Hotel was great. Comfortable, clean. Check in was via intercom which was really easy. Basket full of fresh coins ants was left every morning by front door. Room had fridge and tea making facilities. Would definitely recommend. Would definitely want to stay there again if I go back to Lausanne.

Having no reception was fine, but the stay here made me realise I prefer hotels with a reception, for security reasons and for having someone to ask questions/directions. You can call the remote staff by telephone but it's not the same as face-to-face in my view. We ended up going to the sister hotel nearby, where the reception staff were... More

There is no reception at this hotel. You have to push the buzzer and then they open the door and then you'll have to do a live Skype chat. There is no front entrance you have to go down an alley to get to the front door. This place is very dated. The television is very small. Elevator is only... More

I have visited for a business trip and this is one of the cheap and best hotel. Strongly recommend for short stay. Hotel location near to railway station and park. This is wonderful location. Interior was moderate and wifi may not reach all places. First time I have seen remote access room assistance. NICE

I did not expect that this hotel is a few minutes away from the metro and train station. There is a bus stop that's 2 minutes away from the hotel which is also very convenient.

Expensive for what it is. Big clean room. Decor a bit sad. Quiet. The croissants are left by the front door, not the door to your room! I ended up paying 18 francs for a very poor breakfast at the sister hotel, Hotel a la Gare - definitely NOT worth it.
