Having no reception was fine, but the stay here made me realise I prefer hotels with a reception, for security reasons and for having someone to ask questions/directions. You can call the remote staff by telephone but it's not the same as face-to-face in my view. We ended up going to the sister hotel nearby, where the reception staff were... More

There is no reception at this hotel. You have to push the buzzer and then they open the door and then you'll have to do a live Skype chat. There is no front entrance you have to go down an alley to get to the front door. This place is very dated. The television is very small. Elevator is only... More

I have visited for a business trip and this is one of the cheap and best hotel. Strongly recommend for short stay. Hotel location near to railway station and park. This is wonderful location. Interior was moderate and wifi may not reach all places. First time I have seen remote access room assistance. NICE

I did not expect that this hotel is a few minutes away from the metro and train station. There is a bus stop that's 2 minutes away from the hotel which is also very convenient. It was easy to get around even if we had luggages. Even if we had to check jn remotely, everything was smooth and straightforward. We... More

Well located hotel within 400 metre of train station in quiet area. Hotel has a delocalised desk however this was not a problem with check in going smoothly.

Expensive for what it is. Big clean room. Decor a bit sad. Quiet. The croissants are left by the front door, not the door to your room! I ended up paying 18 francs for a very poor breakfast at the sister hotel, Hotel a la Gare - definitely NOT worth it.

We're a family of 4 (kids aged 3 and 18 months), and chose this hotel due to location close to the train station and relatively cheap cost of a room, at least compared to other available options in Lausanne. Judging by the website photo we weren't expecting the room to be anything special, however when we arrived we were pleasantly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located right next to Lausanne main train station, Hotel du Boulevard is a charming 19th century building, typical of classic Lausanne architecture.

Particularly adapted to mid- to long-term stays (suites with kitchenettes), the hotel reception desk is managed remotely 24/7 and a concierge service is proposed to clients who book their room at least 2 days before arrival. ... more   less
