Very nice hotel, located on a hillside facing Lac Leman, with a lovely view. The room was spacious and very confortable. Good service. Very well located, near the Cathedral. Breakfast also good. Really enjoyed our stay.

My partner and I stayed here whilst visiting the jazz festival. We were upgraded to a junior suite with a beautiful view. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff from booking restaurant reservations to opening a bottle of wine in our room. Excellent service and wonderfully clean, well equipped rooms. In a central location, near to restaurants, bars and... More

Our family of four, in two rooms, stayed at the Hotel de la Paix while attending the Montreaux Jazz Festival. The hotel is nicely situated and staff is very customer oriented. The rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable in size. Shopping, dining and transportation is close. Staff is multilingual and the hotel is certainly upscale in its feel. We... More

Really average level. Staff was very weak in all aspects. A/C wont work well.View was great. Breakfast was really 3 star standard. There is an issue with the staff, because it is not welcoming and they really do not care about the guest. They did not even help me with my luggages..

We stayed room only for two nights in this hotel. Our room was advertised as overlooking the lake and it certainly was but quite a distance from the lake. We were four floors up with a view over park and houses but not exactly what we expected. The hotel is very classy but expensive. We stayed room only so did... More

The hotel is situated in the center of the city, with a lake view (for most of the rooms). Rooms were large and clean. What I missed was something more in terms of decoration and style. The breakfast is extremely poor, something that is not acceptable, considering its 4 star quality. In addition, the bath compliments were inadequate for a... More
