Accidentally Stayed in This 5-Star
Posted May 19, 2014
We stayed in a charming small hotel on the lake near Lausanne 25 years ago. I thought this was it. I booked it despite the high price, for sentimental reasons. It was not the same hotel. Everything about it was great--especially the staff, decor and location. It's not quite as it appears on a map, though. It looks like it's right on the lake, but there is a very busy, wide promenade between the hotel and the lake. I have no complaints. In fact, we got one of only 4 or 5 rooms in the whole hotel that have a tiny balcony, which we truly enjoyed. If you want to splurge in Lausanne, I would say this is the place. Make sure you get a lake view room (most are not), and better yet, one of 2 on the lakeside with a balcony. I would personally try again to find that sentimental one in a quiet neighborhood, right on the lake.
