I had stayed here as second time. I had chosen this hotel because it is opposite the central station and beside Metro station and comfortable room. If we have chance to go back there, I will choose this hotel certainly.

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.

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...

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.
