Movenpick Hotel Lausanne

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I remembered the Mövenpick as a nice hotel from past visits that date back 5 years and more. This stay was different. Staff is nice enough and check-in was speedy and without any problems. Hotel room was very dated and carpet used and needs to be replaced. This whole floor seems very old and used. Location is great, nothing changed there. Breakfast was below average compared to other international chains. Pancakes are not worth the sin and the coffee is served from a fully automatic machine. Ok but certainly nothing special. Dinner was ok. The burgers were average, the shrimp salad too and the caesers salad with chicken was ok too. Simply too many ok's for what we expected. Next time in Lausanne I certainly will chose another hotel, pay a bit more and get away from all the average experiences found at the Mövenpick.

We reserved a standard room with view on the lake, taking advantage of a promotion 4 months ago. The room given to us on the 2nd floor had clearly been occupied by a heavy smoker so we requested a change, which was done without problem. Spacious and well appointed room, typical of business hotels, with a great view over the lake. Quiet in spite of the noisy avenue below. Location is ideal for tourists in Ouchy. Parking is offered for 35CHF/day with a limited number of parking spaces. Desk recommended that we park in the municipal parking across the street which is much more convenient and cheaper (18CHF/day). Breakfast is also fairly expensive by international standards, but there are very nice and cheap alternatives not far from the hotel. Only negative is the non stopping flow of buses and the ensuing traffic around and in the hotel.

The staff was so polite and friendly. The hotel bar was so nice , facing the lake. So you can see the panoramic view of the lake. The room was ok but the most cutest thing was .. a little bar of movenpick chocolate as a warm welcome sms ☺️

A portion of the hotel was under reservation at the time of my stay, however, this work did not cause any major issues or disruptions. The front desk and housekeeping staff members were all helpful and timely in their responses to requests. They were also friendly. The room had a view of the lake and was comfortable.

Our family had a nice stroll on the quay after supper and decided to stop to Movenpick restaurant for dessert. 5 staffs seemed not to be in a hurry to serve us. A bit offended, my daughter went directly to a waiter who wasn't too hurry acknowledging our presence, I decided not to spend my money there. We walked out of the restaurant. Staffs are rude and seemed to be of their habits of snubbing on customers as other reviewers. Spend your money where you are welcome. Movenpick hotel nor restaurant will never get a dime from us again. Except 1 in Zurich by the Operahaus, excellent waiting staff.

The biggest advantage of Movenpick Hotel Lausanne is its location at the Lake Geneva. Walking / jogging pathways are are just nearby. Also bistros and restaurants. Beautiful view of Alps surrounding the lake magnifies a pleasant impression. The initial welcome is very warm with personal, hand signed note from Hotel Manager. Rooms are very clean and quiet. Rich selection of food for breakfast (as for the Swiss hotels standard). Well equipped gym serves well fitness people :-) Nice supportive personnel. taxis are arriving instantly. You feel taken care of. Overall, very pleasant stay. The place rather for adult couples and groups than for families with children.

very engaged team, always kind and helpful. I hope the next time I'm in Lausanne or any other place where Movenpick is available to have the option to be your guest again. Keep up with the good job, great to be with you.

The hotel, although on a busy road, has great views of the lake. There is room to sit comfortably outside while enjoying an evening drink with friends. The new rooms are well designed and comfortable. I found the standard pillows did not suit me but alternatives are available including an ergonomic one which was perfect. The staff where really lovely. Cheerful, helpful, invisible when appropriate, but enjoyed a conversation when initiated. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in an area close to everything. 5 minutes walk from the metro, 10 mins from the train station... Big diversity of restaurants and stores close to the hotel. The room is very comfortable and has a nice view to the lake.

Friednly staff and great location for both business and leisure trips, right next to the lake. Good equipment in the gym but air con didnt work last week and was too hot to workout in there. The quality of food is usually great, although I did not experiece that last week when I stayed for 3.5 days.
