Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely hotel, situated conveniently just 5 min walk away from the lake and a bus stop into the city center - hotel provides free transportation ticket! Rooms are updated and clean. Staff is super friendly all you need is ask. We asked for extra pillows, boom extra pillows in the room :-) Breakfast is simply, but plentiful. Have stayed before and will stay again.

This was a wonderful large room for a city centre hotel. There is car parking on site. The reception staff were incredibly helpful and when we had a problem were very efficient in helping to address it. Very clean and comfortable and an excellent breakfast. Also easy with our dog, which is unusual for city stays - grass and easy walking behind the hotel. Lift right by the doors. Excellent.

The room at this hotel was very good. Large enough to have two suitcases open on the floor, good bath room and shower and a most comfortable bed / pillows. Kettle and safe available in room. There was also a bar fridge and two complimentary bottles of water ~ unfortunately our fridge would not cool. Good free WIFI. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Good English spoken at the front desk. Hotel has a lift. No aircon. Windows in room and bathroom opens but quite loud traffic noise in our room facing the main street. Buffet breakfast is from 7.00a.m. and has quite a good selection of breads and cereals.

Arrived at 11:30am the recetionnist only said "you are too soon, the hotel is full".
We asked if we may use a bathroom which she accepted telling us to go upstair. We noticed a room (N°106) is done, the door open. Coming back at the hotel later on, we discovered our room N°....106!.
Also we had to ask if the hotel was delivereing free public transport ticket othwrwise it would'nt have been offered.
First hotel impression for a 3☆: very poor.
Room: the shower is extremely narrow, we cannot put our 2 foot together and extremely sleepy and dangerous too!

We stayed 2 nights here. The hotel is well situated with a 15 mins walk to Ouchy or centre area. There is a car park and the hotel also gave us a free public transport card which was nice.

The rooms are clean but can be noisy. There is little noise isolation and there were some works outside that started quite early every morning.

I understand it is Switerland, but the hotel still seemed expensive for what you get. Also be careful that Tripadvisor shows free parking but you actually need to pay.

It's well worth spending more on a room overlooking the lake. Very nice view, and very quiet. Breakfast seems expensive(15 Swiss francs each) However many hotels offer 'free' breakfast and end up charging more than the Bellerive. You won't save very much by eating locally. So breakfast was more than adequate with good unlimited coffee. The hotel provides free vouchers for transport all over Lausanne. Turn left leaving the hotel and on the same side 100 metres away is the bus stop for routes 1 and 25. 1 takes you to the centre and Lausanne station in 10 minutes. There are couple of useful stops on 25. Again about 10 minutes takes you to the Olympic Museum Before that the stop Dapples is right by the Botanical gardens Both worth a visit. In town the excellent metro system is easy (and free of course) to navigate. The hotel's location is quiet and away from the bustle of the centre.

We reserved a lake view room at the Bellerive. You can sort of see Lake Geneva but a lot of buildings obscure the view. To get to the lake there is a long hike or a combined bus/metro ride, but you get a free transit ticket while you stay there. Bus #1 goes past the hotel and gets you to the city center in about 15 minutes. We got a lake view room above the hotel bar - big mistake. There was loud conversation from the bar during the early evening and our room filled with the smell of something like frying bacon in the morning, most likely from the bar's kitchen. Even though our room faced away from the busy Avenue de Cour the traffic noise was a problem. The room itself was clean and had a very spacious bathroom. There was a safe and all the standard amenities. The television received only two English language channels. The buffet breakfast included a good variety of items including yogurts, cereals, dried fruit and nuts, jams, meats, and very fresh baked goods. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Overall the hotel seemed pricey for what was offered and the noise was troublesome. We most likely will stay somewhere else in Laussane in the future.

We stayed at Hotel Bellerive for two nights. The rooms were very small, but modern, and the staff was friendly. The Breakfast was tasty, but they offered just a small range of different products. The Hotel has a spa and a turkish bath and they offer free parking areas. You will find two supermarkets, a bakery, a pharmacy, and a couple of restaurants nearby. The chinese restaurant across the street is good, but too expensive for chinese food.
The worst thing was that the walls are not very thick and you could hear people talking in the next room. That was really disturbing.
Overall, I do not think that the hotel is worth 105 Euros per double room per night.

Basic hotel with parking in the back, small but comfortable rooms, basic breakfast. Hotel is nothing more than just to have a sleep for a night. All in prefect order but a bit outdated. Internet did not work.

My wife and I stayed at the Bellerive for three nights in early September. We'd rather stupidly arranged to arrive in Lausanne on the last day of the city's triathlon, so accommodation was hard to find. The Bellerive, however, was a very pleasant surprise in what I'd feared would have been a packed city.

The hotel itself is in a non-descript part of town, and you'll want to use the bus if arriving by train. That said, without luggage it's a pleasant walk to the Délices metro station, or of course there's always the bus back to the station. The metro connects the old town with the port of Ouchy, although the fitter guests may be happy to do the whole thing by foot.

Being a bit out of the action, the hotel is much quieter than many others. Our room overlooked the lake, which meant that any traffic noise was further reduced. Thick walls tended to reduce noise from our neighbours, too.

Breakfast is available both in hot and Continental forms, although I never tried the hot options (they didn't seem to be replaced as frequently as the breads, cheeses, fruits, and so on). It's definitely possible to set yourself up for a day of sightseeing with the spread available. There's a bar on site if you feel the need for a drink in the evening, and the hotel has a list of recommended restaurants in the neighbourhood, which is always welcome.

Guests are given the "Lausanne Card", which gives free public transport, as well as some discounts on admission to places. We didn't realise that the Olympic Museum was one which attracted the discount, but apparently it does.
In an expensive part of an expensive country, discounts and freebies are never a bad thing!

The only negatives I can point to were that the shower screen in our room was hinged and had a tendency to swing wildly if you tried to fold it out. As a result, trying to avoid wetting the bathroom floor actually resulted in the floor getting wetter!
Additionally, despite a notice outlining the usual "towels on the rail means don't change them" and recommending that we turn the lights and TV off when we leave, the housekeeping staff tended to leave the lights on after they'd serviced the room. A minor quibble, of course, but if we're all meant to be being environmental, we should all do the same things.
