Very good value for money. The interior is dated but the bedrooms are very comfortable. The hotel is centrally located. The upper floor rooms provide beautiful views of Lake Geneva. Many restaurants nearby.

This hotel provides excellent value for money. The interior is dated but the bedrooms are very comfortable, providing all the amenities needed. The breakfast is very good and included in the room price. The staff are polite and professional. Free parking in central Lausanne is an added bonus.

I selected the Elite mainly for its price and proximity to the Railway Station and the fact that the Metro was even closer which made it very convenient to travel the few stops to the lake and thus also to board cruises for various destinations around beautiful Lake Geneva. On the map however it couldn't show me the relatively short... More

The Hotel Elite is lovely, clean, quiet, comfortable and centrally located. If you book ahead, you may be able to get one of their upper floor rooms with beautiful views of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva). Staff is professional, friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is elegant and the selection extensive. I would definitely stay here again if I return to... More

The room was clean. Be very careful in the shower because the tub has a curve in the back and can be very slippery. It looks like this hotel was a converted home or something in the past. The rooms are okay but not a wow. It is in a good location to the train but is a bit of... More

Good location. Just steps away from the main drag, Metro and train stations , yet quiet! This made it very easy to explore the whole of Lausanne without getting worn out. We noticed many people in wheelchairs and kids in strollers getting around very easily using the Metro which takes you all the way up to explore the old section... More

I was heartily glad to glimpse the red and white sign of the Hotel Elite along a side street to the right as I hiked up the hill with my bag from the railway station on a warm sunny day in June. It’s not a long hike but it sure is steep! The alternative is to lug your bag up... More

This hotel is ideally located within walking distance of the station and metro. The check in was friendly, helpful and efficient Our room was very clean with a comfortable bed and modern bathroom - everything we required. This was an excellent find and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to couples or families.

We stayed here for a cycle event. The rooms are very clean, and the staff let us keep our bikes in the room, which was extremely trusting of them. The hotel is just above the train station. Advice would be to get a room facing the back if you can, as noise can be heard late into the night from... More
