“Inadequate”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This hotel takes basic to a new level more hostel than hotel/ Looked good in the pictures but was not comfortable- the beds are extremely hard, the bedding was thin and inadequate ; there was no room darkening drapes or blinds, no shower, hairdryer, recyled paper toilet rolls. Breakfast adequate only. If it had been priced right it would have provided very basic accomodation but it was very expensive for what we got.Wrote to them afterwards but received no reply.
Advice- check out the rooms before you commit.

Room Tip: check the rooms out before you commit

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I had the chance to stay at Hotel Atlantico for some nights, in June. I know Lugano and its hotels pretty well, yet I found this place to be a very nice surprise.
The owners are kind and polite, the rooms are clean and well-equipped. The breakfast with home-made jams and fresh bread/croissants is simply remarkable.
All my requests (having a room in front of the Monte Bré, as well as an hair-drier) were easily met and I am ready to suggest this hotel to everyone wants a quiet, honest, clean and friendly place to stay.

This hotel was very clean and tidy, secure, comfortable beds, relatively central, uncluttered, straightforward, parking, buffet breakfast was average continental style. A few local restaurants and bars close by. The hotel is a 2 star and cannot be compared to 5 star standards but compared to many hotels I've stayed across the world I have no complaints with the Atlantico.

stayed here just 2 nights on business - I suppose all hotels here are very expensive - can't imagine in the 'season'. room was very basic, nice to have the balcony tho it didn't look onto anything, can't see the lake from the hotel, no fridge or hairdryer (and I knew this from another review so brought my own but it still wouldn't fit in the strange outlet.
breakfast also average, nothing 'hot' but staff VERY kind. the cold drink vending machine on the honor system is a cute touch. note no restaurant either...and note that many places don't serve food till 6 pm..you can use euros BTW no need for SW francs...internet fine

The hotel is very simple, but clean and in a quiet area of lugano. Parking is availabe and the berakfast is included too. A nice walk brings you to the center of Lugano.
The staff is excellent and very friendly and has very good tips for sightseeing and places to eat. They speak several languages too and are very helpful. Perfect B&B!

Located in a residential and commercial area, the hotel can be reached in about 15 minutes from the center walking along the lake, or in 5 minutes by bus.

The place is rather old and the facilities are basic, but everything is clean and well maintained. Small, free outside parking lot. There's no room service and no restaurant or bar in the hotel.

Breakfast is fine, with fresh bread and croissants, a selection of home-made jams and good coffee, cappucino etc.

Staff and owners are very friendly and helpful.

It 'a simple hotel close enough to the center of Lugano, where you get a pleasant walk. Managers are very nice, the rooms are very clean and there is a small parking lot available to guests. It 'very expensive, as all dwellings in Switzerland, so it's a good solution for those who decide to stay overnight.
