“A great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I was fortunate to accidentally find this Hotel in a last minute search. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the rate charged. The staff were friendly and helpful (multi-lingual). Parking was available (offsite but easy walking distance) at a nominal charge and free wi-fi was accessible in the room. The Hotel was situated in the Paradiso side of the lake but was a great value proposition with well appointed clean rooms and a good breakfast included.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good wi-fi connection - some are better than others

Friendly and nice place to stay, walking distance to centre Lugano. 10 min. 2 min to lake, Supermarket around the corner. Parking around the corner, 10 Francs a day with hotel voucher.
Parking in front of hotel easy to unload luggage. Bus stop 2 min and brings you to Lugano centre.
The family owners and staff are very nice and helpful. Rooms clean nicely decorated, bathroom a little outdated, our shower/bath was a little tricky, hard to get in and out of the shower, only the heater to hold on to.
Breakfast was ok. Next time I am in Lugano, I will stay here!

Room Tip: Make sure you are comfortable with the bathtub and shower when older can be slippery.

The hotel is located near the Funicular of Lugano and near 2 bus lines (numbers 1 and 2) that can take you to the city; there is also a supermarket very close to it. We tried once to go by car to the city center and it was difficult (and expensive) to find a parking place, (take the bus)…
The décor of the hotel and the room is very nice and eye appealing, the furniture are antique style, and there are many replicas of famous painters worldwide everywhere, framed in nice Antique style golden frames; It feels like a museum.
The hotel is clean and well kept, the room is spacious and comfort, but the bed was a little too stiff for our taste.
Breakfast was good and tasty and the stuff was polite and helpful.
On the down side:
Parking is at a public parking place nearby, and the hotel charges you 10 franks per day for it. This was really strange, since nobody asked us anything in the parking lot; it seemed we could park there for free…
The bath in the bathroom was very slippery and no anti-slip carpet in it, when I remarked about it during our check out, the answer was that if I would ask they would give me one, (not the kind of answer I would expect)…So my recommendation is: Ask for it.

This hotel was an excellent choice for our stay in Lugano. It is clean, comfortable and convenient to Central Lugano. The public transport system is very good. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were of high quality. This is a value for money hotel and is highly recommended

Very friendly chef and service staff who made us felt welcome. Breakfast was very good, with a full range of items, including locally made cheese. Location is just a few bus stops away from the Lugano station, and another few bus stops to the city central.

I came again to Hotel Dischma, traveling with a family member from the States. We were very pleased with our choice.

We appreciated the friendly staff, excellent beds, and good layout of the room - with separate bathroom/wardrobe area from sleeping area. The partial wall between made it easier for one to sleep while the other was using the bathroom or wardrobe.

In the morning, breakfast was a delight. A friendly and efficient wait service, and a great meal with a rich assortment of tasty food. A bonus: the comfortable parlor for talking with friends.

All in all a very comfortable stay. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

no bar of soap, no washcloths.
