The owner was VERY friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, but a bit small as most European rooms are. It was only a 10 to 15 minute walk along the lake to get to the center of town. Breakfast was good. there is an elevator that can be used for luggage. This was one of our more expensive places,... More

I stayed in Hotel Atlantico from 25 to 29 June 2014. As many of the reviews have pointed out, the owner Elisabetha and her staff were very friendly and helpful, and they certainly made the stay a very pleasant one. I am thoroughly impressed at how prompt they are in attending to me and I can see that they treat... More

We stayed in the Hotel Atlantico for 2 nights in late September of this year. The hotel is located in a more residential area of Lugano, away from the hub bub of the old city center, and is thus much quieter. But is a nice walk or easily accessible from the #2 or #3 bus. It is a fairly standard... More

This hotel takes basic to a new level more hostel than hotel/ Looked good in the pictures but was not comfortable- the beds are extremely hard, the bedding was thin and inadequate ; there was no room darkening drapes or blinds, no shower, hairdryer, recyled paper toilet rolls. Breakfast adequate only. If it had been priced right it would have... More

I had the chance to stay at Hotel Atlantico for some nights, in June. I know Lugano and its hotels pretty well, yet I found this place to be a very nice surprise. The owners are kind and polite, the rooms are clean and well-equipped. The breakfast with home-made jams and fresh bread/croissants is simply remarkable. All my requests (having... More

This hotel was very clean and tidy, secure, comfortable beds, relatively central, uncluttered, straightforward, parking, buffet breakfast was average continental style. A few local restaurants and bars close by. The hotel is a 2 star and cannot be compared to 5 star standards but compared to many hotels I've stayed across the world I have no complaints with the Atlantico.

The hotel is very simple, but clean and in a quiet area of lugano. Parking is availabe and the berakfast is included too. A nice walk brings you to the center of Lugano. The staff is excellent and very friendly and has very good tips for sightseeing and places to eat. They speak several languages too and are very helpful.... More

Located in a residential and commercial area, the hotel can be reached in about 15 minutes from the center walking along the lake, or in 5 minutes by bus. The place is rather old and the facilities are basic, but everything is clean and well maintained. Small, free outside parking lot. There's no room service and no restaurant or bar... More

It 'a simple hotel close enough to the center of Lugano, where you get a pleasant walk. Managers are very nice, the rooms are very clean and there is a small parking lot available to guests. It 'very expensive, as all dwellings in Switzerland, so it's a good solution for those who decide to stay overnight.
