We booked a room just for a Saturday night. The hotel is perfectly located, could not be better, just next to the metro station and close to shops, old town and bars. On the other hands, even though the room was pretty clean, there was a smell of "old smoke" in the room (it was a non smoking room) and the pilows had a funny smell too. The rooms in general need a serious refurbishing. The other problem is the noise at night due to car traffic and the fact that the hotel is located in an aera of Lausanne with many bars and clubs. People use to shout outside until 4am. We had to use ear plugs to be able to sleep.

The hotel was very convenient & of a reasonable standard for the price your reception people were helpful & friendly with a good command of English. we did find a problem with the breakfast which was VERY over priced & lacking in good food value & WE DID NOT APPRECIATE THE STAFF MEMBER WITH A LIMITED ENGLISH STANDING OVER US TELLING WHAT WE COULD NOT EAT!!!!!!! Never found this at any of the many many hotels we have stayed at over the past months in Europe

Hotel was fine. Not spectacularly clean but 90% there, which was fine. i.e. when I got there the rubbish bin from the previous people hadn't been taken out. Staff very competent. Bit of a ridiculous internet situation -- one computer for the whole hotel, but I never had too many problems with access. Hotel in an EXCELLENT location, right next to the metro, very easy to get to -- but also 2mins walk from the old part of town i.e. the cathedral etc. Had a great stay overall. Didn't try try the breakfast but it smelled good :)
