“Clean, simple, convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is conveniently located within steps from the train station. The rooms are clean, with a Scandinavian flair. No real "wow" factor, a bit pricey, but overall a very good hotel. Don't let the communist, concrete exterior deter you from staying.

However, I would suggest that if you have a car; don't stay in Lausanne, Vevey or Montreux as your Lac Leman base. Go for Rivaz or St. Saphorine.

The hotel is very newly refurbished; so everything is very well thought of. The rooms are tiny; we went for the superior rooms and even that was tiny. Breakfast buffet is limited. Location is fantastic. The hotel has a garage, but make sure you book your place in advance as space is limited - you go down via an elevator.

The only turn-off in this nice city base is the uninterested staff attitude. The same trait went on with the three members of staff we interacted with; and this makes me think there is a problem with management policies.

Very clean, very practical, Swiss themed hotel. Look quite strange from outside, but nicely done inside. Bed and mattress are absolutely fabulous - it was one of our best sleeps ever! We really enjoyed our stay and will very likely come back! A bit pricey ( we paid around 150€ per night w/o breakfast) but other than that, we have zero complaints.

A Swiss themed hotel? That sounded rather strange and I wondered what I had booked. Actually Agora Swiss Nights in Lausanne turned out to be a well located hotel (3 minutes' walk from the station) with nice rooms. The breakfast was rather pricey but the view from the breakfast room of Lake Lausanne made it worthwhile. Alternatively you could pay a few Swiss Franc for takeway coffee and a croissant in the lobby if you are in a rush. The nearby Cafe de Grancy is nice for dinner (may need to book). I would stay here again for convenience.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the upper floors. I was below ground and I think the higher-up rooms would be nic...

The hotel is quite basic but at the same time comfortable. The hotel gives you the sense that you are in a youth hostel, although the rooms are comfortable (althouhg very small). They don't have cable to watch TV that is not in French. The service is just ok, you need to be lucky with who is in the counter.

Room Tip: The breakfast is buffet, so make sure you have time enough to enjoy it. Also on the corner there is...

This place is small. With a small "s" as the rooms are tiny! However it's recently refurbished and clean which helps.

Overall feel is that of a posh youth hostel. The breakfast room is nice, breakfast is basic but fine. Staff are pleasant. Had a single room where is bed is against a glass wall that separates one from the toilet / shower. The sink is actually in the bedroom which didn't bother me but may others.

Very little storage but was only there for one night so no issue.

It's worth noting that there is no restaurant.

Seems tha Agora is relativey good priced among hotels in Lausanne. It is very closely located to main train station. The hotel is not spectacular but rather nice. Service is good, supportive and attentive. Breakfast room is located on top floor so have great view over Lausanne and Lake. The issue I coul dsee is rather small room and problems with mobile network
