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

Parking garage (with an OK price). Sat afternoon to Sunday free parking in the blue zone next to it. Friendly and helpful... 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.

We spent 3 nights in total at the hotel but not in succession - our first stay was for 2 nights and then we enjoyed an overnight stay en route Toscano back to Zurich - what a welcoming and comfortable stay on both occasions .

Stayed here early weekday, early January. The hotel is located close to the center in a slightly elevated area with partial views. The hotel restaurant and cafe area also features an outside terrace with pool area. Hotel style is slightly outdated ("Swiss Senior Citizen Style" ... Excuse my cynicism), but the whole property is very well kept and 100% clean.... More

This was a really nice hotel. The room was well-appointed. The pool area was very attractive. The staff was courteous and helpful. And the breakfast was the best we had in any of the hotels we stayed in while we were in Switzerland. It's quite a hike from the funicular, but the accomodations at the price make it more than...
