    a fairly basic hotel. the location is great, very close to the railway station and the big cathedral. the room is clean. very good breakfast and really nice and helpful staff (they speak English!)

    no free wifi, you have to pay 5CHF per day, though there are free computers with internet connection on each floor

  • Single

    central location.

    I understand that Switzerland can be expensive, but I felt that even though the hotel was nice enough, I was paying more money than it was worth. I have stayed in higher standard hotels for the same price, if not less.

    The porter was very friendly, the room was a good size. There is a balcony available at breakfast with a lovely view. Also very central location for exploring Lausanne. Good WiFi in the room.

    It was 50 metres from my conference

    Breakfast was very basic

    Good situation with balcony and fine views over the lake and the old city. Good restaurant nearby.Good breakfast but no aircon.

  • Older travelers

    It was close to the metro stop. The staff were helpful. The bathroom was clean and nicely tiled.

    The carpet and wallpaper were stained. The shower was tiny with a shower curtain that clung to me. The neighborhood was somewhat seedy and noisy. The parking garage was 2 blocks away with extremely narrow spaces.

  • Group of friends

    Staff is ever so kind and helpful (provided map + detailed information on how to get to a hard-to-find location, granted free internet access for 1 hour, friendly and accommodating in breakfast room, kept bags secure after checkout while we went shopping). Got a room with the most beautiful view of the old town roofs, cathedrals, with snow capped mountains and lake in the background. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast/buffet has a wide selection of fresh breads, fresh fruits, jams, teas, cheese, juices and more -incredible and super yummy! Fast internet connection. Super clean and they charge less if only one person stays in a double room. Great situation at the heart of the old town, shops and amenities all close by. Small and perfectly formed, they truly set an example!

  • Family with children

    Good location, at the center of town. Fine breakfast with fresh orange juice and nice coffee.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Breakfast, cleanness of the room and friendly staff.

    Location is a bit dodgy in the evenings.

  • Older travelers

    Its closeness to metro and all sites of interest.

  • Family with children
    2.8

    I liked absolutly nothing....

    We are a family of 4 and picked up this hotel to accomidate us all. However every thing was soooo bad my kids hated the beautiful city of lausanne because of the terrible shape and area of the hotel. So much noise, homless people every where, stincky smells, horobale towels, old furniture... Never again. Paid 690 swiss franks for 2 nights only.
