The location of this hotel is just in front of Lausanne railway station. The metro station is in next building for which free pass is available at reception. The breakfast is good but it would be better if hotel management could offer hot omelette as well. The hospitality of staff is very good. They are always ready to help you....

Room size is great for a family of three. Location is great for travelers on train. Sound proof is good and we had a good night sleep. Breakfast was great. Beverage selection is great -- nespresso e.t.c.

I arrived by train late afternoon on a dismal day. When I left the station and looked across the road to see the hotel my heart sank and it ran through my mind that I would look for another place to stay. As others have said, the exterior of the hotel is very off-putting: the canvas awning looks dirty and...

The place is located just across the road from Lausanne Railway Station, so it can be your perfect shelter if you are a business traveller desperately looking for a bed after a long day of meetings or a long-haul flight. Metro station is just the next building, and the receptionist will provide you with a free card for all means...

Don't be put off by the awful architecture or the dated reception area, the room was lovely. Spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated, with the most delicious crisp linen and soft pillows. The decor in the room was also pleasant and although the shower-room was small, it was so cleverly designed that you could almost forget its size. My room was...

I have just come back from a work trip to Lausanne. The location of the hotel is excellent, directly opposite the railway station, unfortunately the outside does look quite rough!! We were greeted by a very happy, polite and helpful receptionist. Evertime we saw him after he always made a fuss. The rooms were a little hot as i couldnt...

While my room was smallish, I thought is was a good value for the money - many amenities. The hotel is directly across from Lausanne Gare, so getting on the metro is a breeze. The front desk staff members were courteous and extraordinarily helpful regarding questions I had about navigating the city as well as recommending places to dine and...

Face it, Lausanne is a mega-expensive city for hotels -- even at weekends and also even by Swiss standards. So the Continental is reasonable value, which is a polite way of saying it's still pretty expensive; it's directly opposite the station and part of a small Swiss Chain called Mainz Privacy Hotels. The single room I had was pretty small,...

The location of the hotel was convenient for us because we travelled by train. Also convenient is the metrostation next to the hotel for trips to Ouchy or the centre of town. You get a ticket for unlimited use of all te public transport in and around town (allthough you pay (a part?) of it yourself (tourist tax). The rooms...

The people were very friendly and it was a nice experience....The location was good because it is closed to train station and to metro one so it helpe to move easily to everywhere. Rooms are nice and clean.
