“Always up to standards”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

I come regularly to this hotel, for business. Never reviewed it but they deserve it. The location is perfect, 50 meters from the center of Lausanne and with a beautiful view towards the lake and mountains. I always found the customer service level excellent and for those who come often, you could see that a lot of staff in the hotel is here for long years which always gives a homey feeling.
Restaurant is very good in quality. The business center organization is impecable. They now very well the business of events and banqueting. After the renovation, the rooms kept their intimate feeling though with a more modern look.

Room Tip: Rooms with lake view from the balcony would offer you magnificient landscapes.

Everything worked well, staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were well equipped and breakfast was delicious. Bathroom was big enough and clean, room was spacious. Nothing to complain! Hotel has own parking garage, quite expensive one though. Location was good, old city is nearby as well as the lake. You can get a ticket for the public transport to go around the city if you are interested. Recommended!

Beautiful Lausanne views from our balcony. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious. It was our best breakfast while we were in Switzerland. A bonus was our discounted rate for a Saturday night stay.

Only downside: walking uphill from the train station.

On the positive side, it has a nice location in central Lausanne. Rooms with lake view have a really nice view and the hotel is very clean.

On the negative side, many rooms are tiny and has no view. Service is correct but at a minimum, they seem to be saving money on everything from soap to other amenities. shower/toilets are basic and small too. Breakfast is minimal too and you get fed-up with the same limited food items everyday. No spa or gym in the hotel.

Overall, the Hotel de la Paix is way overpriced and for 20 CHF more you can go to nearby Palace Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.

I just stayed for the night during a business conference.
While the room was clean and had a great view on the lake the size of the room was unacceptable for the price.
The room was slightly larger then the bed and had an old touch to it.
Breakfast and service were according to expectations - but not more.
I'd avoid it for either cheaper options anywhere in Lausanne or slightly more expensive options but then at least directly at the lake!

When James Joyce was in Lausanne he stayed at the Hotel de la Paix, so I dropped in for a coffee and a look. It's all changed inside since Joyce's day, of course (the outside looks much the same), but I wasn't disappointed. Friendly, relaxed people, and it's conveniently placed for Place Saint Francois, where Gibbon lived, and trams down to Ouchy and the lake, where Lord Byron and Shelley went sailing. The coffee was good.

The "hôtel de la Paix" is a four stars hotel located in the centre of Lausanne. The good think is the location centralized. Service and welcome is warm, room are ok and prices reasonable. WIFI is free into the room and inside the hotel. In the Room, LCD TV (125 channels approx.with all the major international channels), tee and coffee available with hot water if needed. Toilet are clean and no negative points found for this part. Good hotel for business except that don't choose this one (explained below)

The area for improvement :
- Main improvements are the entertainment and amneties
- No fitness
- No indoor or outside pool
- No spa
- Breakfast choices are small (only egg, bacon and saucisse are items proposed hot), 3-4 choices of bread including croissant, some Yogurts, cheese, ham and cereals. That's all.
- Same point for in room dining (12 propostions at all with some sandwiches included).
