“Bill Clinton walked in the door”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Seriously! I was sitting in the lobby sipping a G&T and the 42nd President of the United States strolled in the door. That is the sort of clientele this hotel attracts. It really is excellent. It has a great mix of old world style throughout the hotel while at the same time having contemporary, modern and rather sizeable rooms and not just by european standards. I mean the rooms really are big! The cigar bar just off the lobby is sure to please even the most discerning of cigar enthusiasts (being a former cigar smoker myself). Great central location near to the train station and the major areas of town. The staff were exceptionally helpful and willing to bend over backwards to meet any request. Would certainly recommend this place and will certainly stay there if ever in Lausanne again.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room with a view of the lake if they are available. The views are breathtaking.

This Old grand dame continues a great tradition of service. Great SPA. To walk the downtown area, the location is the best! An experience unto itself!

Some hotels at this level are uncomfortable - too full of themselves and arrogant if you don't fit in. This is different - it is what I imagine a hotel used to be like and should be like, before world brands and market segments, etc., but with all the modern and touches that one would expect. However, it does come at a price - but here, it really is worth it. Staff greet you where ever you go, nothing is too much trouble, the concierge is like your favourite uncle, friendly and confortable. The location is great - in hilly Lausanne, you are half way up the hill, with the train station just down a bit and 'centre ville' just up a bit. If i had only one place to stay before i died - this would be in the top five!

Room Tip: Go for one of the rooms in the old building.

wow what a breathtaking hotel with a lot of old world charm. try the japanese restaurant near by, excellent. They have one level with all refurbished rooms, which were some of the most beautiful rooms which i have ever seen. this is not a stadard hotel, so be ready to expect something different. service overall was excellent as well

Room Tip: ask for a room on the level which has refurbished rooms level 3.

Well, for any of you in dire need of rejuvenation: one solid choice is a tandem massage with your partner at the Lausanne Palace. The greater massage room accommodating couples boast showers, steam-room, sauna and, the massage is well done. Worth the high ticket price.
