“nice but not stunning”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

stayed from sunday 4th to wed 7th may 2014. nice hotel with friendly staff. a little bit dated but very clean and everything you need to be comfortable. very expensive breakfast but i guess thats average for switzerland. Ultra handy or the train station so if you are on foot then its perfect. My room over looked the entrance to the train station which actually proved very noisy with delivery wagons at 6am two mornings.

very good business hotel in the center of vevey.
the brasserie is unique (you feel like in paris), good Food, friendly service.
the small wellness-area is located on the roof of the hotel, the prospect is fantastic.
the hotel is a good starting point around the lake geneva.
i can recommend it ;-)))

Am excellent hotel close to the station and lakeside. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and did everything possible to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. The car elevator is an experience to behold as is the friendly and warm welcome in the brasserie and bar. Price per night on par with Swiss hotels.

Just across the road from the train station and Manor shopping mall makes it a great location for a short business stay. But really their price is ridiculously expensive for this hotel standard. Rooms are small and very average. I've paid less for much better hotels in Montreux, Lausanne and Geneva and I know very well prices in Switzerland. Astra is just not worth paying so much

This is my second time going to Vevey on a work trip and not that I wasn't happy about the other hotel where I stayed, but I decided to just change it up this time and try a different hotel for the fun of it and stay somewhere in the centre of Vevey (although that is a bit meaningless in a small town like Vevey).

I booked the hotel for myself and three other colleagues on the recommendation of the customer we were visiting. Three of us stayed for two nights. The hotel is right beside the train station, so it's very convenient to get here. Service at reception was courteous and check-in was quick. The room was fine and quiet (even with constant music piping out in the hallways). The look is probably getting dated, but everything was clean and everything was in good shape.

I had gotten a ride to Vevey from eastern Switzerland with a colleague and there is parking available (although I am unsure how much extra is costs). But you get to ride a car elevator to the underground parking which we got a kick out of (maybe our lives are a bit boring right now!).

Breakfast was a good spread with mostly cold foods, but lots of choice of breads and croissants, yogurts, fruit, bircher muesli and cheeses. Boiled eggs were available as well. It was included in the rooms I had booked.

There is free Wifi, but it is on the slow side. It's manageable just to catch up on e-mails and the such.

I tried out the gym one evening. It is small, but it wasn't busy so it was fine.There is a hot tub outside the gym on the deck which would have been nice to try out if I had a bathing suit.

On check out, I always get a bit of sticker shock (in a bad way) in Switzerland when I get the bill for hotels. I had forgotten how much it was per night here (248 fr) when I booked so even with the 10% discount I got for an early booking, I thought they had made a mistake. But no, they were correct. I suppose that I don't know if it was worth the price, but for Swiss hotel prices, this is pretty much on par, so it is normal value here.

Since Vevey is a small town, there is not much choice as to where to stay, but I can recommend this hotel and the location give this place a plus too.

The Astra hotel is located in the heart of Vevey not too far from the lake. Good starting point for shopping or sightseeing. The rooms are comfortable but not exciting. As usual in Switzerland the price is high for what you get but overall the deal is OK. The terrace is pretty nice and the service is also pretty good.

This is a pefect hotel for a business traveller, very close to the railway station and within walking distance of the dominat employer in Vevey. Nice, quiet rooms with good soundproofing, airconditioning and very clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and welcoming, be it at the reception or at breakfast (which could offer a bit more). Good value for money.
