Astra Hotel Vevey
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Vevey
Reviewed 18 April 2011

I have stayed at the Astra Hotel many times in the past ten years. It is a reliably comfortable hotel, ideally situated right next to the main railway station and in easy walking distance of the village and the lake. Many of the customers are business visitors to the Nestle head office so you are likely to hear many languages spoken at the breakfast table. Speaking of breakfast do not miss the great pastries and especially the fresh brioche. In the evening try their daily special in the restaurant. The rooms at the Astra look a little tired but they are clean and comfortable and the service si always efficient, friendly and polite. It is evrything I look for in a business hotel and considerably better value than some of the more touristic lakeside oferings.

Room Tip: Look over the square in front of the hotel

The service is great and while the room could do with some 'updating', it was clean and quiet.

Breakfast is pretty good but they could occasionally change things around a bit to keep longer-term visitors interested.

A big positive aspect of this hotel is the Wellness Center with gym, outdoor jacuuzzi and three types of sauna/steam rooms.

Recommended especially for the service and location.

Astra hotel is rated ****S. I would rather give a ****--!

The hotel has all the amenities that a 4 star should have, but the sleep quality was really poor. The spring mattresses were unconfortable. Heating pipes are exposed, which mean that you hear the (loud) flux of water running through during night.

Service was up to standard as the breakfast was.

The service (Front Desk and room service from the adjoining restaurant) at this property is one of the best I've found. Front Desk charged my mobile and offered area to freshen up due to my morning arrival before room was ready, and general professional nature about them and patience with all my inquiries.

Location is across the street from train station, easy walk to the Lake, Plaza Marche, and shopping. (I was NOT bothered by any evening train noise).

Hotel is across the street in one direction from the Vevey train station, and across the street in another direction from the #1 public bus that can take you to all the towns along the "Montreux Riviera." Your hotel can even provide a pass to make the bus free of charge. The lakefront restaurants, ferry landing, and shopping areas are all a 10-minute walk away.

The Astra rooms are modern and convenient, if bland. It is largely a business hotel. The reception staff were all helpful, though not overly forthcoming with many details on restaurants or excursions.

Breakfast included in the room rate is a generous buffet, includijng good breads pastries, and rolls, fruit, cold cuts, cheeses, soft boiled eggs, yogurt, and cereals.

My room faced a main street, and there was some traffic noise into the wee hours.

I was annoyed that there is a charge for room wifi, one must buy a card to activate the service. There is also a charge of $12 per 30 minutes, to use the computer in the business center. Given the price of the room, I tought that was nickel-and-diming.

We spent a nice weekend at the Astra Hotel in Vevey Montreux in a modern an excellent room. The restaurant has a very good choice of food (local and international) and very good wines also from the region. On the top-roof they have a new spa which has a jacuzzi outside with a fantastic view on the surroundings of Vevey.
