Luckily I am a woman because it wasn't until I stayed there that I knew. It is a great spot, really comfortable and reasonably priced for Switzerland. The breakfast is basic but sufficient and I loved my room. In a pretty central spot if you want to visit the town and the Lake. No lifts and quite a few stairs,...

Loved the feel of the Guesthouse and the opportunity to stay in a women only spot right next to the train station. Everything worked perfectly, and I felt well-looked after/provided for. Highly recommend!

The room was very clean with a great view of beautiful buildings and a mountain in the distance. I was not troubled with noise from the trains (note...

Finding budget accomodation in Lausanne is not easy but if you're a woman you're in luck with the Guesthouse Bienvenue providing a clean and comfortable alternative in the heart of the city. Most guests are students on long-term residency, but short term rooms are available at amazingly reasonable prices (for Lausanne). The rooms are spotless with TVs and internet access....
