“Last renovation 30 years ago”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

This supposedly 5star place has a clear socialist 80ies flair to it. If you're ready to spend 300 chf for that, go ahead! Rooms are sad - though some have a gorgeous view over the lake and few even have a terrace. Lights did not work properly, even after I complained the reception staff only advised that I should try a few more switches.
The spa is a bad joke from the 80ies, small pool, not clearly labelled ways, mini-jacuzzi, no staff in the evening.
Breakfast is maybe two-star, with some wobbly scrambled eggs and two choices of jam. No sushi, nothing out of the ordinary...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

This is the second time i have stayed in this hotel . We are always booked in this hotel because of its proximity to the Montreux Convention center. This hotel is about 15 minutes by walking from the train station but a taxi ride will cost about 12 swiss francs, if you have a big luggage it would be better to take a taxi going to the train station because it is an uphill climb. The lobby is starting to show its age but check in is relatively smooth. The rooms are situated rather odd from the elevators so you may still walk up or down some stairs even if you are in the same floor as the lift. I stayed in the 3rd floor which is the same floor as the lobby but i had to take 1 flight of stairs which may not be good if you have a heavy suitcase. The rooms are basic . It is a non smoking hotel but thy allow smoking on the balcony. If you are lucky to get the lake view rooms then you wake up to a gorgeous view of the snow capped mountains and the lake. From the lobby, you can go down to the first floor and exit through the back and take a walk along the lake.

Room Tip: Lake view room are the best

The hotel is very nice, and the frontdesk employees always helped us to find attractions, restaurants, etc. Our room was big enough to accomodate my family (4 people). The breakfast is complete! At the lake shore, which can be easily accessed by the hotel ground floor, the is the possibility to go jogging.

I've stayed at the Royal plaza with friends last summer and all enjoyed our stay I'm this 5 stars property. Very nice and helpful staff at the front office, large and clean room with amazing view over Geneva lake ! Food is excellent, service a little slow and not well managed but the place is very comfortable and well appointed. There is a SPA including indoor pool, not so big but very nice for relaxing time,

Let me start that in our long trip through Switzerland and Italy,this hotel by far was the best we stayed in.The view from our room was out of this world and the tranquility that you have there is great.The rooms where big and very comfy and the bed made us feel we where still at home.Also the lobby was very classy and well located.
Breakfast was also very good and with a wide variety
Best Hotel in our trip

We enjoyed a suite on the 8th floor of this hotel and an absolutely splendid view of the Lake.
The staff was courteous and efficient to a fault and the room always kept in immaculate condition.
The location is perfect and affords easy access to the promenade around the lake.
Our stay was truly wonderful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the right side of the hotel facing the lake for best views.
