. A decent work hotel that does the job. Rooms are clean and functional. Has a small gym and restaurant for an evening meal is fine. Wouldn't stay for leisure but for work it's ok.

I has stayed here twice with work and both times it did the job, comfortable bed, decent food and not too expensive (value is a difficult concept in Switzerland). The room is well laid out, but the laughing Chinese man in a dress, holding a watermelon art on the wall of most rooms is a little disturbing! This is not... More

Very nice Business Hotel next to the University of Lausanne (EPFL and UNIL). Its a functional hotel, new, nice furniture, comfortable beds, great breakfast, a Bar and Restaurant with a great terrasse, giving you in the summer a nice view on lake Geneva and the mountains. Its 10 minutes away from the Morges Railway station. Just take a cab, its... More

Really nice staff. Lovely room full of lots of innovative, clever design features. Great Art work. Nice restaurant with great cheeseburgers!! Would certainly go back. PS. Also walking distance from metro which was free and the stunning shores of Lake Geneva. PPS. The village of St Sulpice boasts the oldest church in French Switzerland (1100 ish) and contains one of...

I stayed here for one night for business in October. Location perfect for EPFL including the Rolex Learning Center. The campus and hotel are a quick metro or taxi journey from Lausanne so easily accessible. The lake is a 10 minute walk to the south with some great views. Check in was quick and easy and I was provided with... More

The hotel is outside of Lausanne (between L. and Morges) and also with public transport (Metro) good reachable. The rooms are rather big, quiet and with W-Lan. The employees were friendly and helpful. In the morning they have a shuttle service to the station. Breakfast was nice with a good variety.

The hotel is great for EPFL visits. It's modern, stylish and very clean. Not great for sharing a room with a colleague, as the bathroom is not separated by a door from the rest of the room (at least mine wasn't). The breakfast is a bit sparse, French standard, no good coffee was offered, but otherwise OK.

We've looked for a hotel near Lausanne where we can park our car and get to the city center with the metro, and found this lovely hotel. The hotel is located 7 min. walk from a metro station, near the university, and has a parking lot under it (or you can park for free close to the hotel when possible).... More
