This Hotel was ideal for us on foot from the station being just a 10 min walk. The Hotel staff are polite but not enthusiastic about their work. Our party needed two rooms and they were completely different in style and standard although they were both on the first floor. One was modern with wooden floors and a lovely walk... More

I prefer to give this hotel 3-1/2 stars. This is an old hotel that needed updating. We're a family of 4 and were given conjoining rooms. Pretty spacious for Europe. We were on the 4th floor and got a peek-a-boo view of the lake (in between buildings, and after stepping out into one of our two balconies). The beds were... More

We had a very clean double room with a "lake view." We had to look in between two buildings to see the lake. Very pricy for what you get, but the whole area is expensive. The staff is nice and breakfast not too bad.

If you dislike modern hotels that lack character, and where everything works in exactly the same, boring, predictable way, the Hotel Helvetie could be for you. Its heyday was plainly a hundred years or more ago, and the ghosts have long since settled into its vast and grand public rooms, some of which are now used to display contemporary paintings....

Walking distance to the train station and the lake coupled with the friendliest staff we saw in our 2 weeks in Europe make this a great place to stay. Lots of character with a view of the lake and a wonderful breakfast make this a place we would revisit.

A very pleasant and quiet hotel in the very centre of Montreux. Across the Grand Casino, bus stop some steps. The hotel is an old fashioned, but clean, silent, and nice staff. Rooms are spacious enough, lot of them with terrace. Comfortable beds, big showers. Good and fresh breakfast. Railway station cca. 10 minutes walk. Port of Montreux some minutes... More

This hotel was very far from station by walk, atleast 15 minutes; with the luggage it is difficult and there is inclination also. Further the hotel is very old and shabby. Breakfast was not upto the mark.
