“Terrific location, clean rooms”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Great location directly across from train station.
Good price, I couldn't find a better price for anything like this hotel or location.
Great Wifi, very speedy.
Clean spacious room, comfortable room.
Quiet, but we didn't have a street side room, so don't know if that would be worse.
Downstairs there's a quiet little bar perfect for a night cap.
Continental breakfast included was fine, not great, but unexpectedly included with the room.

The front desk staff were extremely helpful and polite.

I stayed there for 3 nights.
Comfortable large room,
Very nice breakfast and view from restaurtant.
The most important, the hotel is just located opposite to the Main Train station and next to Metro- Gare station. Very convenience

Only demirit was it took me 3 times approached reception to get a 7-day pass wifi card from reception.

I lived in Lausanne for a few years and have been going back 3-4 times a year ever since. Having said this, I've never even noticed this hotel even though it's directly across the street from the Lausanne train station. And I have only nice things to say about the hotel - rooms are nice and fairly well maintained, the location is really convenient and there are a number of restaurants in the neighborhood to choose from. I have often stayed at the Alpha Palmiers and I have to say that I prefer the Continental.

Nothing fundamentally wrong but also nothing remarkable.
Definitely needs renovation. Decoration is 1980's.
Many details usual for 4* places aren't available there, eg no hooks in bathroom.
Special rates we had was OK but certainly not worth the normal rate in spite of its convenient location.

Pros:
-Best location in Lausanne. Across from the central train station. Co-located with Metro subway, McDonalds, several restaurants and pharmacy.
-Very large specious "classic" rooms (economy rooms smaller)
-Some rooms have views (south facing water, north facing hill)
-Very good breakfast
-Comfortable bed
-Good housekeeping
-Coffee machine (in the hallway to share) only
-Good warm service at check in and check out

I cannot identify any flaws. It's an excellent choice in Lausanne and I would stay there again.

The location of this hotel is just in front of Lausanne railway station. The metro station is in next building for which free pass is available at reception. The breakfast is good but it would be better if hotel management could offer hot omelette as well. The hospitality of staff is very good. They are always ready to help you. There are quite a few restaurants nearby. There is an Indian restaurant Nandanam nearby which is very busy and needs advance reservation. On entertainment front, TV has limited choice of channels. Hotel could add more international channels for increasing visitors from Middle East & Asia. Overall very good experience with this hotel.

Room Tip: Front side view is better

Room size is great for a family of three. Location is great for travelers on train. Sound proof is good and we had a good night sleep. Breakfast was great. Beverage selection is great -- nespresso e.t.c.
