Great hotel in Lausanne by the train station
Their customer relations were great. I accidentally broke my glasses and they came up a metal paper clip and a pair of needle nose pliers for me to fix them. Without their help, I would have taken a beautiful scenic train ride that morning with really poor vision. The room was one of the bigger ones we've ever had in Europe with a big bed, a separate dressing room, a couch and a table with two comfortable chairs. For once, neither of us had to sit on the bed. The location was perfect for us, too---right across from the train station. Highly recommend!
