“Best place in Lausanne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I have stayed in a few hotels in Lausanne when there on regular business trips. I think this is the best. Ideal location on the lake, very pleasant room, the restaurant is very good - expensive but no more than anything in Switzerland. Staff everywhere are delightful and helpful (not always the case among the Swiss). There is a good Thai and also a pizza place around the corner which are good alternatives if you are on a budget. The walks in both directions along the lake a very attractive and relaxing.

Great hotel. Sibling of the Beau Rivage.
I stayed at a renovated room, very comfortable, with view to the lake. Very nice classical design.
You have access to the Beau Rivage which has exceptional services and food but I would say the rooms here are nicer, fresher and much more comfortable.
Breakfast is quite average though, but there is a little cafe/boulangerie next door that is not bad at all.
Exceptional service.
Highly recommended.

This is a very nice place in an excellent location for views, right at the side of the Lake in Ouchy.

The hotel has modern décor, and the room we stayed in was an executive suite on the front of the hotel overlooking the lake (I asked for am upgrade as it was my birthday and we got it).

The room had a large comfortable bed, large flat screen TV, though even the normal TV entertainment and music channels were chargeable. There’s a mini-bar (chargeable), an electronic safe, tea and coffee making facilities, and plenty of wardrobe space. The room was well sound proofed from the road in front, and had electric black out blinds.
The bathroom is a nice size, bath, separate shower cubicle, large sink area, with hairdryer, hotel robes and slippers.

There are a limited number of free spaces in front of the hotel reception, and an underground secure car park adjacent to them, which costs 25 CHF per day.

The outdoor pool was closed when we were there, though it was I think a little out of season, but we couldn’t even look at it as it was shielded behind a locked entrance.

The metro up to Lausanne centre is a couple of minutes from the hotel and is one line up there. The hotel issues us with a free local transport pass on arrival too.

We didn’t eat in the hotels Italian restaurant or take breakfast, but the menu did sound very good.

A nice place to stay, very clean, good staff, and an excellent location. Downside is, it’s expensive…..5 star Lake view in Switzerland!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to one of the exectutive suites on the front overlooking the lake.

One of the best hotels in Lausanne, clean, quiet, not huge, excellent service. L'Academia resto is actually one of the best italians in the city with a very good choice of wines.
Always a pleasure to stay there and Imgo pretty often.

Room Tip: Rooms 1000 in the building up from swimming pool or next to swiming pool with lake view are extremly...

Chose this hotel for the last night of our trip through France and Switzerland and wish we could have stayed for longer. The hotel is in a beautiful location on the shore of Lake Geneva, we paid a little extra and opted for a lake view room and had stunning views of the Lake and the Mountain from our balcony. We stayed in mid September so the weather was just taking a turn but I imagine this would be a wonderful place to stay in mid summer as there is an outdoor pool. Our room was very well appointed and clean and although the hotel is expensive you do get what you pay for. You are given a metro card for the duration of your stay which is great as you can just hop on the metro just a short walk away from the hotel and go into Lausanne centre. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the restaurants.

Booked the "Executive" level garden-view room on the hotel's American Express discount, and it was a good deal (around $300/night) given how expensive Lausanne is--the city seemed more expensive to us than the other areas in Switzerland that we visited. Lovely huge and immaculate room with A/C, which was necessary even in October. Very quiet and we slept well. Our room looked out on gardens and we were not on the street side. As with all other hotels in which we stayed in Switzerland, great shower and excellent water pressure. The hotel as other reviewers note is in Ouchy and is very near the port and the metro, so it is very convenient for exploring Chateau de Chillon, old town Lausanne, etc. Staff very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on it.
