Great reception and hospitality! Hildegard is a very nice lady! Very friendly. Always asking if my stay is going well. Every morning she offered me a cup of coffee or something to eat, despite there being a kettle with tea bags and coffee sticks in the room I stayed in. Her friend Olivier is very nice as well. You can have plenty to talk about with both of them. The apartment is very central. Located next rue central which is close to place Palud, place Riponne, Flon and the Cathedral. It is also near the metro and the train station (7min by foot). Everything is walking distance from there, even Ouchy! The room itself is very spacious. It has a desk, three lamps, two night stands, a big comfortable bed, a fan and a double glazing window, which when you close it cancels all the noise from outside. The apartment has two floors, it is old but very nice. O highly recommend staying here if you are looking to stay in Lausanne for a night or a few nights!

I enjoyed my stay at Hildegard's place a lot. The communication before the stay was easy and it was no problem to find the place. The location is great, very close to Lausanne train station (it's a climb but there are busses too). The place is cosy and clean. I was there for business so I didn't spend much time in my room but I had a chat with Hildegard over a cup of coffee on the last morning, which was very nice. She's a great host and I hope to be able to stay at her place another time in the future

Hildegard was a fantastic host, I was extremely happy with the room (amazing location and building) and enjoyed our conversation over a glass of wine a lot. Let's hope that universal basic income finally happens! I will definitely stay again if I come back to Lausanne - which I probably will since I loved the city.
