      • Very convenient location for access to the train station and Lausanne itself, of cOurse, is a nice place. Front desk is helpful, rooms are very clean.

        Unfriendly staff, extremely small bathroom.

      • The location was very good, the hotel was very nice, clean, comfortable and the price was very reasonable. The front desk was well versed, my room was very quiet and the share shower & toilet very clean, the breakfast was adequate, being typical continental. The waiter was entertaining in a basil fawtly kind of way.

        Noisy unfriendly staff and small, cramped bathroom. Not hot food.

      • Used on the metro, near railway station and a supermarket just a block away. Hotel stuff were polite and price was reasonable. Rooms were European style cozy and clean, staff were friendly. The bathroom was excellent and the breakfast was good.

        Some furnitures very outdated, the toilet was very cramped.

      • Good position for rail travellers, the hotel is conveniently located near the railroad station and the staff are friendly and helpful and laid back. The room are reasonably big.

        Very clean, wonderful location and price, my window opened up right to the train tracks, the service of reception needs to be improved. The bathroom is very tiny.

      • The location is perfect, just up street from the back exit of railway station and hotel is clean and staff were very helpful. The reception is polite and speaks good English, room design is impressive. Breakfast is fantastic.

        The old town and the lakeside area, poor customer service. Bedroom and bathroom fairly cramped, the top floor was very hot.

      • Location near the train station, quiet street and good restaurants nearby. Friendly staff and welcome, decent price. Pleasant lobby and great service.

        The reception area looks like a back office and is not very presentable as a reception area at all, immediate vicinity is a bit dodgy, hotel last renovated in the 70ies. The room is also small.
