I stayed in Hotel Continental for more than one month. It's just opposite to Lausanne gare (rail station).Staffs were extremely helpful. I used to seek for their help whenever I receive any official letter in French; and they happily translated them in to English.

The location right opposite the main train and metro stations is fantastic. Reception personnel exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was rather small, but clean and functional, with little extras. Liked the soap / showergel in the big dispensers. Little let-downs were that the room was quite hot and the wifi quite slow. However, I felt comfortable enough and will again book in the Continental when for business in Lausanne.

We stayed in this hotel overnight, it is very convenient for the railway station, we didn't eat in the hotel in the evening but did have breakfast there which was very nice. The hotel was very quiet so we got a good night's sleep.

sometimes, arriving late in a city we just wont to arrive quickly in a central place and rest. this hotel is situated in front of the station, let say 5 minutes and you are there. if you look at the rate before living other city of upon arrival without reservation, you could always ask for the daily special and you will receive a special rate. the hotel is quite, the room a small but comfortable and what I appreciate most very quite. you will also receive a pass for free transportation for the time you stay there an economy of some 10 francs.

I had stayed here as second time. I had chosen this hotel because it is opposite the central station and beside Metro station and comfortable room. If we have chance to go back there, I will choose this hotel certainly.

We had booked two standard rooms for the family and were assigned two spacious rooms on the 5th floor (top floor I think)... one overlooking the train station, other overlooking the back streets. Rooms were much more spacious than other reviews might suggest so I assume they have a mix of room sizes and we lucked out. Door between bath/shower and toilet was nice and amenities were good (plenty of soap etc.) and included slippers. Fridge was stocked with water and coke which was free of charge. Additional drinks could be requested/stocked from the front desk (at a charge). WiFi worked well and television had channels in many languages from many countries. The room decor did feel a little dated however and could do with redecoration. We stayed two nights primarily to visit friends and selected this hotel for its proximity to the train station as we had an early start on last day to get train to GVA airport. In that respect location cannot be better. Like some other Swiss cities, the hotel provided free tickets for local public transport (busses and trains) and free access to a fitness center (same building) was available though we did not use that. Altogether I would highly recommend this hotel.

My parents had an awesome experience in this very central hotel right next to Lausanne gare. Prices are rather affordable (especially for Switzerland), and clerks were extremely helpful. I strongly encourage tourist to try this hotel.

I stayed with my family two nights in this beautiful hotel. Not only the central location of this typical swiss hotel makes it best choice for the family travelers but also the professional service makes you really feel like at home. Quick professional check in, friendly staff, clean rooms, big buffet breakfast. The hotel has a modern fitness center, which I didn't know, was a pleasant surprise for me. we got a room on fifth flour with a nice view. Fifth flour has a coffee machine as well, which is 2 hours on your disposal,if you are a guest in this beautiful hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel for both family and business travelers as well. Thank you all the staff for making our stay memorable.

On two days (over a weekend) we did NOT have teas,coffees,cups,shower gel replaced and had to go ask for these at reception. We too would have liked an extra pillow..but we were given the choice of feather or synthetic when we asked at reception. Breakfasts gave a good selection (for us). Hotel is very well situated for both the railway station and the Metro.Reception staff were very helpful in recommending places to eat in the evening.

This hotel has a very convenient location opposite the main station in Lausanne, although this location also meant that in the evening there was a lot of noise from the street. My room was clean and functional although I found the bed very hard and uncomfortable. The staff member I talked to was very friendly and helpful.
