Stayed here for 4 nights while touring Switzerland and it works as a perfect geographic mid-point along the shores of Lake Geneva, with Montreux and Vevey to the east and Geneva at the far west end of the lake. Although this hotel is not right in the middle of Lausanne, this section (Ouchy) of Lausanne is a refreshnig alternative and only 10 minutes away from the main train station (Lausanne Gare) via the metro that runs 4 stops down the steep hill ending in Ouchy and a 2 block walk to the hotel. The hotel itself is extremely clean, modern (somewhat sterile, but nicely done), and while frequented by business people (due to the size of the hotel and its availability of conference rooms, they host many meetings) it's still a very suitable place for vacationers. The front desk was very accommodating and as an alternative to paying 15 CHF per day for their wi-fi, a computer/printer are located directly behind the front desk area free of charge to visitors (room is secured with lock accessed by your room key). Note that breakfast is an additional cost added on to your room and VERY EXPENSIVE, however, there are several shops up past the Ouchy metro station where you can pick up a light breakfast to go for approximately 7 CHF and eat it in the park near the ferry piers for a perfect backdrop and way to start your day. I highly recommend paying a little extra and upgrading to a room with a lake view if you plan on being here for longer than 1 night. Many great restaurants await you up the hill in the city center of Lausanne near the Cathedral. At check in, the front desk will provide each member in your party with a complimentary local transportation card to be used for the duration of your stay. Although on the main street, traffic is heavy in the late afternoon until around 7PM, then steady until about 10PM, then extremely quiet after (and this is with the windows open).
