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

Stayed 2 nights June 2016. Pleasant staff. Room small and more shabby than chic. Bathroom below par - shower at hip level- old fashioned fitments and a horrid cupboard with wallpaper covered (?) shelves. Comfortable large bed and clean. Breakfast was as basic as a continental breakfast can be. Loved the old lift. Central location and quiet at night. A... More

We had a nice stay in this historic hotel. I really enjoyed it. The hotel is perfectly situated. The room was very clean. The staff was friendly. The big stairs in the entry is impressive. Thank for this stay!

The Hotel has a great position. It's not modern in furniture and look, but it's an hotel, and it's comfortable to sleep and stay (that's what an hotel is meant to do). The central position is perfect so you just walk down and you are in the middle of the main street in Montreux. I absolutely recommend this hotel for... More
