    Fabulous

    The location for the Montreux Jazz Festival was perfect. The hotel is less than 100 meters away from the Auditorium and the Park where all the action happens. Villa Toscane is part of the bigger 5 star hotel right in front of it (cant remember the name) but you get access to all the facilities (restaurants, swimming pool, etc). Its comfortable enough and a good option if you plan just to sleep there and spend the majority of the day outside. It was 6 of us so we got both a junior suite and a double room. The suite was very large. The double room was very small.

    The rooms are just ok. Villa Toscane has nothing other than the rooms (you have to cross the street to the other hotel to eat breakfast for example)

    Good

    The biggest surprise was that we were allowed to check in 3 hours prior to our reservation which was a grand treat. It was also nice being able to use the amenities at the 5 star sister hotel. The Villa Toscane itself wasn't very impressive, but it was the cheapest hotel in the area and that is what attracted us for our short getaway. I do think the only reason it has 4 stars is due to its sister hotel because really the Villa Toscane is a 2.5 to 3 star hotel at best. We enjoyed the free travel cards offered by the hotel and made great use of them exploring areas around Montreux. The room itself was spacious enough, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom clean though there was no bathtub. Basically if you are looking for a clean room to sleep in for the night and you are on somewhat of a budget, chose this hotel. If you are looking for something lovely and romantic book elsewhere or pay extra for one of the suites.

    Our room was directly next to the parking with a window that lead to a view of the undercarriages of cars. The cleaning staff was also incredibly noisy in the morning, chatting loudly in the halls and playing loud music before 8am.

    Fabulous

    The bed is very comfortable. Services are ok. Its 10 mins walk to the train station, and they give you a travel card, and you can take bus and train in that area for free

    The room is so small, and there is no internet in the room, and I hate that. Considering what rooms are like, they charge very expensive price.

    hotel was near the city centre and the lakeside (across the road)

    (Single) room was small, on streetlevel so car noise was considerable. No view from the room. Amenities were adequate, but the price of the hotel was too high for what I got.

    The Hotel is linked to the luxury hotel across the road, therefore you go second hand service. Hotel is lit up with floodlights and the nigh shutters in the two rooms we had did not work! The road was noisy and there room was lit up at night

    Poor service and bright rooms for the wrong reason!

    1. There is a resort tax which did not mention on website. 2. Also website said bussiness room has free internet, but the staff said it has to pay. 3. Inconvenient for check-in and out. 4. Not worth the money.

    Very good

    We were given a nice big suite which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel reception desk staff were very helpful when we asked for directions and recommendations on things to do while we were in Montreux.

    We had to go across the street to the hotel everytime we needed to ask something at the reception desk or to use the facilities of the hotel.

    Superb

    We didn't actually stay at Villa Toscane. We got an upgrade to their sister hotel, Royal Plaza Montreux (5-Star), which was right across the street, and we were very glad about that.

    1) It said on the entrance door that you need to check-in and get the key from their sister hotel, Royal Plaza Montreux, which was right across the street, but almost all the guests, including us, did not see the notice. They should put the notice on the reception counter rather than the entrance. We were lucky because when we arrived, there was someone who were coming back from the hotel across with his key and he told us about the check-in method. The person said it took him 1 hour until he saw the notice! We were upgraded to their sister hotel, Royal Plaza Montreux and it was a 5-Star. But the 'continental breakfast' at this 5-Star hotel was far too simple. Some bread and juice, that's it, and that was 14CHF!

    Superb

    Continental breakfast in Royal Plaza across road lavish, and worth 14e just for the ambience and outlook over the lake with sun rising on Alps. Villa Toscane very quiet for a city location - room layout ideal for small family groups wanting 3/4 rooms with spacious shared balcony.

    Have to say re room cleanliness mould was developing on shower frame. While your documentation was clear, several groups hung around reception desk not realising check-in was at Royal Plaza - better notices needed

    Good location

    Guests at Villa Toscane need to check in at the Royal Plaza, a five star hotel accross the road. The staff at the Plaza reception were the rudest, most unhelpful staff I have ever encountered, and I see many as a regular traveller. When I checked in, I was told that the room wasn't ready and I had two wait for two hours, when in fact it had been ready all along. My room at the Villa Toscane wasn't cleaned for two days. Guests, be warned: reception take 200 CHF off your card for the mini-bar when you check in and put it back on when you check out. As such, you are charged withdrawal charges AND exchange rates by your bank, even if you haven't used anything.

    Room was clean and 5 minutes walk to the train station / centre of Montreux. Access to facilities in the 5 star hotel across the road.

    Not for me. It had a 'boarding house' feel with 1970's decor and no air conditioning. I was put in a room on floor 1 which is in the basement under street level which was appauling. The hotel across the road which administers the booking moved me to a room on floor 2 which was better but it was seriously in need of decoration - paint peeling off door / walls / no air-conditioning / bizzarre keys which don't seem to fit the main doors / the door to the mini-bar had the handle broken off. It reminded me of Fawlty Towers but with nicer staff. The shower-room was so small that i had to turn to the side to get into the shower (and I'm not that fat!). Would I recommend this hotel to a friend? No.

    -The roomservice was fine, because it is in fact the roomservice of the 5* Royal Plaza hotel on the other side of the street who is handling it.

    There was no airco, but room was very hot while it was only 23 degrees outside. There is no reception, you can not even enter the hotel but need to cross the street to check-in via the Royal Plaza hotel. Very noisy room (I was kept awake by both my room neighbors and the street noise) looking out on a very dirty deck between the room and the street. The room was small and not clean and there where 3 ant poison boxes in the room. During reservation it promised to have free internet, but you have to go to the other hotel and can not use it on your laptop. There is no free wireless like I was used to in all the other hotels of Montreux Suise Hotels group. For the small difference in price I will for sure choose another MSH hotels next time.
