Reception was nice & you can reach in front of hotel from railway station through tram 201(walk down the escalator across the road ) or 206(longer time).Not advisable to walk as summer temperature was too high there. Breakfast at the terrrace was nice but it was cold buffet. My family didnt like the hotel as it is hertage type and... More

Worn out hotel which I imagine was once very elegant. Needs a total redo-carpet, paint, bathrooms, furniture. Rooms are musty smelling and mine had mold/water stain on the ceiling. Positive-new, comfy mattresses, helpful staff and good breakfast buffet. The location was just a block from the lake.

I have stayed in Montreux before, at one of the more exclusive hotels on the lake and was very disappointed by the experience. However, my stay at the hotel Helvetie restored my faith in Swiss customer service. Ok, I'll admit that the hotel is perhaps a little dated, and there is no real lake view-I positioned myself on a verandah... More

On the positive side the Hotel is close to most things that tourist need/like such as the railway station, Lake Geneva, and of course the restaurants. The continental breakfast is probably what you would expect at a 3 star hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly. With an old hotel such this you tend to expect the rooms to vary in... More

About the good things, the staff is very friendly and the beds very comfy. Hopefully, the shabby chic maybe getting cool in some years from now. Been there for the festival, the rooms were far overpriced for what you get, it's rather 2star than 3. My room was clean, but with the outdated look the furniture felt somewhat dirty -... More

We stayed at the hotel after travelling from England by train. We were pleasantly surprised as the staff were very helpful and welcoming and the room was very comfortable and just what we needed after a long day travelling. It is only 10mins walk from the train station and only 5 mins from Lake Geneva. The location is fantastic. We... More

So, all the other reviews are spot on: great location, no AC but fan, construction under way, outdated rooms/bathrooms. I laughed when I got to my room and the walls were totally banged and scuffed, just like the reviews said! But, the bed was newish, comfortable, with good pillows and fresh sheets. Can't really ask for more during the week... More

We stayed one night while traveling by train from Venice to London. We walked to the hotel from the train station. Not too bad because it was downhill, but we took a taxi back in the morning because of the luggage. The lobby elevator was blocked off because of renovations being done at street level. Many stairs to climb, but... More

The Hotel is in major need of a serious and thorough upgrade. Our room was very small, worn with chipped paint,tired furniture and decor,a bathroom that looked like an 1880's original,only two power points and a general feeling of drab decay. After 2 nights we asked the desk to confirm that this was the Junior Suite we had booked, and... More

We stayed for one night whilst on our way back to the UK by train. 10-15 minute walk from the main railway station but we took a taxi with our luggage. Central location and close to the lake and promenade. Helpful staff. Looked a bit old fashioned at first sight but 4th floor bedroom at the front was comfortable with... More
