I have stayed one night for business reason at the Agora Swiss Night in Lausanne. The main criteria to choose this hotel was the fair price and the close location to the train station.
From the outside it looks a little bit dark the building but it has a nice interior. For a Swiss citizen a little bit too much traditional "Swiss" decor elements which gives the whole room a touch of kitsch. However the room has been quite spacious and was really clean. As I had a single room the bathroom is somehow integrated in the room and not a separate room with a door itself. You have a shower behind some glass wall and a toilet just next to it but the sink is practically next to the wardrobe at the entrance. Resembled a little bit over designed, however everything was there clean as well.
Downside on the room was, that it was clairaudient. You hear the neighbors talk in the night and in the morning you can hear the vibration alarm of someone's mobile phone. But during the night the street was really quiet and the bed comfortable.
Breakfast costs additional and is on the upper price limit for this hotel class I would say. Especially considering that you get pretty much the standard choice of a continental breakfast with Muesli, some yogurt, eggs, bacon, ham, croissants, bread, confiture, orange juice and coffee. After having seen the paper placemats the missing cutlery was not really a surprise (but I was really early on the day, just after they opened the buffet).
Although I have now mentioned a few points that do not fit that much into the rating the hotel is a good choice if it comes to the value you get for your money. And the few things, like the decoration an the room design are anyway individual. Besides the breakfast, that was just not a 4-star standard, not anything really as bad as it would justify to give an average rating. Thus I round up.
