This hotel has a phenomenal location (beautiful natural scenery) and a rich history. It over 100 years old and had many events taking place there. The location is along the breathtaking Geneva Lake.

Fairmont Le Montreux Palace was excellent choice for our stay in Montreux. Everything in this hotel contributed to make our stay in Montreux very enjoyable. I think it is the blend of the great historical hotel-building and Fairmont’s high-standards. Rooms were clean and spacious enough. The staff and service were outstanding. We stayed in “Signature Room Lake View” connected with... More

Gorgeous hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva. We had a small glitch when we showed up and the room we had booked was very small. I went to the desk and they apologized and immediately moved me to a bigger room. Place is gorgeous and staff is friendly! Food is a little pricy! The bartender Kristzina was the nicest... More

This is a lovely hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva. Apparently, it was used as a hospital in both WWI and WWII and retains lots of old world charm. The service was exemplary in both the hotel and restaurant. The breakfast buffet was fabulous, but try some place else for dinner. It is way overpriced and not what you... More

Positives: The look of the hotel is majestic. The reception area is so-so, but the other public areas are very elegant. The walking distance proximity to the railway station is very helpful especially as we used the trains a lot. Also easy access to buses and the beautiful walks along the promenade by the lake. The breakfast area is gorgeous... More
