The hotel is not expencive, that is why the rooms are not so big, but very clean. there is a hair dryer in the bathroom. The breakfast is good. there is a floor with toy-railway and a car crush,...

I hve looked for a hotel to have good reviews, triple rooms and at a fair price. I have found this one and need to say that although it is a little bit expensive, it was a good choice. The receptionist was really nice and gave us a lot of needed Information, we had our room before 15.00 as it...

The hotel is very near to Lausanne train station. I stayed last january 10th to 16th ,2016. Breakfast is good . There are varieties of food but they don't have pure vegeterian noddles or any chicken items. I don't eat pork or beef.

Sweet tiny hotel with the smallest rooms ever. I could see inside the trains passing by my window. But, I loved my time in town and eating on the sidewalk cafes and wandering around. I was alone and found everything I needed and got back on the train bright and early!

You get off the train and if you miss the hotel, it is your fault. The hotel is basically at the train station. This is a no-frills-room-for-the-night sort of hotel. You get a bed, shower, toilet. No breakfast. Pastry and coffee shops nearby are OK but you can do better in other cities. Overall just a blaw experience. You will...

We stayed at the Hotel AlaGare for three nights; we chose the hotel for price and location, since we were doing day trips by train and it was a half block from the station. We had two rooms. Switzerland was in the middle of an unusual- heat wave, with termperatures in the high 80s and even hitting 90. One room...

Booked a room for a two nights stay. Central location, but so close to the train station that it feels like the trains are in your room. There was no working AC and the room smelled like sewage. We left the room at 3am and booked a room at another hotel to actually get some sleep. Not recommended.

No reception at night! The room smelled cloak, and it was incredebly hot! No AC! This was summertime, so maybe It's better in the winter? The train passed by our window just 10 meters away, and it was impossible to sleep! It was claustrophobic! We had to move to another Hotel the same night, it was impossible to sleep there!
