"Modern and Conveniently Situated"
Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with some friends, the rooms are comfortable and definitely not outdated. The location is great, easy access to the Lausanne train station and Lausanne center with all the shopping (5 min walk). The staff are friendly and welcoming. The thai restaurant is really really good, I believe the chefs are Thai and they make great dishes. Personal favorite - noodles with chicken :)
I booked twice this hotel, first time it was walk in the price was around 150 chf and the second time was a bit cheaper from internet. I got a nice room with garden view at the first time however if you book from internet with the cheaper rate, they will put you to the smaller room and you see the corridor from your window. Both rooms look much identical but just the full price one is bigger and standard, the cheaper room is a bit different you have windows facing the corridor which you don't want to open at all and my sink was not working. BTW it was my birthday but the hotel didn't give a card or say happy birthday. They are very close to the train station but around the train station you have nothing to do, if you are not having a tight budget maybe choose those near the lakes will be more enjoyable
"Pleasant stay as usual "
Great stay as usual, very business oriented hotel, professional staff, great location close from the train and tram stations where you can at the downtown in no time, I highly recommend the hotel especially for business travelers.
"SPACIOUS ROOMS - PLENTY OF AMENITIES"
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 bath in my room, large bathroom bench with excellent toiletries, 12 English TV channels... and was able to open the window for fresh air, though air con was ok. Had a garden view room so was very quiet at night.. great sleep. Staff are most friendly and helpful, there's a guest computer, and we received a free train ticket to Ouchy which was only 4 stops away. Fantastic breakfasts with a huge variety of hot and cold... eggs, sausages, bacon, cereals, breads, meats, fruit salad, fresh fruit, juices, yoghurt etc... really filling for the day ahead. Visually the hotel is very relaxing with indoor and outdoor areas around the garden. Had a sauna, but didn't get time to use it. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel, and hope I get the chance to return !!
"Nice location, but poor rooms and bathrooms"
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, but from second sight I was able to identify places which were dirty and dusty! The bathroom was also far from pleasing.The bath was so uncomfortable that a taller person would certainly have problems. Breakfast was neither amazing nor bad, yet not at the level of a top hotel. Generally, I like to check different hotels when coming to Lausanne, but I would definitely not return to Alpha-Palmiers in the future.
