The Montreux Palace is everything you would expect from a five star hotel. However, we would have appreciated it if the hotel staff had informed us beforehand about the Montreux Jazz Festival. You hardly notice it in the hotel, but in the garden along the poolside we were welcomed by greasy odours from the foodstalls and five different loud music.... More

Really nice Hotel with super location. Very helpful staff. I would highly recommend it. We stayed there in 2013. It really is a five star hotel and we had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The rooms were good size and very well presented and very clean.

After having held Incentive Programs world wide I can say without any hesitation that the Montreux Palace rates among the best. They understand the North American mentality having dealt in that market for many years. The F&B is tops and they have room sizes to fit pretty much any size group. For example for about 60 people the Rotary Room... More

This hotel is fine. The rooms are very small for the price. The service is okay. It is right across the street from the Montreux Jazz Festival and very close to the train station. The bus for Castle de Chillion is right in front. It's location is great.

The Fairmont Le Montreux Palace was a grand and comfortable hotel in the most beautiful position overlooking the lovely Lake Geneva. My husband and I were with a tour group and as such did not have a Lake view room, but I can imagine how wonderful they would have been. The breakfast room had a super view and the hotel... More
