Reviewed yesterday NEW

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...

I have spent two nights in a very clean single bedroom. The staff is amazing, kind and ready to assist you with anything. They even give you a travel card which can be used for all the public transportation in Lausanne for the time of your stay. The continental breakfast is outstanding, quality product, Nespresso machine. I was warned my...

The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. This is a positive. What else can I say that's positive? Well its in a good location opposite the main train station and the metro, and for Switzerland it wasn't overly expensive for a room. Ah the room - very dated, the bathroom was tiny. The room itself felt grubby...

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.

Switzerland is expensive - VERY expensive - so the price we paid for two nights in the Continental was very reasonable at around £90/night. The location is ideal - right across the road from the main train station, but we were a little surprised that the gym and Le Pain Quotidien mentioned on the hotel's website were actually separate businesses...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback in TripAdvisor, following your recent stay in our Hotel.

A few days before my stay, the Hotel's GM dropped me an email wishing me a pleasant stay and don't hesitate to contact him if there's any feedback. "One of those" standard, auto-generated electronic direct mail was my response when I read it. I checked in after a few days of receiving the eDM. I was unhappy and troubled with...

I stayed in Hotel Continental for more than one month. It's just opposite to Lausanne gare (rail station).Staffs were extremely helpful. I used to seek for their help whenever I receive any official letter in French; and they happily translated them in to English.

The location right opposite the main train and metro stations is fantastic. Reception personnel exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was rather small, but clean and functional, with little extras. Liked the soap / showergel in the big dispensers. Little let-downs were that the room was quite hot and the wifi quite slow. However, I felt comfortable enough and will...
