“As good as ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We stayed twice, once on our way to th Bernese Oberland and once on the way back.
We have also stayed before. Our room was lovely, modern, very clean with a comfortable bed, couch and arm chair, and this time the television included BBC and ITV! Amazing. We had a pleasant breakfast.
On the way back we were allocated room 14. This was a disappointment as the furniture seemed a bit old fashioned and the TV was an old style. We asked for room 26 and immediately were given this room, so all was well.
We like the Elite. It is clean, efficiently run and always welcoming.

Room Tip: Go for room 26 or any of the equivalent rooms.

We stayed in a tripple room at the Elite hotel. The location of the hotel was very central, just a short walk from the train station, but still quiet. From our room on 4th floor we had a veiw over beautiful residential street. The interior of the hotel and furniture was probably not the most recent fasion but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great (nice breafast room, too!) and the staff was very kind and helpfull. If we come back to Lausanne we would definitely stay at the Elite hotel again!

I went to visit my son who was working in Lausanne on a last minute air fare sale. When I looked for rooms all the places I'd been dreaming about were full. Booking.com,( the best site ever), kept telling me to change my dates. The Elite popped up and I booked it thinking I could cancel when something better opened. Nothing did. I went looking by foot from the train station and voila, up the hill and down a side street there is this oasis. The Elite is a classy little Hotel, centrally located, a little three star gem for a city visit. It is very clean, well managed and in a nice neighborhood. The breakfast and breakfast room were pleasant and gracious. My room was a little compartment with no view and no air conditioning, the TV was small and there was some noise at night. Even so, it was just a really pleasant place to stay and enjoy the city, easy to take the train to Vevey and Montreaux. I probably wouldn't choose it for a family with children, but definitely would recommend for budget conscious travelers who want a good hotel in Laussane.

An uphill walk from train station, but not bad at all. Great service. Smaller room, but perfectly functional. For no additional cost, we were given a separate 'single man's' room for our 16 year old son which was smaller but included his own bathroom and shower. Perfect! Definitely recommend this location.

This hotel worked well for us, particularly since we were in Lausanne only two nights and were traveling in and out of town by train. Our triple was spacious, with a separate bedroom for our 16-year-old daughter. We were there on a weekend, so I was a bit concerned about noise issues mentioned in other reviews, but we had no problems, maybe because it was rainy. No air conditioning but we didn't need it. We had the windows open at night and enjoyed the fresh air. We used the free public transit pass a lot since the city is so vertical.

Hotel Elite is a very well run hotel, with comfortable rooms, clean and in a good location near the main station and attractions of Lausanne. Staff assistance does vary from efficient to very assisting. Breakfast was included and consists of a typical European style meal. Would recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure. Note that internet is charged at a high charge which is consistent with costs of being in Lausanne

Stayed at Hotel Elite for 3 nights with a triple room. Room was quite large by European standard and had a separate room for the third bed and a nice sitting area. Staff service was mixed with excellent service from the day manager and average service from the night manager. Finding this hotel by car was not easy even after googling the direction and having the detailed local area printed out. Finding/walknig to this hotel from the train station is easy.
