Hotel des Trois Couronnes
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Vevey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 18, 2011

This historic hotel, made famous by Henry James novel Daisy Miller and the film version of the story, deserves its title as the "grande dame" of Vevey hotels. Normally, this is very high end and priced accordingly, but we got a good price twice for large and very, very comfortable rooms, one with a balcony overlooking Lake Geneva, and both with gorgeous, luxurious bathrooms with fine amenities. The spa/pool area offers many treatments and a large swimming pool, with locker facilities and indoor and outside rest areas, and there's a great gym with modern exercise machines, free weights and cable tv (for long cardio). Service is four-five star as one would expect. Free parking on site if there's space. Location is stunning, right on the lake and around the corner from old Vevey, full of fascinating shops, from high end fashion to book stores to just quirky little places selling tea and coffee, etc. Try the creperie that advertises great capuchino for breakfast. If price isn't an issue, it's a truly great place for a romantic and healthy overnight or weekend.

Room Tip: Lakeside, with balconey if possible. Street side can be noisy.

Going to Switserland these days is an expensive endeavor and Hotel Des Trois Couronnes is no exception at that. But if you decide to go for the more luxury option it's the best choise on the Suise riviera by far. Located in picturesque Vevey village with a huge terrace overlooking the splendor of Lac Leman (the Suise name of lake Geneva) it's perfectly situated and close to both Montreaux and Lausanne. The rooms are fully equipped and very spacious, the spa and indoor pool are beautiful, the food is exquisite oh and did I mention the terrace... Although the modern rooms and facilities the hotel has a heritage that goes back for more then 150 years and this is clearly visible in all the beautiful interior details. This heritage also reflects in the attentive personal service of the staff and GM Jay Jauer, who is sure to come by your table for a short intermetzo. Wheather for business or Leasure hotel Des Trois Couronnes is sure to exceed your expectations.

After a visit at the photography museum in Vevey what could be better than a sunny Terasse on the Lake? I'd say crossing Megan Fox in the lobby and share the great dinner afterwards with her and your new camera. Apart from that little dream I would say this Terasse has it all.
You feel the historical ambiance with the beautiful indoor/outdoor architecture, you enjoy great food ( I suggest the asiatic fusion one ), you drink some great fresh white wine, you look at the mountains reflected on the blue lake.
The bar is great, especially when you have a good selection of music. Not the loungy usual stuff you'll find everywhere.

One of my all time favorite - the Trois Couronnes in Vevey. Excellent and friendly service. Well appointed and maintained rooms. Pay the extra charges for lake view rooms, preferably with balcony. It's worth the money.
And don't skip the breakfast buffet which is fantastic in selection and quality.

I stayed here on a business trip to Vevey, and couldn't be happier with my visit. The hotel itself is beautiful inside and out ... On a cool spring evening, it was a pleasure to enter the lobby and be greeted by the smell of a wood fire in the lobby's fireplace. The concierge and reception staff were very friendly and professional, and my room -- overlooking Lac Leman -- was perfect. It was showing it's age in a few spots, but nothing out of the ordinary for such a historic property. I was only there for one night before continuing on to Geneva, but I highly recommend it.

We had previously indulged (the only possible word!) in the New Year's Day buffet in this hotel and decided to treat ourselves to another meal there, and this time to stay the night. It is an expensive hotel, but provides all one would expect from an expensive hotel, and part of the high cost to non-swiss visitors is explained by the strength of the swiss franc.

We were not disappointed by our visit, and in fact wished we had spent more time there. All the staff were efficient and welcoming, making us feel that they were pleased to have us as guests, and that nothing was a problem or too much trouble. My only gripe regarding service was the lack of enough staff in the dining room during the excellent cold buffet breakfast.

Our room was immaculate, spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. Everything worked perfectly of course, but my husband found the bedside light was a little dim for reading. I should have appreciated tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Yes I know room service is efficient and available, but I like a cup of hot water when I wake in the morning, and it is awkward to ask just for that. The bathroom was divided into two areas, both large and very clean. One contained a toilet and bidet, the other was a shower room (no bath) with a basin.

I shall visit again.

Hotel des Trois Couronnes in Vevey is a beautiful vintage-modern style historic hotel with break-taking views of Lake Geneva (Lake Léman). Opt for a room with a lake view, you won't regret it when you are sitting on your private balcony. Surprisingly cozy feel to the hotel considering its 'grandness', reputation and history dates back to mid 1800's. The Suite's at the hotel are incredible! Hotel service impeccable! Location is perfectly situated for guests to walk around the village and lake front. You can easily rent a car and drive from Geneva (which we did) - Picturesque, beautiful drive. Highly recommended experience.
