Choosing this hotel really is a matter of taste. This hotel suits those who like classic architecture and an old world feel to their hotel. I am quite the opposite and much prefer the modern feel of the Royal Savoy in Lausanne and my rating reflects that. Nonetheless, having tried it out for a few days here are a couple...

The hotel is locatedcwith in walking distance from the city centre. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. Our bright and very comfortable room looked out towards the lake. The room was very clean. Bathroom only had a shower. The room was very quiet, even though it faced the street.

The place for those who like old architecture and traditional interior design. The advantage of this hotel are rooms with balcony and beautiful view of Lake Geneva. It is also located in the city center with a walking distance from Cathedrale de Lausanne. What may be disappointing is poor selection of food for breakfast as well as the fact that...

I had a room with a single bed which was very comfortable. A good view from the bedroom window. Unfortunately the room only had a shower. The room was very clean and looked as though it had recently been renovated. The room had excellent lighting, unlike very many hotel rooms, as I had to do some work. Internet Wifi worked...

Just back home after a lovely 2 nights in this hotel. A hotel chosen for us, as it was the venue for the wedding reception but I have to say it was beautiful.

Checked in this evening after a long journey and I was shocked with how rude the staff were. I asked for a room with a lake view - as previously recommended on this page and they were so obnoxiously rude about it. I didn't feel great and I was looking forward to a batch but I daren't ask if there...
