Review of Hotel AlaGare
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Jan 2020
Our room was small by North American standards but certainly all you need.
Central location, near to the metro station (that you will use every day with the free transit pass issued by the hotel) is fantastic. We faced out on the quiet, mainly pedestrian street. There are lots of lively cafes close by and a small farmers market one day. We thought the breakfast was very good with ample variety.

My room was on the street level, and the window had direct access to some garbage cans. Room was clean, but not very modern. A little bit old-fashioned. Breakfast had not very much variety. But the train in the floor is cool.

Dear Madam, Sir,
Thank you for having taken the time to rate our hotel on Internet. We mostly appreciate it.
Though Hotel AlaGare is located right next to Lausanne train station, most of its rooms look onto a pedestrian street or a yard. I suggest you specify this choice for your next reservation or contact me directly so that the type of room fits exactly your needs.
While hoping to have the pleasure of welcoming you soon again in hotel AlaGare and with my kindest regards.
Sincerely yours.
Jean-Baptiste Bagi,
Hotel Manager

Basic room, faced the train tracks but no noise from the trains. You get a transport pass , metro very close by. , easy access to the lake. Great desk staff helped in an early arrival and another minor crisis.
Thank you !

Although the room was very small and old, it was very confortable and silent, with two beds together which turned into a double sized bed.
The location was great, right near the train station.
I loved the breakfast, but I missed the scrambled eggs - there was only boiled eggs.
I was surprised with the free transportation and free museum ticket - it was very very usefull!
Overall I loved mt stay, thank you very much!

Stayed here for week while visiting out daughter in Lausanne. 4 min from station which was perfect as we visited several places near by via trains and they were always on time - Chillon castle, vineyards, Bern and Geneva , all excellent for day trips . You also get complimentary metro travel card for the length of your stay. . Ferry and lake only few minutes walk or metro if you don’t want to climb up back to the hotel. Hotel rooms might look basic but perfectly functional, clean. Good shower and toilet - small but clean . In room tea and coffee facilities was really a treat . Convenient location as we can have a day out, and then back to the hotel for a quick freshen up to go for a meal. Breakfast was really fantastic with lots of choices- variety of breads, meat, cheeses, nuts , cereals fruits, yogurt, spreads , boiled eggs., pastries. Gives you a good start for the day. Ladies who look after the breakfast area were very efficient and made sure there was plenty of supply and the place was tidied up . Reception staff was also very helpful, polite and friendly. Thank you . I will definitely be coming back when I visit my daughter next time.
