    « Nice and charming Hotel »

    A very nice Hotel if you stay in Lausanne, it is very close to the train station (~400m) and within walking distance to the lake or the cathedral and the shopping streets. Service is very friendly and helpful, Reception is great and very helpful as well. Internet access is free and fast, I never had a problem with it. The facilities are clean and the Hotel is very charming. Rooms are clean, some are a little bit small, bathrooms are clean and newly renovated it seems. The only thing bothering me is always the curtain around the shower as you are flooding the bathroom. There is no real rim between floor and shower. Breakfast is very good, they offer a great variety, even salmon. You also get free public transport within the city during the lenght of your stay. Anyway I am there at least three times a year and it is the Hotel of my choice, and I've seen a few there..

    « Pricey, inconspicuous accommodation not far away from the main train station »

    Best Western Mierebau is only 400 m away from Main train station, and 900 m away from the heart of Lausanne. Hotel's building is old, well-kept, however not very distinctive. Interior of the lobby, corridors and rooms (seem to me) a bit cheap and dated. Entire hotel very clean. Staff is very attentive and polite. The decor of my room (#212) was not appealing to me at all. I expected something more exquisite and stylish. Bed was large and very comfortable. Even though rooms have no kettle as a standard equipment (what a pity) you may ask at the reception, tea-set will be promptly delivered to your room. Internet access for 2 devices was included in the room rate. Connection was quite fast and uninterruptible. Upon check in I received a ticket for public transportation (valid for entire my stay) which was a nice surprise. Selection at buffet breakfast was not too opulent; however quality of the food was very good and the meal tasted good. Price/Value: in my humble opinion 235EUR for a night, was not a bargain even though I was in Lausanne. I'd more eagerly swallow the price for the night, only if I were given a room with the lake view.

    « Convenient walking distance from the train station »

    When I go to Lausanne on business, I like to stay at the Mirabeau. The logistics are you arrive by airplane in Geneva, you take the train to Lausanne, and then you have a 5 mins walk from the train station to the hotel. The service at reception is very good. The hotel is clean, ample rooms, comfortable king size bed, modern bathrooms. The restaurant on the ground floor is excellent for breakfast and for dinner, with excellent food and service. The negatives were the WiFi does not work well, and the shower is in the bathtub which I dislike.

    « Fine for short business trips »

    Nice hotel for short business trips. There were renovation works on the street of the hotel and no warnings at the hotel website. I would expect better offers for rooms due to the loud mornings. It will continue till the end of 2017.

    « Stylish »

    The original art deco style has been lovingly recreated with all modern conveniences. We had a glimpse of the lake from the balcony. Breakfast was lovely, great coffee, good selection of hot and cold. Room was spacious and very clean and bathroom very nicely done. Staff very helpful. Near station/metro/buses. Free bus/metro pass. Pillows were a little too hard and the yoghurts could have been cooler but I am being picky. Cathedral is lovely.

    « Plus! »

    This BW Plus hotel really lives up to the PLUS in it's name. Compared to another 4 star BW hotel in Switzerland this is really on a different level. Had a wonderful 1 night stay at this hotel and I will certainly book this again for any future visit to Lausanne. My room was towards the street and on the second floor so there were some street noises in the night. So if you have trouble sleeping then I would suggest to ask for a room higher up or faced towards the lake. Splendid breakfast and top service all around.

    « A great hotel to stay »

    My wife and I stayed here with my 2 boys this past summer. It created a lasting memory in us. Very friendly staff and clean hotel. Train station and local attractions were near by. Hotel also gave us complimentary local transit pass, which was awesome and came in very handy. Hotel staff also helped us plan some parts of our daily trip. Our stay also included Breakfast buffet and was very satisfactory. Ans almost forgot to mention that the room we stayed in was huge and that too compared to typical European hotel rooms.

    « Best Western but very +++ »

    Great location to downtown and train station. Stayed 4 nights for a family event. The triple room #209 had great beds and was very clean. Great breakfast buffet a plus. Very quiet. Staff professional and friendly. Would certainly return. And will.

    « Everything was great but no lake view for family room »

    Our family of 4 had a nice "Family Room" with two separate bedrooms. The master was huge, had a fridge, small balcony but looked out onto the busy street. Not too much street noise though. Kid's room was smaller but fine, two singles. Bathroom was large and nice. Parking was pricey and on the street, you can pay at the front desk and they will give you the appropriate tag. Pretty close to the train station and uphill a bit to the old town, cathedral etc. They give you a public transport pass which we did use. Breakfast was typical Swiss fare but very well done, with meats, cheeses, pastry, fruit, etc. All in all it was a good place to stay and reasonable value for Switzerland, though the room had minimal lake views. The service was excellent and the staff were very kind and helpful.

    « Nice 4 stars Hotel »

    I stayed in this hotel during my visit to Lausanne. The hotel is clean, classic, well organized and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and welling to help. The location of the hotel a bit far from the the lake, down town and the services ( restaurants, bars, shops, markets, laundry, cafes,...) but it close to the train station. The breakfast is very poor and the choices are limited.

    « An excellent Hotel, with great view on lake5 »

    Very nice Hotel, all Hotel staff are exceptionaly very welcoming and helpful, specially the reception. We are here with the family and took 3 rooms, all 3 rooms are classic and chic. Breakfast is great and has a wide variety of different choices. Definitely will be returning again.

    « Great Location, Great Breakfast »

    This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station! Big, spacious rooms, excellent WIFI! The continental breakfast is outstanding and the servers are warm and friendly. Located in the Center of Lausanne, it's easy to walk to shopping, restaurants or to Ouchy. Very helpful front desk staff too. We would stay here again!

    « great place to stay in the area »

    Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hotel Mirabeau. Hotel was a quick walk from the train station and located half way between the port and the old city. There is a bus stop directly in front of the hotel if you don't want to walk the hills (and the hotel provided a card that gave free access to the public transportation which is clean and efficient). The staff was extremely warm and helpful. They upgraded us to a room with a balcony and view of the Lake when we checked in. Hotel was very clean and had a lot of charm. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    « wonderfull hotel »

    We already stayed twice in the hotel "Le Maribeau " in Lausanne. It is a beautiful and stylish decorated hotel, the service is very friendly and attentive. Our room had a view of beautiful Lake Geneva, the room was immaculately clean, with a wide range in the mini-bar, shower and bath (there was no noise from traffic or other guests). The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of the lake and all other sights . There was a very rich breakfast and dinner was very refined.We would definitely recommend this hotel,you can clearly see that this hotel is well run!

    « VERY CLEAN »

    I stayed here for one night and it was wonderful.Staff is very polite, good size of rooms, clean and comfortable. Although we had a room on the street side, there was absolutely no noise. Good choice for breakfast too.

    « Hotel Mirabeau stay for conference in Lausanne. »

    Stayed here for three days while attending a conference at CHUV. All in all a great stay. Wonderfull beds. Exceptionally good food (incl breakfast) at the restaurant and conveniently located very near the main train station.

    « Excellent hotel! »

    Stayed at Mirabeau Hotel for 4 nights!Its location is precisely what we wanted! Almost near everything! The staff were very kind and helpful! It's cleanliness is 10 out of 10! Breakfast was good and the restaurant had delicious plates! I enjoyed the chicken curry dish and the profiteroles!I loved the Swiss fruity white wine the serve there!Our stay was a must to remember !

    « A lovely alternative to Geneva »

    Stayed at the Hotel Mirabeau for a few days as an alternative to paying the hugely inflated Geneva prices during UN meetings. I am very glad I did! The hotel is in an excellent location, a short walk from the train station, lake at city centre with, if you happen to get a lake facing room, stunning views across the lake. The rooms are tidy and clean with everything you need, right where you need it. A very wide selection of television channels are also available in room. The breakfast spread was also very well done and offered good variety. As for the staff - they were fantastic throughout with special mention going to Bibi and Maddie on the reception desk; wonderfully attentive and happy to assist. My trip was for business, but I shall be back to Lausanne as a tourist in the very near future.

    « Business Overnight in Lausanne »

    Very disappointing hotel room in relation to elevated room-rate charged 00 in terms of outlook (sold as mountain view, but in reality only just) and bathroom fittings (uncomfortable shower in high-sided bath) - I have had much better bathrooms in Holiday Inn Express !!

    « Very good Hotel »

    The location is good, near the train station and 10min walks from the center. Very helpfull staff a the reception the private garage is located in front of the hotel and very easy to use. Room was very nice and clean, spacious, great view from the balcony Beds are very comfy. Dinner at restaurant in the evening was just Perfect !!!! Great staff, great Food & cosy Atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent. All what you need to start your day. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

    « Central location »

    Very good service-with a smile.Rooms are very small,so are the bathrooms!Close to the train station.Lausanne is a uphill downhill city!I didn't know that.There are trips on the Lake Geneva by boat.Wonderful scenery.

    « Sweet »

    All ok on the basics - fair price, cleanliness, TV, WLAN, decent breakfast, convenient location close to the train station but far enough to avoid the typical side effects. More importantly, a courteous and friendly staff. Elegant rooms and staircase which ensure a relaxing and classy atmosphere.

    « Way too expensive, tired decor »

    I'm a frequent traveler, and I found this hotel to be obscenely priced for a place that looked so tired. Adding a second person to the room, which had a large bed regardless of how many people were in the room, cost more than $50.

    « Really nice pleasant hotel »

    Just a five minute walk from the railway station, this art nouveau hotel is really nice, good rooms and nice breakfast, would recommend worth a try. Seems well placed in the town. Rooms were good size I had 411 which was quiet and on the corner of the hotel.

    « Good stay »

    Very descent stay at a very convenient location, just 5 minutes walk from train station, metro. wide selection of restaurants at the nearby area at walking distance. Wifi has good reception and breakfast offered is a good buffet selection. Rooms are relatively spacious and very clean. Personnel is very helpful and polite and generally speaking service level is at high standards.

    « delicious curry mussels »

    We were having a family dinner at the hotel for their "moules menu" last Saturday on our visit to Lausanne. The restaurant was fully booked, their curry mussel was delicious! It's definitely A MUST to taste! Having well and warm received by their staffs all along our time at the restaurant, could only make us want to come back, yet to stays at the hotel.

    « Decent hotel »

    This hotel is conveniently located close to the Lausanne Train Station. The service is excellent at reception as well as the restaurant. The room was also clean but not very spacious. The internet connection is not the greatest as it kept dropping regularly. Overall, a decent, clean hotel but no great frills.

    « Décéption? »

    Of course, everything is relative and I do not know if the three stars is very representative, but it's rather in relation to the range "high end" which this hotel sits in. I was there on business trip in Lausanne (it's pretty rare that I sleep there) but was unfortunately not delighted pleased, service is good, of course, but I was "relegated" to chamber 506 which is rather small and there was no WiFi (or really bad signal, this may have been corrected by now). Breakfast was included, good but not great compared to other hotels in this range.

    « Ideal place to stay in Lausanne »

    Great location , polite staff, spacious rooms , garage facility available , rich and top quality breakfast and an interesting restaurant, within the hotel , staying open till almost 22.00 , made our life , upon our arrival , much easier. Overall is a value for money hotel.

    « good choice »

    Warmly welcome, comfortable rooms but a little bit smal. Pleasant balkony .Cosy and swiss atmosphere .The restaurant is excellentwith a large choice of foods and wines . The breakfast is perfect choice, service and quality. Nice stage for holidays or for business.

    « Second time in this hotel and will stay more »

    Booked this hotel for the 2d time and satisfied again. The hotel is walking distance from the railway station, offers comfortable accommodation. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Though located on a busy street, the rooms are quiet, thanks to modern windows. Rate 4 only for the size of the room, but this is very clearly noted in the booking information. The hotel provides a good breakfast, with swiss cheese, meat/sausage cuts salted salmon, fresh croissants, juices, omlette/eggs, cereals/yoghurts, which was included in the rate. As in many Swiss cities you pay some 2-3 CHF as a city tax, which is not just a tax - you get a transport card for free bus/metro rides within the city. WiFi is free throughout the hotel, but you will need to register entering the login/password combinations which you receive at the reception at check-in. Very, very good restaurant for dinner with helpful, knowledgeable staff and chef. All the food was not only prepared well, but also well served and decorated. Will stay in this hotel again.

    « Every staff member made our stay better »

    We arrived at 7:30 on a cold Sunday night in January. No reservation? No problem! I think we received the best room in the hotel! We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, and received a table in front of the wood burning fire! Too tired to think about what to order, so asked the sommelier for suggestion. Surprise - she suggested a modestly priced wine that worked perfectly with my dinner! On checkout the next morning, the hotel manager gently reminded us which mountain roads were closed, and recommended a detour to the town of Gruyere - magical! Thank you for a memorable stay.

    « Excellent Location Excellent Restaurant »

    Great location, very close to the station and everything else seemed to be a comfortable walk away. The staff was very friendly and approachable and the restaurant served very good food. The hotel is very charming as it has something very old world about it.

    « Very, very nice hotel in the heart of Lausanne. »

    We stayed in this hotel as part of a group tour, so I cannot say if it was a good value, but it certainly was an excellent place to stay. Cleanliness is our first requirement as well as being quiet and this hotel met that criteria. The breakfast was excellent and the general appearance and decor were very, very nice. All of the staff were friendly and helpful.

    « Excellent location and service Best value for money »

    We have visited this hotel twice before and we return here because of the good location and excellent service we are provided. Yet again the staff were helpful, courteous and kind. The breakfast was scrumptious. Best value for money. We always look forward to our stay at the your hotel and wish the General Manager and his team every success.

    « Helpful staff, pleasant stay »

    We arrived after a 8 hour drive, parking was right opposite the hotel and very secure which was helpful for us as we were leaving things in the car as we were driving around Europe. Nice spacious room, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. The lady on reception was very helpful too. Good location with bus stops close by. Only negative was food choice for breakfast.

    « Comfortable but oldish »

    The hotel and rooms are comfortable, though details are somewhat old and would need upgrade, like the bathroom equipment. They serve a very good and complete breakfast. At walking distance from the train station and the old town.

    « Surprisingly Good! »

    We had a junior suite and the room was superb. Very large with separate room for the kids and a massive bathroom, and spotlessly clean. The staff were very helpful and the location, whilst perhaps not in the best area, is very handy for the main attractions. Bus passes are included and the service is very good, with buses to the harbour or centre every couple of minutes. Breakfast was great and pretty much covered everything you could want. The only issue with the hotel is that the parking is limited. We ended up having to park on the street but it was fine in the end. Certainly a hotel I would recommend if you were visiting Lausanne.

    « Great hotel with some old world charm »

    This is a great location, not far from the train station, just a bit of a walk up the hill. Close to buses. Big spacious rooms. Nice and quiet, well appointed. Great friendly staff who are helpful and accommodation. Breakfasts - good selection.

    « Lovely, lovely, lovely »

    I wish I could only stay there longer! From the breakfast throughout the day until the night this is just lovely place: lovely choice in the morning (best scrambled eggs ever!), lovely view out of the window during the day (over Lake Geneva to France) and great sleep at night (perfect bed in a silent house). Te only little and a bit weird disadvantage is their locked computer room on the 3rd floor - every time you go for the public computer you have to ask for a key at the reception. But its just a detail:-)
