All staff at the reception were welcoming , efficient and helpful. Breakfast was great. Room was clean and nice. Location of hotel is just by the station . The metro is a stone's throw from the hotel too. If I go back to lausanne again, hotel continental will be my choice. Thank you for the wonderful service!

We arrived tired after long train trip. We had booked cheapest room, as only there one night, and delightful man at desk put us in a beautiful suite overlooking lake. He was charming all the time we were there. Breakfast was excellent, and we wished we were staying longer. The bed was best we've ever struck in a hotel. Comfort...

I have visited the hotel for only three nights. I have stayed there during my business trip in the room with double bed, internet and breakfast. From entrance I had a bad impression. At first, entrance look a bit filthy, secondly, there was a bad smell at the desk. During check in I probably got used to it while being...

Stayed on a business trip with some colleagues and enjoyed the hotel very much. I was lucky to be at the rear of the hotel which did not suffer from noise and my room was bigger than my colleagues for some reason. The double sized walk in shower was particularly good. Breakfast quality and variety was excellent but an evening...

Excellent location within 5 minutes walk of main railway station for a convenient stopping point in a long distance high speed rail journey (say, London to Rome) and also next door to metro station for ease of travel down to the lake or up to the old town (it is a very steep gradient for walking) Rooms are modernist,and somewhat...

The title of this review will sum up everything for you in case you do not want to continue reading :) This hotel is located bang across the train station. You literally walk out of the train station, cross the road and walk in to the hotel. It is THAT conveniently located. First time travelers to Lausanne will find this...

We stayed 2 nights, loved the location and overall hotel. The staff was kind and friendly after we said in french "Bon Jour" (then asking "Parlez vous d'Anglais?) Perfectly situated between train and metro. Big Hint-read about the square footage of the different rooms and pay a little more for a few more feet. You'd be amazed at the difference,...

You couldn't ask for a better location in Lausanne than this one if you are traveling by train. You walk out of the train station, cross the street and walk into the hotel. The metro is right next door so getting around the city is extremely easy. We stayed there for 4 nights in May 2013 -- we asked for...

Stayed there with friends. The hotel is on the same plaza as the train station - very convenient. The metro is the next door, but it's also in a walking distance from all the main attractions.

located just in front of the railway station. the hotel is clean and nice. the basic room is really small. the restaurant is a bit expensive.the hotel could have an "excellent" with a better price. free nespresso at the floor. the rooms facing the station and the road are a bit noisy.
