Loved waking up to a view of Lake Geneva and the mountains every morning and then walking along the beautiful promenade at night. Room was good size, clean and comfortable with lots of storage space. TV had some English-speaking channels which was nice! Room was surprisngly quiet given its location, although we did sleep with the windows closed. Very convenient... More

I have stayed here on several occasions when visiting for meetings and find the staff to be welcoming, friendly and attentive. The rooms at the front of the hotel have stunning views which I never go tired of.

The location is right on the lake about two blocks from the metro stop. Rooms in the older section are small but manageable. Bathroom is compact, efficient with a great shower. The restaurant on premises has an outdoor area and is usually packed--the food is good. Spotless, good staff. Excellent value.

We stayed in a three-person room facing the lake. We had warm weather, but not hot, so we were able to sleep comfortably with the windows closed, which blocked out the bulk of the road noise (with the windows open, the street noise was considerable). The views were amazing! The location is about a block from the Ouchy metro station,... More

This is the second time I've stayed at Hotel du Port. The first time I had a double room, this time just a single. The double was very nice, the single definitely smaller and tighter. However, get a room with a lake view and the room size doesn't matter. Love the view! It's also very convenient - just take the... More

I didnt stayed at the hotel but used the restaurant for lunch. The dishes were wonderful together with a local wine. I would recommend the restaurant and the midi menu to everyone because it worths the money which is reasonable to the switzerland standarts.

Somewhat impersonal, predictable, but tidy, clean western rooms that want for nothing. The location of this accommodation is hard to beat, opposite the lake, surrounded by cafes, restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, gardens, public transport and everything you could need. The centre of town and the station is just a short distance away but id choose this for the lake front any... More

Clean and well appointed rooms, friendly staff. Front faces the lake and busy outdoor dining spaces. Thinking that the front rooms might be noisy, we booked a room in back but with window open, heard noise of deliveries and garbage pick up. Minor annoyance. Nice restaurant at the hotel. Beautiful setting.

We had a a little confusion before traveling about the specific dates; the hotel staff were really professional & very good about changing our dates, confirming it & still providing 2 rooms with views. The rooms were great. The hotel staff are very professional & the service was highly efficient and friendly. Be very careful however if you need an... More
