Nicely located with parking under the building which is useful. Good for business, although wifi isn't free, room quality is nice although rooms aren't particularly big. Nice all round hotel though and will stay there again for business.

Good sized comfortable rooms with modern furnishings. Great location on the lake and close to the various corporations in Lausanne (Philip Morris, BAT, Nespresso, etc.). Room service, breakfast and dinner were all solid quality. The gym looked VERY well equipped for a European hotel. Friendly service and reasonable (for Switzerland) rates.

Very nice view of the Lake with lots of seagulls and swans nearby in the lake. We can see the Euro symbol from our room! The bed and mattress are extremely comfortable! We stayed in a Luxury Room and it is very spacious! I especially love the view of the mountain and sky why I lay down on the sofa!

I stay in Lausanne several times per year for business and finally I have found a good hotel that (on this occasion) didn't cost the Earth!

Staff were superb, young friendly and very professional. Newly renovated room was excellent with everything you need. Finally location - right across from the lake, next to the metro, and if you have time near the beach/ outdoor swimming area. Taxi was 5-10mins from the train station.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel!

This is a great hotel, best of the mid-range group - short of paying for premium, this is the best location. It gets 5 stars from me for being best at what it says it is. It's right across from the lake and parks, 3 min walk to the metro, 6 or 7 to the ferry terminals, but being at the end of the park, it's actually quite quiet. The staff were wonderfully helpful, the restaurant is expensive but excellent. THE ONLY THING...no free wifi? Not a bad payoff for for a good, well-priced experience, and with free wifi in the park, it was not a problem for me, but may be for business clients. That aside, the other mid-range hotels not just in Lausanne but around Switzerland could take a leaf from this place. Coming to Lausanne and not wanting to pay for the premium experience? This is our place!

We originally stayed in Lauseanne due to the fact that no one could agree on a hotel in Geneva. Staying in Lauseanne was an excellent decision. The town of Lauseanne is loaded with charm and is still directly on the lake. This hotel overlooks beautiful lake Geneva. The rooms were large enough, clean with comfortable beds. The staff was professional and the breakfast satisfactory. I would stay again.

The hotel looks a bit outdated; some rooms have been recently renovated and are more modern. My room was very spacious, super clean and the bed very comfortable. The room rate was reasonable for this location. However, the extras you need when you attend a two day meeting in one of their meeting rooms are very costly! Wifi access costs CHF 22 a day (for the fast connection which is still quiet slow. Anyway, I do not understand why you need to pay for Wifi – it’s free of charge in every Starbucks which offers even a faster connection!), each coffee in the room was charged with CHF 4.20 (there was a Nespresso machine in the meeting room - I have never experienced before that I need to pay the coffee pads). Breakfast was not included in the room rate either (CHF 34) and was disappointing: normal choice of buffet, the Rösti was cold, no more beacon at 8.30 (I was told that I was a bit late for that. Breakfast is supposed to be available until 10.30).
Most of the front desk staff seemed young and therefore inexperienced. The check-in was slow, my complaint regarding the extremely slow and very expensive Wifi answered with a truly silly answer (the weather is beautiful today, there should not be a problem with the connection...) and they were not able to find out in which meeting room I was supposed to go.
Overall, rooms are ok, the location is great and the service and amenities need to be improved.
