I no longer live in Montreux, but I did for some years. Since I left, I go back at least once a year (usually more), because it still feels like home. I go to hotels because I don't want to disturb friends that I still have, since I usually go back with my family. We always try a different hotel every time we come to Montreux, and we've pretty much been to all of them. This is one of our favorites and in a few months we will go back. The location is perfect, the building is beautiful, typical historical. It will take you back in time, it's just speechless. Beds are really comfortables and the rooms are spacious and you don't hear any sound. Also, a plus is that all rooms are exterior (this is one of the things that we like the most). Staff is also very helpful! As a person that has been to every hotel in Montreux, I really recommend it. Within this kind of budget hotels, this is by far the best among the others that you have for more or less the same price. See you this Christmas! :)

We were delighted with this hotel. We knew from their website that the hotel is in process of remodeling and we were delighted with a very large room and giant bathroom. Location is extremely handy to the train station, and at the time we were there, the Christmas Market was in full swing. Some of our favorite meals were at the Christmas Market! Like most Montreux hotels, J5 offers guests a complimentary bus pass good during one's visit. Bed was comfortable, staff was very friendly and helpful, and we were just happy. We would stay here again should we find ourselves back in Montreux.

The staff at reception is very friendly and helpful! A bit of an older hotel without aircon, but heating is sufficient. The bathroom is small but has what is needed. The travel passes provided really helps with sightseeing, especially when it is raining. It would have been nice to have a kettle with cups and coffee in the room. But if you ask staff at reception, the will give you a flask with boiling water and cups. We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. They gave us a room with a great view! We didn't opt for the breakfast, so I cannot comment on that.

Needed hotel for Christmas market : booked this hotel at an amazing rate (considering it’s Montreux and Christmas season), and can really only say good stuff. At this price, expectations are accordingly, and I’ve paid muuuch higher prices for very awful stays. Room was spacious, clean, beds were good as were pillows and linen. The whole building is still really authentic old style: personally I genuinely love this, even if it is a bit worn: it should be at this age: beautiful wooden floors, old furniture, classic vibe, as long as the essentials are good, and they were. Well issolated room (zero neighbour noise). Reception was warm and friendly. Location is fantastic: to me it was exactly what I was hoping to find and will book again when wanting to go out in Montreux: excellent value proposition !
