“Great hotel with very nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Stayed one night here on the way to Spain. The hotel is very nice and the staff was helpful and friendly at checkin. I was traveling with a baby and a dog which is not always easy, but the room was setup with the baby cod on arrival which was great. I also loved the lake view. Worth paying a little extra for.

Since we couldn't leave the rom we ordered room service and the food was great. Compliments to the kitchen.

Now to some warnings. The hotel garage has a maximium height of 1.85m. it would have been nice to get a heads up before driving down the narrow alley and being forced to back out due to our roof rack. Excusable though. not excusable though was the water temperature when I had a shower later the evening. I had goose bumps once I was finished and had to warm up in bed first. I have read about this in another review and can only back it up. This should be addressed by the hotel.

Room Tip: take the lake view

This hotel is perfectly located, just by the waterfront, 100 mts from train station, hotel gives you free transportation cards, restaurants of great quality and different pricing, breakfast with lots of options and quality and quantity.

I know this Hotel for different purposes: business lodging, dinner in the very nice brasserie and summer ICe-cream.. :-) It's very well located along the lake in Lausanne, on the beautiful promenade. It's very clean and comfortable inside, thou with a modern furniture (I normally prefer old-fashion ones). The staff is very kind and the service is always excellent, They have an internal small bar/brasserie very nice during the evening. Prices are higher during the week (business related) but can go down a lot during the weekend where tourists are. The location is also very close to the Metro station, about a 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: I would suggest the rooms positioned on the lake side, very nice!!

While the rooms are small, they have everything you need. The staff are excellent and the location good for business and leisure. This is my second stay and I would go back again. The breakfast has a good range and everything is very close.

A good hotel in an excellent location. Rooms are a good size and clean. WiFi works well and the staff are superb. Only negative is the birds in the restaurant but this adds a bit of character to the place!

A very good hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights in November because of studies at IMD which is closeby. The location is in that way very good, and I was lucky to have a room with a view to Geneva Lake. Room was fine, but the first night was too hot in the room, aircon was very noisy and to open the window was not an option because of the street noise. Next nights was much better somehow. Service was excellent and breakfast was good. Strange that birds was flying around the restautant?
I guess swiss hotels just are expensive (first time in Switzerland) but I think this was really expensive.
All in all, very good hotel with excellent service, but also expensive.

Standard meals but consistently good. Nothing amazing. Staff were very accommodating for our toddler and arranged smaller portions of adult meals.
