I like this little hotel, wonderfully situated near to the Metro, overlooking the lake. The staff are pleasant, the breakfast is good, the rooms comfortable, and the price a good deal more modest than the more splendid places nearby. True, there is one waiter who strikes me as a rather odd duck, but everyone else has been well up to...

The hotel is situated overlooking Lake Geneva. It is a small boutique hotel ideal for exploring the lovely city of Lausanne. Being close to the funicular railway station makes for easy access to the city centre and mainline train station, with trains to and from the airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable and of a good size. Breakfast is...

Great location, friendly staff and clean, comfortable room. We had the budget room which did not have a view but it was comfortable and the lakeside location was great. The beds were firm and comfortable, we had very good night sleep every night. The bathroom was small but had everything we needed, including hair dryer, soap and shampoos. Tv was...

Lovely welcome by the staff. Room was fantastic, spacious and had a lake view. Cafés, bus and train stop just around the corner. Serviced everyday. Very quiet. Nice Thai Restaurant around the corner and El Blanco pub was great across the road from it. Meals at the pub were great. Also meals and breakfast at Hotel du Port were lovely....

In Lausanne the link between a sky high price and luxury is not guaranteed neither does budget mean down market. If you're looking to wake up with a view of lake Geneva and to eat in a first-rate restaurant without taking out a second mortgage then look no further than the Hotel du Port. This family-run hotel is small but...

This small hotel is well located in Ouchy, close to the metro station and within easy walking distance of the Olympic museum. Front rooms offer lake views out over the hotel restaurant below, but the busy street between the hotel and the lake presents a dilemma for summer travelers, with sound insulated windows but no air conditioning. Rates are comparatively...

Looking for a place to stay in Lausanne, we found this hotel. There was only a room left and that was a suite. Being 3 people we accepted the 'offer'. The room is nice and the window looked directly at the lake hence the view is outstanding; As a 3 star hotel, i do not find it accettable not to...

The location is fantastic, right on the edge of the lake, close to the metro station which takes you quickly to the train station. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large modern bathroom. Parking garage was a short distance away but is not free. Stopping outside the hotel is virtually impossible to offload luggage. Dinner was expensive but...

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.
