If you are lucky and got a room with lake view, you'll definitely like the experience. However, the breakfast is really bad. I would definitely not book the breakfast again. I believe the hotel had its glory 100 years ago, but this is long ago. One positive thing to note: the hotel features 3 parking slots right in front of...

Very nice place, the room very clean and the bad really comfortable. The bathroom bit old style but in the avarage, cleaning well done. We had the room with lake view, just in front of the jet eau. Really amazing view. Breakfast not really satisfied, less than average.

I enjoyed a lot this hotel, which is located right by the Lugano’s lake in Paradiso. If you walk 15 minutes along the lake you reach the city centre of Lugano. The staff turned out to be very friendly and helpful. I liked the big comfortable bed with clean duvets. The bathroom’s size is very decent too. Having breakfast while...

Having booked two junior suites for a business-trip in this 3-star hotel with classy face of the building and its location right at the lake, we thought that it sounds quite promising. Unfortunately, the experience started to fall short of our expectations right as we entered the hotel in the late afternoon: The reception looks like in an old movie...

Nice view to the lake, friendly and correct personell in reception and breakfast room, nothing missing. I personally like hotels that gives a personal touch on decoration, colours art etc, felt like a time trip... No alcohol in minibar though, just soft drinks and beer etc

The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk along the lake front from the town centre. We found multi level carpark almost opposite the hotel entrance (the entrance and reception is from the back of the hotel) and it cost E11 for 8 hours and E2 for each hour after that. The hotel has the potential to be beautiful but at...

We had two days only to see Lake Como. We chose Varenna as we were rail travellers and this hotel was an easy taxi drive from the station for only a few Euros. You could walk it but it's uphill and we had cases to lug. (BTW the coffee shop at the action is fabulous). We had a room with...

well, much of what has been written beforehand, we found to be true. The place is a little tired and in need of some loving attention, but to be honest it just about fitted our needs. The room was clean, bathroom as well, so no complaints. The bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world, and the pillows (if they...

A slightly tired traditional hotel whose main asset is its proximity to the Paradiso ferry terminal. Contrary to what I read on the booking engine, it did not have parking facilities and I paid a fortune in the underground garage across the road. My room was old fashioned but clean, with a view over the lake and the fountain. The...
