This hotel could not be in a more practical place if you are arriving by train. It is opposite the main station entrance and also has a metro station entrance meters away.
I stayed here for 5 nights for business in the area. Unlike many things in Lausanne, I found this hotel to be appropriately priced and the level of service was high. There are several other hotels in Switzerland belonging to the small chain that runs it (and indeed, another sister hotel in Lausanne only minutes away down the hill towards the lake). This one seems aimed at business people and thus is suited me. Here are the main positive points that you may wish to consider when choosing it
1) Rooms are modern and clean. The bathrooms are also spotless and the shower pressure adequate.
2) The rooms on the 4th floor have a good view of the mountains and even a little bit of the lake.
3) The air conditioning in my room was efficient.
4) There is an excellent, professional fitness club in the same building and you will have free access to it.
5) There is a Pain Quotidien on the ground floor offering reasonably healthy freshly made food and decent coffee. It closes early (1900) like most things in Lausanne.
6) There is a Starbucks 10 meters from the front door.
7) I didn't try breakfast in the hotel but another guest with whom I spoke was positive in her assessment
8) The staff were very helpful and friendly - mostly young and very professional. These two attributes are not always not found together.
9) I enjoyed my stay because of the proximity to so many aspects of Lausanne - St Francois for shops, Ouchy for the lake and so on.
All in all a very nice hotel for business. I will use it whenever I can.
