This hotel was a reasonable choice next to the the harbour on the lake.

I stayed in a room with a view of the lake and the little harbour in front of the hotel. The view was nice, but there was a little bit of noise in the mornings from the busy road outside.

The hotel had a lovely breakfast put on and the restaurant was crowded in the morning.

I found the room itself a little stuffy, and the air wasn't very fresh inside. I stayed in the hotel for five nights and this never improved.

My husband and I stayed at the Movenpick while visiting Lausanne recently on a business trip. It was our first ever trip to Lausanne. The hotel is in a fabulous location with spectacular views of the lake. We made a reservation via internet and did not ask for any type f room in particular. We arrived at the hotel early evening, right before sunset and learned that our room did not have a lake view. The receptionist was very professional and nice, for a minimal fee she upgraded us a larger lake view room. It was worth every Swiss Franc, the sunset was breath taking. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The service - excellent. We will definitely return as soon as we get a chance.

Chère Vanessa,

Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire. Nos chambres vue lac bénéficient en effet d'un panorama exceptinnel sur le lac Léman, le port et les Alpes Françaises, quoi de plus relaxant pour un séjour Lausannois.

Je suis heureux de lire que notre personnel vous a apporté le service que vous attendiez et nous nous réjouissons à l'avance du plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau.

An appropriate title i guess. Stars shine and so does this property.We checked in the hotel in December 2011 for a 3 night stay.Movenpick is a swiss home brand so the generousity was extended in swiss style too. Upon check in we were immidiately offered an upgarde to a suite overlooking the lake ouchy.The most impressive view from the room was what we saw in the night - across the lake on a backdrop of alps was the city of evian.(France).The next day we ferried ourselves to evian on a 20 minute cruise accross the lake to the french city.The location of Lausanne movenpick ia an obvious plus for the fact of it being right there on the lakefront.
The ouchy metro station is barely 5 mins stroll which connects you to the city of lausanne.
The rooms were clean and spacious. All in all expect a comfortable stay

Their rooms are nice and clean -- as you usually expect from hotel at this level. However, their service mind are beyond expectation. One of them even remembered my friend birthday and blessed him on that day. They also offered free welcome drinks at their bar -- so sad that we did not have a chance to try.

Great location right on the lake. Remember to book a room facing the lake. The hotel is dominated by students to the close-by IMD business school and is thus primarily a business hotel. Note that its not actually in Lausanne city. You need to take the tram to Lausanne, but its only a 5 min. trip from the close-by Ouchy station to Lausanne center.

Have stayed for 4 weeks and the staff has always been very good. The breakfast is good with good variation in choices.

The rooms are spacious but not the latest fashion. One major room for improvement is the WIFI. It will cut you off the WIFI at will and coverage is bad/low.

Room Tip: Lake view room

The hotel was overall nice and with standards especially if you are on a business trip. However too expensive and not worth of the price. The room was normal as another standard room in a 4 star hotel. Price 240 eur/night (no breakfast and taxes included). Extra breakfast 24 euros included jam, honey and the choice of tea or milk. The staff did not clean the room all day (I left the room at 8:00) and they knocked on my door at 17:00 when I had just came in and wanted to take a shower (off course I sent them away and the room was not cleaned that day). Wifi is rather expensive and i recall having paid 6-8 eur/per hour but I am not sure. Location is nice but not in the center of Lausanne and far from the shopping districts.
