I spent two nights at Hildegards place as I had an event production. Hildegard made me feel very welcome in her unique place! The proximity to the metro station, a 5min walk and you can grab a cup of coffee at the bakery on the way, is definitely a plus!

Hildegard is a great host. Her apartment is located in the city centre but in a secret, comparably quiet spot. The house is one of the oldest in the city. I had a short but very pleasant stay at Hildegard’s.

The house is really unusual and filled with interesting things, and Hildegard was very accommodating, even though we arrived slightly early and left slightly earlier than planned. The house is right in the heart of the old town - be aware it's a long climb up from the lake! - which makes everything walkable.

This is my 2nd stay at Hildegard's wonderful old-city flat. Location is wonderful, the flat is a wonderfully ancient multi-level construction in the rooftop level of Lausanne, any anything you want is within walking distance. Be slightly aware that there can be some street-level revelry on the weekends, but the location, history, and Hildegard's hospitality more than make up for it. This is my go-to AirBNB in Lausanne!

It was really nice staying at Hildegard's, location is good, very centered you have everything you need around. The room is cozy, clean so I would recommend. Hildegard is a very nice lady and willing to share her story you will have a good stay here ~
