that it is close to the station the room was extremly small (for a single superior room) and the whole hotel has not seen any obvious renovation since the sventies - well it is stylish again somehow ;-)
Fairly good location, comfortable room, friendliness of staff, nice breakfast room
I have only stayed 2 nights and have been away much of the tume, so I cannot really answer this question. There was nothing that made me understand that this would be a 4$ hotel: small reception, basic equipment in the rooms, everything quite small
near the station far from the lake
Covenient, quiet, comfortable and clean. Excellent for an overnight stay on business. Nothing to report
Location is great, close to train station and metro Beware of the floor. The 2nd is like a basement. Staff is not friendly.
Comfortable, clean hotel, friendly receptionist, convenient location, reasonable price except for internet price which I think you should include in basic price. There was also no room apart from the bedroom wheere I could go quietly to use my computer. All very good
Position to station. Size of breakfast plates.
the comfort of the room
it was good hotel little bit cheap, but near main railway station 5 min. of walk, the breakfast was good, but it's not included to the price, check it! The personal was frendly.
It was very central especially convenient to the train station and bus terminal. The town centre is easy walking distance. Extremely quiet rooms which were also large and airy.
Large rooms Bathrooms are divided from room by glass wall, meaning whenever the the light in the bathroom is on the whole room has the light. Not very convenient when u are in 2.
The room was very large and offered a nice view. The location of the hotel is great. The room was well designed however the atmosphere was therefore a bit cold. The room was located on the fourth floor. We had to take two different elevators to get there,
good and beautiful 'Modern Art' Hotel extra charges for everything (e.g. SAT-TV, breakfast, etc) reduces value for money drastically
The comfort of the room, the services and the bathroom.
Big modern room No King Size bed
Clean hotel and helpful staff. I booked a single room and was pleasantly surprised by the generous size of the room. Very close to the station (and metro) - perhaps 400 mts away, so easy to get to with luggage. Phone calls to the UK using the hotel phone were, as promised, cheaper than using my pay-as-you-go mobile phone. Having to pay extra for wireless (or wired, for that matter) internet access was a disappointment, since in an equivalent hotel in the UK it tends to come included in the room rate.
Location Beds an pillows are unconfortable
Great location, very very spacious rooms, good breakfast buffet, friendly and professional stuff
perfect location, next to metrostation, only a few minutes from city centre
The excellent location right next to the Metro stop and its charming rooms offer a very good value for the money
Staff were very helpful. Location was excellent.First Class hotel. The room was rather small.
Very small room
Nice and clean room, good smell. Wireless internet. Door to balcony, which allowed me to refresh the room. Room was quite small. Airco not working (or not available?).
Good location,and in a quiet district The room was incredibly "small". For two adults sharing we had to have the balcony windows open, to mover around. It felt very claustrophobic.
Very quite situation No pay-TV (movies)
good location the Food was awful
nicely decorated the room is extremely small roadworks in city centre and the hotel is difficult to be reached
Perfect location, nice rooms. The free internet service. Rooms are comfy but not perfectly clean. Not user friendly for babies, as they have no ramps to access the reception, only stairs. Very expensive breakfast.
We had a discount : 250 chf 2 nights, which is a quite good price. The hotel is easy to find when driving out from the Motorway. The room is clean and big. A few more parking spaces would be welcome. And also, too bad the hotel is not located closer to Lausanne, one needs a car if he wants to move around. A larger choice in the menu of restaurant would also be nice.
The hotel is in the process of being renovated to a good standard. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The hotel restaurant offres a good range and the food is excellent. The bed was very uncomfortable on the first night but I was to tired to investiogate. On the second night I realized the mattress was upside down so I stripped the bed and turned the mattress. This was a bad mistake by the housekeepers!
the room service was bad. in a way, you don't get the same answer from the hotel staff if you call and ask about something you want. for example, i called room service and order dinner. the selection was limited and i wanted Stake. the answer was, the kitcken is closed and no more stake. i called after 5 minutes and i have ordered the stake.
Location is excellent. A little disappointment regarding the breakfast and the food at the dinner.
We got a great deal on Booking.com, so was much cheaper than usual. Nice room very clean We were out all morning and our room was not cleaned (even though the cart was outside out room as we left), when the lady came to clean in the afternoon we were having a nap, so she just gave us some extra coffee, sugar and whitener and thats it. You need a car if your staying here
very modern hotel , with easy parking (handy to the autoroute although not near the tourist area). Very clean and efficient as you would expect in Switzerland. More business than toursist oriented. Rooms favour form over function, not very practical for couples travelling together especially the bathrooms which seem designed for one...and then attached to a double room.
The breakfast was very generous and there was a variety of food to choose from. The room was clean and of a good size.
well decorated, efficient. clean The majority of staff is competent, with few notable exceptions at the reception.
Nice room. Nice staff at reception, bar and room. I had reserved a deluxe room on the internet so I was a bit disappointed to find that the reception staff had no record of the reserevation, or indeed if there was even a room avialable. Luckiy there was, and it was very good.
convenient & quiet
Real friendly and helpful front desk.
Fish restaurant at the entrance Service at the cafe
Good service from reception staff. Poor value for money.
Location Food is terrible and very expensive. Only the Icecream is good.
It's location, the view and the comfort. Nothing.
i liked the lake view from the room which gave it a resort feel. other wise room is small though decent enough for 2 adults. we were travelling with a baby and a baby cot was provided. parking is 26 chf a day..the lake promenade is just outside the hotel and the metro is 100m away. the hotel gives a free travel card..
I stayed at the Movenpick because of the location (next to Lake Lemain, also called Lake Geneva). My room was reasonable in size (not large by US standards, but large by European standards) and had a beautiful view over the lake with the snow capped mountains behind. Absolutely worth paying the extra for the view! The breakfast buffet is very expensive, but you can order a la carte and it's much more affordable. There's a very good fitness center in the hotel (one of the best hotel fitness centers in my experience) with a sauna in it. The hotel has three restaurants, and the chef is very good (same kitchen for all three restaurants, just different atmosphere), and have a fine wine selection. Walking near Lake Lemain is one of the reasons to stay at this hotel. Enjoy! When ordering a la carte for breakfast, the waitstaff are often slow to the point of it being a problem.
Location Clean room was not very good
We had a wonderful view of Lake Geneva, the room was clean, and the breakfast buffet was nice. We enjoyed watching a few small birds beg for crumbs in the restaurant. The safe in the room was easy to use. We found the room's lighting to be inadequate and the shower arrangement was hard to keep the water from splashing out. The halls were dark and unattractive.
there are wonderful staffs and very helpful. it is easy to go every where
It is quite good. Bathroom can be more spacious. Breakfast is very expensive 32 CHF, but it is tasty and the variety is great. Breakfast too expensive . no bed clothes changing.
Comfort, service and luxury.
Overall experience. Great location Nothing
It is situated close to the Lake I had burned toast for breakfast, the staff is polite but that's it
Peace full and relaxing
Luxury- Location-TRUE 5 Star
The new rooms The bathroom layout The view Asian food selection at breakfast and Japanese restaurant The color scheme in the halls The Cafe experience is not consistent with the rest Presentation of Asian breakfast at buffet
I like very good hotel stuff, they gave a lot of attention to you and try to do the best during the time we spent there. I dont like that they block the money from my credit card more, than the price of room. Until today i dont have the money that they have to retern. It is not a good expierence to block the money in case off...
Close proximity to the IOC and olympic family colleagues
The hotel is so nice that it is very difficult to specify something. In general I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends as this place is absolutely beautiful.
Simply the best hotel on the lake leman. Exceptional, outstanding wonderful!!!
My 3 nights staying at Beau Rivage was wonderfull. I would never forget that. Its spactacular view on the lake, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, peace and comfort. In one word it was perfect. Although it is almost 45 minutes drive from Geneva, but for sure I would reserve the same hotel next time.
Fabulous helpful friendly staff Rooms verybuilding tired and hotel decor very stark for a belle epoque
Some of the staff were polite and used my name when serving me (example the room service team used my name when delivering my order) and I was escorted to my room by the reception Some of the service in the food and beverage areas of the hotel was very poor, and some of the staff were very cold when answering my questions. When I arrived at the hotel there was no one to greet me and help with my bags. Reception was confusing and under staffed.
view on the lake on the sixth floor the walls are not really sound proof...
the room space no balcony on the lake veiw side
chic, and comfortable the checkout counter charge 30 CHF parking fee per night, even we did not park any car for a night
Everything. Very luxurious. Spa was great. Room service was wonderful - my non-french speaking husband had ordered, so there were two mixups. We asked them to fix one and forget about the other, but they came back upstairs twice to take care of it, and didn't charge us for the forgotten dessert that they delivered to us anyway. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The internet was speedy and no problems connecting. All of the staff were courteous and friendly. We wish we could afford to stay there more often.
Everything: the staff was amazingly good and polite, the location was great,« the facilities were amazing! Nothing
very good no wire less
The staff was amazing!
The Spa and the customer service at the concierge desk
Friendliness of hotel staff despite being luxury hotel-
It was fine over The things that I didn't like were: 1) difficulties to communicate with staff in English 2) food service was slow and taste is just fair and limited menu options 3) value for money is not there as it's an expensive compare to other international hotels. ...
Friendlyness of staff Room very old fashion - needs renovation
Clean, good location Expensive, small rooms for a 4 stars hotel. First time i had to make a caution and give my amex number, The small things that usually are free in that kind of hotels you had to pay for them
Location is very convenient, staff are helpful and nice. This is a very old hotel. It needs a upgrade work on the rooms, things especially like beds, carpets, wall coverings and window covering. And it will help if it has a/C.
Great Location and very helpful and friendly staff.
room was welcoming, very clean lines and right across from station, hotel will give you a transport card which is great to visit the lakeside ouchy section...the reception and outside are standard, don't give indication of nice room/bathroom, reception gave me a converter which was fantastic as my converter didn't work in the swiss outlets expensive, breakfast included but nothing hot included in the spread and no internet access
Location Breakfast has a limited choice of menu
Friendly service in the breakfast buffet. The lady who served me was always friendly and very helpful. I arrived on 18th July, when the weather was extremely hot. I asked Reception if they had a fan, and they said the last one had been given to someone else. I had difficulty sleeping because the window did not open very far. I think it would be a great improvement to have air-conditioning in all rooms, as I understand from the Manager, that there are some rooms with air-conditioning. It would have been nice if the Receptionist could have tried to find me something with air-con.
Very close to train station. Windows didn't open very much which is important in June with no a/c.
It was very central and in close proximity to the Train Station Safe in room did not work and breakfast was a let down.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed the close proximity to the train station. There is a fee for connecting to the internet
We loved our stay at Continental Hotel Lausanne. The proximity to all forms of transport plus the free ticket given by the Hotel was so convenient. The view of the mountains from our room was just lovely. It was peaceful and yet it was in the hub! The breakfast was excellent with so many choices. The Staff were friendly and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable and as we were visiting family we will stay at this Hotel again. Perhaps tea/coffee facilities in the room!
The room was spacious and very tastefully decorated with a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The location was quite convenient to the train station as well. We were able to walk to the old town as well as the the lake.
Location was good. No air conditioning and leaving the window open was not an option because of the incredible noise all night!
A hall is not a living hall.
Very comfortable, friendly staff and good location being at the exit of the metro station and close walk to main attractions. Breakfast was expensive and hotel decor was a little dated. Was expecting more for the money I paid
Close to city center, and clean inside the Hotel.
Checking-in and out : quick and very efficient. Room: ok for the price - we are in Swiss after all. It's better to take a metro from the rail-station, because even if there is only a 10 min distance there is only up-hill, so if you have a big suitcase it's not recommended.
convenience to the cathedral, and shopping under the beds was not cleaned
great location, and great views of the city carpet was dirty, and many of the common areas were dirty too.
Location, relatively inexpensive The rooms desperately need to be remodeled, no breakfast incl., no free parking
Location and friendly staff was also quiet Poor bed position in room and no hot water jug for tea making
Modern style of this recently redesigned hotel. Excellent location, with a nice view on the cathedral (rooms with view slightly more expensive but worth the extra cost). Friendly staff. Free Web access only in the lobby. Bad accoustic isolation from the corridor.
The friendly staff Rooms facing the back and looking into other rooms. Had to keep the curtains drawn all the time
Room was very nice with an extraordinary view of the lake but I would say that the breakfast was no more than marginal. Service from the front desk to the bartenders was good with everyone being attentive to our needs.
nice room & bathroom - excellent reception service - excellent parking service in center of city breakfast was not really up to standard
the staf, location to the city center and shopping, big standar room with flat t.v, not bad bathroom, far from the lake (by walking), poor lobby.
Comfort and location
The staff at the reception are very professional, kind and welcoming. The old style of the hotel that is kept. It is very elegant and classy.
Hotel room (516/7) with balconies. Once we went down at 0955 for breakfast and one of the staff passed a comment even though there were still guests having breakfast. Otherwise the service was provided just as good.
The first week I had a comfortable room with a beautiful view on the Lake Leman. The second time I stayed there I had a stuffy room, while I paid a lot more than the week before. I asked for a better room twice, but was not helped so I moved to another hotel.
Very comfortable hotel with very obliging staff. Excellent views of city. Very accessable by metro to main sites.
The renovated room was superp. Spacious, comfortable, clean. Good breakfast.
Location was right on the lake and ferry's.
Great view to the Lake Geneva from some room
Friendly staff, excellent location and nice room Wireless internet was not free and there should be more English speaking TV channels
Location near the lake Room didnt have a balcony which was not stated previously and had a very small window,
Friendly staff Room was a bit small - no air conditioning (OK for the Fall, but could be tough in Summer). Problem with fire alarm system resulted in false alarm 06:30 one morning
friendly staff wifi was not free
The location was superb and the staff helpful, friendly and polite, The breakfast offered something for everyyone. Thefood in the evening was also good.
Location and bathroom Price
The way the hotel was up dated and the nice view from the balcony.
The hotel is nice. The price is okay. We didn't like the price for the breakfast (30 CHF). That's just to much when you had a big meal the night before and just want something rather small. Our stay was just one night and therefore we can't juge.
The beautiful room The restaurant was disappointing and the service in the bar very poor
The room was excellent, as well as hotel facilities.The food was good (we had breakfast).Everything is still new and clean since the hotel has been recently opened. The hotel spa (consists of dry and wet sauna only) is supposed to stay open between 07:00 am and 20:00 pm, but in fact the hotel staff was trying to prevent us from using it, and gave us a free entrance ticket to another hotel spa (which was 10 minutes drive!).We had an argument with the hotel staff and they finally let us in late in the evening.
the service was perfect, the food as well and i got a good upgrade of my room. so the holiday was perfect
The proximity to the lake, the food in the restaurant, the use of the Spa at the Palace
stunning hotel in a fantastic location, easy access to the metro expensive bar
The modern decoration is beautiful and looks happy
the location is really nice but definitely too expensive and the food at the hotel was poor the staff, even though nice, is not up to a 4 stars hotel. At the cost of the room, I would expect at least breakfast to be included.
the look of the room, the bed was very comfortable. the only English speaking entertainment channel was not working.the tv screen was a little too small to watch tv from bed - distance between bed & tv to great. would have been nice to have free wi-fi in room rather than not just cable connection
breakfast was very good and well organized. No tea or coffee making facilities in room.
Location and cleanliness The room and bathrooms are very small, although adequate for 2 people.
Good location, everything is clean, staff is nice nothing
the room was really clean. Very nice. the staff could be more customer focused. Checking in people could cut the queue, checking out the receptionist could be politer.
I felt the price for the quality was excellent at the Ibis. I did not like the lack of internet (minus one shared computer in the lobby with high costs to use). Also, the hotel had two of the reservations in our group down incorrectly. They were quite rude in the beginning as it was not our mistake as we had the booking.com confirmation listing the reservation as a double bed and a single bed, however, in their system it was listed as a double bed. In the end they sorted one room, however, we had to have one of our group book a single room in a separate hotel due to their mistake.
Only open a month, and still desperate to impress - so the staff were going all out. Obviously everything's brand-new, but there's a very high standard here that should continue to be met. Favourite thing - and an aspect that I really hope they continue - is that hotle guests get free, unlimited, public transport - essential when you're dealing with a city with such daunting gradients.
Brand New Hotel, very clean and confortable
this hotel is brand new so very clean and cheap.
No smoking, clean the room All right
Clean, comfortable, staff is multilingual. Overpriced breakfast, small fees for almost anything, that tend to add up: i.e. 2.5% city tax (not included in the booking.com price), no free wifi in the rooms but only in the lobby. One towel per person? I have never seen that in any class hotel before, anywhere in the world.
Convenient location close to rail station and reasonable price for quality of hotel. Room had balcony and partial view of the lake. Extremely comfortable bed and pillows. Bathroom was somewhat dated in appearance. Carpet likewise was somewhat worn out.
It is conveniently located in the middle of Lausanne with a bus stop on the corner and free bus pass provided for the duration of one's stay. It has the "feel" of a good, solid, French-Swiss, turn-of-the-twentieth century hotel. Some rooms have a view of the lake and the French Alps to the south.
Within walking distance of the train station. Free use of Metro and buses with hotel card. Free breakfast was very good. Nice size rooms and bathrooms. Free internet in rooms. Small elevator.
Professionalism and courtesy
It was good to have free internet access in the room. The hotel staffs were helpful and very kind. If you stay at the lake-side room, it would be wonderful but we still have a fine view from the balcony even of the room at the street side. The hotel is situated near the station and provided us the free traffic pass during our whole stay. The price sounds a little bit too high.
Nice atmosphere, great restaurant food and breakfast Balcony view onto construction site
Friendly staff, nice design, very good breakfast, clean rooms, restaurant. The metro station is pretty far
Its location The lift didn't work because some-one had not closed the door and the desk staff wouldn't investigate...I had to fix it myself.
The staff were lovely & very helpful, the room very clean & modern and the breakfast was absolutely superb!! We would definately stay here again.
Room was large, Internet (WLAN) connectivity excellent albeit expensive. Shower had abundant amounts of very hot water.
The quality of a well kept and well run small center city hotel with a fantastic breakfast. The bath towels were "thread bare" and were not in keeping with the first classness of the rest of the hotel
Pleasant standard hotel, well located near the train station. Beware if you try to get to the hotel by car, car access is quite difficult either via the Rue du Petit-Chene or via the Rue du Midi.
View from my bedroom of Lac Leman and Alps
The staff, the room, the location...everything was great, and breakfast was just lovely. And a special mention to the cleaning staff: I think our room was the cleanest one I've ever stayed in!
the location of the hotel was very good, staff were helpful and responsive.the room was small (as are most paris city rooms) but comfortable and clean. some street noise but generally good breakfast was not included in the price but available at a price. Most cafes do not open until 9.30am
Excellent location near the train station; very clean room; very good breakfast Room was small for the price; hotel was quite expensive
breakfast is good.hotel staff is helpfull.
Great location by the Train and Metro Station, yet in a quiet area of the city. Spacious, comfortable rooms. Buffet breakfast is not bad. Decent gym with basic machines on the ground floor. Staff is friendly and helpful. No major complaints, I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. Just one small suggestion to the hotel manager: redecorating the breakfast/ lounge area might give the hotel an even sleeker look (at the moment it looks somewhat dated and a bit too "busy" with all those different patterns and colours on the sofas, carpet, curtains, etc.)
Nice hotel with good urban traffic acces
Clean bathroom Clean room Locate near train and metro station Great artworks in the hotel Stain glass windows in the hotel Room temperature was warm.
the hotel staff was very friendly, the room comfortable and clean and very quiet despite the very central location of the hotel. I also enjoyed the buffet breakfast served in a very nice and tastefully designed room with comfortable sofas.
Efficiency at the front desk and a good breakfast buffet. Close to the railroad station. My room was rather small for what I paid for it.
Very nice building, opposite the station in Lausanne. Very convenient location. No bar or restaurant facilities - could possible have a deal/arrangement with another local or close establishment?
Very professionally run hotel with good facilities (free fast speed wifi, in-room trouser press, kettle with tea/coffee, iPod dock), friendly staff. Literally opposite Paddington Station, so very convenient to reach from within London and from Heathrow airport. Very small rooms
ambiance, style. fitness room, but did not get the chance to use it this time all good
friendly staff the hotel is expensive, so why annoy guests by not providing free WiFi
The room The style
Very conveniently located
La position centrale, la tranquillité. The location right in the city center and the quiteness.
Quiet room, near train station, metro and shops
The hotel's location is excellent, right in the city centre.
Bathroom is too small and no aeration, otherwise hotel is good..Breakfast is simply grate. Bathroom
Functional room. Very helpful and friendly staff -provided a fan for my room on request. Comfy bed. Well appointed and modern bathroom. Excellent location. Massively overpriced! I know Switzerland is expensive, but this hotel was double the price of any other hotel on my 10 day trip and was not twice as good - it was basically the same standard but for much more money.
Good central location. My room wasn't cleaned when I arrived around midnight; unmade bed, used towels. They moved me to a clean room in the morning (no staff on call that late) and didn't charge for that night. Otherwise it was fine.
Location Not well organised - my first room was not made and I was disturbed twice in my room (once by management, once by a cleaner)
Central to Lausanne; friendly; unobtrusive; informative, No
Room was spacious, modern and clean. Bathroom was very large. View was good. The breakfast was very good, and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It was close to the railway station, and in the old town. This was a great hotel No
The location and the room fittings.
Large room, great view The hotel charged the money on my credit card before I check out and after I check out, when I was already at home. They charged guarantee payment also and could not explain what guarantee fee is include
Our accommodations were excellent, and the included breakfast was especially delicious. We were thrilled to have a large bedroom and bathroom with air conditioning. No.
They were full so upgraded us to Beau Rivage, and put us up in a suite.Had a magnificent stay. We were also able to take a tour of the Angleterre which had lovely rooms as well. Marvelous hotel friendly staff , good service, nothing to complain about
The room was beautifully decorated in moder sober style. The staff was perfect. Sliding door of bathroom
The hotel is located on the lakeside in Ouchy what is just excellent. Also I liked my roon - it was big enough, you could even ride a bike there if you want to.
Chic Hotel. Large rooms with view on the lake Geneva. Excellent location in Ouchy in walking distance of IMD. Very nice and helpful personnel. Reception missed to inform that Internet wifi access was for free. In room explanation leads to a cable connexion but when opening your browser in the room Swisscom pops up and you have to pay CH25/day... I tried finally to connect by wifi and needed the assistance of the receptionist in my room to get connected. Total time to internet that evening 35minutes... Lightning in the room lacks to create a "warm" cosy light.
Excellent room - very spacious and clean - great views - good nights sleep - fantastic beds - great duvets Tea/coffee facilities in the room would have been really nice
Excellent service - including printing out menu's of local restaurants Lots of extra charges such as expensive wireless internet access, parking charges and breakfast not included (they could have at least provided coffee facilities!)
Nice view of the lake. No hairdryer, inconvenient for my wife after several days travel. Restaurants some distance away.
the view of the lake and the spaciousness of the room the decor of the common parts, very tired and cheerless
Stayed secondary to location as from room facing the lake had great view. Was just an overnight stay while in transit to another city so did not see much of the area but the lake view was worth the stop over. Was on the small size but comfortable.
Central location with good parking
Nice quiet hotel. The desk described a larger variety of meals available at the bar than was available. The hotel had a limited selection of restaurans nearby - Italian, Indian, and Malaysian.
I liked the view of the lake from my room. I thought the room surprisingly pleasant after the rather unpleasant common parts of the hotel. Decor of common parts very tired and unrestful to be in.
Close enough to town to walk in. Comfortable rooms, nice shower. Internet in rooms.
Excellent fitness center, perfectly clean and nice ! Unusual at this kind of hotel.... Rather poor phonic isolation
The Hotel location is perfect when visiting the EPFL and a walking distance from Ouchy where you can dine.
Wonderful staff, great neighborhood, rooms much better than expected! It was a very lovely stay All was wonderful
Quiet and comfortable hotel. Good value for the money. Nice view over the lake and mountain.
