“What an amazing place to stay...”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Our first impression of this hotel was how friendly and helpful the staff were. It was our first trip to Montreux so we weren't familiar with the town or surrounding area but the Manager Yvan answered all our questions and made sure we knew all the best places to go.Our room was clean and a good size but the best part were the breathtaking views over the lake- amazing to wake up to each morning. This is a small family-owned hotel, the staff were very attentive and always on hand. If you have any questions just ask for Yvan!

Room Tip: try and get a room looking over the lake!

This unique Splendid Hotel is a true experience of its name!
You are in a treat for one of the best and warmhearted people, and generation of family's passion in service and hospitality to be around and being taking cared of in charming Montreux, Switzerland.
Right in the center of the city, walk across the main street and your at one of the most magical sites on earth, facing Leman Lake.
Very clean and impeccably well maintained, it's Swiss pride!
Historical structure, excellent service and value.
Highly recommended.

Hotel Splendid was one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Montreux. From its location, at the city center, to its service, everything was up to my expectations and was affordable. Believe me, it is the best place to look forward to after a long day of traveling and shopping. I have already recommended it to my friends and family. Thanks a lot Yvan! I hope to stay there again during my next visit!

I think the hotel is good value for Money. The internet on our floor did not work in the room and that was disapointing. I hear they are re building the wifi net work. Check that it has been done.
Brekfast was ok. Rooms not that homey but still ok. Rooms were clean and beds comfertabel and the staff was helpfull and friendly.

Room Tip: Make sure you go for lake view and higher up is better.

I've done several business trips all over the world, but no trip can hold a candle to how incredible my experience with Hotel Splendid was. Upon my first visit there, the staff went above and beyond to ensure our happiness, the rooms were extremely clean, felt brand new and were very pleasurable. I previously stayed at the Riviera a block down and have to say I prefer Hotel Splendid. The food was way better at Hotel Splendid, too!

The owner of the establishment, Yvan Mayfair, is definitely someone you must meet. Once he found out we were from the United States he made sure we checked out the coolest sights in the area.

Hotel Splendid is next door to the Mayfair House, the best bar in the city. There's no cover, the atmosphere is perfect, and drinks are affordable.

The hotel is in the best spot of town, right down the street from the famous Freddy Mercury statue, next door to great restaurants, and just a 2 minute walk from the lake. The view is spectacular, unlike anything I've seen in the States.

I will definitely go back to Hotel Splendid next year!

We decided to stay one night at Montreux for the view. Hotels are pretty expensive. This one does not escape to the rule. Rooms are over-used, furnitures like first price in Ikea, hairs everywhere in the bathroom, old & noisy bed... Only the view convinced us to stay. And also Mme Haufman. She's just amazing. A great "souvenir".
Otherwise, breakfast was... poor. Nobody to serve, half a dozen plates in a fridge... No music in the breakfast room.
About rooms, the "new" ones were too modern for us. Toilet are directly in the room, with only half a wall 1meter high as "separation". It looks more like a bar or american kitchen lol. A kind of joke?
Otherwise, hotel very well-located to enjoy the lake view. And that's all.
