Reviewed 26 September 2011

We spent a weekend in Lausanne between two art exhibitions. The hotel is ca. 3 minutes from the train station. The hotel is modern, rooms are very spacy (including bathroom!) and generally overlooking a nice patio. Restaurant was OK (had a bit of bad luck with the meat but generally it was tasty). Will use hotel again in future.

Alpha-Palmiers is located at walking distance from Lausanne train station and metro station. However the walk could be tiring for some because of steep climbing. The hotel has reception with friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean with all modern furniture and decor. Electronic tea kettle and handy iron-table with iron were good additions. The distance to elevator could...

WE traveled from Germany and were not the least disappointed in this hotel- it is beautifully designed with large rooms and marble bathrooms. It has a 4 star Thai restaurant that was absolutely great! It is centrally located and an easy walk to most of the sites including the Ouchy. You do have to pay for parking in the parking...

Alpha-Palmiers is a 4 star hotel but it gives you the quality of a 5 star hotel. Really value for money. Spacious rooms, good atmosphere, good breakfast with a large variety of choice... Would certainly come back if I would go somewhere near Lausanne.

Perfect location, 3 minutes' walk from the train station, metro and buses, 10 minutes' walk from the main shopping area, banks and post office. I stay at this hotel on average twice a year and have always found clean rooms, immaculate bathrooms, modern and attractive interior design, friendly and efficient staff.

I provided a review for the Alpha-Palmiers a few months ago. My first stay there was pretty good. But, my second stay didn't match up so I felt compelled to write a second review. During my first stay, my room was HUGE. Enormous really. Great bathroom, work space, etc. But on my second stay, my room was so small that...

We stayed here for three nights. The rooms were clean and spacious with plenty of room. The double bed was just two singles pushed together which wasn't ideal and we had two duvets that were sort of three quarter size. The bathroom is massive which ample wardrobe space.
