Nice hotel near the center of the town. Modern design. However due to the transparent glass shower walls not ideal for families with children over toddler age. Overall impression very good.
Stayed there for just a night so that's all.

Agora Swiss Night corresponds to the facts on its site and the rating. Lovely design, close proximity to the railway station and metro, tea facilities in the room, free transport card – they provide it all. A bit chilly in the shower, as they say, there should be a certain difference between inside and outside temperatures; you can’t change this to your liking. Reasonable price, too, in comparison to other Swiss hotels. In toto, Agora Swiss Night is excellent for a short stay.

Dear Madam

Thank you for your kind message concerning your stay in our Hotel Agora. We are happy to know you find the quality and prices corresponding.
You are right concerning our bathrooms, they do not have separate heating systems. They are all connected with the heating in the rooms, so raising the heat in the rooms will make also the bathroom warmer.
Waiting to welcome you again please accept, Madam, we send you our best wishes.

My family spend 1 night in Agora Swiss. The location will be the best part of this hotel. 1 minute walk to the train station, which conveniently accessed Lausanne.
Lots of restaurants within walking distance too.
We requested for 2 connecting rooms for my family (including 2 kids aged 4 and 7) but was told that they were taken. The reception staff did their jobs well but did not make any effort to accommodate our request or make us feel welcomed.

While the rooms/hotel/lobby looked nicely decorated, I felt that the cleanliness could up a notch. I noticed stains on bed sheets etc.

Parking was available at CHF20/night, which is rather reasonable.

Overall, for the prices, I felt that breakfast should be included.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for choosing one of our Fassbind Hotels in Lausanne to stay in.
We are very sorry that you did not get your wished room-type. We do not have many connecting rooms, so unfortunately it might happen, that on busy days they are all already taken.
Many of our clients prefer not wish to eat in the morning. With the breakfast not included in the rate they are not obliged to pay for a service they do not use.
Thank you for your feedback, your advices are very important for us!
Hopefully your next stay will be perfect in our hotel.

I stayed here with my family and enjoyed my stay. Good clean hotel, near to metro and also walking distance to city center. Parking is also available in hotel, with charges but also there are many Parkhaus near by. The view from 9th floor is amazing and just adds to the breakfast experience in the beautiful restaurant.

Spent a single night here upon a very early morning arrival into Switzerland after a cummulative 30 hours of travel. So was obviously delirious. Unfortunately the rooms weren't available for a few hours so I had brunch at Cafe de Grancy a few doors away which I'd highly recommend.

Hotel itself is very new and extremely convenient to Lausanne central station, especially if you work out how to get to the lifts which take you from the station to a back street that cuts to the hotel's street.

I really liked the Swiss fetish decor - cows, cow skin chairs, cuckoo clocks and Swiss army style blankets. My single room was small but well decorated and comfortable. The only downside is the staff were mainly indifferent and impersonal. A shame because that would have lifted this hotel to the next level.

Conveniently located next to the train station, taking you just a few min walk, the modern hotel offers a nice room with free wifi and a comfortable bed. You do also get a public transportation card for the duration of ur stay, which doesnt cost you anything extra. The service is prompt, the staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is very clean. You wont get disappointed.
