“Good and cheap place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

It seems to be the cheapest hotel in Lausanne, though it's a very pleasant place to spans some days. It's extremely clean, rooms are comfortable, and personnel very kind and helpful.
It's just a few steps from the city center and the cathedral, and they provide free transit cards for who pays city taxes. If I'd have to visit again Lausanne, for sure I'll come back here.

Was looking for hotel close to Laussane railway station and this turned out to be value for money. The faciltiies are ok, Shared facilites were clean..Receptionist was quite helpful and gave me free pass for local travel..and also arranged to open my wine bottle from nearby hotel as wine bottle opener was not available in the hotel..

The hotel is very well located, in the city center of Lausanne and really close to a subway station, the Catedral and the old town. We have stayed in a double room, the furniture was ok, the bathroom also, but the staff were very helpful and people were really nice! Internet worked really well! And they will also provided us a free public transport pass, really helpful in Lausanne, that is a very vertical city!

Although the hotel seems old and crammed but it has all the convenience we needed. The staff were helpful and assisted us with car park given limited space in Switzerland in general for parking.

The location is convenient and we could walk to many places though a free local public transport pass was provided by the hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Four of us stayed in this hotel in a quad. We were not sure what to expect, but the room was large and very spacious. It had two twins and double. The room was clean and simple, furnished IKEA like. It also had a small kitchen area with a refrigerator and sink, which was great, since we could then buy some food and keep it in the room. I believe each floor also has an extra toilet in the hallway which is convenient. On the top floor, there is an additional shared shower as well.

The beds were firm and comfortable, and the bathroom was small, but clean.

As for location, it is fairly central, but located towards the top of the hill. You can take a metro up to avoid the trek (two stops from the train station), or walk 10-15 minutes. Shops and restaurants are very close by. If you are carrying a lot of luggage, it is a bit more inconvenient than staying right by the train station since you have to switch to the tram, but everything is quite efficient.

One tip - if you get the swiss rail pass, it will save you a ton of money. Basically all transportation, including local, is included, and will get you discounts or free on all museums.

Overall, the place was a bargain for the price we paid, and I would highly recommend. Its one of the best values we had while in Switzerland!
