Stayed 3 nights, everything absolutely perfect - multi lingual front desk staff very friendly and helpful; huge room, execelent bathroom, superb breakfast - perfect location, just across railroad station. Room perfectly clean, absolutely well kept, nice amenities - in short, an excelent choice!

The hotel is well located just in front of the main railway station and walking distance from the old town. The breakfast is quite decent and I loved their huge nespresso machine. On the other hand, my biggest issue with this hotel was the really hard and unconfortable bed, as well as non adjustable room temperature. I totally agree with...

Arrived 9pm to find room +25C, told the air conditioning had been turned-off for the summer and if I wanted to cool the room then open the window...when over looking the busiest street in Lausanne! It was like sleeping in a sauna! Don't stay at this hotel!

Dear Sir, Following your comments and our phone conversation, I would like once more to underline how sorry I am for the bad experience you had during the night you’ve stayed in our Hotel! It’s true that the air-conditioning was not working as according to the weather forecast the temperature should not go over 15C. Independently to that, our staff...

We stayed here 3 times over a period of 2 weeks. Very convenient location and they only charge 7CHF for parking. Same room each time which was nice. The room, a junior suite was large with a king sized bed (two twins put together?) and a sofa that makes into a bed. Nothing remarkable but nothing wrong either. Good use...

Excellent location just opposite of the Main Railway station, excellent service, rooms, and not to forget, the breakfast. Just a few metres to the Metro, connecting to all facilities in Lausanne, and a free bus/metro/train ticket for one day per night at the hotel, made it easy to move around in Lausanne and the nearest surroundings.

Great location directly across from train station. Good price, I couldn't find a better price for anything like this hotel or location. Great Wifi, very speedy. Clean spacious room, comfortable room. Quiet, but we didn't have a street side room, so don't know if that would be worse. Downstairs there's a quiet little bar perfect for a night cap. Continental...

I lived in Lausanne for a few years and have been going back 3-4 times a year ever since. Having said this, I've never even noticed this hotel even though it's directly across the street from the Lausanne train station. And I have only nice things to say about the hotel - rooms are nice and fairly well maintained, the...

Nothing fundamentally wrong but also nothing remarkable. Definitely needs renovation. Decoration is 1980's. Many details usual for 4* places aren't available there, eg no hooks in bathroom. Special rates we had was OK but certainly not worth the normal rate in spite of its convenient location.
