The Beau-Rivage is a highly valued luxurious hotel to stay, relax and enjoy the views across the lake. It has a superb two Michelin star restaurant, a sushi restaurant, a brasserie and an extensive spa and wellness area. You can walk to the Olympic Museum in minutes, and the city center is only a few minutes away by metro. If you can splurge and prefer a lake side hotel, this is the place to be!
This hotel had to be included in our recommendations because of its unique appearance: this castle dates back to the 12th century and overlooks Lake Geneva. A wonderful location, just 5 minutes on foot from the Olympic Museum. It's easy to reach by public transport, as it is located right next to the metro station. The castle has an in-house restaurant and lounge bar.
Comfortable and modern hotel with a panoramic breakfast room on the top floor. The train station is close-by, but the hotel also has its own covered parking. There's a fitness room and sauna too. We think you will like the Swiss design of both the interior and exterior of this hotel!
We selected this excellent hotel because of its central location, good guest reviews and high comfort level (restaurant, bar, terrace, comfortable rooms and suites). It takes 60 seconds to walk over to the luxurious shopping street Rue De Bourg. The train station can be reached quickly as well. The hotel has various rooms that offer a view on the small park across the street (Promenade Derrière-Bourg) and Lake Geneva.
Narrow uphill streets are typical for the town center of Lausanne. This highly valued hotel is situated in one of those streets, the Rue Grand Saint-Jean, and is surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars and sights like the Palais de Rumine. The hotel was completely renovated in 2015. We recommend it if you prefer a lively location with everything you need at walking distance.
This is the most exclusive hotel in the city center of Lausanne. It was opened in 1915. The hotel has multiple excellent restaurants, bars, a terrace and an indoor pool. You can enjoy various wellness treatments. Many rooms are overlooking Lake Geneva. The excellent location enables you to visit all local attractions on foot.
A relatively affordable hotel on the lake, away from the busy city center. The hotel has a popular restaurant and is only one minute away from the lakeside pedestrian promenade, the metro station to reach the center of town, and the boat dock where the lake cruises start.
This is the budget accommodation we recommend in Lausanne. It is affordable, very close to the train station and at walking distance from the city center.
The Elite is located between the train station and town center. Both are just minutes on foot. There are restaurants, shops and cafés all around. The hotel has its own garden. The rooms at the top floor have lake view.
Small affordable hotel in the center of Lausanne. The museums of the Palais de Rumine and the historical town center are just a few minutes on foot.
