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

This very comfortable hotel is very much at the top end of 3 stars. Located at the Ouchy Port with lovely views over Lake Geneva, the rooms are very clean, well appointed and comfortable and the staff courteous. The metro which is free to tourists (you get a pass from the hotel) is 2 minutes walk away and you are... More

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
