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

One of those places I have much enjoyed but never actually took the time to share my opinions. If the saying "later is better than never" applies even with a 2yr delay then please read this short review. Stayed in March 2012 when the city is totally off season but that is one relaxing way to see it. The reservation... More

Tricky place to find, not far from the train station (about 5mins walk), but got to locate the elevator which is about 700m away from the station to avoid carrying the luggage down a long flight of stairs. Was upgraded to the room with balcony and direct lake view and a complimentary local tramway pass upon check in by wonderful... More

We had a very nice stay at the hotel Splendid. The location is great-right on the lake, right by a bus stop and just down two hills from the train station. One of the owners was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Even though we aren't there for the tv, he apologized for not having American tv stations!... More

This is a old hotel in a fantastic central location overlooking the lake. However inside the accommodation was quite basic for the price charged. Breakfast was also on the basic side compared to other places we stayed in Switzerland.

We enjoyed three wonderful nights in Montreux at the historic and family-run Hotel Splendid. It is in a perfect location just down the hill from the train station, right on the water, and across from the TI. Easy walk to everything. The rooms are clean and confortable and ours had a balcony where we enjoyed some spectacular sunsets. The owners... More
