Recent guest reviews

Well maintained hotel. Clean room. Reasonably quiet given proximity to main roads. Convenient for city centre. Bus pass provided was very useful. Close to some good restaurants. Useful bar in hotel. We would not hesitate to return.

The hotel is nice both in terms of money and the central location. It is a budget hotel with all the basic needs and the restaurant is really nice. The menu is limited however, the dishes they offer are good.

My friend and I stayed here just before New Years, and found it a pleasant stay. The staff are amazing and very helpful, and spent lots of time showing us where to go not just in Lausanne, but to towns around Lausanne and gave us advice as to the best tours and travel options, all of which were brilliant. The hotel itself was nice, very clean, it does however smell a little like smoke in the corridors and the lack of power points in the room is annoying, we had only one in our room and it was not near the mirror or bed. Other than that it is a good central location and a nice place to stay.

Found room on the internet the night before. Ibis hotel rooms always nice and clean and the staff friendly. It always makes your stay pleasant when staff are helpful. Price reasonable as was the parking.

Stayed with my partner as we were visiting family who live in Morges and we wanted to explore Lausanne for a few days. The room was very large. We didn’t have breakfast on property and really only used it to sleep, after full days of sightseeing. The hotel is located on top of a hill, it is close to the main train station, and has a number of useful bus routes on its doorstep.

Actually, it was a last minute choice, and it was Ok. We are lucky to found the very kind receptionist, from Cyprus, so we spoke in our languagge ( greek) and she hepled us to found nice places to visit in the city. The room was small, with NO WINDOW. There was no bad smell to be honest, but still, the feeling of fresh air was missing. There was only one towel per person, only one soap for everything , secured on the wall, and this seems so... unfriendly to me! The breakfast is basic , but the qualiuty was good. Bus station very close to the hotel. Just for 2 days is O.K. !!

I sayed one night at this hotel and I must say that the quality was quite poor for about CHF 100 a night. In the room it smelt like the previous guest had smoked in the room. For me, non-smoker, a really bad experience. On the top of that, both soap dispensers in the room were empty. Far from the usual swiss quality and standards at this price level.

The room is neat and clean, furnishings were new and there is ample supply of hot water. The TV has many channels catering to guests speaking different languages. What I like most was the CNBC and the programme reception for almost all channels was excellent unlike most other hotels. The staff were friendly and gave us directions to some nice restaurants nearby, Brasserie Saint Laurent (See my review). It is a good hotel for family or business. Being located in the Old Town of Lausanne, the location is within walking distances to Lausanne-Flon and others.

Stayed here in December for a two night break with my partner.We had the large disabled room,basic clean and good value.Would be nice touch to add tea and coffee in the room us Brits like our teas.But overall it was good location would recommend if in Switzerland on a budget.

On arriving reception was busy so we had to wait for a while but the receptionist was very courteous and helpful. The room was comfy and very clean. The bathroom was excellent, only two towels, but you could ask for extra towels and there was plenty of hot water for showering. Location was excellent and the free transport card was handy. Very nice cake and coffee shop just around the corner. We were on the top floor so did not hear any noise. Very nice staff. Would recommend.
