“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 days and we were absolutely amazed by the quality of the room (very nicely furnished), the quality of the breakfast (hot bread, croissants, cakes, beverages, eggs, ham, cheese) and the welcoming staff that did everything to help us out figure out what we wanted to visit and how to get there. The hotel is a 10 to 15 min away from the city center and the railway, in a very quiet part of town where you have an amazing view.

I stayed in a single room. The location is very picturesque, slightly elevated with perfect serene view. Very quiet area of Montreux. I had a room on the third floor with a tiny balcony. The room is very small and aggressively decorated. The decor will be appreciated by young jazz lovers, but was not to my liking. Breakfast was good and abundant. There are numerous small restaurants around with locals enjoying home made food and socializing. In my opinion the room was overpriced.

A friend and I have been staying here for the last few days and we've found it to be excellent in every way. Not being a fan of main chain commercial hotels I stumbled across Hotel Tralala through Google and am very pleased I did. Its a very cool place, great location in an arts area which is very picturesque. A bus stops right outside and the train station is 10 minutes walk. The staff here are very friendly and helpful, rooms perfectly adequate and very clean. Beds very comfortable. 3 mjnutes away is a terrific French restaurant called Restaurant du Pont with excellent food and service - again reasonably priced for the standard of food. The hotel recommended them and the restaurant lived up to its promise. Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the street which was absolutely fine.

Upon arriving at sunset we found the Tralala had moved us downhill without notice to an "alternative" supposedly 3 star hotel, the Bon Port, due to recent flooding in "our" room.

Upon finally locating the Bon Port, there was clearly no comparison in the location, size, and value for money, yet both told us they had the same price per room, based on THAT day, yet we had booked months earlier hence should have paid a much lower price.

We have yet to find out who pocketed the extra money.

What miffed us was that standing at the Reception counter another young couple booked in on the spot yet we were told we couldn't have a room due to flooding. Why couldn't we have had the one they took? We were told it was because they couldn't contact us. We had left contact details with the Agency in Oz who booked all our accommodation, so at least someone should have been told.

All this messing around meant I missed out photographing the one and only chance I had of a magnificant sunset over the lake and no one seemed to understand that being at the bottom of the hill with no parking and in a less than favourable area, was reason to be angry.

The Receptionist at the Tralala was very nice, very amenable, but it did not answer our questions.

We had booked this specific hotel based on all the excellent Reviews on Trip Advisor, and I saw this was true of the Reception and Lounge area ... magnificent and very trendy with a location to die for.

I'm sorry we missed the experience here as I can see other travellers have great Reviews, as I'm sure we would have too.

Room Tip: It would seem rooms at the front get views over the lake ... I don't know ... never got to see o...

I have been staying at hotel Tralala a few times now and it has always been consistently good. Nice welcome with welcome drink, clean and modern rooms, friendly staff and personal touch. Definitely no need to look for other lodging in Montreux.

Only stayed for one night here, but wish that it had been longer. The hotel is a great find, as despite being modern inside, it has character. Being a Swiss hotel then you know that the standards are going to be good, and here they are certainly good. Very clean, helpful staff (especially at Reception), and rooms that are clean, comfortable and good. It was also great to be in the old part of Montreux, with some interesting buildings and alleys around. I cannot agree with the people who complain that the hotel is too far to walk from the station, or that the hill is steep. Easy walk from the station, even with bags.

Bed, bathroom, and breakfast room were all good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Possibly the only negative things are the small tv in the room (a larger screen would have been nice) and also that the coffee at breakfast comes from a machine. These are very small criticisms for what is a great hotel.

Definitely recommend this hotel, not fancy but clean, good, and with character. It is an ideal base for Montreux if you do not need to be on the lakefront and do not need a fancy restaurant in your hotel. I intend to return !!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up in the hotel.

We spent the day in Geneva and were looking for a quiet/affordable/comfortable place to stay within an hour drive. Hotel Tralala was a great fit! Nestled in a quiet town along the lake beneath the Alps, Montreux was a great town to stay and the drive from Geneva was quick and beautiful. The rooms were very comfortable, and had a very unique decor - different from anything else we've seen in Switzerland. The breakfast and speed of the wireless in the dining area were the best features! The assortment and quality of breakfast items really made our stay worthwhile. Great for a 1-2 night stay!
