Hotel du Port in located in the Ouchy area of Lausanne. This area is by the water. The hotel is easily reached from the metro. It is about 1 block walking distance. If arriving by train just take the metro across the street from the train station to the Ouchy Olympic stop. The hotel provides a transportation pass for the...

Location is perfect and you can witnesss spectacular views, sunrise and sunset few meters from the hotel. Since we stayed out whole day we took the room without view and I was happy as room with lake view too might not have much to offer. There is no balcony and the hotel is a little bit further from lake for...

Hotel has no parking. So you have to park your car where it says you can't to unload your cases in front of the hotel before checking in to get a voucher for the underground public car park situated a few minutes walk away. Check in- the staff were pleasant. Rooms- Finding your room was fun the first time as...

We did not stay in this hotel but we did pop in for a drink whilst walking around lake Geneva, the views are spectacular, and its a fantastic place to people watch. The service is great and whilst the drinks are a little bit more expensive than the UK, you expect to pay a premium for the view. I would...

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...

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,...

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...
