I'll be in Lausanne for one night in early October, traveling solo. Do I want to be in the City center or on the lake? This will be my last of 6 nights in Switzerland (and 4 in Bavaria), I will have just come from Lucerne (in a lakeside hotel) and will have also stayed in Zurich and Bern and will have visited many spots in between. A nice view and comfortable room are appealing in the event I'm exhausted at the end of this journey (which makes me think lake). But I would also like to be able to walk outside at night and have a choice of places to eat and stop for a drink (which makes me think city center). Final factor: I'm traveling by train.
If anyone has hotel recommendations that correspond with their opinions on this subject, I'd greatly appreciate them. About 4 star range.
thanks in advance!
