This hotel is basic, but comfortable. Great location within easy walking distance from Flon and connectivity to public transport. Given how expensive things are in Swtizerland, this hotel was a great choice for us. Rooms are large and the bed is super comfy, but you won't get to enjoy it much. Management - please tell your housekeeping staff that there are guests here who go on vacation to relax and shouldn't be woken up by their yelling every morning. Housekeeping staff seem to be loud everywhere, but this group is the worst I have ever heard and show no respect for the comfort of the guests trying to relax in the morning. The hotel claims to have soundproof walls in their in-room brochure, but I beg to differ. Their noise level is simply unacceptable each morning.

If you're an early bird who will be out and about early each morning, this hotel will definitely suit your needs at a good price. If you want some peace and quiet in the mornings to soak in your vacation time, avoid this place unless housekeeping changes or are told by management to watch their yelling in the mornings.

Quality: The room is quite big, new and clean.
Price: Value for money.
Location: Just 5 minutes by bus from train station.
I have stayed some ibis in London, Switzerland, Austria ... I can say for certain this is the best.
I booked for only 75 Euro, this price I thought may be cheaper than a double ensuite in a hostel, but this is a very decent hotel.

The location is very central though definitely I would not walk around alone there at night. Lots of people offering you drugs but they don't harm you at all. You might have a problem with purse snatchers though. Everything in the hotel is as you expect from an Ibis (good sleep, clean and basic). For 15CHF, the breakfast is dismal so go outside to a bakery on Rue d'Ale (shopping street) for all the nearby bakeries. The service was very good there and we liked the free public transport ticket around Lausanne we received.

The hotel was about 3 bus stops away from the train station. Buses went there frequently. It was close to the old town, including the cathedral. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. Overall it’s a nice basic hotel.

This is either a modern Ibis or one that has been recently renovated. I was most impressed with the good sized room, comfortable double bed and stylish decor. It had a writing shelf and chair and a covered bench for seating. There was a hanging wardrobe.

The en-suite bathroom had a walk-in shower with all the usual features. One small feature I had never seen before was the small light on the hair dryer. It was on all the time but I did not notice until I got up in the middle of the night. It was a useful nightlight for a simple trip to the loo. I thought the towels were a bit thin but otherwise the bathroom suited the modest requirements of a bald, bearded man.

Breakfast was buffet style with sharp back up service. I was disappointed that there was only a choice of two cereals and no museli or anything similar.

Access is dead easy by public transport. Step out of the main station. Buy a short ride ticket from the machine and board a number 3 or 21 trolleybus. They both start from the station. Get off at St Roch stop, walk back a few metres downhill to the hotel. Simples.

Weekend rate was quite reasonable but weekday rate reflected typical high Swiss hotel costs.

Room Tip: No idea about different sizes. No special views from the hotel.

The hotel is located in central Lausanne. The rooms and breakfast/bar are average Ibis fare. There is lifts to all floors and a car park. The hotel is near to the main railway station and bus route 3 goes between the two.
