Vevey Hotel & Guesthouse
Reviewed June 29, 2010

This was my first time staying at a hostel. I was a bit nervous, but the staff put us right as ease. We arrived late, but called that afternoon and were told the combo to the door and left keys to our room. They did all that they promised. The room was spacious and had an amazing view of Lake Geneva. The kitchen was simple, and a few things were broke, but that is ok, we ate out. There are alot of little bakeries in town and also a town market on some days...it was awesome! The surrounding vineyards are amazing and a great hike. Chateau Chillion is very close. Perfect location to everything for a backpacker. I would stay here again definitely. Showers were clean too...

The location could not be better. Right off the water of Lake Le Leman. Great view and close to lots of restaurants, shops, and pubs. The room was neat and clean. Wifi was available for a small price. Community kitchen was available. Shared bathrooms were very clean and had great water pressure.

Stay here. You won't regret it one bit. Wonderful clean spacious rooms with fantastic views of the lake and alps. Amazingly friendly accommodating staff, wonderful clean kitchen open 24/7, best beds and blankets in Europe, clean showers with lots of hot water, clean toilets, private terrace from the common room, convenient location, free wifi - computer/internet available in the main lobby...simply put - everything you want from a hotel but you get from a hostel. Wonderful. So good, we almost didn't want to go explore the area and almost just ended up staying in the hostel to enjoy the accommodations.

Highly recommended. Room was clean, bright, and comfortable. Location ideal. View of lake from windows. Lovely terrace. We were attending a wedding at the Chateau de Chatelard and found the free bus pass issued to us by the guest house to be incredibly useful.

Hi, I am really surprised there are only 2 reviews of this lovely hostel situated only two buildings back from beautiful Lake Geneva. The snow caped alps reflect on the water with numerous bird life. I have never found a place more beautiful throughout all my travels and stay here each time I visit Europe. Reception is on the 4th level with spacious bunk rooms and double rooms on each level. There is a TV room and kitchen on level 4 with access to a sunny terrace overlooking the lake and the vine clad mountains behind Vevey. It is close to Montreux abnd the Chillion Castle.

There is a farmers food market in the square adjoining the hostel 2 or 3 times a week where one can pick up some lovely local cheeses, bread etc for lunch.

Reception will issue you with the Riviera Card which will give you free transport on the busses, funicular and some local mountain trains. Trolley Bus #1 will take you to Montreux & Chillion Castle. Or just stroll along the lakeside flower laden promenade admiring the views. Or take a antique paddlesteamer from Vevey wharf to Lausanne etc and return through the vineyards by train.

The toilet/washing/showering facilities at Riviera Lodge are modern and spotlessly clean. There is a very friendly atmosphere and it is easy to met other people. There's a large supermarket in the basement of a nearby shopping centre and a smaller but bit more expensive supermarket next door to the railway station 5 minutes walk away.

we stayed in Riviera Lodge during the weekend, and the reasons i suggest this b&b are -

1) Cost Effective
2) Clean, esp.., bathrooms although they are common W/C and wash rooms
3) Centrally located, a few steps and we are near the shore of the lake
4) Close to the Vevey SBB, shopping area, restaurants all around
5) The small kitchen is well equipped and spacious
6) The staff is helpful, and always ready to stretch that extra to make their guests feel comfortable.

We only stayed for 1 night over Easter but could have happily stayed for a few more days. Our private double room was very spacious and clean. Bed very comfortable. Although we didn't have a private bathroom, the one we used was extremely clean and hardly used by others.

There was a well equipped kitchen for those on a budget and wishing to cook their own food and a lovely roof terrace so you can eat outside and catch some sun.

There was a wonderful food market in the square on Saturday and we picked up some lovely local cheeses, bread etc for lunch.

I highly recommend this place. Not just for young people. There were families with young children and older travellers staying so it isn't your usual noisy hostel.
