The place is reasonably clean, and the rooms are good sized. The bed's too soft. It's shocking how stingy this hotel is. It's staff not nice, instead of being friendly the second you and make you feel bad. no free tea or coffee. no shampoo or hand soap. Just a all purpose liquid soap. Room has no closet, only shelves. Not enough electricity sockets. Instead of friendly it's sour. Instead of generous, its stingy.

I did not have a good experience at the hotel. Thins walls and ceilings, so I can hear the person in the room next to me walking; when they try to plug something into the electrical outlet, it sounds like there is a rat in my wall. The "hotel" is just one floor of an apartment building. There is no thermostat in the room at all - if you are too hot or too cold, well, too bad. They charge you 10 CHF if you want to use an iron. No kettles / no coffee maker -- if you want a hot drink you have to go to the lobby to pay. Breakfast isn't in the hotel - it's a restaurant next door. I'm spending nearly 200 CHF a night and I expected better.

Located at the EPFL metro station. Easy check-in, clean, simple, spacious room. Breakfast in restaurant at same complex. If room faces metro station, can be a bit loud if window left open. Covenient if you need to be near the EPFL or UNIL universities or the SwissTech Convention Center. A bit expensive for what you get, but all of Switzerland is expensive. Basically feels like very nice dorm room as a clean and basic room. Fit my needs.

This hotel is on the EPFL campus in Ecublens (near Lausanne) and nearly next to the Swiss Convention centre and several shops, with an entrance next to the tracksof the metro station EPFL. Even so , the rooms are quiet. There is a breakfast place, whcih is OK and the rooms are functional. In short it is a very convenient place to stay if you do not like a commute and do not want to be limited when to return to yr hotel

This was an excellent find based on a tight budget. It was 20 minutes away from the town center but easily accessible by Metro (station right below). The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. They give you passes for the metro on check in. There's a couple of places to eat on the metro station. I definitely recommend!
