Never seen before on Secret Escapes
A charming and unique hotel sitting against a forested backdrop, not far from the vast waters of Lake Geneva - includes breakfast, chocolates and a travel card
- Re-inventing the wheel for hotels (so to speak), Hôtel des Inventions celebrates Switzerland’s finest inventions all under one roof. From props such as a solar boat and a conching machine to inspirational quotes from Swiss inventors, you might even feel your inner-creativity soar as you settle in.
- Chef Francesco welcomes you to dine at the hotel’s restaurant, to a menu of Sicilian-inspired cuisine and wines from the local region. The “winter garden” conservatory is a stylish place to enjoy dinner, with monochrome décor and pops of colour to bring the space up-to-date.
- Guest rooms here are bright and cosy, with pine furnishings and bold colours contrasting against cream carpets and white linens. In contrast, the bathrooms are strikingly modern, with some of the rooms come with a bath as well as shower.
- Complimentary Lausanne public transport card
- Electric car charging station

Hôtel des Inventions is roughly 60 kilometres from Geneva International Airport. It takes about 45 minutes to drive, or you can catch a train from the airport to Rehens VD, then a bus to Ecublens VD, Parc - from there, the hotel is a two-minute walk.
