Best Lausanne downtown Wasp Nest

Apartment - Private room · Chemin du Mont-Tendre, Lausanne, Vaud 1007, Switzerland

The Space

I/we provide a place where to sleep, actually such nice and big room, with relaxing wide view on the lake and on the mountains.
If you are more than one, no matters, we can host up to 5 persons

We have one bathroom that it's supposed to be shared with me and my flatmate.

The kitchen is fully equipped (I cook as much as possible, all kind of)

I live in a quite flat plunged into the downtown, just 5 minutes walking (as well as by bus) by the main train station and the heart of the city centre.

We are three in the flat: me, a guy, Tim, that is a really easygoing person, and a challenging barbecue that fortunately lives on the terrace, so it isn't too cumbersome or intrusive :-)

I really love to enjoy all cultures and appreciate the time we spent with so many smart and engaging hosts.

You'll always find something to drink and to eat (depending on the moment: tea, milk, coffee and cakes, biscuits, bread with jam, butter)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Alberto is one bon vivant. He exemplifies the true AirBnB spirit. I was supported all the way through my stay and the location was ideal. I particulary appreciated his interest in my journey and the night out on the town with his beautiful girlfriend!

  • Alberto was very accommodating, he was quick to reply and was able to help us out on very short notice. He gave us several recommendations on things to do and we had a great time at his flat. Thanks for everything and look me up if you need a place to stay near the beach in Southern California! (website hidden)

    June 2013
  • I had a good time in Alberto's apt. It's close to the railway station and the city centre. The room is big and confortable and the room mates are friendly. I can recommend the house to anyone who comes to Lausanne

    January 2013
  • The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    December 2012
  • Alberto and his flat mates are very friendly and cooperative hosts. The appartment is close to downtown Lausanne and the train station. I can recomment this location and will come back for my next stay in Lausanne.

    November 2012
  • Alberto's house is a cozy and quiet place in the heart of Lausanne. There I felt comfortable and really enjoyed it. The hosts were very helpful and kind. I can recommend it to anyone who comes to Lausanne. Alberto is a really nice person who's always ready to help you giving advice. I would like to thank to all the hosts who live there for their kindness and all the help they gave me as well as for the great time I spent there.

    October 2012
  • We stayed at Alberto's place for 2 nights and had a great time! We couldn't meet Alberto in person but his friend Adrien was very helpful. We had a prompt check-in and Adrien gave us several useful tips regarding groceries, food etc nearby. There were already 4 people staying at his place which was something that we didn't know beforehand but everyone was great.

    Response from Alberto Maria:

    I can vouch for them, among the best host we had at all.
    As my flatmates told me, it was a real pleasure to host Vinay and his partner. This nice duo :) stayed for a couple of days and they gave us the pleasure of hosting such nice and polite people.
    I'm sorry about their shared room because I didn't know a previous host decided to stay more because he didn't find another apt. (find a place in Lausanne is quite impossible at date) and my flatmates decided to help when we can, but I hope the next time we'll have more free space :)

  • I didn't meet Alberto or his flatmates. It was just one night. The location of the house is perfect. Good view from the balcony.
    The house has most of the things one may ask for on a holiday. But I must say, its a guys house and kept like that.!!

    Response from Alberto Maria:

    As my flatmates told me, it was a real pleasure to host Mohit. A nice, clean, polite and easygoing guy, what do you need more? Thank you for staying and good luck for your next trips :-)

  • I had a very good stay at this apartment. The guys that live at this place work during the day, so I had the whole apartment to myself during work hours. The room and the bathroom were clean, which was very nice. The location is perfect, right next to the main railway station and about 15 minute walk to the center of the town.

    September 2012
  • Wonderful comfortable room with a balcony and a beautiful view of the City of Lausanne and the lake. Pleasant memories! Thank you, Alberto and Tim!

Well, I don't know how to start talking about me... but I'll try! I'm Alberto, an italian 25 guy; I live in Lausanne after a whole life spent in Rome with my family, mama dad one brother and one lovely, fantastic and charming dog, called Daisy (she is just a pet). I've studied to be a Medical Doctor till a few time ago! It has been a very hard road but stimulant and full of satisfaction. My professional fields of interests orbit around neurosciences, from human genetic and molecular biology to the cognitive and behavioural sciences. Apart from it, I really love to make every istant something unique and special; travl is the way to create it, to photograph is the way to keep it; inside, outside of you. So, I've been trying to surround myself and make my life full of emotions and new interesting and positive experiences. During my everyday life, I wait a little bit of spare time to take my motorbike and drive it all along the country hills surrounding my city; otherwise, if it is too late and I've to stay at home, why don't I try to cook some really nice and experimental meal? Yes I do, is an interesting and pleasant pursuit; not only italian food, i catch every possible chance to learn something about new international cooking. What else? Mmh.. I think it's time to come here and discover it by yourself, if you think to be interested in. I'm back from Malaga where i studied thanks to Erasmus program, and back from New York City where I did an internship following a lab in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. While i'm studying, i'm a hard reader: i like to delight my mind first of all with novels, especially modern licterature, writed all over the world. for example, now it's time for Beat the reaper, Josh Bazell... wonderful! i like to play sports, in my life i've tried so many things... but the must for me is kayaking over hard and fast rivers and falls; then running, waterpolo, diving, soccer, surfing, tennis-table (ooh, i love it!), swimming, volleyball, golf, i can continue till tonight ;) Then, my second life: i love above all the Theatre, going to see comedies or tragedies, the important is Going; naturally i love as well playing on the dais, also if I did nothing for fwo years. i'd greatly to resume it. regretfully, i'm addicted to my pc, i spend a lot of time watching film on it (i'm very enthusiastic of cinema), studying on it, trying to improve my knowledge of languages and many other things; for that reason i think that Internet it's one of the most powerful and important things that is ever born... but it needs a good and judicious use. So, what about my studies... Neuroscience means life. Neuronal networks don't mean only biology and genetic studies, but also talking, thinking, sharing... Anthropology, philosophy, cultures, history, all is based on our thoughts and experience. That's what I work with and the passion I want to share with my guests. Then I can teach you how to shoot a nice pic or how to plan a very funny cooking session! I'm always trying to be an open-minded person; that means that I want to learn what people desire to teach me; I found the best people at all so far, and they teached me atoms of life day by day. Thank you all folks :) Talking about who or what a person expects to meet is very boring. I could say: Oh, yes I love amazing, adventurous and easygoing people! ..but.. Apart from the canonical way through the world is thought, I believe - and I hope - that in each person there is always something really unexpected. Although I hardly love engaging, cultivated and crazy guys, a lot of times what is unforgettable to me belongs to the apparently shy, wan, even boring one. So, I don't look for a preferred one, I can be more attracted from him, of course. I don't look at all. I smell, taste, savour the company of someone. I think it is like a new meal; you'll be more or less inspired thanks to your sensations, but it is only after you tried it that you really know if and how it surprised your sense. Even negatively, it'd be ever an experience. Besides... Since I like people that make me laugh, dreamy and stimulated through their own adventures, I believe that such philosophy lays the basis for the adventure itself. --- Something more about myself... Movies, music and books are three things that really characterize myself; I love so much to watch many films (also more than one a day) and I read books and listen to music in every moment. Some examples: Movies Million dollar baby V for Vendetta Remember the titans Rain man Philadelphia Full metal jacket Patch Adams Dances with wolves Books Essay Did you spot the gorilla? How to recognise hidden opportunities in your life - Richard Wiseman How Many Friends Does One Person Need? - Robin Dunbar Il cervello anarchico - Enzo Soresi Living Loving and Learning - Leo F. Buscaglia The emerging mind - Vilayanur Ramachandran Where good ideas come from: the natural history of innovation - Steven B. Johnson Fiction The picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer Oceano mare - Alessandro Baricco Seta - Alessandro Baricco Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore - Italo Calvino Marcovaldo - Italo Calvino The Third Twin - Ken Follett A Dangerous Fortune - Ken Follett World Without End - Ken Follett Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens The hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien The lord of the rings - J. R. R. Tolkien The Stieg Larsson's trilogy La solitudine dei numeri primi - Paolo Giordano Gomorra - Roberto Saviano L'Élégance du hérisson - Muriel Barbery Music International music Queen, the best of the best in the world. Cat Stevens, that i love so much and remember me my childhood. The Beatles, the milestone. Dire Straits, exciting rock. James Blunt, sound of my soul. Bob Marley Acoustic Alchemy, magic guitars.
