Excellent location. In terms of connectivity it is in front of train station and next to metro station.Rooms are nice and clean. The hotel is a bit expensive though. You can always take a metro to ouchy ,which is the other part of the city.

If you're here on business, have a load of luggage & are using the train this is a good choice. It's possible to wheel your bags on a station trolley,under the road and up into the hotel lobby. Convenience aside you don't get a lot of room for your Swiss Francs but it is a clean modern room,albeit cluttered by...

I want to start with something positive. The location of this hotel is very convenient. It's opposite the train station. If you decide to stay here despite this review, then at least you will save cab fare from the train station to the hotel. That's it. I have nothing positive left to say or share. I cant believe they have...

The hotel is located in a perfect position. The staff is professional and nice. The room we had was spacious and with a nice views. The breakfast has a wide choice of fresh products. I would recommend the Continental Hotel in Lausanne.

Hotel Continental is right across from the Lausanne Train Station. I usually avoid hotels next to train stations as I worry they are just hotels of convenience and economy. For a recent week long conference, Hotel Continental was the designated hotel so I reluctantly booked there. Whatever curb appeal it lacked, the staff more than made up for it. When...

The hotel has a strategic location (in front of the train station and metro). It has been recently renewed and rooms are very clean and tidy. The staff is very kind and helpful. The Front Desk Manager Mr. Nunes is the best!

My single room was very small but enough if you don't want to spend lot of time in. I had a table and it was comfortable to work with PC. It can be noisy if your room is on the front side and you want to open the window, but if you keep the window closed it is OK. The...

Hotel is located very close to the train station and a few steps from old town. Little bit longer takes to get to work to the lake. In case if you are lazy you can use public transport. Room was clean with old fashionable taste like in the manor house. A view from my balcony was with mountains and lake....

I booked a single room for half the rack rate and had breakfast, wi-fi and a public transport 2-day pass included. During a busy week in Lausanne this was a bargain and hence a great value for money. The room was very small though, with hardly enough room between the bed and the wall to walk to the window. I...

The location is accross the street from the Lausanne train station and just a few steps away from the Metro. The breakfast buffett was excellent with a...
