This is an incredible property. The interior spaces are a stunning mix of classical and modern design. This hotel has old world charm but isn't the old and stuffy wealthy geriatric refuge that you might expect given it's history and location. I was pleasantly surprised and would rank this among the best properties that I have visited anywhere.
Best things about the property:
- the architecture
- tastefully executed mix of modern and classic design elements
- impeccable service (professional but very friendly)
- spacious rooms with lovely views and balconies
- large bathrooms with towel warmers
- excellent food and beverage outlets
- free in-room internet
I can't think of anything that isn't good about this property. I also thought it ended up being good value for the region -- certainly not inexpensive but I felt the premium was well deserved. This place is special.
It is a little bit farther from the city center than the Lausanne Palace. It also isn't perched on a hill so the views aren't quite as good as at the Palace. However, the rooms and public spaces are much more up to date and attractive. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Lausanne.
Unfortunately, I didn't have time to visit the spa or fitness facilities. The photos made them look quite lovely and other guests said they were quite good.
