Agora Swiss Night by Fassbind
Ranked #5 of 45 Hotels in Lausanne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2014

We spent 2 nights here - great value for money. The only criticism is that when we checked in, we were initially given a room which had not been made up at all. It wasn't too messy and maybe that was why the staff didn't realise they had not made up the room yet. But it was scary enough to see used towels and coffee cups as you wouldn't normally suspect an unmade room be given. I had to call reception to ask about it. Afterwards we were given a slightly larger room - nothing we didn't like, it was spacious and very clean. It was perhaps just the initial encounter which had affected our impression on the hotel somehow.

I've researched on a few hotels (incl. the sister hotels of This hotel), and should I return to Lausanne I would return again. It's located on the residential side of the main train station which is 5 min. walk; and also less than 5 min. walk to the Grancy Metro station. 2 stops to Ouchy (the quay key) and 2 stops to Flon city centre. Next to the hotel is one the best restaurant that I like - Cafe Grancy. Food is fantastic. Coming back to the hotel...the room is immaculate well kept.

We came to and left Lausanne by train, so this hotel's walking distance location was fantastic, only a few minutes down the hill. Also located right along the metro route that goes down to the water at Ouchy and up the steep hill into town and the cathedral, with the free public transport passes the hotel gives you it couldn't be any more convenient to get around.

The hotel is interesting with a unique and modern style. While the rooms are cosy, they're thoughtfully designed and make the best of their space. The bathroom and shower in the room we stayed has semi transparent glass walls so this may or may not work for you depending on how intimately you know your travelling companion.

Breakfast is perhaps not cheap but definitely delicious and the view from their penthouse dining area is pretty special.

The staff were really helpful and the rate not unreasonable and definitely good value, would stay again!

I spent some days of my vacation in beautiful Lausanne at this property. The location is very good, close to the metro and the railway station. I found the design of the hotel very trendy and nice. There are some nice brasseries/restaurants in the vicinity close to the hotel. I had little interaction with staff this time, but they seemed friendly and helpful to me. There was great value for the price I paid at this hotel, I will definetely come back.

very trendy looking hotel. great location, 5 minute walk to lausanne train station, and 2 minute walk to the subway that takes you from ouchy to old lausanne. the room was compact but had a super cool layout, complete with an iron, coffee, tea, air conditioning, really comfortable beds, wi-fi.

Hotel have very decent location - just a few minutes from train station. The is a metro station just near by the hotel, which will take you all the way down to the harbour. The city center is within short walking distance from the hotel, from the other side of the train station. Hotel provides you a free public city transport card, which was very useful.

The rooms are clean and tidy, very nicely decorated. As a small disadvantage there was a glass wall in the shower, but it is not completely transparent, so it still was ok. Wifi was good. On the ground floor there is a small gym and a sauna.

The personal was friendly and efficient, always glad to help you.
I would definately recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again.
