Arianne and James let out two bedrooms in their large apartment on the third floor of a apartment building less than a ten minute walk below the train station. There was space on the sidewalk to stop our car and drop off of our luggage in front of the building. Arianne provided a parking disk. Parking is on an "space available" basis in this residential/business district so you must be willing to drive around the neighborhood in search of a space. Be aware that the disk is good for only 1 12 hours of parking during the day and you will have to reset the disk each time it expires or get a ticket. Otherwise for long term parking it is necessary to pay to park your car in the garage at the train station.
The building has an elevator. The two bedrooms share two adjacent baths. Both bedrooms were full during our three night stay and sharing baths was no problem at all. A nice touch is the bathrobes which are provided. Guests have the use of a lounge complete with a computer, TV, small refrigerator and microwave. Our king-bed room had two windows and a small fan which greatly helped during the above-average hot weather we experienced. Both the metro and the train station are only a short walk away. Arianne is exceedingly helpful in recommending places to see or where to eat and help you feel like you're a local in Lausanne.
