Lausanne, Switzerland1 contribution
There are many qualities to appreciate about this wonderful, small hotel: People on the staff are helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable. It is very close to the train station but on a quiet street with good restaurants and shops nearby. The lake and mountains are magnificent. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is full of good choices. Whenever I come to Lausanne, I will stay here.

Our room was small by North American standards but certainly all you need. Central location, near to the metro station (that you will use every day with the free transit pass issued by the hotel) is fantastic. We faced out on the quiet, mainly pedestrian street. There are lots of lively cafes close by and a small farmers market one day. We thought the breakfast was very good with ample variety.

My room was on the street level, and the window had direct access to some garbage cans. Room was clean, but not very modern. A little bit old-fashioned. Breakfast had not very much variety. But the train in the floor is cool.

Basic room, faced the train tracks but no noise from the trains. You get a transport pass , metro very close by. , easy access to the lake. Great desk staff helped in an early arrival and another minor crisis. Thank you !
