The location was great, close to the train station, port and lake. But our room was a mess; the terrace wasn't cleaned yet and there were plastic bottles, cigarette and lots of other trash. There were holes in the curtains from the cigarettes and there were stains on the curtains and carpet. Overall, all furniture is in need of renovation.... More

This is a very fairly priced hotel with an excellent location. The hotel is old and a bit tired looking, but the rooms are spacious by European standards and are well appointed. The breakfast is adequate with cereals etc. A frankly don't remember the breakfast or the breakfast room. Location is outstanding. Across the street from the lake promenade. We... More

Montreux is a famous place for the rich people and celebrities and looked expensive to me. Thus we stayed only for 1 night in this hotel. We came here from Zermatt by train in the evening and took the next day train for Geneva airport in the evening. It was only one day at Montreux and thus looked for such... More

We stayed at this hotel for our a few days on our honeymoon. The rooms have spectacular views! Nothing like looking out your hotel window to see Lake Geneva and the Alps. Beautiful! The owner of the hotel was extremely friendly. He helped us immensely when picking out places to go during our trip, he even sat down to have... More

I have stayed in this hotel for two days. When I arrived, I was offered with a room without door separating the bedroom and toilet. I was not comfortable with it and I requested changing the room. The hotel staff was nice and he offered another room which was bigger with the same great view to Lake Geneva to me.... More

It's in a great spot overlooking the lake , placed near both the train station and the ferry landing. It's a three star hotel so not fancy but it's clean, rooms are spacious, and the staff are super- helpful. We'd certainly come here again. The street can be noisy at weekends but they seem to fill the hotel from the... More

Just spent one night here but would like to come back. It's a great location overlooking the beautiful lake. Ivan could not have been more helpful on our arrival. We enjoyed visiting the Queen Experience and Freddy Mercury's statue. It was a Beautiful Day!

We spent two nights at this hotel in late September. Our room overlooked Lake Geneva with it's beautiful view. The weather was perfect to sit on the balcony drinking wine. The room was very big with the usual European bed for 2 people and a day bed as well. Bathroom was recently updated. There was a free continental breakfast which... More

We have just had 3 nights at this hotel. It is about a 4 minute walk from the train station.when you exit the station, cross the road and descend about 70-80 steps (there is an escalator to get back up to the station). When you reach the street at the end of the steps, turn left and the hotel is... More
