“Excellent if not driving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Our room was lovely, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was good. Location excellent. Service was helpful and friendly. Wi-fi was free and strong. Nice view out over the lake.

Our one caveat is that we arrived by car. You have to pull up on the sidewalk and quickly unload your bags. There were 3 of us, so I could leave the others while I went and parked. Parking is bit far and in a big, confusing underground garage. But this was our only complaint.

Room Tip: The higher the quieter.

At 200 CHF for a double room Hotel du Port seems cheap by Swiss standards, however behind the 3 star rating is a well run, small hotel with great attention to detail and great location opposite the lake at Ouchy. The welcome was warm and efficient, the room was very clean and well appointed (although the bathroom was slightly dated) with a good view over the lake. Continental breakfast is included in the price. A free travel pass issued by the hotel allows easy access to the centre of Laussane (up the hill) via the metro station 5 mins walk away. Although there's no parking at the hotel a smart, manned, underground car park is 5-10mins away, costing 18 CHF per day.
We had an enjoyable overnight stay here and would recommend Hotel du Port to friends and family without doubt.

The welcome we received was warm. The hotel was absolutely clean. We had booked a lake view room. The room was large, the bathroom was also large, perhaps not the most modern you would ever find but comfort is the most important thing for me. Maybe the heating was a little too warm but there's a tap on the radiator and the windows open!

We eat dinner in the restaurant, an excellent meal with plenty of staff. The continental bkfst included was great. We took lunch there as well. All first class.

One could see into the kitchen from time to time and it appeared modern. I will always go there if I have to visit Lausanne.

The hotel is situated in a beautiful location overlooking the lake. There is a comfortable, relaxed air to the hotel. The staff are charming and extremely helpful. The restaurant is excellent and used by many locals as well as guests. Always a good sign.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

rooms were clean, breakfast included in our rate was quite good. location is across street from waterfront and near Olympic museum. no AC meant that we needed to keep the windows open and the street traffic and waterfront park noise made sleeping difficult.
hotel fronts directly onto sidewalk and street. there is no way to pull in for unloading luggage from a car. parking is available for about 20CHF/day at an underground garage about two blocks away. if you arrange through hotel at check-in, there is a discount and you can get in-out privileges.

Room Tip: rooms on front have view but noisy if windows are open.
