My husband and I stayed here with 2 adult children. We were so happy to find this place. The price for the small apartment we rented was fantastic. We loved the location, about a 15 minute walk down the hill to the centre of town. We also enjoyed the breakfast, the gardens and swimming in the pool, which was very... More

Recently, my husband and I stayed at this lovely gem of a hotel. We were very pleased with the location(minutes walking to the center of town or taking a funicular) and the room. Our room, on the second floor, had a view of the lake and surrounding mts. It was also very light and cheerful which we loved. The breakfast... More

A 2 star hotel in the center of Lugano, a nice place to stay very economic and simple at a very good rate ( why pay more unless your looking for all the comforts ) .The rooms are simple and have been renewed all with double glazing, also new bathrooms. It has private parking, park and swimming pool. The breakfast... More

The pool is nice with lounge chairs around it. Dinner is a great value and very delicious. You can hang out inside the restaurant to watch tv like we did while... More
