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.
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.
