Reviewed 7 June 2013

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 I booked, which turned out to be nice to have all of that space to myself. It was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and overall, it's a quiet hotel which makes for a quiet sleep. The only problem sleeping at night was the zero ventilation in the room and the fact that I like my curtains shut at night didn't exactly help any air circulation with the windows. So I found it rather hot to sleep (may be even worse on a hot summer's night). But breakfast was great with lots of choice and it was a beautiful morning so it was nice to have the patio doors open in the dining area. I still enjoyed my stay despite the stuffy sleep and would consider staying here again anyway.

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 third floor was amazing. Ate at there restaurant and the quality was very good. Breakfast included every morning was above average.

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 Lausanne. It was lovely to sit having a meal overlooking the lake. We had requested a quiet room and although it didn't have a lake view it was very peaceful.

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 good with many choices (not just cereal, bread & juice) and you could eat out on the terrace if you wanted to. Compared to the other major hotel chains in this area, this was a steal! There is noise on the street until about 11pm and then it calms down. Upon check in, you are given a transit pass which will take you up the hill and into the town center as many times as you want to go. The metro couldn't be easier to navigate and Lausanne is small enough to walk around and enjoy. There are many dining options (budget & high-end) in the upper town. For great burgers & fries, eat at Holy Cow. If you'd like to take a boat ride, there is a ferry across the street which will take you across the lake to the village of Evian (40 minute trip). I would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Lausanne.

Room Tip: If you are a very light sleeper, bring earplugs and ask for a room that does not face the street.

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 a train and go to Lausanne. In Lausanne- Gary take a metro and go to Ouchy station and you are there - 100m and you are in the Hotel du Port. When you are looking from the hotel you can see the port and beautiful mountains in the background. Stunning!

Receptionist has a great sense of humour and can inform you on all important news. Very kind and opened.

Room Tip: If you want to have promotion as an IMD Candidate then contact them before booking the room

Nestled between the big boys (Angleterre, Chateau d'Ouchy and the Beau Rivage) this family run hotel and restaurant is a real gem.
Wonderful view across the lake for a very sensible price. Comfortable rooms with friendly service and a warm welcome.
Try the set menues at their harbour front restaurant. Great value for money and delicious choices.
A real secret tip in Lausanne
