Stayed here during the Montreux Christmas market for a long weekend and was very happy with our stay.
The hotel was clean and tidy, although the carpets in the reception could do with replacing. The staff were very attentive and friendly and helpful in recommending things to do.
The room was clean and the bed comfy, only issue was there was no tea making facilities in the room. Would have been nice to have had this option. We didnt have breakfast when we stayed so cant comment on that, but they did make us a fantastic ho chocolate one night!

Needed hotel for Christmas market : booked this hotel at an amazing rate (considering it’s Montreux and Christmas season), and can really only say good stuff. At this price, expectations are accordingly, and I’ve paid much higher prices for very awful stays.
Room was spacious, clean, beds were good as were pillows and linen.
The whole building is still really authentic old style: personally I genuinely love this, even if it is a bit worn: it should be at this age: beautiful wooden floors, old furniture, classic vibe, as long as the essentials are good, and they were.
Well isolated room (zero neighbour noise). Reception was warm and friendly. Location is fantastic: to me it was exactly what I was hoping to find and will book again when wanting to go out in Montreux: excellent value proposition.
The hotel is perfectly located in front of the Casino, just a few minutes walk to the Freddy Mercury Statue, and approx. 10min walk to the rail station.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
The 19th century Hotel is well maintained, although some renovation/modernization is highly needed, but for such an old building I can imagine the investments are very high.
The hotel was very nicely situated 2 minutes from Casino and a short walk to the waterside. The Christmas markets along the way was very nice. Breakfast buffet was also very nice, at CHR 12, that’s very reasonable by Swiss standards. But no hot food though, just cheeses, breads, yogurts, cold meats and fruits.

Perfect hotel in every way! This is truly a wonderful 5-star hotel. The Christmas market is just steps away from this hotel. Such fun!
The view to the lake is so beautiful.
This hotel will not disappointment and totally worth the money to stay there.
The lake view room had the most stunning view, and being that it was December and the Christmas market was just across the street, it was very festive and pretty. The Christmas market pretty much starts right across the street and goes along the pomenade for over a mile I believe- we walked it but I can’t remember the distance of the market.
You’ll pass the Freddie Mercury memorial statue, Claude Allo, a Ferris wheel and where Papa Noel rides across the night sky… the location couldn’t be better if you’re coming for the Christmas market. The bus with the free city pass they give you will take you to the castle (chateau chillon) or you can walk it, and take the bus back.
Service at the hotel was tip top from check in to check out. Good breakfast spread with great service.
There was a wonderful Christmas market right across the street, so this hotel is definitely one of the best options during the year end period. The beautiful lake is right in front of the hotel; so perfect for a nice stroll with loved ones.
