“Open to improvements: I hope!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Being often in Lausanne for business, I wanted to give a try to a new hotel, so I decided to stay at the Agora Swiss. Already by the reservation made over the phone, the receptionist advice me of undergoing works and she also specify that because of that the breakfast would be on the house. This property is close to the train station ( 5 mins walking tops) but in a quite position: at the time no car park was available and even in the future it will be an “open to the public” service so that you can’t reserve a place. The building has a new and modern look for Lausanne where many mountains subjects are into the façade, the rooms and the common areas. Not all the floors where open as this was the second week of life of this new place.
My room was on the small side but nicely appointed including a minibar, flat TV and free Wi-Fi. 90% of the floors are covered with carpets. The bathroom has the open space concept with only 1 door dividing the WC/shower unit from the main room. What I didn’t like on the other hand was the dust around in every corner: from the desk to the night table, from the shower floor to the wardrobe.
The breakfast room is yes on the top floor giving a great view of the lake but the room itself is not finished (has a matter of fact a carpenter was working on a door when I had my breakfast and the pipelines/wires are visible under the wall). Again dust is everywhere and the food quality was at the very limit (breakfast time with no croissants?? Yogurt and butter held in a non-refrigerated plate?? Fruits from the can??).
At this time my judgment could only be “insufficient” definitely not a 4 stars hotel but considering this is a very new place looking to take off, I will a new try in the future.
To me it only looks like that the management is looking to cash money as soon as they can even if the property is not ready yet: sorry but the undergoing works and dust around make me think of a bad hygiene level.
