“high hopes”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

we were looking foreward staying in this hotel: I booked via booking.com a 850 CHF room for only 200 CHF! But guess what: there are no 850 CHF rooms... and indeed our room was of course - this is Switzerland- clean but at the same time dull, small, no view and above all very warm. Opening the window was no option as the noise of some equipment on the roof was quite disturbing.In a 4 star hotel one would expect decent airco but unfortunatly, the hotel turned the airco off for the season.
And ,by the way, the television didn't work either; I guess we just had bad luck.

Room Tip: do take a room with lake view and don't go on a warm autumn day

Staed here twice now on business - both times got a room with a balcony with the most stunning lake views.
Just 150m walk from station but its up a very steep hill thats hard to do with luggage! Nice easy walk though to the main shopping area and lots of bars and restaurants. Parking a bit pricey at CHF25 but there is sme street parking free 2000-0800 if youre there early enough.

Room Tip: I stayed on floor 2 and 6 where they seem to have bigger balconies outside - worth it to sit and hav...

We had a reserved room and I called to ask to arrive early, they were very accommodating. I mentioned we has a bad experience and were looking forward to a good experience. It was a wonderful experience. The room delightful, peaceful and comfortable,quite large and we had a very lovely view. The room device menu is not varied and the dining room pricey.

I stayed here only for one night for the city tour. Central location, good breakfast, garage quite expensive. For the money I think this is the best 4* you can get in Lausanne. I would stay again. It is not the new hotel for sure however it is very clean and rooms are quite nice.

The reason for my stay was business, in fact I spent a whole week in this hotel, so got to know it well! I could not say much about the location as didn't get chance to explore, but be warned its on top if a huge hill, wouldn't recommended lugging a case up it from the train station. My room was clean and practical as was only a single. But I had a lake view which blew me away. The bar man is very good, gets to know your drink, and promptly serves you. The food was of a high standard too. Worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

The Hotel is well located, rooms are spacious and very well cleaned. Unfortunately the service it was not always ****stars level and honestly after they charge you CHF 1780 for 2 bedrooms for 3 nights you expect an impeccable service but unfortunately it was not always the case.

Hotel is very nice. Lobby and common areas are well decorated and very clean. Rooms are nice, some however are quite small, some rooms even half twin beds. The amenities are sparse; one small bar of soap, barely enough towels for one person. The rooms that face the lake are wonderful. They all have balconies so you are able to enjoy the outside and the wonderful view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. I have come in both winter and summer and the views are great in both seasons. The staff are primarily French speaking but are very patient with my English. The hotel is a short walk to shopping, transportation and many restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Lake Geneva
