I had quite low expectations for this place as I just booked a last minute, for a cheap one night stay. I knew it was a budget hotel but it is definitely a very nice budget hotel. The traffic noise was easily blocked out by the balcony doors, so it didn't make a difference that it was on the main... More

Overall a decent hotel located right next to the main station. It's good value for money and we'd go again: + location central + price + service, staff + nice & big rooms + parking is included - road noise! - no air condition - breakfast buffet not the best but ok

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
