The Hotel Regina is a friendly, comfortable and reasonably priced establishment. Recently remodeled, it is centrally situated in a very quiet pedestrian area. It is a few minutes from the train station, the convention and exhibition center (Palais de Beaulieu), museums, theaters, private clinics, the University Hospital (CHUV), banks, boutiques and department stores. There is good public transportation access close by, such as the metro station and bus stop. The City Tax, which has to be paid extra, entitles tourists to free access to Lausanne public transportation and each guest can get his or hers "Mobilis ticket" at the reception desk upon arrival.
