Good clean hotel with average size rooms and with a very good buffet breakfast. Highly priced for its position. Not much around hotel and would look for something else closer to town and pay a bit more.

The Delfino is a little way out from the city centre, towards Paradiso, but still easily walkable. The hotel staff, from reception to bar staff and cleaners, were all friendly and helpful. I thought the furnishing overall was pretty good for the price, and there is a large bar area leading out to the pool and terrace, which is nice... More

If you love worn, 30 year old furniture so you will find in this hotel your bliss. Beside the not very recent furniture my room was not only very, very small but it also strongly smelled of mould / dampness. According to the reception staff all rooms smell like this ... The only bright spot was the recently renovated bathroom... More

I'm twice a month in Lugano for my job and always at Delfino. I must say that I never had a single reason to complain. Delfino provides a constant quality and I appreciate that very much. The room is clean and comfortable and the people there are just perfect. Ideally located, close to lake and train station.

We had three great days @ the Delfino's. Specially the meal in the evening with very attentive personnel we enjoyed much. The room was clean with enough spaces even for some working. The hotel is good situated, few steps to the lake and nearby the motorway into Lugano.
