Worthwhile booking a room with balcony and lake view. Reasonable priced menu of the day dining if reserved before 4pm. Short convenient bus ride from station and close to Paradiso boat pier and funicular to San Salvatore summit.

Nice hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel and decoration is a bit old but comfortable. Breakfast is great. Location of the hotel is ok, 20min walking from the city center and easily reachable by bus from city center or railway station. A bus stop is located very close to the hotel. Value for money is ok... More

Stayed here for a week and was lovely. 5 minutes from the lake, staff were friendly and prices were great. Perfect to just relax around the pool or as a base to go on adventures. Ferry pick-up point just at the bottom of the road too.

Stayed overnight with my daughter. The room was way too small but with air conditioner and TV. Clean and comfortable as a whole. Breakfast had modest range of choice, but good. The lady at the front desk was kind and efficient.

Very nice welcome from the staff and the boss. Breakfasts are very well served. The hotel is making a lot of efforts through promotion of new sevices and maintenance of high quality. The relation cost/quality is very well balanced. Doesnot hesitate if you have not already tried it to choose The Delfino for your stay in Lugano
