Oh a good note, the staff was friendly and truly deserves a star just for them BUT: - Gym is literally a small room with 1 running track and floor mats. That's it - Laundry is located in another building, underground in some office , and yeah, there is only one machine and 1 dryer for the whole hotel and some other people to use -if you are in a rush, it is impossible to find someone, as people are always running around The positioning of the hotel with"fitness facilities" and fancy cafe is a total, scam I might say...

Booked a room with a sofa bed, but this was not provided. Then charged me CHF80 a night to provide a replacement bed - but didn't tell me about the cost until checkout. Aside from the misleading advertising, at that price the place is in no way worth it. That said, the location is nice and the staff were friendly - up until checkout.

Hello again Dan, We understand your disappointment as you have made it quite clear in all possible booking channel reviews :) We are very sorry for what happened--it was a miscommunication on our part. We would like to clarify again that we charged you the CHF 80 not for the extra beds-- it was for the extra child which is CHF 40 per child and you had 2 children with you. This makes quite the difference because you stated that we charged you for the beds. This means that, even if, hypothetically, your 2 kids slept on the same bed as you, the extra charges would still apply. The hotel rates are based on a per head basis. This is an important distinction we would like to point out. Simply put, you booked and paid for a room for 2 persons but brought 4. Yes, the room has enough space for 4 guests but we would still charge for the extra 2 guests. This extra guest policy is quite common not just in Switzerland but the rest of the world as well. All rates on booking.com are for 2 persons and any other guest beyond that qualifies as "extra guest". It pains us to be called out like this when we did not intentionally mislead you nor did we even make an advertisement. We made a mistake of assuming you had read the hotel policy on booking.com when you made the reservation. When you were checking out, we suggested to discuss the issue with booking.com customer service to sort it out. This was indeed a learning experience for us to be more vigilant in keeping guests well informed and never making assumptions :) We sincerely wish you more pleasant experiences in the future. Safe travels!

We stayed at 46A for 10 days in the king suite! I cannot praise the staff enough on how each of the staff goes above and beyond to ensure the stay feels like home! The cleanliness is fantastic, the reception so accommodating, the restaurant food, buffet amazing food and the rooms so comfortable! The beds and sofa and linen was so comfortable this really is a place away from home as they advertise!! The little extra touches were so lovely! a bowl of fruit with a chocolate and personalised note, what we asked for they certainly did accommodate! The location to public transport, shops, swimming pool are in a few minutes and the Quietness or the rooms is excellent!! I would highly recommend 46A hotel for short or long stays and thank all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable! Definitely a home away from home! The best stay!!

Stayed there only for one night. I was expecting a hotel, but it's a largely unstaffed apart-hotel. No one was present in the evening. I had to call to be given a code to open a box to get my room key. Then I had to find the room by myself. The restaurant was closed at that time (around 8pm). Room was gloomy. Lighting was poor. The ambiance is the room was a bit sinister. My room was on the ground floor, so people were walking by on the path close by. The bed was a bit hard. Instructions left in the room are somewhat off-putting ("wash your dishes or else pay"). No one was there in the morning either when I left (around 7:30 am). I did not try breakfast. There is a but stop 50m away, but note that does not go to EPFL. All in all, it was reasonably cheap, clean, convenient, but they are much nicer hotels right in the city center. So ok if the kitchen is what you need or if you are planning daytrips outside Lausanne . Else, I would recommend a hotel closer to the center.

The Hotel 46a is a very unassuming, nontraditional hotel located near major business offices and close to Lac Léman. My colleague and I chose it primarily because it was within walking distance of our client and is designed for extended visits - all the rooms have fully equipped kitchens. What we didn't expect was a gourmet restaurant on the property that would deliver reasonably-priced meals to your refrigerator for you to have at your convenience. We dined this way nearly every night and the food was outstanding! It may not be the place for travelers who are used to full-service hotels, but for us it was perfect!
