Hôtel des Inventions
Reasonable stay
The hotel and the room are awesome. I reached early so the reception person was kind enough to make some changes and enable my early checkin. In addition I had to add two days to my original stay and when I called them they were super prompt in making the adjustments. The only aspect I found inconvenient is their front desk closes at 6 pm and then opens at 8 am. These were the times of my conference so I could never have met them for any issue. I had locked my laptop in the safe and when I called them in the night (late) they answered the phone and were super curt -- we will fix it in the morning! Nothing about how it affected my work, or that I could not have made it at 8 am since I would leave by 7:45 am for my conference. So as long as you have no issues, this is a good place to stay. Far from metro (15 min walk) but good location for staying close to EPFL.

Ensuite or not ensuite?.... not till check-in
Told it was ensuite while booking though only found out shared bathroom at check in. The receptionist said us all room are shared bathroom and we were welcome to cancel if we were not happy. It was late and raining outside. What a great advise! Much appreciated!!!

It was decent, but some basic things missing like toothbrush and other toiletries. Self-checkin was fast, but very unpersonal. Decent price.
