I was very excited to stay at this hotel because... have you seen the pictures? The building is quite a landmark... and it's by the lake... and we had booked a deal with "free tickets" to the Olympic museum which also included breakfast and an upgrade to a room with Lake view and a balcony! The price was high for... More

Location is superb, right on the lake, parking is easy and a whole minute from the Metro (which is free to use for hotel guests). A solid 3 star hotel which was clean and provided a great continental breakfast. We would use it again.

Stayed here on our way to Italy. Booked it because it was the cheapest I could find on Lake Geneva. The staff were not particularly friendly but nor were they particularly rude/unfriendly. Rooms were very small but clean and comfortable. I had asked for adjoining rooms less than 24 hours prior to arriving and this had been arranged for us.... More

The Aulac is right in the thick of life on the lake front at Lausanne. The rooms are well appointed and have a nice view. Good wifi access. There is no car parking on hotel property, and nowhere even to drop off bags. The nearest parking is an underground public garage a few hundred meters up the street. Great hotel... More

Excellent value hotel in a great location, central to sights, ferry and shops. The room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. We walked to all areas along the lake front and caught the train to central Lausanne. The ferry was straight across the road making a day trip to Evian very easy.

This is a superbly located hotel; about a minute from the waterfront and even less than that from the metro. The staff are friendly and there is a cheery atmosphere about the place. It is a three star, but it is everything a good three star should be – nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. At... More

I came to Lausanne to enjoy myself by the lakeside and I was not disappointed though it was a bit costly. The hotel is good and the breakfast is good. However, things are pricey by the lake area (or perhaps Lausanne in general). What I think needs improvement is the directions to the hotel and the general idea about Lausanne.... More

We were given a tiny room...but that seems to be standard in Europe unless you want to pay a super premium...but it had a fantastic view of a marina, the lake, and the promenade. It was beautiful! Every night there was music on the promenade, boats racing on the lake, a little market, and people happily enjoying life. The hotel... More

From the beginning this experience was so substandard I could not believe I was in Switzerland. the mattress are soft and springy, the rooms small. When I asked for a machine coffee at breakfast I was told very rudely that I would have to put it on my room. The final straw for me was when I got out of... More

The hotel isn't the most up to date but everything works and everything is spotless. I was there attending a meeting and therefore i can only say for this type of thing the food was hot, on time and fine. The bedrooms aren't huge but are comfortable, with windows that open and all the usual facilities (tea coffee mini bar... More
