Perfect location when travelling by train. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Room facilities, e.g. air conditioning, electrical goods etc. very dated with some health and safety issues. Loose switches, old equipment and no USB ports, not good enough for today’s technical needs

The hotel location is superb, just opposite the train station. There are restaurants within short walking distance. The Lausanne city center and shopping district are 10 minutes walk away. Our room faced away from the railway station and the main road, so it was quiet. The hotel was quite clean. There was no air-conditioning. A portable fan was provided. Hence the room was quite stuffy. Wifi was good. The hotel staff were friendly. Overall, the experience was good.

The best thing about this property is location. It's right across from the train station and 50m from the Metro. Manon at the front desk is a GEM! She was so friendly and helpful, I had everything I needed by the time I finished check-in. The bed was the worst part. Mattress was horrible and the two twins split apart all night--not like an actual queen mattress. The pillows had almost no stuffing. Asked for two extras and together, they still didn't equal one pillow. Room was very, very clean. Pizza shop next door makes the best crust on a pizza I've ever eaten, including in Italy!

Good hotel, in good location and right next to the train station. Only thing is when I entered the room, it smelled bad, so I had to ventilate it and opened the window for awhile. Otherwise, I had no issues and the room was good and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel to other visitors
