Overall the interior could be a bit freshened up. The people are very nice. Parking is very special. They need to bring you to the next door garage. Where you only can park with their assistance. I couldn't find it myself, nor you can enter without the support of the receptionist. So I called to ask for assistance, but nobody...

I spent one night at the hotel and have to say that the location is amazing. Really worth a visit. The hotel is equipped with old fashioned furnitures however still clean and pleasant. The rooms are comfortable, in particular the bed. Very good mattress, hence very good night sleep. The prices are a bit too high for my taste. I...

The area is beautiful. The pictures are the day and night view from my room. The room was nice but the safe was not working. Apparently there had been a robbery a week or so earlier and we were told at check in to carry our valuables with us when we left the room. We felt safe at all times....

A must stay while in Lugano. We had the lake room...with the best views of Lake Lugano. Zamel, the Concierge, was very helpful and welcoming. We also had a great breakfast before we went on our way throughout the day. All in all, we had a pleasant stay and we look forward to coming back when in Lugano.

We found the junior suite comfortable, clean and spacious and we slept well. Air-conditioning worked well. About 6 or 8 UK TV channels rather than just news. View of the lake was very restricted but did not matter to us. Breakfast was not the best I have had in Switzerland but was acceptable.

The reception and services were okay, but very slow. The rooms were fine. The safe boxes need to be upgraded immediately and cameras should be put up. On the same day, 3 families, including us, were robbed while we were out. Please, whenever you leave any hotel to tour the city or eat, take your passports with you. It just...

This was a beautiful property, with awesome pool, fantastic breakfast; but horrible front desk service. The hotel had a lot of Middle Eastern guests who they served well, but had no time for us. We stayed 5 nights, are Diamond Level Best Western members and have never been treated so disdainfully! When we arrived early, the clerk dismissed us immediately...

My association had a meeting here and every one was staying at the hotel. The hotel isn't that far from the Paradiso train station. I followed the instructions and walked from the train station to the hotel. It was all downhill. The hotel faces Lake Lugano and my room has one window facing the lake. The staff was absolutely wonderful...

This hotel had a great air conditioner. Very comfortable room right in front of the lake. Across the street was the boat dock to cruise the lake sites. A short walk and you are in downtown Lugano close to the train station and restaurants. Breakfast was good and staff were very helpful with information.
