“Worth to Pay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I have stayed many times in this warm and nice hotel. It is just on the lake of Geneva, and very good to have a long walk along the lake since it is not climbing like everywhere else at central Lausanne. In summer time, the square is very lively and people walks, plays, sits, sings, etc.
The staff at the hotel are very kind and take care of you. In my previous stay I commented about the pillow that was very soft for me. In my last stay, I have seen that they have put the one that I selected last time. The rooms are a little bit Swiss size (relatively small compared with in Turkey), but everything is so arranged that even small details are there. The price is reasonable, there are nice restaurants around and you can take metro to go to centre of Lausanne in max 10 minutes. You don't need to take a taxi here in Lausanne.
Moevenpick Hotel has a very nice restaurant with delicious food, and icecream is perfect there. I like also the breakfast at this hotel with a lot of variety which is not so common for Swiss hotels. The hotel returns every penny you paid with their offereings and service. I am looking for another occasion to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: My taste is lakeview rooms, which rate slightly higher; but in summer it really pays off.

Spent a week in this property. Was more than satisfied with everything. We lived in a Business room. It is so spacious, modern, fully equiped. Besides, hotel is situated on the embankment and next to metro. So you easily get anywhere you need. And in the summer, it is so cool to walk along the lake and breath fresh air. Location is the best in Lausanne, I guess. And I'm not for the first time in Lausanne. Grab it!

Room Tip: Do not save on and take a Business room instead of standard one. You will enjoy it!

I stay at this hotel several times per year. It is convenient out office in Lausanne.
The hotel is convenient and very simple to get to via metro when you arrive by train at the central station.
I find the rooms largely adequate. I have stayed occasionally in the 'new' rooms on the back side of the building , these offer better quality showers, and other amenities. It is worth checking if they are available.
I have been disappointed that the hotel or (chain) does not offer any type of loyalty program. I have stayed here many times but seems there is little benefit to multiple stays

Room Tip: the newly renovated rooms are quite nice

Stayed one night here on the way to Spain. The hotel is very nice and the staff was helpful and friendly at checkin. I was traveling with a baby and a dog which is not always easy, but the room was setup with the baby cod on arrival which was great. I also loved the lake view. Worth paying a little extra for.

Since we couldn't leave the rom we ordered room service and the food was great. Compliments to the kitchen.

Now to some warnings. The hotel garage has a maximium height of 1.85m. it would have been nice to get a heads up before driving down the narrow alley and being forced to back out due to our roof rack. Excusable though. not excusable though was the water temperature when I had a shower later the evening. I had goose bumps once I was finished and had to warm up in bed first. I have read about this in another review and can only back it up. This should be addressed by the hotel.

Room Tip: take the lake view

I know this Hotel for different purposes: business lodging, dinner in the very nice brasserie and summer ICe-cream.. :-) It's very well located along the lake in Lausanne, on the beautiful promenade. It's very clean and comfortable inside, thou with a modern furniture (I normally prefer old-fashion ones). The staff is very kind and the service is always excellent, They have an internal small bar/brasserie very nice during the evening. Prices are higher during the week (business related) but can go down a lot during the weekend where tourists are. The location is also very close to the Metro station, about a 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: I would suggest the rooms positioned on the lake side, very nice!!
