The hotel is at an excellent location: 2 minutes by foot from the train station (if you come from Geneva's airport for instance), and a stone away from " Le Flon" (the area I found super nice for evening drinks and light dinner) all the "main" shopping area, and the southern part of Lausanne, Ouchy, is easily accessible from the...

This hotel is not bad at all, but has the weirdest layout. Took me 15 minutes, seriously, to find the gym, even after instructions from the staff. The weirdest floor layouts, some lifts only go to certain floors, then stairs and another lift to others... Very odd. Rooms are modern and clean, but my single bed was very small. Don't... More

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.

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.
