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.

Stayed one night on train tour round Switzerland.Least good of all hotels we stayed in. Room rather gloomy, bathroom needs updating. But bed very comfortable so had good night's sleep. Breakfast fairly ordinary. Good position to go walking along edge of lake and handy for casino if you like that sort of thing (we don't!).

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
