I stayed for 5 days in July and I loved it. Check-in was very pleasant, quick and quite funny actually, because the staff didn't seem to be "stuck" behind a desk, but was actively walking towards us near the front door. The room was big enough and the bed really comfortable. The breakfast was my favorite, because of the waffles stations. You have to try it. Very well situated, close to everything you need and to the city center. I also received free transportation pass during my stay and some free or discounted entrances at several attractions.

We've been travelling through Europe for over 15 years now, visited dozens of Ibis hotels, and Ibis Lausanne is certainly one of the better ones! The rooms here are modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Sure, hotels in the more expensive category usually have bigger rooms than here, but we still had plenty of space for our luggage. Check-in was very pleasant and quite funny actually, because the staff didn't seem to be "stuck" behind a desk, but was actively walking towards us near the front door. We didn't try out the breakfast, because we discovered a fantastic bakery only a few minutes away from the hotel.

Good hotel in the center of Lausanne. Friendly staff and clean rooms! The towels are a bit thin but it is a budget hotel! Has a payed parking but it always has free space! Very well situated, close to everything you need! If you suddenly need to stay the night, I recommend this hotel! Easy check in and check out!

Stayed for 2 nights on July as part of a week trip to Switzerland. The hotel has good location near the old-street main attractions and restaurants: access to main train station is also easy with a very frequent and fast bus line. The staff is also welcoming and extremely nice. The room itself was clean and quite modern with decent bathroom. Unfortunately the night stay was not quite awful: the room's AC did not actually worked - It maid a lot of noise but did not actually cooled down the room. The result was a really non-ventilated and hot room. In addition the mattress was quite terrible - not really up to the ibis and accor hotels standards. Cannot really recommend this hotel.

Very well situated. Friendly staff and fast check-out and check-in. Nice breakfast. Comfortable, clean rooms. Elevators very fast. Would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Lausanne. Not really cheap but this is Switzerland.

Not much to talk about as it is just like another business hotel. Rooms are very small with 1 study table and chair. No electric kettles or iron board in the room but you can request them. Bathroom is also very small and cylindrical in shape, u can't even stretch your hands. Somehow all the IBIS hotels I have stayed so far have same cylindrical shape bathroom with same color layout, look and feel, such a bore. Reception area is just one round table with a laptop staff is really helpful and courteous so full marks to them. Bar area is pretty nice and offers both alcoholic as well as non alcoholic drinks along with munches. One nice thing I can talk about is that Bar area is open 24 hours. In terms of location, It is excellent. This hotel is at street corner with 2 walls each having a bus stop on either side! Lake Geneva is 10 minutes walk from here and Ouchy which is a good place for eating and restaurants is also nearby lake Geneva. Lausanne Gare train station between 8-10 minutes walk. Metro station is 33 to 4 minutes walking. Plenty of shops and French Restaurants around hotel. COOP departmental store for daily needs is also nearby. Overall big thumbs up for location but don't expect even small luxuries in this hotel. It is just basic.

What a shame. This hotel has an excellent location, the staff is friendly and helpful, but the room I stayed in was so polluted with smoke, that one night in that room was a nightmare awake. No amount of airing not even the intensive cleaning the staff did, could remove the stench. The first room I was given smelled somewhat of smoke, and I complained. I was immediately moved the the next room, which was much worse. My mistake was that I did not want to complain a 2nd time ^However, after one night there I left the hotel one day earlier. The manager offered to refund that night, which I think was really decent of him However: ibis is now a non-smoking hotel, and if rooms are contaminated, there is no excuse for renting them out. They should be closed to the public and sanitized completely. I know from the other people who were with me that their room was OK. However, the 2 rooms on the 4th floor that I saw were not.

For a business-meeting, I found this hotel Ideally located in central Lausanne: 500m from my appointment. It was a pleasant surprise: Very Friendly Staff, and free parking. I arrived very early (around 13:00, I think), but that was not a problem. I was more than welcome, and I could put my motorcycle safely in the basement-parking straight away. Parking was Free - always nice. The location of the hotel is Great: In the centre of Lausanne. Staff helped me settle in, I was able to have a snack from the bar, and could prepare my presentation for the next day on the well-functioning Wifi. Breakfast is Good, but can be a little busy: come early or be patient in the queue. Checkout was smooth, and because this is a very friendly hotel, I could leave my luggage in store, and the motorcycle could stay in the hotel-garage until the afternoon with no problem. I can Recommend this hotel, and hope to return when I come back to Lausanne.

The hotel is well located in Lausanne, very close to the centre and most animated part of the city, both day and night. Comfort is appropriate for this category and overall quality fits the price. The breakfast could be a bit enhanced with more fruits.

I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of April for 6 nights. After I made the reservation a read some comments here and was worried about the fact that most of the windows in hotel could not be opened, that room temperatures are high and that reception is being renovated. Eventually everything was completely different. Check in was quick, even though they did not have any room available with the opening windows, girl was very kind to offer me to change my room the day after. Having in mind that I feel claustrophobic in that kind of rooms, eventually I did not change it because the temperature was perfect. Rooms are clean, without any noise. Breakfast is very good. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
