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...

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...

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)...

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...

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...

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...

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

I stayed at this hotel late September. The room was perfect for my needs. Clean, quiet and comfortable. I had a room on the top floor with a lovely view of the lake. The staff spoke perfect English and were helpful & friendly. Breakfast and wi-fi were included in my room rate of 160 CHF per night. Breakfast was very...

Hotel du Port has very good location near the port. In the morning, during breakfast you can take a fresh breath because restaurant is opened to the port. Hotel is located at the street full of other hotels and restaurants where you can spend your spare time. If you arrive to the airport in Geneve (my case) you can take...
