Ok hotel, good location to see Lausanne
Hotel was located very near to the Lausanne train station which gave ease of access to the whole city through the wonderful metro service. Hotel is slightly dated and no working air conditioning or fan in room which was tough with the hot weather. The front desk staff were very helpful regarding parking off site, overall an ok hotel.

Convient hotel for our visit to Lausanne and Lavaux
Location near the train station and metro is convenient for accessing the old town and lakefront as well as the nearby towns on the lake. The front desk staff were as friendly and helpful as it is possible to be. Our room was clean and comfortable. The AC unit was quiet but effective, however our friend's room had no AC. WIFI reception was marginal in our room which was at the end of the hall.

Surprising quality and value for money
I have been several times to Lausanne and I have always found it difficult to stay in a good hotel and a decent price. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel, and the room. The breakfast was also pretty good. My main reason for choosing this hotel was the location, which is literally in front of the train station. However, next time I will try to stay again at this hotel because I really enjoyed my stay.

4/10 Fair

Not recommend
The staff is lack of training. Messing up simple math between three booking. That causes confusion and is annoying. The staff simply blamed previous one who did the calculation making a mistake and cannot give a reason why that mistake will happen. Some staffs don’t speak English, sometime we will need to write done the room number for the breakfast staffs. Also the room condition is also not good, e.g, the room is old and curtain is ruptured. Definitely won’t stay there again and won’t recommend this property.
