“Budget, small and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Pros: For a budget hotel this is a great choice. Rooms are very clean. You get free WiFi, TV and shower in the room. I have tried many budget hotels in and near Lausanne. Most of them are old and/or not very clean. Ibis budget is so far my favorite.
Cons: Parking is not free. It is a little bit far from the city center though it is very close to a bus station which quickly takes you to the train center of Renens.

I am sure this is a very convenient hotel if you are coming by car - it being located right next to a main road - but if you are coming by public transport it is a long way out of Lausanne and the pedestrian access is poor (at one point we had to walk along the slip road to a main road with no pavement). Once inside the hotel had obviously been recently refurbished, but they seemed to have spent all the budget on trendy lighting instead of anything useful, like a plug for the sink. There was also an irritating design flaw. There were light switches directly above the bed instead of slightly to one side which meant that every time we sat up in bed we switched the lights on or off. Like all Etap hotels the room was small, But more unusually, the bathroom facilities were in the main room, rather than separate (although the toilet was in a separate cubicle) which is not generally my preference. One positive point is that the bunk bed was lower from the ceiling than in many Etap hotels and so there were no bruised heads. All in all this was not the right hotel for a family using public transport and, considering the price, not good value for money either.

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel but the only critism I have was that I payed for parking while I was a guest in hotel.
I dont think that hotel guest should pay to park in the hotel compound especially when it is not that busy.

Stayed August 2012:
Has a modern look, was clean and tidy, with very nice staff. The rooms are small and seemed smart but cheaply furnished, with no dividing bathroom, the shower and basin ( no plug) are in the same room as the bed with the toilet in a cupboard with no lock. (not great if you had kids I would guess!) They only provide cheap very thin towels in the room, so ask for more, your need them. Its location is next to a very busy road, so is noisy if the windows are open. The air conditioning did not work in the two rooms we had, this was disappointing and was not rectified during our stay. The rooms have very little space so not recommended for a long stay, however for a stopover or two nights great. We stayed 4 nights and it was difficult working around the luggage and clothes for that long a stay, the rooms are not really designed for longer stays. Breakfast was very good value and well presented with the common continental choices, the breakfast room was very clean and tidy and well serviced. They have no bar or evening provision and are charge for parking (small minded!) You will be charge each time you enter the car park….and this will mount up if you keep moving the car.
Best part of the hotel is the staff, when we stayed they were great, as helpful as they could be.

Room Tip: 7th floor would be best looking over the apartments at the back of the hotel, this would be away fro...
