“Stunning views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

The reason for my stay was business, in fact I spent a whole week in this hotel, so got to know it well! I could not say much about the location as didn't get chance to explore, but be warned its on top if a huge hill, wouldn't recommended lugging a case up it from the train station. My room was clean and practical as was only a single. But I had a lake view which blew me away. The bar man is very good, gets to know your drink, and promptly serves you. The food was of a high standard too. Worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

The Hotel is well located, rooms are spacious and very well cleaned. Unfortunately the service it was not always ****stars level and honestly after they charge you CHF 1780 for 2 bedrooms for 3 nights you expect an impeccable service but unfortunately it was not always the case.

Hotel is very nice. Lobby and common areas are well decorated and very clean. Rooms are nice, some however are quite small, some rooms even half twin beds. The amenities are sparse; one small bar of soap, barely enough towels for one person. The rooms that face the lake are wonderful. They all have balconies so you are able to enjoy the outside and the wonderful view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. I have come in both winter and summer and the views are great in both seasons. The staff are primarily French speaking but are very patient with my English. The hotel is a short walk to shopping, transportation and many restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Lake Geneva

We arrived at the hotel in our own car before the normal check-in time; the reception offered to help parking our car in its private car park and move our luggage to our room. Therefore, we went out for lunch first, when we returned, everything was ready, our car had been parked in the hotel's car park and our luggage was inside our room. The size of the room was fine, with separate bath tub and shower. The breakfast is good, with some hot foods and perfectly cooked eggs. The location is excellent; close to shopping area and a subway station.

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...

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!
