No FrillsPosted Jun 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a basic hotel..no frills. The room itself was small for 3 people, very small. The room was clean and basic. Self parking was a little walk from the hotel, but it was noted as off site. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, there was space by the metro stop that was scary! The place was filled with homeless, meth heads. Absolutely scary!! Yet, Monday morning, was a different scene with students, business people and food carts. I always had an uneasy feeling of constantly looking over my shoulder. The resturant, Bruxelles, across the street was lively and good food. Because of the small walkway, noise was a factor all night. Breakfast was typical Euopean fare and actually pretty good. Danella was an angel with morning coffee.

Good location; small roomPosted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small, but comfortable. The water pressure was incredible. The only real complaint was that the soap and shampoo in the bathroom came from a single dispenser.

Nice Comfortable Hotel, centrally locatedPosted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: Location and convenience
Location: Metro M2 station a short walk away, to connect to the main railway station and the lakeside. Several restaurants nearby.
Comfortable, central location very convenient for public transport and for numerous restaurants. Breakfast on the top floor with splendid views from the terrace.

Hotel crystalPosted Sep 26, 2013
Cons: refurbish top to bottom
Difficult to find. Hotel has 1970's look and feel, very basic. Room overlooked very noisy street with noise all night long, no air con so room was hot and bed uncomfortable. Very tired looking and basic interior. However staff were friendly and breakfast surprisingly very good. Lausanne itself is disappointing, the wealthy lake front area is great but the city centre is on the decline with, drugs being dealt in the street (in the square near the hotel) and a lot of unpleasant characters around in the evening and lots of beggars. Plenty of areas to keep out of after dark.

Old Town charmPosted Jul 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel Crystal is a very kitschy hotel in Old Town Lausanne. Great ambiance and very comfortable. Nice patios.

great staff, great locationPosted Jun 28, 2013
Pros: terrace for breakfast - great cheese!
Cons: small, hot room.
Location: unbeatable location
Lovely small hotel, great location in the centre of Lausanne. My room had a wonderful view of the lake, mountains and cathedral. Brilliant breakfast, fabulous to eat out on the terrace. However, the room was quite small, very warm and stuffy, and the decor a little dated. Staff friendly and helpful.
