Parking very tight for big sedans. Location quite good. Room was very okay except light in the entrance of the room. It is motion activated so when ever you moved in the bed the light would turn on automatically. Quite annoying feature. Other than that quite ok.

The indoor swimming pool was like a school swimming pool and not a luxury 4 star hotels... The room was very plain, lacked decoration and personality. The bathroom was old and nothing special either.

Dear Unknown Customer, thank you for your comment not really positive. the first part of its remarks strike me particularly because the location of the hotel is recognized by all our customers as our strongest point.

This is not really a 'luxury' hotel more just above a standard. The rooms were clean and bed comfortable but not protectors on either - this is really standard for me these days. The bathroom was basic and dated with lukewarm water. It is however a fantastic location - only minutes away from the Lake and can be easily reached... More

We were in lugano for a night and this hotel was a pleasant surprise. Small room, But good bed and great shower. 15 min walk to the city center, walking by the lake. Fair price, i would easily stay again. Lovely city - hotel located right beside paradiso station.

Just 2 minutes walking to lake, next to big hypermarket and arabic restaurant, very kind staff with enough car parking in front of the entrance in case of drop off and pickup people, car parking with 10 CHF per night which is much cheaper than other hotels.
