Winding up through steep streets overlooking Lake Geneva, Lausanne is a lively city filled with restaurants, music venues, and theaters. The eight-kilometer Vuachere Trail, running between Lake Geneva and the Jorat Woods, provides a slice of nature in the bustling metropolis. Lausanne, which began as a military camp during the Roman Empire, is also home to museums on subjects including archaeology, history, and art.see all hotels in Lausanne

"Worth the price!"
Hotel Continental is right across from the Lausanne Train Station. I usually avoid hotels next to train stations as I worry they are just hotels of convenience and economy. For a recent week long conference, Hotel Continental was the designated hotel so I reluctantly booked there. Whatever curb appeal it lacked, the staff more than made up for it. When […] it rained, I was able to borrow the hotel's large umbrella. Very thoughtful and appreciated. Yes, the rooms are very small, but the decor is nice and the bathrooms clean and modern. I was impressed by the full size hair dryer and rain shower nozzle. If I must be critical, then it is the apparent existence of only one iron for the entire hotel. I asked the front desk for the use of an iron, and was asked to finish my ironing immediately since another guest was waiting for it! Really? All in all, the hotel's proximity to everywhere makes it an ideal location Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very Convenient Location and Great views"
We had a very pleasant stay at the Continental Hotel. On our arrival there was some confusion with the booking made. Although we had booked for 3 people (two adults and a 12 yr old child), the reservation only mentioned two adults. So we were given a room with two single beds. The next day however the manager surprised us by moving us to a larger room […] with a great view! It came with two beds and a sofa with lots more room and it made a big difference. The staff were very helpful and were willing to give us the information we needed to get around Lausanne and sight see. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
1 minute walk to Train Station, Check-in was the most expedious, everything was ready and waiting for us. Rooms are huge by Swiss stds. and A/C is great to have in summer. Luassane does get hot!. Breakfast was good too. I will highly recommend if it fits your budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I love staying here!"
I love staying at this hotel! I travel to Lausanne 2-3 times per year for business reasons. This hotel is very convenient if you are arriving by train from the airport. I just wheel my suitcases across the plaza and am ready to check in minutes later. Believe me when you are heading back to the States on a very early am flight you will really appreciate […] the proximity of the train station and need only a few minutes to walk to the train. Additionally a fabulous full breakfast spread is available every morning with many yummy choices and delicious coffee to get you going. Included as well is a Metro card for use on the Metro which is very convenient to avoid all of the steep hills. I was on it all the time. The room was very nice this trip and very quiet. Air-conditioning worked great. My only complain is I wish the in room refrigerator was colder, it cooled but was not cold. I must not forget the very important perk of FREE WIFI! That is a huge reason why I choose this hotel. Between the breakfast and WIFI I am saving alot of money. Otherwise I was very satisfied as always am looking forward to my next business trip! P.S. - All the staff is SUPER too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location to train station is perfect"
Location, location, location! Perfect hotel for late night arrival on the train. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Across street from main train station"
The front desk staff were awesome! The always answered my questions with a smile and never seemed to be inconvenienced. I love this place and I will stay there again. My only complaint was that the bed was a little too firm, but otherwise, the hotel rates at least 4 stars in my opinion. The complimentary breakfast was terrific - including hot service […] foods.

"Continental Hotel, Lausanne"
Across the street from the railroad station and next to the subway so very conveniently located. They let me check in several hours early. It was abnormally warm and the room had no A/C so I spent a couple of uncomfortable nights. The TV kept going out though staff would come up to fix it. Breakfast is continental style, no huge banquet but adequat […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel Experience"
I travel frequently to Lausanne and found this hotel incredibly convenient and the amenities terrific. The fact that the hotel is directly across the street from the train station (which is a nice one) is fantastic. From Geneva Airport it is so simple to get to Lausanne and simply wheel your luggage across the street and into the hotel lobby. It sure […] made the airport return trip easier walking back across the street to the train at the crack of dawn. The Continental Hotel also provides a free Metro card for use while you are in Lausanne. The new Metro system is fantastic and as Lausanne is quite a steep cobblestoned city so it is quite nice to be able to get around on the Metro. The business I was visiting was directly across the street from a station and the Continental Hotel had a Metro stop steps away from its front door. Addtionally this hotel provides FREE Internet service! This is huge in my book as every other hotel I have stayed in charged separately. Annoying. Also the Continental Hotel had a great Buffet Breakfast which was also included! I stayed in a different hotel the next weekend and that hotel charged 12 CH per day for internet and 22 CH for a breakfast. The Continental Hotel breakfast dining room is on the 2nd floor just above the plaza in front of the Train Station. It is quite pleasant to sit there and have a pleasant breakfast with a pleasant view. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again if I get a good rate as I did on Hotels.com, the next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pleasant Hotel at a Great Location"
Hotel is across the street from RR station. The metro is next door. Hotel is a nice place with a decent buffet breakfast. We choose it for the location as we were travelling by train. Hotel met our expectations. It is clean and quiet and the metro next door is just perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good room for a night"
Hotel very well positioned for railway station & centre of town. Probably needs a bit of a facelift. Rooms small but functional and staff pleasant. Overall, fine for an overnight business stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good value, and helpful staff"
Arrived tired after 2 overnight flights, and staff found me a quiet room. Breakfast was included and was excellent - hot and cold buffet and very good coffee. Location is directly across the road from the main railway station, and hotel included a travel card for the Lausanne Metro for the duration of my stay as part of the cost. Metro card useful as […] the old town is VERY uphill from the hotel, but with a metro pass it is only one or two stops to the most interesting parts of old town. Free high-speed wifi, and a great shower in my room. Negatives: none really - the room was quite small, but standard for older hotels in Europe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in this hotel from 3_7 oct. 2012, for a family of four it was great, the location is perfect to reach with train, the staff are very friendly, the breakfast is great and the room was big and clean enough for children to play, we will stay here next time for sureGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good hotel."
Everything is perfect. Free water in room. Free internet. McDonalds 50 meters away open til 1am very convenient for late night snacks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay in Vausanne."
We only stayed for two nights, but the staff were most helpful about where to go, what to see and most of all, when I had a problem (not with the hotel), they responded manifincently and it was resolved quickly. I left something behind when we left.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great base for Paris"
This is a great place to stay, close to a main train station and major department stores. Yes the rooms are small but they have everything you need. Only issue was although they offered a late checkout on the last day and it was confirmed the housemaid kept on walking in on you on the last day expecting you to have gone. Otherwise staff were incredibly […] helpful and friendly, room was clean and location very convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to train station and the lake"
It's a nice hotel. It's across the street from the train station and about a 20 minute walk from the garden/forest preserve that runs along the lake. There is a restaurant/bar inside but there are other affordable dining spots on the street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Free travel card for within Lausanne (important cause its very hilly), and free WIFI internet. Good location, across from Lausanne Gare Olympic intercity train station, next to a metro line. Valet parking (whilst cheap) is about 300m away (though they will happily park and pick up the car for you). Good service. Decent breakfast. Modern interior. Lifts […] are very old school but they work. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Extremely convenient location. Staff very helpful and friendly. Ask for a quiet room as in the front (facing the railway station) it can be a bit noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice and convenient"
Across the road from the train station and next to the metro station, so going anywhere in Lausanne is easy. (The hotel gives you a card for the metro as part of your stay). The metro takes you to all the worthwhile sights. Rooms comfortable and well-appointed and quiet - very pleasant stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Doesn't look the best from the outside, but inside was a pleasant surprise. The staff were very friendly to us and always willing to help.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better deals in Lausanne"
Poor Breakfast Maid did not make my room Not very helpful reception staff Room OK Good locationGenuine Expedia guest review
Not very spacious but well-kept and clean room. Very convenient location across from SBB train station and right next to an underground tram line that gets you reasonably close to most tourist traps in town. Courteous and helpful multilingual staff. Not much protein at breakfast (mostly baked goods and canned fruit), but when in Lausanne... All in all, […] good value for the money if marble lobbies, piano bars, and mints on your pillow aren't essential lodging criteria for you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A bit pricy but good for location and service"
Excellent location just across the road from Lausanne Gare. I would stay there again. Breakfast good. Receptionists polite, friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location tiny room"
Although this hotel is conveniently located opposite the Lausanne Gare. However, the room I stayed in was very tiny, I had to litteraly walk sideways to pass between the wall and my bed to pass from one side of the room to the other. Moreover, the rooms are not well insulated and I could here my neighbour's TV and noise whenever he was talking on the […] phone! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent welcome at the end of a long day. Good room, comfortable bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
very nice accomodation, not very cheap but extremely near to public transports. Ticket for buses included for all the period of stay. Rich breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel at perfect location"
The location is perfect: across the railway station entrance, next to the street leading up to the historic center of the city. My room was very quiet. Breakfast was included and quite nice. Wifi was free. The bed was comfortable. What else do you need? That was all I needed...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Oldie but a goodie"
Clean and tidy but hotel a bit tired and rooms need a bit of refreshing. Staff were really great. First time I've been to a hotel and they have your internet password ready for you when you check in, so you don't have ask once you are in your room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient Location with all the Amenities"
We stayed for 3 nights and found the Comfort Room very roomy. Our room was facing the train station so had a lovely view of the lake. We were also on the top floor, which had a balcony, so we could open the door and get a good panoramic view. Loved that we received a transportation pass and we used it throughout out stay. It made getting anywhere in […] Lausanne easy. As we took the train to Lausanne from Italy, the location was very convenient right across from the train station. We also took the train to the Geneva airport when we left which was cost effective, comfortable and easy. The buffet continental breakfast was good and we also ate at the Grill Olympia one evening. Service and the food were fine. We also ate at the Croix d'Ouchy which was excellent, food and service. The servings were very large and we found that they could be easily shared.

"Good Location, Good Hotel"
The hotel is opposite the main train station, and virtually next to the metro line. We parked our car in the multi-storey station car park, which was clean, safe and well lit. Our room was large, in a neutral colour scheme, with a big bed, air-con, flat screen TV with international channels and one complimentary small bottle of mineral water. The hotel […] provides a local transport pass, which could be useful. Breakfast was OK, nothing special, and a bit disorganised, the 'breakfast' dining room needs a major overhaul. However, considering the price and location this is not a bad place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel plassert midt i blinken"
Skeptisk da vi kom ut fra tog-stasjonen og så hvor vi skulle bo, men ble veldig fornøyd etterhvert. Rent og fint med god service. Godt plassert i forhold til tog og trikk. Anbefales:-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
ローザンヌ駅のド真ん前。部屋はとても広く、ソファーもあってとてもゆっくりできました。ネスレ本社が近く（ヴヴェイ）にあるせいか、エレベーターホールの共有部分にネスレ製のドリップコーヒーメーカーがありましたが、お湯が沸かせるコーメーカーが室内にはなく、困りました。それ以外はとても快適でした。朝食はコンチネンタルスタイルで温かいお食事はありませんが、十分でした。Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel bien situé, à proximité immédiate de la gare. Chambre agréablement rénovée mais très petite (40 cm pour passer entre le pied du lit et le mur...) pour les 1ers prix. Salle de bien standard avec douche agréable. Petit dej correct. Service professionnel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very friendly staff"
The welcomming commitee makes you really feel wanted and understanding that a modern business man needs more than one logon id is perfect. The room is rather small with a narrow passage between the bed and the wall. The breakfast is included and as such ok but not more. I tried the restaurant where the breakfast was served for dinner as well and cannot […] recommend this unfortunately. The bar downstairs although has good atmosphere and lively staff, so that is fine for a drink or two. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
