The hotel is located in a perfect position. The staff is professional and nice. The room we had was spacious and with a nice views. The breakfast has a wide choice of fresh products. I would recommend the Continental Hotel in Lausanne.

Hotel Continental is right across from the Lausanne Train Station. I usually avoid hotels next to train stations as I worry they are just hotels of convenience and economy. For a recent week long conference, Hotel Continental was the designated hotel so I reluctantly booked there. Whatever curb appeal it lacked, the staff more than made up for it. When it rained, I was able to borrow the hotel's large umbrella. Very thoughtful and appreciated. Yes, the rooms are very small, but the decor is nice and the bathrooms clean and modern. I was impressed by the full size hair dryer and rain shower nozzle. If I must be critical, then it is the apparent existence of only one iron for the entire hotel. I asked the front desk for the use of an iron, and was asked to finish my ironing immediately since another guest was waiting for it! Really?

All in all, the hotel's proximity to everywhere makes it an ideal location.

The hotel has a strategic location (in front of the train station and metro).
It has been recently renewed and rooms are very clean and tidy.
The staff is very kind and helpful. The Front Desk Manager Mr. Nunes is the best!

My single room was very small but enough if you don't want to spend lot of time in. I had a table and it was comfortable to work with PC. It can be noisy if your room is on the front side and you want to open the window, but if you keep the window closed it is OK. The mattress was a little bit too hard for me, but I find very good to have a french bed in a single room.
Breakfast was excellent and staff very kind, friendly and helpful. The location is absolutely great, close to the railway station and the metro (the hotel gives you a free card for public transport).

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the rear side.

Hotel is located very close to the train station and a few steps from old town. Little bit longer takes to get to work to the lake. In case if you are lazy you can use public transport.
Room was clean with old fashionable taste like in the manor house. A view from my balcony was with mountains and lake. Really nice, enjoyed it every free minute.
Breakfast was not the best, but not the worst either. Staff, two women who were serving breakfast were very unfriendly arrogant and unhappy without any smile on their faces.

I would stay again and can recommend to my friends.
