We enjoyed the breakfast spread, it had plenty of variety. There are several spaces throughout the hotel to relax. And it's close to the train station.

Great family location
Great location, and free public transport offered for the length of stay. Easy to access downtown and very clean, the bed was a little hard and the pillows worn down to almost flat, but overall very good value for money.

Best Holidays in Hospital with Great Hospitality.
It was great experience to stay. It was surprising by name Des patient, but when we just went in find it's a hospital.!!! But it has very good ambience and very nice spacious airy room. We got a room with huge balcony from where we could able to see Lake Geneva. Breakfast was good. Will like to stay again.

Very clean and pleasant hotel. Lovely breakfast buffet included with croissants, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and cold meats and a good coffee machine. Very tranquil.

Exceptional 10.0
It was our second stay and it was really lovely. We requested a room change for one with a view of the lake and the staff were helpful. The wifi however needs some improvement, but overall we enjoyed our stay.

Great hotel for young children
Excellent experience They accommodated our requests (beds, room location) Perfect stay for those with your children. Restaurant menu is short but the 3 course meal is excellent value. (You forget the odd patient (oncology and maternity) after your first meal in the restaurant.)

3 days in Lausanne
Only realised post checking in that this hotel was shared with the local hospitals as a recuperation centre which is a first for us, which I think is a great idea, the only thing I would say is that should be stated on hotels.Com website so it's more obvious, The room was lovely clean and spacious, penthouse room overlooking lake geneva, great location for the metro to the rest of the town which is free during your stay, great position to get to Geneva and Montreux, parking available on site with a charge, staff were friendly and very helpful, breakfast included which had a great continental choice, would stay again in a heartbeat.
