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.

I was on a business trip so I will not write about prices or so. The room was just simply ok, I can't add more to this. It was rather a motel-style room that a real hotel. It was very close to the railway station so it was convenient for me. The guy at the front desk was very nice,... More

Beware. Tiny, tiny, 10' x 10' rooms with baths so small 3' x 5', you had to step outside to change you mind. The first room they gave me had not been cleaned from the previous client so we had to move to an other floor. Very noisy, next to the train station. Dirty carpet, and mold in the shower.... More

We stayed here for one night because we liked the look of Vevey. Vevey accommodation is expensive, even for this part of Switzerland and this hotel is on the lower end of the cost scale. Perhaps ludicrous to compare but it provides the kind of experience you can get in any little town in the UK for a lot less... More

This looks nicer on the photo than it is. The room was very small, cheaply furnished. It is however very convenient being right next to the station and within walking distance of the sights to see in Vevey. There was less noise from the trains than we were expecting.
