Hotel Regina
Ranked #30 of 46 Hotels in Lausanne
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This is a lovely little hotel right in the pedestranised centre of the old town. We arrived by train so parking was not an issue. Our room was extremely clean and quiet, had a good sized and again scrupulously clean bathroom and a view of the Cathedral. It was a five minute walk - downhill - to the Flon metro stop and we used our free travel pass extensively on the metro and on the buses.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, providing a Swiss adapter for my IPad - general continental ones (ie for France or Spain for example) don't work in Switzerland.
Breakfast is a well supplied buffet, and fresh croissants and brioche along with tea and coffee are served at your table.
We would definitely stay here when we visit Lausanne again

Room Tip: room 3 47 (and I imagine 2 47 and 1 47) has a good sized bathroom and a view of the Cathedral

It's location is the very near center of the city and very close to Ouchy where you can access
the lake and boat deck. It's not beside the road so you need to ask the local people when you
don't have a map.

The hotel gave us a free transportation pass during the stay and guests can use the near parking garage with reduced rate. But somewhat far from the hotel.

Room is very simple and clean and water pressure is ebough to enjoy a hot shower.

The breakfast is plain but the dishes were really nice and traditional.

Overall nice hotel but like many other cities in Switzerland there are some pickpocket problem
and looks like unsafe to walk at night.

Room Tip: I strongly recommend unload the bags first then park. The parking garage is more than 10 minutes w...

Unpretentious and genuinely comfortable small hotel. Very nice compact room with high quality fittings. Functional if small bathroom, but I have seen a lot smaller.

Breakfast is typical continental style buffet. Staff are friendly and efficient. Very clean, as you would expect. My room on inner side was very quiet.

Location is excellent, in middle of the car-free old town shopping and a 3 min walk from Flon metro connected by 1 stop to main station, and a 5 min ride to Ouchy and the Lake Geneva promenade.

The hotel is charming, exceptionally clean and the rooms are very nice. When we were there it was very hot. Our room had a one speed fan, but it was difficult to sleep due to the heat and no circulation. The breakfast is lovely and the staff are terrific, with great suggestions for day trips.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, it may have been cooler on the first.

I stayed - for a week, in May 2014) - in this hotel. This was my 4th stay in the same hotel. I chose this hotel for it's location - in the middle of Lausanne's hustle and bustle, next to bus station, and 3 minutes walk to the Metro station. Room is small but comfortable, nice Wi-Fi, and good breakfast in the morning. Plus, the friendly touch of the hotel owner who is always there in the morning. An excellent hotel for the price in Lausanne. You will not get any better priced hotel in that category.

I stayed for several days on two separate occasions at the Hotel Regina in Lausanne. Conveniently located a few minutes away from the Flon Metro station, it is a no frills hotel in the old part of the city. The rooms are small but clean. The beds are firm and comfortable. The bathrooms are pretty tiny but sufficient. There is free wifi, but it is extremely slow - don't expect to transfer large files without long waits. The staff are cheerful and speak perfect English. Breakfast is the same every day - standard Continental fare. There is no air conditioning, but the rooms have ceiling fans and at least when I was there it was cool enough so as not to be uncomfortable. There is also a tiny, tiny elevator that is helpful if you are on the 5th floor and have luggage. Like everything in Switzerland, it is not cheap - I paid something like 135 CHF per night in late May. Not a luxury hotel but if you want to be close to sights in Lausanne, you could do a lot worse.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Cathedral.

Hotel Regina is an excellent hotel in the heart of beautiful Lausanne. The rooms are spacious, quiet and very clean. Michael is a gracious and helpful host. We'd stay there again and recommend it highly.
