Having in mind how expensive are hotels in Switzerland it's nonsense to discuss the value for money.

This hotel is actually the liberty style villa transformed into small and lovely hotel as a part of Swiss Q Hotels. It's across the Royal Plaza Hotel where is also situated the reception and all amenities You can have as a hotel guest (pools, spa, wifi). So, at Your arrival do not be confused how to enter the hotel (because we were wondering) - cross the intersection (and very busy) road to reach the reception in the Royal Plaza Hotel. The staff is very kind and friendly but the hotel policies are a little bit restrictive - for example in order to get deposit they actually block your credit card for that amount (and it wasn't unblocked immediately after we left). There isn't free hotel parking - there is small street parking place and for using large one hotel parking you should be charged (something about 25 CHF per day).

We stayed in double room which was spacious and nice but the bathroom extremely small in old-fashion style (need for sure some refreshment and better ventilation). The cleaning was pretty good and average sleeping quality especially due to noisy position of the hotel.

Free wi-fi? Only in the lobby of Royal Plaza Hotel while in the rooms across the street the signal was to poor to have any stable connection.

It takes about 15 minutes by walk to reach center of Montreux i.e. the central square where is Shopping center and Freddy Mercury statue.

The hotel is dated and needs an upgrade. The bed was comfy and cosy. WiFi access was hopeless it should not be advertised that it has coverage everywhere as we constantly had problems logging in and using it. We did complain about it but nothing got done to fix it. We did not even get a call with an update. Same went for a heater that we wanted one of the evenings or scales to weigh our baggage. I guess they are minor issues as the room was quiet and access from the hotel to the bus was easy. The staff were friendly and nice to talk to.

Stayed here for 3 nights from 15th May. This is just a (s)hell of a hotel, run by remote control from Royal Plaza opposite. When we landed in the middle of the night, check-in staff at Royal Plaza insisted on taking a 300 CHF deposit (inspite of having paid for the room in advance) and promptly blocked my credit card.You have to cross a busy intersection road (yes busy with fast cars and blazing siren police cars even at 11 pm at night) to reach Villa Toscane. You need to open the main gate yourself and there is no staff around. The rooms are OK, but the bathrooms are tiny. Noise from the road comes right in your room. Most important, even after checkout they have not unblocked the deposit that they had taken till today(5 days).Am having a harrowing time trying to contact them from Interlaken. The most pathetic experience across all hotels in Switzerland.

Room Tip: Not a hotel, more of a self-stay hostel charging hotel rates. Stay away. Much better options availab...

This is a lovely hotel - very spacious and quality surroundings. The breakfast in the 5* hotel across the road was excellent and very good value if booked with the room.
On the downside free wifi is only in the hotel across the road, the pillows were very flat and the third bed wasn't very good- a poor sofa bed. None of these things would stop me recommending this hotel. Also the tv was on it's last legs but hey - you don't go on holiday to watch tv. The swimming pool was good.
The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the station - I saw some misleading info regarding this and expected it to be closer.

I booked 2 rooms in this hostel during the winter season (December).
First impression was not very good: you have to check in at the plaza in the other side of the road, which is... strange to say the least.
However, the rest was very good. We booked this hotel for 120chf average for each room, and it was a real bargain.
One room for 2 people + 1 baby, was located on the first floor, and was magnificent. HUGE room, well maintained, great bathroom, a real deal!
The second room, booked for 1 person, was not that great, though still decent. Much smaller (in line with switzerland standards), not that beautiful, though clean and functional.

Breakfast is served in the plaza on the other side of the road, and, as usual in this kind of hotel, is way too expensive (40 chf for a breakfast come on... that's what I would pay for a dinner in Geneva...) A good tip is to take a "cafe croissant" in the bar on the top, where you can enjoy the outstanding view, while being charged 5-10chf...

You have access to the spa and swimming pool of the plaza, which is a real plus.

The hotel has an amazing location, which makes for most of its value. Situated right next to the lake, at walking distance from the center.

All in all, the hotel would not deserve 4 stars, though the price we paid is not 4 stars neither... Despite some inconveniences, I would definitely come back to this hotel thanks to its location, and to the condition of having ~130chf price range per night.

Room Tip: first floor room was much better than ground floor...

I stayed in this hotel only for one night and I'm happy about it. The check in is at the royal plaza opposite the street. The room that I got was a joke (room 209). It was tiny and dark and with a view on a wall! I booked it for 2 people but honestly there isn't even space for one.. Staying in this hotel feels like being in a usual budget hotel. There is no staff around so you feel pretty helpless as a guest if you need something. No value for the money. Montreux has many more hotels on that price range therefore I would not recommend staying in this hotel.
