“Lovely waterfront and marina, great access by Metro up to the rest of Lausanne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Great location, marina with restaurants, bars and a few touristy shops. Good parking opposite Movenpick hotel as well as a large open air parking. Metro goes right up into Lausanne from Ouchy. Great to walk, run or cycle along the waterfront and there is a large open air pool close by (walking distance) lovely public parks on the lake side, the Olympic Museum (terrific!), an art museum.... For cyclists, a lovely place to base yourself to then ride up to Vevey, Montreux and beyond, with spectacular views of the lake, on generally fantastic roads.

“Nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Disappointed that such a good location was so badly lit in the evening. No wonder it was deserted.
In the afternoon, excpet for the boat service patrons the lake front was also destered
