Excellent hotel

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pretty much everything I needed on my recent stat in Lausanne. Quiet calm area although only minute walk from m├ętro (city centre two stops, CFF station one stop, port and lake four stops). Hotel recently modernised, to very high standard, high quality TV, comfortable bed and fast (and free) wifi. Could have done with a comfortable armchair and bigger desk, but these were my only gripes. Staff very polite, and I liked idea of coffee machine (reasonable at CHF3 a go), and newspapers available at bar area of reception 24/7. Didn't have breakfast as I never eat enough to get money's worth at buffet breakfast. However the bakers at CFF staton did wide range of bread and pastries from CHF5. Don't stay in many hotels, but this one will be hard to beat.

A surprise treasure

Posted 20-May-2014 on Hotels.com
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I stayed for only one night but the room was sufficient for one person. It had a large and comfortable shower, the bed was great and there was enough closet room and drawer space for one person. Although I checked out early, the staff allowed me to come back after I finished the cycle tour around the lake to take a shower in the workout area downstairs. The hotel was quiet, no road noise, was very clean, great staff and a surprisingly large workout area with sauna and shower. It's a hidden treasure about two blocks from the train station and about a 10 minute walk to the center of town.

very pleasant swiss stay

really enjoyed this hotel and would happily return. it had a real character and was very comfortable. the only thing i would say is that the breakfast could be improved. it didn't match the rest of the quality of the hotel. although the breakfast room was very spectacular.

Nice hotel, but no mobile reception at rooms

A nice hotel with a good location, but there was no mobile reception at my room, so I had to come out from the hotel to make calls from my mobile.

Not for romantic couples

Posted 08-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Nice and original design hotel. Hints to Swiss cows raise a smile. Friendly staff. Major problem is the curious design of sink, toilet and shower. Toilet is in the room, only separated by a curtain. This means that your room partner can hear any sound you are making. Only long married couples will not mind. Furthermore, the absence of not only shampoo, body lotion, but even any soap makes it feel like a cheap budget hotel (which the hotel is not). Please, management, consider to put a tiny little piece of soap at the sink, is that really too much asked? Your hotel and its staff deserves it.

It's in a very convenient location.

The guests get a free city public transport action card, the hotel is close to the city subway and the train station. The service is excellent & staff are very nice. Will stay again.

Very nice staff great location

Posted 03-Mar-2014
Pros: Great location
Location: Very close to the most important city attractions and the lake, everything is at walking distance
The hotel is located just a couple of blocks away from the rail way station, very close to the lake, the olympic museum and downtown. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and confortable, they gave us a ticket to use the public transportation for free for the total of days of our stay

Modern, a bit too much so for my taste

Posted 07-Feb-2014 on Hotels.com
The room was recently updated. I thought the cowboy theme was a bit kitche especially the chair in cowhide. Bed was a bit soft. Front desk was very helpful. Breakfast was ok, but at 27 chf was expensive. Take the metro about a block from the hotel rather than a taxi to and from the train station.
