Nice hotel but not great

Posted 04-Jan-2015
Pros: Staff and Decor
Cons: Quiet room being exactly what you pay for and running water in pipes soundproofed
Location: Olympic Museum. - wonderful free with Swiss Pass. Charlie and Oona Chaplin grave Vevey area. lausanne and Geneva
I booked a "quiet" room and was given a room on 6th floor and paid extra for the privilege of wanting a relaxing time. The first room was a lovely size but had to move due to noise factor of a really noisy child running around all night. I appreciate that children need to do this but the point was I paid extra for a quiet room and this was not and so had to move to a new room on 8th floor . This was a smaller room but was better than the larger room as another bizarre thing was you could hear the water from other floors showers passing down a pipe can you believe it right by the first bed! The shower when being used I would advise ensure the curtains are closed in main room if light on as you can see clearly the person showering. It is a touristy hotel and be careful if you don't pay for a quiet room you are placed in the rooms below the reception and near fitness centre. The staff are wonderful and deserve 5 stars but although the decor is lovely I would prefer to go to a hotel where a quiet room usually means that. I have stayed in many hotels in last 19 days in Switzerland and this is an ok hotel but prefer when I pay extra for something to get what I paid for

Hôtel agréable et original.

Posted 29-Dec-2014
Pros: Jolie chambre, salle de bain fonctionnelle. Café et thé à disposition.
Cons: Attention, toutes les prestations annexes très onéreuses : parking (20FrCH), petit-déj (22FrCH). Dommage!
Location: Circulation dans Lausanne très compliquée...Difficile de se repérer et de passer du haut au bas.
Etape d'une nuit en famille pour une expérience helvète. Chambre pour 3 agréable.

Nice, very clean Business style Hotel.

Posted 16-Dec-2014
Pros: Internet connection very good with dual sockets, especially handy as I forgot my adaptor.
Cons: My only negative point is very minor and that is that one sachet of coffee/tea/sugar is not enough even for one person for one night.
Location: Close enough to walk to most amenities such as the lake, town and mainline station.
Service and hotel were excellent. No disturbing noise from street or even from the nearby lift central to everything and close to train station and metro.

Etwas abseits

Gutes Hotel, etwas abseits gelegen. Parkmöglichkeit beim Hotel, kostet extra. Ordentliches Frühstück im Glasdom auf dem Dach.

Great Hotel

Posted 20-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed there for 3 days. The staff answered all my questions -- even my dumb question of how to use the microwave, but I figure Swiss microwaves might be different in terms of knobs, etc. Anyway, they're not. :p They were nice about answering the question through. The room was very clean and I like the wild decor of the hotel -- the room numbers are on the hallway carpet, FYI. The carpet in my room was colored brown and I think it's microfiber so neither of those helped in believing the carpet was clean, but it was sufficiently clean. Wifi reception, at least in my room on the 8th floor, was non-existent. I camped in the lobby for wifi when j needed it. Neighborhood is safe and really close to a laundromat, the Luasanne train station, and the subway line -- it's like 100m away and there is only one subway line. There's a Coop and Aperto nearby for food if you think Swiss restaurants are expensive. I would stay again. I stayed in a single bed room. Good size for one person -- its compact but there are plenty of shelf spaces, a safe, tv with HD, and a decent bed. It was quiet too, but probably because I was on the 8th floor.

Swiss Delight

Posted 12-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
We can't say enough good things about Agora, they went out of their way to accommodate us. The Hotel is new and is way cool on decor. The breakfast area has a beautiful view. The close location to the metro was also helpful.

muito aconchegante

Posted 08-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel bem tranquilo, limpo e agradavel. O unico ponto eh o café da manhã, um pouco caro, mas a vista para o lago, paga o valor.
