Central of the town but far from the railway station (about 20 min walk). But it is easy to access if you use the metro (2nd stop from GARE Lausanne). When you stay the hotel, you can get the Public transportation card. It was very useful. Little noisy due to tram. The room was clean, good staff. 街の中心に位置しているが、鉄道の駅からは遠い。坂が多い街なので、トランクを持って徒歩で移動する場合は20分くらいかかるが、地下鉄を使えば2駅目なので問題ない。また、ホテルでもらえる公共交通機関乗り放題のカードがとても便利だった。トラムがホテルのすぐ隣を走るので、ややうるさい。部屋は清潔。スタッフも親切。

Cette fois nous étions au premier étage, la chambre n'étant pas climatisée, il faisait chaud et nous aurions aimé pouvoir ouvrir la fenêtre.... mais rue très très bruyante, à 4 h du mat des gens dansaient dans la rue au son de leur auto radio.... Bref, la nuit fut courte.....Sinon l'accueil est toujours aussi sympathique et le buffet du petit déj est très complet.

Adoramos Lausanne e, em grande parte, isso se deveu à excelente localização do Hotel City. Localizado no centro histórico, a 200 m da catedral e a poucos metros de um comércio vibrante, o City fica também na porta do metrô (cujas passagens são totalmente cobertas pelo hotel durante toda a estadia), que leva o hóspede a todos os pontos de interesse da cidade, incluindo a orla do lago. O hotel é confortável, limpo, e nosso quarto tinha uma vista incrível para a cidade e a catedral. Se um dia voltar a Lausanne, quero ficar no City! O ponto fraco é que o café da manhã, embora seja oferecido, não está incluído na diária e não é barato. Mas isso, na Suíça, é norma geral.

City Hotelはローザンヌ駅から3駅目の真ん前にありました。近くにはCoopもMigrosもあり便利でしたが、夜外が騒がしくぐっすり眠れませんでした。バスルームとは別に水道があり、コーヒーを淹れられたのはよかったです。

"Good location"
05/26/15 Emil S
The hotel's location is perfect at the center of the city near all means of transport. Good room. Very quiet. Wifi is variable sometimes weak sometimes strong. I think the overall is very good. I liked it.
Overall Rating
"Very well located decent hotel"
05/26/15 Ezdiver Lausanne, Switzerland
If you want to visit the Lausanne area and not bother driving, this is the best deal around. Nothing fancy, but impeccably clean, quiet, good service, and right on a public transport hub with several bus lines and metro literally just out the door. Even better is that the hotel provides free public transport to its guests. We almost forgive the lack of an in-house restaurant as there are many in the immediate surroundings. Across the bridge is the Lausanne Cathedral which is well worth visiting.
Overall Rating
"Central but otherwise terrible"
05/04/15 dri126 Jena, Germany
I had to stay in this hotel during a business trip to Lausanne. If you travel by car there is no chance of parking in front of the hotel, not even for quickly depositing your luggage n the hotel. There is a garage ca. 500 meters away from the hotel but you have to carry your luggage up a hill. The hotel itself looks nice at the first glance but once I got into my room I wasn't too happy anymore. There were stains on the sheets and rug. The drain the shower was dirty with spots of mold. The tap was dirty and incrustrated. At nigh the toilett made strange noises. All in all this was a very bad stay and I can only recommend to not use this hotel.
Overall Rating
"Comfortable and affordable"
04/21/15 K M Boston, Massachusetts
I needed a last-minute booking since my airBnB host cancelled right before an important trip to Lausanne. The room was well-maintained and comfortable, and the breakfast in the morning was nice. The staff were polite and courteous. I would stay here again.
Overall Rating
"Good, Central Location, but very basic and sad"
04/13/15 Nate H Frankfurt, Germany
The Hotel is smack in the middle of town, 5 min walk from the old city or the shopping areas, so this is great. The views from the room over the cathedral; also good. But the hotel is stuck in the past and, like many hotels in Lausanne and Vevey, has not been updated since the 60´s or 70´s. Very basic amenities in line with a 3 star hotel, but again stuck in the past. It is relatively cheap for Lausanne, but do keep in mind that everything in Switzerland is expensive - so outside of Swiss, paying this much money for such a room is not hear of. So all in all, well located, with nice views. But if you want comfort, this is not for you.
Overall Rating
"Well located, a bit grim, but can't judge before renovation is complete"
04/09/15 marcopolo1964 paris
The hotel is being renovated floor-by-floor so it's a bit hard to judge fairly. The price is certainly right, being far cheaper than other hotels in Lausanne. It's in the center of town, which, beware, is NOT the lakefront. The hotel is right above a metro station, minutes from the cathedral and pedestrian shopping streets. My room was functional and comfortable but the hotel is a bit on the grimly modern style. I hope they improve the breakfast buffet which was very limited during my stay. But as I said, not totally fair to judge a hotel in the midst of a renovation.
Overall Rating
"Central location and good value for money"
03/30/15 khalidgalant Cape Town Central, South Africa
Great location at the Bessiers metro stop. I was on the top floor overlooking lake and views of the Alps. The room and furnishings were newly remodelled (Ikea style). I enjoyed my stay and the reliable free wifi.
Overall Rating
"Unbeatable location, but very basic otherwise"
04/13/14 TallyfromNYC New York City, New York
This hotel is all about location! At first I was a bit disappointed that with the room quality - very basic (had problems turning on bathroom lights and opening bathroom door due to poor handle), but when I looked out the window and the the lighted up Notre Dame Lausanne Cathedral - my heart skipped a bit. This hotel is all about location, location, location - it is 5 min walk from the Cathedral and old city and right on top of the metro station that takes you to the harbor and all other important landmarks. They give a free metro card and WIFI worked perfectly. This is my first time in Lausanne so I do not know if for the money (on the cheapest side of 3 stars) you can get more, but if you are all about location - you know which tradeoffs you are making. Plus, the room was clean and had everything I needed. PS: I had to ask for a different room because the first one smelled of smoke, but the 2nd one did not. Breakfast was nice (nothing fancy, but good selection and service). Also, this hotel is not for you if you cannot stand the Cathedral bells - you can hear them well here.
Overall Rating
"OK hotel in the city"
03/13/14 Jonathan W
Stayed on business just for the 1 night. Hotel was nice and clean and the staff were quite helpful. Everything you would expect from a city centre hotel. Free wifi was a nice touch as was the travel card to get back to the train station.
Overall Rating
"Not the best 3 star hotel"
02/10/14 bgoknil
The best aspect of this hotel was its location, that was the reason we had chosen it in the first place. (Oh and the shop that we discovered right next to it which sold beautiful handmade one of a kind Italian purses and wallets!) Aside from the location, unfortunately I did not enjoy it much. The breakfast was expensive therefore we opted out of it. One of the legs of the table in our room was broken, thus it was never stable. Didn't have much of a view from our room, the buildings were pretty close by (not that these were much of a problem) and some nights were pretty loud outside. There was something wrong with the internet connectivity; we discovered that two people were not able to log in at the same time! I would say it was doable for a short stay, but I don't know if I would consider staying here again..
