The Hotel Du Port, located in the lakeside Ouchy area of Lausanne provides nice accommodations at a fairly reasonable price. The area surrounding the hotel is quite expensive due its resort status. The Beau Rivage stands guard next door, keeping prices high and the clientele exclusive. Unfortunately the location is not overly convenient as a trip on a bus is necessary to reach the old town and the main rail station. (The Metro, a light rail system is currently under construction, the bus is its temporary replacement.) Excluding Lake Geneva across the street, the only "attraction" nearby is the Olympic Museum, which is a must see.

The rooms in the hotel are well appointment with rich wood covering the closet area, the bathrooms are moderately sized with good water pressure. The decorating is crisp with rich drapery and softer than usual carpet. The property was kept very clean and the staff was helpful. The attached restaurant is acceptable, albeit expensive.

Great family run hotel by the lake, better than it looked on the website. Took our 4 month old son and hotel was very accomodating. All staff we encountered were very friendly and willing to let us attempt some French. Opted for a lake view room which had amazing views and was spotlessly clean. There were some great looking restaurants along the waterfront, worth visiting Restaurant de la Croix d'Ouchy on Avenue d'Ouchy which is about a 10 minute walk up the hill towards the town centre - great homecooked Italian food (doesn't look much from the outside). Would definately recommend the hotel, the only downside is the 20 minute walk up hill to the town centre but there are plenty of buses if you fancy the easy option.

We have just returned from Lausanne having stayed 5 nights at the Du Port. As other reviewers have said there is road noise if you have a Lake view room but the views more than compensate. The hotel is a nice size, rooms are well furnished and looked after. The restaurant is very popular with tourists & locals the food is good & very well presented, with the option to eat on the terrace as well. All the staff were friendly & helpful. The breakfast was buffet style & well presented with what you would expect in Switzerland.
The location in Ouchy means you have to use the bus into the centre currently there are 2 services as the Metro is undergoing renovation. The bus service is very frequent & reliable & is only a few minutes to either the station or the town centre. Would definatley stay here again.

We were finding it difficult to find a decent hotel at a decent price when we came across this hotel via Lausanne Tourism. Previous reviewers influenced our decision and we were very pleased with the location and price. It was good value for money in an expensive city. Would highly recommend it for convenience of finding it, its handy locality to trolley buses into the city, view and boat trips on the lake.

The hotel is a street front hotel, with stunning views across lake Geneva. The only disadvantage to this is the fact that it has no parking, so you have to use the multistorey carpark 200 metres away.

The hotel has a friendly receptionist, and the lake view rooms are very spacious, modern and clean. The bathrooms, are also spotless and airy.

The only problem we had with the hotel is the fact that when eating the breakfast in the morning, the bufffet breakfast was uncovered. The birds seems to be flying aroudn the resteraunt and landing on the tables, chairs and near the food. We we're concerned about the hygiene of the food.

However, this was just a small problem, and we would still thoroughly recommend this hotel. It seemed to be popular with travelling business men.
