“Average budget hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This budget hotel is in a very convenient location two blocks from Lake Lugano, and good value if you're on a budget. The room was a little strange, because despite being a couple, our room had a bunk bed (double on bottom and single on top). The shower was part of the room, not self-contained. And the toilet had a door, but it was more like a stall. But the room had all we needed, except for complimentary toiletries and a refrigerator. There is a Migros down the street, so we bought food there instead of buying the hotel's breakfast. Normally this would be an average 3-star rating, but the man at the check-in counter was so friendly and helpful, he gets a star of his own.

We had a very good time at this hotel located in the beautiful Paradiso in Lugano. Clean room, LED tv, and excellent breakfast of a great variety. Front desk staff very kind and helpful. Parking charges are expensive but i guess they are similar to other hotels in Lugano.

First of all, I have never stayed in such a room in my life before. It was more like a ship cabin than a hotel room. There was a fiber glass shower and a seperated toilet in the room. Not in the bathroom, i mean "in the room". As there was no bathroom door, you can hear all the activity in the barhroom. Another surprising point was, the "fabrics" they leave in the room, were not towels. As I said, it was a comedy. I do not even mention about how small the room was.

To be frank, I need say that the room was very clean and the location was close to the center.

First of all Lugano is beautiful! Secondly, as an Accorhotel fan I can say that I was pleased to find the same quality of service at Ibis Lugano Paradiso. The front desk people were very nice and helpful. My only complaint is the size of the room and the non-sound proofness of the toilet. Actually if two people are in the room, they can hear the other person doing his 'need' in the toilet. Absolutely embarrasing. Accor has to correct this. Apart of that, there are 2 bus stops 100m away or one can be on the waterfront lake road in literally less than 2 min.I have also used the Novotel lobby which is same chain, same building at Lugano and it is very stylish. View is not so great in general but you can ask for 7 floor view lake. Overall, nice good old Ibis budget!

This hotel is very well located, close to monte San Salvadori, 3 blocks from the lake and with 1,8 for you can get the center of Lugano in 15 min by bus. Clean and friendly reception, you pay a reasonable price. Towers could be better but it is the ibis budget proposal.

If you are staying for a night in Lugano this is the perfect place. Located next to the lake with a walking distance to everything and also next to one of the stops of the tourist line train.

The staff is really friendly and nice. If someone is not in the reception just go to the next lobby since Ibis and Sofitel share the same building.

Buffer breakfast was good for the price. Parking lot is part of the main building. Don't forget to ask for your WiFi code.
