Excellent small hotel offering bed and a decent continental breakfast. Ideal location in the car free old town and about a five minute walk downhill to the nearest metro station from which it's one stop to the main station and about another five stops to the lakeside. The hotel gives free transport passes which we used on the metro and on the buses.
Staff were very friendly and helpful all speaking good English
Room and bathroom were very clean and quiet

Paid extra for a room overlooking Lake Geneva and the Alps. Even though the road outside the hotel was noisy at times sitting on the balcony and admiring the view was well worth paying the extra for. Room was spacious with a fridge and a nice bathroom.

I had an amazing time at this hotel. I was traveling to Switzerland for the first time as a lone, young female with almost no French abilities, for business. The hotel is so conveniently located and near most of the important tourist sites in Lausanne. Fanny (and I'm sure the other people too) at the front was extremely friendly, helpful, and had great English. I felt really at home here and would definitely stop here again. Here are some things I didn't see mentioned in other reviews.
- Despite it having a common bathroom, you do get towels, shampoo (though not very good), soap, and a sink in your room. You don't get a toothbrush / toothpaste
- They have electric converters available for a returnable 10 franc / euro / dollar deposit
- You do get the free Lausanne transit pass for the duration for your stay
- They have free chocolate at the window!!
- The office closes for lunch and at night, though you can use your card to get in whenever.
Other things: I thought people mentioned the train was far or an uphill climb... um what? It's a 3 minute flat walk to the Riponne station... Also, for female travelers, I felt this place (and the area) was very safe and clean as a lone female traveler. Lastly, my internet connection was incredibly easy to log into and fast... I noticed some people complaining about this, but maybe they've fixed it since.
So yes - come here!!

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.
