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

It is very clean and tidy. It is in a nice location. The staff are all very polite and pleasant. The food is very competent, but not exciting. I just couldn't help feeling it was rather lacking in soul. Utilitarian...

I stayed here only one night before I moved across the street to the Chateau d'Ouchy as I was waiting for members of my family to join me there the following day. This is a very decent option for Lausanne, although I got a city view (rear facing) room which meant lots of parking noise (from the hotel next door)... More

I can only base this review on a one night stay in Lausanne, but from this one night, I can say it was a great stay. The hotel is located right by the lake and very close to public transport. Even better on a nice day to get around Lausanne walking. There was only non-lake facing double rooms left when... More

Great location, 2 blocks from M2 and 100 yards from the boats. We took one to Chillion castle. Magnificent. The rooms are spacious and have a great view of the French Alps and Lake Geneva. Originally booked castle d Ouchy but it was too overpriced for the quality. This was a gem to find and our junior suite on the... More

We only had one night at this hotel, but it was perfect for our needs. We travelled by train and it was a very short walk to the metro and then only a few hundred metres from the station at Ouchy. A free metro card, given by the hotel, meant that it was easy to get in and out of... More

Very good location, right in front of lake Geneva, and very welle connected (2 minutes from the subway station). Nothing fancy in the decoration but the room was very clean and quiet, even though it faced the street. Very kind sevice. Nice breakfast
