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...

Travelers nowadays are spoiled rotten. Every hotel is expected to offer designer rooms, top notch everything, but of course only at rock bottom prices. How refreshing, then, to come across an ancient, much loved, dogeared old barn like the Helvetie to remind us all that in days gone by a bathroom in every room was not common, that all the... More

We were staying for one night as part of a trip across Switzerland by rail. Our room was a double aspect room overlooking the Casino, Lake Geneva and to the Alps. The room was dated, but clean and tidy. However the bathroom was less appealing. Very old and tired and with a whiff of the drains !!!! This hotel is... More
