The rooms may need some renovation soon. That is all for negative. Great location - ask for the room with lake view and a balcony (I had no. 401). Great restaraunt. Nice breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. This is not the center of Lugano, but it was not a problem for me. Take a train (funicular) to Monte Bre (3... More

I stayed at this hotel for about a week, and the view from the small balcony of the room was amazing. It was a pleasure to have breakfast in the terrace right in front of the lake. The food was good, the room was quite small for the price but very clean and the view was worth it. The room... More

Good service and nice lake view. The hotel is very good located as the city center is just a 5 minutes walk. However, our room was quite small and pretty dull. Overall, considering the average prices for Switzerland, it was a fair value for money.

I suspect that high summer must be when this place gets going - as quiet in May as it was in November, and perhaps understandably the staff were keen to get late guests out of the restaurant as quickly as they could. But the food was well cooked and exactly what a late traveller wanted - simple salad and pasta.... More

The best part about staying in this hotel is the beautiful view of the lake. Make sure to book a room with a few. Apart form the view the hotel is average. It is not too expensive (for Lugano), but the rooms are small and dull.

Stayed only one night and will certainly not stay there again. Except the lake view - I could no experience anything that was worth the price for the (very small) room. Dinner - exceptional expensive, but not really worth the price. Breakfast - I choose to have some other place around. If you need to work, with having a table... More

This is the fourth time k have stayed at this hotel. It offers great value in a country where everything costs a lot more than in other European countries. The view on the lake is beautiful, the front desk and wait staff are very helpful and friendly. The quality of food in the dining room is surprisingly good for a... More

Hard to write a fair review of a hotel midweek in November. The view from the room over the water to the mountains was superb, especially in the diffuse early morning light; but the previous night in the restaurant, arriving late, had been bleak, through no fault of the hotel - it was just empty and joyless, as Novembers can...

Be sure to reserve a room with a view of the Lake. The other rooms, facing the street, are long and narrow (I peeked inside one when the maids were cleaning), so be sure to spend the extra bucks and stay in the much larger rooms facing the lake -- for breathtaking views. It is evidently the only hotel with... More

We recently shared a room with lake view and balcony in this marvenous hotel, the only one in Lugano directly on the lake. It boasts a large swimming pool, a pontoon and platform for swimmers in the lake, excellent facilties ans top notch service. This is a place where you can rest happily and serenly. Excellent public rooms: bar with... More
