I led a group of 32 students and adults to France, Germany and Switzerland in July 2011. We stayed at the Alpha-Palmiers for two nights. We also dined in the hotel restaurant. The lobby area: very modern yet comfortable. There was internet access for 7 Swiss Francs for a 30 minute time period. Wifi was available for a price, but...

The hotel location is just perfect. In front of the train station and subway, a lot of good restaurants around. If you have Lausanne as your hub for travelling around Switzerland you have a very good and organized train station, and to walk around the town you have the subway. The room is very clear, the front desk personal is...

A nice clean and comfortable hotel for a stop over as we travelled to Italy. Friendly reception staff and room on the top floor with a view of lake if you leaned out of the window. Beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and fairly spacious as was the room itself. However this was a Saturday night and...

Alpha Palmiers is located in the heart of the city just 200 m away from lausanne Rail station. it is an awesome place with helpful hotel staff. Walking distance from Lausanne Garre metro station. The Thai restaurant is simply irrestible.

Everything would be perfect if not the 'garden view'. I booked the room with garden view that was slightly more expensive than standard, but got the corridor view, so closed curtins all the time :( Otherwise well furnished, clean and large rooms. Plus for good choice of TV channels. I will return if visiting Lausanne!

I just spent 10 days at the Hotel Alpha-Palmiers for a work trip. It's a good hotel--not a fabulous hotel--but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The positives: Very convenient location in the heart of Lausanne. Yes, the train station is a two minute walk (down hill) more like 10 when you head back up. Getting a cab in...

We had a conference in the Alpha-Palmiers and stayed for two nights. Lausanne is an expensive city, and the hotel is about average price, but does represent good value for money. It is modern and reasonably spacious, but is quite spread out (I had to take two separate lifts to get to my room). The free breakfast I got in...
