The design of the hotel is definitely interesting especially seeing the location in an older and classical neighborhood. Big disappointment about the parking...which is on the hotel premises but you have to pay extra (and quite a lot). The hotel was not that easy to find. The room was nice but the idea of the bathroom that is almost in... More

The Alpha Palmiers is located almost directly across the street from the Lausanne Train Station and adjacent to the Metro, so it is very convenient. You can walk to the train or Metro station in less than 5 mins. There's also a good variety of restaurants available. The hotel is located perhaps 100 meters above the main street on which... More

After staying in historic, old but wonderful hotels and gasthofs in Europe, we truly enjoyed the very modern Alpha Palmiers. Located within minutes from the train station, it was easy to find and access, even though it was a vigorous uphill slant. The room was spacious and beautiful and quite unique. The bathroom with shower was even spacious. In the... More

I've stayed here on many business trips. Location is central - right next to the main train station and on the metro, breakfast satisfactory, rooms spacious and comfortable but rather basic. Can get noisy if your room fronts onto the street. Gym is small with limited equipment and no air conditioning.

This place was fine. We stayed here for 6 nights, using Lausanne as a base to do day trips from in the region. The location is great, although it is up a pretty steep hill from the station. The staff were very professional and nice. The room was fine, but the carpet was old and kind of icky. The amenities... More

The first room I was given was not at all to my liking and certainly sub-standard: Dark, no direct dayight, a step down from the corridor - just not what you would expect in a four star hotel. I did not accept this room. Without any hesitation I was given another one: Bigger in size, luminous, with lots of daylight... More

Room on second floor opened up to the street across from restaurants for great people watching. Not difficult to find, near railway station and shopping but expect lots of hills. Good size room, bathroom has frosted glass walls.

We stayed at the hotel for a week on a business trip as part of a large group. Nothing much in the area was open Sunday but the staff directed us to an Italian restaurant nearby that was okay for a casual dinner. There is no store or market in the hotel and the restaurant is pricey, so had to... More

Stayed for just one night in a 'triple' room as part of a package so we didn't choose the hotel as such. The 3rd bed was a roll-away which was fine and comfortable and the room was large enough to accommodate it. Nice bathroom and good tea/coffee making facilities which we didn't get at other 4* hotels on the rest... More
