“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed for a night in January 14. It is a delightful smallish hotel on the edge of the old city. I looked at the map and saw a train station next to it - it has nothing to do with regular trains to Geneve, for example, it serves the Glion route (actually, it's worth a 1-minute trip - just to see the tiny platform and narrow gauge with a third rail for the cog). However, main station is reachable by bus or on foot (it took us 10 minutes with luggage).
The staff was professional and very nice.
We had 3 rooms at the top floor, described by the receptionist as "nicer". Indeed, rooms on floor 4 come with balconies with nice views and sloping ceilings. However, wi-fi signal in 404 was very weak.
All in all, it's a very nice hotel styled after Montreux jazz events and tucked away in a quieter part of town.
Would stay there again

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

This hotel has style and the room we stayed in was very spatious and elegant (we got an upgrade however due to a mixing of dates). The price-quality ratio was unbeatable compared with other hotels in the region. The location is very nice, close to Montreux lake and to Chillon castle (5 min by car). The WiFi connection was very good in the rooms and the breakfast had many choices (not only the typical French breakfast, but also cheese and ham). The only small downside was the parking: only two parking places belong to the hotel (against a fee) and the nearby public parking place is limited to maximum 3 hours during day (and again, it's a paid parking), thus if you come during a crowded period, it may be difficult to find a parking place nearby.
The staff was very nice and welcoming and speaking good English.

We only stayed one night in Tralala, which was a shame as it was a beautiful little boutique hotel in the heart of Old Town. The room was a good size, with a great bathroom and views of the lake. Would definitely recommend.

Cool design, comfortable beds, ideal location.

Service: Excellent!!! Staff was extremely friendly, helpful and fun both times I stayed here. Quick check-in, quick check-out

The hotel has bikes to rent too.

Breakfast: The breakfast was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Simple, but everybody finds something to their liking. Even eggs which i think is unusual for a 3 star hotel in Europe. :)

Rooms: 3s-es: stylish, simple, small. :)
S-Rooms are tiny, L-rooms not much larger. Bathrooms are small too. BUT they have everything you need. And anyway who cares! You should't be spending your time in a hotel room anyway when you're in beautiful Montreux.

Parking: parking is available, but the hotel only has 2 places. We havent booked in advance, still both times found free parking right around the corner.

I have been here twice already, and will definitely stay here again next time I come to Montreux/Vevey/Vinorama.

Good value for money and an overall good experience.

This was the cheapest hotel of our entire trip in Switzerland (19 days, 6 different cities), and it had I think the best value for the money. It is a little out of the center of the town, but there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel.

The good:
The rooms are small but have hot running water and clean sheets. It's a reasonably well located establishment. Getting to and from the town centre is easy. Bus service 206 (which you can board from the CFF train station or La Paix stops by every 20 minutes and is a loop service. A welcome drink is provided when you arrive (a nice touch) and the female proprietress speaks good English (difficult to find in this part of Switzerland). Buffet breakfast goes for CHF 15 and you can have quite a hearty tuck in. The male proprietor speaks less English but is always helpful.

The so-so:
The wi-fi connection is wonky in some of the rooms (like the room I stayed in) but there is a make-shift foldable seat near the lift where you can plant yourself if you don't mind other guests walking past you as you surf. The aesthetic of the hotel decor is quite urbane but there is nothing remarkable about it.

The bad:
Given there is no A/C in the room (rather common in most buildings in Europe), you'll have to open the sole window if you want to avoid feeling claustrophobic. My room was facing the road where 206 stops by every 20 minutes and because these buses run on diesel engines, it can get really loud (I was on level 2). There is also a lot of traffic on this street even at night, especially motorcyclists. If you are a light sleeper, take note. There is a safe but no refrigerator in the room, so if like most people you decide to get your dinner from the supermarket one evening to save money, you'll have limited options.

On balance, Tralala is fairly good value for money if you consider what they are charging you relative to the cost of living in Switzerland. Montreux was actually my favourite part of Switzerland this trip. It makes a good base to see the other towns on the lake like Lausanne, Vevey and to visit Castle Chillon.

Dear guest,

We thank you very much for sharing your experience and concerns with us. Our main goal being to improve our quality of service, each comment is very useful.

The Tralala Hotel was built in 1900 in the euphoria of the "Belle Epoque" as a hostel, so the foundations are equipped with quite small rooms.

You choose to come during the hight season but you can enjoy lower price at other time of the year. We always do our price at the best rate able.

We are always glad to spend some time chatting with the clients, and that's what we do everyday to hear about their day, experiences just as their needs and comments . Sometime we feel like our guests are searching for tranquility and privacy, so we try to respect this and dont't want to be intrusive.

We will be delighted to have a nice chat with you the next time you'll come. So I hope you'll give us the chance to repair our mistake and visit us again.

Please remind us, to give you a Room, which does not face the street. :)

Till then, we stay with our kindest regards from Montreux,

Gianna Trox
