Hotel Continental Lausanne
Ranked #13 of 46 Hotels in Lausanne
Reviewed 17 August 2013

I had read that the basic rooms were small so we upgraded to the next size. These are the orange and plaid rooms. We had two rooms for our family of four. The rooms were huge with plenty of storage space. The room was very clean, bathroom was nice, beds comfortable and air conditioning worked great. It was very hot in August so I would definitely recommend the air conditioning. The room would also be a large triple, but there are four of us so we had to get two rooms. Pascal was so nice and helpful at the front desk. He really went out of his way for us. Breakfast was good. Loved the location right near the train station. Our rooms faced the back of the hotel not the street. We didn't hear any noise at night. I would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Hotel Continental. It's a great location right across from the train station, which allowed us easy access to travel around the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was traditional European fare - very Good, although they ran out of some items on Sat morning. Our room was very tidy and well kept - we were fortunate to have a room on the top floor which had a balcony that overlooked Lake Geneva. It was a spectacular view! The hotel also provided us with metro cards to get around & the wifi worked well for the most part. Best of all, we got an amazing deal on the stay by booking directly through the hotel's website. Highly recommend this hotel to any traveler!

excellent hotel situated across the street from main railway station and next door to metro.

our room was huge overlooking the train station and the lake in the distance. Apart from the usual facilities of double bed wardrobe etc we had a delightful large sofa and coffee table.

service was great as was the breakfast and staff very knowledgeable and helpful.

the lifts are a bit on the small side but work efficiently - it would be very difficult to have anything different in the lovely old building.

would stay here again and highly recommend especially if using the public transport to get around

Weather was wonderful, staff extremely helpful and polite, breakfast was good with a very good selection. The hotel was situated opposite the train station so no more travelling at this stage. Buses and Metro were on the door and all services ran on time. Added bonus was a coffee making machine on our floor (5th floor).
We would recommend this hotel to any one visiting this lovely city (Lausanne)

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views

We chose this hotel for its location, close to the station and public transport. However we were pleasantly surprised to find that it is also a very nice place to stay. The room was well equipped with a comfortable bed. Although we were at the front of the hotel and there was traffic noise this was not too bad, and there was aircon if you prefer that. The staff went to a lot of trouble to find a restaurant that did vegetarian food, which can be a little difficult in Switzerland, and also to recommend other good places to eat. The breakfast was good and varied and the serving staff on the whole very helpful, although i was surprised at reluctance to rpovide more filter coffe at 9.15. But I was very pleased that there was filter coffee and not just 'make it yourself from a machine' coffee.

I would definitely return here on another trip to Lausanne.

Room Tip: If you are worried by traffic ask for a room at the back

This hotel I booked on the other reviews on tripadvisor, thanks so much, it certainly lived up to expectations. The welcoming smile and advice started as soon as we were greeted by the lovely Pascal. He made our stay perfect as we were given the best advice re the metro card and where to visit with the kids. The rooms are lovely quiet and just what we needed, a four star hotel.
So conveniently located right opposite the train station, it is great not having to get there by a taxi. We can recommend going to the lake via metro at Ouchy and walking 20 mins or the bus to the local pool, what a day. The hotel buffet breakfast is the nicest we have had too.

Room Tip: We had two room opposite each other which was nice as we were travelling with young children.

A great hotel centrally located across from the main railway station and next door to the Metro. Although we stayed for three nights we were moving around the region of Lake Geneva so the Railway was central to our plans. The added bonus for us was this hotel. The rooms were spacious and well appointed in an older property; the staff was courteous and the breakfast set us up well for the day. Being close to the Metro means the hotel is well situated for visitors to hilly Lausanne.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to all; holiday makers; families and business trevellers.
