“Clean, very attractive, just outside city”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Had an overnight stay with family en route to Swiss ski resort.

Pleasant welcome, child friendly play areas in reception.

Access to outdoor pool was locked.

Breakfast seemed expensive, would have been much cheaper if purchased with original online (Expedia) booking.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days over new year ,travelling with 2 children. Totally enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is very modern and clean. The staff are very helpful and polite. Small play/ t.v area for children, x-box, and computer which is free.
At first I was a bit worried about its location ,but you can catch the number 17 bus from outside hotel, which runs very frequently, and on time to Lausanne. It takes around 15/20 minutes via bus.
Taxis are too expensive, but the kids loved the buses ,and trains. If you havn' t booked a transfer, or hired a car, then I recommend you take a train from Geneva Airport, the bus number 1 which is directly outside train station ,then get onto the number 17 bus direct to the hotel.
The breakfast was lovely, I must say. .a really good variety ,and well cooked, although the scrambled egg was a bit cold, but still very tasty. We only ate once in the restaurant for tea. It was enjoyable ,but not a huge choice. The kids menu. .up to 12 years of age is quite good apart from the starters were not what many English children would eat....ie ...a tomato filled with cucumber. Perhaps a nice slice of garlic bread would have gone down well!
Couldn't fault our room, very comfy ,lovely bathroom ,and cleaned every day. The only problem I had was that I was debited twice for the stay. But I have been assured it will be credited into my account. Otherwise a lovely place, and extremely good value. We took a trip into Leysin...one of the mountain villages...it was beautiful....well worth a visit. Switzerland can work out expensive. .especially eating out, but it was worth it!

Room Tip: we were on the 2nd floor. Didn't hear any noise,although only view of car-park,which didn't...

I stayed at this hotel twice. Once in January of 2013 and once in December of 2013, and they were two very different experiences.

The first time we stayed in this hotel we had a room on the fourth floor, which is, from what I understand, an upgraded room. It comes complete with a balcony and a Nespresso machine in the room, which are nice amenities to have.

The second time we stayed at the hotel, we were informed that it was undergoing renovations, so we stayed in a standard room on the second floor. No balcony, no Nespresso machine, and the shower was a little broken (which is not much of an issue because it is an easy fix for the hotel, and I'm sure they take the time to do it).

In general, the hotel is really clean and comfortable for a stay. It's a little outside Lausanne, so it's best for anybody who has a car (otherwise it's difficult to get to). Internet is free, so is parking. And, as usual, Novotel breakfasts are very nice, plentiful and tasty.

This is my hotel of choice in the Lausanne area.

This hotel is easy to find from the autoroute and is on the outskirts of Lausanne, around 50 minutes away from Geneva airport. I chose this hotel as I am familiar with the Novotel brands and its location given meetings in French-speaking Switzerland. Parking is free and the reception area is welcoming with a large fire and snazzy furniture. The only downsides are that there are only 2 small desks at reception where you check in and check out, which means it can get busy as was the case when we checked out, and there is only one lift that takes you to the floors.

However, once I made it to my room, I found it to be the usual Novotel standard – it has everything you need but not over the top in terms of lavish furnishings. I particular enjoyed the rainfall shower, the free wifi and the free water. I slept well, despite the fact that the pillows tend to be on the thin side.

We had dinner in the restaurant, which was delicious but pricey for what you got, but this is Switzerland where the Swiss Franc is strong, and this was a hotel restaurant. Breakfast was sumptuous too and the staff nice and friendly.

In all, a nice hotel to stay at when on business.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room away from the autoroute/freeway

Nice hotel, kind staff - reception and restaurant, good quality food, spacious rooms although the bath was a bit too close to the bed.
The hotel is outside the city (10 mins drive), so plenty of parking spaces. Not suitable for people not travelling by car.

The hotel is quiet and clean, rooms are very well furnished. The beds are big and very comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is provided with fresh fruit and different breads, cheese and yoghurts, cooked food (sausages, bacon, eggs,..) and a large variety of cold and hot drinks.
The negative point : the hotel is located far from the city center. So it is the right place if you have a car. Otherwise, try a hotel closest to the tourist attractions.
