The hotel is a cosy one with a very friendly staff. The guy took care of us even paid for the car meter so we didn't have to wake up early :). The room was simple but got all you need for 1 or 2 nights, it is a good relationship price-quality. Breakfast didn't have many variety but quality was... More

All our requests were met with instant solutions. Lovely people really. Rooms are a bit small and spartan, decor elements in room are... More

Great value for money. A simple very clean room with a good breakfast. Helpful staff. Near public transportation. The minibar was noisy but being empty we just disconnected it. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms and lobby.

We stayed here on our way to Italy. The rooms are a bit outdated bit clean and adequate. We slept well. The staff is extremely friendly and will do anything to make your stay memorable. I was quite impressed by that. The location is good: close to downtown so if you want to visit the center you can. Parking is... More

We can't come because my girlfriend was in hospital and the manager canceled the reservation without costs although it was for the same day! We will come next year - thank you very much again for the straightforward procedure!

Lovely quaint hotel in a good location. It us about a 10 minute downhill walk into the centre of Lugano. You can get a bus or short taxi bus, back up the hill. If you walk left from the hotel away from town following the lake, there is a small lido where you can swim in the lake. Some of... More

We paid 150chf for a room for two. The service was very nice and the room clean and quiet. Good deal in Lugano and the breakfast is included! This hotel delivers good standards for a *** and we all had a good experience there. Just some rooms have a small double bed so to check when you book maybe.

We were very dissapointed about our visit in this hotel. De room was very small, and very hot (no airconditioning). Also there is no private parking for the visitors. You have to park on payed parkingspot nearby.

We planned to stay for just one night on our way from Holland to Tuscany. The hotel itself was easy to find but there isn't much parking around. We were lucky enough to have the last spot on a small parking area nearby that has only 8 spots. The reception staff was quick, friendly and efficient. The rooms looked recently... More
