Reviewed 4 June 2013

I spent 1 night at the Hotel Bellerive on my way through Switzerland. We must've been upgraded (maybe it was a slow night?) because our room (502) had the most stunning view of the lake which I'm pretty sure I didn't book because Switzerland is already $$$ on it's own! Breakfast was included in our rate and parking & wifi were free of charge (also things I had a hard time finding in other Swiss hotels).

I really enjoyed the breakfast they offered. One of the better ones I've been experienced on our travels through Europe (especially given that it was included). There was a 'boil your own eggs' station (LOVED), a good selection of meats, cheeses breads and fruits. For drinks, I helped myself to the self-serve espresso machine (a few times...) and there was a nice tea selection as well.

Room Tip: Room 502 - Big bed and stunning lake views! Nice bathtub/shower combo too.

We stayed one night here in June. We took a lake view room and had a corner room with two mini-balconies and great views of the lake and mountains behind. The room was modern and clean. The bathroom was huge (though not so modern) with another mini-balcony. The breakfast (included in the price we payed) was good and varried. The hotel was extremely easy to reach from the motorway and parking is free. The only drawback was the location out of the centre; they do provide you with a free bus/metro pass when you check in, which helps.

Room Tip: pay for the lake view

Lovely hotel rooms spacious and very nicely laid out and we had an end room so two balconies overlooking the road and from the side you could see the lake.Only about 20 mins walk from the lake and all the bars and restaurants.Very nice breakfast in the morning ,Staff very friendly parking down the side of the hotel.We stayed on a Sunday night and the restaurant was closed that night.

Room Tip: The end room had two balconies and was very spacious

We stayed one night for the Geneva Motor Show and this hotel was very good! Unless the city view wasn't very a city... The breakfast is simple but good. There is aldo a free parking just behind the hotel...I would recommend it!

Belle Rive is 15 minutes walk from Lausanne Gare and the city centre (or by bus no1), and half the price of many larger hotels. Rooms are clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making in the room and a minibar, and free wifi. Beds firm but comfortable, though with the usual inadequate pillows you find in every Swiss and German hotel. Bathrooms with bath and shower over, and the bath is actually big enoguh to use. Cable TV has many foreign channels, including Duna TV, good for Hungarians and all the main UK stations. About 5 minutes walk to the lake shore, and the lake view rooms have great scenery outside. Most rooms have a small balcony.

Room Tip: There are 7 rooms on each floor; 3 face the road and 4 the lake. For example- on the 3rd floor 301...

We were lucky to stay in suite 507 of this cosy hotel. The whole hotel is being renovated and therefore our room just looked splendid. Nicely furnished, very clean, spacious, stylish use of colors. The bed slept excellent, good pillows, reading lights which don't bother your partner and the view we had on the lake was very nice. Big bathroom plus: Enough possibilities to hang your towels and put your bathing stuff. Separate toilet.
The breakfast offers everything you need: Fresh juices, coffees, eggs, cereals, cheese, ham, croissants, different types of bread. There is a cosy sauna-gym area if you feel like having a work-out session. There are enough ways to explore the city by public transportation starting close to the hotel. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We so enjoyed our stay!!

Room Tip: Suite 507!
