We stopped in Montreux to visit friends and found this hotel delightful. It a walkable distance from the train station and reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and there was a great coffee and confection shop across the street.

Hotel is quiet - good for older couples or business travellers. It's a familty run hotel which for me is more pleasant than a chain. The hotel is located in a quiet street but very close to Lausanne station and metro. But it is a steep climb from both. My room was very clean and I liked the wooden panelling. The weather was very warm and there was no air conditioning. There was a fan in the room but the sockets were not in useful places for a fan. I had a minibar/fridge with enough space for me to keep a few items of food like cheese and fruit. The breakfast is typical continental with no cooked items - but no shortage of food and a quiet experience at the start of the day.

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to downtown Lausanne. The Tulip Inn fit the bill. I was a little concerned ahead of time that it might be a bit too far out from the old city, but as it turned out, the bus and train systems made getting around easy. There is a bus stop right around the corner from the hotel, with frequent buses coming by. So, the quiet neighborhood setting of this hotel worked out just fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful for helping us figure out the basics of getting around, etc. Breakfast was excellent and included of course. Expect a small-ish room, but very comfortable. The bathroom also is small, but clean and worked out fine. Overall, good value and a very pleasant stay.
Great location: right on the lake with great views of the pre-Alps; one minute from tube station; one minute from pharmacy, supermarket. You get a free metro/bus card when staying in Lausanne (which the hotel will hand you when you show up) so it makes it really easy to jump on the metro for four stops to get to the main train station. (Alternatively it's a 15min walk.)
Great hotel, I would recommend to everyone and I had a great many evenings watching the sunset over the mountains and the lake in the window of my room. Many rooms have patios too and if you book ahead (I was very last minute) you should be able to get one.

Hotel and service was good. Bedroom comfortable, but noisy - It overlooked the driveway to the hotel car park where there was a drain cover that need repair; vehicles driving over this caused a loud bang which one could hear from the bedroom. Also noise from the restaurant kitchen which was directly below the bedroom.
