"hotel city :Lausanne"
mes déplacements sur Lausanne sont programmés désormais via hôtel city : accueillant,propre,au centre villeGenuine Expedia guest review
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。 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"emplacement à coté de notre famille!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trop de bruit côté rues."
Chambres trop bruyantes du côté des rues et vraiment trop chaudes;on ne peut ouvrir les fenêtres à cause du bruit. Sinon, tout est très bien.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bom, limpo e muito bem localizado"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.
"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.
"Central location and good value for money"

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.
"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.
"OK hotel in the city"

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.
"Not the best 3 star hotel"
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..
"Poor excuse for a hotel"
12/29/13 Shermo23 Jakarta, Indonesia
To anyone who is thinking of staying at Hotel City: just don't do it. I was underwhelmed, disappointed and at some points horrified by the quality of my stay. For one, the breakfast was overpriced and lacking in variety. The so-called "hot buffet" was composed of three tiny trays of tasteless sausage, flavorless scrambled eggs, and tough-to-chew bacon that was more a soup of grease than anything. Aside from this, they only offer a small selection of bread, jams, and the like. The selection did not change the entire time I was there, which was nearly two weeks. Not to mention the rude female staff member who appeared to be shouting aggressively at the clients. At one point she also, for some reason, doubled as a housekeeper. One Sunday morning, while I was trying to sleep in, she banged on the door shouting for several minutes. When I did not open the door, she would continue knocking on it loudly. At one point I even heard her scoffing. She was so loud that morning that the people in the next room opened their door to see what the commotion was about. If that wasn't enough, after making such a racket, she called the room phone demanding if we wanted cleaning. I feel like all of this was unnecessary -- in all of the other hotels that I have stayed at, housekeeping will simply move on if the guests are still in the room trying to sleep. The rooms themselves were disgusting. Mine had a distinct stale food smell, and in the wardrobe I found old nut shells that the last guest had clearly left behind. There were also cigarette butts on the balcony that had not been cleaned up either. In addition, the sheets were never changed while I was there. As for comfort, the room was severely lacking. I did not realize that soft pillows could ever be a problem until I stayed at Hotel City. The pillows -- if they could be called as such -- offered no support to my head and were nearly impossible to sleep with. The blanket would constantly come out of its sheet, exposing strange dark stains. Since staying at the hotel, nearly each one of my family members has experienced skin problems. One of the children staying with me developed rashes; my sister and I both felt itchy after sleeping in the beds. The bathroom was not up to standard either. The faucet in the bathtub emitted an annoying, high-pitched shriek every time it was turned on. The bathtub was leaky, so the carpet directly outside the bathroom would get soaked every time I took a bath. There are so many other things I could complain about. But judging by the responses that the Hotel City management has posted on this page, they will find some way to turn the blame on the guests -- such as their suggestion towards one commenter that he/she should have paid an extra 20 CHF for a "superior" room. Or, towards another commenter, that it was some other guest's fault that his/her room smelled like cigarettes. (While it was most likely indeed a previous guest that smoked in the room, it is still the HOTEL'S responsibility to take care of the problem rather than assigning blame.) So I will stop here, and you should too if you are considering booking a room here for any length of stay.

"Just one of those poor Swiss hotels"
10/18/13 agg82 Geneva, Switzerland
Swiss Hotels are known worldwide for their high quality standards... unless they are "cheap" hotels. If you want a good hotel in Switzerland, you will find a lot of them, but do expect to pay a small fortune for them. On the other side, you can opt for a "budget" hotel (by Swiss standards, of course)... in that case, expect to pay a considerable amount for a poor service. A good example of this is the Hotel City. The only good thing about it is its excellent location, right in front of the Bessières metro station, and very close to the old town and bars and restaurants. Otherwise you will find an extremely basic and old fashioned hotel with really noisy rooms which will make difficult your sleep. And that's about it...
"Okay you are in Switzerland...this hotel is not the Four Seasons..but here are some positives..."
09/12/13 Kristinadele Marriottsville, Maryland
Location - I love the fact that this hotel is so conveniently located. I mean literally, you walk out of the hotel to the train station that will take you anywhere. Not to mention that it is across the street from a supermarket (in case you decide to forgo an an expensive swiss meal, buy cheese & wine, sit on the balcony in your hotel room, & look at the lights of the beautiful city of Lausanne. And on Saturdays there is a Farmers' Market immediately across from the hotel where you will find an array of cheeses, meats, fresh produce, and yes....a garage sale. Now the garage sale I loved because I found some fasionable European clothes & shoes at a reasonable non-swiss price. The people - Everyone we encountered was so kind, accommodating..... The lodgings - Staff....couldn't say enough nice things. Breakfast average...in fact I would skip and wonder around town, find a cafe'. Rooms...average 1980's plastic like furniture, pink carpet, but clean..... I would rather spend the money I saved on the hotel on other things anyway I will post some pictures & hopefully this will give a better idea of the area.
