I'd ceratinly stay here again

Would recommend Tue, Jul 21, 2015
I had a very good experience and would definitely stay here again. I arrived in Lausanne by boat and left by train, and the hotel is great for this scenario. Even though I chose to walk to the hotel from the lake (15 mins on a pedestrian promenade), one can take the metro at lakeside right to the door of the hotel. I had a warm welcome and every feature of the hotel was clearly explained to me. I speak good French, but everyone at reception also appeared to speak English. I had a single rm w/a a queen bed. The mattress was firm, but I was fine with it. My room faced the beautiful old train station directly across the street -- as close as one can get -- with mountain views in the distance. Restaurants/shops/post office also near. Yes, the rm was small, but compact and well arranged. There was a desk and chair, good closet space, and a large, clean new bathrm. The frig was slow to get cold, but when I asked for ice (twice) it was brought to me immediately. Wifi was fine. AC was good. I didn't watch the cable TV. The hotel was VERY quiet, and I was there over Fri-Sat nights. I particularly appreciated the 12 noon check out. Hotel gives guests free transit passes for the duration of their stay. After my experience in Geneva where I paid much more and got much less, this hotel was a pleasure as well as a good value. I'd say go for it...

Well worth its 4-star billing, this is a very professional and well looked after hotel. Centrally located, across the road from the central train station.

Good location, great value

Would recommend Mon, Jun 18, 2012
Directly across train station from Lausanne. Location cannot be beat as you are right between lake and old town. You can walk anywhere in town or take the Metro which is right below the hotel. Staff cannot be more friendly and helpful. Will return again if in the area.

Money saver

Unlimited pass for public transportation in Lausanne is included with all rates.
