The historical, family-run Splendid hotel in Montreux was built in 1904 and offers panoramic views over Lake Geneva and free Wi-Fi in all of the spacious rooms. Rooms at the Splendid hotel come with a flat-screen TV with cable channels and contain a private bathroom. Some units have a lake view and come their own terrace or balcony. Delicious Swiss and international cuisine is served in the restaurant and the café is a cosy place to relax. The Splendid hotel is Montreux's only 3-star hotel on the lakeside. It occupies a historic building and therefore does not feature air conditioning. The Freddy Mercury Memorial Statue is 300 metres away. The conference centre and the train station are close by. Free local public transport is provided when staying at Hotel Splendid.
worn and tired, expected more for the money, especially in the off season.
excellent location good value
This is not a complaint but carpet could have been cleaner. Breakfast not interesting. Bread for toaster would have been a good idea.
Water view, folksy, old-world atmosphere, position on the lakeside, proximity to the station, free bus pass
Breakfast lacked the variety of other similary-priced hotels
My friend and I came in late afternoon overheated and frustrated as we had been on the train since 6:30 AM and were exhausted. Yvan, who was at the front desk, calmed us down, helped us with our luggage, and then sent up two glasses of wine for us. He suggested a wonderful restaurant that evening, and kept our luggage the next day while we toured around. I asked about making a long distance call to my daughter in France and he said Benny would help me with that as he wouldn't be there. The next day when I went down and asked Benny about it, Benny made the call for me on his cell phone and said there was no charge. The staff made me feel like I was staying with family as they were so accommodating. I will gladly stay there again.
Comfortable room, very nice breakfast, excellent location, helpful staff
The hotel is in a great location and is reasonably priced given how expensive the city can be. The room was very clean and comfortable. A good breakfast was included.
The staff were polite and helpful, and importantly for me, could communicate reasonably well in English. The room, the showers and the linens were clean and well-maintained.
I understand that rooms in this hotel do not have AC, and on top of that the courtyard-facing room I was in did not have proper ventilation, so even at midnight it was rather stuffy and warm.
Fantastic central location in Montreux, with free wi-fi and included breakfast - an excellent place to stay when visiting this lovely town by the lake. Plus only a few minutes' walk from the main station!
Only minor points - the shower in my room was a little small (but manageable), and it is best not to leave breakfast too late (as finite food selections).
The hotel is located at the most beautiful spot in montreux. The staff was very helpful that he recommended the best cheese fondue in town! Strongly recommend for everyone the experience hotel splendid!! I will surely stay here next time!
Bathroom is small.
