I would definitely come to stay in this hotel again given a chance, although the room assigned for me is at the ground floor and behind my room is like a drain and abandoned garden. the room is rather small comparing what's shown online, could hardly have space to open up my luggage. but, I am pretty happy with the room after closing the curtain not seeing the abandoned garden and the drain, which look rather dirty. they have cozy lobby and bed for sure. very homey feeling just like a cottage you would find in the wood, pretty romantic too. I really appreciate the décor of the hotel which give you an absolute feeling that you are in Switzerland. around the hotel area are some nice food outlets just within walking distance.

they have the restaurant on the top floor of the building with view of the area is stunning. breakfast is not wow, but the view is to die for.

Room Tip: choose a room on higher floors and you will get better view

The hotel is very handy for Lausanne train station,just 5mins away.We were in room no.729 & it was very modern,very clean & very well designed.We both loved the shower room and the beds were very comfortable.The room was very quiet as well.Other reviewers
had complained about the air conditioning but we found it to be excellent,it worked perfectly.
We were given a free bus & metro pass from the hotel,great idea.
The Wi-Fi was 1st class & worked perfectly throughout the hotel.
Our deal included free breakfasts (apparently they are 22- CHF per person per day,bit steep).The breakfasts were excellent,plenty of choice & very tasty.The breakfast room is on the top floor in a rooftop conservatory with stunning views of Lake Geneva & the French Alps.
The gym & sauna are on the 1st floor & are below ground level(The reception is on the 3rd floor).
Unfortunately the gym itself is pretty basic.Just one of each :- weights machine,treadmill,stepper,bicycle & rowing machine.No windows & no air-con.Just a roof light at the far side.A tiny little sauna and just 1 shower each for men & women.Shame.
All the staff & cleaners were very friendly and the receptionists were helpful with information on restaurants,cafes & the various different attractions in Lausanne.
We would definately recommend this hotel and we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: 729 was a quiet room so try to request a room on a higher floor.If you like your beverages in your...

We enjoyed the hotel, other than the air conditioning did not work. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and well decorated. We really appreciated the free bus and metro pass. The metro was only one block from the hotel, so it was easy to get around to see the sights.

The Agora is very conveniently located near Lausanne station and the free WiFi is actually good. The style of the rooms is modern; they're very clean and the bed comfortable. Unfortunately, there are no atmosphere controls beyond on and off, just as the lighting is only on/off (and rather blindingly bright first thing in the morning).

My room on the 9th floor has an unappealing odor of sewage coming from the shower drain but I'm guessing this was unusual.

The breakfast room has a splendid room of Lake Geneva and the selection of the cold buffet is really excellent, but the price, on top of the room price, makes this an overpriced hotel, all things included

Room Tip: Don't choose the 9th floor if you are tall as the roof is peaked.

Lovely hotel with excellently designed rooms. Excellent Wi-Fi connection. Comfortable bed and great cleaners do a terrific job. Front staff are young and could be more thorough and helpful. Breakfast is a disappointment despite the great views from the dining room, unfriendly staff simple offering and not worth CHF22 per person .

Lausanne is a stopover point of our trip from Switzerland to France. Not much expectation to the hotel for staying only 1 night during our journey. Delightfully located at a calm street with few minutes walk from the train station. Cool decoration throughout the whole premises, guest room settings are handy and cosy. After sweet slept, don't miss the breakfast in the glasshouse at the roof floor. Superb view and heavenly adorment, you can tenderly touch with the sunny sky and beautiful surroundings. Staff are pleasant and smart. A free travel card given by the front desk could bring you anywhere in Lausanne without paying. Enjoy our stay there and award with remarkable memories!

We were en route by train to Lake Maggiore so we had been booked in here by our agent. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the railway station, but very quiet location. Our room was spotlessly clean, modern and with the most comfortable bed I think I have ever had in any hotel! The bed was continental double with individual mattress and duvets.
Breakfast was a very pleasant continental, with lovely fresh bread and rolls etc. The view from the top floor restaurant was over the lake and mountains and was breathtaking . Breakfast was part of our package. We were able to leave our luggage until we caught our onward train mid afternoon. Staff were friendly and polite.
