“The minimum at Lugano's maximum price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Still expensive, but it's Lugano. At least well situated, clean, functionnal. The area is pretty quiet. A safe parking is availlable for 20 CHF per 24 hours. Not cheap but it's Lugano. Easy to find not far from the Lugano South highway exit.

Shared the room with my father for 4 nights.
Breakfast was OK, room was clean but too small and had not much privacy. While one was taking shower, the other one had to stay in bed or wait outside.
For me that was the only down side of this experience.
Location is good. Hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood, near the lake and Lugano-Paradiso train station.

We pre-booked two rooms in this hotel for the Night of Friday to Saturday. Due to traffic jams, we only arrived at 2.30 in the morning. First disappointment was not finding a parking lot in the garage (although it is mentioned there is parking for all guests!). Second shocking event: we were given the key of a room that was already occupied by a couple - we entered their room in the middle of the Night ... There was most probably another room still available but the staff Member could not find which. In the meanwhile, we already lost about one hour - the children were very tired. And still no solution. The staff Member then even mentioned that we should have arrived earlier in order to get our room. But we had chosen this hotel because you can arrive 24/24. In the end and as we insisted we got a second room in the next door Ibis hotel.

Dear Gebo2014

Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions.
As already communicated to you the next morning we are entirely sorry regarding this situation. Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. For compensation we have also contacted the people lodging in the room you received a key for. Further we included an additional procedure to prevent such a situation and have talked to the night manager as your upgrade could have been conducted in a faster way. We hope this situation never happens again.
I sincerely wish to have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide you with a totally new experience.
Best Regards from Lugano
Eva A. – Assistant Manager

Arrived here in early July with my boyfriend. We were staying for 2 nights as we travel around Europe.

When we arrived the staff were very friendly and explained everything we needed to know about our room, the wifi, etc.

Our room was very basic, but in turn also very clean and very comfy. It felt to me a bit like an IKEA display! The shower was very nice, and they provided towels. However, the toilet is kind of in a cupboard instead of its own room, so people with intimacy issues may want to avoid...

There were no plug sockets near the bed. There was a lot of light and lightswitches in the room, including from the bed.

The view was lovely and the hotel is in a good location too, just 5 minutes from the lake. However, don't come to Lugano Paradiso if you are planning on hitting the town, there are very few restaurants or shops or anything and everything closes early. You may be better off in main Lugano. The room was nice and quiet.

I would definitely recommend the room for a short stay.
