I stayed 3 nights at the Starling. Seemed expensive for what you got -- new room but fairly small, poor quality TV, good bathroom, no drawers or cupboards for your things, no facilities to make tea or coffee in the room. The safe was useful -- large enough to fit my laptop in. Poor orientation of the buildings meant hardly... More

I stayed 5 nights at the brand new Starling Hotel at EPFL. The hotel is excellent. It is situated across the street from the university with access via a walking underpass. The facilities are brand new and give a hi-tech feel. The rooms are very comfortable. The in-room amenities include free (very fast) wi-fi, digital LCD with many options for... More

Swiss quality. Exceptionally clean. Beautiful view of lake and mountains if you ask for that type of room. Quiet, pristine setting. Modern, sleek, comfortable. 8 minute walk to Metro through the very young and cool EPFL campus. Skip the restaurant unless necessary and head to Lausanne for dinner. NOTE... This hotel is not close to the city but very accessible... More

Stayed there only for one night but that's the moment where you like to have everything in place. EPFL was closeby. Modern rooms, good shower, wireless internet without problems, breakfast, bistro, everything was there. Even the weather was ok but that's unfortunately not part of your booking.

We appreciate "value for money" so we did a little research before going up to Lausanne. We checked out several booking sites and found a good offer for Starling at EPFL. It was difficult to find the address Route Cantonale on our GPS so we were glad that the hotel confirmation gave us GPS coordinates. They were right on spot.... More

An excellent hotel, very close (a couple of minutes walk) to EPFL. Spacy, well decorated room. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Very efficient and helpful front-desk agents. Keep in mind that it is next to EPFL and University of Lausanne Campus, namely it is outside Lausanne. You have to plan for transportation. If you are travelling for business with colleagues,...

Rooms are small but confortable. Staff needs training! dinner was good but buffet lunch was not so great the hotel is located 15 min away from the city center and in the evening one can feel isolated!

The rooms here were amazing and the food/service levels were high. There is a metro connection close by to the main Lausanne station. This is a great hotel if you are visiting EPFL but if you are here to see Lausanne, I would not recommend this place based on location.

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in a superior room on business. The room was large and light, with a nice view over the Lake. The beds are quite comfortable, the bathroom fixtures modern and there is a nice large shower, and plenty of space for your clothes and personal effects, although the cupboards are completely open.

A great location for meetings or conferences at EPFL, all you would want for this type of hotel, though a tad pricey
