Well located hotel, reasonably priced

Customer review rating 4.0/5

The hotel room was clean and functional with everything we needed for our short stay.

Well located, but more a bar then a restaurant

Tiny rooms that need refurbishment. I didn't like the modern concept. I felt like in a questionable hotel in the red light district. Staff was at least friendly.

Good stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Much as expected - small but functional room with nice little gift touches. Difficult walk from station up very steep hill. Much easier to go 1 stop on Metro. Friendly staff and nice to get a free drink on arrival and a travel card for duration of stay.

Excellent staff

Hotel was clean & in a great location. Made all the better by the excellent staff. They were very welcoming, attentive and patient with our poor French language skills. Thanks!

Good stay

Really good experience!!! I had fun with everyone who works there. They're so kind, funny and with an open mind. I loved the rooms too. They're so weird in a positive way.

Music playing until early hours of morning which disturbed my sleep. Then a few hours of quiet before it sounded like cleaning or moving of furniture was being done from 4am in the morning

This was my most horrible hotel experience ever and I should have known: they call it the MAD HOUSE and indeed: everyone that even thinks of booking a room here is MAD! This room was so incredibly small, even to IBIS-standards and it was in a very poor condition: shower with NO water pressure and wait forever before the water becomes warm. Under the bed there were a lot of electric? cables, coming from a hole in the ground. There was a sink, so small, hard to even wash your hands in because the watertap blocks it. No ventilation is possible, with fresh air; there’s only -a giant fan at the ceiling. One day, I arrived and the cleaning people had just left my door visibly open. Another day, one of the managers just entered my room, without knocking(!!) “to see if the cleaning staff had done their job”. I was out of toiletpaper and put the empty roll visibly on the (by the way SQUARE) toilet seat and they didn’t notice, so did not have a look in the toilet. Also, the neighborhood is horrible: next to a metro station: drunk people around, noisy people in the hotel. So: never again!

Good location, bad services!

The majority of the staff did not speak English, so we had a major problem to communicate with them. The room was very small , max for 2 persons .. if one of us was tall, we wouldn't fit! Also the toilet was in separate place than the shower.. not much convenient..like a hostel!

well located

Hotel with a funky twist, fun & welcoming staff at the counter / bar. Good value for money and well located in the centre of Lausanne.

Basic but ok

Nicola T. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Cool hotel with cool interior for the fair price of 100CHF a night in an amazing location. Rooms are small but for me alone it was just fine. A lot of nice goodies such as water bottles, orange juice, a little snack, free drink voucher + a backpack for free. Additionally, it was very nice to have 2 sets of towels even though I was traveling alone. The cleanliness was ok to me. The washbasin is as big as a regular piece of paper and absolute inconveinently located so that it was impossible to wash my face there. The main problem was the extreme noise from the streets it took me hours to fall asleep and I woke up every few hours. So the main purpose of sleeping at the hotel was not really fulfilled...

Well located

Ca Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly staff. Very much appreciated the juice, coffee, water and panettone in the room. But room quite noisy because of the noise outside. Double windows could reduce notably the inconvenience. Room a bit cold and no extra blanket in the room.

The lowest price in the region for the best location with lots of benefits.

Junn Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

CHF 60 for the room in lake leman region was the cheapest rate of the day, and hotel located literally right above metro station with many bars, F&B outlets, and supermarkets around. Lausanne public transport card is quite beneficial and welcome drink at the bar, as well as free entry to Club MAD if weekends, so fare is quite reasonable. However room is a bit too small if 2 persons, and room is not well cleaned. quite dusty carpet floor, some trash from previous guests left in room, cables of TV and fan are very dusty, so I believe if previous guest is contracted with COVID-19, I am sure I can get infected by the unproperly cleaned room... because if cleaning standard is so low, I am sure frequently touched parts or areas also not properly cleaned... Cleanliness was biggest negative concern during the stay yet I liked the property for locaiton, lots of benefits, and cheapest price for the region!

Great place

marc0paccagnella Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

I saw an offer for a cheap room and I decided to take it. Nevertheless the room I was given (may be name was Rabbit) was really too small: 5 steps per 2,5 steps. I such small environment there was everything, included shower and toilette. This can be accepted or not. It depends on you. Nevertheless what was difficult for me to accept, was a too high temperature inside the room, the lack of possibility to reduce it and the window was blocked. I have really appreciated all the small gift that came along with the room, as for example a free drink at the bar, free drinks in the room and free entrance at Mad discoteque.

Hello Marco, Many thanks for your comment. The room that you have booked is a new concept in Lausanne : the smallest room for the cheapest price of Lausanne. For the next time, we recommanded you to book an other room more big. We hope that you have enjoyed your stay at MadHouse and hope to see you soon for a new experience MadHouse. Best regards.

autoiklouis Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

the room was very good, except for the position of the Bath room and the toilet it was perfect.I will not want to change anything at all. the area was good, the outside environment was also good. sorry I do not know what else to write. 200 words is too much you should stop this type of questioning

Hello, Thank you for your comment. We hope you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon. MadHouse Team.

Good location for leisure, avoid for business

Bruno D Business - TripAdvisor review

Nicely located and decorated, this hotel is in the center of Lausanne city, restaurant and walking distance from main activities. For business trip, to be clearly avoided: too noisy, loud music, long waiting time before registration, room much to small including the master one, no or limited windows looking onto other wall. No real bathroom and shower giving nearly directly into the bedroom, so take you swimsuit ... Breakfast fair, not much proposed (very smal coffees) and could be better to taken somewhere else if you have time.

Hello Buno, Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you soon. MadHouse Team

Disappointed this Mad House is more à bar with rooms than an hotel with à bar...the bar waiter le at thé reception.....qu'en no one touche serve....the rooms Arte small and non convenient nothing to hang a jacket, nothing to put the clothes....Rooms for hipsters....non real people.

Hello Pierre, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our hotel didn't give you complete satisfaction. We still hope to see you soon for a new experience MadHouse. MadHouse Team.
