Great location, good value, and helpful staffPosted Dec 11, 2012
Pros: Location and ease of access from train
Cons: Room was small - but more than equate
Location: Excellent location near the main train station and metro
Arrived tired after 2 overnight flights, and staff found me a quiet room. Breakfast was included and was excellent - hot and cold buffet and very good coffee. Location is directly across the road from the main railway station, and hotel included a travel card for the Lausanne Metro for the duration of my stay as part of the cost. Metro card useful as the old town is VERY uphill from the hotel, but with a metro pass it is only one or two stops to the most interesting parts of old town. Free high-speed wifi, and a great shower in my room. Negatives: none really - the room was quite small, but standard for older hotels in Europe.

Good place to stay in Vausanne.Posted Sep 19, 2012
Pros: The room and the staff
Location: good for the station and city centre
We only stayed for two nights, but the staff were most helpful about where to go, what to see and most of all, when I had a problem (not with the hotel), they responded manifincently and it was resolved quickly. I left something behind when we left.

Worth the price!Posted Sep 19, 2012
Pros: great location and customer service
Cons: the room rate
Hotel Continental is right across from the Lausanne Train Station. I usually avoid hotels next to train stations as I worry they are just hotels of convenience and economy. For a recent week long conference, Hotel Continental was the designated hotel so I reluctantly booked there. Whatever curb appeal it lacked, the staff more than made up for it. When it rained, I was able to borrow the hotel's large umbrella. Very thoughtful and appreciated. Yes, the rooms are very small, but the decor is nice and the bathrooms clean and modern. I was impressed by the full size hair dryer and rain shower nozzle. If I must be critical, then it is the apparent existence of only one iron for the entire hotel. I asked the front desk for the use of an iron, and was asked to finish my ironing immediately since another guest was waiting for it! Really? All in all, the hotel's proximity to everywhere makes it an ideal location
Very Convenient Location and Great viewsPosted Aug 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
We had a very pleasant stay at the Continental Hotel. On our arrival there was some confusion with the booking made. Although we had booked for 3 people (two adults and a 12 yr old child), the reservation only mentioned two adults. So we were given a room with two single beds. The next day however the manager surprised us by moving us to a larger room with a great view! It came with two beds and a sofa with lots more room and it made a big difference. The staff were very helpful and were willing to give us the information we needed to get around Lausanne and sight see.
