The Hotel Continental is across from Lausanne's Main Train Station, a 10-minute walk from the Old Town and shopping area. It provides air-conditioned rooms and free Wi-Fi.
Score from 421 reviews Very good
The Agora Swiss Night is in a quiet and green area of Lausanne and has a modern spa and fitness area. It is a 3-minute walk from the train station and just over half a mile from Lake Geneva.
Score from 1908 reviews Excellent
The hotel Alpha Palmiers is a new building with unique modern architecture. Set in the middle of gardens, it is easy to forget that you are in the heart of central Lausanne.
Score from 1216 reviews Very good
Located right in the center of Lausanne, this modern, completely non-smoking hotel is only a 10-minute walk from the train station.
Score from 1093 reviews Very good
Shower floods the whole bedroom. Asked for a double bed, got a twin instead. Not very clean. Room looks like a random motel with purple tiger carpet and messy chairs.
Reception desk staff were helpful, moved me to a 1st floor room (the wifi does not work on 4th floor). The bed was comfortable & there was a kettle, tea and coffee facilities in the room. The room was quiet.
I was disappointed to find such a shabby, outdated, dark and sad building having paid more here than for other similarly priced hotels in Lausanne. Cannot see this as *** hotel. Not good value for money. The lighting in both rooms was poor.
Convenience of location
The location was good.
The hotel was dated, the room smelled quite unpleasant and I was kept awake by noisy guests. Not an experience I want to repeat and there are better options in Lausanne in the same price range.
The hotel is close to everything.
Proximity and accessibility
Facility too old Unkempt due to ongoing repairs Telephone not working in room Bed & furniture needs changing Needs total refurbishing Can benefit from some modernization Was to stay 2 nights, but checkout after the first
Everything good except the wi-fi
We had to leave very early for a radiation treatment in the nearby hospital, so we had to pay to have the breakfast earlier. And the car parking-voucher was only valid durring opening times of the parkhouse desk, so we had to pay for this also. I think for the high price, the hotel has anyway, it was too much extra cost.
The price was great, the location amazing, the reception very good, the bed comfortable
Oh dear. Wallpaper peeling off the walls in the bedroom. the breakfast bar was very adequate in layout and quality but the food was stale and the one member of staff just hovered annoyingly all the time. And my pet hate of all, WHY OH WHY do hotels have those horrible fibre pillows that make your face so hot and are so soft as to be uncomfortable. HORRIBLE HORRIBLENESS pillows so although the bed was very comfortable the nights sleep was ruined by the pillows which like the bed should be just as comfortable.
Good location Breakfast
Smoking on the balcony spoilt our sleep both nights
The location is very convenient at the heart of the city. The staff were very helful and pleasent.
Hotel City Lausanne is just an elevator & a few steps away from the Metro stop. Only a few minutes away from the train station. Lausanne Cathedral is just across the street. Walking distance only to town, shopping & supermarket.
Pub down the road very loud, mattress very hard this combination kept us up all night.
very expansive for a 3 Star Hotel. No BF included.
Location in the heart of the city next to the metro, the hotel was clean.
The guy at the reception was pretty rude, and looked annoyed when we asked for an extra bed blanket. Indeed the room was for two people but seemed to be prepared for one: only one bed (smaller then double bed), one blanket (definitely not enough for 2 people), only one candy on the pillows (there were 2 in the other room that our friends took). The room of our friend was definitely better, bigger, with a bigger bed and a nicer view, so I guess it's by chance. Superexpensive for the offered services (breakfast not included 20CHF, parking not included 15CHF per day)-- I guess you pay for the location.
Location, Staff Friendliness
Comfort of bed and pillow
Clean comfortable room, good facilities, convenient location. Excellent WiFi. Efficient and helpful staff.
clean and well located
every item is rather old...
Clealiness, walls were dirty Bath towels were not clean For the same price there are far better places
Exellent Location, not far from Subway Line and a bunch of bus line. Staff were very friendly. Beds and Sheet were amazingly comfy, bedroom were big enough to fit at least 2 more people (we booked a 3 guest). Wifi was Ok.
the fridge wasn't cold enough, not very useful when we needed to keep some drinks.
That it is central. It was good value for the money.
Because it was very hot during our stay, it was unpleasant not to be able to open the windows because of the street noise! The fans helped.
location is very good. metro in front of the hotel
