The room we stayed in at the Hotel Alpha-Palmiers was very clean, roomy, and comfortable. Conveniently, the hotel is a very short walk to the train station, and compared to other hotels in the area, it's also quite inexpensive. We would certainly consider staying there again. Thank you!

I was on my way back from a conference and had the chance to stay in Lausanne for a night - for old times' sake - and as my usual place was fully booked, I went for this one. It was a bit of a walk to get to my room (using two elevators), but worth the effort. The room... More

We stayed one night with a bus group. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The dinner and breakfast at the hotel was very good. The staff was very helpful. The train station is right down the street from the hotel,

This is a great hotel with very large rooms and bathrooms. We stayed in a room overlooking the lovely courtyard and it was very quiet. The restaurant is good also there is a nice bar across the street. There are nice shops in walking distance. We enjoyed our time.

As a former resident of Lausanne, I recently had the chance to stay here on a recent trip. Overall, it's a really good value for money. The room is quite large with a nice-sized bathroom. I'd also recommend one of the rooms facing the inner courtyard. Very quiet, and a nice view. From a location standpoint, it can't be beat.... More

Since it was my first time in Europa my first thought about the hotel when I saw it from the outside was "oh my gosh, it is so old!" but for my surprise the inside was pretty modern. Breakfast is just ok but they have a good restaurant, very pricey (don't forget that you're in Switzerland though).

We stayed here for a night and did not mind staying a few more nights if our schedule had permitted. Being a short walking distance from the train station and metro station, connection to all parts of the city was a breeze despite a steep climb to the hotel entrance. The hotel was very clean and access to facilities and... More

This was a very modern decorated hotel. My husband referred to it as it being decorated by a college student because of the style. It was clean and comfortable, and we stayed there because of the proximity of the train station. The breakfast buffet was also very good.

A terrible hotel, hardly slept. Got a very noicy room on the 1st floor. Workers started outside at 06:30. Not possible to sleep at all, not to mention the air condition. Makes more noice than a small airplane. I arrived quite late, no bar service at 23:30? Next time I'm in Lausanne, I will surely look for better accommodation.

we really enjoyed our staying at Alpha-Palmiers. the rooms are wide, very well furnished and comfortable. the hotel is close to the old town, in a very ventral position, and approx 20 min walk by the lake.
