When we arrived we was greeted by a very rude receptionist who didn't acknowledge our request of a quiet room on a higher level which had been verified before our stay. She gave us the worst room on ground level which was very sub standard. No wardrobe in the room, only in the bathroom. The room was next to the entry and exit round to the motel and the noise was horrendous. After complaining to Expedia call centre she phoned us from reception and offered us a better room on first floor level which was much better and only £10 extra per night. So be careful when using this motel. It is only 2 star if that and not cheap at £100 per night without breakfast.

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.
Very easy to walk to from the hotel -- downhill a short distance. Strange not to have a front desk (or anyone), but the keybox worked fine. The restaurant across the street, Le Milan, serves enormous dishes of wonderful homemade pasta. We could have shared one plate...ordered two!
