Middle of nowhere

Posted 22-Oct-2014
Pros: Very comfortable room with every possible facility.Difficult to move it!
Location: It's in the middle of a university campus. You can walk to the lake but unless you are attending a conference there's nothing to do.
Can't fault the hotel itself. Staff, facilities all very good. But a long way from Lausanne. Metro service 10 minutes walk.

Perfect location for EPFL

Posted 03-Oct-2014
Pros: Nice room Great rate Helpful staff The gadgets and design innovations they showcase in the rooms and which are available for purchase separately
Cons: Doubles or single only for single occupancy. More comfortable Greater choice of pillows - firm would have suited better.
Location: The Rolex learning Center is across the road and lausanne is a bus ride away. Visitors get free travel, so go explore!
I was in Lausanne to do some business with a company in the innovation park and proximity was a major factor. Having also stayed at their sister hotel in Geneva, I had really high expectations and I'm pleased to say I wasn't particularly disappointed. A different style to the Geneva hotel, but the standard was similar - clean rooms, well specified , breakfasts were adequate but not awesome. Great room design and decor. Though I would avoid the twin beds the next time. Either go double or single. Twin for one individual is a bit of a pain. Rates were great too and the staff really helpful and friendly in all bits of the experience - front of house and bistro staff. It's my #1 in the lausanne area even if it's not downtown.

Very Swiss, functional hotel

Posted 12-Jul-2014
Pros: Good design, clean rooms, well above average hotel dining
Cons: Slow bar service, stingy with replacement of in room toiletries; mini bar prices obscene
Location: Cab is 28 CHF from Lausanne station - wld be pretty steep on a daily basis. By public transport, train to Renen, M1 metro and a walk takes ca 25 mins
Room was well designed; bed comfortable, good layout, nice shower etc. Air conditioning in my room was broken and despite reporting it twice was never fixed over a 5 night stay - this was annoying since it was humid whilst I was there. Food at the hotel was surprisingly very good; only minor complaint very slow service at the bar (not enough staff to cope with high occupancy)

Starling Review

Posted 22-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
The Hotel was clean, the staff for the most part was very helpful. The overall cost was good. The room privacy, smoked glass between the bathroom and the sleeping quarter was different, while my wife was sleeping, I couldn't turn on the bathroom light as it would light up the bedroom. I would definately stay here again, realizing it is a 10 min walk to the train for other restaurants. This location more suited for me when I travel for business.

Beautiful room, beautiful view!

Posted 06-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
We loved our stay here. The room was amazing and beautiful. The view was breathtaking! Very friendly staff! You have to pay to park and the breakfast, while extensive and delicious, is pricey. Not a lot closeby that we could tell, but the hotel is extremely comfortable and nice!

Perfect if you are at EPFL

Great hotel. Very expensive add-ons such as a glass of wine at the bar, but hey, this is Switzerland
