The hotel is clean but quite old, furniture are freely and the hallway are quite dark as they conserve energy so you will encounter auto light to turn on but turns off fast especially when there are no activities in the hall way. The toilet is decent but it is apparent that it a little worn down. Hotel breakfast has... More

Situated just a short walk from Lugano main railway station this is a simple but nice and clean place to stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a room facing the road but to my surprise it was very quiet. Breakfast was good considering the price range and the breakfast room has a homely feel to... More

The best aspect of the hotel is its location only a very short walk from the main train station. The standard is not high but acceptable for just sleeping. Clean rooms that with inexpensive furnishings. The breakfast is simple. Hard boiled eggs, croissant, cereals and yogurt. Coffee is horrible but you can ask for an espresso which is quite good....

Really, the staff is extremely friendly. They try to do the best while serving to the guests. Location is really great for trawellers by SBB - less than 5 minutes to the station. That was the main reason for me to choose the hotel. The price is adequate too. Breakfast is better to take in the city. The neighborhood is... More

+ Very friendly and helpfull staff! Nice bathroom with a bathtub. We didn't have to leave the key when we went out. - No showercurtain and nowhere for the water on the floor to go. So if you have a room with a bathtub. Shower lying down. Bad coffee and fruit for breakfast.

I really wish I could give this hotel a higher rating, because there's absolutely nothing wrong with the room itself. I really enjoyed the room. The minute I opened the door, I felt at home. The room was big enough to move around in, it was clean and "homey", and the bed was comfortable. The staff were all friendly and... More

This is a budget, no-frills hotel. There is a good deal of street noise if you have a room facing the street. In summer, the rooms are rather warm. The drawbacks are balanced by the friendliness of the staff. There is a 24 h reception, manned by people always willing to help. The location just behing the rail station, is... More

The hotel is located behind the railway station, close enough to go by foot even with heavy luggage. Because the city centre is easily reached from the railway station by a cable car service, the location is convenient in every respect. The rooms are simply satisfactory; it is hard to find in switzerland this standard at such a price in... More
