Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ibis Lausanne Centre is very easily accessible by various means of transportation and is actually walking distance (15-20 minutes) to the train station making it a good business trip option in the not so insanely expensive category. The rooms are not too big but the beds are and especially if you have a courtyard facing room, a quiet, undisturbed night’s sleep is almost guaranteed.
The breakfast doesn’t have a huge selection so if you are there for several weeks, it does get a bit boring but their bircher muesli is a must try.

Booked the Ibis Lausanne centre for a weekend break Friday to Sunday and we had a really good time, thank you!

Knowing the Euro2020 Suisse vs Spain match was on, I asked for a quiet room. We were on the 3rd floor at the back. No view to speak of, but nice and quiet. Aircon was quiet too. A result. Rooms are super clean and classic Ibis style. Ours had a large and very comfy double bed, plus an armchair sofa bed for our son (8yrs) and it worked perfectly for us.

Breakfast was OK - maybe the quality of some of the products could be worked on, but good quantities of everything and good coffee machine.

Car parking - there are 32 spaces and 100+ rooms. Plus there are cars in there from the Mini dealership in the same building, so it really is hit and miss as to whether you get a space. I'd advise having a plan B ready of you're going by car. Maybe staff could suggest alternatives so you're prepared?

Staff all really nice, warm welcome and efficient. Made good use of our Lausanne Transport Cards to whizz around town on the Metro (nearest station Riponne by the Cathedral) to Bellerive Plage (fabulous even in the rain lol!). We explored Flon, Parc de la Legende (delightful bronzes sculptures that tell a story) and Parc Montbenon too. LTC gave us discount entry (free for under 15) at the Olympic Museum which was great.

Ah such a good weekend and I can't believe it's a week ago already! As we left, we all said we wanted to come back, so hopefully we will!

Exactly what we needed. Comfortable room and bedding, very large shower tub. The Breakfast was nice, with attention to avoid disposable material, fresh yoghurts, two coffee machines.
The free Lausanne pass allowing free public transportation (and other advantages) was appreciated.

It's a comfortable hotel, with good air-conditioning and noise insulation. The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. The pass they gave us provided free travel on buses and metro, plus discounts elsewhere - saved us a lot of money. There are one or two things you might miss, such as a fridge and a safe, but for a budget stay in a very convenient location this is very recommendable.

The Ibis in Lausanne is like any other Ibis and is very well run. It’s in the centre of the city and only minutes from all the main attractions and restaurants/bars.

My room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The room looked like any other Ibis room, but it was perfect for a night.

Breakfast was very good and because of Covid the buffet was actually put together for you. The wonderful staff put a tray together with whatever you wanted. There was a good selection of hot and cold food and it was very tasty. It was actually one of the best breakfasts I’ve had at an Ibis and I’ve stayed at many around the world.

The staff are all amazing and the hotel is a great choice if you’re on a budget or if you just want to stay in a hotel that provides the basics, but deliver their services with excellence!

Stayed for two nights for the Lausanne Diamond League.
Hotel is a fair walk from the train station (c. 20 minute walk) and pedestrianised city centre, but there is a frequent bus service from almost outside the front door. Stay includes free public transport ticket for duration of stay.
Staff were welcoming and friendly, and kindly held luggage following an early morning arrival.
Room is a standard Ibis, only downside is lack of plugs (and none near bed).
Breakfast well organised given COVID restrictions and good enough range.
Would happily recommend.

Me and my family recently stayed at Ibis Lausanne Centre for the second time, and once again, it exceeded my expectations. The staff is truly the best—friendly, attentive, and always ready to assist. The entire team’s commitment to excellence, coupled with Stefan’s personal touch, enhances the overall experience, making Ibis Lausanne Centre a standout choice for hospitality.
Ibis Lausanne Centre should undoubtedly retain its exceptional staff, as their warmth and attentiveness contribute significantly to making it a standout choice for hospitality with the best staff ever.

The cleanliness standards are impeccable, maintaining a high level throughout the hotel. The location is excellent, making it convenient to explore Lausanne. Everything about our stay was exceptional, and we're already planning to return.

Furthermore, one noteworthy perk of staying at Ibis Lausanne Centre is the complimentary public transport tickets provided. This thoughtful inclusion adds tremendous value to the guest experience, making it incredibly convenient to explore the city without any additional cost. It's a fantastic amenity that reflects the hotel's commitment to enhancing guests' overall stay.

Highly recommended for a delightful and comfortable experience!

My stay at this hotel was good, it was certainly clean and is in a good location. However, during my one-night stay, the WiFi failed and was not restored. I also did not like that breakfast was in the reception area, although I realise this is part of the design and cannot be changed easily. Also staff did not wipe tables when breakfasters left, so my table was covered with crumbs from previous diners. However, these are minor points, this hotel is good value for Lausanne.

Yes you can use the pass on check out date but only to the railway station. You will need to buy a separate ticket to Geneve. The pass is for Lausanne region only. I hope this helps. For more info please log into Lausanne Tourisme website. Enjoy Lausanne!
Lausanne, Switzerland
Dear Anny G, When you will arrive at Lausanne train station, you can either catch bus n°3 or n°21. Both buses take the same direction to arrive to our hotel. You have to get out at the stop called "St-Roch". Our hotel is located 20 meters down the street. We remain at your entire disposal for further information.

As for as Car parking goes, There is ample car parking available in the hotel. Yes you cannot park out side of the hotel as the is the main street of Lausanne. My experience is that I always found car parking for myself.
