Having a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Geneva is definitely a must. The location is perfect; very convenient to have the boat dock and info center right across the street. The Yvan and Gregorie, the two brothers who own this generational family-owned hotel, are so very hospitable; they make you feel like you are a visitor in their home. Yvan loves the US and talking with his guests; he even brought us glasses of a local rose wine and chips. We so enjoyed talking with him and hearing about history of this area. This is a charming, old building right on Grand Rue--what more could you ask for at this reasonable price. No air conditioning; there is a fan and nights were cool enough that we didn't need to have the windows open. Nice big shower with led-color lights--sure didn't expect this! Continental breakfast buffet; they cook whatever eggs, etc. you would like. Gregorie is the head chef, and we enjoyed talking with him the evening we had a delicious lake perch dinner. When we arrived, Dave was at the desk and was so helpful with maps, half-price passes, etc.
(TIP: Directions from train station to hotel: As you exit the train station, cross the street, turn left, go about one block (50 meters) to escalator going down to Grand Rue, the street along the lake; turn left, go half block to the hotel.)

Overall this was delicous, and I do regret not going there again or more than once.From here we went back to the hotel and spent time with our peers. Then went to bed to get ready for our last day in ...
Today we decided to take a day trip over the Switzerland. The mountains were calling me shall we say. It ended up being a 350km round trip with our little side steps along the way. We thought that it would be an open boarder into Switzerland like the one near Tirano, boy were we wrong! We were grilled by the Swiss Guard on the way in "what is the purpose of your travel into Switzerland " "where are you going" "how long are you staying" Then on the ...
... that had of course very strict policies on pictures and devices which you can definitely expect. After this we traveled on the tour bus to Vevey Switzerland which was a very enjoyable ride where we traveled along the coastline and saw great sights of vineyards, mountains and coastal waters. We then had an opportunity to get our own lunch and have time to explore a bit of this coastal town. A student and ...

Hikers: jump on the train on a weekend and you’re sure to come across people with their day-packs, walking sticks, and pants with zip-off legs. Off they go. Needless to say, most people seem pretty fit and well below the average North American BMI number.
Military: if you are riding the train home on a Friday afternoon, you’re sure to be sharing the train with many young men in fatigues, carrying their ...
The first thing that one notices about Lausanne is that it`s built on the side of a hill. A very long, steep hill. Most people I suspect take the bus up from Lake Geneva to the city, and walk, or ride their scooters, down. It`s fun to imagine the kids who zip past on their little razor scooters hitting a rock and totally bailing face first into the pavement. Not that I would wish that on anyone :) The reason I came here ...
