Stayed here for 7 days - 6 nights.


LOCATION: The metro and bus stops are close by, and there are a lot of restaurants and shops in the area around the hotel.

ROOMS: Generally clean and well-maintained, but quite small. Was lucky as we had a view of Lake Geneva. Amenities were bare minimum, and the soap bar was the smallest I have ever seen. (at home, my soap bars don't get that small before I throw them away). And if that wasn't enough, it doesnt get changed everyday!

SERVICE: Staff were very helpful and accommodating. If you check in at midnight, you might think the place was closed as the lobby lights are turned off.

FOOD: Breakfast was the same every single day. About the only thing that changed was the location of the table where the bacon, sausages and eggs where. Not much variety in the lunch menu as well. ( we ate there as the meeting was in the hotel as well). That's why the location of the hotel was great, as you didn't have to go far to escape from their food..

PILLOWS: I have to say something about their pillows. They look nice and fluffy, but once you lay your head on them, they flatten to about 2 inches! Never seen anything like it...you need to have 2 pillows ( or fold one, which you can do) to have even a semblance of elevation for your head.

Room Tip: Specify a room with a view of the lake. On a clear night, you can see the lights from Evian as you go to bed, you'll have to deal with the occasional siren, though.

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.
