We stayed here 6 nights and felt very welcome.The location is awesome: just a few minutes from the lake and the city center. Service was great and it is very convenient that there is a restaurant at the hotel with very good value for the money. Even room service is available on request. The hotel offers at least one wheelchair... More

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.

We enjoyed our stay at this friendly hotel that's on a major Lugano street right beside the historic district and a short walk to the lake. Restaurants, bars, and shops surround the store on all sides. We spent 2 nights in an economy room and 2 nights in a comfort room. Do yourself a favour and go for the more... More

The desk people are very nice. Every thing was for the requested price good. On a personal view, I would like at breakfast tomatoes, fresh cucumber and plain organic bread! One egg cost CHF 1.50 (!). Internet works very well
