Overall, it was clean, did the job as place to sleep and the staff were ok. However, there was a problem with the shutters banging like hell on earth stopping me sleep for 2 nights. On the first night I rang the desk and was told there was nothing that could be done. On the next day, I managed to... More

The hotel is well located; a 5 minute walk to the lake front. Cenral to restaurants and shopping. Our room was small but definitly adequate. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful.

Staff at the restaurant and front desk are very friendly. Hotel is located near the lake. Wifi speed is surprisingly good. Room was not big but was renovated and looked better than in some of the tripadvisor photos.

We visited a conference in Lugano - right across the street in the conference center. So locationwise excellent. Room was nice, elevator fast. Breakfast is decent. Staff at the restaurant very friendly. (No alcohol served at lunchtime.) In general staff very helpful and friendly.

We are a family of 3 and spent 2 nights in an air-conditioned, ensuite room with a balcony and view to the lake. The hotel is perfectly located, very close to the touristic places, congress centre, Parco Civico, etc.. and yet we had a very quiet stay. We were lucky enough to park in one of the few slots the...

Hotel was clean, staff proficient. Location is great, otherwise adequate book if price is more important than atmosphere. Breakfast was good, with extras for purchase. Front desk provides hair dryer and converters for no charge.

I really enjoyed my stay in the hotel because of the wonderful opportunity to leave my food in the fridge, have awesome breakfast (quite rich too) and amazing staff that were so helpful in everything I have asked for (extra hanger for my clothes, ironing table, adapter etc.). Definitely recommend you to stay there. You won't be disappointed.

We spent two nights here recently, and can recommend it wholeheartedly. We had two adjoining rooms for us and our children, and everybody was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff was always very accommodating. Plus the location is amazing, right in the middle of Lugano, just off the lake.
