Great service and view.... But don't stay there if you're a light sleeper

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Aug 2023
Staff are super friendly and the hotel is located and very clean. However, the walls are paper thin, you can hear every door close on the floor and starting 6:00 AM it is impossible to sleep.... Really a shame for such a nice hotel

The location of this hotel is perfect, just steps away from the older part of the city, a block from a Coop, and about a 20 minute walk to the train station for taking day trips. The washroom and shower were spacious and clean.

The view from our room (304) and balcony of the lake and city was beautiful. However, the hotel sits only a few feet away from a busy road so the room was incredibly noisy all day with the sound of cars, trucks, and motorcycles, too noisy to leave the balcony door open for air at night so we slept in a warm room. On warm days the outdoor seating for the restaurant was two stories below us so we got to the add the noise of people dining outside to our evening noise.

We had a junior suite which gave us more space. The décor in the room was a bit tired and would benefit from an update. The two ultrasuede chairs and loveseat were old and had black stains on them from age and use. The pillows were horrible and when we asked for firmer pillows we were told that’s all they had. Terribly thin pillows and a warm room made for terrible sleep. We’re pretty sure we had a top sheet when we arrived but it disappeared after a room clean. The room was so warm at night we didn’t need or want the bed quilt. We asked for another top sheet or any kind of sheet which appeared to confuse the front desk. When we got back to our room someone had left two huge banquet table cloths on our bed for top sheets!

We didn’t want to pay the 50 CHF for breakfast each day ($75 for us) so we got breakfast snacks at the Coop instead. The staff were not overly friendly and one staffperson at the front desk had a dog that barked and barked behind her.

Have stayed in much quieter and more comfortable hotels than this one.

Room tip: If you want quiet, stay somewhere else or see if the rooms facing the back of the hotel are quieter.

There were so many hotels to choose from in the area, we made the best choice with Hotel De la Paix!

The location was perfect to walk around the area which has shopping, restaurants, cafes and historical sites. It is also a close walk to the Metro, Switzerlands only subway, which was great to take to and from the lake. Note- Lausanne area is very hilly, so have comfy shoes!

All of the staff we encountered during our week's stay were very courteous and helpful.

Our room had a view of Lake Geneva- highly recommend as it is beautiful. We had a king size bed, two chairs, small table, desk, etc. Roomy enough for two adults. The bathroom was spacious, with good amount of counter space (especially compared to other European hotels), and good size walk in shower.

Room tip: Get a room with a view of Lake Geneva

I requested & was allocated a top floor single room with bath & lake view. This despite being told at check-in that room 514 did NOT have a bath! I’d booked & prepaid for room only. Was shocked to learn at check-in that breakfast is 25CHF!! More of that anon.
514 is just the kind of room I like in a hotel. Sensible without any nonsensical deviations. Kettle & mini fridge. Fabulous view & vg sound insulation, necessary as the hotel is on a busy road. Several British TV channels, including ITV4 for Tour de France coverage! My only criticism of the room is the pillows which were dreadful … no resistance whatsoever!
Back to the breakfast. For 25CHF I was expecting the scrambled eggs to be seasoned with truffles & decorated with gold leaf! A decent spread, but the buffet layout is poor, both as regards guest access & the products. As a person who has food allergies, I was very unimpressed that sesame-covered bread / rolls were in close proximity / mixed in with un-seeded products. Also the huge dining room windows were wide open to the fumes of passing traffic & smokers. And for that price, the OJ should’ve been freshly-squeezed.
Location: approx. 5 mins. from Bessières metro stn. (uphill from the hotel) or a 10-15 min. flat walk from Lausanne Flon metro stn. In both cases, a lift transports passengers up to street level. Nearby bus #1 also serves Lausanne’s main train stn. Free local transport & attraction discounts are included with the Transport Card issued by the hotel.
Be aware that this hotel is dog-friendly.
Overall, I very much enjoyed my time at the hotel & would stay again.

Hotel is in a great location. Well spaced clean room with fridge and comfortable bed. The breakfast has a good selection and great quality. Only complaint is under cooked scrambled eggs which seemed the norm in Switzerland.
Walking distance to several historical sights, upscale high end shopping, a Co-Op grocery store, local buses and the metro.

Again, the name is wrong in the reviews- it is de not del. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious. Breakfast was a standard buffet but they had everything. The location is perfect - 5 minutes to the cathedral and the local COOP supermarket. Views of the lake are breathtaking from anywhere in the hotel. It's a hilly city so walking is easy except for the incline but it's good exercise. The hotel offered free metro pass service. A 5 minute drive from the train station. Overall, a very nice place to stay. If I were to return to Lausanne, I would surely stay here.
