The rooms are spatious with big windows. You can comfortably sit in the room and take in the view of the lake and the mountains. You can even walk out to a small balcony . The location is best, right across from the train station.

The hotel is very nice and well located. It is in front of the main train station and also with the metro and bus stops.
It is very near to the city center, you just can walk around the city being there.

Regarding the infrastructure, the hotel is very nice and the rooms are excellent. The receptionist and all the staff were very gentle with us.

I strongly recommend the hotel if you want to stay in Lausanne.

The hotel located right across the train station. We made reservation for 2 rooms that were bright and comfortable. The only problem we faced was not working air conditioner in both rooms. The hotel staff brought us fans that didn't really help a lot in the hot Lausanne weather. The rest was great. The rooms were ready for us at noon. The friendly staff gave us city maps and free public transportation passes.
We would definitely recommend this hotel. Hope they will be able to fix climate controls soon.

Room Tip: It is noisy because of the public transportation and train station across the street.

I emailed the hotel and received a good price for 2 rooms-2 nights. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful! The location was extremely convenience since it is situated by the train station. However, the room did not meet my expectation. There are the following things:
- room is not really cleaned, dust can be seen under the sunlight
- the bathroom's drainage smell really bad
- no soap holder
- bathroom was not really cleaned when we check in
- no tooth paste & brush
- wifi is really slow
- we asked for extra plates with cutleries to cut the cake, the staff who gave us the things, he WAS NOT FRIENDLY AT ALL! did not complain about him as i forgot.

I would not consider going back there as for me 4 stars hotel should not be like that!

The hotel is in a very convenient location right across from the main train station. The room was clean and well kept up, though the shower head was cracked and did not provide a uniform spray. The room was tiny and required some careful navigation because there was only a foot of space between the end of the bed and the opposite wall. Probably not too bad for a couple of days. It got tiresome over 5 days to plan trips from one side of the room to the other. I tried to keep everything I needed on one side so I wouldn't have to traverse the bed. Did I mention the room was tiny?
