First impression upon walking into the hotel is very positive. Large lobby and gorgeous little antique wooden lift. The room we stayed in was large and had a view of the lake. Bed was comfortable. Due to the age of the building and size of our room I think the heating system is not optimum. I didn't sleep well because... More

Hotel is defiantly might be considered as one of the affordable places to stay in city centre in walking distance from all attractions. Room was good - clean and quite with nice bed; personal friendly;Internet connection quite good. The only inconvenience is the parking which is not available on site.

The hotel was very nicely situated 2 minutes from Casino and a short walk to the waterside. The Christmas markets along the way was very nice. Breakfast buffet was also very nice, at CHR 12, that's very reasonable by Swiss standards. But no hot food though, just cheeses, breads, yogurts, cold meats and fruits. The best part was the room....

We were only here for 2 nights and and as other reviewers have said the place is old and needs work. Old school charm and spacious rooms are ok to a point but in this day and age I think that travellers deserve better for the money. I also agree about other peoples comments about breakfast being somewhat poor. I... More

We stayed for one night. Quite enough. I like quirky and quaint, old fashioned and traditional hotels. I am less keen on hotels where the shower doesn't work, the electrics look dangerous, the TV is at right angles to any sensible viewing angle and where the breakfast is meagre. We were on the 3rd and 4th floors and used the... More

The hotel is historic and has its own charme. It is located in the middle of Montreux and has a nice platform on top of the hotel. However the rooms need to be renovated as everything is old, especially the shower. In our room we cound`t close one window completely.

Although it takes about 15 mim from the station on foot, I think it's situated at a good location..close to the lake, casino, supermarket and so on. Just in case, you might feel hard to reach the hotel from the station when you have a heavy luggage. Because there are uphill & downhill footpaths. Besides this, it's all good. The... More

A reasonable hotel with old-world charm. The location allowed easy exploration of the area. It was very close to the Casino and lakeside. The breakfast was excellent with the usual choice from a continental breakfast. A ten minute walk to the train station.

was the hotel with my wife and her parents. Nice cozy atmosphere. Nice rooms, some technical curiosities from the Industrial Revolution but we stay here. Breakfast could be much better for the price. Nicely located by the Lake.

Before traveling to Montreux, I read so many reviews here about this being a not very convenient place to stay. Well, MY experience was just great! People at the desk were so kind and they speak various languages which was very relaxing since I don´t speak French. My room had everything I needed: great beds, great pillows, it wasn´t noisy...
