“Tops for train station access”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We like this hotel's location best since it is slightly beyond the fray of congestion where the other hotels are located.
Just exit the front of the station walk to the right, cross the street and continue slightly uphill one block turn left and the front entrance is on the left of the side street.
There is an imposing flight of stairs upon entering with no available elevator in site, but just leave your bags for the bellman. Continue upstairs and to the right to check in.
The hotel is worth the extra walking just to have a spacious and grand atmosphere in and outside the rooms.
Front desk is very helpful. Use the complimentary metro card to ride the funiculaire to Ouchy in one direction or the other for gaining access to the city higher above. Check out on Sundays was at noon.

Good to pass a night especially if you travel by train. A short walk from the station and my room was very quiet and functional. Breakfast is simple and complete. So, if you have a night and come in with the train I would recommend this. If you stay a bit longer and have the money to spend you're probably better off at the lake.

Compare to 10 other hotels in Lausanne I satyed in which were mostly 3-4 stars this one by far I consider the best so far. Rooms are bigger, extremely clean and quiet. Impecable service and great decor. The onlu thing I dont like is the choice of pillows.

Good location, just few steps from Lausanne train station! The price is reasonable for a suiss hotel. Also close to downtown where you have other restaurant options, including an italian and a sea food place.

Rooms are small but reasonably appointed, perfectly clean. You do get your exercise if you walk from the railroad station, which is just 5 minutes away on foot. The hotel is up a short, uphill street, then when you get to the front door there is one flight of stairs to get to the reception desk. Breakfast is quite good. Four stars is a bit of a stretch, but it's generally speaking a nice place. Front desk people are pleasant and invariably helpful.

Room Tip: Upon reaching your room, you get a tutorial on the room key, which involves a short delay until the...

The hotel is close to the railway station, which is usually a worrisome feature. Not in this case. The hotel is nice, the entry hall quite pleasant, the rooms small but confortable. Friendly, attentive service. Recommened for a business trip

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

Stayed here as a single traveller for 2 nights in March 2013. It is a really short walk from the main station and the owner has put alot of thought into the decoration of the place. I stayed in Room 610 which is a single room with a single and half sized bed. The bathroom was done out really well and the room was clean / functional, although very hot when i got there and i could find no way of cooling the room down aside from opening a window (considering it was trying to snow outside i decided against this). The bed was ok comfort wise, but REALLY big thick pillows that i didn't find comfortable to sleep on at all. The walls seem quite thin i heard someone in a room near to me snoring most of the way through the night and i also made the mistake of leaving the inner door open and could hear every conversation in the hallway outside in the morning.. The gym is well equipped, but no aircon so i worked up a sweat very quickly. The staff are very pleasant and helped me out figuring out where i needed to go in the mornings and at what time. Meals in the hotel come from a microwave so don't expect any high end gourmet dinners..
