Dated design and could be quirky and fun but ends up just feeling dated and a little depressing. In two days the only member of staff I saw was the person at check in. I never found the gym, despite the hand made signs on several floors and I never was able to find anyone to ask. The front desk...

Dear Madam,Sir, Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you did not get the chance to use our fitness. If the reception is busy you can always ask someone from the other department they will answer your questions with pleasure. The fitness is located on the other side of the hotel this is why it is a little...

Don't say it's hot in the room - the receptionist will feel bad and will start explaining how someone feels more hot than others. Everyone knows that even Europe needs air conditioning as its getting warming globally but some people just don't want to understand. The room air conditioning doesn't work and reception staff doesn't care!

Dear Madam,Sir, We are sorry if we seemed rude to you. The A/C is working if its more than 25 degrees outside, so unfortunately we can not do it manually. Again we really want to apologie about the attitude of our reception. We hope to see you soon.

Location is excellent as in front of the Cinema where we saw the new & Wonderful Beatles Film. BUT :- - Sunday night - limited Menu and Thai closed - No roast beef. Dreadful Vegetable Burger and the “Frites” deserve to be sued for false identity. Heated up potato wedges - Wine not served prior to food because my choice...

The hotel is OK - good location, average rooms.... But the AC is the room does cool down. Even at full AC, my room never cooled down. Also, to get to some floors, you are required to take 2 elevators.

Stayed for 4 nights with work. Nice Thai food in the restaurant downstairs and a good continental selection for breakfast. Quiet at night and very comfy bed. The room was huge! I stayed in a double on my own on the 3rd floor and loved the size of the bathroom. Perfect for a nice start to the morning. Everyone might...

Though the hotel's furniture / design kind of hasn't yet found it's final stlye, just this little "off" touch makes it rather appealing and distinguishes it from large hotel chains. The rooms facing the courtyard are very quiet. All amenities in place.

The hotel Alpha-Palmiers is a very comfortable, modern and well situated hotel in the centre of Lausanne. Staying here for a business trip, the hotel was very easily findable upon arrival as it is located 5 mins away from the main train station. Checking-in was fast and the staff was extremely helpful which is always a plus point after a...
