“Amazing Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We were given a corner room on the 7th floor that had the most amazing view of Lake Geneva, Montreux, and the surrounding mountains. The room, although basic, had a little outdoor patio and when we were in our room we spent most of our time there because the view was so lovely. The breakfast offered a good variety of tasty items.

Two of the people we spoke to at the front desk were super helpful. The woman who checked us in told us where the escalator to the train station was so we wouldn't have to heft our bags up the stairs (very important!!!) and a gentleman later on told us how to get to Chillon Castle on the bus and said guests can make a reservation to go on the bus anywhere in town for free. When I went down to the front desk later to ask for a ticket, the new guy on duty acted as if it was a major inconvenience even though no one else was waiting.

There was loud music playing until after three in the morning and even my earplugs couldn't drown out the back beat. There was also a chain saw event going on during the day, which drove me absolutely nuts. My impression is that Montreux is not a quiet place no matter where you stay...It is beautiful, though.

Room Tip: We suggest a higher floor and corner rooms - have spectacular views.

We visited the Montreux Jazz Festival. Great and very central location. Very clean modern rooms with a heavenly view over the la lake of Geneva. We haven't tried the Restaurant but they have a interesting menu with an asian touch. We'll come back next year!

Found the hotel to be well appointed. TV system worked well, with good selection of both English and foreign channels.
WiFi was a bit slow, but this appears to be normal for most hotels.
Breakfast was good, with nice variety.
Bathroom was large, with toiletries.
Unfortunately the bathtubs are a problem. But have not found many hotels with walk in showers.
Happy to recommend.

I was on the 8th floor, looking over the lake. The view was fantastic and the room large, but nothing particularly nice. It reminded me of a college dorm room with a view. The outdoor hotel restaurant, however, was very pleasant and reasonable for the location. My impression of Montreux is that it is a resort town that has seen better days and is banking on its history rather than competing for new visitors. The hotel is very convenient to the train station.

Gorgeous view of Lake Geneva and part of Montreux from the two huge windows. Comfy bed, large bathroom, exceptional service, perfectly located, and overall a fantastic experience. Its proximity to the train station and its location on the lake are huge advantages.
Highly recommend.

Very good value. All rooms have a lake view. We were "upgraded" and had a large room, very comfortable. This is a modern hotel so has not the charm of some others and it is beginning to have some wear issues, but I would certainly recommend.

All the rooms have view to the lake, breakfast of good quality is offered an they provide the guest with a free transportation pass to be used in public transport. The price is a bit high, but the room and the service are excellent. The location is very convenient, as it is not so far from the train station.
