Lake view room, but the sky was a bit hazy.
Great bed, great pillows, great bathroom.

Good value room rate.

we liked the free metro/bus card provided for both days of our stay. metro stop is less than 5 mins away behind the hotel, 3 stops to the station, then 4 stops to the lake edge. Next time we will allow more time to take in a lake cruise.

Room Tip: Ask for Lake View

I think we baically got exactly what we had expected and the hotel lived up to expectations. We were happy with our spacious room with great views of the lake and Evian on the French side. The room had everything we needed and I particularly liked the large bathroom. We didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that, though I did observe that it was not very busy. It is a bit of a hike to the lake and to the Ouchi area but we used the metro easily with tickets provided by the hotel.

We had a wonderful stay here, worth every penny. We were upgraded to a junior suite. The balconies were small but the views were breathtaking with the Alps and the lake. Bathroom had a great tub and nice amenities. Staff was a real high point - very friendly and helpful with luggage storage and calling for a cab.

Two quirky discoveries: you had to insert your room key in a box on the wall for the lights to go on, and while we did indeed have the room with two beds we requested, the beds were side-by-side with no gap.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the lake. Then head down across the street to the Coop for a bottle of wine a...

We have spent 2 nights in hotel de la Paix in Lausanne.
This hotel is well located in the heart of the city. Close to the railway station,metro and shopping centers. In few minutes you are down in Ouchy, thanks to the metro, or you walk to Saint Francois square or stroll to the Cathedral
View from the bedroom is spectacular and encompass the entire Lake Leman ,facing Evian in France.
Room ( 5th floor) is rather small but well equipped with good double bed, nice bathroom with italian shower, air conditioned
Wifi is free access.
Breakfeast is very good
Your car is parked by the doorman for 28 SF a day.
We know different hotels in Lausanne and La Paix is recommended with a good ratio quality/price

Stayed 3 days for a business trip in Hotel de la Paix and it perfectly suited my business needs.

Situated in the center of the city, it is conveniently placed to some good restaurants and pubs. It has also a mesmerizing view to the lake and the Alps ! Especially if you are on 5th floor.The services are extremely professional and everything was flawless from purchasing a taxi for me at the right moment, to perfectly cleaning my room every day.Excellent free wi-fi conenction, which allowed me to work from my room when necessary.

The rooms are with a classic design, the bathrooms perfectly clean. The only thing not to my taste were the pillows which were too soft for me, but I assume that is a question of personal taste.

Needless to say, it is an expensive one, but all excellent hotels in Lausanne are pricey.

Room Tip: The rooms on the 5th floor with view to the lake are splendid !

Excellent accommodation in a good location for shopping but quite a long way from the lake unless you take the car or bus but traffic really heavy.
Staff at hotel were lovely and helpful. However our room was hot and, with the window open, very noisy especially as there were several large groups of tourists in adjacent rooms who were banging doors around and talking very loudly until the early hours. The rooms are lovely but not particularly well sound proofed. Probably the worst nights sleep we have had in a long time. Not the fault of the hotel.
The service was not great in restaurant as several things on the menu were not available. The part of restaurant that was open resembled a cafe rather than a 4* hotel restaurant. We struggled to get into a restaurant close to the hotel and spent over half an hour finding somewhere to eat.
Would recommend for a shopping trip but not for sight seeing, go nearer to the lake.

Room Tip: Lake view room if you can afford it

Nice 4 stars hotel, well located in the heart of the city, comfortable rooms, nice view, large bathroom, nice and professional staff.
I stayed only 1 night, but from the check-in I found the staff quite friendly and helpful.
Maybe they can increase the quality of the breakfast.
Rooms are clean and comfortable, view on the Geneva's lake is very nice (even from lower floors). Well soundproofed rooms (street right under), the balcony is very appreciated.
This hotel can be used for both business or leisure purpose.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with the view on the lake
