This hotel is very conveniently located, just a few minutes from the train station and a metro. Our biggest disappointment with the hotel was the check out experience. We prepaid our stay with Expedia and knew that all we had to pay at check out was the city taxes. When we came to the clerk she said we have to... More

In general i like this hotel after its restauration. But I still cant understand how unfortunate it is that the restaurant staff speak no single word of English in a modern and global world. Apparently it's not an internatinal hotel yet.

Our office team nearby recommended this hotel. The rooms were quite generously sized by European standards- would have been comfortable for quite a long stay. I was originally in room 304. No complaints at all except it was 35 degrees and the air conditioning wasn't quite as strong as I'd hope. But it was something so can't complain too much.... More

Hotel is located close to the trainstation of Lausanne but also close to the city center. Walking distance to visit the center and a lot of restaurants. Hotel restaurant is good especially if you like Asian food. Drinks at the bar are quite expensive especially a gin-tonic. Hotel rooms are nice as long as they face to the garden or... More

My host at the Ecole Polytechnique Federal selected this hotel for me, and I was thankful the hotels next to the EPFL were full, as this property is located 5 minutes walk from the main railway station and a convenient M2 metro station. The walk from the main railway station (we arrived by train from Geneva [Geneve]) required us to... More

We stayed overnight here as part of a Cosmos tour and had a very good experience. The hotel has an interesting design and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. There is some air conditioning, or you can choose to open a large sliding wondow. The bathroom is integrated into the room with glazed windows separating it from the living-sleeping... More

The hotel was clean and well maintained. We had a room facing the garden which was peaceful. The hotel has a minimalistic theme running through. The room, particularly the bed was small and the sliding door of the water closet wouldn't close fully however on a positive note appreciated the Staff for being warm.

We had a wonderful time at Alpha-Palmiers. The room overlooked the beautiful garden in the middle of the hotel. It was clean, minimalistic and spacious for the area. It was near the train station with three different restaurants. It functioned as both a great family hotel but also works for business meetings.
