We just came out of the station and walked a few yards to this clean friendly hotel. We are on the top floor with a balcony facing the lake- great view! Quiet, well appointed and reasonable - what more can you ask for! We had a family room and it was very spacious and comfy. Would recommend ++

Spent 3 nights of our 12 day holiday at this hotel and had a fabulous stay. We were having trouble getting a family room at the hotels by the lake (for the view) as we booked very last minute but can't complain after the service we received here. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They were always ready to...

It's a historical hotel with a friendly staff, a great location (close the the lake, and the town center, next to the train station) and the rooms are great and comfortable. it's definitely a great stay in Lausanne.

Well centered next to the railway station and top floor rooms have a nice view onto the lake but the hotel is very noisy. Even if stated on the website, that windows were replaced the noises from the trains, busses and the street are very loud. Same with AC: so the options are: open windows and noise from the street...

For the price, this is an excellent hotel. The location across from the train station is incredibly convenient for train travelers. Hotel gives free local transit cards, a good assistance when going to the main tourist locations which are either a ways uphill (cathedral) or downhill (lakefront). I had a bit of trouble with the air conditioning (operated by a...

Right near bus terminal NO parking. But they have a system that allows one of their employees to park the car for you at the public parking which is 12.50 francs. It's centrally located that not easy to get to if you Drive. You'll have to park temporarily and then once you check in they actually move your car to...

We were going to a concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival and due to flight out of Geneva the next day we chose this hotel for a quick stay. Across the street is the railway station which is about halfway. The hotel is just fine for what we did. The staff was good, breakfast was good and the rooms had...

We arrived at the hotel late and were sent next door to a restaurant to eat. The food was awful and it was suffocatingly hot with fans not working. Our room was tiny. The shower was not clean and it was difficult to get it to work. One night there was more than enough. The breakfast was ok but not...
