Great location 5 minute walk from train station, 1 minute to casino, 5 minutes to lake and Freddie mercury statue. Nice terrace on our room, can see some mountains but mostly obscured by other buildings. This is an old building and some of it does look tired but comfortable, massive beds, good shower, fabulous location and reasonable rates for this... More

Hotel Helvetie is a 5-10 minute walk from the Montreux train station. Descend from train station level to the next street below, and turn left. Pass the square with the Freddie Mercury statue, and walk a few more minutes and it will be on your left with a coffee shop on the first floor. The reception staff was very friendly,... More

we stayed in the above hotel for 2 nights, and whilst as mentioned it was a little tired looking and somewhat in need of a facelift, in every other way it met all our requirements. Our family room was lovely, as instead of a large room with 2 large beds, we actually had 2 rooms and a separate sink outside... More

Excellent Victorian Hotel with friendly staff. Facility is good for family & honeymooners - No disturbance & Complete privacy. Very reasonably priced & ideally located (10 mtr away from the bus stop)for visitors of any kind! Many restaurants around to choose - Italian, Swiss, Chinese etc etc.

This hotel is very old and very tired. The rooms are very big and comfortable beds. The staff are not very helpful - they are not rude though. We stayed over Christmas and not one of the staff wished us merry christmas. Rather disappointing considering we stayed 3 nights. Nothing was put on and breakfast was nothing different - this...

Stayed at The Helvetie Hotel for two nights while attending the opening of Queen the Studio Experience at the casino. I very much enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the rooms very warm and comfortable. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. Very surprised to be using a key for the room in this day and... More

We arrived at this hotel late in the evening as it started to rain and were too tired to try finding another hotel. We very disappointed with the overall quality and lack of cleanliness. The furnishings and bathroom fixtures were old and worn and there was mold around the edges of the tub. We drove around Europe for five weeks... More

Good hotel for a budget vacationer, close to the casino and restaurants, good connectivity by bus, helpful staff. slightly dated carpets and furniture but that adds to the character of the place in historic Montreux. We had a lovely time.

The location of this hotel is its big plus. 2 or 3 bus stops away from train station. Just opp the casino with some good eateries nearby. We tried Zurcher and Beijing Town which are really good and within 5 minutes walk. There is a Migros supermkt just minutes away as well. Back to the hotel itself, just like the... More
