“Great Views”
Reviewed March 15, 2006

Lausanne in general is very steep if you are walking, that is why if you are walking from the train station to the lausanne guesthouse is a 5-10 minute walk depending on how fit you are, it can be a bit of a hike with heavy bags going down a hill then straight up but it can be done, you're on holidays!
It has a beautiful view of the Evian mountains when it is not foggy, so in summer it would be great. The rooms are very nice and clean, staff are also very friendly and approachable.

I stayed in Lausanne Guest house two nights. While the rooms weren't fancy, they were modern, clean, airy and comfortable. Our room had a nice balcony with a great view. The staff were always very accomodating and friendly. We took advantage of the internet and the laundry, and there was also a nice kitchen we could have used but didn't. The location is right next to the train station, but the noise wasn't a problem because the rooms were facing away from the station. I would definitely stay there again.
