The hotel and rooms are rather small, but very charming and quaint. They try very hard to help you have a great stay and you can see it. Little touches from the lovely amenities for my kid, to the fantastic breakfast, smiling efficient staff, in-room amenities...you name it and they have nailed it. I am a hotelier and know how...

This is an old-style hotel in a fabulous location for walking around. Because it's in a pedestrian-only zone, parking is a little weird. Follow your gps to the bottom of Via Giuseppe Motta and you will find yourself at the entrance to a small alley, blocked by a short, fat metal pole. Hop out and dial 3 on the control... More

Located in the city centre, only 8 min on foot from Lugano train station. Especially for persons traveling alone is very convenient. Room was very clean. The staff were very kind. From your hotel room you can observe the locals in their morning ritual, open their shops and having a coffee while they tell stories.

Great spot, right in the middle of town. Amazing, friendly service. Very baby and child friendly. They have a very good breakfast, a cozy lobby and are centrally located in the middle of Lugano, within easy walking distance to the lake, restaurants, etc.

We stayed for 10 days and could not fault the hotel. The staff are most helpful and friendly and the location means there is easy access to the Centre restaurants. If you need bar snacks they are good. We had a suite which was both very quiet and offered 5 star facilities..There is no lake view but only a 3/4... More
