They tried to go for the modern look and overdid it. There was a door on the room that opens to the garden. This door has an inclination, which makes it extremely hard to shut. It took me 4 tries to finally close it and latch it and I am 6 feet 2 inches tall and weigh over 97 kg....

I have stayed here three times now and like the fact that most of the bedrooms open up to a large courtyard which has a fountain so with the window open you have a nice sound. The rooms are quite spacious Nice bed TV now has loads of channels and for the first time in Switzerland I had Sky news,...

I chose this Hotel for its central location and reserved through their web-site. The price was ok and I did not really expect too much. The reception was kind, but the staff is quite young (students?) and inexperienced, not to say incompetent. I had mentioned my desire for a non smoking room and ended up in the third floor -...

We used the hotel as an overnight stop on the way to Venice by train , so as to take advantage of the scenery en-route. In terms of proximity to the station , you could not be closer - although when you have been on a TGV for 4 hours in summer temperatures, getting up that hill with a case...

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. The hotel is great itself and has a modern, luxurious feel, it is located close to the city rail station and metro 5, only minutes uphill. So this is convenient if your travelling to neighbouring cities. It has nice, modern architecture Our room was very comfortable and spacious with definitely a positive...

This hotel, although modern and located uphill a block from the train station, is overpriced if you consider that they charge extra for wireless internet in the room. Besides, no complementary breakfast included (it costs you an extra $50 for two!). There is not much to do in Lausanne, so we shortened our stay to one night. I recommend you...

We stayed at this hotel in conjunction with a Cosmos Train Tour of Switzerland. The hotel is definitely a 4 star with many amenities including an iron and ironing board which many other 4 star listed hotels on the tour didn't have. The breakfast was very good. Unfortunately it was pouring rain when we were there so we didn't get...

I had been booked into this hotel for one night for business. I read the other reviews and was dreading it. However, it was easy to find, modern and welcoming. The room itself was big, bright and airy and above all clean. I spent a very comfortable night there, and the self-service breakfast was good. The only negative thing I...

I was really disappointed by this supposed 4 stars hotel. They gave me room 112... avoid the first floor, it is a smoking floor, the carpets are dirty. In the room , same thing: the carpets were also dirty, the doors of the closet were missing (why??) and worst of all it was stinking the smoke. I asked another room...
