“great location on Lake Lugano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

we stayed here at the end of June 2011 for three nights, we had a nice , clean room overlooking Lake Lugano. The Hotel is located a stone throw from Lugano, in the town of MELIDE. The staff is very pleasant, the room was in good order, be sure you have your breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake and the mountain scenery. The breakfast buffet is plentiful. From here it's a short drive either into Lugano or further south to the town of Marcote. You will enjoy this area of beautiful Switzerland

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2007

Stayed just one day and night at this hotel. Had a room with nice view of the lake. There was a little bit of traffic (local only) on the road that runs just behind the hotel, but it was bearable. You don't hear or see the nearby motorway, luckily. Hotel has a sun-bathing terasse built on the lakeshore, and a small swimming pool. Comfort was ok and price adequate. Breakfast on the terasse on waterfront, quite relaxing. hotel has no car park of its own, and if the few public car parks are occupied, one has to park about 200 m away. Staff friendly and helpfull, German speaking.
