I returned to this hotel for the second time, and it is even better! We are a couple that likes to find comfy hotels that are on the luxurious side, but not too pricey. Between our previous visit and this last one, which was in May 2021, they renewed all beds and got the new mattresses (which was my only negative point at the previous visit). Beds are big enough even for people with height over 1,90m. Rooms are nicely equipped, and the bathrooms with toiletries are clean and warm enough (!). The safety measures during covid are perfect. All the staff is super helpful, nice and they create a great atmosphere! The food is freshly prepared and really good. It's super handy to dine in, when you've just came from the travel and you have no wish to stroll around the city. The hotel is situated just 10 mins away from the city center of a nice walk along the promenade, which offers a great romantic walks at the evening after a nice dinner in one of the many good Lugano restaurants. The hotel has a covered garage that you can book (for extra payment) and it's a welcome service when traveling by car. Great comfort for a nice price!

I had a room on the 3rd floor with full frontal view of the lake, which was beautiful. The room itself was much bigger than expected with a working desk and another folding table on the balcony so I could work both inside and outside. Two twin beds were nice with hard mattress, just as I asked. Second night I discovered the button which closes all shutters on the windows making the room dark at night, otherwise it was too bright. The decor not the most sophisticated that I have seen but that didn’t bother me. Restaurant menu also I have seen better but again with so many other options in Lugano I only ate there once. Specifically I would like to comment that the receptionists are very responsive in case of any issues - Anna was particularly welcoming on arrival - took me to the room personally which was a nice touch. Also told me where to lock my bike so it was under their surveillance camera.

Stayed for the weekend and had a room with a lake view which was beautiful - and that’s really what you’re paying for here. The room itself was tired and in need of updating, although very clean. The bed was really not very comfortable and every time my husband turned over I seemed to shoot in the air! The pillows were fine though. Noisy road but sound proofing is excellent if you have the doors closed at night. Coffee tray in the room was not filled up despite repeated requests and neither was the shower gel.

The bar and restaurant were fine although we didn’t eat dinner there we did have breakfast. Slightly chaotic with all the Covid restrictions. They could make the serving area larger to allow people to better see what’s on offer (a pretty decent continental).

Staff very pleasant and friendly and there’s a pool which was being readied for the summer which looked good.

When we visit Lugano we usually stay around the center. This time we decided to stay at Paradiso area and chose Best Western hotel. It is a nice quiet area, at the same time close to the center, about 10-15 minutes walk, or a couple of bus stops.
The hotel has a good location with a beautiful view of the lake. Our room had a side lake view, so we enjoyed our early morning coffee on the balcony.
The room was clean and had all what one needs, mini bar, kettle with tea snd coffee… The staff are kind and helpful.
Breakfast room has a terrace/garden where one can enjoy a quiet morning. It had a good variety.
We also had dinner once at this garden which was good.
We will probably be staying at Paradiso when in Lugano and will probably choose this hotel again.

This hotel had some good qualities: the staff were pleasant, there was adjacent parking and it has a good location (although our room looked out on the dirty building next door). Unfortunately the rooms and decor are stuck in the 70's, which felt like when the linens and towels were last refreshed. The room had a safe, but it literally had no lock so was useless. Breakfast was okay, nothing special. Overall, and given Lugano prices, it is not four star quality and didn't feel like value for money.

The hotel building was really nice and so was the location. The problem being:
1. Simply not good enough to motivate the relatively high price (€200 for one night in a all in all good room),
2. The frontdesk staff (aside from the mid-day lady) had a very nonchalant attitude towards me and other guests. Two examples below:
i) The front desk night staff seemed to be hard at work killing hours. He was watching movies on his computer and treated me as a pain in a mere disturbance whenever I needed his assistance.
i) At 11:02 (a whole two minutes after checkout time was due!) the front desk guy called the room with 10-15 signals to order me immediately out of the premise because I was late. I was down at the front desk by 11:03 and he was noticeably annoyed by my tardiness. 3 minutes late when paying the overprice of €200, come on guys.

Your front desk staff is definitely one previous gem!
Staying for our anniversary, we could not have expected better service and attentions for our romantic staycation in Lugano.
The bedroom view on the lake is breathtaking and the experience of sharing a cold glass of wine on your private balcony is unrivaled.
Many thanks for everything, we will definitely come back!

This hotel overbooked through Booking.com and canceled our reservation less than a week from our reservation. We were left scrambling to find accommodation as the Booking.com alternative was not at the same level as our original reservation. Booking.com has not been very helpful and we found our own accommodation thankfully.

I was in this hotel for 3 nights in September, it was absolutely wonderful! The room had a balcony, which was very nice since the weather was extremely good! Bus stops are close by or a nice stroll by the lake to the center of Lugano.
