                  • Nice view to the cathedral, decent hotel and the lady at the reception was extremely kind and professional. Room was apparently clean, breakfast was pretty good.

                    Very used bed linen and just a crumby old bar of soap. Poor wireless connection.

                  • Near the City Center and nice stuff. The price was good and staff were friendly. The bathroom was also spacious.

                    Unfortunately the hotel is of a 2 star quality and rooms are rather old.

                  • The location is excellent, the kindness and efficiency of the hotel staff, the spacious room that looks out on the city.

                    Not worth the money you have to spend here.

                  • Great location and view, many TV stations. Good value for money and friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable, the waitress was kind.

                    No air conditioning in rooms made very uncomfortable given the humidity of the city, the price of the hotel was much too high and tub curtain was not clean. Poor breakfast that was cold.

                  • The location is very good, metro as well as bus station are outside of the hotel's door and the staff is friendly. The rooms are clean.

                    The decor is very outdated, also the breakfast is very expansive and nothing to write home about, price wise is a bit expensive. S interior is quite old and no hot water jug for tea making.

                    Rude staff ruin could be a fair hotel.

                    Bad hotel in good location, shower curtain and rest of the room was not much better.

                  • Great location to visit the city of Lausanne, the breakfast is good, the place you have breakfast is awesome.

                    This hotel is in need of renovation, its far to expensive for its class.

                  • Very practical position and good location is just in front of the hotel.

                    Not value for money as the room was rather old.

                  • Central location and convenient hotel for the centre. Staff helpful & flexible, comfortable beds.

                    Room looked bad, overpriced breakfast.
