We stayed here one night on our trip around the lake. The rooms were very spacious, very clean and overall a nice location. It can get a bit noisy late at night with several night clubs around the area but we just closed our windows and we were fine. I would use this hotel again if I were in the... More

Thank you very much :) You are right "street side rooms" may be noisy at night, this is why we offer for only CHF 10.- supplement an upgrade in the Garden side which are firstly very calm. Next time book a superior room to sleep quietly with open windows. We hope see you again in lausanne ! Best regards, Sarah More

We stayed here for one night. The rooms were huge and the bathroom was lovely. The bed and pillows were very uncomfy. The bar downstairs was very unorganized - staff were slow making drinks and bringing them to the table. The location of the hotel is great. Very Central and close to some great restaurants and shops. NOTE: there is... More

Excellent location and clean facilities.The beds were uncomfortable and the breakfast extremely expensive, one would have expected something more for the money charged. The hotel cannot charge 4 star rates and offer 2 star facilities, with a little more effort the hotel can improve its offering - such as more comfortable beds, moisturizing cream as an amenity

Thankfully predictable Swiss efficiency and cleanliness. Would benefit from turning the lights up a bit, since hotel corridors, dining room and bedrooms were rather dim - was probably a fashionable feature when first designed! As I said, loved the hazelnuts next to the cereal on the breakfast buffet, allowing me to hoover up cereal with added protein before rushing out... More

I have been staying in this hotel regularly for the last 3.5 years. Great service, always attentive and polite. Rooms are spacious. Decor sometimes could look unfinished (for example, when you are in the bath and look under the sink - there are no tiles and it's not covered). Also you should take your own cream - this is never...

Dated design and could be quirky and fun but ends up just feeling dated and a little depressing. In two days the only member of staff I saw was the person at check in. I never found the gym, despite the hand made signs on several floors and I never was able to find anyone to ask. The front desk... More
