In Lugano IBIS chain has 2 hotels. Regular "IBIS" and "IBIS Budget Hotel".
I have stayed in IBIS Budget Hotel (opened in July 2012). Although it is classified as 1* property, i had a very nice experience. First of all, the price was very acceptable (around 75 CHF + 2 CHF tourist tax) and this was the lowest price i could find in Lugano, but the service level and quality of the room was much better comparing to some 3* hotels (based on the conversation i had with my friend who have also been in Lugano in the same period).
The room is not that big, but still it was big enough for me to feel comfortable. Bed was great and i had no problems sleeping. This is a king size bed. I had a separate toilet. The shower is entered directly from the room, and the sink is in the corner of the room. So, for me traveling alone this was perfect, simple but perfect. I guess this room set-up will also we fine for couples, but in case you want to share room with the colleague maybe is better to take 2 separate rooms.
Room was extra clean. Towel are changed every day, but my advice is to bring shampoo and hairdryer, since hotel only provide soaps. My room overlooked the lake and the view was magnificent.
Hotel is located in the so-called Paradiso area. Hotel is located on 10 minutes walking along the lake to the city center + additional 5 minutes to the Congress Center + additional 5 minutes to the University.
Taxi from Railway stations to the hotel i paid 15 CHF.
I did not take breakfast, i found it a little expensive and it is served in IBIS regular hotel.
Parking is provided.
