very organized and comfortable to stay. the staffs are also very collaborative and responds to the needs . The three days of my stay were amazing. I could easily travel to all the places as the location is very suitable for staying.
Location close to train station (5 min walk). No reception, but via phone 24/7 available. No facilities, only vending machine for drinks and snacks. Rooms are somewhat dated, but clean and OK. No airco, but fan is provided in room. Coffee and tea facilities in room, basket with croisants at entrance door in the morning are offered. Safe and refridgerator in the room. Given hotelprices in CH, reasonable value for money in the city centre of Lausanne.
I booked via booking for 4 days in June 2019, long time after I got a mail that they had troubles in charging my credit card and I had 24 hours to solve the problem. I phoned them asking for 26 hours (my credit card reached the monthly limit, and in 26 hours a new month would have started), and they refused. I had to fight on the phone to get the 24 hours that had been promised, I solved the issue in half an hour, and they cancelled my booking anyway. I phoned, they refused to restore my booking, and said the booking had been cancelled by booking.com. I phoned booking.com, which contacted the hotel asking to restore the booking, but the hotel again refused. The reason was that IMMEDIATELY after having checked my card they have made again the room available (probably at higher price), and it had been booked soon afterwards. They had not waited for the 24 hours, not even for one hour. Booking.com did his good job, and helped me finding a different hotel. Btw, the hotel left me with no room, knowing that I was travelling with my wife and my two daughters, of 6 years and 4 months, and that most of Lausanne was booked at this point.
The hotel is 5 min by foot from the train station. The self check-in works well without hassles. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Bathroom was also clean. The hotel belongs to the same group as Hotel a la gare. They were kind enough to store our luggage until 5pm. Also, we received a city day pass for the public transport, which was also very useful. The hotel is a very good choice for a budget and good value for the money you pay.
Old style building Very clean with all amenities Fast check in City transport card Nearby metro/sbb Beautiful park at walking distance Use of smartphone with internet and free calls throughout stay Free croissants! Yum! France 30 minutes by cruise Competitive price. Can't fault it - perfect for our short stay before going on to Interlaken
this hotel is located close to the train station which is a plus. check in: very interesting, you have to buzz and someone answers you through a voice machine. you are buzzed in and answer the phone. there is no face to face contact. you are given a code to get your key. room: we stayed in room 402 Hollywood Boulevard: ita a decent sized 1 bedroom apartment. the furniture needs a massive upgrade. the decorations of the room dont complement the ambience. no sofa, but there is a mattress and 3 chairs and a tiny tv bathroom: clean, good size. the pressure of the shower is not the best and it takes a bit to warmup. small kichenette only 1 window that opens, attic apartment
The pluses- lovely top floor room - spacious and clean. Modern bathroom. The minuses- No shower curtain! I had my own lake of Geneva on the floor in the morning after I washed my hair. Phone didn’t work when I tried to call and ask for a shower curtain: especially annoying since there is no front desk onsite. Room was way too hot, had to sleep with windows open. The automated checkin was very slow, I must have waited in the vestibule for 10 mins before someone called. Instant coffee in the room, no options for a real cuppa without leaving building. Had to walk to their other hotel to get the transportation pass, was not provided in my room. I wouldn’t stay again. Hospitality was not a high priority.
Electronic check-in worked perfectly! Room was nice and comforable, clean and quiet, in spite of being conveniently close to the main train station of Lausanne. Check-out procedure was as easy as checking in. All in all a perfect experience!
The hotel is more of a residence, and quite modest. The room as such was fine, but I would like to rather have some personnel than a phone number. The location is fine, some traffic noice at the street side, and the train station just a 5 minute walk away. In the street some restaurants and a larger food shop some 500 meters away,
Our only quibble was the distance we had to cover (300m) to get our breakfast in the morning (from our building to the La Gare hotel). Otherwise, the accommodation was great and the staff very friendly. Each morning we were greeted in our lobby by a large tray full of fresh yummy croissants. Which was a nice touch. The open buffet breakfast at the hotel near the station was awesome. To cut a long story short, I would gladly renew the experience given the opportunity.
