Modern Times Hotel

Reviewed 13 January 2018

Great hotel on the highway in Vevey. So, the best location for motorists.

Modern Times Hotel is the only Swiss hotel dedicated to Charlie Chaplin. It is named after the legend’s movie ‘Modern Times’. This comic genius plays an important role in all the hotel rooms where you can see pictures and video clips of his greatest films. Chaplin portraits are in the bar, corridors and guestrooms. There were TV screens in the lounge area showing clips from his films.

Very quiet hotel. The staff is friendly but I felt sometimes they just go mum and don’t convey anything. Probably lack of confidence in English?

One of the things that I loved is that the hotel has drinking water at each floor. Gas or plain is your choice.
Outside, a statue of him sits on a bench while a huge cutout of him adorns the outer wall.

I had mountain view and it wasn’t bad. I wish I had more days to fully experience the hotel facilities.
The museum Chaplin's World is located nearby as well.

Room Tip: Take upper floor for a good view.

I visited it on September. Last time had been on February. Always a very comfortable hotel with nice facilities. The only regular point is the quality of service in the night, but this time I have to recognize the have performed much better. Very recommendable place.

Room Tip: Don't select rooms beside the lifts; there is some noise.

Straightaway, i can say this is a great place to stay. If you can get the third floor on the side with the lake view, your are set. We got the mountain view but no complaints. The staff are very friendly. Anywhere is Switzerland will have mountains and lakes. Hai, from the breakfast bar, understands peoples needs and gets them organised. I needed to take a chocolate drink back to my room and he helped get that done instantly. The hotel is clean, neat, well maintained everywhere. The hotel gives you free passes for public transport for the number of days of stay. That is thoughtful. Station is walking distance. Vevey city is four stops away. Theme, of course, is Chaplin, but that is true everywhere in Vevey. If you are not looking for quaint, but want clean and comfortable, this is the place.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing the lake. Thirdly.

We have friends who live in Vevey, that is why we chose this hotel. It's beautiful BUT we did not expect to have to pay to park the car, when we were guests, we find this really annoying. We did complain when checking out but the young girl on reception just looked at us 'blank'. We also decided NOT to eat breakfast at the hotel, which was disappointing BUT again it was expensive £21 pp (our friends invited us to eat with them) we did check out the breakfast on our last morning, it looked 'ok' but NEVER worth £21pp. We know Switzerland is an expensive country, but we would not stay at the Modern Times hotel again for the above reasons.

Room Tip: room fairly high up with view of mountains.
