“A very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

I stayed here for only one night during my travels in Switzerland. With the recommendations of Rick Steves and TripAdvisor, I decided to go with this hotel. When I got to Lugano, I realized I had to walk up a little hill to get to this hotel. Being tired and frustrated, I got to the hotel and realized no ramp....I had to lug the bag up the stairs. Then I checked in and they did not have an elevator BUT....Daniel, the owner helped me carry the bag up to my room. The room was PERFECT! (And there really wasn't that many stairs...)
The room was clean and the bathroom was also. The room also had a balcony which was pretty big, overlooking the pool area. And not to mention, an AC unit! (I've included some photos)
The breakfast was good. The staff is extremely nice. And things were really clean here. It's in a very quiet area and not a far walk to the station.

I would definitely recommend my friends and others to this hotel. And if ever in Lugano again, this is where I would stay. Thank you Daniel!

This is a very nice and very friendly hotel in Lugano, within a very short walk from the main train station. The hotel is quite small, I think around 15 rooms, and it is family managed. You really get to enjoy the famous Swiss hospitaliy here. The rooms are very nice, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was really nice with good swiss cheese. The owner, Daniel, go out of his way to be helpful, and he gave me endless useful tips.

Room Tip: If you have plenty of luggage, ask for a room at a lower level.

The hotel is well located very close to the station. The people in charge are very friendly, they help with everything. In the breakfast they serve everything in a very nice shape and they bring all kinds of coffee. The hotel is very clean. Happy to be in such a place while traveling for work purposes!!
