You couldn't ask for a better location in Lausanne than this one if you are traveling by train. You walk out of the train station, cross the street and walk into the hotel. The metro is right next door so getting around the city is extremely easy. We stayed there for 4 nights in May 2013 -- we asked for a quiet room when booking the hotel -- they had us in a room overlooking the street in the front and we asked for a room in the back -- we like to keep our window open at night to keep the room cool -- the hotel had no problem giving us a room in the back. There was some noise as the area behind the hotel is sometime frequented by young people late at night, but it wasn't a big problem. The room itself was great -- lots of storage on shelves on a large wall unit and places to open up 2 suitcases. Very nice bathroom. Also enjoyed the buffet. The internet was easy to access and pretty fast. The only complaint I have is with the staff at the front desk -- I have a feeling that if we spoke French, we would have been treated better. When the internet stopped working one night, I called the front desk -- the clerk insisted that no one else was having a problem and that it must have been my computer -- no matter how much I insisted there was a problem, I was told there wasn't. I finally gave up. They called back in a 1/2 hour to let me know that the internet for the whole hotel was down (it was a Swisscom problem). When I checked out, my interaction with the front desk was very cold -- here is your bill. No asking how I enjoyed my stay or were there any problems. Except for the front desk staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
