“Excellent option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

I've visited Lausanne in business and i've booked a room in this hotel. Excellent location, nearby the beautiful lake and with a breathtaking view of the mountains, you can use this hotel to rest or to be the starting point of a journey around Lausanne.
The hotel is very confortable, the brakfast is very good and you have good restaurants and excellent transports nearby.
Bus to the city center or subway are in walking distance (5 minutes) and the hotel provide you with a ticket that allow you to take all transports for free.
Excellent option if you like beautiful landscapes!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room...totally worth it!

This hotel is located in the pretty area of Ouchy, a 5 min tram ride downhill from the main town of Lausanne. It's ideally located across from the marina with access to many restaurants and a lovely lake side walk to neighbouring towns such as Lutry. We found the reception staff to be very pleasant and helpful especially when we asked to change rooms due to the arrival of a very noisy family in the room next to ours. Unfortunately for us however this meant moving to a slightly smaller room on a lower floor. The decor in the superior rooms was fine and the standard of both bed and bathroom linen was very good. We chose a garden as we wanted a quiet stay and did not want to be on the side facing the main road. Despite the construction work taking place we were not disturbed. The main concern for us making a return booking would be the level of soundproofing between rooms as we found this to be sub standard for a 4 star hotel. The gym was a good size for a hotel and very well equipped. Our main gripe would be the expensive internet charges. I find it insulting when a hotel charges such ridiculous amounts for internet access. With their current room rates there is no need for this to be an extra charge especially when you also have to pay for parking as the hotel does not provide any. We also did not eat at the hotel we found it overpriced, we ate for less at restaurants right on the marina.

Walk in, checked a few rooms and took junior suite, other rooms seemed quite small...
great facilities in-room including panoramic view, red heat light in bathroom to keep you warm after shower, nice stay overall:)

Top performance in catering for my 18yo son who has Coeliac's disease and must eat gluten-free. Clearly have done their research and provided a first rate, fine dining experience.

just returned from Lausanne after a long weekend attending to attend a friends wedding . The hotel was clean , quite and the exceptionally well placed to explore the lake side , and with a Metro startion a 2 min walk away you can be up in the city center within 5 mins .
Staff where polite and very efficent and the breakfast although quite expensive was of a high quality with loads of choice . If your staying and more than 2 nights it is well worth paying the extra for a lake view , Room was of a good size , nice knig sized bed , mini bar and well equiped bathroom .
would certainly use this hotel again .

Overall our stay was adequate for a business hotel. The staff were friendly, helpful, and gave some good advice on hiring a car for a few hours. Ouchy, where the hotel is located is very picturesque, and the hotel is across the road from the edge of the marina.

We have free transport on Lausanne trams and buses all weekend, which is included with any hotel package for the duration of your stay. The centre of Lausanne is about 5 or 6 minutes on the tram (don't walk - its all up a steep hill)

As were are moving to Lausanne, we chose not to take a lake view room (our new apt has this and we will have lots of time for window gazing) however the view from these rooms is limited, judging by the blinds which cover them.

We therefore took the option of the Garden View (photo provided) which is actually a roof top, and building site. While I would not hinder the hotel renovations and development, this was not mentioned at time of booking. The drilling which commended at 8.30 on a Monday morning (granted, past wake up time for most) was rather hindering to a lie in.

I understand that these renovations are due to finish in autumn of this year.

Definitely recommend a Movenpick ice-cream while looking at the view, but not accompanied by a CHF11.50 beer.

Room Tip: Depends on how much time you expect to gaze out the window of you room.... on that bases choose lake...
