It must be difficult to keep up to date and modern although I understand some work is going on at present. Perfectly decent hotel but not quite at its original splendour. Good restaurant but a tad pricey even for CH. Great lakeside pool and patio which must be glorious in the summer. A short distance from town centre.

Well located next to the lake. Staff absolutely great - outstanding reception. Large but not inexpensive parking. Really one if the places I want to return - at warmer days to enjoy also outside terrace and swimming pool

An old fashioned hotel that sits right on the lake. Views are spectacular -- probably the best in Lugano. That said, the hotel experience is frustrating. The rooms are clearly in need of remodel and fall below contemporary standards. The beds are only moderately comfortable, the walls are sufficiently thin so that one can hear muffled conversation in the next... More

The views overlooking the lake are second to none. The room itself is dated and tired however. The carpets in the room have outlived their life by a good 5 years and I really didn't want to take my shoes off. The bed was adequately comfortable, the shower took a while to get hot, and the room was dated overall.... More

Our room had a very beautiful lake view. Breathtaking. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The location is great: the Cassarate funicular to Monte Bre is about a minute away and the city center is about a ten-minute walk in the other direction. Breakfast is pretty nice. I also had dinner at the hotel, the food and wine were... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Our room looked out directly on the lake, and included a balcony. Room was very clean, well appointed. Staff was excellent. Restaurant was excellent for dinner. Breakfast as usual in Switzerland was outstanding.

Our room looked directly out on to Lake Lugano, with a small balcony where we could sit and admire the view. The furnishings in the room were a bit spartan, but the service was wonderful, and the restaurant and lounge including the pool area more than made up for that - they were well appointed. The hotel is a bit... More

If it weren't for the beautiful view of the lake we would have been very disappointed in how shabby the rooms were. Wallpaper was peeling, furniture was very old, and the carpeting was stained and smelled in the hallways. It looked like the bathrooms had been updated a few years ago but they haven't gotten around to the rooms other... More

Walk out of the hotel or open your balcony doors and you'll see why this hotel is the perfect setting for business... Breathtaking lake views make it impossible not to smile when you're staying here. Rooms are very Italian though, which means they don't err on the side of chic, however this shouldn't put you off enjoying this hotel and... More

I had a small wedding there in June. We loved our stay. The view of the lake was beautiful and the surroundings. The staff and restaurant did an outstanding job in helping celebrate our special day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Lugano.
