Perfect location on a lakeside in Lausanne!

Posted 18-Jan-2018
A wonderful hotel from famous Movenpick! Meanwhile, all seemed to be a bit worn out, in a way, not shabby, no way, but still feel an old fashioned way. Well, it was marvelleous for sure, but about 20 years ago. Some kind of a modern renovation inside the hotel is needed.

We had to move rooms three times

Posted 24-Dec-2017
We moved rooms three times due to building work happening in the hotel which we were not made aware of before our stay. The staff offered complimentary breakfast OR an option to change rooms, so we took the option of changin our room as our sleep was more important than a free breakfast. Unfortunately the stay was still unpleasant and disrupted by the building work going on in the hotel.

watch out for extra charges

Posted 27-Nov-2017
Pros: gym
Cons: toiletries!
Location: good location - easy exit by car, right on the water front for strolling around.
After spending several hundred CHF per day for the hotel, they additionally charged 35 CHF per day for parking. Given the international clientele, the hotel gym should be accessible 24/7 (it's unattended anyway) and at least some limited room service should also be available 24/7. My room was surprisingly outdated. VERY cheap toiletries - body wash and shampoo are NOT the same thing, but at Movenpick they are and they're dispensed from the same "common use" large bottle attached to the shower wall. Disgusting. I expected much better for the price paid for this hotel. The hotel gym was better than most, which is why I selected this place. But it wasn't worth the extra charges and poor quality room and toiletries.

Hotel experience

Posted 04-Nov-2017
Pros: Lobby is nice
Cons: Hotel carpet cleanliness, lack of pillow, provide separate shampoo and body wash.
Location: fine
The carpet is dirty and has lots of permanent stain. It should have been shampoed or steam cleaned. The body wash and shampoo is combined. Shower door is too small, water spills all over. Lighting in the room is below average.

Good hotel near to the lake

Posted 27-Oct-2017
Good food (but expect high prices as this is Switzerland) especially breakfast. Very convenient and easy to access the rest of Lausanne. Perfect for close access to the Olympic Museum (which is really good) and for the marathon which is why we were there.

Perfect hotel for the Lausanne Marathon

Posted 22-Oct-2017
We were in Lausanne for the marathon and the hotel was perfect for our needs! Walking distance to the race expo, start and finish lines, and the metro. It also had the unbeatable view of Lake Geneva and the French Alps!
