    Location

    Everything else. What a disappointment after the Fassbind Alpha-Palmiers. Don't get misled by the Fassbind name. Stinky, really worn out and expensive. Avoid.

    Location, metro stop near, restaurants near. Ample room desk (good for work)

    No air conditioning

    Superb

    Very friendly staff who were fluent in English and helpful with giving out tourist information (as well as a 24hr public transport travel pass).

    It's not major, but wi-fi access was not free - it cost us about 9 Swiss Francs for 24hrs - a small concession for a great location, right outside a metro station.

    Fabulous

    Very comfortable, friendly staff and good location being at the exit of the metro station and close walk to main attractions.

    Breakfast was expensive and hotel decor was a little dated. Was expecting more for the money I paid

    Superb

    Modern style of this recently redesigned hotel. Excellent location, with a nice view on the cathedral (rooms with view slightly more expensive but worth the extra cost). Friendly staff.

    Free Web access only in the lobby. Bad accoustic isolation from the corridor.

    Staff were friendly, breakfast was okay but the lack of air conditioning in August made sleeping a problem in the small rooms

    The location in Lausanne was perfect with very easy access the the lake front.

    Superb

    Room spacious, bed very comfortable, good double-glazing to exclude noise from street. tv large and good. Staff helpful & flexible. Breakfast fine, no complaints there. Very handy location. Tap water drinkable. Clean and tidy appearance.

    Had dirty pillowcase to begin with but they changed it without a fuss. Street noisy but that's not their fault.

    Exceptional

    I like this hotel, i go to Lausanne every year to visit a friends and this is where i always stay! It’s in the perfect location from the Lake, Train Station, Churches, Shops and Bars (as well as if you want to drive into the mountains / or go to a Spa) Only two complaints with this hotel and it’s the tiny breakfast (for the price) and that you’ve to pay for Wifi ... Other than these two (small) things it’s the perfect hotel, very clean and staff are very friendly!

    I hate that the hotel charges customers for using WiFi ... and it's €20 per day! (I really don't understand this) Also the breakfast is very expansive and nothing to write home about.
