The hotel were not like amazing like a 5 star or even a 4 star....but I must say it was something different. French windows and balcony, church on the side, the view outside. It was just something different from the usual. Plus you have a bus stop right in front of it to move around

The location is great, very large lobby, with large windows in the sitting area. The room needs a much needed paint job. Many marks on the walls and scattered water stains. But, very clean. Staff were very friendly. The breakfast buffet is adequate. A typical European buffet.

The room was a bit shabby in desperate need of a paint job. Water stains in the ceiling and one of the light fixtures. Huge rooms though with a very comfortable bed. Despite the shabby appearance of the room and the hallways, it was very clean. The staff were great with a native English speaker (Canadian I think) working at... More

Amazing location, reasonably priced hotel. Reached late in the evening, and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the old age charm that it had. Went to the casino which is opposite the hotel & had a good walk before hitting the bed. The walkway by the lake was amazing, went out again early in the morning.... More

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.
