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.
Big modern room No King Size bed
Great location, very very spacious rooms, good breakfast buffet, friendly and professional stuff
The comfort of the room, the services and the bathroom.
Location Beds an pillows are unconfortable
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,
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.
good and beautiful 'Modern Art' Hotel extra charges for everything (e.g. SAT-TV, breakfast, etc) reduces value for money drastically
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.
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 was right on the lake and ferry's.
Great view to the Lake Geneva from some room
Location near the lake Room didnt have a balcony which was not stated previously and had a very small window,
Friendly staff, excellent location and nice room Wireless internet was not free and there should be more English speaking TV channels
Location and bathroom Price
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
Excellent, friendly service, good atmosphere and a great location down by the lake. A good quality well priced restaurant (taking account of Swiss prices and the weak pound).
Excellent breakfast, very nice and polite staff both in the hotel and in the restaurant, my room had a very nice view of the like. The cleaning staff was a slightly bit too eager to clean my room on the morning of the departure - they knocked on my door twice (different people). They did apologize profusely, though.
This is a great hotel. It's a three stars, but I'd give it more than that! The location is superb. just next to you is the extravagant Hotel Beau rivage with probably triple the price... but if you get a lake view room at this hotel, you're not missing out on anything. A bit noisy if you have to leave the windows open.
Location is good - at Ouchy, just near the lake. It is near to Ouchy metro station. Room is quite spacious. The facilities can be improved: 1. No slippers provided. 2. In bathroom, same liquid is for soap and shampoo. 3. Breadfast is very basic and with few choices - only 3 types of bread, 3 types of cereals, 2 types of juices: orange, grapefruit. The quality is excellent but really have too few choices.
The rooms are not big but big enough. The rooms feel newly furbished and are very clean. The breakfast is also not big but all you need is there. Very nice staff. It's a bit noisy towards the inner side with all the delivery trucks. I missed a gym.
It feels more like home than hotel. Cosy and elegant decor, clean and quiet. Good size room, comfortable bed. Very nice and helpful staff. Excellent restaurant, great cuisine. Although room service works good I was missing tea making facility in my room.
Location, attention to detail and a lot of personal touch. It was my birthday, and the owner prepared a little present in the room.
Helpful staff. We needed help to find a pharmacist late one evening and the receptionist was very helpful, calling a taxi and providing a map.
This is a well maintained and clean boutique hotel. I really enjoyed my stay there.
The staff was very accommodating providing assistance with luggage, maps, a small refrigerator for the room given to us because they saw we had some cheese on the desk. The buffet breakfast was very good and service was good in the restaurant. We had a very pleasant stay -- everything was great!
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.
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!
convenient & quiet
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.
Location is excellent. A little disappointment regarding the breakfast and the food at the dinner.
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.
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.
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
well decorated, efficient. clean The majority of staff is competent, with few notable exceptions at the reception.
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
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.
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
near the station far from the lake
Location is great, close to train station and metro Beware of the floor. The 2nd is like a basement. Staff is not friendly.
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
Covenient, quiet, comfortable and clean. Excellent for an overnight stay on business. Nothing to report
the excellent service, the entire staff were wonderful. the owners were just fantastic and very helpful. whenever we needed any advice it was always there for us. i strongly reccommend hotel regina. the location is also fantastic.
location, helpfulness of owner a little difficult to find
just nice and easy
Comfort and convenience: 200 metres from the excellent Lausanne Metro.
Hotel was very friendly, clean , bedroom nice and bright- breakfast very fresh. Staff very helpful.
hot water in the shower of room 56 was not steady.
Pillows were too hard.
The location and the free wireless access. Very difficult to reach the hotel, if you are by car you need to get full instructions how to reach the hotel. The hotel staff was not friendly with the exception of one receptionist that was working at around lunch time to afternoon, she was very kind. Our room was located to the street and it was noisy at night because of a restaurant close to the hotel. Small room.
Breakfast No parking available, even though on web it did claim to have it. Smell in the room. Third bed was really of poor qulaity.
Very helpful staff. Good value for money in an expensive city.
Location, relatively inexpensive The rooms desperately need to be remodeled, no breakfast incl., no free parking
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.
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
Location and friendly staff was also quiet Poor bed position in room and no hot water jug for tea making
Close to city center, and clean inside the Hotel.
A hall is not a living hall.
great location, and great views of the city carpet was dirty, and many of the common areas were dirty too.
Location was good. No air conditioning and leaving the window open was not an option because of the incredible noise all night!
convenience to the cathedral, and shopping under the beds was not cleaned
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.
A lovely place and an excellent restaurant
Very friendly and 'homelike'. Very good restaurant .Excellent situation and easy if you have a car but also train service.
Spotlessly clean, good food, excellent attentive staff, no request to much trouble actions carried out very fast. Swiss hotels are expensive this was value for money based on the swiss market The decor is 1980's browns in the bathrooms, the hotel owner has ambitious plan to renovate
The hotel is conveniently situated in a beautiful country village, Lausanne, outside of but still close to Lausanne,and with amenities like transport and a supermarket close by. It gave us the opportunity to hike in the countryside, and to easily get to Lausanne by means of the local train. The hotel itself is professionally run, with well-trained and staff. The room was spacious and clean.
Very friendly helpful staff. Nice restaurant. Quiet location. Rooms very old looking - ceiling is some sort of blanket (it ripples when you touch it). Beds are not great.
Very quite situation No pay-TV (movies)
Very small room
good location the Food was awful
Staff were very helpful. Location was excellent.First Class hotel. The room was rather small.
perfect location, next to metrostation, only a few minutes from city centre
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?).
The excellent location right next to the Metro stop and its charming rooms offer a very good value for the money
nicely decorated the room is extremely small roadworks in city centre and the hotel is difficult to be reached
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.
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.
Very friendly personal, both night and day shifts. Rooms clean and confortable. Good breakfast. Good value overall.
the breakfast was good, the room quiet and the ticket for bus offered by the hotel was very useful
Hotel is located in a good place near a big shopping center. Parking is free. Breakfast is fine.
restaurant: service meet not the expectation
I liked this hotel because it was clean , quiet , close to the highway ... good for my purpose ; I was just passing through Switzerland . One small problem with the fact that I did not knew that the hotel was renovating the reception room . I would have apreciated if I would have been informed about that . The hotel stuff was pretty ok . internet gratuit
nice and simple hotel. basic facilities, nice breakfast and good restaurant. underground parking. wireless internet access is not free.
perfectly located, nice staff, anytime again
It was comfortable and staff was friendly. Corridors were a bit smelly though. Corridors were smelly
it's very good position to make a trip a way to lake , Montreux or anader places...
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..
Fish restaurant at the entrance Service at the cafe
there are wonderful staffs and very helpful. it is easy to go every where
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.
Good service from reception staff. Poor value for money.
Location Food is terrible and very expensive. Only the Icecream is good.
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.
Real friendly and helpful front desk.
It's location, the view and the comfort. Nothing.
Location Clean room was not very good
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.
ideal location for congress at the beaulieu center. quick check-in and check-out. friendliness nothing
Booked this hotel for my parents, both over 70, who stayed there for 8 nights. Staff was friendly, some spoke German, and they were always very helpful.
Convenient room, good bed, and very good breakfast
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel was a good standard - the room was comfortable. Nothing
Comfortable bed, good breakfast, friendly and helpfull staff, and free access to internet. The hotel is a little too far away from the train station
The athmosphere was like at home. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Everything was perfect,
The staff were all very friendly and efficient. No air conditioning.
kind staff / good located to the congress center / good hotel parking
Underground car park Room was rather airless
Spacious family room, good parking facilities, not too far from the center of Lausanne. Lovely view. Noisy road. Breakfast too expensive. Bathroom and kitchenette need renovation.
Nice location with a view over the lake, on a crossroads in a village. Very convenient for motorway and easy to find. Room not enormous but practical, clean and comfortable. Popular restaurant and terrace on site. Staff helpful and pleasant. No lift. Seemed quite expensive but the exchange rate on the Swiss Franc was not good for us at the time
Home style quiet cozy place with good food. Good hospitality. Nice view of Lake Geneva. Conveniently located nearby bus station. Free parking. Free acess to wireless internet. Limited area for wireless internet access. Lack of electric outlets in the room (difficulties in recharging laptop, cell phone, camera, etc.)
Very very expensive and very,very poor quality. did not like the fact there was no kettle for tea/coffee nor water available to drink.
Our stay here was one of the highlights of our trip round Europe. The views from the hotel are stunning and although not in Lausanne itself it is close enough. The hotel staff were excellent and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The food at the hotel is absolutely something else (in a good way of course). In whole there was nothing that we didn't like about this hotel.
We enjoyed the stay in the very beautiful suite (room 11). Good facilities and decoration. Hotel has a nice restaurant. We could hear the noise from the street when car pass by. Curtain is too transparent, it would good if there is another layer.
Size of room, price, good views from balcony, croissants were excellent balcony was very small, location is a bit out of the way, definitely need a car
Great food in the restaurant. Good accomodation for families.
Close to Lausanne. Had open space for walking nearby--we travel with dogs. Dog found empty shampoo bottle under the bed.
It's not advisable if you don't have a car. But, if you have one it will be easy to get to the city and enjoy the quite and beatiful scence from the hotel. Location
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.
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
Great Location and very helpful and friendly staff.
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.
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.
Location Breakfast has a limited choice of menu
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!
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
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
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.
Bathroom is too small and no aeration, otherwise hotel is good..Breakfast is simply grate. Bathroom
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)
Quiet room, near train station, metro and shops
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
La position centrale, la tranquillité. The location right in the city center and the quiteness.
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.
The hotel's location is excellent, right in the city centre.
Central to Lausanne; friendly; unobtrusive; informative, No
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.
Central location with good parking
Close enough to town to walk in. Comfortable rooms, nice shower. Internet in rooms.
Nice view of the lake. No hairdryer, inconvenient for my wife after several days travel. Restaurants some distance away.
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
Excellent fitness center, perfectly clean and nice ! Unusual at this kind of hotel.... Rather poor phonic isolation
Quiet and comfortable hotel. Good value for the money. Nice view over the lake and mountain.
the view of the lake and the spaciousness of the room the decor of the common parts, very tired and cheerless
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.
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.
Breakfast is fantastic. Be ready for a noisy night. I slept with earplugs and was fine, but my traveling companion had real problems with the trains coming and going all night.
Everything is perfect.Next to railway station, clean room, and nice reception.
The best thing about this hotel was the location and the cleaniness.The breakfast was very good and the staff helpful.
Its location, so near to the train station... yet... ...yet its location is also a handicap when you are given a room with direct view to the train station platforms (and all the noise it implies). Plus, as spmebody already mentioned, the hotel is under some maintainance work, so not a really cosy place to stay. Room is ridiculously small for the price they charge (I've been in maaaany hotels in Lausanne nearby, and this is by far the worst experience I've had). Oh... and beware, they insisted and charged me for a phone call I did not make!!!!!!. Personally, I'll only come back there if it was my last resort. I hope the reforms they're making will change it for better...
The location was very good and convenient to transportation and shopping. As stated in other reviews, the rooms/bathrooms were very small, but they were clean and fine, since I didn't spend a lot of time in it.
Room too noisy, felt like I slept on the railway tracks. Hotel last renovated in the 70ies.
Breakfast was rich and the stuff was helpful and friendly
The position of the Hotel is really easy, near the station and the downtown. It's a quite hotel.
Great staff, very helpful. Excellent location near the train station. A little pricey.
Peace full and relaxing
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
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.
