Hôtel great - some staff rude
The hotel itself is great. Location is central, it’s comfortable and the breakfast was very good. However, I had a run in with the night reception worker over the hotels policy of not allowing me to pay for both rooms in one transaction. I explained each international transaction had an added cost. He was incredibly rude and told me this was not at all possible. However, the woman in the morning had no issue and took the payment in total. I have no idea why the night receptionist was so rude or unwilling to take a full payment all at once, but it’s enough to make me not want to go back.

Clean Hotel with small room
We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2019. The hotel is very close to train and metro station so conveniently located. The room we stayed was clean but very small with little to no place to open big bags. The breakfast was very average.

otle Elite
the hotel and staff was very accomodating. We needed assistance for a couple of items and they responded very quickly. Good location for getting to the train station and the lake front.

Fantastic location with genuine charm
Elite is in a great location, literally 5 minutes walk from the meto and main train station. First impressions was that it needs updating, but I actually found my stay there very comfortable. Shower was good; bed was comfortable; room was quiet. The staff were friendly and patient. Breakfast was really nice, with excellent coffee. I found some nice restaurants within 15 minute walk, plus due to proximity of the metro, even the restaurants by the lake are within 15-20 minutes door-to-door. I would happily stay here again.

Comfortable, with superb city access
Superb staff makes a wonderful stay; nicely located near the center and steps away from the metro and train station; hearty breakfast. I liked the spacious room and was even able to park my car here for the entire stay :) It's an older building with a little wear showing here and there, but that gives the place a nice charm.

Great find!
This small hotel was a great find! Our room was small but had everything we needed. The breakfast was good. The location was perfect for walking Lausanne. Having free parking in the middle of a big city was a bonus. It was very quiet. We were able to watch the fireworks over Lake Geneva from our room on the Swiss National Holiday.

Centrally located hotel in beautiful city
Nice hotel, however decor is quite dated and rooms are quite small - even for a single room. Wood panelling on all walls make the room seem smaller probably - bathroom is straight out of the 70s - but the bed was comfortable enough

Quiet and Close to Train Station
This hotel is just a block from the train station, and on a super quiet street. If you arrive by train, it's just minutes away - but up stairs. Take the stairs directly in front of the station or go to the left and take the street on the right up and around if you prefer to wheel your suitcase. Hotel advantages: - Rooms are extremely quiet. My room had a double door to seal out any hallway noise, it feels like there's nobody else around. - Spacious rooms - Breakfast included - Front desk personnel are very helpful and friendly Other comments: - Breakfast is adequate. Boiled eggs, cold cuts, cereals, fruit salad, yogurts and a wide variety of bread and pastries. - Decor is traditional. -Old style room key system. - Superior room was spacious and had a terrace

Dated but lovely and clean!
The decor is dated (think 1970s walking holiday) but it’s incredibly clean and very comfortable. Convenient location close to the station and tube. Nice breakfast and very reasonably priced for Switzerland.
