There are a lot of holes in the decking on the roof so becareful where you step. The breakfast was nice, it was a lot different to what we have had on other... More

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.

...in a quiet part of town, away from the hustle and bustle. Twenty minute walk away from the beautiful frescos of Chiesa Santa Maria degli Angelo, and Via Nassa, the main pedestrian mall of the 'old town.' Staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was fresh and appetising, with a limited 'hot table.' Room and bathroom very compact. It was... More

Very good centrally located place to stay for visitors of the city, both businessmen and tourists. Friendly environment, caring personnel, two swimming pools and sauna. Comfortable bed and pillows, which ensures good rest. The only suggestion to improve is related to sound insulation of rooms - at times one could noise from neighboring room.This is worth taking into account during... More

We stayed one night. The hotel is not centrally located and the facilities are not impressive. The room was ok but the bathroom is in need of an upgrade. There was a window in the bathroom that opened to the neighbor's apartment and you could hear everyone talking. The shower walls were moldy. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant... More

It is not centrally located but you know it before booking it. Eooms are ok, big enough, swimming pool as well ok, restaurant wasn't amazing we found better italian restaurants in downtown. If you just go to sleep for a weekend and you get a discounted rate then it is ok.

There was one positive; it has friendly nice Italian staff. But that's it. The place is expensive. It is way out of town. I booked it purely because it has a swimming pool. Which I was told would not be open. It does not have wi-fi in the room. Which was tiny.There was no view of the lake. Do yourself... More
