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.

The hotel is a few minutes walk from Lausanne Gare, so we find it very convinient for us to reach the hotel after our flight from Schipol to Geneva, and then about an hour by train from Geneva to Lausanne. When we checked in, the hotel lady provided each of us a QR code coupon for free use of public transports in the city (subway, buses), and this really makes our stay there more comfortable and enjoyable.

This is a boutique 5-storey hotel, and if your room is is a high floor, you can see the beautiful Lac Léman out of the window. The hotel is old, but it is well maintained. There are several interesting places aound to visit, and definitely, you can walk, or take the subway to Port Lausanne - Ouchy. Spend your time there to enjoy the beautiful landscape, before you may want to visit the Olympic Museum which is just about 10 - 15 minutes walking.

The location of this hotel is brilliant for access to the main railway station and the metro but it’s not the old town so the restaurants are mostly fast food and no Swiss food. It doesn’t look very special from the outside and the lift is not easily accessible on arrival. The decor is old fashioned and antique but is clean and well looked after.

Our room was on the 5th floor looking over some roves and the station. As someone else pointed out in a review the aircon wasn’t working but we opened the window instead and it was nice to have fresh air as the room was very hot. The room was a reasonable size with an old fashioned desk, 3 chairs that weren’t very comfortable. However the bed was extremely soft. We only had one pillow each and that was also very soft. I woke up with bad backache. I knew as soon as I sat on the bed when it just sinker that it would be soft.

There was a small entrance area in the room with plenty of wardrobe space, a safe and a mini bar/fridge. There were no tea or coffee making facilities. The bathroom was quite small but the walk in shower was efficient and spacious. There was a big mirror behind the door in the bathroom and over the sink but none in the bedroom or entrance area. There were electrical sockets by the beds but they don’t use standard European plugs. However we knew there were specific plugs for Switzerland alone so we bought one at the airport on the way out. Apparently they do loan them out from reception.

Breakfast isn’t included in the price which makes the hotel not such good value for money. I had missed this in the small print when booking. It wouldn’t have stopped me booking but I would have definitely not had the breakfast and would have eaten outside the hotel instead as there were lots of places especially as I’m not a big breakfast eater. The receptionist who checked us in did not point out that their was a charge for the breakfast. It cost 20 Swiss francs per person per day and although the quality was good it was not worth that money. We kept wondering why there was hardly anyone in the breakfast room but then we realised why as people didn’t want to pay for it.

The reception staff on the whole were friendly and helpful. They gave us a free metro ticket which was useful.

It was a good clean hotel with nice staff but not cheap.

Hotel Victoria is literally a 3-minute walk from the central train station and one minute from the metro going to the lake and to the old city. We stayed in a large tastefully renovated room on the 5th floor. The hotel gives passes for free transport within the city.

The best thing about this hotel are the helpful ladies at the Reception, the Portuguese lady Christina in the evening, who kindly showed us other room options when we did not like our assigned room, and then directed us to the Christmas Markets, Illuminated Buildings and authentic Swiss restaurants in Lausanne. Another very special lady was Virginie, the lady in the morning shift, who was always smiling and ready to assist in everything. She went out of her way by calling the restaurant we had booked the previous night and requesting a special table for us, which we thankfully got. She also advised us to go to the Olympic Museum, a must see in Lausanne, and pass by the Beau Rivage and Chateau d'Eau cult hotels on the lake. A memorable stay in Lausanne! God willing, we will return to Victoria Hotel in the summer.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on the 13/12/23 for one night. Reception requested a deposit payment in addition to their rate which was deducted from my account. To date I have not received my deposit despite requesting same. They are ignoring my emails. Beware of this hotel, we stayed at 8 other 4 and 5 star hotels and were never required to pay a deposit upfront.

The bed is also terrible at this hotel. We do not recommend this hotel and will definitely not be staying there on our next trip.

If you read the reviews breakfast is also not popular. BEWARE!

Great location with clean fully functional rooms. The pricing for Switzerland was reasonable.

The staff very friendly and helpful.

Location is close to everything and is easily within walking distance.

The hotel also provides free vouchers to the public transport services for the day.

Liked · The large room was quiet, decent bathroom. Good lighting and WiFi. Room minibar but no kettle.

We had a parking place outside which was great (and free) for Geneva. There are about 6 of these only.

Location is good for station and visiting new museum centre at platform 10. Steep climb to old town but you can take the metro with your free travel card.

Disliked · Steep steps for luggage - there is a special lift but you need to ask to use it and the staff had disappeared when we tried! It goes down into a crowded basement.

Breakfast is not impressive. It is arranged in the lounge, few tables, with a very modest buffet - nothing special to justify Sfr20 pp. We went out as there are many places around the station but a 4 star hotel should do better.

Central located hotel in Lausanne, very and clean, rooms are spacious, clean and well decored. Very large bath room with shower and a good set of anemities. Breakfast is good and with a large variety of dishes. Personal at reception very attentive. ONLY point, with the shorte water siuation, hot water comes after several minutes, long time, so waste of water is a matter

I am a business traveler and I have stayed at the hotel many times for business, but will never again after a business partner woke up and had been bitten by bed bugs from head to toe. I do not care how great the service, location, food, etc is if you can't maintain the basic cleanliness of a hotel, then you do not have the right to run a hotel business.

This is a superb hotel. Near the station, but when you get inside it is stunning. Modern prints hang from the walls, rugs cover tiled floors, marble staircases and an atrium the full height of the hotel. Staff are great and can't do enough for you. Room are well appointed and even though there is no restaurant (the bar does serve light meals and there is room service), the bistros, bars and restaurants nearby do not make this a problem. This is a 4 star hotel, like the Agora, but they are worlds apart. If on business or holiday, you'll not go wrong staying here.

I agree with the other commenter that said one of the staff acted as if he was the "superior"
Short story, i am an intern that works in Lausanne. During the last day of my work, my family had to help me to move out, so we have tremendous amount of heavy luggages. We booked a junior suite room for 2 people, as i did not plan to stay there with my family and taking the latest train to Montreux instead (my school).
Unfortunately, we missed the last train and i asked him politely if it is possible to pay the city tax or extra bed to join the room and he said no. And i explained to him that my family just had a 18hrs flight from Indonesia and we had total 6 huge luggages with us so we don't mind to pay a little bit of extra money.
But what shocked us the most was when he answered "you still can leave to Montreux now" (note that its 12.30 AM and he said it with the look as if he was disgusted).
At the end we booked another room although no one is staying there.
I work in a hospitality industry and it really disappoint me to see how unprofessional the staff was for a 4stars hotel like this. Would definitely not going back.

We gave the rating only for the convenient location.
