“Business hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

The staff were very friendly and professional and very accommodating regarding our parking (which was free, quite a bonus in Switzerland).

Hotel was obviously geared towards business travellers. Rooms were quite small and functional, very clean and very contemporary décor. We had a "garden view" which was basically a small area of lawn! But it was quiet and the bus into the main part of town was just a few minutes walk away. Hotel booking included free bus travel for the duration of stay, apparently standard in Switzerland.

Hotel restaurant was very expensive, and we were told a bit "nouveau cuisine" so we opted to go back into town and were recommended to a great Swiss restaurant, and a table booking was organised for us.

Buffet breakfast was in a room upstairs with (apparently) lake views, but it was pouring with rain all the time we were there, so can't comment on this! I would describe the breakfast as "adequate" and have had better and more extensive breakfasts in many places. Coffee was from a machine which was not good at all.

Don't be put off by the fuel station at the front - it wasn't a problem, and was actually handy to fill up there before travelling back to the airport.

This is a typical well-managed family establishment. Very clean, fully renovated with very nice views if you get the chance for a lake- or mountain view room. The gas station at the entrance doesn't disturb at all. You get a free bus ticket for your stay and explanations about what you could see in the area and there is much to be seen like driving around the Leman or going with the train up to les Pleiades. Parking is free. You pay for the stay but the daily rate isn't exorbitant, it reflects the highly priced Switzerland.

Room Tip: look for the lake- or mountain view.

I stayed at Le Leman for 3 nights. It was a lovely place and the room was very clean. I apparently booked the last lake-facing view, which I totally recommend since the rooms facing the other way might be a little boring (beside the fact that you can then enjoy the view of the lake and mountains). The hotel is quiet, but it sits on a busy traffic street, so you get the sounds of a lot of cars going by. The room size was ok for one person, not too big or small. If it weren't for the fact that I was travelling for work, this would have been perfect. But the only outlets I had available in my room was in the headboard of the bed, which is a little annoying when I needed to work on my computer. There is also no real desk area to work (although there is a table and chair that isn't exactly at the right height to sit and work). This hotel is considered outside the centre, but Vevey is so small that nothing is very far away from anything. I could walk down to the lake and centre in 10 minutes. Overall, a good stay and I can very much recommend this place.

Room Tip: Take a lake view room!

Very friendly hotel. The reception was very welcoming. The guy (owner's son) was very nice and attentive. He gave us everything we needed: a map of Vevey, specifying the address of good restaurants, boat schedule, power adapter. Also provided us cards that give free rides on the segment Vevey - Montreux - Chilion Castle by public transport and 50% discount on the boats.
The hotel is new, modern, with a nice design. The bathroom has all necessary stuff. The hotel is in a quiet location, electronic shutters on the windows, good sleep is guaranteed. A delicious and varied breakfast: cereal, ham, cheese, sausages, croissants, eggs, fruits, coffee and even applesauce.
Next door to the hotel - restaurant. The place seems very popular among the locals, it is full of visitors in the evening. There's a nice atmosphere and a good service.

The hotel has a small free parking for its guests.
Even if you come by car, leave it at the hotel and go to town on the bus. Bus stop in 100 meters from the hotel, time to the center - 8-10 mins. Be sure to take a ride to Chilion Castle and Montreux, it's great. You'll get a lot of pleasure.
I recommend this hotel, especially if you are traveling by car.

I almost forgot: hotel and restaurant are combined with a petrol station! I never seen such neighborhood before, but it's ok, even has some advantages. :)

Don't let the uphill and the gas station depress you as you arrive to the hotel. The staff is always more than willing to help you. They are really there for you. Room with a mountain view is a bit small but rooms with a lake view are just perfect. And they are very clean. Breakfast is good and service very friendly. We got a Montreaux Riviera card from the hotel and didn't have to pay for the public transport at all. The wifi is free as well. We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Le Leman. We also recommend the downstairs gourmet restaurant La Station des Sens but remember to book in advance as it is very popular.

An excellent hotel in Vevey, clean & quiet rooms, and nice view into the lake.
They offer free WiFi and gave us cards to use public transportation for free.
Very friendly staff and specially the owner.
