Located in the port area across the street from Lake Geneva. Close to the metro, boat rides, the International Olympic Museum, a grocery store, bakeries, restaurants, and beautiful strolls along the lake. If you're struggling to choose between the Old Town and the Port area, go for the port. In the Old Town and immediate surrounding areas we ran into... More

Nice location. 15 minutes metro ride to the city center. The hotel seems to run around the restaurant. I didn't actually get to eat there, but it was always full of people, so rather popular. The bedroom was OK, good space, two twin beds put side by side, so they tend to separate, a bit on the old side, good... More

This hotel is on the lake and competitively priced. This location however has it's pros and cons. The cons first...since the lake is one of the main attractions in the area, the road on which the hotel is located can be extremely busy, especially on the weekends. Also the hotel is in a busy area which can be noisy. The... More

We spent one night in Lausanne and wished we would have stayed longer. Our room was spacious and clean with a very nice bathroom. Our room overlooked Lake Geneva and the promenade. What a great location! It was an easy walk from the railroad station to the metro and then to the hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful.... More

The location is perfect. Close to the metro and lake. Close to an abundance of restaurants and shops. Stayed is a front-side room with a view of the lake. That being said the hotel itself is average at best. No air conditioning and poor knowledge at the front desk to start with. The young man at the front desk told... More

Hotel had a renovation recently, so the rooms are nice and clean. Back side rooms are nicer. Years ago, I have stayed in this hotel in a front-side room and it was not so nice. This time, had a back-side room, very nice. Breakfast is basic, but very good. Location is great, just by the water and 2-3 minutes walk... More

The location of the Hotel du Port is absolutely ideal. Close to the lake and promenades, a short walk from the Metro and buses, and lots of restaurants nearby. From the moment we walked into the hotel we felt comfortable and 'at home'. Our reception was warm, efficient and very informative and helpful. We had chosen not to pay extra... More

I was visiting a friend in Lausanne and instead of catching the train back to Italy after dinner, decided to stay in a local hotel for the night. My trip apparently coincided with the Geneva Motor Show, so hotels in Lausanne were charging around 400CHF per night which is about €340 or US$500 - for a normal hotel room. I... More

Hotel Du Port was a good choice for us. Location is very near the metro station and had fantastic views of the lake and the mountains. It's a quaint hotel with small rooms. Breakfast was good and wifi signal was strong in all areas of the hotel. The elevator was small just like most European hotels. Hotel gave us free... More

My wife & I spent 3 nights at the Du Port. The Hotel is excellent and great value for money given its location, ambiance, facilities etc. We had a room at the front overlooking the Lake and it was terrific, a decent size, very clean and comfortable. Although the windows do open, in hot weather I can imagine the room... More
