    Much larger room than we expected. Great view of Lake Geneva. All staff did a superior job. Management should be proud.

    A little bit old.

    Location is just in front of train station. Hotel furnishing is really good given the price paid. Best there is a good Chinese restaurant serving good dishes just downstairs.

    Very close to train station / Metro and restaurants.

    Aircon was not functioning well and it was quite hot in the rooms. It was same case in another 2-3 rooms where my colleagues were staying asw well. When we explain to reception/staff, either they didnt understand or knew about it but couldnt do anything.

    Location! Right across from the station!! And we always come to Lausanne by train. Also, a lovely room with view of the lake, very nice bathroom and good soft pillows on the bed. The breakfast room is so cheerful and the staff very helpful. Food was delicious. The front desk staff was helpful too. We stayed here because of the price, which was lower than where we had stayed in Lausanne before, but now we will always stay at the Continental.

    The rooms are very clean, staff are friendly and helpful. Its location is very good because it's just next to the train station and bus stops. The breakfast is quite good.

    We loved our stay at Continental Hotel Lausanne. The proximity to all forms of transport plus the free ticket given by the Hotel was so convenient. The view of the mountains from our room was just lovely. It was peaceful and yet it was in the hub! The breakfast was excellent with so many choices. The Staff were friendly and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable and as we were visiting family we will stay at this Hotel again.

    Perhaps tea/coffee facilities in the room!

    room was welcoming, very clean lines and right across from station, hotel will give you a transport card which is great to visit the lakeside ouchy section...the reception and outside are standard, don't give indication of nice room/bathroom, reception gave me a converter which was fantastic as my converter didn't work in the swiss outlets

    expensive, breakfast included but nothing hot included in the spread and no internet access

    Location was great for us, being opposite the rail station and having heavy suitcases was ideal for us. The hotel is clean and friendly and the breakfast is good.

    Very nice hotel rooms (recently completely re-done). However, the entrance and the room for the breakfast are very old and not very welcoming... I was really "scared" when I first entered the hotel but, to my surprise, my room was really nice.
