Appartement à la hauteur de nos espérances, avec une très belle vue sur la cathédrale ainsi que sur le lac! Stéphanie est très à l'écoute de nos demandes et a fait en sorte qu'on parvienne à passer un agréable week end à Lausanne et je la remercie !
Je recommande vivement cet appartement :)
Perfectly described in the listing. Great view of the cathedral. Very comfortable and clean accommodation. Perfect location, within walking description to old town.
(1) Charming appartment and beautiful view.
(2) At the center of Lausanne.
(1) No washing machine was available.
(2) No sofa bed was available, instead mattresses were available to sleep on the floor.
We needed an apartment quick after an alternative booking was cancelled very close to our visit. This apartment is quite expensive compared to others but we trusted the photos, reviews and believe 'you get what you pay for'
Communications with Stephanie were initially prompt/helpful but on arrival we had a few issues.
A) The additional single mattresses are not very 'comfortable'. The bedlinen provided for them didn't fit well and looked old/grubby made worse by not being ironed. We could only find 3 pillows and again they were flat/uncomfortable.
B) there is no wardrobe/hangers/space to hang clothes - we used the treadmill.
C) the apartment is beautiful had not been cleaned thoroughly. We found dirty/ dusty surfaces in every room - disappointing given guests pay cleaning fee.
E) there is an odd/old/grubby/used set of hotel sized toiletries/shampoo/soaps supplied in the apartment. We would suggest bringing your own.
F) we received a text from Stephanie on the day of arrival asking us leave early (by 1pm instead of 6pm) this was inconvenient (and we thought rather rude) we replied to Stephanie but got no reply.
We had a terrible night in the apartment. Lausanne was having a heatwave. The apartment was extremely hot (note very few apartments in the area have air conditioning). We opened all the windows and being very central is was very very noisy late into the night.
The listing does say the apartment is child/family friendly and I would agree but for older children only. I was very conscious of the noise rules but young children and wooden flooring are a noisy combination.
Everyone was up early and we left/checked into a hotel. I advised Stephanie - the reply was not pleasant
'I won't even bother answering your comments on my apartment.....Concerning the check-in/check-out hours, they are completely up to me and I told you 6PM to be nice but it seems like I should have told you to leave before 12 as a hotel... To be honnest, I don't care that you are happy or not about it but I am chocked you dared telling me you were going to stay longer : I asked you to leave at a certain hour, this was it, I didn't ask you your opinion'
sadly our airbnb experience has not been a positive one :(
Très bon séjour dans cet appartement qui est totalement fidèle aux photos postées par Stéphanie. Nous n'avons pas rencontré l'hôte, mais les informations pour trouver l'appartement et son fonctionnement était parfaitement clair, donc ce n'était pas un soucis en soi.
Nous recommandons d'y séjourner pour un court ou même long séjour à Lausanne ! :)
L'appartement de Stéphanie est très agréable, propre, spacieux et bien situé, dans les hauteurs de Lausanne (avec vue sur le lac et la cathédrale).
Le logement est disponible pour 4 personnes et dispose d'un grand lit double. Au-delà de deux personnes, deux matelas sont disponibles.
Même si je n'ai pas rencontré Stéphanie, elle a été disponible pour répondre à mes questions.
En résumé, j'ai apprécié mon séjour dans ce logement et je le recommande.
Wonderful stay at Stephanie's place. The apartment is beautiful and well located. Stephanie was nice and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone!
