I was really disappointed by this supposed 4 stars hotel. They gave me room 112... avoid the first floor, it is a smoking floor, the carpets are dirty. In the room , same thing: the carpets were also dirty, the doors of the closet were missing (why??) and worst of all it was stinking the smoke. I asked another room...

Most hotels near railway stations can be very poor. Alpha Palmiers is more upmarket (and expensive (550 CHF for a double room) However dinner service was very slow-took an age to get a menu, get someone to take an order etc. As breakfast the next day was reasonably slick, probably a lack of training. For this sort of price I'd...

We only stayed one night, which means the hotel staff only had a small window of opportunity to make a good impression, and I can't say they did. Upon check in, the counter staff was ok, not overly friendly, but not terrible either. Service could be improved there, but it's not the worse I've had either. The hotel itself was...

I have stayed here twice in the past month. The positive features are the proximity to the railway station – provided you don’t mind walking up a very steep hill – the large bedrooms and the interesting building design. From my perspective, this outweighs the issues with the restaurant – poor customer service and poor breakfast choice – and some...

I'd read a number of negative reviews about this hotel, so I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived and the front desk staff were courteous, our room was clean, breakfast, which was quite a nice buffet was included, and it was quiet. It is more of a business hotel and for a four star rating, it could have had a...

I’ve read a few bad reports on this hotel and was thinking perhaps some were a little exaggerated – unfortunately for this hotel they aren’t! I spent 3 days at the Alpha Palmiers and immediately noticed the lack of vibe and below average service. As a regular traveler I quite like quirky designed hotels as it makes a change of...

Unfortunately my stay at the Alpha in Lausanne was not up to epxectations. Despite having booked a breakfast inclusive rate, I was informed at reception that this would be at an additional charge. I then presented a copy of my confirmation that clearly said breakfast inclusive (booking made through online travel agent), the receptionist bluntly told me that it wasn't...

Large room with plenty of seating and desk. Bathroom has kitchen facilities (unhygenic to me) and wardrobe in it. Dust was accumulating under the bench and the sink did not drain on it's own. Hotel has odd layout although it has great location to rail and city centre. It was under repair renovation when we were there and fitness centre...

It is tricky to locate it, though it is conveniently located next to the rail station. There is no signage in sight and you probably won't see it unless peeking straight into it. Okay, they have built an interesting inner yard with a sort of Japanese garden and night fires over the water. But at the same time it is...
