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

Just had one night here. Very convenient hotel for the station. The remote intercom reception worked promptly and efficiently for me. Room was nicely furnished. Bed comfortable. Nice to be given more than one pillow. Great to have a kettle - something that seems quite rare in Europe. English TV channels. Would recommend.

A remote reception doesn't really work if it is not manned. I arrived about 5pm to check in before going to a business dinner. No-one answered and I was waiting outside for about 15 minutes.
