We asked for a lake view room and the view was certainly fantastic - a really beautiful setting. The room itself was pretty basically furrnished, although very clean. What is it with the twin bed thing? Food in the restaurant was excellent, although service was a bit hit-and-miss - had to wait half an hour to order dessert. Thought Ouchy... More

We asked for, and got, a room with lake view (for a surcharge), which was certainly pleasant and we actually spent a bit of time gazing out the window. The ferries across the lake leave from this point and it's a 5-10 minute walk to reach them. The area is sort of holiday-ish but the metro into town (free for... More

The Nicolier family made our stay at this gem of a B&B that much more enjoyable. For Switzerland, the hotel is a good value. It is on the lovely Ouchy waterfront and an easy walk to Lausanne proper. Or, the Nicoliers give each guest a free travel pass for your stay, which includes the very easy to use Lausanne metro... More

This is a charming hotel that I, my daughter & 5 year old granddaughter loved! It is on the street in Ouchy that goes right along the lake and is directly across from many of the ferries & boats. The metro station is about a half a block from the hotel( a level walk for those with a suitcase) &... More

Overall I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel du Port. Lausanne is in a great spot on Lake Geneva and it's just a quick train ride to get to Geneva. The room was very clean and modern looking. The bed was very comfy and hard to get out of in the morning. Breakfast was really good with quite a... More

The Hotel du Port is located on the shore of Lake Geneva, near the base of the shuttle railway leading up into the center of Lausanne (10 minute trip). A pass for the train is provided free by the hotel at check-in, making it convenient for city business even though it is located outside the core. The hotel has a... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful location over road from lake. Quality furnishings, large bedrooms, lake front rooms had great views and other rooms looked over rear car park but still OK, not noisy. Bathroom good, beds very comfortable. Family run hotel with warm welcoming atmosphere, excellent restaurant in hotel with lake views, very good food.

We stayed here for 2 nights in August 2008. The hotel is in a great location, right on the lakeside, with stunning views. It is really convenient for public transport and the boats on Lake Geneva. Ouchy waterfornt is a great spot - lovely promenades and public squares with a great atmosphere and a range of cafes and restaurants. The... More

The Hotel Du Port, located in the lakeside Ouchy area of Lausanne provides nice accommodations at a fairly reasonable price. The area surrounding the hotel is quite expensive due its resort status. The Beau Rivage stands guard next door, keeping prices high and the clientele exclusive. Unfortunately the location is not overly convenient as a trip on a bus is... More

Great family run hotel by the lake, better than it looked on the website. Took our 4 month old son and hotel was very accomodating. All staff we encountered were very friendly and willing to let us attempt some French. Opted for a lake view room which had amazing views and was spotlessly clean. There were some great looking restaurants... More
