We had a a little confusion before traveling about the specific dates; the hotel staff were really professional & very good about changing our dates, confirming it & still providing 2 rooms with views. The rooms were great. The hotel staff are very professional & the service was highly efficient and friendly. Be very careful however if you need an...

Hotel rooms are a bit small, but made up for by the location and the awesome front desk/owners. There is a great restaurant attached also. The only real negative is our room faced the back and there was quite a bit of noise during the day from trucks unloading, glass breaking and other kitchen sounds. The noise would die off...

We had a lovely 2 night stay here and this hotel was one of my favourite stays. We had 2 rooms at the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor, which were very quiet. It was quite hot during our stay so we kept the windows open all night. The rooms were large and well designed and very clean....

We booked a junior suite on level 3 overlooking the lake and it was well worth the extra money. Plenty of space and great views over Lac Leman. Metro cards are provided and the hotel is only 500m away from station and only four stops from Lausanne Gare train station. Reception staff are not overly friendly but are efficient. Housekeeping...

We had made a booking for a double room overlooking the Lake - a wise move as the view is breathtaking! A few days before we received an email offering us a Junior Suite with lake view for 30 CHF (Swiis francs) extra - it was well worth it as the Junior Suite was very spacious and luxurious. The room...

This hotel had a great location opposite the lake. Hotel was clean & tidy with a lovely restaurant down stairs. Food was average. We found that the people/staff weren't that friendly only towards locals. Great location and only about 100 metres from the main train that climbs up the hill and takes you to the main train station. The boat...

This hotel embeds an old atmosphere that might considered good or not. In few words: it is really near Lausanne Metro (stop Ouchy), 4 minutes from the station with Metro, lakefront. There is not airconditioning, this is probably the worst thing. Room are good, sleeping quality is ok. Breakfast is decent for the price you pay. I can easily say...

Great little hotel right on the sea front at Ouchy. Great location! The views over the lake are fantastic. We paid a little extra for the suites on the third floor, which guarantees a great view. Rooms are spotless and the suites are huge, good if you have a group of people. Breakfast was great value considering food prices locally....

Easy to find, great place to stay, courteous and helpful staff (even when I broke a glass and lost their umbrella), good internet - and with a wonderful restaurant on the premises, that looks like a favourite place to stop for a beverage after a promenade on the lakefront directly outside the hotel.
