Hotel Continental Lausanne
Ranked #13 of 46 Hotels in Lausanne
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed here 3 times over a period of 2 weeks. Very convenient location and they only charge 7CHF for parking.
Same room each time which was nice. The room, a junior suite was large with a king sized bed (two twins put together?) and a sofa that makes into a bed. Nothing remarkable but nothing wrong either. Good use a facelift, for sure! Breakfast is great and included in our room price...though if you have extra people, it's a little spendy for breakfast....I think about 23 CHF.
Staff is nice and when there was a problem with the bill, it was worked out quickly.

Excellent location just opposite of the Main Railway station, excellent service, rooms, and not to forget, the breakfast.

Just a few metres to the Metro, connecting to all facilities in Lausanne, and a free bus/metro/train ticket for one day per night at the hotel, made it easy to move around in Lausanne and the nearest surroundings.

Great location directly across from train station.
Good price, I couldn't find a better price for anything like this hotel or location.
Great Wifi, very speedy.
Clean spacious room, comfortable room.
Quiet, but we didn't have a street side room, so don't know if that would be worse.
Downstairs there's a quiet little bar perfect for a night cap.
Continental breakfast included was fine, not great, but unexpectedly included with the room.

The front desk staff were extremely helpful and polite.

I lived in Lausanne for a few years and have been going back 3-4 times a year ever since. Having said this, I've never even noticed this hotel even though it's directly across the street from the Lausanne train station. And I have only nice things to say about the hotel - rooms are nice and fairly well maintained, the location is really convenient and there are a number of restaurants in the neighborhood to choose from. I have often stayed at the Alpha Palmiers and I have to say that I prefer the Continental.

Nothing fundamentally wrong but also nothing remarkable.
Definitely needs renovation. Decoration is 1980's.
Many details usual for 4* places aren't available there, eg no hooks in bathroom.
Special rates we had was OK but certainly not worth the normal rate in spite of its convenient location.

Pros:
-Best location in Lausanne. Across from the central train station. Co-located with Metro subway, McDonalds, several restaurants and pharmacy.
-Very large specious "classic" rooms (economy rooms smaller)
-Some rooms have views (south facing water, north facing hill)
-Very good breakfast
-Comfortable bed
-Good housekeeping
-Coffee machine (in the hallway to share) only
-Good warm service at check in and check out

I cannot identify any flaws. It's an excellent choice in Lausanne and I would stay there again.
