Ideal location in the city center of Lausanne, panoramic views of the lake, the Alps, and the Jura Mountains, excellent facilities and service at an international 4 stars standard, topped with a bold, new contemporary look are prerequisites of a perfect trip or holiday- these are a few highlights of the newly renovated Agora Swiss Night Hotel, the legendary hotel of the ’70s created by by renowned Swiss hoteliers, the Fassbind family. Located in a quiet and green area, just minutes away from Lausanne main rail station, a nice park and botanical gardens, and 1 km from Lake Geneva, the Agora Swiss Night Hotel promises a great Swiss night experience at best prices.
The hotel’s short stay guests are now enjoying a completely new offer, where the fitting-out and design of the atypical and mythical Agora Hotel belongs to the Paris Studio Hertrich & Adnet, who came up with an interesting approach pleasing to the eye, embracing a warm, modern and yet unconventional atmosphere.
Their goal was to achieve a contemporary look at a certain kind of today’s Switzerland with a strong identity, inviting and funny. A blend of natural colors and light colored woods, accentuated with vibrant red, decorates the public areas and guestrooms creating that cocoons-like feel, while the top floor, where is situated the breakfast restaurant, is quite different being more bright, white and breezy.
The entire layout is in fact an invitation to take a long mountains walk, the climbing to the heights starting from the basement right to the top of the hotel. On the “road”, you’re pleasantly surprised with nice combination of traditional materials, plenty of Swiss motifs, winks of acknowledgement and anecdotes that elevate you from the basement where you find the modern spa and fitness zone through the village square which is a lovely lobby to the heights to find “refuge” in the neat and comfortable rooms with large windows overlooking the garden, air-conditioned, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV with 200 international channels and other optional facilities. Finally, at the top floor, you reach the “roof of the world” with the breakfast room with glasses all around, offering a stunning view over Lake Geneva. Take a look!
