We had booked two standard rooms for the family and were assigned two spacious rooms on the 5th floor (top floor I think)... one overlooking the train station, other overlooking the back streets. Rooms were much more spacious than other reviews might suggest so I assume they have a mix of room sizes and we lucked out. Door between bath/shower...

My parents had an awesome experience in this very central hotel right next to Lausanne gare. Prices are rather affordable (especially for Switzerland), and clerks were extremely helpful. I strongly encourage tourist to try this hotel.

I stayed with my family two nights in this beautiful hotel. Not only the central location of this typical swiss hotel makes it best choice for the family travelers but also the professional service makes you really feel like at home. Quick professional check in, friendly staff, clean rooms, big buffet breakfast. The hotel has a modern fitness center, which...

On two days (over a weekend) we did NOT have teas,coffees,cups,shower gel replaced and had to go ask for these at reception. We too would have liked an extra pillow..but we were given the choice of feather or synthetic when we asked at reception. Breakfasts gave a good selection (for us).

This hotel has a very convenient location opposite the main station in Lausanne, although this location also meant that in the evening there was a lot of noise from the street. My room was clean and functional although I found the bed very hard and uncomfortable. The staff member I talked to was very friendly and helpful.

Welcomed to hotel in English. Offered but declined room upgrade for 20CHF a day more, (the Economy single room is ensuite and at 15 square metres meets my requirements). Aircon works well but is very noisy, (wondering what the running water noise was to start with) - suggest that you use it before bedtime if necessary. Right opposite main rail...

Two minutes away from Lausanne train station, friendly staff with good level of English, decent breakfast, comfortable bed (though short of one pillow), but a bit overpriced for what it is actually worth.

The Continental Hotel is a plain hotel and not the fanciest. It is comfortable and price sensible which is what I need when on business travel. You may miss the lake view but you gain on convenience as it sits just across the train station.

Stayed here on three separate times during a two week stay in Europe. The staff was the best of anywhere we have stayed.

The hotel location is just perfect, in front of the Gare de Lausanne, you can go walking around the city, but if you don't want to walk the hotel gives you a mobile card, so you don't pay the public transports. You can go to a great gym with modern equipaments just beside the hotel. I definetely go stay again...
