Breakfast was very expensive and not as indicated in photograph. Coffee and Tea were both really cold and there was no fresh fruit or any hot food available. At the price 8.50 euros this was disappointing.

Really recommend this hotel for everyone. Has good location and nice surroundings. Also if you stay there and want eat good food in good price go to Italian Restaurant (oposite the lift from car park on the right hand side). Staff there are so nice and friendly and you dont spend a lot of money for it.

No problems apart from a sink and shower that didn't drain the water away one day. Room size good and clean. The furnishings did appear a little old fashioned but that may be the French style? Location was perfect for shops bars etc.

We just stayed one night in Evian but wished it could have been longer. It is a beautiful town with lots to do. The Continental team couldn't have been more helpful, the room was spacious and very tastefully breakfast. The breakfast room was well laid out and relaxing. It was the best priced and best hotel of our trip

Owner is American, not British :) Great to know someone who speaks English, in France. Very friendly, very well-kept and safe place. Parking is not a problem, as mentioned before, there is a pretty well-lit and secure lot about a block downhill (north towards Lake Geneva). And the parking fee is very reasonable too ($16 for 24hrs I believe). Definitely recommend this hotel.

We took the advice contained in a previous review and asked for a top floor room with a lake view, and we got it. The hotel is in a convenient location, in a pedestrianised street near plenty of restaurants, and a short walk to the bus station and lakeside. The room was reasonably spacious, clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was very good with food being replenished all the time. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was good value for money and we recommend it.

Over the last 6 monthes, we stoped over 4 days in EVIAN. This hotel is well located, near a secured parking,just downtown, 2 mn walk from le Geneva Lac and the casino. The staff, and the owner offer a kind of "british" wellcome; we liked it.

We had never been to Evian-les-Bains before and loved it. Our stay was for 1 week. We found the Continental to be very central and with very friendly, courteous and helpful owners. Would highly recommend a stay there. Public transport to and from Geneva better by train but a car would be useful to reach smaller villages around.

1st time in Evian les Bains ! Very nice cute little town ! The Hotel is extremely well located in town center ; pedestrian street ; a few yards from the Casino and the Evian spring ! Breakfast is worth it ; you get typical French viennoiseries ! And 1st time I have been served fresh fruits ! Wooow ! Room is correct ; old style furniture like in rest of hotel. Parking in town is quite expensive : €1/hr ; but Charles de Gaule underground parking is somewhat cheaper : €6.70/24hr. Was supposed to get a €4 Venere online discount... but when we paid, the owner said he did not know anything about it... he would only grant a "guide du routard" discount, if you have the guide with you of course !

I booked this hotel thru Venere; here is my input: Pros: Cleanness was good. Free Wi-Fi Internet Price is reasonable compared to other hotels in France. Cons: Reception didn’t speak English well; hence, there was difficulty with communication Room was small. If you are driving by car; avoid this hotel due to lack of free parking near by.

Just stayed for one night. The hotel is right in the heart of Evian, a few roads back from the lakeside. The front rooms look out onto a pedestrianised street with many restaurants. Since there is no double-glazing this could make the rooms a little noisy in the early evenings but the restaurants close by midnight and I wasn't disturbed afterwards. Furniture and fittings older but clean and functional. Bathroom was newer and overall the rooms are decent for the price. Wireless internet was free - just ask at the reception - but apparently didn't work in all rooms, it was fine in mine though.
