“Beautiful decorated !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

The building of the hotel can easily be seen from distance because of the color (pink) . I love the decoration , the garden and flowers. I like the view of the lake from the room balcony . The breakfast was also good and I like the fruits which were well selected in good quality.

The staff make the difference. Good caring friendly service. We had a little problem on our arrival with our room, they dealt with the matter seriously and very efficiently. Bathrooms well appointed, shower pressure and temperature adjustment too. Breakfast is more than adequate - you can order expresso, cappuccino. The swimming pool is an additional bonus, towels are supplied, it is convenient, you can enjoy a drink there if you want too.
We asked for recommendations to go our and eat. They did their research and came up with options. This hotel has all the conveniences for a simple stay and more particularly excellent service.

Room Tip: The double rooms are comfortable. Rooms on the higher floors (5th and 6th) give a better view of the...

Clean, great location. Walking distance to main street and restaurants. We took a boat ride at night and to meet the boat it was a few minute walk to the shore line.

We happen to have a corner room that appeared to be a bit more spacious than the regular rooms. We think it may have been a suite. The detail to the crown moldings, wall paper, carpeting and bedding was magnificent. Bathroom was spacious and had great amenities to use.

Breakfast was great. Sitting outside over looking the beautiful garden was an added plus. One of the nicer hotels we stayed at during our visit to Switzerland.

Room Tip: Tried to ask for a corner room.

My favorite hotel during our Switzerland Globus tour. Great location as it was within walking distance of the lake, shopping and restaurants. We ended up with a mini suite on the corner of the hotel. Beautiful, clean, comfortable room with a large bathroom. Staff was extremely helpful. Very good breakfast in a beautiful dining room. The pool looked great, but we had rain that evening and didn't get a chance to use it. The bar area was nice with complimentary snacks.

We stayed at this hotel as part of our Globus tour.
The hotel was centrally located. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Nice spacious bathroom.
WiFi was free, but of variable speed.
A wide variety for the buffet breakfast.
Only negative was the 12 Swiss Francs I paid for ONE scotch and ice. Yes, drinks are expensive.
So yes, a nice hotel

Pleasant and nicely appointed hotel, 5 minutes from station by taxi. 30 minutes pleasant and flat walk to palais de congres.

Rooms were pleasant enough, wifi, free minibar.
Note that power is using the Swiss standard socket so you may need to find an adapter. The continental thin two prong plugs work but not the thicker ones!

Food was good, bar was stretched when full as it's only small with one barman.

Beds were comfortable and firm, English language TV, small verandah to enjoy lake glimpses from.

We had a family holiday recently in this hotel. Although reviews seemed a bit mixed we were very pleased with the service. We had booked a twin bed (by oversight) through Trivago, with a room accomodating 3 people (2 adults + child). At the reception they pointed out our booking was for twin beds but when we said we wanted a double they were very accomodating and took just 10 mins to get the room ready for us. There was also a single camp bed for a child. We later realised they had upgraded us to a Junior Suite in a corner location giving us two long balconies, a partial sea view ( which we had asked for) and full mountain view. The bathroom had a bath too. Everything was neat and clean. The minibar was stocked with water and non alchoholic drinks and they were free. They do not have a kettle in the room so we had carried our travel kettle and there are plenty pf plug points.The breakfast buffet was very good with warm and cold buffet, choice of breads, cereals, cakes...really very good. It was also managed very well with tea and coffee being served at the table. The check in and check out was very efficient and friendly, there is a left luggage facility, lots of quiet sitting areas...It is also a few mins walk from Lugano Paradiso boat ride center and we made good use of that to take boat cruises and trips to Gandria and Swissminiatur. It is also a few mins walk from the San Salvatore Funiculaire, which is also recommended. I would highly recommended this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room preferably on 5th floor which should give you a clear sea view.
