“Homey feeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Stayed for a week during December of 2009 on a business trip. The hotel has this homey feeling, the room is well kept. Located just in from of a bus interchange, less than 10 minute by cab from the train station.

Room Tip: As for a room facing the front yard.

The wasn't the easiest place to get to from the train station but it was so close to a lot of great eating places and pedestrian walking and shopping areas. Just a short walk to the lake. Quite and clean, breakfast was average.

The 3 best things about this hotel are its location, its location and its location (just few steps from Lugano's pedestrian streets). And also its underground parking. The rest is just OK and could offer more or better, given it isn't cheap. The things that would be candidate to be improved are the reception (a smile and a nice word never hurt), the room door's phonic isolation (you can't miss any word of anyone speaking in the corridor ... I assume they will also benefit from your in-room conversations!), the 80's furnished bathrooms and the breakfast (the room has no charm, tis noisy and the choice is limited). With few investments and just a little more friendly attitude, this place would be stunning. But the logic of profit is probably stronger there than the desire to please customers...

in a very expensive city as Lugano a very clean, right in the center small hotel that can accommodate non spoiled visitors
No air-condition for humid and hot summer days
Best room the one with the balcony, minutes away from bus terminal the lake and central square
you won't see the staff very often so keep the key with you
Breakfast is very basic .Why don't you go to the opposite little coffee shop and have a corneto and a fantastic Caputchino
Knowing now
I would defiantly go back and spend my money wondering in the Morcote area

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

In a good location just a bit away from the centre and by the bus station, with easy motorway access and great underground parking. I had a new, comfy and good sized room in the new top floor, which was spotlessly clean and had a platform for opening the suitcase, which is rare these days. The bathroom is a small, but beautifully formed prefabricated pod, but has a good sized shower with plenty of hot water, w.c. and basin and the towels were changed daily. I found the feather duvet too warm and it was changed for a blanket by the very friendly chambermaid. The free wifi was not accessible from the room but I could get a signal outside in the corridor where there is seating. Breakfast is plentiful and efficiently served.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quiet and those on the top floor are brand new.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The room was very small and basic: the bathroom is tiny and very similar to the one you would get in a caravan. In addition the room at the front of the hotel was very noisy due to the busy street. The staff were not very friendly and at times quite rude. I'm afraid, but also the breakfast is really lousy. ... and the price you pay for such a treatment is really high (180 francs for a double room). This is one of the worst hotel I've ever been to.
