“Super cozy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

I absolutely love the room that we had in this hotel. It was a little cramped with the bed taking up most of the room, along with a small desk, but the walls are lined with a carpet-like wallpaper. Its dark colour makes the room feel smaller, but it gives it a nice atmosphere. The bathroom in the room was also great, newly refinished. And the towel hangers are heated, which is an added bonus if you come in from the rain. It's also located a stone's throw away from the metro station.

The disadvantages are that Internet is not free in this hotel and the breakfast is pricey considering how little appealing food there is to eat (I got a 20CHF croissant!). Also, the bed felt like I was sleeping on a box spring with plastic foil on it.. not a pleasant experience.

I love the way the rooms look, so I would considering staying here again.

Great hote, excellent service and perfect location literally half a minute walk from the metro station.
To our surprise the hotel gave us 24 hour passes for public transport for free.

Clean and fancy rooms, only positive things to say about this place.

We stayed in Lausanne for two nights. The original plan was to only stay for one night before heading south towards Italy, however we liked the town and the hotel so much that we decided to stay for one more night!

I stayed for one night during my business trip (3rd floor). The location is convenient - 10 minutes walking distance from the Lausanne station (or 2 metro stops). The receptionist was very friendly, warm and helpful. Breakfast was typical Swiss assortment (bread, cheese, ham, yogurt, fruit); loved the rich (i.e. buttery) croissant and pain au chocolat.The room was small but clean, nice, with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was also clean and modern. There were no English channels on the TV, and the use of the internet in your room is free for the first 30 minutes only. But, I will not hesitate to stay here again.

Spent a night in this hotel during a business trip. Cozy place with nice rooms and delicious breakfast. When I looked at the hotel for the first time, there was a price of USD 400 per night. It is definitely not worth this price but for USD100 it is very convenient place and location to stay in.

The rooms are well decorated, in an old style. It is clean.
We stayed there 4 nights. However the first one, we could not well sleep due to ongoing noises in the radiator. Next morning, they put us in another room, and it was fine.
The bathroom had a ceiling to be maintained (condensation) and painted. The shower
Strange thing at end of 2013: the internet wifi is still to be paid...
The TV is old (the set box) but more important, the provided channels are only few local or French ones (and not well settled to navigate through). No International news channels, no Asian channels, no movies channels... If you are not into TV, then perfect.

However, to be honest, we got an offer, and for the value it was fine.
Should be better classified as a 3rd star hotel, except if few things are fixed asap.

The location is great and the building style is a plus.
So it is a 4 for us.

Room Tip: avoid maybe rooms near the subway

The hotel is superbly located at the metro station, so getting around Lausanne is a breeze. The rooms are quaint, with fabric on the walls, but don't look too closely anywhere, as it's all getting a bit tatty. The beds were very strange - a bit like a boarding school, complete with strange plastic-type liner under the sheets! The staff are frosty, totally uninterested in helping, and miserly - the water in the mini bar was not replaced, the towels were small and old, and there is nowhere to sit except your room or a very boring foyer. There is really no ambience except in the individual rooms. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel, but how it could possibly be four stars is a total mystery.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the metro have a balcony, which is lovely, and the metro itself is very quiet.

Our room was very pretty with a sort of toile wallpaper. Very high ceilings, even on the middle floor. Beautiful, clean bathroom with modern shower. Nice fluffy towels.

The staff at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us with a problem with our rental vehicle; they made phone calls on our behalf without hesitation.

The hotel is outside of the Old Town area but within walking distance and you are given complimentary tickets for the metro during your stay. Parking and wifi for a fee. We were there on a Sunday night and found a great rate on their website. Everything in Switzerland is expensive so we were very pleased to get a hotel of this quality for under 100 euros.
