The Top 10 of the latest hotels is not always visible from the outside. Lausanne is a traditional city dating from the 12th century in the center of town. You will not see a lot of contemporary avant-garde designed hotel buildings. However, that does not mean that there are not contemporary interior designs and very high-tech hospitality facilities in Lausanne. Au contraire
Lausanne's Palace hotels, The Lausanne Palace and the Beau Rivage, "Top" of the Top 10, have gone under major renovations and now offer superb interiors with a harmonious but eclectic mixture of Swiss traditional and contemporary which is reflected in the guest rooms as well as the public outlets that cater to both hotel guests as well as locals. Both new spas are very popular with the "Lausannoise".
The Chateau d'Ouchy, a reconstructed medieval castle hotel has re-opened completely renovated in a mix of the ancient and the modern. This has become THE place for local politicians to meet in the new very contemporary restaurant starring Chef Edgard Bovier. Those of us less political meet for fun at the atmospheric bar and vinothèque
with a nice warm fireplace so appreciated after a chilly and brisk walk along the lake paths just outside the entrance.
The Top 10 of the latest hotels in Lausanne are not only in the luxury market. Accor has recently opened 2 of the best latest hotels in Lausanne in their moderate Ibis Hotels. Ibis Lausanne Centre Hotel is convenient although the Ibis Crissier is nice if you're driving through Lausanne.
