"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.
"Centrally located, not far from train station, sleek rooms"
We stayed one night with our family in this hotel. It was very quiet and the rooms are sleek, modern and very spacious. Very nice to have amenities such as an iron and kettle in the room. If you are coming by train this is very close to the train station. A nice plus was the movie theater accross the street, Pathe, that had some movies in English.
I stay for 2 nights in this Hotel. booked was a double room with balcony. first: no balcony, no upgrade, second the romms are 2 or 3 stars, never 4 stars. carpet was dirty (stain), Bed like a bed from IKEA, without breakfast for CHF 238.- per night!! i had booked the romm 3 month bevor, other guests pays 100 swiss franks less, the staff at the desk say only.. "the rate have change", no refund. nevermore!!
