This hotel is right next to Lausanne Gard (a major train station, and Metro stop), about halfway between the waterfront (Ouchy) and the old part of town. The hotel will give you a free Metro card for your stay and it's very easy and convenient to get around to the places you need to see in Lausanne.
The room itself was clean, relatively modern and comfortable. The bed was a bit hard and not the most comfortable, but passable. Though we were on the train station side of the hotel, it was actually relatively quiet when the window was shut. Could barely hear the trains at all. Might recommend some ear plugs if you can't sleep with ANY noise whatsoever.
The breakfast was a cold breakfast which was solid, but not spectacular.
The Hotel staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations.
