Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed here on my own for a little peace from home over the last five nights and was very pleasantly surprised. It’s true that I took a better double room with cathedral view. It was quieter than expected for the location and really nice overall.

Modern very recently opened hotel. It is conveniently located close to the tribunal and hospitals. The heating in room is powerful. Apparently at a first look well furnished and looking nice and confortable, but the lighting in room is poor, no USB ports close to the bed, the bathroom is poorly equipped. In my room the hot water was absent and I couldn't have a shower. The WC flushing was badly conceived going out from the WC at each flush. A nightmare.

Located in a very walkable neighbourhood, and very close to two convenient metro stops. Rooms were modern but not fancy. Would have enjoyed it more if there was AC, as the single fan provided did not help much during a sweltering few days. Convenient laundry downstairs and free gym available at its sister hotel nearby.

Simple and clean, located in the centre, this new hostel offers an excellent place to enjoy your stay in Lausanne. Only a few rooms have a view but there is a nice terrace in the courtyard. A travel pass is included in the price.

The very minimum of the very minimum... and the price is the minimum...
Hotel disguised as boutique hotel but is more like a hostel...
Only good thing is location as it is really really central...
To go only as last resort...

Reception staff is a great asset of this hotel ...they are professional, careful and very nice (both at check in and check out). Their support and help was great.. thank you. I loved this hotel, is modern, simple but with all that we needed ... cleanliness, comfort, silence, wifi connection in the room, next (50mt) to metro Ours (but Bessière is not far either), they gave us a free transport card for the 2days... we just overnighted but would recommend even for longer stays!!!

This hotel is in a period of renovation
It was like a building site dusty and boxes around the place. Only s few rooms being used
The room itself was clean
Other areas unsafe with electrical leads hanging down
Although the price is less that others in the city there is no explanation to describe why and no mention of the work that is being undertaken
There needs to be more openness about this so potential clients are aware

This hotel was a great choice in Lausanne! Good location, safe, a block from the Metro and key attractions, shops, etc. are also very close. Updated hotel property and room was great, very clean. Friendly staff. I would stay here again for sure.

the hotel is very clean, with simple rooms and basic breakfast.

we enjoyed the part it is located a lot (local people, shops/ restaurants) although it’s quite far up the hill.
you get a free public transport ticket from the hotel wich you can use for the metro. it brings you to the lake and centre of lausanne.

all in all a very good price- performance
