The hotel is well located just in front of the main railway station and walking distance from the old town. The breakfast is quite decent and I loved their huge nespresso machine.
On the other hand, my biggest issue with this hotel was the really hard and unconfortable bed, as well as non adjustable room temperature. I totally agree with the last comment. My room was a sauna and I had to regularly open the window to cool it down.

Arrived 9pm to find room +25C, told the air conditioning had been turned-off for the summer and if I wanted to cool the room then open the window...when over looking the busiest street in Lausanne! It was like sleeping in a sauna! Don't stay at this hotel!

Dear Sir,
Following your comments and our phone conversation, I would like once more to underline how sorry I am for the bad experience you had during the night you’ve stayed in our Hotel! It’s true that the air-conditioning was not working as according to the weather forecast the temperature should not go over 15C.
Independently to that, our staff at the front desk should find an alternative offering you another room on an upper floor where all rooms have permanent air-conditioning and not give an answer as you mention in your comments!
Hope to have the opportunity to welcome you in another occasion at our Hotel and show you our real “face” which is the one described in most of the other comments in TripAdvisor!

We stayed here 3 times over a period of 2 weeks. Very convenient location and they only charge 7CHF for parking.
Same room each time which was nice. The room, a junior suite was large with a king sized bed (two twins put together?) and a sofa that makes into a bed. Nothing remarkable but nothing wrong either. Good use a facelift, for sure! Breakfast is great and included in our room price...though if you have extra people, it's a little spendy for breakfast....I think about 23 CHF.
Staff is nice and when there was a problem with the bill, it was worked out quickly.

Excellent location just opposite of the Main Railway station, excellent service, rooms, and not to forget, the breakfast.

Just a few metres to the Metro, connecting to all facilities in Lausanne, and a free bus/metro/train ticket for one day per night at the hotel, made it easy to move around in Lausanne and the nearest surroundings.

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.
