“Very good hotel at competitive price...taking into account the prices of the hotels around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

This hotel is perfect if you want to visit Montreux or its Riviera. It is located in the small village called Villeneuve, but it is very close (1 minute walking) to the tourist information, the train station, the shore of the lake Lemann, and the bus stop which takes you to Chateau de Chillon (5-6 minutes), Montreux (10 minutes) or Vevey.
Icluded in the price, much hotels in Montreux Riviera include the Montreux Riviera Card, which gives you free access to some public means of transport, such as bus, and 50% discount in Chateau de Chillon, train to Roches de Naye, and more.
The staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is a complete buffet of a good quality.
The rooms, although a little small, are spotless clean and brand new. If it wasn't for the size, could perfectly be the rooms of a 3 star hotel.
We had free parking for the 2 nights we stayed (the hotel had a few places to park for the customers who used, but you didn't have them reserved for yourself, so if you moved the car, you could lose them).
The area surrounding the hotel was very quiet, as it was next to a small square, and a little street with nearly no cars going through.
There few bad things. The duvet was a little shors, so if you pulled it out, your feet weren't covered. We asked for a second duvet and the cleaning staff kindly gave it to us. The windows had shutter which allowed a little light to come into the room at night, which made sleeping a little difficult when the sun was rising. Anyway, they were minor flaws. The final bad thing was the price (145 CHF or 120 euros a per night), but taking into account the prices of the hotels in all the Montreux Riviera, it wasn't so overprized.
As a summary, I don't think you will find anything cheaper in this place, and I am almost sure you won't find a better hotel.

During a short trip to the Swiss Riviera we travelled between Villeneuve, Geneva and Vevey. We would have loved to stay in Montreux but found the price of accommodation too high. After speaking to the very helpful Helena in the tourist information office she contacted the Hotel Du Soleil in Villeneuve. She advised it would be cheaper to stay in Villeneuve and as travel in the Swiss Rivera is free on rail and bus with the Swss travel card (supplied by most hotels) we could move around easily. We stayed for three nights and were able to travel back and forward from the other towns on the edge of the lake. Coraline and Swen Muller were helpful and friendly hosts. The hotel is in a nice quiet town with lovely views of the lake on one side and snow-capped peaks of the Alps on the other We had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.
