My family were guests of the Elite Hotel in Lausanne for one night on August 5th , 2013. I understood that the hotel was not on the lake shore, but had no idea it was a 25 minute walk down a very steep hill. Granted, there is bus service down to the water's edge, but the hotel is located in a very difficult area to drive to without knowing the area well. The hotel is just not what we expected and was very hot and did not smell very nice. I would not recommend this hotel to any American traveling to Lausanne. The breakfast was pitiful and just not what we came to expect from many of the reviews on this site. Try another hotel in Lusanne.

A good option for exploring Lausanne and the surrounding area. Small and intimate within an easy walk from the train station. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Stayed three nights with family in two rooms. Breakfast a bit thin - not much fresh fruit, but quite decent.

I was there 4 nights because of a conference trip. The hotel was nice, wifi in the room, minibar, nice view, good staff, satellite tv, good breakfast (even if no cappuccino available). Ask for free transport card to the reception, it is for free and you can use all Lausanne public transport.

We booked the hotel because we wanted something in town and not too expensive. The Hotel Elite is well located and seemed good value at about €140 per single room. We booked three.
We arrived and were welcomed and checked in without fuss, which was a good start. The lobby smelt of cigarette smoke and there was an odd smell of food on the fourth floor. To log onto the (slow) wifi I had to traipse all the way down to reception to be given a hard-to-read code on a slip of paper. This could only be used once and on one device so wouldn't let me use my phone.
And then the room - it was compact but had everything including a chilled minibar. But it was fiendishly hot. Even with the windows open so that street noises intruded the temperature was tropical. The bedding was clingy and the pillows soft to the point of being ridiculous. And it wasn't just my room. And then a cramped breakfast room serving a meagre, sad continental breakfast. The coffee was the best thing about it.

Room tip: Consider running a cold shower with the door open to cool the room and create a draught.

The hotel Elite is a very nice hotel within walking distance of Lausanne railway station, making it very convenient when taking a train from the airport. Although it doesn't have a restaurant for evening meals, it does a very good continental breakfast, great coffee and a good selection of breads, croissants, ham and cheese. The best thing about the hotel are the beds, which are very comfortable, with feather quilts and pillows, which you sink into for a great sleep.
