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.

The hotel is clean and correct in most areas. Checking out was a little difficult as tall the food and drink accounting seems to be kept in a separate place in the restaurant with provides breakfast and room service meals. The seamless integration of the accounting is seems to be an administrative problem that might be looked into. Otherwise the... More

Staff we're very nice and started conversation about where I live etc. which was showing interest at first but went on for a bit long and person didn't seem to know when to stop. Hotel is modern enough inside but quality of rooms... More

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst on business in Lausanne. The hotel is very close to the train and bus station and looks very nice when entering. The check in was quick and pleasant and the room was very nice also. It was slightly odd having a glass room inside it for the toilet and bathroom but that was... More

Comfortable beds, separate even though I was with my wife. Bathroom has little privacy. Very noisy street so woke up both nights. Staff just rude! Unhelpful! Breakfast poor. Elevators slow. Decoration messy. Good selection of old films on DVD. Clean. Plugs by bed for phone. Wifi slow but free and easy

This is a modern hotel very close (2 minutes max) to the Lausanne train station and the subway/tram which goes to Lake Geneva and connects to other major transit points. One can easily walk to many interesting restaurants, shops, and tourist sites within 15-20 minutes. On the other hand, it is near the train station which has some seedy characters... More

I stayed in this hotel 8 times in 2012. I really like the rooms (comfortable and big), the breakfast and even a mini sauna in 6th floor. Some say for 25 chf is quite expensive but we are in Switzerland and the breakfast is one of the best i saw in Switzerland (more than 80 things to choose). Really impressive... More

I will certainly go back, great position centre Lausanne, rooms are spacious and nothing is missing, good service, also for breakfast (a bit expensive 25.-Sfr) ask for rooms looking the inside of park, more quite at night.
