4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

The hotel staffs were friendly & able to advise us how to take the train services to travel around Lausanne & other places. We drove our car there & needed a carpark space. Their staffs were helpful to park our car in their designated car park lots near to their hotel. They even lent us their hotel umbrella when it was raining during our second day stay to go for sightseeing. As we were also leaving to Paris, France by train after a 3 days' stay here, the main train station was just directly opposite the hotel with less than 2 minutes' walk. It was so convenient. We could even leave some of our other luggages in the hotel so that we did not need to bring all to Paris for a few days' stay before coming back to Lausanne & drove to Milan, Italy. The bathroom was a bit small though & finishings of the hotel room might not be perfect but definitely a hotel can consider to come back to stay again. The breakfast was decent & average but still worth the value as the hotel room rates come with breakfast.

about Room 219 (Lausanne Continental), which I had for the 2nd time:
the AC is still not working, first time it was not that bad, because of wintertime, but last time in March it was a little annoying, as the fan of the AC was not running.
Room is small, shower is great, breakfast could be better, but service is very nice.
Noise from train station & street avoid good sleep.

Hitel is located across train station. So this a big point, infront of the hotel bus stations are located so you can jump in, and go to the citi center. On the side of trian station you can find two good grocery shops.
The hotel was excellent.Very nice bathroom, with big shower, clean. Big bed. Even if view on street, the noise was not disturbing at all. On the arrival day, fruits and complimentary water were left in the room.
Breakfast was good, but allways the same, no vegetables. But a big big poitn for the hotel is, they have on each floor Nespresso machines, capsules are available in minibar. While breakfust, also Nespresso machine is there to your convenience While staying on the hotel almost for a week, I already felt like home, with my perfect tasting coffee :)

Despite 'upgrading' to their Queen room, the room size was awful - getting past the bed into the far end of the room was a squeeze. Also the TV was fixed on the wall at 2m high - so impossible to watch comfortably from the bed.

Cleanliness OK but breakfast poor. No need to select grotty hotels like this - must be better available - so avoid.
