“Live like a local”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

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.

We only ended up staying one night with Ariane but I wished we had stayed longer. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. She greeted us when we arrived, gave us a map and told us some things to do. The following morning we were served a wonderful breakfast and met the family who were staying next door. If you are staying In Lausanne I would highly recommend BnB Lausanne, I know where I will be staying when I come back!

This was our first stop on our recent trip to Switzerland and we were very impressed with the warm welcome of our hosts, Ariane and James. The guest rooms are in their home and we felt like we were staying with friends. The rooms were very comfortable and the inn is in a very convenient location. Both Ariane and James were happy to suggest places to eat and interesting things to see, as well as providing directions. The best part? The breakfast! Ariane's muesli is hands down the best there is. For the rest of our trip, we never found muesli that could compare. If you are looking for a small, friendly place to stay - this is it!

We would highly recommend BnbLausanne if you are looking for a very reasonably-priced room in Lausanne. Ariane and James are wonderful hosts and were eager to cater to our needs. There are two rooms available - one with a double bed and one that could sleep up to four. The two rooms share two bathrooms, so unless there is a large group in one of the rooms, it is like having a private bathroom. The B&B is a 10 minute walk - toward the Lake - from the train station, and the main part of the Lake and the old part of the city are easily accessible on foot. The breakfast was among the best we had in Switzerland - a lovely muesli, fruit and yoghurt combination and a variety of breads and croissant, as well as orange juice and coffee. If we are ever back in Lausanne we will certainly stay in BnbLausanne.

We enjoyed our visit at the B&B Laussane thanks to our hosts. The B&B was located on the second floor of a condo or apartment building with two rooms located inside the hosts apartment. The rooms are very simple with bathrooms outside of the room. There are no TV's in the rooms but we came in late and tired so ready to get to bed.

Our hosts were very pleasant and easy to talk to.

Breakfast was outstanding. The hosts ask you what time you want breakfast and accommodate you with a stunning display of musili, yogert, cheese, breads and terrific finger sandwiches.

The location was a little off the beaten path so hauling our luggage to their location was a little bit of a challenge but the hosts were able to give us better directions on our way back to the train station. You are certainly walkable to Ouchy and the lake front.

We so enjoyed their hospitality. Thanks so much for our stay.

Ariane and James are terrific hosts...very personable, with good advice, directions, maps, etc...
The room was quiet, wifi worked perfectly, bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. What more could one ask !
Easy to get there from the train station...less than a 10-minute walk (and all downhill !). I;d come back agian without hesitation.
