I stayed at Vevey's International Hostel called the Riviera Lodge. The Riviera Lodge has classic architecture and is among the best Hostels that I have stayed at throughout Europe. There is a classic elevator, hard wood floors, a TV room, a community room with a kitchen and nice balcony to have coffee and enjoy the views. The staff are multi-lingual and friendly.
The Riviera Lodge has a perfect location in downtown Vevey, Switzerland. It is a close walk to catch the Swiss Lake Boat Cruise to Chateaux Chillon, to the Market Place and also to the Train Station.
Hotel Negociants is an extremely well located hotel in Old Vevey. Impeccably run by the Schoellkopf family, not much English spoken here! My room, 105 Chf for a double/single occupancy, was very comfortable with the traditional Swiss featherbed, floor to ceiling french doors that opened out to the street below, a modern well appointed bathroom with very nice shower, and cable tv (I became addicted to BBC Prime on this trip).
The hotel also has a restaurant, with both inside and outside dining. Although I ate their twice, I can't rave as highly about their food as I did about Albergo Navegna's. But I'm a much bigger fan of Italian food than French or German. I will rave about the breakfasts though. Each morning I was served steaming coffee or cappucino, fresh orange juice, cheese and jams and a huge basket of assorted fresh breads. All of this was included in the price of the room.
While not right on Lac Leman, it's a short 5 minute walk to the wonderful promenade. It's an equally easy walk to the train station.
