“Best Hotel Stay Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Very friendly and professional staff. Made you feel very welcome and went out of the way to make sure we had all our questions answered. The complimentary "extras" were a real bonus. The breakfast was superb.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over the square.

Perfect location at the foot of the funicular leading from the train station to the city center. The staff are all incredibly attentive and friendly and make a point of remembering your name. Rooms are very comfortable, although somewhat small if that is important to you. (We found it to be fine.) No noise from the street in spite of the central location. Quality linens with your choice of seven different kinds of pillows. Shower heads were marvelous. The breakfast buffet was the largest I've ever seen and the food was good. Both breakfast and wifi are complimentary. I highly recommend this hotel.

A nice clean hotel with a fantastic breakfast buffet in the Lugano Center. Wifi is a standard and the personnel make you feel home. The Lugano lake is a short walk.
It is like to be home. In the hall there is a complementary coffee machine.
It is a great place to spend few days as a holiday, for business or just for a short break,

One night here on a stopover - what a find! The staff couldn't have been more professional, welcoming or helpful. From the moment we arrived they made us feel totally welcome and relaxed. The breakfast is sumptuous and plentiful and the room was new, well thought out and extremely comfortable. When you stay at hotels that are renovating and upgrading, usually it's painful. Not the case with this one - you wouldn't have known the work was going on as it was so well managed for guests. The location is great: close proximity to lake, shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Excellent location in the centre of Lugano! We travelled by train and took the 1 minute Funicular ride and arrived at the front door of a truly 4 star hotel!! After a long trip on the William Tell Express it was wonderful to be greeted by such a courteous staff and offered free tea and coffee. The room was compact and comfortable. Breakfast was just simply Huge!!! And was possibly the best while on a six week tour of Europe. Where in the world would you be having a melted thick hot Chocolate for breakfast (dark or white...)only in Switzerland !!!lFabulous.....

Room...Very nice
Breakfast...Superior, Excellent, A1...Can not say enough
Parking...Excellent and FUN! (Parking Attendant had just as much fun as we did, very entertaining)
Front Desk Staff...Very good
Bar Staff...Very Good and Very Kind

Don't attempt to find the hotel without GPS! For that matter, don't attempt to travel throughout Switzerland without GPS. Mapquest or Google Maps are of little use as Street names are issued but not posted. If you enter your hotels address into your GPS then it will take you right to the door.
