Being up to date is (virtually) everything in Montreux, the most chic spot on Lake Geneva, full of tradition. The youth hostel is very up to date, you just need to see it! The jazzy dining room, the classic seating corner, the rustic foyer and the busy day room. French esprit combined with sophisticated flair, makes many hearts beat faster in Montreux. As do the many leisure possibilities on the ‘Waadtländer Riviera’ – oh-là-là!
The rest of the building’s fixtures and furnishings are modern. Unusual design is demonstrated by the triangular door handles as well as the violet and yellow window frames. The rooms have 2 or 8 beds and whatever else you may need during an overnight stay is always near at hand.
You have to have a meal in this hostel! Not just because of the excellent food, but also the dining room with its modernly designed areas that throw you into scenes ready for the stage, surrounded by large format portraits of numerous great jazz artists. The famous jazz festival takes place in Montreux in July.
The youth hostel’s location speaks for itself: only 20 metres from the lake’s shore, and a few steps away from the wonderful lakeside promenade that, with a leisurely 30 minute stroll, leads directly to the centre of Montreux. It is, therefore, an exclusive location away from the hustle and bustle but nevertheless virtually in the middle of it all!
