Hôtel Masson

Charm on the swiss riviera

Hôtel Masson

It’s not surprising that stars like Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and Keith Richards owned houses in Montreux. The town is a sophisticated haven, yet a hub for talented artists. The boulevard along the banks of Lake Geneva and the annual Montreux Jazz Festival are world-famous. Hôtel Masson, a beacon of fine hospitality, offers truly magnificent views across the lake to the Swiss and French Alps beyond. The hotel’s rich historical atmosphere, from the Belle Époque décor to creaking parquet floors, features the original furniture. Hôtel Masson is the most historic Hotel in the entire area of the Montreux Riviera. Classified as regional architectural heritage, as well as honored from ICOMOS for its outstanding conservation and hospitality, the Masson is a contemporary witness of almost 200 years of hotel history. When the weather is fine – and it often is-, you can enjoy breakfast on the balcony, with a view across Lake Geneva

Sincerity and local specialities

Restaurant Elise

Restaurant Elise is all about authenticity. You can taste it in the jam made with fruit from the hotel’s own garden, or the home-baked bread. The menu features as many local specialities as possible, which form the basis of French and Italian dishes. The restaurant interior takes you back a century. The stylish fabric of the curtains, the inlaid wooden floor, the delicate wallpaper, and the modest tables with their slender legs – it all speaks of a rich past that is lovingly cherished.
