We booked a stay for a trip to attend the world cup of hockey in Lausanne in May 2020. The only available rooms were under a non refundable rate which we accepted since we fully intended to go to the hockey tournament. The tournament was cancelled due to Covid-19 as was all travel from the US to Switzerland. We contacted the hotel and requested a refund due to the world circumstances which were beyond anyones control. The hotel was very firm that we would not receive a refund due to the purchased rate. They offered a year extension to use our reservation. We were only planning to go to Lausanne for the hockey tournament. I feel this hotel is putting its profits above the circumstances around Covid-19. Even with the complete shutdown of travel to Switzerland they are inflexible on giving us a refund.

Perfect location in the heart of the city. Just be aware that access with car up to the front of the hotel is difficult to find and risky (pedestrian area full of people) on Saturdays at least. You're better off parking the car in Parking du Centre and walking 5 min to the hotel. The daily cost of parking (with hotel voucher) is only 15 CHF. We got a really hearty welcome; the room was nice; and the breakfast, refreshing in a bright area. Strongly recommended.

A last minute trip to Lausanne and I decided to stay in this hotel, one street over from where I lived for 21 years. And I am really glad that I chose it. The first impression is the staff. The woman who checked me in was super friendly and helpful. When I got to my room I was impressed. Newly renovated, clean and modern with removable duvet covers and all white bedding which I prefer, and not those old fashioned bed spreads that 8 million people have touched. The mattress was super comfortable. There was a portable air conditioning unit but I prefer sleeping with the window open. It can be a noisy neighborhood but on a Sunday night it wasn't bad, plus with the virus there weren't many people walking around so I slept well. The only problem was that the shower leaked under the glass door onto the carpet a bit but I used the bathmat and a towel to sop it up. There should be a rubber gasket to block the space at the bottom of the shower door. Breakfast was included but I didn't take advantage of it.

We were originally booked to stay here at the end of May 2020. Due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our trip. Switzerland had closed their borders to outside travelers. We originally booked in January under a non-refundable rate and didn't think much of it. Fast forward to May and cancelling... We had booked 5 hotels across Switzerland with non-refundable rates and this hotel is the only one who wouldn't give us a refund. To make matters worse they refunded the couple we were traveling with, but not us. The Front Desk Supervisor, Marina Elena was very rude over e-mail while I was trying to communicate to her that we literally couldn't travel to Switzerland. We had originally chosen to stay here based on the good reviews, but I would never stay here based on their lack of consistent policy, rude behavior, and inability to follow the precedent set by other hotels in Switzerland. If you choose to stay here don't expect to be treated well. Waste of money and time.

Response from Nati Ramos, Directeur général at Hotel Des Voyageurs
Responded Jun 4, 2020
Mrs. Murphy, We are aware of the impact and the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, hospitality sector has been one of the more affected by situation. However, we want to do our best and offer the possibility to customers who, like you, have decided to book a non-refundable rate to use this payment as a deposit valid for 12 months from the date of the initial booking, for a booking for yourself, your friends or your family. In your case, as this proposal did not suit you, following your cancellation request, we sent you an invoice with the cancellation costs to transfer it to your travel insurance. We remain positive and hope that the situation will be resolved very soon for all of us. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones. Marina Elena | Front Desk Supervisor

I have stayed at this hotel just for 1 night. I liked very much the organisation of the rooms and the cleanliness. I didn't mind that my room (1 person) was small, it had everything I would need. The bed was very comfortable as well as the pillows. Breakfast was also very good. The location perfect. My only suggestion to add body cream in the amenities and maybe a pair of slippers is really not so important.
