Hotel Continental Lausanne
Ranked #13 of 46 Hotels in Lausanne
Reviewed 21 May 2010

Not a bad hotel but the room was quite small and on the front, overlooking the station, which was really noisy. I didn't sleep well because of the noise and the room was very hot. I also had a single bed which is never good. However the breakfast was good and there is a nice coffee shop downstairs.

I would stay there again but would ask for a quieter room.

Convenient location opposite the train station and close to some shops and restaurants. Very clean and modern room although a little on the small side and the beds are firm.

The only complaint was that the room was too warm. I could not find the controls to set the temperature. Recent upgradation of the rooms is a welcome improvement.

Stayed here for 3 nights 3/2010. Across the street from Train station so super convenient with direct train to Geneva Airport. Small coffee cafe/bar in front lobby but waiter was total professional in white blazer. PC/printer in lobby if needed, and staff made copies of other biz docs for me. Had to go next door to internet cafe for scanning/faxing. Room was clean, new and bed/pillows were quite comfortable. Mini-bar prices were outrageous so get out, see the city and enjoy. I had room facing train station, and one nite, had locals partying and yelling on the street at 3 AM, so it was noticable. Marginal, small slice of view onto the Lake over the train station though, so maybe room facing train station is worth the small view.

Good location close to central station and public transport.
Did not like at all the check out procedure: they charged my credit card in Eur instead of CHF without giving possibility to choose the currency, with 3% surcharge on exchange rate.
Be careful if you are a foreigner!

I stayed in this hotel for 6 weeks over a period between Oct 09 and Dec 09.

When I first arrived at the hotel, I wondered what I had let myself in for as the common areas look like something from the 1970s! Very dated. However, the rooms I stayed in (different each week) have all be newly renovated and bear little resemblance to the photos on here. Modern in design, each with a flat screen tv with English channels, good bathroom with shower, no bath. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy. My colleagues felt the room was small in size but I can't say that I felt it was an issue. There was a desk, two chairs and a double bed in the room with space to move around, as well as a built in wardrobe/hanging area.

The breakfast is not the best, but is edible and again, the restaurant is dated but clean and tidy.

The main reason I chose this hotel was the location, its across the road from the train station with good links to Geneva airport and its close to many good restaurants which I felt hotels like the Movenpick were lacking.

I would stay there again.

I have stayed three times in this hotel and inconsistency is the theme. The first time I found noises coming from the radiator - even though the thermostat was down to the bottom. Subsequently the rooms were reasonably quiet but I would avoid rooms near the lift

Breakfast i find a little too low-key - the coffee machine fare is mediocre; surely the two staff on duty (whilst friendly) could take an order for coffee and bring a decent pot?

I saw some comments on cleanliness . The rooms seemed ok but there was a lack of attention to detail - the rug had a toothpick left in it and ... I trod on it. I mentioned it to the receptionist who whilst polite didn't apprear to take in the seriousness of the offending object.

Great location - that doesn't change each time!
