Not far from the motorway on a rise overlooking mostly business buildings, this newer, modern Novotel is easily located. Ample free off-street parking surrounds the hotel.

Check-in was swift, courteous, and information on a nearby shopping center was offered patiently. Our executive room #436 was spacious, bright with light colored wood furniture, and doors to separate bathroom and W/C. Excepting a few small spots on the light color carpet, all was super clean. The bed was very comfortable and with the quiet of the hotel, a good night sleep was had. Amenities in the room included a safe, robes and slippers, a fridge stocked with complementary non-alcoholic beverages, free wi-fi, and all you would ecpect. Though the weather did not permit use of the balcony, the sliding door opens the view over the hotel grounds to the horizon. Two nightstands were somewhat of a joke, small shelves just large enough to hold the phone on one side of the bed and an electronic clock on the other. Forget trying to place a book on one of these.

As is usual in these parts of the world, heat was turned off until next winter and the A/C delivered only cold air while the outside teperature in early June was 48 degree F. However, upon our request a portable heater was provided to keep the chill out of the room.

While not near the city center, this modern hotel provides all needed for those doing business in the vicinity or those just stopping over for a night. The accommodations are comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast buffet has all that is needed to get one started into the day. We would surely stay here again.

The hotel is new, and the rooms are great. Kettle / tea coffee making facilities, fridge, clean room and new and modern shower / bathroom. Very pleased with our stay. There is free wifi in the lobby area and in the rooms as well.

The hotel takes about 20 minutes by bus Number 17 directly to the city center. The bus stop is just about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Hotel reception staff were helpful and friendly. It is also summer now but the hotel air conditioning is working just fine (and at the right temperature), which is good.

There is also an excellent looking 'nature like' swimming pool in the hotel. The swimming pool has plants growing in therm to give a natural look, and it also has a very small fountain in the pool. A unique pool and great for kids and adults alike.

Very pleased with this hotel and I would recommend it for anyone who wants a decent stay in Lausanne.

I stayed there during a business trip and also had dinner in the restaurant. As the place is located a little bit out of the city of Lausanne it might not be ideal if you plan to stay there for a vacation. For me the location was perfect has it was close to the place where I had my meeting. The room was large, clean and quite. In addition the air condition made no noise at all which was very good as I stayed there on a very hot day. Also the food, dinner and breakfast was very good.

It was a very nice hotel and rooms. Neat and clean property with modern ambiance. Overall a pleasant stay except one big complaint I have is with the front desk and restaurant communication/policy.
When I was checking out, I received an unexpected bill of $200 for breakfast services (2 rooms for 2 days). When I inquired about it, I was given a blunt answer that breakfast is not included in the charges. That would have been understandable if the front desk mentioned it on Check-In or if it was ever mentioned when we were having our breakfast. (I am more used to having breakfast included or at least when something is being charged I am supposedly given a bill with my room number and being asked to sign for it.) Is that too much to ask for? And when I asked about the reason of no communication either at check-in or at restaurant, I was again bluntly and a bit rudely now, shown a TV screen behind front desk, showing charges for services, ironically it was all written in either French or German (I am not sure, as I know neither), but nothing in English. (Just to point out, this was the only odd and out of usual experience in our 4 hotels stayed over 10 days in Switzerland. So, I concurred that it is not something totally unreasonable I was expecting in a foreign country.)
Otherwise, it was a good stay at the hotel, mostly and a good experience in Lausanne. Thank you for having us.
Just to point out, it is located a bit away from Lausanne city, but that is a subjective situation. Not something I would recommend if you are travelling heavy or with family. If not, then a quiet place to stay with beautiful views.

The hotel is fantastic - simple tasteful decor, clean & fresh room, and they even have a kid's corner at the lobby to entertain the litte one while you talk to conceirge or checking in/out. Some (i mean some) staff are really helpful - thank you Georges.

But I doubt that was the right place to stay for my vacation. The hotel is located few km from city - what that means to me when I first arrive Lausanne main station, and made a decision not to drive after reading all the comments on driving in CH - take a interim bus from the main train station (2 stops away), change to bus 17 (35min ride), and lug our stuff up the slope to get to the hotel. It's really not the highlight of the trip especially in the heat of 32C summer.

To add to the challenges, 2 drivers that we encountered do not speak English, so we ended up taking the wrong bus (same bus number plying different route), and not able to get help on where to alight (bus skipped some stops as not many people alight in the outskirt).

Even if all went smooth, the journey to city (if you want to see lake leman etc) will eat up at least 2 hrs of your time. Consider this when planning your trip.

Having said, I would still consider staying this hotel if I am looking for a holiday doing nothing. Just hire a car when you arrive at airport.

A very good hotel, well designed lots to do and the rooms clean and fresh. restaurant was great but very expensive like Switzerland is but 29 Francs for a burger and 12 francs for a whisky was steep. Only complaint the check out was too slow one person on the desk with five people waiting is not acceptable when you build yourself as a buisness hotel.
