The price of this hotel didn't inspire much hope in it's standard, but arriving there we were pleasantly surprised. The hallways are very narrow and get a Little bit claustrophobic but the room itself was alot better than my expectations. Even the breakfast was alot better than we had hoped. There is somewhat limited parking available but if you get... More

The great location, easy to walk to&from the train station, the friendly staff and the availability to use one of their "house" bikes to cycle around Lugano made the Hotel Colorado my "Lugano" hotel. The rooms very efficient, quiet, everything you would want and need. The free WiFi allowed me to pick up my e-mails and catch up the news.... More

I booked the hotel through email and got a very warm reply that "we like to take care of nice people as our profession". We stayed for 3 nights. Upon checking-in and every morning, we are warmly greeted by staff members. Hotel Manager told us that all rooms have been renovated in 2013 with air conditioning, new windows with double... More

Yes, room 403 was a bit small for two although I was alone; there was a nice balcony with view. Room 310 was bigger, I noted. Staff very sweet and helpful. Free parking. Wifi worked fine. Not a far walk to town, though downhill. Bus 2 passes right by. Nice breakfast. If people want big rooms like in the US... More

I'd not say the hotel is bad. In fact, staff at front desk is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good and offers a variety of jam, cold cuts and cheese, cereal, fruit, eggs and juices. The rooms are basic and very clean. In fact, there is hardly anything in there that could become dusty. Except for the mattress,... More

We got this hotel com our bernina express package. After the nice experience we had at Eden hotel in St.Moritz, we were a bit shocked when we entered our room in hotel Colorado the room is small , the bathroom is very tiny and I could hear all the sound from other rooms in the evening. Won't stay there anymore... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Colorado this spring and it was great! The management was extremely helpful and friendly, and the continental breakfast was healthy and delicious. Our room was a little small but very clean, and the owners were cheerful every time we saw them, giving us lots of information about getting around and things to... More

Not a fancy hotel, but adequate and a perfect location for our needs. The Avis rent a car business was right across the street and they were wonderful to deal with. It was just a short 20 minute walk to the train station which was one other reason we chose the location. The room was small but clean and the... More

I spent two weeks in Switzerland, staying in a different place every night, and of all the hotels, this was the lowest value. We did not make any reservations and we just happened upon the hotel, so we did not know what to expect. We were told the price of a double room was 210 CHF, but when we turned... More
