Alpha-Palmiers Hotel by Fassbind

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For about $115/night, this hotel is excellent value in a country as pricey as Switzerland can be.

The Alpha-Palmiers was everything we expected- close to the train station, clean, quiet, and comfortable. Internet access was flawless during our stay. We would visit them again.

Very close to the train station and in the middle of Lausanne, great getaway!!

Took the train into Lausanne and could walk the 100 meters to the hotel (although it's up a 5% grade). Great room, friendly staff, good cleaning crew. Only thing a little weird was that the desk is not manned 24 hours. Late at night (time undetermined), the door is locked and the front entrance light is out. To get in you need to insert your room key into a receptacle which opens the door; not so easy when it's dark out. Other than that, stay was great. Highly recommend.

You won't have a bad experience it might not be cheap but has what you need

good, clean, efficient, friendly. good hotel experience especially for business travel. . .

Easy to find from Train station. Room was clean and AC was a huge plus. Biggest compliant was the shower was either too hot or too cold and kept changing on it's own.

The hotel is just one block from the railway station and very modern hotel with good facilities.

The hotel is new, clean & modern with large, comfortable rooms. The staff is nice but the evening restaurant staff seem inexperienced. We actually had free ice cream because, after three visits to the table by three different people, they didn't know how to bill it since the kitchen closed while we were in the bar area (weird). Anyway, one block from the main train station in the heart of downtown. The building is built on a hill and it was a bit of a challenge getting to and from our room on the 4th floor.

found staff to be friendly-helpful-professional hotel was perfect for my visit close to my business needs and close to transportation
