I was greeted with a very warm welcome and the lady gave me all the information I needed, including the free WiFi code. The rooms are basic but clean and there is a continental breakfast that includes some delicious mini pastries. The staff are brilliant.

I had to spend one night in Vevey and opted for the Hotel de Famille.   Hotel de Famille , since 1889 is immediately next to Vevey train station as you exit. No need to take a taxi to get there just walk. I was offered a reasonable price including breakfast perhaps because it is now off season. Having read... More

As a US business traveler, I get to stay in some nice hotels. The rooms are very basic, clean but sparce. Small bathroom, single beds, room door requires a key to lock inside and ou, no air conditioner, but heat. Reminds me of rooms 30-40 years ago. I am told this is very common in Europe, so I may be...

Dear Steen, Thank you very much for your comments. It is truth; our Hotel is situated right in the center of Vevey next to the train station, close to the lake and to all of commodities. We are also at the perfect location for day-trips to Geneva, Bern or Zermatt as well as Gruyères and Luzern. Downstairs we have a... More

Have stayed at this hotel a few times over the last 15 years or so, and it caters for both tourists & locals. It has always been well run & the staff are friendly. As it dates back to the 19th Century it has plenty of character, so don't expect ultra-modern facilities. The breakfast is typical continental style, and staff... More

Great location next to the train station, but make sure to get a room facing the street (not the train yard) as the street is rather quiet. Being close to the station is important as Vevey is small and you probably want to explore the surrounding areas. Vevey is perfectly situated between the two other main sights nearby, Lavaux and...

The hotel is in an excellent location in Vevey, 50m from the train station, 200m from the lake, restaurants and cafes around, free parking, free internet, excellent service from the stuff. But, the rooms and decoration are very old, beds are very old, you hear the neighbors flushing the water at their bathrooms. Our room was not clean, one bed... More

The location of this hotel is excellent...right around the corner from the train station and walking distance to everything. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The room however reminded me of a hostel or a college dorm room. There was only one pillow provided. With no air conditioning, I needed to sleep with the window open but... More

This hotel is located in an old building directly besides the Vevey trainstation, which was very convenient to us, because we travel by train. The old town and Lake Geneva are only a 5 - 10 minute walk away. Restaurants and shops are nearby. Our room and (small) bathroom were spotless and the beds were ok. Staff was very friendly.... More

Quite adequate, but expensive as all Swiss hotels are. Excellent breakfast on day 1 & helpful staff. Poor breakfast on day 2, limited choice & minimal quantities of food available. Female concierge was downright rude - when I told her of my poor breakfast, her reply was 'OK, goodbye'. Won't be going back to this particular hotel.
