“Well located hotel, friendly staff”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Hotel is very modern. Much better than some of the older ibis hotels in Europe. Delicious breakfast buffet.

Location is ideal, shopping district is very close and also the cathedral. Hotel offers free public transportation card for the duration of the stay. I stayed one night in the hotel. For a short stay in Lausanne, I recommend to visit the Olympic and l’Art Brut Museums. Good place for drinks and beers is ‘King Size Pub’ nearby.

Good value for money. Overall very pleasant stay, friendly staff.

I booked this hotel when in Lausanne for a conference - 3 days. Rooms and service is good. Location excellent. Short walk from metro station. If you want can even walk to the city centre. However, if you are going to take breakfast as I did you may be disappointed. They have the same cold breakfast menu everyday. Hot options such as fried egg, sausages, bacon, hashbrown are NOT served. There is cereal, bread and spreads, fruits, yogurt that is about it. Boiled eggs are also available with cold meat and cheese. Though I am happy with the hotel and service I think they need to have more options for breakfast menu

Stayed as a couple for a night. Trip from the train station is quite quick and one must take the route number suggested by the hotel (#3). Check in was very quick and were greeted by an ever smiling staff. The being the typical ibis standard and beds were comfortable to sleep in. We also received a travel pass which covered local travel to most places that one would like to visit though the last mile commute will require travelling by foot at most times. However, we didn't mind and found the travel pass very useful. The breakfast buffet, served at the ground floor next to the reception, had a decent spread which we liked. Overall, I good place to stay and like our previous stays were happy to return to an ibis.

Dear guest,

We thank you for your comments following your stay at Ibis Lausanne Centre hotel.

It's always a pleasure to receive a positive feedback.

Please rest assured that we will share your comments with our team.

As you wrote it, public transports pass allows to use bus and metros in Lausanne but you cannot have a direct access in a lot of streets because Lausanne is a "pedestrian city". So, for this reason, you have to finish you travel walking few meters.

Once again, we thank you for your comments and we hope to see you soon.

Best regards

As others mentioned you need to take the 3 or 21 from Lausanne Main station. Not really walkable as it is all uphill.

Room 525 is a bit small, and the window doesn't open. But the overall cleanliness and personality of the hotel is good. The staff are nice and efficient.

What I didn't like was the fact that converters weren't available on loan from the hotel. You have to purchase one from the vending machine, which I thought was cheap. No mini bar and a simple thing like a chocolate on the pillow would have been nice.

But overall for a two star hotel it's fine here. Lots of restaurants and shopping area newarby.

Room Tip: Room 525 has no opening window. And the room is a bit small.
