I stayed in this hotel for two nights for a congress taking place in the Beaulieu (city centre). During this time, it was very hard to get a room at all in Lausanne, and unless you were willing to pay very high prices you had to do with a room on the outskirts of Lausanne. So the Starling it was! Although the hotel is perfectly situated for those visiting the EPFL (which is right across the road) my trip to the Beaulieu took me on average 40 minutes, which is quite long, despite the fact that the metro and bus connections that I had to take were quite frequent. The hotel has very modern rooms with comfortable beds. The staff in the hotel is business-like friendly, but they are not overly active in helping you out with problems. For instance, when I wanted to check my email and found that there was a very slow internet connection inside the hotel room, the person behind the counter in the lobby kindly but courtly said there there was nothing he could do about it, after informing if perhaps I was busy downloading large amounts of data, which struck me if he was believing this was all my own fault. Staff in the hotel restaurant was very friendly however, and the food was good, as was the view across the lake. All in all it was not a bad hotel, which I can recommend.
