Stayed for 1 night as part of golden pass rail tour. This is an older hotel which would've been very grand in its day. Our room was very large with comfortable beds but no a/c, which was needed but there was a fan and being on a higher floor meant we were happy to leave the large windows open. Great... More

We stayed here last year and decided to book as soon as we got home. This hotel is perfectly placed for our needs. It is across the road from the Casino which is where there was a big Freddie Mercury party and it is a 5-10 minute walk from the Freddie Mercury statue and the lake. We were checked in... More

The hotel was located fairly close to the railway station and to shops and restaurants. The staff were helpful. The rooms were nice with high ceilings but the ensure was very small with a tiny shower. There were no facilities for making tea or coffee which we have come to expect. The breakfast was quite good.

We loved our stay at this hotel. It is right in downtown Montreaux so you can walk everywhere. It has a lot of old world charm, a kind of faded glory that comes with being large, old and much used. Perhaps a little dog-eared around the edges but that is not to suggest it is run down or dusty. It... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights only. It was very basic. The outside looks very nice but the hotel is a bit run down. The Good:The front desk was helpful. The Bad: We saw a big dead bug on the floor when we entered the room for the first time.

We stayed in three 3-star hotels during our trip to Switzerland. This one was as expected - comfortable enough and clean enough but in a hotel that has seen better days - about 40 years ago I think. The room was big enough as was the bathroom but the decor was from the 60s or 70s I think. Room was... More

First of all the name of this hotel is changing to j5 Hotels over the next year. So trying to find the place, was a bit difficult as I was looking for Hotel Helvetie and not the j5 Hotels sign that was above the door. The lobby is very nice - but the rooms are less than desirable. As I... More

Upon entering the hotel, there was a modern art exhibition so the hotel looked very lively. My wife and I checked-in and the first room we got was nothing at all like what we imagined, the bathroom was old and dirty and the sink is located in the bed room. I ran down to the reception and explained that it... More

Started our Swiss holiday in Montreux and stayed at this friendly hotel. It is very dated and in need of an update but the staff are friendly and the breakfast was good. Don't miss the almond croissants! Bedrooms are past their best and very compact with strange bathroom configurations. Cramped shower and toilet area with the sink in the main... More
