I came to Lausanne on business and wanted to keep things simple. I initially found Hotel Continental via Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. I admit, I'm typically a Hilton Property girl and do not often stray. However, the location and simple accommodations were spot on. Located directly across from the train station, you can't beat it....

Good points - Location is great if you are using the train. Clean tidy and comfortable rooms with a great shower. Excellent gym next door with access for guests. Decent breakfast buffet. Pleasant staff. Downside - Bathroom could do with a few more lights. Shame there is no hotel bar. Imagine rooms at the front could be noisy if you...

Well, it couldn't have been closer! The last morning, I had breakfast at the hotel and managed to grab one of the tables with a view of...

I was recently in Lausanne for work at CHUV for the week. I picked the Hotel Continental because it seemed like a sound decision - near public transportation, pictures looked nice, and one of the preferred hotels for work. The Hotel Continental was fine.... That is about it. I came back from work one day to the my room door...

We just came out of the station and walked a few yards to this clean friendly hotel. We are on the top floor with a balcony facing the lake- great view! Quiet, well appointed and reasonable - what more can you ask for! We had a family room and it was very spacious and comfy. Would recommend ++

Spent 3 nights of our 12 day holiday at this hotel and had a fabulous stay. We were having trouble getting a family room at the hotels by the lake (for the view) as we booked very last minute but can't complain after the service we received here. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They were always ready to...

Even if stated on the website, that windows were replaced the noises from the trains, busses and the street are very loud. Same with AC: so the options are: open windows and noise from the street...
