The hostel is beautiful, with views of the mountains and lake, very close to the train station. I'm staying in a 4 bed mixed dorm, which luckily faces away from the train station, so it is quiet. The beds are comfy, and you can have a decent night's sleep, which is always a bonus. It is the cleanest hostel I...

I was only there for one night but I was very comfortable and very happy with my accommodation. My room was a double with a private bathroom across the hall. Both were presented very well, tidy and attractive. My room had an incredible view of Lake Geneva, and the location of the guest house was ideal for the train station,...

My wife and I stayed at the Guesthouse for four nights during a visit to Lausanne. We had a double room with private bath on the fourth floor. Traipsing across the hall to the bath took some practice, but it worked. Location was handy to train station, bus, metro, restaurants and tea shop. The Lausanne Pass we got when we...

It's fantastic for me when I stay here. I stay for one night in the Double Room with Private Bathroom. I don't think guesthouse will be great like this place. The room is not small, but not too big. You can see the view of lake Geneva from your balcony. The big bathroom is so clean. Anyway, the floor made...

Located a very short walk from the main train station. View from the window of Lake Geneve which is also a short walk away. The city centre is on the other side of the train line, but also very close. Check in was easy and efficient, no food options. Bathroom was shared with another room. The room was clean and...

The hotel is a located in an average area but it is a lovely, quite short walk to the lake. It features a great view of the mountains and lake and has a nice little garden underneath. The bedroom was quite basic and the private bathroom for our room was across the hall but they were both comfortable, the bedroom...

Can't believe this is not a hotel as the facilities are of a superior quality. This was by far the best place we stayed at on our trip to switzerland. I will recommend hands down over any hotel in laussane. Its a 2 min walk from the city centre and the view from the rooms is worth the trip all...

Dear Guest, I'm really sad to read your comment and would like to express my deepest apologies for the rude treatment you received from one of our colleagues. It was unacceptable for him to speak to you in an impatient way, even if I know this day was very stressful for him. He has been disciplined and will lose his...
