The hotel is situated overlooking Lake Geneva. It is a small boutique hotel ideal for exploring the lovely city of Lausanne. Being close to the funicular railway station makes for easy access to the city centre and mainline train station, with trains to and from the airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable and of a good size. Breakfast is... More

Great location, friendly staff and clean, comfortable room. We had the budget room which did not have a view but it was comfortable and the lakeside location was great. The beds were firm and comfortable, we had very good night sleep every night. The bathroom was small but had everything we needed, including hair dryer, soap and shampoos. Tv was... More

Lovely welcome by the staff. Room was fantastic, spacious and had a lake view. Cafés, bus and train stop just around the corner. Serviced everyday. Very quiet. Nice Thai Restaurant around the corner and El Blanco pub was great across the road from it. Meals at the pub were great. Also meals and breakfast at Hotel du Port were lovely.... More

In Lausanne the link between a sky high price and luxury is not guaranteed neither does budget mean down market. If you're looking to wake up with a view of lake Geneva and to eat in a first-rate restaurant without taking out a second mortgage then look no further than the Hotel du Port. This family-run hotel is small but... More

This small hotel is well located in Ouchy, close to the metro station and within easy walking distance of the Olympic museum. Front rooms offer lake views out over the hotel restaurant below, but the busy street between the hotel and the lake presents a dilemma for summer travelers, with sound insulated windows but no air conditioning. Rates are comparatively... More

The room is nice and the window looked directly at the lake hence the view is outstanding; As a 3 star hotel, i do not find it accettable not to... More

The location is fantastic, right on the edge of the lake, close to the metro station which takes you quickly to the train station. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large modern bathroom. Parking garage was a short distance away but is not free. Stopping outside the hotel is virtually impossible to offload luggage. Dinner was expensive but... More

We found this hotel to be just OK. There is no air conditioning and it was very warm when we were there. We had to leave our windows open and found it noisy to sleep since the hotel sits right on a busy street. However the prices are good given the high cost of everything else.

The room was large and comfortable with good beds and good pillows. The breakfast was good. The location was very good: near the waterfront, 10 minute walk to the Olympic park and 10 minute metro ride to the Old Town (you even get a free metro card from the hotel). My only problem with the hotel was that it was... More
