Other than a good central location close to the train station, there isn't a lot to get excited about in this hotel. It's extremely basic. I had a dreadful nights sleep when the assigned me two small uncomfortable twin beds, badly joined together. As an individual business traveler, I wanted and booked for a King Room and would have expected a King bed - even a Queen would have been fine - just not twins!! The breakfast the next morning was poor, I also had lunch in the little bar beside reception which was also poor. The hotel was dated and over priced, though arguably that's the same with a lot of places in Switzerland. Front Office staff were pleasant and helpful.

This is a great, comfortable place to stay when you are in Lausanne for business. I frequently travel and stay at the Mirabeau, and highly recommend it as a good value. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and relatively new. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are always clean. You can certainly always spend more money, but the Mirabeau is a great value. The bar has a nice selection, and more importantly, the breakfast in the restaurant is an excellent selection and value. All together, highly recommended!

I stayed for 2 weeks in this hotel for the month of March 2017 . This hotel is very close to Lausanne railway station (walking distance) . You can go to city center even by walk though you need to take a road which is going up , so if you are not habituated then avail bus . Bus stop is just 30 sec walk from Hotel . Hotel provide free bus pass and you can travel almost in all location of the city using the same . Hotel stuffs are really helpful and 24/7 available . Its a 4 star standard hotel . Rooms are pretty clean and having standard size. Room service is pretty quick and available until 10 PM . Its a overall small and nice hotel . Hotel breakfast also good and also having many varieties.

Had a wonderful stay for business last week at the Best Western Mirabeau. The front desk staff were excellent, friendly, and very helpful with storing my baggage on the first/last days of my trip. The breakfast in the mornings was delicious - I just wish I had more time! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is the showers are a bit difficult to maneuver - but that's more a European thing and less a "this hotel" thing - and there's no gym or exercise facilities. But that's also not their fault :) Overall, excellent hotel with old-school charm. Loved the upgrade upon arrival and had a charming room with a glimpse of the lake. Will book again if back in Lausanne!

The Best Western Plus Hotel Mirabeau may not be the cheapest hotel/redtaurant in Lausanne but in my opinion you receive a lot for your money. I stayed in a room with lake view with a big bathroom with tub and a very comfortable bed - even the pillows were very good to sleep on. Everything was very clean and I had the impression that the whole room was renovated not too long ago. Because of the style of the hotel there was fitted carpet in the room which can be a bit difficult if you are allergic. But as said before: the style of the hotel would be broken if there was laminate floor or sth like that in the rooms. The hotel lies on a street very close to the main station and also just a 5-10 minutes walk from the city center with all the sights. I would recommend to spend a little more money to have a room to the backside. The restaurant has a great service and for dinner the ambience is very calm and kind of elegant and charming with the big chimney which is fired during winter. You can easily see that all the ingredients are fresh and of high quality from the starter salad to the great mousse au chocolat as dessert. So if you want to have a special dinner the restaurant of the hotel is highly recommended. Last but not least the breakfast: as kind of standard for a 4 star hotel you will find nearly everything on the buffet what you are looking for. For hotel guests the breakfast is included in the room rate so enjoy it! You can have different müesli, fruit, joghurt, different bread and rolls, pain au chocolat, salmon, scrambled eggs and if you ask for also fresh made omelettes and so on. All in all the hotel is really great and I would love to stay there again.

The hotel is an easy walk from central Lausanne station but be prepared to walk uphill to get to the city center. It's about equal distance to the lake, too. We had a nice large room with a balcony that would be great for a summer stay. The bathroom was a bit disappointing with only a small shower. Breakfast was great with lots of choices hot and cold. The breakfast staff was extremely proficient and nice. There were several english television stations. I got the flu while we were at the hotel and I want to extend a sincere thank you for allowing us a very late check out on departure day. We will definitely stay again when we return to Lausanne.

The hotel is located between the lake and the city centre and both is therefore really easy to reach by feet as long you are able to walk steep stairs and streets because the city itself is completely hilly. The whole building is old and really impressive from the outside but from the inside as well. The interior is very tasteful and classic, the rooms are quite big and luxurious and the staff is helpful and professional! The garage costs around 25 € for a night and is to find on the opposite side of the street.

The hotel is only a 5 min walk from the main train station and all of the shops, cafes and restaurants in the heart of Lausanne. Perfect for my weekend trip, the room was very spacious and maintained to a high standard! Breakfast was included and did not disappointed - great variety of food and really good coffee. Staff were also very friendly and check-in was very smooth and quick. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend staying in this hotel.

5 min walk to the gare and a decent place to stay. Old world feel to the rooms, which could be modernised. A a relatively simple, but enjoyable breakfast, for the price (which is expensive, but only because it is switzerland).

A very nice Hotel if you stay in Lausanne, it is very close to the train station (~400m) and within walking distance to the lake or the cathedral and the shopping streets. Service is very friendly and helpful, Reception is great and very helpful as well. Internet access is free and fast, I never had a problem with it. The facilities are clean and the Hotel is very charming. Rooms are clean, some are a little bit small, bathrooms are clean and newly renovated it seems. The only thing bothering me is always the curtain around the shower as you are flooding the bathroom. There is no real rim between floor and shower. Breakfast is very good, they offer a great variety, even salmon. You also get free public transport within the city during the lenght of your stay. Anyway I am there at least three times a year and it is the Hotel of my choice, and I've seen a few there..
