After many years of absence I returned to this nice Palace in the heart of Lausanne and found back a perfect service starting from the dorman over the concierge to réception.The director did remain the same as when I was there some 30 years ago and that is the signe of a well managed timeless atmosphère ...can only recommend

I stayed at the Lausanne Palace & Spa last week and loved my stay! The rooms were beautifully refurbished with a lot of taste & style. The service was great as always. I highly recommend it. I really enjoyed the buffet breakfast.

We visit this hotel each year for a few days since our daughter works in Geneva. This year we spent five days at the Palace. We had a very nice room on the 2nd floor, spacious and with a impeccable bathroom. The service was excellent, free wi-fi and in room bar. The bed was very comfortable and the room made...

The hotel is very downtown and has nice rooms with beautiful view on the lake but the rooms were noisy, we had connecting rooms and the doors between the rooms didn't stop the noise. The general impression about the hotel is that is kind of old and it needs a lot of refurbishment.

We have stayed in Palace 1 night a few weeks ago. Having studied in the Swiss boarding school and then in Lausanne, on many occasions have I heard people telling me that the hotel is nice. But that was 15 years ago i guess. We were very disappointed. We have checked in around 6 pm and when brought to our...

From the moment our bags were taken from the cab, the hotel staff always excelled. They took wonderful care at each step of check in. The polite and knowledgeable front desk clerk escorted us to our room while introducing us to the hotel and its amenities. The lobby is also handsome and a nice mix of traditional and updated. The...

I'm not quite sure why you would go to Lausanne except on business and if that is the case then this is a pretty good hotel. I have stayed here a couple of times - it is obscenely expensive and although it is 5 star it doesn't feel that way by international standards. Thank heavens the company paid. The staff...

I felt like I was at the $39 Massage Parlor: arrive, massage, leave. Thank you. For an extra $125 you can use one of the chairs in the spa after your massage, otherwise your only choice would be a hardback chair in the hall (that was the answer to my question about whether there was a place 'pour se detendre'...

Stayed here for 2 nights in May/June 2013. Professional staff, good cleanliness, large (although a bit outdated, but that's a matter of taste I guess) room, comfortable bed, good facilities... Nothing to complain about really, except maybe that the spa facilities (men's side) are a bit small compared to other Leading Spa hotels, but still good enough. I highly recommend...
