“Average location, service and room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We booked this hotel because of the recommendations. But for us was not too much good. The location was not too much good, 2.5km to the casttle. No parking available for free, or if it's free you can only leave the car three hours maximum. The room was a bit small comparing with other hotels in Switzerland. The taxes were not included in the price. Also the breakfast was not included for 140FR per night. Wifi for free. Montreux is a nice place but the hotel was not a nice experience but enough.

Thank you very much for your review idem as your honesty,

We would like to sincerely apologize that you have not had the best impression of our hotel.

Our Hotel was built in 1900 in the euphoria of the "Belle Epoque" as a hostel, so the foundations are equipped with quite small rooms.

Our hotel may perhaps be small, but it's fine.

My grandmother often told me, that the most valuable things are usually packed in small little boxes.

We hope to welcome you again to our hotel at some point,
Until then, we thank you for your understanding and remain with our best regards from Montreux

What a cool, chic, and cozy hotel! It's located in the older section of Montreux, which doesn't look old at all. The streets around the hotel are very charming and quiet. There were bakeries and cafes nearby as well. It was just a 10 minute walk from the lake, which was incredibly beautiful. We accidentally went on Swiss National day and were treated to a spectacular fireworks display. We accidentally locked our key in our room but called the late night emergency number (the hotel isn't staffed after 11:00 PM) and they came quickly to let us back in. Highly recommend this place. There was also a beautiful and unexpected hike just up the road that led you through a lush green mountainous riverbed.

I have stopped by at the hotel numerous times for breakfast and to meet friends.

Great hotel, very clean! Wi-fi worked perfectly, being from Canada, it was my only source of communications and it worked amazingly...very glad about that!

Coffee and breakfast was very much affordable considering we are in Switzerland.

I adored the lovely receptionist (Gianna). Her smile and attitude made me feel right at home.

I would recommend this hotel if you want a great no-hassle stay to Montreux.

Stayed 4 nights during the Jazz Festival.
Very cute little hotel high above the city, very modern decor with a music/festival theme throughout. Room was very nice, quite large and easy to move around in.
Large desk along one wall, and WiFi was fine. Would have liked a minibar.
TV only had a few news-based English channels.
Bathroom had stand-alone shower.
Breakfast was 15frc, never tried it.

Tip: Bus 206 stops right at the door, and does a loop back down to the city & rail station.
As it's quite a steep climb up from the town, I'd suggest checking out the stops/schedules and using this bus, at least when returning.
Front desk provided welcome drink and map with hand-written notes of the town including 206 bus route.

On behalf of the entire Tralala-Team,
we thank you very much for this great review.

It is very inspiring for all of us to know we have succeeded in our efforts to give and share the real essence of the Jazz-Inspiration.

I would like to excuse myself for not having a Mini-Bar in your Room, we had taken it out to exchance it a few days later for a new one. Be assured that we will keep working to enhance, even more, the actual service beyond our guest's expectations.

For your next visit, please make sure to get the Bus No. 206, which is leaving every 20 minutes. :)
It takes 4 minutes to come up from the Trainstation by Bus..
(from monday till saturday, the Bus is leaving each 12, 32 and 52 from the Trainstation)

Looking forward to welcoming you back very soon,
Till then we stay with our kindest Regards,

This hidden little hotel is up the hillside from the noise and commotion of the waterfront. It is very clean, although the rooms are quite small. What makes this hotel special is the front desk receptionist, Gianna. She is a friendly, exuberant woman who made our stay extra enjoyable. She made us feel that the hotel really cared about our stay and our comfort. The restaurants she suggested were right on the mark, and she shared all kinds of knowledge about the area. Thanks for a great stay!

I stayed here for a brief 2 night visit to Montreux, I was travelling alone but would definitely like to come back again and stay with my family.
When I checked in, the lovely receptionist (Gianna?) couldn't have been more helpful - you get offered a welcome drink and she was kind enough to upgrade my room and also gave me plenty of local info (bus and train times etc). I also got a pass for using on the local bus which meant you can get around the town for free (the #206 serves the train station and also stops right outside the hotel every 20 minutes). If you are getting to the hotel to begin with, there is quite an uphill walk so maybe a taxi or bus is better if you have bags, I got a cab and I think it was only about 10CHF)
The hotel itself was spotless and clean and my lovely room had some pretty views where you could see the lake. I liked the 'dark' feeling of the bedroom and the ensuite was huge with double sinks and a really deep tub with powerful shower overhead. There was also a minibar and hairdryer, tv, dvd etc
The bed was big and comfy
I didn't sample the breakfast as I was up and out early each morning, but I think it was 15CHF so fairly reasonable in terms of local prices.
I like the fact that this hotel wasn't on the main street and was away from any real noise.
The whole jazz theme and contemporary feel of this hotel is great, well done to the staff and management there - really attentive and friendly :-)

We booked this hotel by checking a railway map which states Les Planches station is right next to the hotel. But it's not the main railway line. So we had to walk upward on a steep hill with luggage and a baby on a stroller in the rain. We reached out for a taxi but the driver refused to take us because he didn't have a car seat. We met very friendly local ladies and they guided us to a bus station.(bus no 206) The bus stop is right opposite the hotel(les Planches is the name of the stop)
We got a welcome drink and a snack and staff were friendly.room was small but clean. But there were no wardrobe,tea or coffee making facilities and a headboard for the bed. Bathroom was tiny but it wasn't a big deal for us. Breakfast was not a very pleasant one. Can't find restaurant nearby so we had to go to the town all the time.on the second day we stayed they had a party and we were also invited. it was going on till the morning and sleeping was not possible with the noise. It was convenient to travel Roch de Nayes because the train stops at les Planches station.overall Montreux is a gorgeous place and you can enjoy no matter where you stay.
