I stayed here once before and it remains the same quality of hotel. Clean, welcoming and helpful staff.

The breakfast selection available is really good with plenty to offer for all needs.

It’s is very close to Ouchy metro which will take you to Lausanne station to explore Switzerland further.

My room was clean and modern as very well equipped with everything I needed to relax, work and feel comfortable.

Would definitely come back here again

Although we had a bit of a hassle checking in, which was sorted out quickly, the room was pleasant and the service for our stay was very responsive. The room had a room safe and thermostatic control of the heating & air conditioning. Guests had a comprehensive list of extra pillows that could be brought to the room for no extra charge--such as bolsters, leg pillows, neck pillows, and other firmness types. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, with an option of eating outside in the sidewalk cafe area across the road from the lake. The location is a bit on the outskirts that meant we had to take the subway from the town center, but this was not an issue. Nice place.

This hotel is in a great location looking out over the lake. It is clean and comfortable. Service is great. You can find plenty of food options nearby. The bar is very small though so it can be difficult to get a drink at the hotel if it is busy - mainly because you cannot get into it!

We booked having read previous reviews that some of the rooms had an odor or were otherwise in need of a refresh, and we found this to be true. Our room did have a humid funk, but it cleared out quickly with open windows. The carpet was tired and had multiple stains, but it was clean. The sofa and chair were outdated and even frayed in a few spots, but they were comfortable. We had a 3-day stay and tried to move rooms but the hotel was booked with a conference. Since we could only have moved the last day to a room without the water view, we stayed, and found it to be okay.
The view from the deluxe water view room can’t be beat and makes everything alright. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom had fresh design and was very functional and clean. We paid for full breakfast, this was a very convenient way to start the day. The cold buffet has excellent diversity including lots of fruits and the bread station was fantastic. The hot buffet was a hot mess and we cannot recommend it. Bland, mass produced, spotty cooking consistency, stale potatoes, messy eggs, very little appeal visually or to the taste buds, so stick to the cold items, which are fresh and plentiful.
Overall we’d probably book the room again just for the location and view, but reviews say the water-view rooms will be refreshed soon, and this is certainly overdue.
Front desk and restaurant staff were all pleasant and the hotel was well staffed. The city Metro pass was a very convenient amenity.
Had a great stay overall in Lausanne, wonderful city!

Dear Piep v,
Many thanks for the detailed report. I have taken note about your recommendation on our buffet and especially the hot section. We are now reviewing the set-up to ensure better circulation and obviously quality. Regarding the rooms, you are absolutely right and I am glad to inform that renovation of 80 classic rooms will start in two weeks time. I hope you will get the opportunity to discover our new rooms very soon. Best regards,

This hotel is situated right against the lake and has fantastic access to most parts of the city. While it looks modest from the outside, the rooms are very modern and full of all the needed amenities. The daily breakfast is great with a good array of options and you can have it sitting outside with a view of the lake.

I stayed here for a week while attending a course at IMD business school and it could not have been more convenient. The staff are very friendly and everything was taken care of promptly. Definitely the place to stay if you are exploring Lausanne.

Room tip: Book in advance if you want rooms with a lake view.
