Review of Hotel du Port
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jun 2019
We had planned a trip to Evians Les Bain, so arrived late morning. Early check in was accepted no problem. Unfortunately weather very poor so abandoned the idea, instead wandered around Lausanne.

Hotel gives free travel pass for are so useful for nearby metro up into old town. This hotel has quality decor inc fixtures dating from the 70's, so not modern. But as with most Swiss hotels, spotlessly clean.

We had a 'suite' overlooking the lake. We wanted to swop things around, the sitting are was away from the windows, the bed near it.

There was a kettle in the room, useful, but replacement consumables at a charge. A bit mean we thought...but then, most hotels dont provide anything, so perhaps a little unfair.

We had stayed the previous night in Montreux at the lakeside Rene Capt hotel. The price was about the same, but the quality of the room, breakfast was definitely better value there.

Nice views over the lake from this small comfortable hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Very clean and good sized rooms. Would have been an excellent except for two things. Every time you enter the hotel it smells of smoke because of people smoking outside the entrance - very unpleasant and not a good advert. Second thing was difficulty in adjusting room temperature. Could not find any controls. Shame about the two smalk issues. Otherwise very nice.

I stayed in a lake-view room for one night in mid-May. The hotel is very easy to reach from the train station, being only a few mins walk from the metro station. The reception area is pleasant and easy to access and the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a twin lake-view room and it was very pleasant. It is a three-star hotel so don’t expect the height of luxury, but the room was clean, bright and airy, had good storage space and coffee-making facilities, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and perfectly functional.
The view from the room was absolutely wonderful and the proximity to the lakeside and port allowed some great walks around this beautiful area. I will be very happy to return the next time I am in Lausanne.

We had a lake view room. We did keep our windows open. There was some street noise but not bad. We enjoyed the view and fresh breeze. Hotel is small and comfortable. Excellent location. not far from the train station maybe 4 minutes. Down the street from the Olympic Museum. little restaurants just downstairs along the waterfront.

Reviewed 28 October 2018

This is a small hotel with a restaurant situated along a road which runs alongside Lake Geneva. A modest entrance leads into a corridor/reception desk. Our room on the third floor looked out onto rooftops at the side of the hotel but by leaning out and looking left the lake was just about visible. A smallish room with two single beds together with wardrobe, safe, tea/coffee, no air-con but a large fan. A shower cubicle and a hair-dryer with nozzle (good) was in the ensuite together with some toiletries.
It was nice to have breakfast in the restaurant with the locals and to look at the lake under a blue sky. There was a reasonable amount of food items but nothing was labelled. Parking is further along the front, L turn into the underground car-park. Park right at the end and you come out via some stairs and a lift on the other side of the Chateau d'Ouchy, which is almost opposite the hotel. The hotel was Good rather than Very Good but it had a good atmosphere and pleasant staff.
If we came again I would ask for a larger room at the front.
