Hotel is very good located right by the lake and in walking distance to the city centre. Unfortunately the parking is only possible in a public garage (without any discount from the hotel and its 40 CHF a day!) or you have to find in front of the Hotel a spot but thats very hard and you have to make...

This hotel has lovely views over the lake and is not far from Lugano Paradiso station. The hotel is in the process of being updated and our junior suite had a large bathroom, a good sized double bed and a sofa bed that curled up a little at the end but our son found comfortable enough. The two balconies were... More

Stayed for 1 day. The hotel is close to the city centre there is a parking not far from the hotel (costs about 25 CHF/night), overviews the lake. However it is quite outdated and in need of renovation. Breakfast buffet could use some upgrade.

We had lunch and dinner there yesterday and loved the meals. Pizza and a salad with walnuts and blue cheese was delicious. For dinner we had the Hungarian goulash with mashed potatoe and the pork fillet with mash and truffle sauce and it could not be faulted. Also the desert was delicious (try the chocolate soufflé amazing). The service was... More

The hotel is a 15 minute walk to the centre of Lugano. The lake view from our room was stunning and the tiny balcony with small table and chairs was a nice touch even though we went in January so too cold to make the most of it. The hotel is outdated and garish but overall the price was fair.... More

We went to this hotel for our Christmas dinner for the English club this year. While the first course of salmon was fine and even overly abundant, thereafter things fell apart. The pasta was cold and hard by the time we could eat it, the turkey was not a bird but a turkey roll, and the dessert came straight out... More

Outside the hotel i very nice, old building but refreshed. Inside first thing we noticed was ceiling plastic lightbox with drangons from cheap Japaneese cartoon. On the walls there were plenty of art from every kind of style, technic and part of the world, mixed together and with golden (plastic) frames. The owner called himself barone, lord, doctor and knight... More
