We were coming from the Montreux train station and had some difficulty in locating the hotel building as the signage was not obvious. Thankfully we met a hotel staff along the way who gladly showed us the way. The walk took us about 15 minutes probably because we had bags with us. Check in was smooth and staff were courteous and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. WiFi was rocket speed! Only downside was no coffee/tea making facilities. Breakfast was simple and personally I don't think i... Read more

We had a nice stay at Helvetie for 2 nights while visiting the Christmas Markets, which I highly recommend. 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. We were on the 3rd floor in a e... Read more

I'll start by saying that the staff at Hotel Helvetie are great. Always smiling, great service was had by them. Unfortunately, this is where the positive part ends. Hotel Helvetie is a very old and tired hotel. You can tell from the moment you step into the lobby. The room we were given didn't match the photos that were sent to us. We were made to believe that we were getting a renovated room, but we received a very old room instead. You can tell by the stained carpets and the dirty shower curt... Read more

Hi recently stayed at the Hotel Helvetie for work. When I arrived they had no record of my booking and questioned my confirmation. Fortunately I had printed a copy of this. On departure although my booking stated my company had pre-paid for my room I was asked to pay. I did, questioning why when I was sure my work would have paid. I was assured and the manager even said he had checked emails. Later that day they emailed me to say payment had been taken in error and they would refund the differen... Read more

The Hotel has a great position. It's not modern in furniture and look, but it's an hotel, and it's comfortable to sleep and stay (that's what an hotel is meant to do). The central position is perfect so you just walk down and you are in the middle of the main street in Montreux. I absolutely recommend this hotel for the position it helds in the city! Montreux is wonderful, and you need to go there at least once in your life (summer time best time to go).

We had a nice stay in this historic hotel. I really enjoyed it. The hotel is perfectly situated. The room was very clean. The staff was friendly. The big stairs in the entry is impressive. Thank for this stay!

Stayed 2 nights June 2016. Pleasant staff. Room small and more shabby than chic. Bathroom below par - shower at hip level- old fashioned fitments and a horrid cupboard with wallpaper covered (?) shelves. Comfortable large bed and clean. Breakfast was as basic as a continental breakfast can be. Loved the old lift. Central location and quiet at night. A bit disappointed overall but didn't spoil the holiday but doubt if we would use again.

Started our Swiss holiday in Montreux and stayed at this friendly hotel. It is very dated and in need of an update but the staff are friendly and the breakfast was good. Don't miss the almond croissants! Bedrooms are past their best and very compact with strange bathroom configurations. Cramped shower and toilet area with the sink in the main bedroom area. Great views over the lake from rooms on higher floors and easy walking distance to train station and boat pier!

Upon entering the hotel, there was a modern art exhibition so the hotel looked very lively. My wife and I checked-in and the first room we got was nothing at all like what we imagined, the bathroom was old and dirty and the sink is located in the bed room. I ran down to the reception and explained that it was a great difference from the photo and what we got, he understood me and explained that the establishment is very old and rooms differ and changed us to a much better room, slightly larger w...

First of all the name of this hotel is changing to j5 Hotels over the next year. So trying to find the place, was a bit difficult as I was looking for Hotel Helvetie and not the j5 Hotels sign that was above the door. The lobby is very nice - but the rooms are less than desirable. As I was writing this - a drip of water fell on my sisters head. Then another and another. The front desk lady, Joady, was very helpful trying to change us rooms at 9:30pm -- the third room finally was drip free.... Read more

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. The room was big enough as was the bathroom but the decor was from the 60s or 70s I think. Room was very hot with only a fan to cool things down. However, I simply took out the duvet from its cover and slept with the cover over me. Breakfast was Ok - cold meats, nice bread and croissants, yoghu... Read more
