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

In Montreux for just one night, looking for somewhere convenient for the rail station, saw this place online and didn't have terribly high expectations, but ended up very happy with it. The only place we stayed that didn't include breakfast but that worked to our advantage, Bought local croissants and coffee from the cafe downstairs, sat on our balcony and... More

We stayed here one night in June. That was enough. All of Montreux is pretty pricey, but even so, I didn't think it was worth the rates. It's a big, old hotel with rooms that are a little shabby and could use some upgrading. They have free wifi but they charge quite a lot extra for breakfast. And I don't... More

Four of us stayed here in June. Good location, about a 5 minute walk from the train station. Close to the lake and the Casino. Nice staff, excellent English. Very helpful in accommodating our needs. Clean, basic rooms. Would stay again.

I have to admit, i was suprised reading some of the recent reviews about tired looking decor. Having just returned from Montreux, and a one night stay at this hotel, I couldn't disagree more. The twin room we stayed in (Room 251) was actually really nice. Modern bathroom with twin headed walk in shower, lovely spacious room with wooden floor... More

We had a really nice room. Its a great position. A view of the lake and mountains. Great king size bed. Helpful staff. Its just opposite the casino. I really recommend it. It can be a bit hard to find in that the numbers of rue casino stop and start over. Make sure you print out a map.
