Hotel Union is situated close to the Metro Station in Lausanne in a nice location. I spent a night in this hotel in one of its attic room. Room was small but nice. Hotel staffs were great and breakfast was good. Recommended for business trip.

I stayed for 5 nights, shared room with a colleague, it was comfortable stay, standard breakfast, fast easy check in, only downside, it's remote from city main attraction, but it was close to my business, I am very satisfied with the experience

Very practical location if you want to use the metro M2 connecting to the CHUV, the city center, the train station and the lake shore. Small room under the roof with no air-conditioning. The traffic noise deters you from opening the window. Reception staff hardly pleasant. Wi-Fi did not work in our room. Poor breakfast.

As per the other reviews, this hotel has a serious problem with customer care. If it cost half as much to stay here then it may (if you're desperate) be worth considering. I think that the main problem is that the management has absolutely no idea about hospitality and therefore fails utterly to properly train their staff. As an example,... More

Final judgement (if you want to skip the detail): Considering problems resulting from structure, and service, the dated and stale environment, this is too expensive. Give me an Ibis Budget (see review for Zurich Airport from same trip) any day! Long live thoughtfully designed and well-managed limited (or is it now called 'focused'?) service hospitality by the big hotel groups.... More

The Hotel sits right beside a very large uphill road. The area is extremely chaotic, and the upside is that you have the metro station right at the doorstep. It could even be bearable for a night or two, perhaps in winter when you sleep with windows closed. But in summer it's a nightmare. Our triple room had a single... More

Did but enjoy the hotel much. Will choose Ibis or similar next time. Noisy road, a bit tired, okay beds and shower. Offensive cigarette smoke when entering hotel. Convenient parking Supermarkets next door Slow wifi (not different from most hotels).
