Had booked 2 rooms and not much effort was made to at least have one room ready on time so we could have a quick shower to go to a meeting. When booking, was under the impression that it was closer to town but had about 15 minutes drive and this was an inconvenience. Very compact hotel with small rooms... More

Stayed here 4 nights, during a seminar. The hotel is very basic, including gym and food. Still clean and the hotel shuttle connects you to Lausanne if needed. Quite convenient if going to EPFL or surrounding areas.

This is a very pleasant hotel - it has good sized rooms and an outdoor area to sit/eat with great views. The breakfast has great options and they give you a travel card that allows free public transport on the metro. There is also a convenient, complimentary shuttle service to the city.

This is a very decent and trendy hotel - better than we expected. The room was spacious but the bathroom and toilet felt weird - may be suitable for one person or couple only, not suitable even if you have 1 child as the bathroom and toilet have glass doors with no locks. Also no place to change clothes in... More
