Hotel Helvetie
Ranked #15 of 17 Hotels in Montreux
Reviewed 23 July 2017

Unfortunately we cannot give this hotel a good rating. Whilst it is an older hotel, that is really where it's charm ends. The front entrance and foyer and restaurant present very well, the rooms have not been loved for a very long time. The paint is peeling off the walls and windows, the bathroom is small and pokey and the facade looks very very tired. Whilst we found the staff did their jobs, it was only just. Breakfast was supposed to be available from 7am, they were still setting up after 7 am and not consideration that people are travelling and on time schedules and then stood in the kitchen chatting and very slow. In this day and age it is not unreasonable to expect a jug and coffee etc in the room, which there was none. The fan was a disgrace. Not sure what was going on but someone was slamming doors at midnight.......

The hotel has only one advantage - Location and friendly staff. The building is very old. While was having shower in the bathroom, suddenly soo many cockroaches appeared, hardly keep myself not to scream.

While the property is in a great location, it is located on a main road which is rather noisy with buses travelling from 6 am till 2 am at night-if you travel in the summer and need to open your windows (many swiss hotels do not have A/C). I am not sure why they have a sink in the bedroom? The staff is helpful.

We had a nice stay here! This is my kind of hotel: old with a bit of run down charm but clean and friendly. It's the kind of hotel where you can feel and see the hotels history. The staff were very helpful and when we had some booking complications, they upgraded our room to a huge room with lake view. It's about a 10min walk from the train station and 5mins from the lake.

Old hotel along a busy road. Lots of noisy traffic so expect noise up to 9pm right outside your window. Layout and furnishings are dated, but the basics are there: free wifi, TV, breakfast. Breakfast was nice with good wait staff. Hair-dryer was not working, and the front-desk could not replace it, so be prepared. Family room was big, cosy and comfortable.
