Great hotel for a business trip
Nice hotel just in front of the train station. Perfect for a business trip.

A bit ordinary this time
I've stayed several times at this hotel and always loved it, but this time I got a room at the back which was quite small with a tiny shower room, and too hot, and without any view. The room also smelt strange. The staff were great and tried to sort it with a spray, but either the previous occupant had been smoking or had a strong body odour. So I didn't get my lovely view of the beautiful station. A bit disappointing this time, but still a good bed and clean room.

Convenient 2*hotel rated 4* across train station
Convenient location directly across from the train station. Not 4 star quality but it was advertised at a discount rate that would be appropriate for a 2 star hotel. Hotel needs a major renovation but of course with that would come increased price. Worth it for the convenience, small but clean and comfortable but definitely not 4 star.

Very helpful staff
The main reason I chose this hotel was for the convenience of location. It is right across from Lausanne station and nearby other convenient establishments such as Starbucks, ATMs, cafe, supermarket, and fast food. The staff was very pleasant and accommodated my early check-in, which I appreciate a lot. If I return to Lausanne I would definitely stay here again.

Only problem was mistaking the letters cal cafe - which one entered through the hotel reception area - for their breakfast room and having what I thought was my prepaid breakfast there.

Not luxury but all you need in a hotel room.
Well located by the station, Clean, functional, comfortable, good sound insulation and all you need in a hotel room. Only problem is that the curtains don't fully block outside light
