I'm use to staying in hotels and having human contact face to face. Here in this hotel we were outside in the rain ringing a doorbell for quiet a long time before someone answered on an inter com. Only to be asked our names and we were let in.

Inside is just an entrance foyer and stairs. We were told by the person who spoke on the intercom to wait in the reception but there is none. Only mail boxes and 2 phones. When the phone rings we were to answer and that is an off site reception. But you can't tell which phone is ringing. I see other guests who just arrived and they also answered the wrong phone. It was almost comical. No human touch. A little too much impersonal for me.

Each time we arrive to our room, it is cleaned but we never saw any hotel staff

In the morning there is a bread basket of croissants and that is the complimentary breakfast. But you have to be alert to see these because it is a bit obscured on the right side of the exit door and quickly disappeared. Of the 3 days we only saw croissants on our last day of stay because we left early.

The kitchen-like closet to me is ingenious! The bed should be thrown away and replaced. Same goes with the carpet. No air conditioner so we were lucky it was cool nights. The brochure sure was different from the real thing.

It was very difficult to locate this hotel and no parking for guests. If you arrived with a car after 6 pm the existing parking is gone and we ended up 4 blocks away from the hotel because there are also the locals who need to park. I didn't really enjoy this stay in this hotel.

location is awesome and very close to the main train statation, it takes 5 minutes to go to the hotel from station by walk. Tiny and very clean room but a little bit noisy because of the flush :) You can hear who complete their job in the rest room :) because of the water pipe :)
But whatever happens it highly recommend this hotel. By the way it's good experience that there is no reception exists, you are communicate a guy via telephone, it is like in the movies (etc.The Game)

Room Tip: don't choose number 104 if you don't want to hear anything happens in the rest room :)

This hotel was hard to find, had no secure storage, rude staff who were not on site. The rooms was small and pokey - the bathroom door didn't shut. There was a water pipe in the room so you could hear when the people in the room above flushed their toilet.

Breakfast wasn't inlcuded but it was mentioned on the receipt.

Completely over priced and close to many other hotels

This place was hard to find with our GPS and we wandered for a while before asking some locals for help. The hotel has a telephone check-in process, which actually worked better than I thought it would - after hearing about it from other reviewers. The room was big, two rooms really, with an adequate bathroom, very clean, and overlooking a pleasant street with several cafes nearby. Loved the neighborhood and is close to the Lausanne gare (train station). Parking at or near the hotel, however, is almost impossible. I understand there is decent parking near the gare, 2-3 blocks away. I would definitely consider staying here again because it was clean and comfortable. And I would probably park at the gare next time too.

Stayed here with my daughter for four days. Good location close the the train station. The wifi was a bit spotty, but it did work.
