Rather run-down and not very clean
Hotel is rather run-down and a bit dirty. The welcome was warm, but the service at breakfast was not. Breakfast was adequate.
Mary Ann, ie1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Booked it because it is close to the station. It was the worst stay in Switzerland by far : dust all over the room ( left with an allergy crisis; last one was years ago....), the floor cleaning was done with dirty water, which left an horrible odor in the room, reception told me the breakfast was not included and had to prove it to correct it, they claimed the key when I already given it and said I will receive an email if they cannot find it.. ( thanks for basically making me feel like I am a liar and a stealer), the check-in took a while (even though 2 people were at the reception...)

Awesome Stay at Lausanne
Overall a pleasant stay. We enjoyed having breakfast in the breakfast area and was thrilled & excited on the model train displayed on the floor covered with glass top which you can walk on it. The receptionists are very helpful and friendly.

Location is conenience
It is nearby the train station, about 3 mins walk without suitcase). Room is clean, but the washroom is too tiny. Breakfast has various choices that makes the day more valuable.

Nice, clean, comfortable spot, walking distance from the train station. The gentleman at the front desk switched our room from a king to two twin beds. Breakfast was very good. It was a nice stay.

Conveniently located, charming hotel
Conveniently located right next to the train station. I was worried that the sounds of the train would be a problem but I babtely heard them. The front desk was eager to assist us in any way possible - giving is directions and suggestions for meals. The free breakfast was in an attached charming, train themed dining room - and the food was plentiful and delicious. Great coffee too (which is a must for me). We also received free metro passes as part of our stay which we took advantage of.

Good price for good location.
Very convenient location half way between lake and old city areas, and right by train and metro links for getting around (with no noise issues!). Helpful staff. Great continental breakfast. Our standard room was a little 'tired', but perfectly functional and adequate, and we had no complaints considering the price we paid. We would definitely be happy to stay here again.
