My (new!) favourite hotel in Switzerland !

I booked a "2 nights for the price of 1" special deal with this hotel, plus it came with a free 100 CHF Vaud card, plus a free Montreux Riveria card, plus 20% off by paying with WelQome vouchers. Put it all together, and I thought, "it can't be THAT good..." But it really is.
A perfect central location, right next to the train station (but we didn't hear any trains from our room), with a Coop Pronto 2 minutes away, and a large shopping centre across the road. The lake is a 3-4 minute walk away.
The rooms are large, modern and spacious. Mine came with an Nespresso machine, fridge and small kitchen area... perfect !
There's a cool rooftop bar (with really good music during Afterwork drinks), plus a hot tub area you can privately reserve for 1 hour. Even the bed was super comfortable, and the air conditioning was great in the room.
The staff are lovely. My thanks to Geraldine on reception, for all of her help and advice.
That, plus an amazing breakfast (salmon and fresh strawberries?! Wow!!).
This hotel just exceeded all of my expectations, and before checking out, I had already booked my next trip here with my children, as the (free) Riveria card would let me take them by boat and get entry to Aquaparc and all kinds of other cool places, for freeeeeeee.
Amazing job, guys!

The hotel is just a few steps from the train station. Walking everywhere is well achievable and within range. Pricing very reasonable
Reception staff very welcoming
Bedrooms spotlessly clean and can't be faulted
I have only positives to say
Home from home - great place especially for families!

We were looking for a hotel with kitchenette as we need to cook food for our fussy todder at all times of the day. Astra Vevey was perfect - the room was cozy and the kitchenette had everything we needed to cook. We also asked for a kettle which they provided for us. The location is right outside Vevey train station. They are a 5 min walk to Lake Geneva. They have several supermarkets surrounding them (Coop, Migros) and a Starbucks right next door. And it is 5 mins train journey to Montreux. The view from the top of the hotel is stunning! This was a perfect location for us, the price was very reasonable and the room was amazing - blackout shutters, slept like a baby! Cannot wait to come again!
We loved Vevey and this hotel

Check in by William was excellent. Very efficient and we had a lovely room overlooking the garden at the side. No noise at all from the road or train station. William parked our car for us in their car park with the moving lift. He also very kindly helped me to get on to internet with my tablet which I was having great difficulty with. As mentioned room was good. Large and had lots of information about the area in the room (must unusual these days). I had not ever realised Charlie Chaplin had lived in Vevey. The town itself is pleasant and a walk by the lake is a must. We had glorious warm weather for October and sat by the lake on a very very busy Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately all the restaurants on the Monday were closed at lunchtime. We eat in the hotel restaurant both evenings and the food is excellent. Mariella who was the waitress of the night was very efficient and helpful. Thank you Mariella. The hotel bar is very nice as well with again good staff. Thank you also William and the other reception staff.

Return visit to this hotel and as previously a very good experience. Very clean with polite staff and excellent breakfast. Great location straight across from the train station and a short walk to the lake
