Stayed here on three separate times during a two week stay in Europe. The staff was the best of anywhere we have stayed. Had stayed at more luxurious hotels during this visit and last year's visit and this hotel is the best value and staff. The decor and amenities though a bit outdated are kept up well and more than...

The hotel location is just perfect, in front of the Gare de Lausanne, you can go walking around the city, but if you don't want to walk the hotel gives you a mobile card, so you don't pay the public transports. You can go to a great gym with modern equipaments just beside the hotel. I definetely go stay again...

I stayed here for one night. The staff was very friendly in both reception and the restaurant and I would give them an excellent rating. I was looking forward to getting a good nights sleep but the bed was really hard and it almost felt like sleeping on a floor with a really thin mattress. The room was also really...

The hotel is situated just in front of the Lausanne Railway station. It is 5minutes walk from the old town,10minutes walk to the Lake side. For those who don't like to walk,there is the possibility to take the metro,that is at 10steps from the hotel's main entrance. Under the hotel,there is a Starbucks cafe and Le Pain Quotidien.If you don't...

I was here for a 2 nights only, very good service, really satisfied but maybe the bed can be bit nicer ( larger as well) what shocked me a bit is to hv bibel and Budda's holy books availability on the room, ( I'm not so sure it's kept by hotel authority) I think better to avoid religious elements

The hotel is okay. The room and the breakfast were nice, but not amazing. The service was good. So was the location, next to the train station. This is an ordinary hotel to a high price. It is expensive, compared to hotels in many other European cities. I would stay here again for business travel if I could not find...

I came to Lausanne on business and wanted to keep things simple. I initially found Hotel Continental via Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. I admit, I'm typically a Hilton Property girl and do not often stray. However, the location and simple accommodations were spot on. Located directly across from the train station, you can't beat it....

Good points - Location is great if you are using the train. Clean tidy and comfortable rooms with a great shower. Excellent gym next door with access for guests. Decent breakfast buffet.

Just had a great visit to Lausanne with 3 nights at this supremely conveniently located property. I had a morning flight out of Geneva and wanted something very close to the train station.

I was recently in Lausanne for work at CHUV for the week.
