2nd time at this hotel (within 3mt) and its still not satisying. I had to change one room as it smelled strongly. Also there is always something broken with the infrastructure. The sauna is a mess: the door does not close the room so with a gap of 5cm at the floor and top there is no possibility for warm... More

We spent 5 days there. The receptionists are not that proactive, but they helped us whenever we needed. Swiss hotels, including this one, give you a day pass to travel around Lausanne and also around close cities (including some of the region of Lavaux). The location is awesome, very close to the subway. It's not that close to the gare,... More

Pros: - Location is central, and literally facing the metro stop Bessieres, which is 2 stops from Lausanne train station. It is also mn walk from the rue du Bourg, which is one of the main retail street of Lausanne. Be careful though as Lausanne is built on hills, and the hotel is up one hill. - the hotel has... More

Too hot in room to leave windows closed, but then too noisy outside to sleep; therefore, we all were unable to sleep. Pillows were too substance-less as well, and comforters too heavy for the hot weather. Other than that, the rooms were lovely and staff very kind. But it is important to get a good rest...

Great location, great stuff, big and comfortable enough room, small nice bar next to the reception gives perfect start for your stay. Only disadvantage is garage/parking space which is more than 350 m from the hotel and there is not much space in front of the hotel to "play" with luggage

Ive heard some negative words about the hotel staff but when I stayed there they were nice and helpful. The hotel itself was well situated close to the metro station, room was pleasant and clean. This hotel is a good value for the money I paid plus we were given a transport card for the city. I have also seen... More

Good location (central) a lot of restaurants and shopping, 3 steps away from the metro station which is very practical especially that the hotel offered transportation pass for the whole period of my stay. The staff are just ok! The desig is very average (any how it's a matter of taste), the room is quite small, the bed is comfortable,... More

Nice hotel that is right in the centre of Lausanne. Good value for money and very friendly reception staff. I would recommend for a city stay! We had a very nice room, but didn't try the wine bar, but it looked very nice. Transport card for he city is a bonus.

The hotel is clean but everything else doesn't seem to make it. There is no AC and the first couple of days the room was very warm and uncomfortable. Facing the afternoon sun didn't help. On our last night we were moved to another room due to plumbing problems, which turned out to be a better cooler room. The breakfasts... More
