“An experience!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2009

This hotel was ok. We had a room on the top floor of the hotel. The room was clean and modern and very lilac.

The bathroom was hilarious. Some sort of plastic pod - a bit like an aircraft toilet. Neither me or my husband are particularly large but we still found it a struggle. Don't even try to get two people in the bathroom at the same time.

The breakfast was poor. Stale croissants and brown bananas anyone? No restaurants but there are lots of really nice places to eat within easy walking distance.

Odd stay - won't be going back.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2009

Interesting conversion, with even more building work going on out back. The railway line was quite close, so a bit of noise from that, but not enough to keep us awake. The staff were pretty trendy - either dressed all in black or white. Friendly, without being overbearing.

As noted elsewhere, the bathroom pod was ridiculously cramped: impossible to sit on the loo without banging knees against the door.

Breakfast was self-service, and one morning pretty much everything ran out before 9, both food and crockery.

Well situated for the town centre, with plenty of places to eat; the lake was a bit further away, but manageable.

The Hotel du Theatre is in a converted town house, in a very convenient location to the town center and train station. On the plus side, it is extremely clean. I loved that. But it is also ultra-minimalist, to the extreme.

Our room was facing the back garden, so it was very quiet. But it was so small, and like a monastic cell, as a French-speaking reviewer also said. No artwork, no brochures, no printed information of any kind (like TV channels, check-out time, etc), no coffee apparatus, no clock. Just pastel walls and bare wood floor. Strangely, the duvet on the double bed was for a single bed, so we had to huddle together to both fit under it.

The bathroom was the weirdest thing, even though it was very clean.It is a pre-built plastic module that fits tightly into a corner of the room. When the door is shut, one's knees hit it when sitting on the commode (and I am an average size, thin, woman). The shower is one corner of the module, with a curtain that sticks to you when wet. The drain is the floor itself. There is hardly anywhere to put anything! The sink is pre-molded of plastic and very small. The idea is good for a futuristic look, maybe in some design book, but it doesn't work practically.

Breakfast is included, and is good and plentiful. It's self-serve, which I prefer. One can even find some healthy things to eat, which I have found difficult to do in Europe. Granola, fruit, yogurt, juice, good wholegrain bread as well as croissants.

  • Liked — cleanliness, good location

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Open since 2005, l'Hotel du Theatre was transformed from a gentlemen's home to a charming hotel. Five years later, the garden rooms, << Les Chambres du Jardin>> were added. This new wing, with its modern architecture, is situated in the garden and contrasts beautifully with the original hotel. In total there are 31 rooms in different styles, a breakfast room and a bar. The terrace and the garden, a taste of paradise in the middle of town, are irresistible for a relaxing breakfast with the rising sun or a nap at the end of the afternoon. The hotel is situated in an ideal location in Yverdon-les-Bains, next to the Theatre Benno Besson and a few steps from the train station, the chateau and the shops. The lake is a 5-minutes walk and the thermal baths (spa) just 15 minutes away. In Summer, we propose different activities like day-trips with a private boat or cycling tours with your own guide! ... more   less
