I'll start by saying that the staff at Hotel Helvetie are great. Always smiling, great service was had by them. Unfortunately, this is where the positive part ends. Hotel Helvetie is a very old and tired hotel. You can tell from the moment you step into the lobby. The room we were given didn't match the photos that were sent... More

We had a nice stay at Helvetie for 2 nights while visiting the Christmas Markets, which I highly recommend. The hotel is perfectly located in front of the Casino, just a few minutes walk to the Freddy Mercury Statue, and approx. 10min walk to the rail station. Very friendly and helpful staff. The 19th century Hotel is well maintained, although... More

We were coming from the Montreux train station and had some difficulty in locating the hotel building as the signage was not obvious. Thankfully we met a hotel staff along the way who gladly showed us the way. The walk took us about 15 minutes probably because we had bags with us. Check in was smooth and staff were courteous...

This hotel was hard to find - we knew where it was but coming from the train station we walked right past it. There was a sign that could have been seen if we were walking in the opposite direction. But once we were in we were well taken care of. Our small group appreciated the meeting space near the... More

We really liked the place from the first look. An 19th century hotel, meant for senior army men, kept its grandeur intact, even the lift. The room,really spacious, and the balcony opens to the lake and snow capped hills. Both the gentlemen at the reception put their full effort to help and look after the guest proactively. The breakfast spread... More

If you had Room 236 in 1971 you could have seen the smoke on the water from the balcony. This hotel is tired. Its spaces are large and not comfortable. The carpet could do with a clean but may not survive it. The staff are pleasantly efficient and breakfast was enough to keep us going but nothing exciting. However the... More

This hotel is a bit older, but has been adequateley renovated. The room was very clean and rather big. The best thing about the hotel is its location close to the lake and als not far from the Old Town. The staff was very friendly.

The hotels location was excellent- it took only 10 mins to walk from railway station. The hotel room we had overlooked the casino and the lake. The only trouble with a good location though is that you compromise on other things. The hotel is desperate for a makeover. The room was very clean but outdated and very quirky with lots... More

Just a short taxi ride from the rail station on the main road through Montreux. The stairway to reception was impressive, the reception / lounge area was impressive, the lift from the early 1900's was impressive. Stepping out of the lift on the first floor was more than a step back in time. I have to say that leaving aside... More
