          • Family with children

            Nothing much really except the the hotel was near the casino where our daughter graduated from him. However, breakfast was good and the staff there were efficient and obliging.

            The staff dont speak English and never made an attempt to understand us. We booked a room for 4 adults and my 26 year old son had to sleep on a shaky, extra bed. The room was never made altho we stayed for 2 nights hence no fresh towels, soap or bath gel. There wasn't even a shower cap. The shower was soooooooooooo miserable with so little water. There was no ironing facility as we were attending a graduation ceremony and our packed clothes needed ironing. No coffee or tea facility for the ridiculous sum we paid not even a bottle of drinking water!!!!

            The hotel is very clean, comfortable and decent. Its location is very convenient. The room prices are affordable.

            One thing the hotl should arrange soon: free wifi in all rooms. At the moment, it is available only in the lobby.

            Beautiful hotel. Stayed at the quadruple room, very spacious. Love the continental breakfast. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The only hotel that I could find from the internet that doesn't charge for children below 12 years.

            I enjoyed my stay at Helvetie as I have done for the past 5 years.The rooms are comfortable and homely,the breakfast fulfilling.The staff are very friendly and accomodating.

            The vast increase in price for the room compared to previous years.

            Nice view from the window, comfortable room and bed and very helpful staff.

            Car spaces are below ground and a bit inaccessible. Staff were willing to assist with bringing up luggage.

            The old time favourite that reminisces the early 90s. It seems to have been recently refurbished though. The bed was very very comfy and the balcony was nice, even though there was a building blocking the sea view. We quite like the classic mood and tone of the hotel.

            There should be a kettle and tea set for the guests too, that would make the stay even more pleasant.

            Location is good with bus stop just right beside of hotel. Although it is old, the hotel is actually quite well maintained and clean. Got to give credit to the house keeping in maintaining the old place well.

            Give an eerie feeling about the hotel, especially the room. Few portraits around the hotel also give a spooky feel about the place. It is just unavoidable to prevent irritating sound when walking along the wooden floor

            Central location near to the lakeside. Charming building with lots of period features. Room was a good size and the beds comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient. Good choice for breakfast. Availablity of private parking.

            Room cleaning was not as thorough as expected. Some travelers may find the lack of air conditioning ( electric fan is the alternative provided) a problem in hot weather.

            The location is great within 2 blocks from the Casino and the Lake Leman. And just outside is the bus stop that takes you to the Chateaux Chillon in about 10min. Also in a 10min walkind distance from the train station.

            The night shift receptionist was not very nice and not even helpful, he did not offer us the mobility card that we were suppose to get for free (we had to ask for it in the morning, and luckily the morning shif receptionist was very friendly and helpful), and when asked for a restaurant for a late dinner he did not even mention the room service.

            Liked everything about this hotel, especially the old world elegance. The room was lovely with a large flat screen tv, extremely comfortable bed and beautiful bed linen. We had a problem with the tv not working but it was quickly attended to. Breakfast is taken in an elegant dining room with crisp white table cloths.

            Limited hotel parking. Better to phone and reserve as parking can be expensive in Montreux.
