“Very Disappointed by Bed Bugs and Cleanliness!!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2006

I am a business traveler and I have stayed at the hotel many times for business, but will never again after a business partner woke up and had been bitten by bed bugs from head to toe. I do not care how great the service, location, food, etc is if you can't maintain the basic cleanliness of a hotel, then you do not have the right to run a hotel business.

The hotel is literally at the train station. Perfect for someone who needs that. And the hotel is very nice -- nice size rooms, beautiful layout, lobby, good linnens, toiletries, staff is nice, breakfast is good. Excellent quality. I was passing through Lausanne on holiday, on my way out of Switzerland and on to Paris. I'd heard Lausanne was beautiful and thought I'd spend a night there before catching the TGV. In that regard, I regret staying near the train station. That area of the City is not picturesque at all. Nor is the area uphill, in the old town. If you are staying in Lausanne for a holiday, stay near the lake. Although more expensive, it will be worth it. And there is a funicular at the lake that will take you into the train station. But, if here on business or otherwise need a hotel close to the train station, this is a great hotel. I would stay again if that was my criteria.

When I travel in Europe I try to stay near the train station and this is about as good as it gets. We had an "old world" triple, meaning that it was probably once a 2 room apartment and not a large monolithic, plain room. Very comfortable, air-conditioned (a must), quiet. Just up a small side street across from the main station. Better than average breakfast, nice folks, old world charm with lots of nice art.

This is a superb hotel. Near the station, but when you get inside it is stunning. Modern prints hang from the walls, rugs cover tiled floors, marble staircases and an atrium the full height of the hotel. Staff are great and can't do enough for you. Room are well appointed and even though there is no restaurant (the bar does serve light meals and there is room service), the bistros, bars and restaurants nearby do not make this a problem. This is a 4 star hotel, like the Agora, but they are worlds apart. If on business or holiday, you'll not go wrong staying here.
