Unique Quality: The Hotel
The Hotel Splendid is located in the heart of the bay of Montreux, in front of Lake Geneva (Lac Leman). It was built at the end of the 19th century and its opening was in 1904. It was in 1934 that the establishment was re bought by Mr. Vital Hausmann. Since then, it has stayed within the family. The third generation of this family started to renovate the building in the year 2000, getting the inspiration from the documents dated at the beginning of the 20th century in order to bring back the charm of that time and at the same time integrating the last technologies such as Satellite TV and Internet which is free for the clients.
The beauty of its location opposite Lake Geneva, and the smoothness of its climate, has made Montreux the pearl of the Riviera of Vaud. The town is alive both by day as by night, especially thanks to its festivals, (Montreux Jazz Festival, Rose d’Or, Festival du Rire, Rencontres Chorales, etc.) its flowered docks, its terraces and casino and its Hotel Belle-Epoque. Multiple excursions are possible, especially to the Rochers-de-Naye, at 2000m, and of course to the famous castle of Chillon, built on the lake around the year 1000. Montreux allows us to ski and/or practice golf, always keeping in mind the numerous walks we can take just 15 minutes away from the downtown.
Many historic characters have had a stop at the Hotel Splendid in Montreux. Among them, Lenine ( in 1908), Charlie Chaplin, the Yes, the Rolling Stones and Eddie Constantine, without leaving out the numerous famous names of jazz and of music in general who wither live in this region or who come regularly for their festivals.
