“Beautiful hotel, small, comfortable, with classic décor, and well placed in the beautiful city of Lausanne, the French R”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The staff is friendly.
This hotel is in a quiet residential area, right next to the metro station and can be reached directly by metro in the direction of Ouchy from the train station.
Rooms are small but beautifully appointed, comfortable, clean and well-maintained. Our rooms have a small but lovely balcony.
The breakfast was nice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

This hotel is right next to the metro station and can be reached directly by metro in the direction of Ouchy from the train station which is really convenient. The ramp from the metro was quite handy for the heavy luggage we were carrying. Most rooms have a small balcony and modern amenities like hair dryer, safe, mini bar and air conditioning but the view is not that great. Though advertised as ‘garden surrounded’, the hotel does not have much of a garden. The hotel is hopelessly understaffed and there is no help given for the luggage nor is there any room service. The person at the front desk is more or less in charge of running the hotel. Parking is available at a charge.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors with balcony are quieter

The Nash Carlton Hotel is ideal if you're a businessman visiting Lausanne. It's about ten minutes' walk from the main railway station, or two stops on the metro, midway between the station and the lake, in a quiet residential area. It's well-equipped, with spacious public areas and comfortable, clean and well-maintained rooms. Somewhat in the 'gorgeous' style of hotel decoration, rather than the modern minimalist, but not a bad example!

Note that It's not a lively part of town but there are a few restaurants a short walk away. The metro station is just one minute away so it's easy to get to the central part of town where the lights are brighter and restaurants and cafes abound.

Rooms are nice and clean. Nice little balcony. The people working there has, however, the standard "I'm too good for this job" attitude. Small parking space and costs 15 Euros. Internet is insanely expensive (>20 Euros for 1 day). Overall, service can be overlooked, and the hotel is well worth the price.

Just by the side of the subway ("Délices station), this is a great hotel in Lausanne. The room isn't big, but it's confortable, quiet and beautiful.
They don't have free wi-fi, but you can use internet for 30min if you ask them. As soon as you arrive, they'll give you a card to use all the transport in town.
Simple and nice breakfast.
I would surelly come back to this hotel

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a lovely boutique hotel a ten minute walk from the boardwalk of Lake Lausanne. At half the cost or less than the lakeside hotels, it's worth it to be just a tiny bit off the beaten path. The hotel feels fancy though it isn't priced that way. The rooms are small but beautifully appointed. The staff is eager to please and thoroughly knowledgeable about the area. The hotel door is a hundred feet from the Metro, which takes you up and down the backbone of the city for free. The management was very kind and didn't charge me for a day when I mis-booked, which I appreciated no end. I was a bit hesitant to book because of the mixed reviews, but found nothing lacking in our stay. . .except the bed. Hard as a rock. If you like a hard bed you're in luck. If you need a softer one, probably best to ask them what they can do for you in advance.

This hotel is in a good location right next to a metro stop but within walking distance of the main rail station.
The rooms were luxuriously decorated but there were annoying aspects not in line with the rating of the hotel: there was no iron, the mini bar was very weakly stocked, the kettle had to be plugged in in the bathroom which was awkward. The room had a lovely balcony.
Staff were friendly. The breakfast was nice.
No free wifi is a definite negative.
