My husband and I visited the Montreux Palace this past weekend for a winter getaway, and while the exterior of the hotel is beautiful, and the location is perfect, the establishment itself cuts a lot of corners and could use some serious refreshing. Here are my thoughts and tips for how the Montreux Palace could improve: The Gym-Extremely outdated machines....

Stayed for a work convention but the staff still treated you like an individual and you could not want for anything. Everyone was so helpful to all requests and needs. Situated on the beautiful lake with stunning views and centrally located. Easy walk from the main train station giving access to all surrounding areas. Would highly recommend this for a...

If you are in Montreux, look no further. Location is within 5 min. walking distance to the train station. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel as well. The room is spacious and offers a beautiful view of Lake Geneva. The few restaurants inside the hotel are also among the best in Montreux. We stayed here...

I would not have enough words to describe how wonderful Montreux is, and what an amazing place the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is. The hotel is located right in front of the lake, which provides the most beautiful view, either from the rooms or the restaurant. I would strongly reccommend that you spend a morning having the most delicious breakfast...

Had a room on the 4th floor and the view was priceless ! Large room with comfy bed and my own NESPRESSO coffee machine. Bathroom needs to be updated... Ordered room service from the restaurant, had to return it as it was not as requested. Service was great.

Stayed here for two nights during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
