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,...

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...

We stayed here one night on our trip around the lake. The rooms were very spacious, very clean and overall a nice location. It can get a bit noisy late at night with several night clubs around the area but we just closed our windows and we were fine. I would use this hotel again if I were in the...

Thank you very much :) You are right "street side rooms" may be noisy at night, this is why we offer for only CHF 10.- supplement an upgrade in the Garden side which are firstly very calm. Next time book a superior room to sleep quietly with open windows. We hope see you again in lausanne ! Best regards, Sarah

We stayed here for one night. The rooms were huge and the bathroom was lovely. The bed and pillows were very uncomfy. The bar downstairs was very unorganized - staff were slow making drinks and bringing them to the table. The location of the hotel is great. Very Central and close to some great restaurants and shops. NOTE: there is...

Excellent location and clean facilities.The beds were uncomfortable and the breakfast extremely expensive, one would have expected something more for the money charged. The hotel cannot charge 4 star rates and offer 2 star facilities, with a little more effort the hotel can improve its offering - such as more comfortable beds, moisturizing cream as an amenity
