Excellent location within 5 minutes walk of main railway station for a convenient stopping point in a long distance high speed rail journey (say, London to Rome) and also next door to metro station for ease of travel down to the lake or up to the old town (it is a very steep gradient for walking) Rooms are modernist,and somewhat...

The title of this review will sum up everything for you in case you do not want to continue reading :) This hotel is located bang across the train station. You literally walk out of the train station, cross the road and walk in to the hotel. It is THAT conveniently located. First time travelers to Lausanne will find this...

We stayed 2 nights, loved the location and overall hotel. The staff was kind and friendly after we said in french "Bon Jour" (then asking "Parlez vous d'Anglais?) Perfectly situated between train and metro. Big Hint-read about the square footage of the different rooms and pay a little more for a few more feet. You'd be amazed at the difference,...

You couldn't ask for a better location in Lausanne than this one if you are traveling by train. You walk out of the train station, cross the street and walk into the hotel. The metro is right next door so getting around the city is extremely easy. We stayed there for 4 nights in May 2013 -- we asked for...

Stayed there with friends. The hotel is on the same plaza as the train station - very convenient. The metro is the next door, but it's also in a walking distance from all the main attractions. The room is nice an clean. Free internet (also weird Swiss provider that require you to open a separate window on the computer each...

located just in front of the railway station. the hotel is clean and nice. the basic room is really small. the restaurant is a bit expensive.the hotel could have an "excellent" with a better price. free nespresso at the floor. the rooms facing the station and the road are a bit noisy.

Right across from the station, good check-in experience. Room overlooking station, but not noisy. Major problem with in-room safe - would not work. Prompt attention by staff, but even he could not fix, despite trying several "fixes". Offered change of room to one with working safe, but none with view available, so lived with non-functioning safe. Single room was adequate,...

The hotel is well located just in front of the main railway station and walking distance from the old town. The breakfast is quite decent and I loved their huge nespresso machine. On the other hand, my biggest issue with this hotel was the really hard and unconfortable bed, as well as non adjustable room temperature. I totally agree with...

Arrived 9pm to find room +25C, told the air conditioning had been turned-off for the summer and if I wanted to cool the room then open the window...when over looking the busiest street in Lausanne! It was like sleeping in a sauna! Don't stay at this hotel!

Dear Sir, Following your comments and our phone conversation, I would like once more to underline how sorry I am for the bad experience you had during the night you’ve stayed in our Hotel! It’s true that the air-conditioning was not working as according to the weather forecast the temperature should not go over 15C. Independently to that, our staff...
