I have stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at a weekend. We booked with expedia. Check-in was super-smooth and fast. All extras as previously quoted (10 euro/night the dog, 10 euro/night parking about 5 euro per person/night tourist tax).
The room was small but clean and modern. Since we had a dog, the hotel staff kindly gave us a room with a balcony. Bathroom was a little less modern but still clean and spacious.
We used the SPA area. Nice pool, separate saunas for men/women and a small gym. Unfortunately, it was very noisy as there were a couple of families with wild kids diving and shouting the whole time.
The hotel is in the Paradiso area of Lugano, less than 5-minute walk from Lugano centre. The walk from the hotel to the centre fo Lugano is very nice, by the lake. The hotel is also 20 yards from the "funicolare", which take you to the top of one of the hills around Lugano.
The best feature of this hotel is definitely the staff - super-friendly, genuinenly kind and helpful. 10 star for customer service.
I'll stay here again, and again, and again.
