I had a studio for 3 days, with a kitchen area, closet, bed, and desk in one large room. The decor was no more sophisticated than a college dorm room, but everything I needed was there; the bed was quite comfortable, the room clean, the shared bathroom and shower close by and never busy when I needed them. The location... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was only 3 min walk from where our workshop took place, so we really appreciated it. Rooms are very basic, clean.

Good point : Friendly and helpful staffs Bad points: Leaking water pipe. After using the sink, the floor is totally wet. Shower area is very small.

I stayed here twice (before and after a conference, held elsewhere). I'd stay here again & definitely recommend the hotel. Clean & friendly. Very reasonable considering very convenient location, just 350 meters from the Metro station of Riponne (just 2 stops from the main Lausanne Gare, railway station). For example, just one stop to Lausanne Flon, then connect to another... More

The room was clean and cozy. The shared bathroom was not working, neither the tap inside the room, so they moved me to an ensuite without charging more. Guess the staff is the highlight, very friendly and effective.

We stayed only one night since we were only passing through Lausanne.
