“Nice, but maybe not 100% suitable for business trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is a charming little place, with a quirky B&B feel to it, and really well located in the centre of Lausanne, a step away from the Rippone metro station (although: not an area suitable for HIGH HEELS!)

The rooms are stylishly decorated, and in top condition, and there is also a kettle with coffee & tea.

The staff downstairs is really friendly, and the food they serve is very nice!

There is one issue, however, that makes the hotel unsuitable for a certain kind of business travel: there is no table in the room, so if you're on business and need to finish work at night, you are either downstairs in the restaurant (maybe not ideal) or balancing your laptop on your knees on the bed :-/

I was told none of the rooms have tables in them.

But for personal trips to Lausanne, I do recommend it!

The star rating is for BUSINESS TRIPS, for personal trips I would rate it higher.

Room Tip: My room was way at the back, which looks over a small court yard where sounds echo around. In summer...

This small hotel offers a big meal. ;)
I was walking around trying to found something to eat in Lausanne when everything are closed we found this little place open. So we try to find a table outside on the terrace. I don't speak French, but a girl friend of mine speak Italian. Luckily all the waiters speak Italian in the restaurant. I order the signature burger from the restaurant and my friend ordered mix salad with grilled chicken.
I look at the other tables, I kind of intimidated in a good way, because they served food in a big plate, and obviously a big portion of meal as well... Hmmm I kinda looking forward to it, as we extremely hungry at that time.
When the food arrived they served my burger on a hot plate, the waiter advised me to be careful. So I took a bite on the burger and it taste excellent. My friend also said the salad was also excellent. So in the end we were happy we found that place. And I paid the amount of CHF 25 for the burger, as I think it's still reasonable price for Switzerland .
