We stayed in a room that bordered the park. Was rudely awakened each morning (early!) by a flock of crows. No real character, but clean and efficient.

Stayed at the Mövenpick hotel in Lausanne in March 2013 during while on a business trip. The staff is very polite and willing to serve. The room was clean and nice, I had even a view to the lake although I didn't spend much time in the room looking at it. The traffic from the road was not too bad, but could be heard certainly to my third floor room. Wireless Internet connection was slow and didn't work properly from the room (330) as it was cutting the connection every few minutes thus making even basic Internet surfing rather painful not to mention transferring larger files.
Power plug adapters need to be signed from the reception or then I just failed to find on in the room, which is rather weird considering that the area is known to have a lot of businesses and business travelers. There is one US power output available at the desk, but I failed to locate any standard EU power outputs in the room.
Had the price been a little less the hotel would have earned higher rating. Value for the money just fell a bit short on my scale this time even though it's Switzerland where everything is expensive by default.

Dear Raitis20,

Thank you very much for your feedback following a trip to Lausanne in March 2013.
We are sorry to read that you did not much have time to benefit from the extraordinary lake views our hotel offers !
We have passed on and shared your comments to all our staff members to make sure that we would do our utmost to correct ourselves whenever possible.

Last year, our hotel has seen the change of all our windows from double to triple glazing and noise coming from the outside road is now reduced to the minimum.

We understand your frustration in regards to our internet connection that is offered to all our customers. Being a very busy hotel with corporate clients, you might have endured difficulties due to the enormous traffic. A very high band width is also available to choose from.

You are right in mentioning that US plugs are available in our rooms and that we provide (an enormous amount of) European adaptors to our clientèle. Both European and US plugs are avaialble from our business wing when booking one of our latest edition, the superb business rooms.

We hope that you will have the pleasure of discovering them during your next visit and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Best regards

I spent five nights in the Movenpick in Lausanne recently. Top class staff, friendly and needless to say efficient. Rooms spotless, lake view great and a nice leisure centre. Fabulous breakfast with a wide range of quality food available.
Well located also, a few minutes from the rail system and a few minutes walk from the OLympic Museum.

Seasoned traveller.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the lake probably worthwhile

I stayed at the Mövenpick for three nights while attending a conference, and would recommend it for any business traveler who has to visit a location nearby. For that purpose it's great: excellent service, decent free internet, clean & practical rooms, ok breakfast and especially a superb location for running in the morning or going out for a dinner in the evening. As a building it's as business-like as they get, with a very conservative interior and room style (with the only radical detail being a rubber duck in the bathroom). The view from the room varies between great and nonexistent, I was lucky to be on the corner of lake & park which worked very well.

Room Tip: Try and get a lake view.

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.
