About Alpha-Palmiers Hotel by Fassbind, Lausanne

Relaxing hotel with free WiFi steps from Lausanne metro

Old town central

Just up the hill from Place de la Gare and Lausanne Train Station, the Alpha-Palmiers Hotel by Fassbind is about as central and convenient as it gets. A 5-minute walk places you at the Place St. Francois to start your exploration of the picturesque old town with its narrow shopping streets.

Lake Geneva Alpine waters

It's a leisurely half-hour walk to Lake Geneva, Switzerland's largest body of water and one of the world's most beautiful lakes. If you want to experience something a bit unusual, you'll only need 18 minutes to reach the Collection de l'Art Brut, a museum of "outsider art."

Dinner in a Thai garden

The hotel offers a relaxed atmosphere with an enclosed green courtyard, a fireplace in the lobby, and a spa with sauna, steam bath, and fitness center. Le Jardin Thaï, the hotel's upscale restaurant, offers authentic Thai delicacies.

Free WiFi, DVD rentals

In addition to free WiFi, minibar, and tea and coffee making facilities, all 210 rooms offer an entertainment system so guests can listen to their own playlists. There's a DVD player, with DVDs to rent from the hotel, and wide LCD TVs with 200 channels to keep you entertained.

Convenient location
I have been here many times, and I mainly choose it by the location. Closer to shopping, train station, buses and restaurants.

Great Architecture and Location, Nice Rooms
It's a great hotel in a great location and the styling of the hotel is quite amazing architecturally. We had a nice room with a view of the hill but unfortunately, the A/C didn't work at all and it was very hot (unusually), so we switched rooms and got upgraded to a suite - nice touch! The view wasn't as nice but the rest was amazing. Our breakfast was included but while decent, it's less than what I would have expected from this hotel - yet it has most everything you need but the selection is a bit small. The location is amazing, everything is walkable - Lake Geneva is a 15 minute walk down the hill - and there's a parking garage (public) right next door if you come here by car. Oh, you also get a free public transportation pass which came in handy on the way up the hill back to the hotel.
