We stayed at the Mövenpick with our 2 month old baby last week. Checking in was easy, efficient and friendly. Unfortunately the room we got assigned smelled cigarette smoke (even though the whole hotel is smoke free) and we got an upgrade to a business room, a free drink and free transportation cards as an excuse, which was of course more than enough.

The room was situated in the newer part of the hotel and had two queen beds and a very large rainshower/toilet/amenities part. Beware that this whole area is open to the room and there is only a glass door to shut the shower and toilet.

We ate at the Brasserie Restaurant, again the personnel was friendly and the tartars we had were delicious.

Location of the Mövenpick is wonderfull as it is situated on the lakefront in a very nice and chic area. The Metrostation is 3 minutes away and the ride to the city center only takes a few minutes.

Be sure to park at the covered car park on the opposite side of the hotel (Ouchy) as it is 18 CHF per night and the hotel car park is very small and expensive at 35 CHF.

All in all it was a very pleasant stay

Stayed: August 2013, traveled with family

Dear Paul,

Thank you very much for sharing your Mövenpick experience with other travelers.

We are delighted to read that your wife, yourself and 2 month old baby enoyed spending some time at the Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne.

As a non-smoking hotel, we also find annoying when customers smoke in rooms as it is disrespectful for fellow clients. I am pleased to read that we aere able to offer you one of our latest business rooms.

You are right in mentioning that these rooms are designed with open bathrooms. Twin rooms in our business wing are fitted with glas doors.
As for our the car park situated underneath the hotel, you are right when saying that it is rather small (25 spaces). As written, another car park is situated right opposite the hotel with 850 spaces, permitting to have lower prices.

We sincerely hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family very soon.

Best regards,

C. Kramer
General Manager

This is a good, modern and reasonably priced hotel right near the lake and a 2-minute walk to the metro. Front desk attendant was incredibly friendly and helpful and the room was clean. While not particularly stylish or luxurious, Movenpick met my needs for a weekend in Lausanne.

One positive surprise was the gym, which is large and has tons of new, top-of-the-line equipment.

Love the view from the room. We took a lake view, it's amazing. The breakfast is international very delicious. Helpful and nice staff. The rooms are clean. Towels and linens are clean. The hotel is just across the train station which is great. The hotel offered us a free transportation tickets. Love it. However, parking spots in the hotel are limited so we parked across the street and the internet is very slow but it's for free. It was a nice to stay in that hotel. Definitely I will consider it.

Dear Esteemed Guest,

The entire Mövenpick Hotel Lausannne management team would like to thank you for providing us with your comments which are shared with the entire staff.

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your lake view room, offering astonishing sceneries on the lake as well as the French Alps.

Our breakfast offers a choice of 100 dishes to cater for all tastes.

Sadly, our car park was under refurbishment during your visit, hence the lack of space while you were in Lausanne.

We hope to welcome you again very soon with us.

Best regards

The location on the lakeside and close to the metro is excellent. The hotel rooms and facilities are pretty good. But everything is pretty expensive there for the standard offered. Look for a lake side room when booking.

Room Tip: Look for a lakeside view.

Dear Esteemed Guest,

Thank you for providing your feedback following your April stay at the Mövenpick Hotel Lausanne.

Your comments mentionned that you found our offer a bit pricey. We can understand this feedback, Switzerland being perceived as an expensive country. You might want, for your next visit, to have a look at our own website were special offers are displayed.

Why not try one of our business rooms when returning in Lausanne ? you will find everything you need an more... Rain shower, media hub, Nespresso machine...

We sincerely hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again very soon.

Best regards

Family of 5 had its lunch during our holydays. Food is very well presented, fresh. Children at all their food, vegetables included, which is always a surprise. Service is impeccable and friendly. View on the harbor is also nice, A good restaurant to have good food.

This is a good, modern hotel at a location where it would be hard to find anything comparable for this price. The rooms with a view of the lake are particularly recommended. The service at the front desk is excellent. We found the restaurant less successful: slow service and mediocre food, but we ate there only once.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the lake.

This is a modern hotel by the lake. The location is great and very close to the metro station where you can easily reach the citycenter. The personal at the front desk were very friendly and gave us lot of information about Lausanne and we even got a free metroticket valid for the three days we stayed. Our room was clean and quiet with a small balcony. Very standard room with all we needed. Breakfest was good but we thought it was a bit expensive. This is definately a good choise if you wish to visit Lausanne.
