Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with some friends, the rooms are comfortable and definitely not outdated. The location is great, easy access to the Lausanne train station and Lausanne center with all the shopping (5 min walk). The staff are friendly and welcoming. The thai restaurant is really really good, I believe the chefs are Thai and they...

Second time I've stayed here.. this time one night with tour group. Love this hotel due to its convenience to the train (but 3 min steep uphill walk to the hotel), plenty of eateries close by, and only 4 train stops to Ouchy on the waterfront.. lots of cafes/restaurants. Rooms are spacious and clean, kettle with coffee/tea, great shower over...

I spent here three nights and while the location was good (in the center, very close to the train station), I has generally poor experience with this place. My room had absolutely no view and the window was looking towards the hotel's walls. The room itself was nothing special. Everything seemed old, the visible parts of the room were clean,...

Dear Maksim B, Many thanks for your comment. We have a few rooms looking toward a wall (located at 8m distance). You are right that the view from there is not the best. But those rooms have the great advantage to be very quite and sold at a lower rate. You are right, that we should make that clear at...

We stayed one night with our family in this hotel. It was very quiet and the rooms are sleek, modern and very spacious. Very nice to have amenities such as an iron and kettle in the room. If you are coming by train this is very close to the train station. A nice plus was the movie theater accross the...

The Alpha Palmiers is basically our only contract hotel in Lausanne so if I have to stay over night on a business trip, this is my only option. And there's nothing serious to complain about. As a matter of fact it is a very good city/business hotel. However, after I had been staying there approx 20 times and had to...
