We stayed at Hotel le Lausanne for three nights. We really liked the location: very close to the train station, yet away from the hustle and bustle which normally comes with it; a pleasant 10 min walk to the Promenade des Anglais and about 15 min walk to the old town.
The hotel was very clean. Our room was beautifully decorated and had a decent amount of storage space.
The bathroom was good. While the shower was rather small, the water pressure was very good, and the temperature constant. So we really appreciated the ability to take a proper shower after the long day on the beach.
The bed was a bit hard to our liking. If you prefer your beds on the softer side, you might find it slightly uncomfortable.
The only slightly negative side I'd highlight was the air conditioning system. It only has the on and off button, and when we called the staff to ask for the temperature to be lowered, they said they would have to come and program it themselves. Even after those adjustments it was still too hot in the room, which made it difficult to sleep for my partner.
Lastly, the reception staff were rather indifferent. While one would not expect the 5 star service in this hotel, a smile goes a long way - and doesn't cost anything. In the 4 days we were there we were only greeted warmly once, by a lovely gentleman who was on a nightshift. A little smile would have made the experience so much nicer.
