“Comfortable, nice, clean hotel...but no frills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Staying at the IBIS Lugano is an overall pleasant experience. The rooms are modest but comfortable, the staff is friendly and responsive, and the location is excellent. If you are looking for a fun way to spend 1-2 hours, I highly recommend taking a ride to the top of Monte San Salvatore. http://www.montesansalvatore.ch/it/home/ The lift is only two blocks from the IBIS.

Typical ibis room, with very well laid out bathroom with stand-alone shower.
Breakfast didn't offer any hot dishes, but TV carried BBC & ITV channels which was an unusual bonus. Sleep quality was fine on the 7th floor.
Plenty of nearby shops and restaurants.

One night here between the Wilhelm Tell Express and the Bernina Pass Bus.
If coming down by train, don't get off at Lugano and stay one for the next stop, Lugano-Paradiso to greatly shorten your walk.
If you're looking for the Bernina Pass Bus, take train back to Lugano, then on exiting the station towards the lake turn left and walk about 300m to find an A4-sized sign at the stop.
Can't miss the bus, it's white & red with Bernina Pass Bus written on it.

This new constructed Hotel is very well located close to the lake in Lugano. The rooms are typically IBIS design, everything is clean and works well.

Well the bathroom is like on Cruise Ship, very small but fits the needs. It is clean and you have all the necessary things.

The main problems are the Elevators, especially in the morning when many people are moving, you probably get stuck for 15 -20min trying to get the elevator.

Overall the Staff is nice and always helpful.

The hotel room is not very spacious but it is newly furnished with modern design. Room and toilet are clean, staff are helpful, and location is convenient. In general the hotel is recommendable. However, some areas could be further advanced. I was wake up one night by some kind of alarm during mid-night due to probably false fire alarm.

Hotel is new and very good. It is a 15min walk from the centre but for the room rate for it is still well located. Great parking though not a lot of choice of Restaurants within 5mins of the Hotel. Would overall recommend this for as a value for money Hotel in a town that is generally over priced

Ibis Paradiso was pleasant surprise.Located only 5 minutes by walk from Lugano lake and
15 min from main center.
This new hotel attached to big brother Novotel and small brother Ibis Budget was great
experience from very beggining.
Polite staff and fast check in guarantees nice and comfortable stay.
Rooms are very nice,well equipped and great bed.
In compare with other Ibis hotels size of the room a little bigger.
Windows can open and thats new for Ibis.
There are small restaurant which is shared between Ibis and Ibis budget and breakfast
served was completely enough to start the day fresh and full of energy.
Not much facilities in this place,wireless internet for free in the rooms,desktop PC in the lobby
and thats it.
Anyway great time at Ibis Paradiso Lugano at very convinient rate of 119 CHF and for sure
when in Lugano I will return.
Warmly recommended!

The parking charge was excessive given the ratio to the price of the room,
and the unavailability of on street parking in the area of the city where the hotel is
situated. At least part of the charge should be refunded as credit towards future
stays at accor hotels.
