The hotel is located in the middle of the main areas of the city. The hotel has seen its best days and desperately need an upgrade. There is no isolation between the rooms and the corridors so you can hear everything. However there are new beds and they are very comfy. It's clean and staff is friendly. Convenient parking nearby... More

I liked Hotel Helvetie very much. Other reviews criticized it for being past its prime; but then so am I. For me, it was a perfect hotel in a perfect location. I'd go back any time! I liked that it was so close to Freddie Mercury's statue and to the casino that held Freddie's birthday bash - not to mention... More

Stayed for 1 night as part of golden pass rail tour. This is an older hotel which would've been very grand in its day. Our room was very large with comfortable beds but no a/c, which was needed but there was a fan and being on a higher floor meant we were happy to leave the large windows open. Great... More

We stayed here last year and decided to book as soon as we got home. This hotel is perfectly placed for our needs. It is across the road from the Casino which is where there was a big Freddie Mercury party and it is a 5-10 minute walk from the Freddie Mercury statue and the lake. We were checked in... More

The hotel was located fairly close to the railway station and to shops and restaurants. The staff were helpful. The rooms were nice with high ceilings but the ensure was very small with a tiny shower. There were no facilities for making tea or coffee which we have come to expect. The breakfast was quite good.

We loved our stay at this hotel. It is right in downtown Montreaux so you can walk everywhere. It has a lot of old world charm, a kind of faded glory that comes with being large, old and much used. Perhaps a little dog-eared around the edges but that is not to suggest it is run down or dusty. It... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights only. It was very basic. The outside looks very nice but the hotel is a bit run down. The Good:The front desk was helpful. The Bad: We saw a big dead bug on the floor when we entered the room for the first time.

We stayed in three 3-star hotels during our trip to Switzerland. This one was as expected - comfortable enough and clean enough but in a hotel that has seen better days - about 40 years ago I think.
