“Nice view, only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2011 via mobile

I read that this is a nice hotel to go, With a nice view so I tried it. The view was fantastic indeed, but that was all. The room furniture ikea!! There was a spa that we didn't manage to get any because I had to book in advance (something that no one told me) and this because outsiders can use it, therefor won place for customers paying 700 franks per night!!!!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2011

We spent new years eve with our 6 month old baby and rented a suite with a 50% discount. Was great for a family of three (and our pet dog). Decoration a bit antiquated but clean large living room, adequate bedroom and great bathroom. They offered to charge us 100CHF a day to put a microwave in teh kitchen of the suite to heat up baby bottles!!! and i cannot remember how much they wanted to charge us for using the kitchen in the suite, a silly amount. Spa definately worth a visit, great pool and gym and had a great massage with a therapist from greece. Room service was good and not too expensive. Would have never paid the full price though. Breakfast so so, but nice and fresh. In the sumer must be even nicer with the pool

The hotel sits on a hill right outside of this fabulous town giving it a spectacular view. The room was large and beautifully appointed, the grounds impeccable and there was a spa that looked terrific though our schedule didn't allow time to take advantage of it.

Hotel very good, sorry that I take the bed was separated. I think that's just asking to put a double bed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

This nice hotel is 4 bus stations away from the Lugano train station, uphill in a residential area. There are different buildings. The reception was nice, and I was upgraded to a Junior suite with view on the reception building and the driveway.
Large suite with comfy bed, balcony, modern and large bathroom, kitchenette. I was a bit concerned about a good night sleep but I slept well. The furnishers were worn already.
I enjoyed the breakfast on the restaurant’s terrace with beautiful view on the lake and the city centre of Lugano. Large buffet but Swiss style. Its fitness center is large and modern. My steep walk down to the city centre of Lugano lasted approx. 15mins., bring good shoes.
It was a pleasant but short stay, I’d come back.
