I have been there for 4 days a few years ago, I got a really good room, with high standard equipment and very clean. Buffet at breakfast was not as good as the room. Location is perfect also if you need to go around since train station is at waking distance and you are near main amenities in Lausanne. I...

This is a well-designed, modern, sleek, though slightly impersonal, business-oriented hotel ideally situated close to the railway station. But, oddly, rules trump customer service when it comes to the hotel's lacklustre restaurant. My second night was a drizzly stay-at-home evening and the hotel';s restaurant was nearly empty. For one reason or another I didn't like the small tables I was...

Returned today from a weekend stay at Hotel Alpha-Palmiers. The hotel itself is located literally 100metres from Lausanne Train Station and was extremely easy to find. The staff were very helpful and happy to help. The hotel itself is very modern and clean. From reading other reviews I noticed a noise problem, prior to arriving I requested a high floor...

We stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend. Room was very clean. Beds comfortable. Fantastic water pressure. Poor lighting in the room with bedside lamps, a freestanding lamp and a desk light only. Staff helpful and friendly. Great location as handy to train station and main centre. A good base for exploring the area. The most memorable part of...

Dear Sir, Thank you for choosing to spend your time with us. With about CHF 10.- in supplement we can suggest an up grade on the quite garden side as, during the weekend the street side might be very noisy. We hope to welcome you again in our hotel. Best wishes

I regularly travel to Lausanne, and it is the first time for me to pick this hotel. And it is a cut above the other hotels I stayed in. A pleasant surprise! I also enjoyed the dinner at their Thai restaurant. Definitely, I will stay here again.

Let's start with the rooms - a little dated but spacious and clean. Comfortable bed results in a good sleep but the penalty I had to pay was a two-lift journey to my room! Look at it this way - that means you're not facing the street! The standard and upkeep of the communal areas is average and the colour...

I have to say that rooms are confortable and it´s location is very convenient, although is very noisy if you get a street room. They do have free wireless... when you can connect, which is usually very early in the morning and late at night, don´t even try during the afternoon. Will I stay again, provably not.

This is an OK hotel if you stay for 2 or 3 nights, but gets very annoying if you return every week like I did on several business trips. The location is good, the hotel is a 5-minute walk away from the train station, although it is a very steep street so if you have a lot of luggage you...

We didn't expect the triple room to be so spacey. The staff was very good, location extremely convenient though in any other country I would prefer to stay further from the station. I can complain about trifles (like an iron or kettle that would only turn on when a staff member was around ;-)), but overall we had a very...
