Returned to magical Lugano after 30 years. Once again stayed at this lovely hotel. Excellent service, nice location, beautiful classic rooms that have all the modern amenities. Would have been nice if the hotel had a pool, a "real, modern" gym (the room set aside for that purpose is a feeble attempt, at best). The large breakfast buffet room (the food was excellent with many choices) is straight out of a 1950's Catskills resort - could use an overhaul.
Felt that there could have been more value for the price, but this hotel "feels" like the Italian Switzerland that is Lugano, and ultimately an overall good choice.
