De La Paix is decent hotel in Lausanne, no surprises on either end. Is is located uphill from the railway station. If you are a tourist and aim for the downtown area, then it is a prime location. Pretty far from the lake, which I prefer, but this is only a personal preference, no objective point for or against.
The hotel has valet parking, which is great, since is Lausanne it is hard to figure out parking by yourself.
The hotel went through renovation recently, which has significantly improved the experience. If you can afford try to look for a bigger room on the 6th floor with a view towards the lake and the mountain. I think they are a bit more expensive, but it worth it, specially if you are travelling with a family. Rooms are larger and nicer. Bathrooms are nice, and clean. On the top floors you have both a shower and a bath.
Breakfast is OK, you have more or less everything you need. Do not expect anything spectacular here. I personally miss the eggs prepared on the spot.
Wifi is free (however, for me it was not working for a couple of times, and there is no IT help at reception). You have cable as a back-up, although you have to pay for it.
All in all it is decent hotel without surprises. You get what you have paid for.
