Being directly across from the Gare Lausanne, you might expect this hotel to be a little off. This is in fact a very well maintained hotel, with an excellent staff. The location is quite convenient, the bathroom and linens were gleaming. The staff was so polite and friendly, not to mention thorough. A very Suisse experience for the everyman.

The room was okay, right in front of the train station, accommodating staff - helped us newbies to the city get around Lausanne. I didn't appreciate the high prices but I loved the morning breakfast and how close it was to other food joints.

I was very impressed with this hotel from the outset. The staff at reception were exceptional - friendly, polite, efficient - and the room (126) was exactly what I needed - quiet, spotlessly clean, well equipped. A standout for my stay was the bed - one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The duvet was also a triumph ... so soft and light. The rainforest shower was also a very pleasant surprise. The lifts had antiquated charm to them. You can not beat the location - opposite the train station ... and conveniently located next to a Starbucks. Price was very good too - weighing up the whole experience, it was extremely good value for money. Thanks to all the staff that made this a top stay.

What I liked: - The staff was very friendly and polite - The hotel is very well located for people that come by train (without car) - The hotels offers the option to store bikes - There is good, fresh fruit salad at breakfast - Comfortable beds What needs to be improved: - The bathroom was not properly cleaned when we arrived. It was nothing disgusting, only dust and drops of some sort of liquid, but they should not be there, specially because the hotel does not offer room cleaning unless you stay for at least four nights (due to COVID). - The bathroom shower was semi-blocked and the shape of the basin does not allow liquids to go down properly. - The breakfast service could be improved and they need more staff to help: One is not allowed to get their own coffee/tee and has to wait long to get it. Same thing for eggs. - The food offered on site for dinner was not very good. All the dished we tasted needed salt.

The hotel is very centrally located right opposite from the Lausanne train station. The entrance to it is nestled between some shops, one being its own cafe where breakfast is available at an extra cost. The recption was neat and tidy and the staff were very engaging and attentitive. I had booked a single room and was offered an upgrade at a reduced price to the standard room. I declined and was glad I did was my room was more than adaquate and the bed size was still decent. I will add that I am sure a room at the front of the hotel on a higher floor would offer a lovely view over the town and down to the lake. My view was of an office block. The room had all the amenities you would expect but with the bonus of a fridge also. The room was basic, but decently decorated and holds up well in comparision to the generic chain hotels. Overall, a decent hotel, with good value especially if you shop around on different comparison sites. I would stay here again but would try for a nicer view on a higher floor.
