This hotel is a fairly large hotel. It's 1 block from the funicular railway to San Salvatore mountain. There were 2 or 3 restaurants (if I recall) around the corner from the hotel. There were also more in the lake area - again if I recall. (The lake is about 3-4 small blocks away). The room I stayed in was... More

Excellent sized comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Only problem rooms were too hot but could not adjust the air conditioning. The Reception response was basically 'bad luck' and just put up with it. In fact to some guests they were particularly rude when they queried the lack of cooling in the rooms. They had a good breakfast.

Very comfortable, very friendly helpful staff. Very good location, right by San Salvatore funicular and only a couple of minutes walk to the lake. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. Room was spotless, comfortable and well maintained. I liked the two swimming pools and the air conditioning. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Friendly front desk service, clean room, roof-top swimming pool with great views, convenient garage. Strategic location - close to freeway. The entrance to the garage is on one-way street which may confuse your GPS if you enter the posted address of the hotel.

Nice buffet breakfast. Good location to through public transportation to anywhere. Nearby with supermarkets and restaurants. 5 minutes walk to Lugano lake front. But, 4 new construction sites in Paradiso at 2016. I suppose all the constructions will be completed on 2018. Therefore, a little bid dusty problem will be occurred during your stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Admiral Lugano welcomes you to Ticino!The hotel is located in the residential area of Lugano Paradiso, a few steps from the lake shore and the city centre. Its proximity to the highway exit Lugano South (only 200 m.), Agno Airport and the Exhibition ground is an unquestionable plus.Situated just behind the hotel, the funicular of San Salvatore climbs upward to the summit allowing wonderful views over the landscape. A typical train slogs up Monte Generoso which is an ideal starting point for excursions at altitude. Monte Lema is perfect for skiers and Monte Tamaro houses an Adventure Park for reckless sportsmen.The neighbourhoods offer plenty of chances for amusement, such as the three Casinos of Lugano, Campione d Italia and Mendrisio, attached to the shopping centre Fox Town housing several outlets with over 250 famed brands (Adidas, Armani, Dior, Gucci, Nike...). Shopping buffs can satisfy their cravings strolling around Via Nassa.Hotel Admiral has 96 standard and superior rooms, family rooms and handicap rooms provided with air conditioning, Pay TV and FREE WI-FI in all the building. Guests can make the most of a gym, an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool on the panoramic terrace, a sauna and a solarium, as well as the Nelson Restaurant and the Admiral Bar.
