              my bed had a cheap mattress, feather pillows which do not support my head the hotel had no choice. the bed did not have a side table and so I had to use a chair. I sent my food back twice as the lamb was not cooked the soupervisor was rude and the result was I had no dinner.

              Well priced hotel and good facilities compared with others of the same price which ive stayed at in Lausanne. Friendly staff, large room, spacious and very close to the train station. I'll stay there again!

              Only negative the breakfast is an extra and quite expensive

            • Single
              7.0

              The room was basic but clean and functional. Bathroom small but good shower and better than average hair dryer. Bed was comfortable and nice bed linen. Room was quite warm, especially with down duvet (comforter) that mean it was too hot to sleep unless aircon was on.

              The service in the French Bistro was extremely poor. The food was good but service slow (45 mins for my steak to arrive).

              located close to railway station, nice and big room, very quiet area, beds of good quality

              We did not have breakfast there. According to my earlier experience with the Alpha Palmiers (November 2009), the breakfast was not worth CHF 25.

              Room size, room furniture.

              There were 2 individual beds as oposed to a double bed.

              The location is excellent and very convenient to the center. The bathroom is very nice, and the rest of the furnishings are good.

              The fitness center is in need of a renovation. There is little equipment and what exists is not quality. The path to town from the rear elevator entrance is not well lighted.

              The room is fantastic, very spacious, bright and with a nice view and with a nice bathroom.

              the shower head is very unpractical

              Friendly personel , excellent position , spacy rooms , safety

              Include the breakfast in rooms rate. The wall of the bathroom is from glass.

              The locationg of the hotel is very good. Three to 5 minutes walking distance from the station. It is very convinient to do The room is big and modern. The price is reasonable.

            • Single
              6.6

              Location of the place, heating in the room was adequate, the room was nice for the price, however the minor things below, the shower head on my bath broke, after asking for 2 days to be fixed i gave up, as a person who travels alot, on average 120 international flights a year, i spend alot of time in hotels, for 4 star, i was quite disapointed on my first trip to Lausanne.

              A 4 star resort or hotel doesnt say you have laundry service and then say, "sorry we dont do weekends or public holidays" especially for international business people always travelling. Internet Access in any 4 star resort is normally free - however 79 dollars CHF or US is so expensive, the W Hotel a 5 star resort doesnt even charge 79 for internet, 3. Access to fitness facilities should not be charged at a rate and should be free to all guests along the lines of other 4 star resorts around the world like Marriot etc. Breakfast was appauling, all the tables over the 3 days i was staying there, were never clean i had to go to the furtherest table from the breakfast bar and even then i had to ask for the table to be set - this is not 4star.

            • Single
              6.0

              No air conditioning in room, only 22 degree fan, the night was extremely hot and I could not sleep. The fitness is outdated and poor quality for size of the hotel.

            • Single
              7.8

              Excellent location up hill from train station, a five minute walk.

              Don't stay here if you like a good breakfast. Very uninspired, especially for chf 25. Breakfast should be included in price of room.

              Rather disappointed by the service quality and cleaniness of the rooms. Space under the bed was dusty. Condom packaging was found under the bed. Definetely low value for the money.

              Had requested couple weeks before arrival a double bed room instead of a twin bed room. Despite acknowledgement by the hotel, we were provided with a twin bed room. When a double bed room was requested on arrival, the reception clerk said she was not aware and not the hotel was full for the night and politelydeclined to take ownership of the request by asking that we contact her collegue early in the morning.

              Great location close to metro, train and in city center. Breakfast is worth only if you take the buffet at 25chf as the continental breakfast at 15chf will get you only hot drinks and breads. Staff is nice and friendly and room very clean.

              Don't select this hotel for their fitness as most of the equipment wasn't working. Also we found the hotel quite "dangerous": very sleepery bath tube and marble, sleeping lights right above your head, furniture's angle very sharp ... frightened myself a few times.
