Fairmont Le Montreux Palace

Top choice hotel in Montreux
Image by Booking.com

Built in a record 18 months in 1906, this stunning example of belle époque architecture maintains a traditional and elegant atmosphere: today it's managed by the luxury Fairmont brand. Entry-level Fairmont rooms are gaudy and cramped for the price: it's worth paying extra for the renovated Deluxe rooms or splurging on a Deluxe Lake View room with balcony (from Sfr479).
