Rooms are ok, breakfast was average. Car parking is little bit far around 300m. Location is good next to metro station and in front of train station. There is supermarket in the train station which is very near.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your feedback following your stay in our Hotel.
Please note that most of our clients use the free of charge parking service in order to avoid moving themselves their car to the parking place! As for the breakfast, please be informed that our Hotel offers a lot of possibilities- Full Buffet Breakfast, Continental or express – as in this way we try to adapt ourselves to our client’s demand!
Hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back at the Continental Hotel soon.
With my best regards

Hotel is very well located right across from train station. It has a bar which also serves passing customers so is often quite busy.
The rooms are pretty small, and in mine the bed was less than comfortable. However staff are very friendly and helpful.
Overall its OK for a couple of nights business but personally I wouldnt want to go there for several days as a base for a vacation.

I was on a Business trip to Lausanne and stayed in this hotel for about 2 weeks.

Firstly, the location of the hotel is excellent! Switzerland is pretty heavy on train travel and this hotel is literally right outside the train station hence also providing good connectivity to other means of transport as well - buses, metro, etc. The hotel also provides free travel pass for the city. The place is surrounded by various restaurants and eateries, so finding a decent bite to eat is not a challenge.

Hotel is currently undergoing renovation work, and while the current reception is small an unimpressive, the 'future reception' photo on the notice board looks impressive, also the reception staff is very friendly and makes up for it.

Nice, clean rooms, helpful staff, free internet, a good breakfast spread (it could have been slightly better) - overall a perfect hotel for a business traveller, I just wish they had more english channels on TV :)

Room Tip: Get a double room. Single room is too small.

The first impression from the outside and entering the lobby was not so good (very small, old furniture, old Xams decoration still on site!) but the room was very nice, large and well decorated and also the corridor and the elevator area were well kept and very clean, with coffee, etc.
The personnel was nice and helpful. Also breakfast was good, with plenty of food and a nice array of different choices.
We choose the hotel for his location near the Train Station and also for public transportation, which we used a lot also thanks to the clever and excellent promotion by the city of Lausanne to give a free public transportation card to all foreign visitors staying in a hotel. We stayed 3 nights. If we'll ever go back to Lausanne we'll book again this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 days during business trip. The location is central, especially if you use the public transportation (I didn't). The hotel building looks like a building from the 70s. The reception and lobby area is pretty small. My room was on the 1st floor facing the train station. I asked for higher floors but the hotel was full, so I had to stay in my room. The room was rather small, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was average, typical European selections.
If you get a good deal and don't plan to spend much time in the hotel, this hotel may be a good choice.

Placed near the train station with a a lovely hotel with an excellent customer service and breakfast options. TV channels are also in any language. Hotel rooms are of a good size and excellent quality with a brilliant shower facility. But no fitness facility is available. Although you are not far from the lake if running is your thing.

Room Tip: Try not to stay on the side of the main droid it can be noisy at night.
