What a great find. In what is often a very expensive country, this haven offers great value, service, delicious breakfasts and location. Plus a beautiful garden and pool - just a shame I was on business. A MUST but keep it quiet!

This is a very nice and very friendly hotel in Lugano, within a very short walk from the main train station. The hotel is quite small, I think around 15 rooms, and it is family managed.

The hotel is well located very close to the station. The people in charge are very friendly, they help with everything. In the breakfast they serve everything in a very nice shape and they bring all kinds of coffee. The hotel is very clean. Happy to be in such a place while traveling for work purposes!!
