The Hotel Aulac is right on the water's edge in Ouchy, which is literally five minutes from the centre of the city. It is also located right next door to the Metro station, so if you are arriving by train and getting off at Lausanne, walk across the street to the Metro and take a ride to Ouchy and save the CHF15 taxi fare.
The hotel has a very average entry and reception area, but check-in was done efficiently, and a free travel card was supplied to each of us for the duration of our stay. This scheme apparently operates for all hotels in Lausanne. The room we stayed in for four nights was like a small suite...a lounge room in addition to the bedroom, and a toilet separate from the bathroom. All the facilities were clean and in good order, and the beds were comfortable.
The breakfast provided was very generous and suitable for all appetites. All hotels in Switzerland are expensive compared to other European cities (except for Norway where everything is super expensive) but we still believe that Hotel Aulac represents good value for money and would recommend it to other travellers.
